   Feb-12-16 B Lalic vs L Trent, 2008 (replies)
 
framsey: For once, giving up quickly on the puzzle when I didn't see anything promising turned out to be right!
 
   Oct-09-15 Pomar Salamanca vs Geller, 1962 (replies)
 
framsey: I'm confused. I saw 20.f5, but then didn't see how to proceed after 20...f6. That seems to give white an edge, but not the clear winning advantage you expect from a tactics puzzle. Stockfish agrees and calls that line +0.86.
 
   Sep-30-15 World Cup (2015) (replies)
 
framsey: I must say, I am not too happy with the two finalists. I don't view Svidler as being championship material, and as long as such a player is playing in the candidates, I would prefer it be someone having the tournament of his life (like Eljanov), or a young person who still has ...
 
   Sep-19-15 M Magomedov vs J Isaev, 1999 (replies)
 
framsey: Ah, -1 for not seeing 32...Qe5+.
 
   Sep-18-15 A Matanovic vs H Kramer, 1951 (replies)
 
framsey: Ah, checked with Stockfish. This is a forced draw: 73. Ra7+ Kh6 74. Ra8 h2 75. Rh8+ Nh7 76. Rg7 and white is threatening mate on g6, so Ng5, and repeat. Draw.
 
   Sep-03-15 Svidler vs Khismatullin, 2015 (replies)
 
framsey: I appreciate that Denis played out the mate rather than resigning. Personally I hate the practice of resigning midway through a forced mating sequence. The game will be over in a moment anyway, so why not show it on the board?

framsey: I'm not sure that the Anand we're seeing here is better than the Anand we saw against Magnus in November. Maybe he's just facing weaker opponents.

framsey: Magnus is content to draw as black, that is clear. If he has an advantage he will press it, but he is content to steer for a drawish position. I wonder if he could push his rating up even higher if he played for an unbalanced position as black more often.
 
   Dec-09-13 G Kuzmin vs An Airapetian, 1981 (replies)
 
framsey: Contra several comments above, this is NOT clearance. If we removed the rook from g7, Qf7 would not be mate because of Qg1+, and the Q covers the g file. Rather, this is attraction, since the rook sacrifice attracts the king to h7, which makes Qf7 check, and so gives an essential ...
 
   Dec-07-13 London Chess Classic Open (2013) (replies)
 
framsey: <BobbieM: Shame its not a proper tournament this year!> Indeed. This was one of my favorite tournaments to follow the last few years.
