Questions:

Why did Fischer really not defend the title?

Was Capablanca the most principled player ever?

Could a human GM beat a computer in a 30 min human / 2 min computer time control?

Why did Kasparov have such a tough time with Kramnik?

How can the Muzio Gambit be a forced draw?

SChesshevsky: Article should read salon.com 9/23/2021
 
   Oct-14-21 A Sharevich vs C Yip, 2021
 
SChesshevsky: Think the missing ingredient might be Sharevich appears a mainly d4 player. Somehow tricked into Modern/Pirc or even some sort of Accelerated Dragon where her feel for the position might not be that confident. She probably gets she's better in the opening but given Yip likely ...
 
   Oct-14-21 Sevian vs Caruana, 2021 (replies)
 
SChesshevsky: Probably a really smart opening choice by young Sevian. Not ambitious but likely a well worked out draw with little risk if the more common 8...d5. Though Kasparov won with black vs. Deep Blue. Think seen Aronian play the ...d6, ...h6, ...g5 idea before. Though maybe different ...
 
   Oct-13-21 Petrosian vs Estrin, 1968 (replies)
 
SChesshevsky: < Petrosianic: Not really. Tal's attacks were speculative. This one isn't. > Think I'm going with Petrosianic on this one. Doesn't feel super Tal-ish but is pure Petrosian. Always thought Petrosian's big plus was spotting weaknesses. In both his own and opponents ...
 
   Oct-13-21 Goryachkina vs Vitiugov, 2021
 
SChesshevsky: Think a good result for Goryachkina. Against a solid 2700 with plenty of experience. And against a rare open Catalan which I'm not sure she was well booked up on. The only time I remember ...Nbd7 was by Korchnoi trying to surprise Kasparov Catalan in their pre championship 1983
 
   Oct-05-21 Mamedyarov vs V Artemiev, 2021
 
SChesshevsky: <perfidious: ....I was known to play the more common 4. Nc3 e6 5. g4 ...> The Van D'weil line. Always thought very effective. In fact, a main reason that stopped me from playing the Caro. Found it hard to keep adequate control. Here, get the feeling where black is allowed
 
   Oct-04-21 Shirov vs Ivanchuk, 2007 (replies)
 
SChesshevsky: <Gaito> Thanks for the looks at key positions in some great games. Though it's probably best with some caution when deconstructing GM analysis. Especially with guys at the level of Ivanchuk and his peer buddies. In your line < Correct was 26. Ng5!...> Black clearly ...
 
   Oct-04-21 Petrosian vs V Zurakhov, 1956 (replies)
 
SChesshevsky: Petrosian very alert here. Seems 16. Rd6 gives white a strategically won game. An advanced rook protected by a pawn with passed pawn potential and the ability to back up the rook on the file and without opponent minor piece harassment ability is pretty much winning. Opponent ...
 
   Oct-03-21 Radjabov vs Carlsen, 2021
 
SChesshevsky: <Magnus has lately been trying opening experiments...> True. Does seem he does get into innovative moods. Especially in these fast online tourneys. Here there's extra incentive as he doesn't want to give any hints for the upcoming WC. But the Pirc/ Modern isn't that ...

SChesshevsky: <Bobby Darin> I thought the movie Cotton Club was pretty good. Good story and decent acting. But something not quite right. Also bombed at the box office. I place blame solely on Gere's ridiculous mustache. What's it got to do with Bobby Darin? Beyond the Sea, Darin hit
