   Jul-27-15 Yusupov vs Carlsen, 2003 (replies)
Novirasputin: The international chess academy uploaded this 2 part video discussing this game to youtube: p1. p2. We hope to make it into a series with all our famous coaches.
   May-25-14 Ed. Lasker vs G A Thomas, 1912 (replies)
Novirasputin: Having memorized this game one of my prouder moments is doing this in a bullet game online. I castled on the last move. My opponent thought I was using a program
   May-12-14 Bronstein vs Gulko, 1968 (replies)
Novirasputin: GM Gulko recently gave a lecture at our Thursday Swiss competition in Teaneck. This game was the topic of discussion. We have notes from an earlier lecture posted here:
   Aug-25-13 Sergey Kudrin (replies)
Novirasputin: We just uploaded video of GM Kudrin commenting on this specific game on YouTube. This is a rare GM draw that got a standing ovation.
   Aug-25-13 Kudrin vs Tal, 1984
Novirasputin: We just uploaded video of GM Kudrin commenting on this specific game on YouTube. This is a rare GM draw that got a standing ovation.

Novirasputin: Magnus now has an Arabian Mate and Anastasia's Mate to his credit. I wonder how other GMs fair with mating patterns? Can Magnus run the cycle of each mating pattern there is? And is there a player who has done so?
   Apr-18-13 Bronstein vs I Anagnostou, 1954 (replies)
Novirasputin: I'm wondering if this is another Bronstein Zugzwang? After Ke8 which looks forced white can get an exchange or maybe wait until black runs out of pawn moves to get more.
   Apr-03-13 Mikhail Tal (replies)
Novirasputin: Here is the difference. Tal was unquestionably the best in his prime (and at other times too). The thing is he never let his health act as a crutch even though it was a logical reason for some of his subpar performance. That is admirable and showed he just loved the game. The ...
   Apr-03-13 A Novopashin vs Spassky, 1963 (replies)
Novirasputin: I would add that it wins because the subsequent threat after Bxd2 is Qf1 mate so Qñ2 does nothing
   Mar-29-13 World Championship Candidates (2013) (replies)
Novirasputin: A 1400 might not have played this move but they would have played an earlier blunder. Furthermore even if a weak player plays the right move it doesn't mean it's for the right reasons. If this was the conspiracy why not resign? Why attempt the Reti trap At move 57?
