   Feb-12-13 T Physick vs Blackburne, 1900 (replies)
somitra: Pun suggestion: "Laws of Physics" :-)
   Jan-17-13 Rotlewi vs Rubinstein, 1907 (replies)
somitra: <andrewjsacks>: Here are the two videos where Anand discusses this game and mentions that the present game (Rotlewi vs Rubenstein) has the same ideas with Bishops on b6, b7. He praises Rubenstein's version highly saying that in his version, there is also Rxc3, Rh3 etc. 1. ...
   Oct-05-12 H Rossetto vs Tal, 1958 (replies)
somitra: GOTD with title: "Rosetto stoned". :-)
   May-28-12 Anand - Gelfand World Championship Match (2012) (replies)
somitra: I hope Anand tries to press his time advantage today. They are 1:02 vs 0:33 and Gelfand is yet to reply to Anand's 20th move. The position does not seem to be so simple as the comp analysis of 0.09 suggests.
   Nov-28-11 R Kola vs Lasker, 1900 (replies)
somitra: <Penguincw> I played with Vishy Anand 2 weeks ago in a simul and he was playing with Black on all the boards.
   Nov-22-11 Tal Memorial (2011) (replies)
somitra: I met Anand last week and had a chance to talk to him for about an hour. I asked him if 3-4 months of preparation is good for the upcoming WC match (as one can understand from the interview of Kramnik above in the link given by <polarmis> as well, thats what appeats to be ...
   May-25-11 Gelfand vs Anand, 1993 (replies)
somitra: Is this the last classical win for Gelfand over Anand ? Or is CG missing some games ?
   May-08-11 World Championship Candidates (2011) (replies)
somitra: <it ends the prennial previledges of Topalov getting rematches and direct seeding into candidates matches. It is also good to see the end of Danailov's machinations and obnoxious verbal volleys on on other top chess players.> There should be a like button here. :)
   Mar-12-11 Anand vs Topalov, 2011 (replies)
somitra: On a day when Indian cricket team lost to South Africa despite a heroic effort by Sachin Tendulkar, it is heartening to see Anand's win. The win over Topalov feels even better when one recalls Danailov's antiques in the WC. :-)
   Nov-03-10 C Guimard vs Euwe, 1946 (replies)
somitra: Spent few minutes and got nowhere. Seeing the actual game ... Ah, it should have been black to win at 34... . <CG> please fix this quickly, let others enjoy the puzzle.
