katar: Akobian presented this game in a video:
   Jan-04-12 Tarrasch vs Alapin, 1902
katar: <zydeco> Sorry, I forgot to insert a couple moves: 13.axb4 Bxb4 14.O-O d4? 15.Nxd4 Qxd4?? 16.Bxh7+ Therefore I believe that 13.Ne2 was unnecessary and a big mistake. Unless I am mistaken 13.axb4 would have given White an advantage.

katar: The first 10 moves of this game are recited in the French movie Joueuse ("Queen to Play").
   Jan-21-11 Tata Steel Group A (2011) (replies)
katar: <Creg> Re: Naka's coach/second: in the past year Naka has had a second who is only about 2100 or 2200 in strength but apparently knows Naka's style and preferences and is a computer hardware expert-- which is no coincidence since Naka's prep is heavily computer based.

katar: "Richard Palliser" writes so many great chess books that i happen to think that "Richard Palliser" is the pseudonym of a writing team of at least 8-10 full-time chess authors.

katar: I've been looking at Keene & Jacobs book, An Opening Repertoire for White, Holt 1995. I noticed that the book recommends virtually all of Mr. Remlinger's favorite lines from the early 1990's, including the Deferred Samisch Nimzo, the Nge2-g3 KID, the Exchange QG with 0-0-0, the ...
   May-13-10 Miles vs J Horner, 1973
katar: This game deserves to be better known. One of the terrific fighting games of all time, in my opinion.
   Feb-24-10 B G Smith vs J Kraai, 2009
katar: WOW, what an exciting game!
