   Sep-15-19 R H Steinmeyer vs Berliner, 1959 (replies)
erniecohen: <newsild>: 34...bxf4 wins just fine (35. Bxc5 Be3+). So the problem is indeed sort of cooked. (Sort of because after the exchange on f4 you still need to play a2.)
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
erniecohen: I find it amusing that, in the initial position, Sesse already has 66 tablebase hits in its analysis.
   Mar-06-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
erniecohen: From the department of perspective: the Fischer-Spassky championship was closer in time to the Alekhine-Capablanca championship match than it is to today.
   Nov-30-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
erniecohen: By my count, Karjakin made 4 moves after the Q exchange that turned drawn positions into losses, so perhaps we shouldn't be overpraising his defense in this game.
   Nov-30-16 G Barcza vs Smyslov, 1956 (replies)
erniecohen: <KingDeath> After looking at it more carefully, I'm confident enough in my appraisal of the rook endgame (referred to in "like this" above) being drawn that I'm willing to give 100/1 odds, for up to $100 (vs $10k), that I can draw a postal with Black in the position after ...
   Nov-29-16 R Steel vs NN, 1884 (replies)
erniecohen: <Rookiepawn: <erniecohen: 20...Rd5 0-1> I thought about 21. Bc4 ... And then 21 ... Qxh1 22. Kb6! Qxg2 23. Bxd5 ... A little bit dizzy... But I think 22. Kb6 would be a good idea. Black now has to trade its Q in e5 after taking in d5 and White keeps an advantage. ...
   Nov-29-16 Capablanca vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1913 (replies)
erniecohen: <inmate5: <erniecohen: Both Capablanca and Burgess got this one wrong. After 35. ♕d4 ♕e2 36. ♕xd3 ♖b2+ 37. ♔c1 ♖d8 38. ♕xe2 ♖xe2 it is Black who has a probable win; he is up an exchange for a pawn, has a ♖ on the 7th ...
   Apr-21-16 Estrin vs Berliner, 1965 (replies)
erniecohen: <tdh1967> Hi! Sorry for the long delay in answering, I just now saw your post. Email me at and we can arrange something.
   Mar-23-16 Viktor Korchnoi (replies)
erniecohen: 4425 games in the database. Who has the record?
   Mar-23-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
erniecohen: Give Giri a break. Schlechter was the Mr. Draw of his day, but was still a great player who played a great WC match with Lasker.
