the.raven: MVL is 6/6 with White so far.
   Sep-29-15 Eljanov vs Karjakin, 2015 (replies)
the.raven: would 41.Qc7 assure the draw here? was Eljanov trying to win the game and then misplayed the position, pushing too much for the win and underestimated the weak f2 pawn?

the.raven: couldn't white fight on with 26.Ne2?

the.raven: I am so glad that Natalia continues! I am in a platonic love with her since about two years ago when she chose the game I sent to her contest David vs. Golliath on her website as the best. She even "stalked" one of my facebook photos and put it there :) we exchanged few e-mails ...

the.raven: wow, two wins with Benko in two days.. Great Job Natalia!!! Go win this event :)
   Mar-16-15 E Rueger vs M Esserman, 2015
the.raven: really entertaining game full of action, ended with nice combinations from both players - White trying to stalemate with 48..Rxf2 49.Ke3 Re2+ 50.Rxe2 fxe2 draw; and then Esserman exchanging rook for two pawns on the 6th rank, unstoppable by a single rook.. Nice game.
   Mar-16-15 A H T dos Santos Fier vs M Esserman, 2015 (replies)
the.raven: what a Hilari(ous) blunder by IM Esserman..
   Jan-04-15 V Ciocaltea vs L Masic, 1971 (replies)
the.raven: has anybody ever read <chrisowen>'s kibitz yet? Anyway, great puzzle. I gave up as usual on Sunday after about 15 seconds when I saw nothing.
   Nov-10-14 J Polgar vs P Chilingirova, 1988 (replies)
the.raven: SLAYER!!
   Nov-09-14 Berg vs Tal, 1951 (replies)
the.raven: Black's already an exchange up, and it's impossible for White to protect the d-pawn and the b2-bishop. Note that the White queen also has to remain on the back rank.
