   Oct-16-10 Larsen vs Deep Thought, 1988 (replies)
 
ttr2121: You are correct, Landman. It was at a Swiss in Santa Monica, Thanksgiving weekend 88. Tal was also a guest of the tournament. I was there and remember well the buzz that went up when Larsen got smoked.
 
   Oct-16-10 Bent Larsen (replies)
 
ttr2121: Nice work MaxxLange! The Santa Monica event was a Thanksgiving Swiss, my wife and I flew down from Seattle. As mentioned, Tal was there too. I remember watching the opening, and then later, the buzz around the event when Larsen was toast. The game aside, Larsen was rather ...
 
   Oct-12-10 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
 
ttr2121: Shach motov, you are correct. Kramnik wasn't about to give Kasparov another chance. That he 'didn't have to' is moot. Great players take on great challenges. Ultra conservative dullards like 'big Vlad' just count their pennies.
 
   Jan-30-08 Topalov vs Kramnik, 2008 (replies)
 
ttr2121: Who should get the credit for this? Topalov for sitting down at the board and moving the pieces around? Cheparinov for figuring out all the moves? Or Daniliev sic) for making Topalov review the analysis before the game? Hmmmmmm....
 
   Jan-30-08 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
 
ttr2121: Whack888 is correct: there is no clear No. 1 these days. I disagree that this makes things more interesting, however. A top dog drives the action even if he/she wins most of the time. Their dominance sets a standard that is compelling to watch, and when they do lose its an event, ...
 
   Jan-29-08 Petrov Defense (C42) (replies)
 
ttr2121: The Petroff is pure anti-chess as played by Kramnik. It's a shame.
 
   Sep-29-07 World Championship Tournament (2007) (replies)
 
ttr2121: Feast: the title was not recognized by FIDE. Its lineage derived from the Short/Kasparov breakaway match.
 
   Sep-16-07 Anand vs Kramnik, 2007 (replies)
 
ttr2121: I should expect that 1. e4 will disappear from the highest echelons of the game. It seems that Kramnnik and Gelfand are showing that black has the draw in hand against it. And that's fabulous because now every game at the championship level can be either a Slav or a Queens Indian. ...
 
   Sep-15-07 Kramnik vs Morozevich, 2007 (replies)
 
ttr2121: See, Kramnik does have testicles. I don't know why he's always hiding them. Oh, yeah, safety.
 
   Jul-22-07 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
 
ttr2121: Thank you, Sanyas, for your jester's point of view. Why don't you annotate the upcoming games in Mexico? That should kepp us all in stitches for months!
