   Nov-26-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
sofouuk: < It's easy to make armageddon perfectly fair at any overall time amount. Each player writes down how little time they will accept to have draw odds with black, and whoever wrote the smaller amount gets it. … I don't know why all armageddon chess isn't done like that.>bcz ...
   Jul-03-20 L Karlsson vs H Olafsson, 1979
sofouuk: <Curious is the observation that black does not need to play 25...exf4, he can continue 25...Bf7, 26...b5 etc.> thx for this confirmation as b5 was my immediate candidate - with Bf7 first (which I didn't consider, ho hum, logical tho it is) white is just grovelling never chase

   Feb-25-17 Bacrot vs I Lysyj, 2009 (replies)
sofouuk: <<al wazir: <RandomVisitor: 17.Ndxf7 hxg5 needs a refutation.> So does 17.Ndxf7 hxg5 18. Qxe6 hxg5.> I'm getting 17.Ndf7 hxg5 18.Qe6 Bd5 19.Bh7 Nh7 20.Qd5 Nf6 21.Nh6+ Kf8 [DIAGRAM] not dissimilar to the game but here there's no way to force queens off quickly - that ...
