Why did Fischer really not defend the title?

Was Capablanca the most principled player ever?

Could a human GM beat a computer in a 30 min human / 2 min computer time control?

Why did Kasparov have such a tough time with Kramnik?

How can the Muzio Gambit be a forced draw?

   Jan-19-21 Carlsen vs A Tari, 2021
SChesshevsky: Looks like Tari does his homework. Doesn't appear any white breakthrough yet in the 5...cxd4 line. Carlsen vs W So, 2020 Yeah, white looks better visually through out. But can he prove a decisive advantage?
   Jan-18-21 J K Duda vs N Grandelius, 2021
SChesshevsky: <...I also don't like that Duda's b pawn took 2 moves to reach b4.> JKD seems to be in a slump. Probably not happy with his results for awhile. Here his apparent 10. Ne1 idea rerouting the N to strengthen the reverse Dragon setup for Qside play just seems bad. Takes time ...
   Jan-17-21 Carlsen vs A Firouzja, 2021 (replies)
SChesshevsky: <Too much pressure on Black...> Yes, and Carlsen very comfortable with the attack in these semi-tarrasch exchange positions. Remember he beat Kramnik at least twice. And made fairly short work of Giri just a little while ago with the d5...exd5, e5 idea.
   Jan-16-21 Petrosian vs Korchnoi, 1971
SChesshevsky: <...Korchnoi's whole play is based on analysis...> Always thought Korchnoi had two "problems" in his style of play. Seems he was prone to enter into complications when unwarranted or even detrimental. And he was uncomfortable and not well suited for clearly passive ...
   Jan-16-21 Alireza Firouzja
SChesshevsky: Interesting game in Firouzja's loss to Carlsen. Appears Firouzja somehow blew it but probably not so straightforward. Opening looks like it eventually got to some sort of QGD semi-tarrasch exchange position. Computer likely says close to equal but this is practically very ...
   Jan-15-21 Fischer vs Korchnoi, 1962 (replies)
SChesshevsky: <...This is, I think, the only game in Fischer's career in which he fell into a book trap...> Did Fischer ever admit to being sloppy with 13. g4? Wondering if he went for it, probably over optimistically, and missed something later? Thinking he could have expected ...
   Jan-14-21 William James Lombardy (replies)
SChesshevsky: Related to the allegations against Lombardy, think it's important to note that the "news" release noted above, which I'm assuming is also the key source for the Post, was issued by the involved law firm. Also interesting was a previous topic related press release by the same ...
   Jan-14-21 Reshevsky vs Ed. Lasker, 1922
SChesshevsky: <Sammy was an incredible fighter.> True. But here there was a lot of suffering. A position almost certainly fatal but with just enough to make calling it quits unwarranted. Not very much fun for Reshevsky here. Generally reminds me of Petrosian - Fischer game 6? 1971 ...
   Jan-13-21 Reshevsky vs Fine, 1933 (replies)
SChesshevsky: <...could understand Petrosians games a lot better than he could Sammy's...> Reshevsky seemed to have an interesting style. If you can call it that. Starting with a very good positional sense, he added what I would call an alert greed. It always seemed Reshevsky was very ...
   Jan-11-21 Topalov vs Shirov, 1998
SChesshevsky: Was a great game. Shirov's 47...Bh3 was nice. Flashy, though the argument questioning its brilliance at the top GM level might have some merit. Possibly more impressive was his N maneuver starting 24...Nb6 which ends up taking advantage of the what looks like inaccurate 26. ...
