I look at chess every day. The players of the past, Pillsbury, Morphy, and Rubinstein, have the strongest hold on my imagination.

   Jun-01-23 A Tari vs N Abdusattorov, 2023
tamar: Abdusattorov said afterwards he saw the winning sequence 27 Qb4+ Kg7 28 Qb2+ e5 29 g3 immediately after playing 26 …Qh4, and he can be seen in the coverage pointing to b4 and b2 after the game telling Tari

tamar: Only concern with Davis might be swelling after the elbow appeared to hit close to the eye. Huge phantom of the opera mask might be worth a try for shock effect, as Warriors were already wary of driving against him.
   Apr-29-23 Ding Liren vs Nepomniachtchi, 2023 (replies)
tamar: 14…Rd8 is safer than 14…b6 if you suspect your opponent has some tricks with Bf3, but engines are now saying almost dead equal
   Apr-26-23 Ding Liren vs Nepomniachtchi, 2023 (replies)
tamar: The echoes of the Tarrasch Chigorin 1893 match are strong. In that match, Tarrasch wrote “Everyone thought (me most of all) that the match was decided in my favor”. Had Nepo won his rating would have surpassed 2800, and he would have certified his standing as world #2. Now even if
   Apr-15-23 Nepomniachtchi vs Ding Liren, 2023 (replies)
tamar: I am becoming a fan of the Krush/Dubov coverage, particularly of their discussion of why 30…Qf6 failed, and why the ugly 30…Qd7 31 Qf4 Bd8 32 Qe4 d5 held. Dubov was skeptical that Bd8 was good for two reasons, one that it allowed 33 Qe8+ Qxe8 34 Rxe8+ Kh7 when the awkward self-pin
   Apr-10-23 Ding Liren vs Nepomniachtchi, 2023 (replies)
tamar: Ding only said he expected 12…Qxf6 and was going to play 13 e4. Thinking so long and not seeing 12…gxf6 as the main move makes me think he was already on his own, and out of prep.
   Apr-07-23 Nepomniachtchi - Ding World Championship Match (2023) (replies)
tamar: Tarrasch Chigorin 1893 turned out to be a match full of content, although not for the title. Hoping this one is similar in intensity
   Apr-02-23 Pillsbury vs R Buz, 1900 (replies)
tamar: Definitely a Buz Kill.
   Mar-31-23 P Shuvalova vs B Assaubayeva, 2023 (replies)
tamar: Bibisara proves she is dangerous on the attack, on the board as well as on Instagram. Shuvalova had a crushing 4 pawns attack, but rushed it, first with 16 f6, then again with 20 Ng5, which allowed Black to defend, and unleash an unstoppable counterattack.
   Mar-31-23 Women's Grand Prix (2023) (replies)
tamar: Two withdrew, Zhansaya Abdumalik over conditions, and Elisabeth Paehtz over unfair pairings due to Abdumalik’s withdrawal.
