   Mar-17-19 M Sibilio vs S Mariotti, 1982 (replies)
The Long Diagonal: This would make a great spoiler puzzle.
   Jul-13-18 M Czerniak vs J Bednarski, 1963
The Long Diagonal: 53. .. Rb1 wins on the spot, threatening mate in one, and white has no tricks or cheapos whatsoever. Hard to believe that 53. .. Ke5?? actually happened on the board.
   Feb-22-18 S P Sethuraman vs Kulaots, 2018 (replies)
The Long Diagonal: Very weird indeed. I face ...Qa5? every now and then and win a pawn with the Nd5 trick but that happens in blitz and my opponents are mainly sub 2000 players, certainly no GMs.
   Sep-13-17 R K Delaune vs F Rhine, 1997
The Long Diagonal: This game had always escaped my attention before but now I noticed this, thanks to GOTD "Fred Rhine fell." And the first kibitz on this site reminded me of Nigel Short's recent comment. "When I was preparing against my opponent and going through his games as black, I ...

   Jan-29-17 Nepomniachtchi vs So, 2017 (replies)
The Long Diagonal: So winning the game is not a huge surprise itself. But a 2700+ GM being lost with white in 8 moves is something abnormal. There have been conspiracy theories created on much less than this. Not that I would believe in conspiracy theories and I don't want to take anything ...
   Nov-17-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
The Long Diagonal: Cucurbit: Karpov-Korchnoi 1981.
   Dec-23-15 S Guramishvili vs R Vogel, 2015 (replies)
The Long Diagonal: <I think the vast majority of people think it's poor sportsmanship, and it's the culture of the game, after all, that drives the unwritten rules.> I am definitely not for playing on in hopeless positions, in fact I have sometimes been accused of resigning too early, ...
   Dec-16-15 O B Vea vs F B Jacobsen, 2014 (replies)
The Long Diagonal: Always check, it can be a mate. The end of this game reminded me of those blitz games where your opponent is threatening a mate in one and you have no defence, but your opponent only has 5 seconds in the clock and you have two or three spite checks left. So, you just play
