   Jul-01-22 Caruana vs Ding Liren, 2022 (replies)
jerseybob: Wow, an update in posted results and it's not good news for Fabby. Looks like we're due for Magnus-Nepo II(and no I don't believe Magnus is stepping down!). As for the game itself, if facing the Marshall is so distasteful, (kind of like the Berlin before the 4.d3 fad) and you must
   Jun-28-22 Firouzja vs Rapport, 2022 (replies)
jerseybob: <Ulhumbrus: Instead of 9...d6, 9...0-0 prepares to answer the potential threat of f2-f4 by ...d5.(Agreed) If 20...Qxb2 gives White time to prevent Black from castling by Qf2 and Bc5, 20...Qe5 may be more advisable.> Even so, without the dark bishop black's in trouble. 21.Qb4
   Jun-27-22 Nepomniachtchi vs Firouzja, 2022
jerseybob: <LRLeighton: 6 f3 is just a transposition and any GM playing either side of the Najdorf would be familiar with it. It is certainly not passive.> I agree that it's not passive, and comparisons with Lombardy-Fischer don't work for me. MCO-10(which I've lost) mentions the f3 ...
   Jun-26-22 Nakamura vs Caruana, 2022 (replies)
jerseybob: Shades of Smyslov-Botvinnik '43: Torture!
   Jun-26-22 Firouzja vs Caruana, 2022
jerseybob: <tamar: At age 19 Fischer had already played in one Candidates, but experienced a shaky start in CuraƧao 1962....Fischer lashed out...Will Firouzja do something similar?> I don't see that happening, thank God. Alireza's obviously not ready to be the challenger this time ...
   Jun-26-22 Eliskases vs Stein, 1966
jerseybob: This game is in the Stein book, btw. I get the feeling Eliiskases had never seen this line before. White's ultra-careful play is red meat for Stein.
   Jun-25-22 Reshevsky vs J Rubinetti, 1966
jerseybob: <Gregor Samsa Mendel: <jerseybob>--I did a little poking around with The Computer, and It thinks that white was doing just fine until he threw away his winning chances with 23 Qxb4 and his drawing chances with 24 Bc5. Perhaps, considering what I know about Reshevsky, he ...
   Jun-25-22 Pilnik vs Stein, 1966
jerseybob: <areknames: There is nothing wrong with Black's position until 29...f6. Instead the logical 29...Bxd2 followed by Ke7 centralizing the K leads to equality, as the b6 pawn will eventually fall.> You could be right about that, but I'm trying to figure out why white didn't play
   Jun-23-22 R C Cruz vs Stein, 1965
jerseybob: <nizmo11: Stein could have drawn with 30...Qxf2+ 31.Kh2 Nxc1 when White needs to take the perpetual. But maybe he was still playing for a win and missed the strength of 33.Bxg4.> Well if Stein can misjudge a position, so can I! You're right about 30..Qxf2+
   Jun-18-22 R Calvo vs Korchnoi, 1966 (replies)
jerseybob: <RookFile: Fischer felt the same way, and felt so strongly about not playing Reshevsky at 11 am that he forfeited the match to him based upon this principle.> It wasn't just the starting time per se, it was the fact Fischer felt the organizers had lied to him, changing the ...
