   Nov-17-19 Petrosian vs Fischer, 1970
spingo: [DIAGRAM] In this position Petrosian played the clever 49.Rxf7+. After the game he said to Fischer that he was going to play 49.Kg1. Fischer had not seen this move. Petrosian thought it might draw. 49. Kg1. [DIAGRAM] The most obvious move draws immediately: 49...Rxf2 50. Bh3! ...
   Nov-14-19 A Korobov vs Anand, 2019
spingo: Black played 19...Ra8. [DIAGRAM] 20.Ne5! An unpleasant move to face in blitz. When White's combination is over material is still level. [DIAGRAM] 24.d5. White has ♗♗ v ♘♘, and he keeps this advantage right up to move 64! The game from move 24 onwards ...
   Nov-14-19 W So vs A Giri, 2019
spingo: White got one of those long but fragile pawn chains. [DIAGRAM] Black could have played 26...b4 here. The black b+c pawns look like they would be quick and deadly.
   Nov-12-19 Jobava vs Short, 2017 (replies)
spingo: <Cheapo by the Dozen: Best Jabberwocky pun so far, in my opinion, because of its fit to a cool game!> Very tedious. Let us have the courage to abandon Jabberwocky week and move on.
   Nov-11-19 Viktor Korchnoi
spingo: <OrangeTulip: 4,400 games by Korchnoi in the database. Is this a record?> <saffuna: Yes, by far. Ivanchuk is second with 2,774.> That is the record at <this> database. Chessbase's Megabase also has Korchnoi at the top, then Anatoly Karpov, and then ....
   Nov-11-19 Phony Benoni chessforum
spingo: Many thanks for your answer <PB>.
   Nov-11-19 Victor Ivanovich Soultanbeieff
spingo: If he was around nowadays we would probably write his name as Sultanbeev, like in Dreev or Bareev.
   Nov-11-19 Karjakin vs A Korobov, 2019
spingo: White has just played 37. Qg2. [DIAGRAM] He now comes under a massive attack. 37...Qb6 38. Nxf5+ Kh7 39. Qh3 Rc2+. Yes, check, I didn't see it at first. [DIAGRAM] 40. d4 Ng4 41. Ne3 Qxd4 42. Rf7+! Kg6! <The best move. It protects the ♙h6, and stops a future ...
   Nov-11-19 V Artemiev vs Mamedyarov, 2019
spingo: White might have been a bit lucky here. [DIAGRAM] He played 63.Nxg5. Of course, if 63...Kxg5 then Rg7+ picks up the bishop on g2, or draws after ...Rg6, Rxg6+ =. But after 63.Nxg5 Black played 63...Be3+. A simple fork that picked up the knight. The position was drawn anyway.
   Nov-11-19 A Giri vs Le Quang Liem, 2019
spingo: [DIAGRAM] The black pawns fall faster than Jimmy Savile's knickers. The white queen goes down the staircase backwards. 36.Qxh7+ Ke6 37.Qxg6+ Kd5 38.Qxa6... [DIAGRAM]
