   Sep-08-23 de Firmian vs E Thingstad, 2007 (replies)
Jamboree: If the attempt at a pun is referring to the last line of the film "The Maltese Falcon," then -- ooops -- the actual quote is "...the stuff that dreams are made of," not "...the things dreams are made of." Since the pun is based on the word "thing," but "thing" isn't even in the ...
   Jun-20-23 Kashdan vs M Leysens, 1932 (replies)
Jamboree: After 15. ... Ng3, white should have tried 16. hxg3!!? Bxc2 17. Rxc2, in which white has two Bs + one P vs a Q. Normally this would favor the queen, but in this position the two bishops can just post themselves in the center of the board and dominate the position, making it nearly ...
   Jun-11-23 M Notkin vs A Rychagov, 1996 (replies)
Jamboree: I think the losing move was 36. ...Qf4. Black should have sacced the Q with 36...Qxd1+! 37. Nxd1 c3!, and now the passed black c pawn presents a lot of problems for white. Too many lines to analyze, but in some of them, it ends up Q+2Ps vs R+N+N, a very lopsided but interesting ...
   Jun-09-23 Abdusattorov vs Nakamura, 2023
Jamboree: Nice open-board zugzwang in the final position, leading to Nakamura's resignation. After 37. Re5 Kf7 38. Rae1 black literally has no moves left. Every legal move available to black immediately loses material. Amazing! Nakamura also must have been shocked by 34. Nxc4!! Black can't ...
   Apr-08-23 Vachier-Lagrave vs Kramnik, 2023 (replies)
Jamboree: 5. Qg5#?? is a terrible blunder, on aesthetic grounds, missing the incredible, beautiful forced mate 5...Qh4+!! 6. Kxh4 Be7+ 7. Kh5 Nf6+ 8. Kh4 Ne4+ 9. Kh5 g6+ 10. Kh6 Bg5+ 11. Kg7 Rg8+!! 12. Kxg8 Nf6+ 13. Kg7 Nbd7 14. d4 Nh5+ 15. Kxh7 Ndf6+ 16. Kh8 Bf5! 17. Bxg5 O-O-O#!!! Black ...
   Mar-31-23 Women's Grand Prix (2023) (replies)
Jamboree: <LRLeighton + tamar> When Zhansaya Abdumalik withdrew, Bibisara Assaubayeva made a snide remark to her on social media along the lines of "maybe you should just stay home and cook borscht for your future husband" rather than play chess, which apparently is a big insult to any
   Mar-10-23 A Korobov vs S Kourkoulos-Arditis, 2023 (replies)
Jamboree: Hot Ko-Ko. An exciting Board 1 game that determined the first-place tournament leader. And both players' names start with "Ko"! Black sacs a piece for three pawns and what looks like an attack, but white quickly neutralizes it with expert defense. Black then cleverly wins back an ...
   Feb-19-23 Ganguly vs A Adly, 2012 (replies)
Jamboree: The pun, I presume, is a reference to the 1990 British film "Truly, Madly, Deeply" -- clever, but obscure.
   Dec-13-22 Julius Baer Challenger Championship (2022) (replies)
Jamboree: He's a child Pragdigy!
   Dec-05-22 L Asztalos vs Breyer, 1913 (replies)
Jamboree: Considering that black attacks on one wing of the board, a better name for this game would have been "Coming in on a Wing and a Breyer."
