   May-16-10 Kamsky vs Nakamura, 2010 (replies)
Shinermatt: I am far from an expert, but it looks to me that after black wins the e6 pawn and the heavy pieces are inevitably traded off, there will be a symmetrical pawn structure on one side of the board with opposite colored bishops. It will be a pretty balanced position with neither side
   Apr-28-10 Anand vs Topalov, 2010 (replies)
Shinermatt: Anand needs to teach Topalov how to win with doubled pawns on the a file :)
   Nov-17-08 A Nickel vs The World, 2008 (replies)
Shinermatt: Personally I like Ne5, with Qb6 soon to follow, but it looks like Ne5 has a slim chance of being the move voted on. I'm voting Qb6, as I suppose we will have to play it eventually anyway. It just seems too early to commit to h4.
   Oct-18-08 Anand - Kramnik World Championship Match (2008) (replies)
Shinermatt: Has Kasparov had anything to say about the tournament so far?
   Aug-16-08 G Kuzmin vs D Gurevich, 1992 (replies)
Shinermatt: Uh...

Shinermatt: Too easy for Monday.

Shinermatt: This is about as easy as it gets.

Shinermatt: <whatthefat> Ah, very good. Thanks!

Shinermatt: <dovif> If 24.Qxg3, white avoids immediate mate, but ends up in a piece-down endgame. ie. 24...Ne2+ Kh1 25.Nxg3+ Kg1 26.Nxf1 gxh1, or 26...Ne2+ allows black to keep his extra piece.

Shinermatt: <Helloween: The notation is messed up on this one. 9.Ne2 would be illegal.> The notation is correct, because the g knight is the only knight that can move to e2 in this position. Since the other knight is pinned, no specification is needed in the notation. (And I do realize
