wtpy: George W: Other than the involvement of Russia and the potential for things to "spin out of control," would you explain what similarities you see between the current crisis in Ukraine and WWI?

wtpy: Trolls are one thing-- Socks are another. At least Mort and Diceman stick to one persona on this site, at least as far as I know. Since I don't have anyone on ignore there are rare occasions when I might actually respond to something that a poster with multiple identities might say, ...

   Jan-16-21 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1980 (replies)
 
wtpy: Petrosian wins this game against most people, but Korchnoi was such a fighter.
 
   Jan-11-21 D Howell vs McShane, 2021 (replies)
 
wtpy: Maybe the best game of 2021.
 
   Jan-10-21 J Szmetan vs G Garcia Gonzalez, 1976 (replies)
 
wtpy: I got the game line through 21 ..f6 but did not see 22 Qh5; instead I would have played Rgh3, which is also winning, but not as decisively. Black shouldn't take the bishop on d5. I thought the best line was 19 ...Rad8 but Olga likes 19 ...h5 and only gives white a slight edge.
 
   Jan-09-21 Benjamin vs Shabalov, 2020 (replies)
 
wtpy: I don't understand why black resigned.
