   Dec-14-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
jphamlore: <amadeus: Nice interview from ChessBase India> I sometimes think ChessBase India are the only ones doing actual chess journalism.
   Dec-05-21 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 (replies)
jphamlore: Magnus had to play 20. c4 to give Nepo a chance to go wrong. I wonder if he saw the trap well in advance and intuited that Nepo would miss it.
   Nov-27-21 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 (replies)
jphamlore: This is just sad to see another world championship match devolve into Magnus' opponent hoping Magnus beats himself overreaching with the white pieces.
   Oct-14-21 Silman vs Smyslov, 1976
jphamlore: One source of confusion may be in my copy of Smyslov's Best Games Volume II: 1958-1995, for game no. 273, the name of the White player is (incorrectly) given as "Speelman".
   Oct-12-21 Huebner vs Smyslov, 1968
jphamlore: Ken Neat's translation of Smyslov's annotations for this game can be found both in the books Smyslov's Best Games Volume II and Vasily Smyslov: Endgame Virtuoso. Smyslov's finish of this game illustrates an astonishing number of the principles of endgame strategy.
   Oct-11-21 Ljubojevic vs Petrosian, 1981 (replies)
jphamlore: <RookFile: I'm surprised Petrosian didn't use this more than he did.> You are right. It's incredible how insanely good Petrosian was at snuffing out any White chances for a dangerous imbalance in about 20 moves in the Petroff. Kramnik has written he thought Petrosian was ...
   Aug-23-21 Xiong vs Caruana, 2021 (replies)
jphamlore: It's seems to me Xiong played a reversed Gruenfeld and eventually got excellent results. I can't help but think of this game Carlsen vs Caruana, 2014 where Carlsen did the same for another (neo) Gruenfeld variant playing it in reverse as White. I just don't think this type of game
   Aug-08-21 Flohr vs Capablanca, 1936 (replies)
jphamlore: Could Capablanca had he had the time and if he were playing his best have saved this game? No doubt, because a good argument can be made he is the greatest player of all time. That does not change this game as being one of the most fundamental and important games anyone learning ...
   Aug-05-21 World Cup (2021) (replies)
jphamlore: Duda has arrived and it's a great thing for chess. He is the first player much younger than Carlsen who I think could give Carlsen an interesting match. He is also a university student who nonetheless seems to be deliberately pushing himself to become a universal type of chess ...
   Jun-13-21 GCT Bucharest Classic (2021) (replies)
jphamlore: I don't recall Caruana losing a game at classical chess ever in such a fashion as he did to Mamedyarov. I hope he isn't being affected by something outside of chess.
