I like Lady Day in jazz and Larry Day in chess.

   Nov-18-14 Carlsen - Anand World Championship Match (2014) (replies)
Sem: <GiuocoPianoMan> I was born in Groningen, in 1946 (the year of the Tournament). As a teenager I learned that in the last game of the match Alekhine vs Euwe (1935), Alekhine wore an evening dress to honour his opponent. Tempora mutantur.
   Oct-24-13 Janowski vs Lasker, 1910 (replies)
Sem: According to Euwe Lasker played the opening quite carelessly and he was lost after Janowski's 10th move. But then his fighting instinct reared its head, the very quality that Euwe so admired in him.
   Oct-07-13 Le Quang Liem vs A Deviatkin, 2013
Sem: Can't help you - I'm missing the point, too.
   Sep-21-13 von der Lasa vs P Bilguer, 1837 (replies)
Sem: Beautiful. And a noble gesture from Heydebrand to name only Bilguer as the author.
   Sep-18-13 V Muratov vs B Baranov, 1964 (replies)
Sem: Ouch!
   Sep-14-13 A Csank vs Albin, 1890 (replies)
Sem: Pawn on e6, probably?
   Aug-30-13 A de Bruijne vs F De Paolis, 2013
Sem: 9. ... Bd6 was tempting the gods.
   Aug-27-13 V Makogonov vs Botvinnik, 1940 (replies)
Sem: IMO 31. ... Nd8 leaves the initiative to White.
   Aug-18-13 B Gurgenidze vs Tal, 1957 (replies)
Sem: There's no playing against this. Hein Donner always felt relieved after having resigned to Tal.
   Aug-16-13 Spassky vs K Langeweg, 1967 (replies)
Sem: If you fast click through the game, you'll see that Black is only busy defending himself.
