   Dec-03-21 E J H Schmidt vs Zukertort, 1865 (replies)
sudoplatov: Tartakover tried this opening as White 4 times in the 1924 New York tournament. He won vs Bogoljubov and Yates but only drew with Alekhine while losing to Capablanca. Instead of 4.e5, Tartakover played exd.
   Dec-02-21 Averbakh vs Podgaets, 1969
sudoplatov: Checking this with another online Stockfish gives 32...Nd7 as an error (32...Qh5 is seen as better.) Likewise 34.gxf4 is seen as another error (with 34.Rc3 as best.) 42...Kg7 is supposedly better than 42...Bg7, I suppose to bring the King closer to the action. Why isn't the final
   Dec-02-21 Capablanca vs Tartakower, 1924
sudoplatov: I looked a bit with an online Stockfish (not the local) and it likes 31.Rd2 also. Depending on the ply parity, either 31.Rd2 or 31.Kh3 is given as best.
   Nov-30-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
sudoplatov: There may be no name for a collection of grandmasters as yet. I shall endeavor to consult "An Exaltation of Larkes" by James Lipton and "The Books of St Albans" back through "Le Art de Venery," to figure out something useful. Suggestions: A Ply of Grandmasters. A Mating of ...
   Nov-25-21 Firouzja vs Mamedyarov, 2021 (replies)
sudoplatov: According to Stockfish, White has better chances with 40.Rc4 than with 40.b7. White gains a tempo for f3, not allowing ....e4. Black's Rook is on b6 rather b7 but that doesn't seem too important.
   Nov-16-21 Queen's Gambit Declined (D31)
sudoplatov: Marshall may not have invented it but he did play it against Lasker in his first game against Manny. Marshall won; he won a game in about 1940 but lost (or drew) everything in between.
   Nov-14-21 Psakhis vs Paunovic, 1986 (replies)
sudoplatov: 32.Qg5+ seems to win too.
   Nov-13-21 Minic vs T Rakic, 1969 (replies)
sudoplatov: For some reason, ...c3 looked good so, 30...Qxa7, 31.Nxa7 c3. Two "immune" passed Pawns on the 6th rank are generally about equal to a Rook. Two pairs should be a winning advantage. This was even easier than Monday's. It probably a matter of familiarity with the important ...
   Nov-12-21 Rubinstein vs Lasker, 1909 (replies)
sudoplatov: Some Rubinstein head-to-head data. Lasker +1 -2 =3 Alekhine +4 -2 =2 Capablanca +1 -1 =7 Nimzovich +7 -6 =9 Spielmann +15 -11 =8 Tarrasch +8 -0 =12 Marshall +11 -9 =11 Bogolubov +13 -14 =10 Janowski +5 -3 =0 Maroczy +5 -1 =9 Reti +9 -4 =9 Duras +10 -2 =2
   Oct-27-21 Matulovic vs Fischer, 1970
sudoplatov: The point of capturing at b2 in this variation is to exploit the absence of White's Queen Bishop from that area. Taking the Pawn does give up a lot of time. The position is very unbalanced.
