   Jun-25-22 Rapport vs Nepomniachtchi, 2022 (replies)
spingo: 19. f3. Rapport was in a situation where he HAD to beat Nepo. Rapport must win the Candidates'' ..... A strange position.
   Jun-25-22 FIDE Candidates (2022) (replies)
spingo: Nepo has, in fact, beaten Rapport (the unbeatable). As the 8 players talk in the canteen later, who will play Carlsen?
   Jun-25-22 Keene vs R G Wade, 1965 (replies)
spingo: Is this a good pun? It's too early to tell.
   Jun-24-22 Capablanca vs Tarrasch, 1914 (replies)
spingo: I was thinking of a much <MUCH> fruitier pun based on the name of Ruth Sheldon .
   Jun-22-22 Wittek vs J Schwarz, 1881 (replies)
spingo: If Black's FIRST move is 1...c5, does it make sense to classify this as "Caro-Kann"?
   Jun-20-22 Firouzja vs Nakamura, 2022 (replies)
spingo: The pgn from the official site includes the times for each move. [DIAGRAM] 42. bxc3 <[%emt 01:01:52] >. I am pretty sure that that means that Fridgy took a whole hour for his move. It is a simplified position but there was plenty to think about.
   Jun-19-22 Posch vs Dorrer, 1958 (replies)
spingo: "Posh" comes from a Romany word; Half=halfpenny, money.
   Jun-18-22 Maroczy vs Bogoljubov, 1924
spingo: It's easy to be impatient and play 27...Qe4+. [DIAGRAM] That forces the swap of queens immediately, and ends the attack. So after 27...Qe4+ 28. Qxe4 dxe4 there is the deadly threat of 29...e3(#). But at the end the rook on the f-file, ready to pounce. [DIAGRAM]
   Jun-16-22 Nunn vs I Raicevic, 1982 (replies)
spingo: Madria mia!
   Jun-15-22 Spielmann vs Capablanca, 1927
spingo: [DIAGRAM] 14. Qg4! sets some problems for Black. IF Black wants to defend the g-pawn he has to play ....Bf8. or ...g6 or ....Rg8. None of them don't look very good.
