Oct-22-21 M Ebtissam vs N Martinez, 2006
WTHarvey: [DIAGRAM] 22. ... ? Here Black played 22...♘f2+ and if White had played 23.♖xf2 ♕xf2 24.h3 and there's no mate. If Black played 22...♖xf1+ 23.♖xf1 ♘f2+ 24.♔g1 ♘h3+ this is the familiar ...

Colonel Mortimer: <‘Let’s go Brandon’ is more than just a funny anti-Biden meme. It empowers Americans against the ‘fact-checkers’ and censors>
Oct-21-21 D Dengler vs P Carreras Mendiolea, 2006
WTHarvey: Black mates in 2 (deflection). [DIAGRAM] 34. ... ? 35.gxh4 ♕g4#

Oct-21-21 P Krueger vs Gruenfeld, 1923
Bishoprick: Don't understand why White lost. Seems like a perfectly even position. Did someone's flag fall?
Oct-21-21 Samuel Earnshaw
Jean Defuse: ... <Samuel Walter Earnshaw> ...
Oct-21-21 United States Championship (2021)
Check It Out: <suenteus p 147> Thanks!

Albertan: An interview with Jovanka is at:
Oct-21-21 Fishbein vs S Thomson, 2021
whiteshark: As (old)* Lasker said: <When you see a good move, look for a better one.> * he may have said that in younger times
Oct-21-21 Sultan Khan vs Colle, 1930
whiteshark: <master8ch: 17.Rxf7, 17.Nxf7, and 17.Bxf7+ all seem to me superior to what White actually played.> This seems to be true, essentially. [DIAGRAM] White to move 1) <-1.43 (42 ply) 17.Bxf7+> Kh8 18.Qc2 Ne5 19.Bxg6 Rxf1+ ...
Oct-21-21 Wesley So
iking: congrats Wesley ....
Oct-21-21 Beliavsky vs Kasparov, 1983
perfidious: That was likely some sort of clock simul.
Oct-21-21 Robert James Fischer
harrylime: All this talk about the semantics of a possible match between Bobby and Anatoly .. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Put it to bed pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze it's been discussed to DEATH Much much more intiguing is disussing their different ...
Oct-21-21 Tal vs Uhlmann, 1971
Gaito: On 19...Nxb4, there would have followed 20.Qd8+ Kc6 21.Qd6 mate. [DIAGRAM]
Oct-21-21 P Ihnatenko
Stonehenge: <Peter Ihnatenko> The Canberra Times, 14 Jan 1965 <P. Ihnatenko (now P. Johnson)> The Canberra Times, 27 Apr 1966 Must be Peter Johnson .
Oct-21-21 Blackburne vs S Earnshaw, 1874
MissScarlett: The game appeared in the <City of London Chess Magazine> stating it occurred during a <simultaneous sitting at the Sheffield Athenaeum Chess Club, on the 7th of October, 1874.> The source is very ikely Earnshaw himself, ...
Oct-21-21 Graf-Stevenson vs Eliskases, 1941
Mateo: 24...Bxh2+! was a nice sac. 24.Qf1? was bad. Something like 24.Qe2 holds.
Oct-21-21 S Citak vs T Abergel, 2005
NM JRousselle: This was an interesting game. If White had played 30 Qe4, he would have stopped Qb3 due to the threat of e6.
Oct-21-21 T Rodewis vs A Naumann, 2005
Atking: More active is 28...Rca4 which looks more and less equal.
Oct-21-21 Kamsky vs I Cheparinov, 2010
MissScarlett: <Hello, Mr. Cheps> Short vs I Cheparinov, 2008
Oct-21-21 T J Moriarty vs H Potter, 1972
Diademas: Not exactly wizardry at genius level, but still needs a pun.
Oct-21-21 S Chang vs G Curi, 2018
Autoreparaturwerkbau: Losing move was 18...Nf6? which self-removes crucial defender of f6-square. Move like 18...Ke7 was much better. [DIAGRAM] Adding to that black commited another error in already losing position with 20...cxb5? that sealed ...
Oct-21-21 Olland vs H E Atkins, 1899
keypusher: This is a favorite tournament for any Atkins fan, made better by <Phony Benoni>'s game kibitzes and his fine introduction. As PB notes, Olland had a good tournament himself, with nine wins, two draws and one loss going into this ...
Oct-21-21 Timman vs Petrosian, 1982
kingscrusher: <mjmorri> It seems maybe Korchnoi was a world championship candidate more times than Petrosian: "Korchnoi was a candidate for the World Championship on ten occasions (1962, 1968, 1971, ...
Oct-21-21 Maxime Vachier-Lagrave
Ironmanth: Happy birthday today, Maxime! Thanks and blessings for all you've given to chess. Keep knocking it out of the park, mon ami!
Oct-21-21 Bagirov vs A Beltran Tassis, 1961
Stonehenge: Thanks, it's fixed.
Oct-21-21 Eliskases vs M Czerniak, 1941
Mateo: Interesting ending. 41...Rc1? loses but 41...Kf7 should be a draw. 42.c7 Ra8 43.b4 Ke6 44.b5 Kd7, Black is just in time (45.b6 Kc6 or 45.Bf4 Ra4).
Oct-21-21 Kosten vs Chandler, 1991
Brenin: <fredthebear>: I strongly recommend Murray Chandler's book "How to Beat Your Dad at Chess". When I gave a copy to my grandchildren they were delighted. Their dad was less so, especially when I made him promise not to read it himself.
Oct-21-21 Adianto vs R E Espinosa Flores, 2000
awfulhangover: <agb2002: In the case of 22.Bb4 Be6 and Black still resists.> No, he does not. 23. Rc7 is +8
Oct-21-21 Tal vs Petrosian, 1975
Gaito: A beautiful finish for this very nice miniature by Tal. If there wasn't a White pawn on b3, the final position would be even more pleasantly aesthetic. Another very nice blitz game by Tal with the same opening can be seen in this link: Tal
Oct-21-21 G Pieroni vs T Abergel, 2006
sackman: "Beating the retreat " An impressive positional queen sacrifice. The way that white's queen is marched backwards d6 to f4 to f3 to e2 to e1 to b1 is very entertaining.
Oct-21-21 Tal vs Korchnoi, 1970
Gaito: An outstanding game by Tal. Another miniature won by Tal (against Petrosian) also with the Tarrasch variation of the French Defense can be seen in this link: Tal vs Petrosian, 1975 The Tarrasch variation seemed very powerful for White ...
Oct-21-21 S Kagan vs Petrosian, 1979
kingscrusher: Just to clarify a bit further, if 19.a3 Nxa3, White has e5 : Shimon Kagan - Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian 0-1 15.0, Rio de Janeiro Interzonal 1979 [DIAGRAM] Analysis by Stockfish 14: 1. +- (2.40): 20...dxe5 21.Nb3 b4 22.Bc5 bxc3 ...

