I don't know how to play chess. Several times a week I accidently mispell "" and end up at this site. If you haven't guessed, I'm a huge enthusiast of doing creative things with cheese.

   Dec-31-11 J Jackova vs Timman, 2009
esticles: A very instructive video analysis of this game can be found at
   Nov-19-11 Nepomniachtchi vs Nakamura, 2011 (replies)
esticles: <Eric> Neither, Naka just prefers to play his games to the bitter end. It's more for the spectators then the opponent -- chess would be less fun to watch if the players always agreed to a draw as soon as they knew what was coming.
   Sep-17-11 Ponomariov vs Ivanchuk, 2011 (replies)
esticles: <PawnEnding> The TN was 15. Qd3. According to chessbase, the predecessor went 15.b1 c5 16.f3 xe4 17.c1 b6 18.d6 e6 19.e1 b4 20.e2 fd8 21.g3+ h8 22.a3 xa3 23.h4 ...
   Apr-30-11 S Narayanan vs H Gabuzyan, 2010
esticles: You're right, the game should be 1-0. The correct result is shown at I have submitted a correction slip to

   Apr-19-11 Russian Team Championship (2011) (replies)
esticles: Sularis this is the Russian <Team> Championships, not individual. Tomsk-400 is currently in the lead, although it has yet to face the 2 highest seeds by rating average. Full results are here
   Apr-08-11 Ding Liren vs C Li, 2011 (replies)
esticles: Li Chao is a common name in China. He is the second Li Chao to receive a FIDE rating, so his name is often written on pairings as "Li Chao 2" or "Li Chao b", as on his FIDE rating card
   Apr-03-11 European Championship (2011) (replies)
esticles: <Ezzy> thanks for the corrections. For some reason the webpage gave me the impression that they weren't doing the standard prizes by "group" -- I'm glad I was wrong!
   Mar-25-11 Macieja vs S Maze, 2011
esticles: "The absolute bottom of the barrel really has to be the draw between Macieja and Maze, in which the Frenchman alternated between +4 amd +20 for some 15 moves but was unable to end the game." Chessbase appears to be referring to moves 30-44, in

esticles: <White's only winning move is properly recorded as 1.Rcd2#, not 1.R2d2#> Neither actually, it's 1. Rcd2+ since the black king can go to b2 :P
