   Mar-01-19 V Fedoseev vs Carlsen, 2019
djvanscoy: A funny curiosity: the position after Carlsen's 56th move in this game is the same as the position after Fischer's 50th move in his 1962 game against Svetozar Gligorić at the Stokholm Interzonal ( Gligoric vs Fischer, 1962 ). In both games White played Re6; after that, ...
   Dec-28-18 M Song vs A Botez, 2011
djvanscoy: I'm confused: why did Black win this game? In the final position, White can simply play 51.Rxa8 and it's a draw, is it not?

djvanscoy: <ChessHigherCat: I know a lot about privacy issues, I work with those contracts and privacy policies all the time, and I know specifically about the privacy issues in relation to web services, and it's mostly a lot of hyped-up nonsense about the use of anonymous data for ...
   Jul-21-18 Koneru vs A Rudolf, 2009
djvanscoy: When this game was played, Koneru was the No. 2 woman in the world. (Judit Polgár was No. 1; the 15-year-old Hou Yifan was No. 3.) Oddly, 23...Bg7 seems to be a mistake, despite the natural appearance of the fianchetto here. The move 23...Bg4 puts up a stronger defense. White ...
   Jul-20-18 D Derakhshani vs R C S Alvarez, 2017
djvanscoy: I'm confused: why is the score 0-1? After Black's last move, White plays 43.Kg1, and the position is equal, isn't it? Strange game. It looks like White blundered with 22.Qh5 (better was 22.Qh3) and again with 24.Nxd5 (better was 24.Qe2). Black then had a winning position. But ...
   Jul-18-18 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
djvanscoy: <AylerKupp> Actually, the AlphaZero team's preprint said they were running Stockfish on 64 threads, not 64 cores. My guess is that that means 32 physical cores with hyperthreading (I speculated on the specific CPUs in my previous post). There is some debate over how ...
   Jul-09-18 J Gustafsson vs Svidler, 2007 (replies)
djvanscoy: Both sides play the first 13 moves of game 3 of the 1987 Kasparov-Karpov championship match. Then one new move by White, and they agree to a draw. What was going on here?
   Jul-08-18 Robatsch vs Fischer, 1965 (replies)
djvanscoy: <perfidious: ... Robatsch cabled Fischer after the game to ask where he had gone wrong and was astonished to be told that the whole variation was worthless.> Perhaps Fischer's low opinion of this opening was shaped by the fact that as a 16-year-old Fischer played it as White
   Jul-01-18 Charousek vs K Schneider, 1891 (replies)
djvanscoy: <MuzioFan>, in your variation, what if Black plays 13...cxd6 instead of 13...Bg7? Black can develop his bishop to f5 and his knight to f6 (sorry, this is the one time in the Muzio that it works). Here White is down two pieces for three pawns, and I don't think Black is ...
   May-18-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
djvanscoy: <Richard Taylor: ... Jan Gustafsson watches too many crapulous movies ... > "Leaving Las Vegas" or "One for the Road" or "My Favorite Year"? I'm trying to think what might qualify as a crapulous movie.
