   May-24-23 FIDE Women's Grand Prix (2023) (replies)
SChesshevsky: Seems Dinara gets to the lead with a really interesting win v. Lagno in round 7.
   May-23-23 Superbet Rapid Poland (2023) (replies)
SChesshevsky: <beatgiant: Or was it simply because the sale made the most business sense?> It's probably the case. But the Play Magnus effort didn't seem to be around that long. Founders that usually find something they really believe in and find interesting usually don't sell out so ...
   May-22-23 Wojtaszek vs Carlsen, 2023 (replies)
SChesshevsky: Think Magnus did little, if any, prep for his 1...b5 surprise. Feels decided to lead provocatively but with just a principled follow. Think the natural "N's before B's" 7...Nc6 just gets in the way and causes trouble. Maybe something like 7...a6 8. 0-0 d6 9. Re1 Be7 works out ...
   May-20-23 E Djabbarov vs Short, 2008
SChesshevsky: <perfidious> That's a good find. Kind of interesting that both games work out pretty much the same way.
   May-20-23 Pia Cramling (replies)
SChesshevsky: <Chess hustler in Union Square...> Kind of feel sorry for the guy. Though really enjoy watching Cramling play. She's so very principled. Should be noted she has wins vs. Korchnoi, Geller and Smyslov. Though they were past their prime. But still. And also has wins versus ...
   May-19-23 Caruana vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2023
SChesshevsky: <PawnSac> Yes, not sure the benko transpo idea is best against 3. h4. But it is something I've seen. Think theory is still being worked out. I'm kind of skeptical on the benko idea and followed by ...Qg4 and...Nh5. Just seems odd to weaken queen side then position ...
   May-18-23 D Wagner vs Goryachkina, 2023 (replies)
SChesshevsky: <beatgiant> Great find! I did not remember the Korchnoi game. Hunted down the one that stuck in my mind. Spassky vs Petrosian, 1969 . How does poor Tigran get into such spots?
   May-17-23 Gelfand vs Kramnik, 2023
SChesshevsky: Kind of an amazing game. An ex WC and WC contender, both retired/semi retired from the mainstream, seem to get into a very sharp, computer approved, rare Catalan variation. Kramnik goes swashbuckler with ...Nbd7...b6. An uncommon but guess computer OK'd way to play against 8. ...
   May-17-23 Carlsen vs Anand, 2012
SChesshevsky: Is an impressive game. Especially against the then World Champ. Seems to show some typical Magnus themes. He's not averse to the Maroczy Bind. Likes to push e5. Usually for the king side bind. And loves to target the f7 square. Anand maybe gets a little sloppy with ...Rd8 and ...
   May-15-23 Caruana vs Giri, 2023
SChesshevsky: Think it's more somewhat forcing for white. There's always going to be ways off the path in a 26 move Italian line. The question is for black, how bad could it be taking that alternative route? With the thought that one misstep could be the finish in mind. Because for sure your
