   Nov-30-13 Nakamura vs Topalov, 2013
pablo333: It's getting late here in the UK, and I am certain that I'm missing something ; but : why did white play 23 Rh-f1 (when 23 Bxc6 would appear to win material black has to recapture the ♗ishop, and in doing so will lose his ♙awn on g7)???
   Jun-13-13 V Gashimov vs Ivanchuk, 2011
pablo333: Black's error here is more elementary than complex: he attacks before his pieces are developed - it's that simple. 6... Qb6 & 8... Qxb2 (with the idea of 11... Bb4) cannot be right when it allows 15 Bb5+; after this black will find it hard to complete his development, plus his King
   Apr-15-13 Ivanchuk vs Kramnik, 2013 (replies)
pablo333: <Kasputin: Kramnik holds and he plays Anand - Kramnik loses (most likely) then Magunus plays for the world championship - amazing finish!> I could be "putting two and two together and making five", but did Kramnik deliberately handicap himself by playing the Pirc Defense ...
   Jan-18-13 J Gustafsson vs Kramnik, 2012 (replies)
pablo333: 13... a5 cannot possibly be sound (even when taking into account white's weakened queenside). In explaining the one sided nature of this game, it is simply the case that Kramnik is a far stronger player than Gustafsson. The King's Indian Defense is wholly unsound at an elite G.M. ...
   Jan-04-13 Carlsen vs Topalov, 2010 (replies)
pablo333: The pawn to b5 thrust by black (on move number six) is, I believe, a serious strategic error. After white has played 6 d3, it is safe for black to respond with 6... d6, because after the usual follow-up (7 Bxc6 bxc6 8 d4) white's initiative is nullified by the fact that he has ...
   Nov-01-12 M Dandridge vs B Kreiman, 1993 (replies)
pablo333: Of course - 26... Nxh6! Silly me!
   Oct-31-12 E E Book vs A Hiidenheimo, 1924 (replies)
pablo333: Brilliant play from Book: white appears to have a forced win after the seemingly logical 7... g6 from Hiidenheimo.
   Oct-31-12 J Kis vs E Csato, 1993
pablo333: I wonder if 7 Qxe5+ Qe7 8 Qxe7 Bxe7 9 Bb3 would offer white superior chances in the resultant end-game?
   Oct-31-12 Hort vs Kasparov, 1988 (replies)
pablo333: The Barry Attack is one of those lines of play that's not so easy to play against. I love the way that Kasparov is able to make the dismantling of white's position look deceptively simple.
   Oct-30-12 H Wang vs Topalov, 2012
pablo333: I don't think that Carlsen & co (Aronian/Mamedyarov/Grischuk etc.) are the great players of today; their time has still to come. When playing like he's done this year, I still regard Topalov as number one in the world (regardless of grade) for the sheer quality of his play. Anand,
