   Feb-04-23 6th American Chess Congress (1889)
 
SymphonicKnight: That Mason-Gunsberg won the prize for Best Game of this gigantic tournament shows how far chess had come to value accurate positional play during the reign of Steinitz as World Champion while he was living in America. It is true that perhaps Showalter-Gossip may have won the
 
   Feb-04-23 J Mason vs Gunsberg, 1889
 
SymphonicKnight: That this game won the prize for Best Game of this gigantic tournament shows how far chess had come to value accurate positional play during the reign of Steinitz as World Champion while he was living in America. It is true that perhaps Showalter-Gossip may have won the ...
 
   Nov-18-22 Meltwater Champions Chess Tour Finals (2022) (replies)
 
SymphonicKnight: Through Day 4 of this tournament, is anyone else disheartened by the Niemann-Carlsen scandal, the War and lack of certain competitors, the disappearance of Ding from the circuit, the abdication of Magnus, and the lack of competition in this tournament for Magnus as all his ...
 
   Nov-18-22 Anderssen vs Steinitz, 1866
 
SymphonicKnight: This game is remarkably uncommented upon for such a relatively significant game in chess history, within a pre-official defacto world championship match with the score tied 4-4 and Anderssen actually taking the lead late in it. This is just a bad game for such brilliant ...
 
   Sep-30-22 Niemann vs M Cornette, 2020 (replies)
 
SymphonicKnight: Sebastian88: <One of those games that is 100% compatible with Stockfish.> Except it isn't. Chesscom's accuracy tool gives it a 97.1 and this game almost plays itself. How good is 97.1? Fischer played 3 games above this level in the 1972 World Championship match (games ...
 
   Aug-11-22 Chennai Olympiad (2022) (replies)
 
SymphonicKnight: It is clear that Olympiad Sonneborn-Berger (OSB) values are better than Board Points because of strength of schedule issues that come especially into play by the end of the tournament. Why should scoring 4/4 against a team averaging 1500 (and finishing with 3MP) be better ...
 
   Aug-11-22 Nodirbek Abdusattorov (replies)
 
SymphonicKnight: Not sure how there is no Search Drop-down yet for Abdusattorov, the World Rapid Champion 2021, Olympic Gold Medalist with Uzbekistan 2022 winning Silver for 1st Board performance? The same goes for the other top juniors (besides Esipenko and Firouzja who are already on the ...
 
   Aug-11-22 L Van Vliet vs Lasker, 1892 (replies)
 
SymphonicKnight: When Lasker was asked relatively early in his career, in late 1895, which was the "deepest" game of his career thus far, he pointed out this gem with van Vliet from 1892.
 
   Aug-03-22 Lasker vs Von Scheve, 1890
 
SymphonicKnight: Lasker finds a beautiful combination using deflection of an overloaded piece after a tough battle with von Scheve.
 
   Aug-02-22 N Miniati vs Lasker, 1890
 
SymphonicKnight: This is a difficult game to understand even with an engine, as Lasker has many complex decisions to take in the attack, and is fighting a piece down after a perplexing speculative sacrifice.
