Olavi: A bit disappointing. He should have told which openings they are concentrating on.
 
   Oct-15-21 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
 
Olavi: <saffuna: <The article (full of annoying pop-ups) didn't say why Anand replaced Vidit.> The article says the team has a new corporate sponsor. Maybe the sponsor thought Anand would be a better captain, for whatever reason.> Anand's status in Indian chess circles is ...

Olavi: Apparently the tournament is played in the Bashkortostan State M.V. Nesterov Art Museum in the town of Ufa.
 
   Oct-12-21 V Durarbayli vs V S Gujrathi, 2021
 
Olavi: White has an impressive bishop on b1. I can recall Spielmann vs Tarrasch, 1912
 
   Oct-11-21 Beliavsky vs Kasparov, 1983
 
Olavi: <Gaito> Re Beliavsky you were discussing classical games. Short beat Kasparov twice, Hübner and Chandler once, Smyslov never.
 
   Oct-11-21 Nunn vs Bronstein, 1975 (replies)
 
Olavi: Agferna's variation seems correct.
 
   Oct-04-21 Shirov vs Ivanchuk, 2007 (replies)
 
Olavi: <according to Ivanchuk "Black would have had the initiative in this position". > and <Again the engine somehow disagrees with Ivanchuk's judgment. Stockfish 14 evaluates this position as equal or unclear. > are not contradictory.

Olavi: See this - whether this should make him eligible is dubious in my eyes. "Peace Corps" was of course an euphemism for military occupation. https://www.chesshistory.com/winter...
 
   Sep-25-21 Tal vs Speelman, 1987
 
Olavi: A delightful display of atavism, as Speelman himself put it.
 
   Sep-24-21 Petrov Defense (C42) (replies)
 
Olavi: <749770: And in terms of theory, which players are considered the greatest theorists of this opening?> Makarichev, by a country mile.
