   Aug-07-15 M Biyachuev vs I Klimshin, 2012 (replies)
TheGreatNN: Why is this game here?
   Nov-27-05 Estrin vs Taimanov, 1949 (replies)
TheGreatNN: On second thought, the game may have been lost before move 10, if 12. ..Kf8 should turn out to be no good. Otherwise I think 12. ..g6 was the losing move, although 13. ..Qc7 may have been better than the line played -14.Qf7+ Kf8 15.Qg7 Rf8 16.Qxh7. I don't see a forced win, but I
   Nov-22-05 Ruy Lopez, Bird's Defense (C61) (replies)
TheGreatNN: Does anyone know the proper defense against 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nd4 4.Bc4 Bc5 5.Nxd4 ? If 5. ..exd4?? then 6.Qh5 and if 5. ..Bxd4 then 6.c3 Bb6 7.d4 looks like an absolute mess to me. Is 4. ..Bc5 no good?
   Nov-22-05 Hort vs Chandler, 1982 (replies)
TheGreatNN: Sorry didnt read close enough. 24. ..Qxe4 is followed by 25. Rg1 g6 26. Qh6 then winning the exchange on g6, probably with mate in a few moves.
   Nov-22-05 T Fogarasi vs D Breder, 2000 (replies)
TheGreatNN: Oops - 45. Qxf6+ Kxh7 46. Rh4+ Kg8 47. R/Qh8# Pretty bad.
   Sep-21-05 Four Knights (C48) (replies)
TheGreatNN: I used to like to play 4. ..Nd4 after the above position, but can somebody please explain to me why this does not fail against 5.Bc4 Bc5 6.Nxe5 Qe7 7.Nxf7? There are no examples of this in the database: in the nine games that followed this line, white played 7.Nd3 or Nf3, yet ...
   Dec-18-04 Eliascheff vs NN, 1948 (replies)
TheGreatNN: Oops that was a year ago, not today!
   Nov-25-04 M Marks vs H F L Meyer, 1867 (replies)
TheGreatNN: I don't think it was slightly absurd, maybe just eggregiously unusual. It is probably true that the American system of money indirectly controlling the government is conducive to corruption, but from a fiscal point of view this is more than made up for by its helping business so ...
   Nov-24-04 Bird's Opening (A02) (replies)
TheGreatNN: Also I have found 1. ..c5 to be the most effective move against the bird. In any case it is more agressive than alternatives as it gives black lasting counterplay on the queenside. You probably should know the sicilian though, and if you don't 1. ..d5 is much easier to learn. ...

TheGreatNN: Umm, that was a different book, y'know!
