   Jun-01-23 A Korobov vs A Volokitin, 2001 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Good puzzle this one. [DIAGRAM] First choice was the Queen check. Always look at the checks first. Nothing doing. Eventually hit upon Rf5. (after immediately rejecting it due to Rxd8+ Qxd8 and Rc8) Went back to Rf5 and only then spotted after the Rook check the mate with Bf2.
   Jun-01-23 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2023 (replies)
Sally Simpson: I was flicking through the game and stopped at 32. Ne5-d7 (hmmm....that is interesting. All the Knights attacking each other.) [DIAGRAM] Looks tricky. Knights defending each other are either good or bad. Mostly bad. If one is forced to move it cannot maintain the defence of ...

Sally Simpson: Hi Fred, I like to see top players having a minor tizzy after a loss. I've seen a lot worse and this was with no money or reputation at stake.

Sally Simpson: See Short vs Chess, 1978 (kibitz #1) For more information about this match.
   May-29-23 Botvinnik vs Kotov, 1946 (replies)
Sally Simpson: A famous game and position. Even I have used it in the past to show setting up a Knight Fork. The official title of this event was 'The Staunton Memorial' (no mention of this on the tournament page here, nor on it's own wiki page. have it correct.) It was held to ...

Sally Simpson: There is the book: 'The Chess Wizardry of Wotawa' by Lakdawala & Hansen The position on the cover is; [DIAGRAM] White to play and win. (nice) Clue: in the mainline you are saccing a piece, Black promotes and you mate with with one of ...
   May-27-23 FIDE Women's Grand Prix (2023) (replies)
Sally Simpson: Here is the final cross table - 'Not often the lowest rated player wins a tournament like this.' (Dinera Wagner is the new Mozart of chess.)
   May-26-23 Alexander Alekhine
Sally Simpson: Apparently Perfidious, or so I'm told, we are born with an exceptional skill in one field. I've spent a lifetime without success trying to find my innate gift. Maybe I don't have one that is what makes me unique...I think that is unfair. It's recap time. On this site we have

Sally Simpson: Hi Lambda, Lasker gives huge credit to Steinitz for shaping chess and pointing it in the correct direction. Lasker may have slipped Svidler's mind because Lasker left no school. There is no Lasker style other than dynamic defence or the art of playing the best practical move.
   May-23-23 Wojtaszek vs Carlsen, 2023 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Hi fabelhaft, That is just what I was thinking...When in Poland play the Polish. When they hold a tournament in London he will clean up. I guess it will take a while before every Carlsen loss regardless of the format will make a headline. Nothing wrong with the Latvian at my ...
