   Apr-02-19 A Zatonskih vs J Yu, 2019 (replies)
Smyslov57: Congratulations to my friend Jennifer Yu! She thoroughly dominated this tournament and showed the heart and courage of a true champion!
   Jul-14-16 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1978 (replies)
Smyslov57: Does anyone know of a book in which the Korchnoi variation 1e4 c6 2d4 d5 3Nc4 dxe4 4Nxe4 Nf6 5Nxf6 exf6 is analyzed as part of a repertoire?
   Apr-20-16 M Esserman vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
Smyslov57: Great analysis of the game by chess legend GM William Lombardy: And, reading his wonderful book on the Morra, I'm pretty sure that Esserman would have played it regardless of Anand's tournament situation. But as Rev. Lombardy says, he missed the mark ...

Smyslov57: If the great Korchnoi praises this biography, that's enough recommendation for me! I've ordered it today.
   Mar-12-16 G Dauletova vs S Al Khelaifi, 2010
Smyslov57: Well, I sure hope that the loser of this game was hanging on because her opponent was in time trouble. Otherwise, this is the most egregious example of poor sportsmanship I've seen in a game score between opponents at this level of master play.
   Feb-27-16 Stein vs Petrosian, 1961 (replies)
Smyslov57: What a game. I am currently spending vonsidrtBle time studying Petrosian's games. In my view, the most underrated of the great champions. Before playing over this game, I had already determined on my next player to study: Leonid Stein. This game confirms my choice. I have all ...

Smyslov57: This man was a giant among chessplayers. I wish I knew more about his later years: was he married? Any children? How did he die? I have learned to play 1...e5 in response to e4 in part due to his (and Smyslov's and Kere's and Spassky's influence).
   Jan-30-16 Korchnoi vs L Javakhishvili, 2008
Smyslov57: If I am correct, and I checked on Shredder AFYER I had reached this conclusion myself, Korchnoi's advice to play ...Re4+ and then Rb4 actually loses for Black. There are only two places in the game where Lela could have played this succession of moves: at moves 71 and 72. If white
   Jan-29-16 E Lazarev vs Stein, 1951 (replies)
Smyslov57: Interesting to see Stein going into a French! Was the Dutch also in his early repertoire? It seems that both he and Korchnoi (who refers to this in his EXCELLENT book of best games) were influenced by Botvinnik.
   Jan-20-16 Tigran V Petrosian (replies)
Smyslov57: I think Petrosian is the most underrated and misunderstood of all the chess greats. His games are wonderful for learning chess and improving.
