   Jan-23-22 P Hulshof vs L'Ami, 2003
 
scutigera: Translate.google.com has evolved enough to cook up a surprisingly idiomatic version of the Dutch annotations; there are glitches, but they're pretty easy to spot for the most part. It helps that Dutch and English are similar enough that the original text can often help you figure ...
 
   Jan-10-22 B Assaubayeva vs Salim Al Amri Salim Mohammed, 2018
 
scutigera: And as of December she's Women's World Blitz Champ. Rock on, Bibi-who-isn't-Netanyahu!
 
   Jan-10-22 Yifan Hou vs Short, 2008
 
scutigera: And even now. Climate may change, politics may change, but Hou's Short shorts are still my fave.
 
   Jan-10-22 L Piasetski vs Semyon Lomasov, 2018
 
scutigera: I just noticed that chessgames.com has done that. Thanks, Noble Overlords!
 
   Dec-20-21 Staunton - Morphy Match (1858) (replies)
 
scutigera: It is disheartening to see a page whose discussion doesn't match its topic, but given what's happened to the pages of actual chessplayers like Ken Rogoff and Wesley So, to say nothing of I Hatem and all players whose names sound like a risqué word or phrase in English, I would ...
 
   Dec-20-21 F G Rowe vs W G Ward, 1876 (replies)
 
scutigera: "Burnin' F.G." might be more comprehensible, as I've heard the expression 'burn in effigy' several times, but never have heard of Fate Grand Order.
 
   Dec-15-21 Lasker vs Janowski, 1895 (replies)
 
scutigera: Interesting how White's 16th through 20th moves are all retreats, but that refocus the attack after Black's weakening moves, rather than abandoning it, a style I've heard called "typical Petrosian" by Tony Miles.
 
   Dec-15-21 Kotov vs N Povah, 1976 (replies)
 
scutigera: <FSR>: Thanks much for the link! Now I can be annoyingly informed instead of just annoying.
 
   Dec-14-21 I Sokolov vs Kasparov, 1999 (replies)
 
scutigera: Kasparov has indeed been unlucky with the Nimzo: +2=3-4, and his wins were vs Ambartsoumian (max Elo 2424) and Vladimirov (who blundered and got his queen trapped). The only real puzzle, though, is why he keeps playing an opening he doesn't prosper with or like at such high levels
 
   Dec-14-21 A S Sergeev vs V Sozin, 1924 (replies)
 
scutigera: <Saniyat24>: Yep, the man himself.
