molinov: Dear chessgamers: I'm writing a piece on women in chess and was wondering how many female players participated in the open section of the olympiad. Polgar is an obvious example. Ketevan Arakhamia-Grant is a less conspicuous one. Any other cases you know of?
   Feb-07-17 Anderssen vs L Eichborn, 1852
molinov: Thanks, perfidious. It drove me nuts that i couldn't find the checkmate. At least it's not obvious... I thought these romantics always calculated all the way to mate!
   Jan-24-17 Shankland vs L Webb, 2017 (replies)
molinov: Not claiming to understand the position, but 24... b6 looks shaky. It makes both e6 and f6 weaker, no?
   Sep-23-15 Sergio Carlos Giardelli
molinov: Sergio Giardelli passed away on the 23rd of august, 2015. Eulogy (in spanish):
   Aug-02-13 Granda Zuniga vs Seirawan, 1993 (replies)
molinov: 40...Bd4? Alright, black is lost, but their best chance was to play 40..Nf7 and wait for the best continuation....Nf7-e5. Remember that we both played a thundering blitz up to move 49. End of commentary by Yasser Seirawan for "Tiempo de ajedrez", May 1993.
   Apr-09-13 Sutovsky vs Caruana, 2013 (replies)
molinov: <Eyal> Bd2 is a crafty resource, probably easy to miss over the board. I really don´t see what else could have deterred Caruana from taking the pawn. Maybe Nxc6 anyway and he thought it would be even stronger because the knight would be hanging if he took on c6? Looks ...
   May-11-11 Chekhov vs Y Zotkin, 1979 (replies)
molinov: <TuxedoKnight> That same game is featured in Claude Chabrol´s L´oeil du malin. I recommend the movie, and not just for its chess-related scenes.
   Apr-27-11 I Kurnosov vs E Semenova, 2011
molinov: KurNoSov
   Apr-12-11 Spassky vs Averkin, 1973 (replies)
molinov: <solskytz: (to Molinov) why is White completely lost after 30. Na4 Rc6 (!!) ?> After 31. Qf4 Bg5 is stonger than Qxa4 and completely decides the game in black´s favour. I don´t know if there is a word for a move that is not possible at a certain moment, but is a latent ...
   Jan-20-11 Carlsen vs L'Ami, 2011 (replies)
molinov: No computer will deem 35... Ra3 a mistake. In spite of this, I believe that 35...Rd6 would have secured the draw for black by forcing the exchange of rooks. What do you think? Was L´Ami going for something more here?
