   Oct-02-22 I Saren vs P Poutiainen, 1976 (replies)
Olavi: The ninth move will have been a6.
   Sep-30-22 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1974 (replies)
Olavi: <tonsillolith> Karpov sure is Ali, but is Korchnoi Foreman? I don't think so, he did not have that one killer punch.
   Sep-27-22 Taimanov vs Korchnoi, 2011 (replies)
Olavi: <FSR> And Taimanov & Korchnoi both lived in Leningrad. I'd bet they played before 1950.
   Sep-22-22 Stahlberg vs Keres, 1953
Olavi: The Peruvian is 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 c5 5.cxd5 Qb6, a dubious attempt by Canal, hence the name. Also Canal variation, even Venice variation: Tartakower vs E Canal, 1948 The real von Hennig-Schara would be 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5 4.cxd5 cxd4 5.Qxd4 Nc6 6.Qd1 exd5 7.Qxd5. So
   Sep-15-22 Tomashevsky vs V Artemiev, 2022
Olavi: Yes -it's a basic thing to know about these structures. Now the early draw in the Tomashevsky - Artemjov game, well, it was early. Mutual fear? External factors, who knows.
   Sep-15-22 Sax vs Karpov, 1989
Olavi: I don't think Sax did it on purpose, or at least it can not be deduced from the game score alone. He had lost to Karpov in the same variation just before Sax vs Karpov, 1989 , he deviated and perhaps he thought he had found an improvement on the lines that were played in other games, ...
   Sep-14-22 Carlsen vs Niemann, 2022 (replies)
Olavi: <...was thinking of help from someone in the audience...> "Live spectators will not be allowed in the tournament hall to watch the daily rounds..."
   Sep-11-22 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Olavi: <Dionysius1: <perfidious...Carnegie Mellon University professor, Uju Anya, sent out a contentious tweet...> Typical, though rather old fashioned, ivory tower stuff. Doubtless it seemed a good idea away from real life in the hallowed halls. The most she can hope for now, I ...
   Sep-10-22 Caruana vs Aronian, 2022
Olavi: Correction. 10.a5 would be good, if it was White to move.
   Sep-09-22 Sinquefield Cup (2022) (replies)
Olavi: It's not a crosstable, it is round by round.
