Hi, I'm a "Murkan sizzan" residing in Costa Rica, home of the unforgettable GM???....well, we made it to the soccer World Cup a few years ago anyway...

   Jul-26-22 Tal vs Smyslov, 1977
 
ChessHigherCat: <Zugzwangovich> Yeah, I didn't see why not 13, Bc5+. then I saw it was Tal so I ran the fish and it gave its divine sanction. The only justification for 14. Be3 that I can think of would be accelerated development to get the rook out, but it doesn't seem worth it here ...

ChessHigherCat: I vaguely remember an IM telling me that 7. Bg5 is the only good move here. Is that still gospel?

ChessHigherCat: I suspect they were building a museum dedicated to Ding but it was repurposed to serve as the Xi Jinping COVID Hero Museum: https://edition.cnn.com/style/artic...

ChessHigherCat: <perfidious: Two of the seven deadly sins were ruthlessly punished in this game> Well lust doesn't count because the players always try to * each other.

ChessHigherCat: Gawl durnit, FishFace says white can draw in my line by playing 40. bxc5 instead of Kf1. I had the main ideas right but tooooooooo sloooooooooooooooooooowww getting the Q into play
 
   Jul-23-22 L Coelho vs A Rodriguez Vila, 2011
 
ChessHigherCat: <Granny O Doul> ditto, hilarious, I didn't get it the first time.
 
   Jul-23-22 B Grachev vs Y Zinchenko, 2010 (replies)
 
ChessHigherCat: : Hot damn, I got both lines right but Zinchenko is Mr "Never Say Die Even When It's Strongly Implied". He was a real pitbull under attack, I never could have outplayed him in a real game like Grachev did. That *confirms* the maxim 2 knights on the rim leads to a buzz cut.
