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: Not sure what black was thinking with 22...Bxf4. Guessing it was either he felt he was so badly off positionally that the pawns gamble would somehow payoff if he could somehow survive. Or he was wildly optimistic. White will soon have five pieces within striking distance of the

SChesshevsky: <beatgiant> Thanks for the example. Guess it shows that computer statistical analysis can be helpful. Unfortunately also shows there are dedicated cheaters out there. Wonder if there's enough interest to have an own cheating forum? Don't think general cheating discussion ...

SChesshevsky: I doubt anything significant is going to come from FIDE. Seems the only way you can prove cheating is to catch some device, have a witness that sees some sort of signaling, or get a participant to confess. These computer analysis of best play %'s might be interesting but aren't
   Oct-01-22 Mishra vs Niemann, 2020 (replies)
SChesshevsky: Pretty sure Niemann had computer help for this game. But probably well before the first move. This game has the smell of computer prep all over it with the forcing ...g5...g4 push. Which I doubt is a computer choice. Wouldn't be surprised if Niemann had exactly 17...Nh2 ...

SChesshevsky: Think Barrie Mulligan's story is what chess is about. His really beautiful win v. Jacobsen suggests that he deserves more games in the CG database.

SChesshevsky: < Live spectators will not be allowed...> I wonder if that's due to Covid related precautions or security? It would be a shame if no spectators become a norm.
   Sep-14-22 V Gunina vs N Pogonina, 2022 (replies)
SChesshevsky: I cannot believe that Valentina did not at least draw this after 14...0-0. But with her it's either win or lose, she just does not like to draw.

SChesshevsky: <Cassandro> Interesting that you mention that. Believe there's a video of a quick repetition v. Yusupov from awhile ago on YouTube. Thought it rare that a young kid would go for it versus a noted GM. Actually, thought it was a good sign. Play principled and make the best ...
   Sep-13-22 Sinquefield Cup (2022) (replies)
SChesshevsky: <...And Mag's has tangled himself with his words.> What words? There's no evidence Magnus mentioned cheating or Hans in particular in his talk about withdrawal with tourney officials. If anything he might have mentioned that his game with Hans was suspicious. Probably ...
   Sep-13-22 N Pogonina vs L Garifullina, 2022
SChesshevsky: <ndg2...Where exactly started Pogonina to go wrong?> Think it was more Pogonina played very optimistically without the right plan. That's not losing. But add in a bit of carelessness for king safety and... 14. 0-0-0 isn't bad but it probably offers the possibility the K ...
