   Aug-07-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
erasmusdurer: Why is the Giuoco Piano suddenly so popular in this tournament?
   Mar-22-17 Larry Melvyn Evans (replies)
erasmusdurer: Happy Birthday, Larry. I enjoyed your chess columns very much. They were the first thing I always read in Chess Life. You are missed.

erasmusdurer: How do you guess the latest clue in the Holiday contest? I know the answer to Clue #20, but I don't know how to enter the contest.
   Mar-05-12 Robert James Fischer (replies)
erasmusdurer: Fischer was definitely afraid to play another match or tournament--with anybody. Everything I have read about him indicates he developed a very strong pathological fear of failure. If you have never had this fear, you do not know how debilitating it can be. The fear is totally ...

erasmusdurer: Karpov v. Unzicker was a great game. I studied it Monday night. It is amazing how Karpov completely tied up his opponent. His opponent helped him do so, however. In other instances where Karpov played the same opening (against Spassky for instance) his opponents had much more ...

   Jan-17-08 Carlsen vs N Ibraev, 2004 (replies)
erasmusdurer: I need recommendations for good chess software for analyzing openings and playing games. For example, is Chess Assistant any good? Please let me know what your experience has been with such software.
   Jun-08-07 Kamsky vs Gelfand, 2007 (replies)
erasmusdurer: Gelfand played a very smooth opening, gaining space and putting his pieces on good squares. He emerged from the opening slightly better than Kamsky. Kamsky couldn't make anything out of the positon in the middle game, where he made several questionable moves. Gelfand was ...
   May-18-07 Reshevsky vs Fine, 1941 (replies)
erasmusdurer: After getting whipped last night by an 11 year old chess whiz in our club's May Swiss, I am surprised I actually found Q x d5. Maybe all is not lost after all.

erasmusdurer: Another Monday puzzle--on Wed!
