   Jul-22-07 Montreal International (2007) (replies)
DutchDunce: Yes, the poor device should rather be called by its anagram, iMoron. Would fit handily in the Apple family of handhelds.
   Apr-28-07 Moscow Championship (2007) (replies)
DutchDunce: I don't respond to requests to start a fight.
   Apr-27-07 Hort vs Portisch, 1973 (replies)
DutchDunce: This combination is featured in Cantrell's "Basics of Winning Chess" (I'm starting to sound like an ad for it). The mini-book touts combinations as "the soul of chess."
   Apr-27-07 Carlsen vs Portisch, 2007 (replies)
DutchDunce: Come to think of it, yes. For example, Hort vs Portisch, 1973
   Apr-27-07 Koneru vs A Muzychuk, 2006
DutchDunce: <PHX> Ah, very good. Pleased to hear that. Thanx for the clarif. And you are right, I have heard about how the captain needs to say yea/nay on draws during team tourneys. I'm embarrassed to say I had to play out the position for a while. So it reduces to the "reverse" K+P ...
   Apr-27-07 Nisipeanu vs M Roiz, 2007
DutchDunce: Observation: LDN played four e4 openings and two d4 openings as white in this tourney. He won all the e4 games and drew the d4's.
   Apr-25-07 Daniel Fridman (replies)
DutchDunce: Turns out this guy has a rather well-known fiancee: Anna Zatonskih
   Apr-25-07 Kramnik vs Ivanchuk, 2007 (replies)
DutchDunce: <It strikes me that Ivanchuk could be the next world champion.> Would be nice, but the consistency just isn't there. When Chucky is on his game, he is perhaps the most ingenious player alive. Kasparov could not beat him in their last 10 games. Sadly, that Chucky can ...
   Apr-18-07 Antoaneta Stefanova (replies)
DutchDunce: Yep, she won the silver on tiebreaks against the older Kosintseva. What I don't understand is why players insist on playing 1...Nf6 when Stefanova has White. Stefanova has one answer to that, the Tromp. And invariably she knows the opening better than her opponent and wins. This ...
   Apr-10-07 Timman vs Kasparov, 1985 (replies)
DutchDunce: How does your garden grow? Well, with all those knights galloping about, and horses known for producing natural fertilizer.... By the way, Garry playing the Ruy as Black is a rarity.
