Scuvy: Dear Santa: Thanks for the premium membership for 2021. I have enjoyed posting and learning from the CG community. Merry Christmas to the CG admins and all my fellow members! May we have peace on earth, good will to all and a great year of chess in 2022. Regards, Scuvy

Scuvy: Responding to ndg2's spot-on assessment, one possibility for a good drawing weapon would be the Marshall Attack in the Ruy Lopez. It may not be what Kramnik or Carlsen would use, but as Bogdan Lalic stated in his excellent book on the Marshall, Garry Kasparov made a point of not ...
 
   Nov-27-21 USA-ch / Zonal (1969)
 
Scuvy: One of the overlooked gems of US chess literature is the tournament book written by Morton Siegel. As a teenage scholastic player I obtained a copy from the USCF for a whopping $1 or $2 (can't recall the exact price). It has biographical sketches of the players, great photos and ...
 
   Nov-26-21 Bronstein vs Evans, 1955 (replies)
 
Scuvy: This game appears in Evans' New Ideas in Chess, p. 137.
 
   Nov-26-21 Nepomniachtchi vs Carlsen, 2021 (replies)
 
Scuvy: I realize the disappointment of not having a live feed through CG for this game. However, I am appreciative of the members who took time to input the moves for this game. What a contrast between the instant information of the Internet age and the times when printed game scores and ...
 
   Nov-21-21 Yanofsky vs Evans, 1947 (replies)
 
Scuvy: I believe this was the game Evans was talking about when he said to someone " I've got one into Botvinnik, " since Yanofsky had defeated the future world champion at Groningen the year before.
 
   Nov-21-21 Smyslov vs Evans, 1952 (replies)
 
Scuvy: Petrosianic, you are correct! See Evans ' New Ideas in Chess, p. 50, "Immobile tripled Pawns."
 
   Nov-13-21 F Olafsson vs Portisch, 2008
 
Scuvy: Mutual blindness in a rapid game, no doubt. Olafsson emulated Reti's opening setup for White in Reti-Yates NY 1924. Unfortunately for Olafsson, the result was not the same.
 
   Nov-13-21 Portisch vs F Olafsson, 1969
 
Scuvy: Time pressure blunder?
 
   Oct-09-21 J T Barendregt vs Portisch, 1963
 
Scuvy: Portisch, in his 2017 book on the Ruy Lopez, says he should have played 22...Rf8. The rest of the game shows careful play by White to neutralize all complications.
