plang: The Bears are not a good team (their defense is awful) but Justin Fields is a real trip - another TD run of more than 50 yards today.
   Dec-03-22 P H Nielsen vs Shirov, 2004
plang: 11..g5!? was introduced by Morozovich against Kasparov at Wijk aan Zee 2000. Kasparov was sceptical of the innovation and went on to outplay Morozovich but nevertheless 11..g5 has achieved popularity and is now a main line. 18 Rad1 was played in the draw Ponomariov-Gelfand 2003 ...
   Dec-02-22 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927
plang: In game 7 Alekhine had played 8..0-0 and Capablanca had gone on to win. here Alekhine varied with 8..dxc. 12 Be2 was new; 12 Rc1 had been played previously. Instead of 26 Ng4?! Alekhine recommended 26 Nc4..Bg7 27 e5..h5 28 Nd6..Rxd6 29 exd..Qxd6 30 Qc4 with advantage to White. ...

plang: I'm confident that the position on the Right that the events on January 6th were greatly exaggerated contributed to their underwhelming results on election day.
   Nov-26-22 Fine vs J Rappaport, 1931
plang: Creative game with clever combination starting with 21 Rxe7+.
   Nov-25-22 S Sulskis vs Van Wely, 2004
plang: 11 Nxb5!? is a rarely played, risky sideline. 13..Bg7 was new; 13..Rc8 and 13..Ra5 had been played previously. As for 14 F6!? (as discussed above) Van Wely offered 14..Bxf6 15 Qf3..Be7 16 Nb4..Rc8 17 Nxc6..Qb6 18 Na7+..Qxb5 19 Nxb5..Bxf3 20 gxf..Rc2 with Black at least equal; 14 Qf3 ...
   Nov-23-22 P Nikolic vs Stefansson, 2003
plang: The pawn sacrifice 13..c5 seems necessary to activate his light-squared bisop. 17..Rb6 had been played in the rapids game Gelfand-Bacrot Cap D'Agde 2003; 17..Qxf4? was new but was a serious error. 18..Ra8 19 Nxe7! would have been immediately decisive. The line with 8 h4 has scored ...
   Nov-22-22 Z Gyimesi vs D Saiboulatov, 2004
plang: 12..Rb8 had been played in Nicolic-Stefansson Reykjavik 2003 (White won); 12..c5 was new. White already had a strong position but after 21..Bb7? he was close to winning; better was 21..Ng4 22 Nc4. 27..Bxe5 would have held out longer.
   Nov-21-22 Short vs I Sokolov, 2004
plang: The previously, rarely played sideline 5..Bd6 achieved some popularity in the early 2000s. 10 Bd3 had been played in Sermek-Mikhalchisin BLED 2002 (Black won); 10 Bb3 was new. 18 e6..fxe 19 Bxe6+..Kh8 20 Bg5..Nf6 21 Bxf6..gxf 22 Qf3..Bb7! 23 Qxb7..Rxe6 would have been slightly better ...
   Nov-19-22 Sutovsky vs Beliavsky, 2004
plang: 14..Bg4 was a new move; 14..c5, 14..Qc7 and 14..Ng4 had been played previously. 20..Qxd1? led to Black's knight being misplaced on b2; better would have been 20..Nxb2! 21 Qxd8+..Rxd8 22 Bf4..Rc5 23 Rab1..Nc4 with a small edge for Black. 23..Rxc3 24 Rg4..g6 25 Rb4..Rxc2 26 Rb7 would ...
