   Nov-21-20 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
devere: "Election Fallout Reveals Battle Between Freedom and Communism" <A choice that transcends the political right and left>
   Nov-20-20 Chiburdanidze vs V Malaniuk, 1982 (replies)
devere: 24...Rxe6 is a better defense, but White can still win with 25. Nxe6 fxe6 26. Qe3 Kf7 27. Qf3+ Kg8 28. Qe4 Kf7 29. Bxe6+ Qxe6 30. Qxb7+ Kf6 31. Qxa8 Bg7 32. Qd8+ Kf7 33. Qc7+
   Nov-15-20 Ulibin vs Lautier, 1989 (replies)
devere: Instead of 17. Qxb7 White should have played 17.Bf4(threatening 18.Nb5) and if 17...a6 18. Rad1 Nbd7 19. g5, and then either 19...Ng8 20.Ne4 Rxf4 21.Qxg8+, or 19...Nh5 20.Bd6 Rf7 21.Nd5, in either case with decisive advantage to White.
   Nov-14-20 Kramnik vs Beliavsky, 1993 (replies)
devere: Nice combination to win a pawn, but the rook ending was a tablebase draw up to move 59
   Nov-09-20 Gufeld vs Tal, 1959 (replies)
devere: <This is not at-all a Monday-strength puzzle in my opinion; more like Wednesday.> Correct.
   Nov-01-20 Shirov vs Karjakin, 2008 (replies)
devere: 26.Nd4 is the best winning chance. Both Shirov and Karjakin must have missed 26...Bxd7 27.Ba3+ c5!! which gives Black decent drawing chances in either an opposite color Bishops or R+N vs 2 R ending. Chess is a difficult game!
   Oct-31-20 US Championship (2020) (replies)
devere: Calling a rapid tournament the US chess championship is very regrettable.
   Oct-26-20 Pillsbury vs A J Conen, 1899 (replies)
devere: Nice game by Conen. Beating a World-class grandmaster in a simul is every ordinary chess player's dream.
