polarx: Oh my God...
 
   Aug-11-12 Lutikov vs L Aronson, 1957 (replies)
 
polarx: Once: <It would have been pretty silly if we won the black queen but then allowed ourselves to be mated or give away a perp>. That would have made this one a hell of a puzzle. I hope CG.com offers something like that in the future.
 
   Jul-06-12 I Kurnosov vs Carlsen, 2012 (replies)
 
polarx: 62...? Black to play. Obviously.

polarx: Forgot about underpromotion again. Third time this week.

polarx: Hey <drnooo>, just a side note: your post above just reminded me of a documentary about Kubrick, the film maker. It seems Kirk Douglas once said to him something like "There are people who are sh.t and people who have talent. You are a talented sh.t". LOL.

   May-25-12 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
 
polarx: <Everett: I hope I refrain from getting roped into this too much, but I think it may be helpful to separate those who really enjoyed being WCs and those who didn't. I think it is pretty clear that Steinitz, Alekhine, Botvinnik, Karpov and Kasparov really cherished the title and ...
 
   May-19-12 Bronstein vs Korchnoi, 1962 (replies)
 
polarx: <Jimfromprovidence> I got it. Just because you said something was there. So nice to suddenly see it. Finding this OTB must be awesome.
 
   May-18-12 Tal vs Botvinnik, 1961 (replies)
 
polarx: <Runemaster: Botvinnik found openings that Tal didn't combat well, particularly the Caro-Kann as in this game.> Caro-Kann was played 6 times in the 1960 WC Match. 3 draws. Botwinnik won 1 game. Tal won 2 games. Caro-Kann was played 9 times in the 1961 WC Return Match. 5 ...
