Feb-20-10  Not: Beautiful chess geometry. Nepomniachtchi is the least recognized of the Carlsen/Karjakin/Nepomniachtchi trio, and I think he deserves much more attention. In all of his games, it's astounding how he knows exactly where he wants all of his pieces, especially his king.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 37...Qg8 is amazing, a maneuver finding not the best tactics, but the best plan. Combining an attack on the Nd3 with a King side pawn advance was a stroke of genius.

I admit it. No way I could picture the black queen at d3 after just 8 moves. I would like to see what would have happened if white guarded more stubbornly d3. Hmm. With knights at d3 and c1, but then, defending d4 would be...tough.

Mar-27-13  ProjectF: what a strange opening move order..but very logical too..
