   Mar-26-15 Dutch, Classical Variation (A96)
zenithooligan: Lennonfan, that's a good question. I don't keep close track of all the latest developments in opening theory, but I have never heard that the Dutch was found to be flawed. And yet it rarely comes off the shelf in top-level play. I have started playing it recently and really ...
   Mar-24-15 P Johansen vs B Goslawski, 2007
zenithooligan: What a disaster. If Johansen was at least following the rules of tournament chess and hitting his clock with the same hand that he moved his pieces, he could securely keep his crack pipe in the other hand.
   Feb-06-11 G Name vs D Di Berardino, 2008 (replies)
zenithooligan: Can anybody explain why 15 Bb5 doesn't just hang a piece?
   Jan-05-11 E Keogh vs J Killane, 2007 (replies)
zenithooligan: 15. Na4 seems pretty standard in this position. who knows why this game is over. maybe it wasn't recorded anymore.
   Aug-19-10 J Becerra Rivero vs Arencibia Rodriguez, 1995
zenithooligan: Maybe I am too easily impressed, but this seems like an incredibly sharp game.
   May-11-10 Topalov vs Anand, 2010 (replies)
zenithooligan: GM Short- I am for more games for sure. perhaps the old 24 is a bit unrealistic but at least 16 or 18. that way you really get to watch the development of the ideas over whether one's opening prep stands up, etc.etc..12 is just too short. i am afraid financial ...
   May-01-10 Anand vs Topalov, 2010 (replies)
zenithooligan: 28. Re8
   Apr-25-10 Anand vs Topalov, 2010 (replies)
zenithooligan: did anand mishandle preparation? does he have an idea that we aren't seeing. it's hard to think he would sacrifice a pawn to attain this. perhaps he draws this but i can't imagine he would have been playing for a draw.
   Nov-20-09 V Sikula vs Paschall, 2005 (replies)
zenithooligan: I have been studying this variation of the scandinavian. not sure how sound it is for looks pretty tenuous after 10. d5- white seems to have a huge spacial advantage. this is one of the few games i could find in which black wins out of this position.
   Nov-08-09 Macieja vs Ponomariov, 1997 (replies)
zenithooligan: Bb5! I think this is the first Sunday puzzle I have gotten all makes me feel like it was a bit of a weaker Sunday puzzle. by the way, i agree that 0-0-0 also wins for white. black is rather miserably developed and with a poorly placed queen.
