TommyC: I wrote a blog entry about you on the S&B Chess blog on Wednesday: http://streathambrixtonchess.blogsp... I hope you like it. Keep up the good work.

TommyC: http://streathambrixtonchess.blogsp... should cheer Nigel fans up!
   Nov-16-10 Petrosian vs T Carr, 1978 (replies)
TommyC: Black's exchange sac is curiously reminiscent of Petrosian's classic v Spassky in their 1966 World Championship,
   Aug-21-10 Bolbochan vs C H Maderna, 1953 (replies)
TommyC: Most positions are harder to play at the board than solve in a puzzle. This one's the other way round: at the board anyone would play f7 without a moment's thought and then probably work out the win as they went along ---- but working out the right method from the puzzle position is ...
   Aug-21-10 J Jackson vs P Littlewood, 2010
TommyC: "My play was virtually flawless," wrote the winner about this game in the ECForum, adding he was disappointed it wasn't considered for the Game of the Round award.
   Aug-13-10 P K Wells vs C Dorrington, 2010
TommyC: <Gilmoy: <TommyC: 17.Qxc8+> Rxc8 18.Rxc8+ Kd7! just drops a piece.> Not so. After 19.Bxf5+ and 20.Rxh8 white is a marginal amount of material ahead and again is slightly better. After 16.Nf5 exf5! 17.Bc6+?? Kf8 18.Rfe1 Be6 white can resign. I think you're probably that ...

TommyC: <HSOL><Qb3 being a blunder is even mentioned in works like BCO2 20 years ago.> When Felix was minus 6.
   Aug-11-10 S Gordon vs Adams, 2010 (replies)
TommyC: With 21...Qe7 Adams shows his class. I for one would never have contemplated allowing f6.
   Aug-11-10 Adams vs S Williams, 2010 (replies)
TommyC: It's amazing that Adams can make Williams look like a club player.
   Aug-11-10 B C Addison vs V Jones, 2010 (replies)
TommyC: Best game of the Championship imo. At least, it was a travesty it didn't win Game of the Day (the game that did being a routine outclassing of a weaker opponent by GM Peter Wells).
