   Sep-13-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
geeker: <Sally Simpson:...But I do hope Berlin does not use that awful picture (you will know it when you see it) to publicise this event.> Indeed. What a ghastly image! When I first saw it on Chessbase site I had to avert my eyes. After reading your post, I forced myself to look, and ...
   Sep-10-17 M Matlakov vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
geeker: Thanks, fisayo123. I recall the Svidler-Hou game. It's the Semi-Tarrasch line often used as a drawing weapon by Kramnik that I've long disliked (see Aronian vs Kramnik, 2017 ), but this seems no less unappetizing for Black.
   Jul-25-17 Ponomariov vs Leko, 2017 (replies)
geeker: I'd like to see GM analysis of this game...After 15...R:d8, I assumed it was heading for an uneventful draw, but 32...Kg6 seems to have been bad (potential forks on e5), and Black lost quickly. Great positional play by White, or errors by Black?
   Jul-24-17 N Studer vs Leko, 2017 (replies)
geeker: Doggone, Leko playing the Benoni! I do recall PL saying that he needed to spice up his opening repertoire in order to score in Open events.
   Jul-24-17 Biel (2017) (replies)
geeker: Leko sacs the exchange in the opening! (OK, it may have been theory for all I know). But then he wins!
   Feb-13-17 Women's World Championship Knockout Tournament (2017) (replies)
geeker: The "online broadcast" at chess24 is completely FUBAR. Impossible to follow the event. No surprise.
   Apr-26-16 N Pogonina vs N Dudareva, 2006 (replies)
geeker: Tougher than usual puzzles so far this week. With regard to the underlying game, I have to make the "Big Lebowski"-like comment that the Dude did not abide.
   Mar-17-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
geeker: Congratulations to Aronian? I was wondering why he was playing on in a drawn position...and then I saw the reason.
   Jan-17-16 Ju Wenjun vs A Dreev, 2016 (replies)
geeker: Yes, interesting how the veteran Dreev was content to exchange all the pieces and win the endgame.
   Oct-14-15 A Goryachkina vs A Nasybullina, 2014 (replies)
geeker: <Gregor Samsa Mendel: I found this to be easier than yesterday's puzzle.> Agreed.
