   Feb-08-19 Browne vs Ree, 1976
PaulBl: According to the Dutch Wikipedia this is one of the best games by Hans Ree.
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
PaulBl: How about the following format, where the winner is World Champion Chess (never mind slow or fast). There are a certain amount of sets. A set consists of at least two slow games. If one of the two players wins such a set, he wins that set 3-0. If no-one wins a set after two slow ...
   Jun-05-18 Quinteros vs Seirawan, 1985 (replies)
PaulBl: According to Euwe, described in his book about the Nimzo Indian (nr. 4 out of a series of 12), the name Indian has nothing to do with India. It was proposed by Tartakower as a neutral name for all the 1. d4, Nf6 openings, and got general acceptance. Kind regards, Paul
   Mar-26-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
PaulBl: <Sokrates: In the old matches for the world championship there was the rule that the ruling champion kept his title in case of an equal score. I think that's a good rule and that it should be reintroduced. It makes good sense that the challenger should be able to beat the champ ...
   Oct-01-17 Timman vs Keres, 1971
PaulBl: Quite an nice game by the great Paul Keres, against the up and coming Jan Timman. The older fox proved to be the most tactical acute. Kind regards, Paul
   Nov-02-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (2016) (replies)
PaulBl: One country one vote for bodies like FIDE is extremely unfair, as mentioned before: a country with a few millions players, amongst them several top-50 players, should have more to say than a country with a few hundred amateurs. My idea: introduce a weight factor according to the ...
   Jul-23-16 Bilbao Masters (2016) (replies)
PaulBl: Did someone notice? Carlsen won more games than all his competitors combined. If I would organize a chess tournament, I would know who to invite. And who not... Kind regards, Paul
   Jul-16-16 Carlsen vs So, 2016 (replies)
PaulBl: I just don't get the urgency of 12. ..., a5. The position is closed, why not 12. ..., 0-0, followed by Bf7? After that, all black actions at the queens side will not be disturbed as in the game, all pieces are available for support. Am I missing something? Kind regards, Paul
   Oct-28-15 Lasker vs Tarrasch, 1918 (replies)
PaulBl: To me, Lasker plays the opening brilliantly, very effective, whereas Tarrasch doesn't seem to know what to do, like Bc8-f5-c8, which doesn't save the pawn. From here on Lasker converts to a win with iron consequence, great game for him. Kind regards, Paul
   Oct-27-15 Ree vs H Bouwmeester, 1967
PaulBl: Was there, loved the game and combination, how Black got a very bad position in an exciting opening by White. Kind regards, Paul
