   Oct-02-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
estrick: . FWIW, Radjabov was born the same year as Nakamura. His peak rating was seven years ago when he reached #4 in the world rankings with 2793. Interesting to see a resurgence after several years of what must have been disappointing results for him.
   Aug-28-19 Carlsen vs W So, 2019 (replies)
estrick: . Carlsen also offered a 'fantasy variation' that would have resulted in "a terrible zugzwang" that Seirawan said would have landed Carlsen in "the torture museum." If Wesley So had not lashed out in desperation with 34. ...f5, Magnus was hoping for something like: 34. ...f6 35. ...
   Aug-26-19 Karjakin vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2019 (replies)
estrick: MVL could have resigned, but elected to allow Karjakin to checkmate him. The announcers lauded him for his sportsmanship.
   Aug-24-19 Caruana vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2019 (replies)
estrick: These guys are so good, and so well prepared that it's really, really hard for them to get a win against each other
   Aug-08-19 Capablanca vs Tarrasch, 1914 (replies)
estrick: The chess engine says that Capa's mistake was not moving the wrong rook on his 13th move, but the blunder he made on move 14. Instead of 14. Qg3? He should have played 14. Rd6 Bxf3 15. Rxf6 gxf6 16. Bxe5 Bxe4 17. Bd4 Bxc2 18. f3 which would have given White a small ...
   Jul-04-19 Ding Liren vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
estrick: Maurice Ashley did a great interview with Carlsen's father, Henrik, yesterday. Among other things, Henrik talked about Magnus' period of dominance in 2013-2014, and what it took for Magnus to get back to that level in 2019. Henrik mentioned Magnus' strict regimen of diet, exercise, ...
   Dec-09-18 L D'Costa vs Kharlov, 2005
estrick: 31. ...Bf4? Big blunder
   Nov-21-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
estrick: Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and Caruana will have white. It would be fitting if Rd 10 were to be the one where Fabi breaks through. Then he could have a great feast after the game.
   Nov-13-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
estrick: Personally, I like the 12 game format. I lose interest in matches that drag on for 30 or 40 games or more. I think of it like a 12 round boxing match. In the past they used to have boxers go an unlimited number of rounds until someone got knocked out or otherwise couldn't answer the
   Apr-06-18 Showalter vs Pillsbury, 1897
estrick: Pillsbury stated that he erred on move 27. However, Fritz says that 27. ...Bxg5 IS The Best move. The problem is, he was already losing badly by that point (-4.6). Move 23 is where Pillsbury went wrong. If 23. ... Re7, and the evaluation is only 0.1 in White's favor. With 23. ...
