   Apr-27-17 Fischer vs Tal, 1962 (replies)
detritus: 45. Nd7 is halfway to a helpmate after 46. Re2. If the Knight retreats back to f8, it's just lost to 47. Re8+ (47. Kd7 and 48. Rxf8 anyways, and Black can choose whether to keep the rooks on the board). 46. b6 and 46. Nb6/Nf6 look like they'd all be met by 47. Re6, and ...
   Apr-15-17 Lu Shanglei vs Yiyi Xiao, 2016 (replies)
detritus: Kind of a weird Saturday puzzle in that the next several moves after White's first move are pretty obvious, but you have to be careful as to how White's bishop vacates the e-file. I went with 21. Bf6, but after Black's queen captures on f6 she covers h4, a crucial difference ...
   Feb-24-17 A Muzychuk vs Kosteniuk, 2017 (replies)
detritus: This is such a sad game to play through. Black's position is basically busted by 14. f3.
   Feb-15-17 Sandro Mareco (replies)
detritus: He just finished his 9/9 run in this tournament: He's moved up to #90 in the live ratings list.
   Jan-30-17 Averbakh vs Spassky, 1961 (replies)
detritus: Man, that h-pawn charge really wreaks havoc with White's position. Would 35. h4 from White have salvaged the position for him? I guess I don't understand what the point of 35. Rd2 was.
   Jan-27-17 Tradewise Gibraltar (2017) (replies)
detritus: Hou Yifan gets White against Mariya Muzychuk on Board 16 in Round 4.
   Jan-17-17 N Grandelius vs J Xiong, 2017 (replies)
detritus: Xiong is doing a nice job of bouncing back after the opening round loss to Ragger. He's up to #5 on the live ratings list for players from the USA after the win over Grandelius, and seems like a pretty good bet to be representing the US in the '18 Olympiad.
   Sep-21-16 Mariya Muzychuk (replies)
detritus: She'll be at 2532 Elo, #8 in the women's rating list, on 1 October. The month before she won the KO championship tournament, she was at 2528/#8. Was it really all a bubble? She looked like she might have had 2600 Elo in her for a brief while, but I guess the title loss took the ...
   Aug-31-16 S Shankland vs M Kraemer, 2016 (replies)
detritus: I think 19. Bxd7 also works for holding on to the exchange, though White's position is still pretty good. When the knight vacates f6 it allows White to go 20. Be7 with tempo, setting up the 21. Bd6 skewer.
   Apr-12-16 Yifan Hou (replies)
detritus: Hou isn't listed among the participants in Batumi for the third leg of the Women's 2015-16 Grand Prix: I guess she's dropping out of the women's championship cycle, perhaps never to return.