optimal play: <<<CHESS IN SYDNEY.> The tourney for the State championship of New South Wales for 1905 has concluded. There were only six entrants. The title has been secured by Mr. S. Crakanthorp, by 9 games to 1. Mr. W. H. Jonas is ...
Oct-21-21 Biographer Bistro
Retireborn: <Tab> Many thanks, that's tremendously helpful. Had no idea you could find this stuff via Olimpbase!
Oct-21-21 F Vallejo Pons vs Anand, 2019
DouglasGomes: Positiion after 18.. c5, improvements on White's play can found indeed. Somehow it is in losing positions that people survive, when it is defensible they crumble. This one is somewhat faster: 19. g5 Ne8 20. h4 c4 21. Nf3 Nd7 22. f6 ...
Oct-21-21 I Vainerman vs Y Kruppa, 1986
Straclonoor: [DIAGRAM] this ending won for white. Very instructive way how to do it. It's not long way, accuracy needed. 58. Rc7 Rb1+ 59. Ka3 Ra1+ 60. Kb3 Ra6 61. h4 Rb6+ 62. Kc2 Ra6 63. h5 Ra2+ 64. Kb3 Ra5 65. h6 Rb5+ 66. Kc2 Ra5 67. h7 Ra2+ 68. ...
Oct-21-21 V Malaniuk vs Vyzmanavin, 1987
Straclonoor: Final move - <27....d1Q> glamorous and not so strong. Stockfish recommeds banale 27....Bxe3+! and 27....Qxa4 Analysis by Stockfish 310821: 1. -+ (-21.16): 27...Bxe3+ 28.Kh1 d4 29.h3 Bxg2+ 30.Kxg2 Nf4+ 31.Qxf4 Bxf4 32.Rxd4 Qc6+ ...
Oct-21-21 Jeremy Lim
WannaBe: Well, yeah!? You got Kershaw (DL), Price (?), Bauer (??) and have up-comers like Walker B. Julio U. as your 5 starter rotation, and then mid-season you get Max S. as insurance. How the he** can you not win? Then about 2/3 way through the ...
Oct-21-21 I Rotov vs A Kveinys, 2017
Straclonoor: Nice game! White missed clear win at least twice. [DIAGRAM] <38.Qxg6> strong move, but 38.Nf6+!! goes to mate in seven Analysis by Stockfish 310821: 1. +- (#7): 38.Nf6+ Kf7 39.Bxg6+ Ke7 40.Bxf8+ Kd8 41.Ne8+ Kd7 42.Qe7+ Kc6 ...
Oct-21-21 S Volkov vs A Stukopin, 2012
DiscoJew: Crazy Benoni. Four exchange sacs!! Love it.
Oct-21-21 Fischer vs Greer, 1964
fredthebear: Aside from Alekhine's Defense, there can't be too many games when BF opened with four straight pawn moves, and 5-of-6.
Oct-21-21 V Eingorn vs Psakhis, 1986
fredthebear: Well, I do have "a worn out tape of Chris LeDoux": No, I am merely a product of my environment, my poor but blessed upbringing (paddling improved my decision-making tremendously), my Lord & ...
Oct-21-21 Korchnoi vs L Guldin, 1955
Phony Benoni: <OCF> Don't know if I would agree with that one. Seems to me both sides fought bravely. "Mustered Forces" would be yellow.
