   Oct-21-13 European Club Cup (2013) (replies)
mrriddler: Dr. Kamsky... wait, what? I thought he didn't finish medical school and got a law degree instead.
   Oct-13-13 Irina Krush (replies)
mrriddler: Yep, she's got the 3 norms apparently. They actually credited the team championship from before. Two norms in a year. Congrats to Irina. Long time in coming.
   Jan-11-11 Sam Shankland (replies)
mrriddler: Congrats, GM-elect Shankland. What's that, the fifth GM norm now? Long over due.
   Dec-15-10 London Chess Classic (2010) (replies)
mrriddler: You sure, frogbert? That's what I'm sure all chess players want to be flexible i.e. solid against tough opponents but a bit riskier against lesser mortals, but I imagine that's easier said than done. Still, the Carlsen "gambit" seems to work very well. His wins and losses are both
   Nov-23-10 R E Catig vs M Mills, 1974 (replies)
mrriddler: Fantastic! Amazing. I was so pleased that I found "some" of the attacking moves, 24...Re3+! in particular, but I'd never have found 18... Bc8!! in a million years.
   Oct-31-10 Robert James Fischer (replies)
mrriddler: Ugh, hey guys,I'm looking for a game with a brilliant tactical finish! I was certain it was a fischer game except I can't find it anywhere, so it's possible it was something else. I'll post my question here anyways in the hopes that some chess scholars know it. Reasonably sure of ...
   Sep-24-10 I Krush vs C Lujan, 2010
mrriddler: White's attack was slow so Black decided to help her out by sacking a couple of pawns and open up her own king. Lovely! Nc5 was a clear blunder, but does Black have a prayer's chance of holding this?
   Sep-24-10 T Fomina vs I Krush, 2010
mrriddler: Not sure what happened on the queen side. Seemed like Fomina sacked that pawn and then the exchange for nothing. Would a kingside storm have been more appropriate?
   Sep-06-10 The World vs N Pogonina, 2010 (replies)
mrriddler: Looks like the pin from Bg5 doesn't do much. At some point, Black can get a tempo by kicking it away unless we're going to trade it off, which probably isn't advised. That's my take against Bg5. A Catalan would be a nice learning opportunity for me since I play the QGD almost ...
   Aug-24-10 D Howell vs P H Nielsen, 2010 (replies)
mrriddler: lol, you think this is what masters mean when they talk about controlling the center with pawns?
