   Jun-02-23 N Paikidze vs A Haast, 2004 (replies)
offramp: Nazi won.
   Jun-01-23 Caruana vs Giri, 2023
offramp: Fabiano Caruana had fouled up a pawn-ending in another game in this tournament. This one Caruana vs Mamedyarov, 2023 . [DIAGRAM] There is only one more for White, but instead Caruana played 77. Kf2?? The correct move was 77. e4=. Luckily, Giri gave away half a point: [DIAGRAM]
   Jun-01-23 Giri vs D Gukesh, 2023
offramp: A very stylish win by the 17-year old Dommaraju Gukesh . I am afraid that Giri is a Yesterday's Man. About 10 years ago Anish Giri bought out a book of his games. They were good games, but I wouldn't reread that on desert island for eternity. In this game Dommaraju Gukesh was ...
   Jun-01-23 Caruana vs Mamedyarov, 2023 (replies)
offramp: Oh yes! I have mangled the correct phrase. I think my brain is failing in my old age.
   Jun-01-23 Mamedyarov vs Nakamura, 2023
offramp: Blitz tournament. So vs Nakamura, 2023 Giri vs Nakamura, 2023 D Gukesh vs Nakamura, 2023 those previous Bogo-Indians were drawn. In the last round Shakhriyar Mamedyarov differed to Nakamura's opponents: he played 4. Bd2, not 4. Nbd2. The opening doesn't make any difference ...
   Jun-01-23 So vs D Gukesh, 2023
offramp: In this position [DIAGRAM] ... Wesley So played 27. Re7. That move was to prevent ...Rd1+. [DIAGRAM] Gukesh missed a colossal winning move. A move that would have turned the game upside-down... 27...Rd3!! There is no way out for Wesley.
   Jun-01-23 A Tari vs Mamedyarov, 2023
offramp: This was in Round 4. ATari tried the Scotch in this game and he build a BIG position. [DIAGRAM] He was fixated by the age-old square: f7. So he played 26. Nxf7, and won a pawn. Hw should have played the deadly 26. Nxc6! In any case, Mamedyerov won the ♖+♙ ending.
   Jun-01-23 So vs Carlsen, 2023
offramp: It was the French, and Carlsen came out of the blocks very quickly. SO must have been worried about Carlsen's aggressive opening. Carlsen played 8...g5 and 9...g4. That was followed by 19...0-0-0 and the black rooks were ready to attack on the g-file. On move 23 Carlsen had ...
   Jun-01-23 11th Norway Chess (2023) (replies)
offramp: The game between Dommaraju Gukesh and Alireza Firouzja was abandoned owing to bad light and rain. They will attempt to continue the game today.
   May-28-23 A Yu Qiu vs P Biedenkopf, 2023
offramp: Another Sicilian Ejog. Black snaffles a pawn, with an old trick. [DIAGRAM] 18...Bxa3. Later, Black decided to pick off the <OTHER> rook's pawn: [DIAGRAM] 31...Rxh3. But that is not as good; the game ends up pretty level. And then after all his ruses and traps and forks
