   Jun-18-10 Queen's Gambit Declined Slav, Exchange Variation (D13) (replies)
Minty: According to the db, the percentage of black wins in the exchange variation isn't much different to the slav main line, so if it is drawish, it appears to be entirely at white's expense.
   Jun-17-10 Vienna (C25) (replies)
Minty: <FiveofSwords: after 1e4 e5 2 nc3 I would never play Nf6 because white can play f4 and if you play Nf6 too fast against the kings gambit then you can get in serious, serious trouble.> This isn't a king's gambit. 2... Nf6 3. f4 d5 is fine for black.
   Jun-15-10 Queen's Gambit Declined (D52) (replies)
Minty: Decent material on the Cambridge Springs seems to be hard to come by. I'm having difficulty with one line which is supposed to be good for black - good enough that nobody seems to have bothered analysing it in any detail - but I'm failing to see how black is doing well at all. 1. d4 ...
   May-01-10 Topalov vs Anand, 2010
Minty: <Ulhumbrus: On 33 Bxb5 Black loses if he enters a King and pawn ending eg 33...Rxb5 34 Rxb5 axb5 35 Rc7+ Rd7? 36 Rxd7+ Kxd7 37 Kd3 Kc6 38 Kc3 Kc5 39 Kb3 b4 40 a6 Kb6 41 Kxb4 Kxa6 42 Kc5 Ka5 43 Kd6 Kb4 44 Ke7 Kc3 45 Kf7 Kd3 46 Kxg7 Ke3 47 Kxf6 Kxf3 48 Kf5 Ke3 49 g5 hg 50 Kxg5 Kxe4 ...
   May-01-10 Fischer vs Fine, 1963 (replies)
Minty: <rhyla: OK...enough is enough...10. Bxf7+ Rxf7 11. Qc4 Nd5 12.exd5!..that's a great move keeping the f7 rook en prise...after 12..Nb6 white can play 13.d6 or simply 13.Qb3 or Qc3 with advantage> I don't think 12. exd5 is any good. 12... Bxg5 13. Bxg5 Nb6, and white doesn't ...
   Apr-18-10 Marshall vs Kupchik, 1913 (replies)
Minty: Ugh. I looked at the whole line up to 31. Rh8+ Kg6 32. gxh5+ Rxh5, and thought there was nothing there. 33. Rxh5 Kxh5 34. Rh8+ and black must lose the rook to avoid mate. Bah!
   Apr-17-10 S Collins vs G Flear, 2001 (replies)
Minty: <Peligroso Patzer: <Minty: *** I don't have the benefit of Fritz here, but 33. Qa7 Qf7 34. d5 Ra3 looks good for black.> In your line, 35. Qd4 seems to hold things together for White, but that's just a quick observation with no computer checking.> I think black is still ...
   Feb-19-10 Robson vs I Stavrianakis, 2009 (replies)
Minty: <Minty: <Eduardo Leon: <muralman>, 38.Qxg7+?? is a mistake: 38...Kxg7 39.Rg1+ Kh6 40.Rf2 Kh5 41.Rh2+ Bh4.> 41. Rf8 still wins, though not very quickly.> On the other hand, 40... Bg5 seems to be the correct defence.
   Feb-19-10 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2010 (replies)
Minty: <Ulhumbrus: 17...h6 disturbs the King side pawns without necessity. > Not without necessity. It's the only good move. 17... Bg7 allows 18. exd5 cxd5 19. Nxd5. 17... h6 leaves white in an awkward position because 18. Nh3 leaves the h4 pawn unprotected.
   Dec-31-09 E Nuenchert vs A Glaser, 2000 (replies)
Minty: <Phony Benoni>I always thought the major point of the O'Kelly Sicilian was that O'Kelly was scared of the Bb5 variation after Rossolimo thrashed him with it.
