   May-22-03 Benoni Defense (A60) (replies)
levigun: I've taken up an interest in the Benoni opening lately. I've heard that it's a great tactical opening. I've also started a Benoni thematic tournament on (first moves 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 c5). The tourney is open to anybody who has a gameknot rating between 1600 and 2000. If ...

levigun: I doubt that it's him. I joined two games with him last week on gameknot (he beat me in the first one). I lived in Russia for a year and a half, and I started making comments in Russian during our games. He never responded to anything I wrote. In English, I wrote him, and he ...

levigun: I heard that the age of an athlete's physical peak is at about 31. The figure was reached by charting the times of marathon runners, which got faster as the athletes approached 31 and peaked at 31 and got slower as the athletes aged beyond 31... But maybe that has to do mainly with ...
   Jan-30-03 Kasparov vs Deep Junior, 2003 (replies)
levigun: I watched this game on-line move-by-move (obviously I didn't have much to do this afternoon). I enjoyed watching the commentary of the experts, who all seemed to think that Kasparov had an easy win after 13 e4. Later, the experts began predicting a draw through the repetition of ...
   Nov-06-02 S R Mannion vs Vaisser, 2002 (replies)
levigun: Somebody help me out here. Why not 20. Rxe7 ??
   Oct-21-02 F Vallejo Pons vs Shirov, 2002 (replies)
levigun: Another interesting endgame, and a question for drukenknight - In calculating material advantages, you've frequently mentioned (if I remember right) that isolated pawns or doubled pawns are worth zero points. I understand the principle of what you're saying, but this is a game that ...
   Oct-19-02 S Volkov vs Nevostrujev, 2002 (replies)
levigun: Interesting endgame. Mate, of course, is possible with the knight and bishop, but it's a bit tricky to do. It looks like Nevostrujev knows what he's doing, though.
   Oct-19-02 V Kosyrev vs Y Malinin, 2002 (replies)
levigun: Interesting pawn structure for white after 21. e4.
   Oct-17-02 Kramnik vs Deep Fritz, 2002 (replies)
levigun: I put the final position in my chess computer and had the computer play both sides... It came up with a draw. If black has a win, it's hard to see.
   Oct-15-02 Fischer vs Stein, 1967 (replies)
levigun: Honza's analysis is correct. After 27...Ra3, White has no need to exchange queens with 28. e6?? The proper move is 28. Qg5
