   Feb-20-22 Capablanca vs Janowski, 1916
jemptymethod: The same essential position was reached in Taimanov-Fischer, Buenos Aires 1960, and in the former's book "I Was a Victim of Bobby Fischer" he shows the game is still a draw in the ending position where Janowski resigned, just not as easy of a draw as Fischer's ...Bf4!
   Feb-09-22 V Fedoseev vs Dubov, 2020
jemptymethod: Interesting Siesta-like treatment of the Paris Defense by Dubov, wonder if this line is on Carlsen's radar at all? 4.d4 seems more critical against which, also in 2021, Artemiev played 4...Nf6, after which his opponent erroneously played 5.Ng5?! allowing 5...d5 6.exd5 Nxd4 with
   Jan-30-22 Mamedyarov vs Naiditsch, 2007
jemptymethod: Black is doing fine in the "mainline" after 8.Qf3 in January 2022. In blitz I play actually play 8...Qc7?! because a lot of players automatically play 9.0-0? and get caught out by 9...Bg4, but of course things are then not so rosy for Black after 9.a4. So instead 8...h6 is ...
   Jan-16-22 T Ghitescu vs Fischer, 1970
jemptymethod: BTW Timman dismisses 20...Ba6 on the grounds of "the strong(?!) strategic exchange sacrifice": 21.b3 b5 22.cxb5 Bxb5 23.Nxb5 Bxd4 24.Nd3 and merely states that "the knight is invulnerable and he gets two pawns for the exchange" but instead of mere prose some actual analysis was
   Jan-05-22 R G Wade vs V Ciocaltea, 1968
jemptymethod: 19...Be5 maintains Black's edge
   Dec-03-21 J Penrose vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
jemptymethod: Isn't it kind of coincidental that when Penrose beat Tal in this game, played the Penrose-Tal variation ;)
   Jun-12-20 R Vincent vs R Ortega, 1959 (replies)
jemptymethod: I hereby christen 5...Be6 as the Omaha variation
   May-11-20 Carlsen vs G Fant, 2001
jemptymethod: Check Goran Fant's rating page at it indicates he was 65 when he played this game and that his rating slipped 200 points in the next 3 years.
   May-08-20 Carlsen vs C Daly, 2003
jemptymethod: After 26...Kh8 do you think Carlsen saw the mate in 18 instantly found by Stockfish 11 at depth 33? d1g1 e5f4 c1b1 f7f6 g4g7 c7g7 h6g7 h8g8 g7f8r g8f8 h1h8 f8f7 h8h7 f7f8 f5e6 f4g5 h7b7 a8e8 b7f7 f8g8 f7f6 g8h7 g1g5 e8e7 c3d5 e7g7 g5g7 h7g7 e6e7 a6a5 e7e8q a5a4 e8g6 g7h8 f6f8
   Jan-31-20 D Minic vs A Planinc, 1975
jemptymethod: The link from 01/29/09 to some annotations is broken but for convenience here it is saved by the "wayback machine":
