   Jul-14-22 Teichmann vs J Mieses, 1910 (replies)
estrick: Also known as the Fantasy Variation, Teichmann shows us how to punish the move 5. . . . exd4?
   Dec-12-21 Nepomniachtchi vs K Alekseenko, 2021 (replies)
estrick: Between 2011 and 2017 the move 8. . . . Be7 was played seven times. The first time resulted in a 57 move draw. The next six times that move was played, the player with black pieces lost every game. Then, it seems that the move was retired from Master level play, until Alekseenko ...
   Oct-13-21 Flohr vs R Pitschak, 1930
estrick: Flohr at 21, was six years younger than his opponent, and had not yet reached peak form when this game was played.
   Nov-10-20 R Nezhmetdinov vs Kasparian, 1955 (replies)
estrick: Kasparov had fun selecting the games used in The Queen's Gambit, and adding fantasy variations
   Feb-09-20 M Antipov vs G Jones, 2020
estrick: . Ouch! You don't see 2600's just hang a rook like this very often
   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 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 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 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 ...
