   Dec-02-20 A Rustemov vs F Vallejo Pons, 2003
plang: This variation with 3..Be7 where the development of the black king knight is delayed is sometimes referred to as the Alatortsev's variation. 7 g4 was introduced by Botvinnik in his 1963 title match with Petrosian. 9..h5 had been played in game 12 of the 1963 match (the first of three ...
   Nov-30-20 Kasparov vs Radjabov, 2003 (replies)
plang: Radjabov, not satisfied with the position he got in this game with 7..a6 and 8..b5, tried 7..cxd against Kramnik later in the tournament but was outplayed and lost. 9 a3 is now one of the main lines but at the time of this game was still relatively new. 10 Ne2 was a new move that has ...
   Nov-30-20 Jeremy Lim (replies)
plang: <perfidious: I have no more understanding of the whys and wherefores of who plays and who does not than <plang>: it is incomprehensible to me that Broncos should have been forced to play with their stable of QBs decimated, while Ravens-Steelers has twice been postponed. > ...
   Nov-27-20 Nimzowitsch vs Capablanca, 1927
plang: Nowadays, of course, 4 Bd3 is rarely played as it is considered ineffective. Already, 6 Nc3 was a new move. 14 c3?! was too passive; better was Alekhine's recommendation 14 Rac1..Nc6 15 Bf2!..h5 16 c4..dxc 17 Qxc4..0-0 18 Rfd1 with equality. After 16 g4? White was stregically lost; ...
   Nov-27-20 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
plang: The odds of the Supreme Court giving this case any serious attention are miniscule.
   Nov-24-20 Robert James Fischer (replies)
plang: How about Capablanca retiring before 1927?
   Nov-24-20 Aronin vs L Shamkovich, 1961 (replies)
plang: In Adams-Komarov 2003 French Team Ch. White tried 6 Qc4 going after the c-pawn and the game ended in a draw (game not included in this database).
   Nov-24-20 C Lutz vs Gelfand, 2003
plang: 11 NdXb5!? was introduced in Grischuk-Dvoirys Moscow 2002 (White won) and immediately achieved some popularity. In a rapids game Shirov had had success with 16 Qd4..Be2 17 Qxg7 but after the reply 17..Rf8 the position would have been unclear; 16 a3 seems stronger. In Goloshchapov's ...
   Nov-23-20 L Bruzon Batista vs Granda Zuniga, 2003
plang: 10 dxc is the main line; Bruzon here went with the relatively rare 10 Be3. 12..Qc7 had been played by Karpov against Rublevsky at Polanica Zdroj 1998 (White won); 12..cxd?! was new but clearly not an improvement. Black won the two bishops but fell way behind in development. Why not ...
   Nov-22-20 Shirov vs Tiviakov, 2003
plang: THIS GAME IS CLASSICAL - NOT RAPID. 9..Nd7 is a rarely played alternative to the main line 9..Bd7. 13 Kb1 was a new move; 13 h4 had been played previously. Tiviakov was critical of 15..Ne5?! as being too slow recommending instead 15..a5 16 h5..d4 17 hxg..axb 18 gxh+..Kh8 19 ...
