   Oct-20-22 A Chandra vs Niemann, 2016 (replies)
Landman: My impression is only that the game score is incomplete. It reminds me of Tal's famous 'last game', a blitz victory over the world champion: Tal vs Kasparov, 1992 Many more moves were played before Kasparov (in a winning position?) lost on time. But we only have the first 17.

Landman: Dec 2021 edition of the trivia question, as yet unanswered. A larger list than previous years. 15 GMs plus another 12-15(!) non-GMs, who are not listed. What do these players (and no others!) have in common, as of Dec 2021? Presented in alphabetical order. Viswanathan Anand Levon
   May-13-21 Aronian vs Caruana, 2017
Landman: I watched this game live at the St. Louis Chess Club in the no-engine GM discussion room. During moves 45-55 (~30-60 min total), GM opinions (V. Akobian and E. Hansen) went back and forth between Draw and Win for Black. I vaguely recalled that Bishop + wrong rook pawn is ...

Landman: Full video of this game at

Landman: <Diademas> Thanks! The two of them are the clear longevity kings these days. Honestly I don't see anyone except Carlsen and maybe Caruana staying in the top 5 / top 10 for 20+ years. It's getting crowded at the top. All-time top five durations in years (per Chessmetrics): 33.6
   Nov-27-17 Anand vs D Andreikin, 2014
Landman: Scores before round 12, with 3 rounds to go. A lot to be said for taking the sure draw. 7.0 Anand 6.0 Aronian 5.5 Karjakin 5.5 Mamedyarov 5.5 Svidler 5.0 Andreikin 5.0 Kramnik 4.5 Topalov
   Nov-25-17 FIDE Grand Prix Mallorca (2017) (replies)
Landman: Faulty earlier alluded to the final round USSR Champ 1989. Pairings/points of the games that mattered: Beliavsky 8.5 - 6.0 Tukmakov Dreev 6.5 - 8.5 Dolmatov Balashov 6.5 - 8.0 Vaganian  Oll 7.5 - 8.0 Gelfand Eingorn 8.0 - 5.5 Smirin To get clear first, Vaganian needed to ...
   Aug-02-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
Landman: For once (and perhaps only), I'm able to watch a supertournament in person. I'm rooting for Anand but really there's no one I wouldn't like to see win it.
   May-01-16 So vs Kasparov, 2016 (replies)
Landman: "Blitz Immortal" indeed. This is the 21st century! Why should all the other centuries get to name games but not us?
   Apr-26-16 US Chess Championship (2016) (replies)
Landman: Should be a great show no matter the result. I predict 1) Nakamura 2) Kasparov 3) So 4) Caruana
