   Dec-23-15 R Mamedov vs A R Saleh Salem, 2014 (replies)
nosh: What's best against Qe1 as a defense? My line is 42: ... Rxd5 43: Qe1 Rd2 44: Rf2 Qf4 45: Kg1 Qg3 46: Bg2 Nf3 47: Kf1 Nxe1. Not using a board or engine so could be flawed.
   Jul-12-08 Gelfand vs Lerner, 1987 (replies)
nosh: <johnlspouge> There's a much better line for 44 ... b3 that doesn't let Black queen the pawn. 44 Rg4 b3 45 Ra4 Ra8 46 Rf4! Now to prevent mate, Black has to move his king allowing a check with the pawn and eventual trade of rooks allowing White's pawn to queen with check.
   Jun-11-08 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
nosh: <frogbert: it still _is_ carlsen's expected score> Um, by your argument, if you flip a coin twice and come up heads, you would expect tails the next two times... What would be his expected score against the remaining opponents if the previous four games had not happened? Not ...
   Sep-27-07 World Championship Tournament (2007) (replies)
nosh: <znprdx> Weak players often move the queen too much. Intermediate players learn not to do this and often overlook the strong queen moves, perhaps out of fear for the queen's safety. Very strong players (computers!) seem to make more queen moves (but strong ones). The queen has ...
   Apr-26-05 P Troeger vs G Hodakowsky, 1957 (replies)
nosh: I also saw 42.Rxd5 exd5 43.b6. Just played it against Junior. Slow but easy win with the knight blockading the d pawn and protecting the b pawn until it is clear that all black's pawns will fall.
   Mar-05-05 Kasparov vs F Vallejo Pons, 2005 (replies)
nosh: There goes the g4 pawn...
   Jan-17-05 Kulaots vs J Geller, 2002 (replies)
nosh: <gambiter> No... 8 Nd5 Nxd5 exd5 Bxe3... White gains no material.
   Dec-21-04 Sasikiran vs P Thipsay, 2002 (replies)
nosh: I'm happy to say I spent no more than a few seconds looking for an attack on the king. It just looked too safe. I then looked for weakly defended pieces and overworked pieces. Clearly to win a knight the queen had to be deflected. Could it be done? In this case you can use the queen ...
   Dec-18-04 A R Andersen vs A Gronnestad, 2003 (replies)
nosh: <tpstar>, Ok, I guess... It seemed to me that some people thought white had to mate in order to stop a forced mate for black. Maybe I misinterpreted.
   Dec-17-04 W Doubleday vs Kudrin, 2004 (replies)
nosh: So here's the question... Does Kudrin see all the variations to the mate or does he just assume that the king in the middle hunted by the queen, bishop, and rook must go down? I saw up to 28 ... Qg5 and assumed the king would fall shortly (correctly getting the rest of the moves of the
