   May-24-20 Yu Yangyi vs Ding Liren, 2020 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: White's 61st was an unusual sacrifice. Yu sacrificed his bishop not for the position, but for the purpose of making his opponent spend a precious 2 seconds figuring out what was going on.
 
   Mar-26-20 World Championship Candidates (2020) (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: <If we're following the 1985 precedent, scores must be voided and restart at 0.> From the announcement on FIDE's website, it seems like the players agreed before the tournament started that results could carry over if the tournament was suspended.
 
   Feb-15-20 V S Gujrathi vs M Ragger, 2020
 
kevinatcausa: It's a strange opening -- Black spends 3 of their first 5 moves on a Knight that immediately gets traded off.
 
   Feb-15-20 Prague Chess Festival (Masters) (2020) (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: 15 out of 20 matches so far have been between 30 and 45 moves (and another at 46).
 
   Jan-07-20 I Bilek vs F Kuijpers, 1966 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: This was easier having already seen yesterday's puzzle.

kevinatcausa: There are 16 colors in clue 20, each appearing exactly 4 times. There's a lot of overlap between these colors and the old EGA color standard, but not a complete overlap.
 
   Jan-16-18 Kramnik vs Svidler, 2018 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: Even before move 18, it feels like Svidlerís in a bad spot in terms of space and development.
 
   Jan-18-17 Hebden vs R Cantero, 1986 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: For me this didn't feel like a particularly easy Wednesday, mainly because of the need to work through why Qd8 doesn't do enough for black to keep things together.

kevinatcausa: <OBIT:> How about Mack the Knife? Though in that case I'm not sure if it's the melody itself that's so incongruously bright and bouncy, or just the way its always arranged and performed.
 
   Nov-24-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: Classic Carlsen: Maneuver to get a complicated middle/endgame position that may or may not be a draw in theory. Sit back, apply pressure, and wait for the mistake.
