"One of the things about Art is, you give people an excuse to take some time, to be quiet, and pay attention to something... And, maybe under the guise of enjoyment, think about important things in Life."

achieve: Hi <Moro> - I may be off line for a few days - but you are right in that I at an advanced age see things I did not see at all, one being that the Scheveningen defence is one of the sharpest around, and that Kasparov for good reason amended by playing ...a6 prior to ...e6. The ...
   Aug-30-19 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
achieve: It's called "divide and conquer" - at least it was back in the old days. He likes for Ding to bathe in the sun for a first time, if only briefly.. Carlsen is a big boy now, his pressconferences are unrecognizable compared to some 3-5 years ago.

   Aug-04-19 V S Gujrathi vs S Bogner, 2019 (replies)
achieve: Very nice game by the Indian AlphaZero, as Daniel King wrote in the Power Play Chessvideo header about <Vidit>. Though it's hard to understand how a GM can play so utterly clueless, not at all in touch with development and piece activity... Bogner did baaad, very bad.
   Jun-21-19 R Raubitschek vs Capablanca, 1906
achieve: Sterling finish after a fine middlegame by Capa. This is the 3rd game in the Euwe/Prins book on Capablanca (1949) - there is a 6-year gap in between the Corso match (1900) and the Raubitschek games in 1906... I'll have to check the database on young Jose Raul's exploits in his ...

achieve: Hi <Susan> - apologies for the long absence, reasons for which I in part posted at <moronovich> forum. Personally, I am a true audiophile, and can just enjoy films for their scores, the way actors pronounce, the way it is all mixed. Without watching. Topping my list is ...
   Feb-06-19 Carlsen vs Anand, 2019 (replies)
achieve: <Eyal: Several people already mentioned that 70...b5? (instead of bxa5!) was the losing move, but it should be noted that 70...bxa5 works for a <very> concrete reason, which requires precise calculation: 71.Kd5 Nf4+! > I disagree with the notion that it requires precise

   Dec-01-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
achieve: <Imagine the FIFA World Cup being decided by a futsal game.> Overtime and penalty shootout are pretty much equivalent to a Rapid format to determine a tie in Classical Chess, either that or declare Carlsen the winner, as Caruana was the challenger.
