   Apr-02-22 So vs Nakamura, 2015
 
erniecohen: I can't believe I missed this game the first time around. (Svidler just mentioned it while commenting on the Grand Prix final.) Great game combined with one of the better puns in recent memory.
 
   Mar-18-22 Bogoljubov vs Ahues, 1930 (replies)
 
erniecohen: <al wazir> Stockfish says it's even after 30. ♖eg1 ♕xg1+ 31. ♖xg1+ ♔xh7 32. exf4 ♖e4 33. f5 ♖xe4+ 34. ♔e2 ♖f4 35. ♖g5. But Black can interpose 29... ♕f3+ to eliminate the pin.
 
   Feb-20-22 P Lafuente vs Shredder, 2005
 
erniecohen: <thegoldenband> MD5 hashes are 128 bits; the chance of hitting a collision in a 128-bit random function really is astronomical. Finding MD5 collisions depends on structural weaknesses in the hash function itself. It's far from trivial; it took mathematicians about 15 years ...
 
   Feb-12-22 Ganguly vs Kryvoruchko, 2018 (replies)
 
erniecohen: Not exactly a convincing POD. Stockfish seems to think Black has a draw up to move 69.
 
   Feb-10-22 A Esipenko vs Nakamura, 2022 (replies)
 
erniecohen: I assume the worst part of being a GM is being humiliated by the computer in the postgame interview when the moves you say were good were actually bad and vice versa.
 
   Jan-23-22 A Istratescu vs Golubev, 1994 (replies)
 
erniecohen: Perhaps add a stockfish filter to daily puzzles to avoid cooks?
 
   Jan-23-22 Tassilo von der Lasa (replies)
 
erniecohen: Chessmetrics reckons von der Lasa world #1 for 15 months, and in the top 2 for 4 years.
 
   Jan-06-22 R Steel vs J Mason, 1883
 
erniecohen: Too soon on the pun.
 
   Dec-03-21 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 (replies)
 
erniecohen: <keypusher: 12.Nce5 Nb4! and Black is fine.> 13.♕b1 and Black is in some trouble. But 12...♗d4 seems okay.
 
   Nov-29-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
 
erniecohen: <jphamlore> I think there is something to be said for allowing players to agree in advance to make a game unrated, even in a tournament. (Of course, for a norm, all of your games must be rated.)
