I live in the Portland, OR area and play chess badly. Make that very badly.

   Jan-01-20 Flohr vs I Koenig, 1929
 
pdxjjb: On my late-model Mac, Stockfish took 20 seconds to give up on Qxc5 and get the right answer. To me that says something about how surprising the correct answer is.
 
   Dec-04-19 London Chess Classic GCT Finals (2019) (replies)
 
pdxjjb: Carlsen was about 90 ELO better than MVL before these games. And the last I looked, he was a pretty tough competitor. So are all the naysayers here accusing Carlsen of not trying, or accusing MVL of some kind of misconduct because he succeeded in drawing twice despite a 90 ELO gap? I
 
   Oct-15-19 N Batsiashvili vs V Nebolsina, 2019
 
pdxjjb: 4 ... ♗c5 looks horrible because of 5 ♘xe5 ♘xe5 6 d4 with a pawn hook as happened in the game. But black can keep the game pretty even after the pawn hook with 6... ♗b4 7. dxe5 ♘xe4 8. ♕d4 ♘xc3 9. bxc3 ♗e7. There are 63 games in the ...
 
   Oct-12-19 Ding Liren vs K Alekseenko, 2019
 
pdxjjb: Black was doing sort of OK until 15 ... Ne5 which was a serious tactical mistake.
 
   Oct-12-19 Yu Yangyi vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2019
 
pdxjjb: Computer thinks YY's center pawn storm idea was weak from the get-go. 12 d5 weak, 15 e5 terrible. Computer was OK with MVL's queen exchange and doesn't see the doubled b-pawns as a problem. And course MVL's attack at the end was sweet.
 
   Oct-02-19 Radjabov vs Ding Liren, 2019 (replies)
 
pdxjjb: The computer thinks Ding Liren's king walk starting with Kg8 made things worse for him. Instead of Kg8, the computer liked bringing the bishop out to the middle of the board followed by Kg7. It's unclear whether this would have made any difference, of course.
 
   Sep-27-19 Radjabov vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2019 (replies)
 
pdxjjb: <OrangeTulip> This game followed Svidler-MVL, Grenke 2019 through the first 7 moves. Svidler continued 8. Be3 while Radjabov varied with 8. Bd3, which is unique in the database. So both players were long out of the "book" by move 19. The computer (SF10) doesn't think much of ...
 
   Sep-22-19 Kiril D Georgiev vs Dlugy, 1983 (replies)
 
pdxjjb: Daily puzzle for Sunday, September 22 2019. And, I'm afraid, not a good one. According to a modern engine, the game continuation 17. Ne5 is not even among white's 5 strongest moves. Black has a defense: 17... c4 18. Bxc4 Bxe5 19. e7 Bxh2+ 20. Kh1 (if 20 Kxh2 then 20 ... Qc7+ and ...
 
   Sep-16-19 C Coppola vs B Macias Murillo, 2009 (replies)
 
pdxjjb: White to play and lose.
 
   Jul-21-19 W So vs Karjakin, 2019 (replies)
 
pdxjjb: I don't understand the fuss. Black got a winning advantage early, played weakly, and then blundered horribly with 30 ... Rd6 and lost. Interesting, but fairly typical for a blitz game. What is the big fuss?
