   Feb-06-17 Hastings (1895) (replies)
solskytz: One should mention that Lasker was ill with Typhus at the time of the tournament, and almost died. He still dragged himself to play - and it was incredible that he could finish in the top three, a healthy distance from the pack, in his condition - he could still play world-class ...
   Sep-25-16 Carlsen vs M Dimitriadis, 2016 (replies)
solskytz: Right - because you would certainly put up a better performance against Magnus.
   May-03-16 Reti vs Capablanca, 1928 (replies)
solskytz: What a disaster! That pawn sacrifice in the opening (on e4) really didn't go so well for Reti... The machine (Capablanca) just never lets Reti recover that pawn in peace. Things climax when he (Reti) feels obliged to capture that pawn (on d4) with his queen - after ...a6 was ...
   Apr-23-16 Roesch vs W Schlage, 1910 (replies)
solskytz: This game was previously played in the hall of the mountain king
   Mar-25-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
solskytz: So he's incapable of positive feelings and appreciation? Nah... he's not that one-dimensional. I give him a bit more credit (to Kasparov).
   Jul-09-15 Jonny vs Komodo, 2015 (replies)
solskytz: The point was not so much the loss of the a-pawn, as the penetration of the king into the whole black baseline.
   Jul-05-15 So vs Kramnik, 2015 (replies)
solskytz: <OhioChessFan> Thanks for explaining!! Now I get it.
   Jul-05-15 Dortmund Sparkassen (2015) (replies)
solskytz: <Gphamlore> there is still Botvinnik to contend with (the endgame expert regaining WC title despite advancing age)
   Jul-03-15 So vs Nepomniachtchi, 2015 (replies)
solskytz: +1 Chemmac :-) although I think my explanation is nicer :-) !!
   Jul-03-15 Kramnik vs Caruana, 2015 (replies)
solskytz: After 17...Qg4 this looks like a -2.87 position as black has the material AND the compensation. Totally hopeless. That said, white did manage to generate some chances later on. I didn't understand the idea of 35. Qc3 though, getting the Q to the K-side. I thought that a plan of 35.
