   Mar-17-11 Mamedyarov vs I Kurnosov, 2009 (replies)
Gawk: Rybka, as a strong chess engine, plays good moves. In order to beat a 2700-rated player, one has to make good moves. Therefore, by the transitive property, in order to beat a 2700-rated player, one must cheat. How do you explain that, Mr. 2600?
   Feb-27-11 Kasparov vs Miles, 1986 (replies)
Gawk: gives 22...Kh8 instead of ...Qe6. It doesn't make a huge difference in the outcome of the game, but it does refute your combination, Mateo. Does anyone know which score is correct?
   Feb-13-11 G Timoscenko vs Karpov, 1961
Gawk: Karpov was 10, and Timoshchenko was 12.
   Feb-03-11 N V Pedersen vs S Williams, 1998 (replies)
Gawk: This is a beautiful game of chess. How could it have gone so long uncommented on? Simon Williams is a very talented young grandmaster and probably the world's best Classical Dutch player. It's instructive how he sacrifices his way through the enemy barricades. I haven't checked this ...
   Feb-03-11 C Ward vs S Williams, 2004 (replies)
Gawk: What an interesting game. Near the start it looks like White's calling all of the shots, but he cannot breach black's defenses. In the end, White's kingside weaknesses do him in.
   Feb-02-11 Kavalek vs J Bednarski, 1972
Gawk: I'm just starting to play the Classical Dutch with 7...a5, and I'm wondering if 9...Nb5 is playable. Black loses pretty soundly this game, and 9...Nxc3 seems like a sound alternative.
   Feb-18-10 Miles vs K Wockenfuss, 1977 (replies)
Gawk: No offense to Mr. Wockenfuss, as I'm sure he could kick my ass any day, but I think 5...h6 is unwise. Black paid dearly for the weakening of g6; after 13 O-O-O it's clear who has the better game. I don't think Black has to worry too much about Bh6. He probably should prefer 5...O-O, ...

Gawk: Great attack. Great pun.
