   May-01-19 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2018 (replies)
colinb8: <PawnSac> That comment has just been replied to by <Mayankk> and me: the 50 move rule is (i) no captures *and* (ii) no pawn moves; in the game you commented on there were two pawn moves exactly on the 50 move limit. Also, from I ...
   May-01-19 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018
colinb8: <PawnSac> (Written just before - but posted just after! - <Mayankk> commented.) I thought the 50 move rule was (i) no captures *and* (ii) no pawn moves. Here - as <Mayankk> observed - there are two pawn moves exactly on ...
   Nov-16-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
colinb8: <Richard Taylor> From Tom Stoppard's 2015 play "The Hard Problem": Challenging the arrogant Amal (Parth Thakerar) who says computers play chess undistinguishably from humans she [the main character who is a psychologist] asks “Can you make a computer that minds losing?“ ...
   Nov-16-18 A Dole vs Van Hai Nguyen, 2008 (replies)
colinb8: Doesn't this transpose fairly quickly into a Sicilian Defence Accelerated Dragon?
   Feb-17-18 Susan Polgar (replies)
colinb8: <HeMateMe> Its address is 44 Baker Street, and it's a chess & bridge shop!
   Feb-07-18 Hou - Karpov Match (2018) (replies)
colinb8: <Petrosianic: Ratings don't tell the whole story. I'd rather play a 2200 player who's never been any higher than that than a 2200 player who's a former 2400 player. You never know when he might start playing at 2400 level again.> Quite right!
   Jun-28-17 Emanuel Lasker (replies)
colinb8: <john barleycorn> We know that Lasker was a good (I'm not claiming world-class) mathematician - part of the biography above seems to an almost verbatim copy of some of the text from this mathematics (not chess) website: ... Although ...
   Mar-19-17 E Tate vs Chibukhchian, 2013 (replies)
colinb8: <Abdel Irada: If you want to see this idea properly dramatized, read Virgil's description of the Achaean irruption into Priam's sanctum in the _Aeneid_. "And the lamentations of the women beat against the golden stars" will give you an idea of the flavor.> I'm very impressed: ...
   Feb-26-17 Yifan Hou (replies)
colinb8: <zanzibar> Korean surnames are also usually single syllable. For easy sorting of names the "Surname, Given name(s)" format seems a good choice, and it's also (I hope) unambiguous for names that consist of a family name and a given name. Choosing a player at semi-random: ...
   Aug-15-15 V Raicevic vs Suba, 1974 (replies)
colinb8: <GrahamClayton>Suba mentions that this is the only game where he played 3...e4.<GrahamClayton> To be precise, and using Suba's own words in the "extended and updated" 2010 edition of "Dynamic Chess Strategy" published by New In Chess: [This was] the first (and last but ...
