   Nov-29-22 N McKelvie vs P Brandts, 1968
jerseybob: Let's balance the picture a bit, with a game that deserves to go in the game file. From the 3-10-69 NY Times: White: Paul Brandts Black:Neil McKelvie (event unknown) 1.d4,f5 2.g3,Nf6 3.Bg2,g6 4.Nd2,Bg7 5.e4,fxe4 6.Nxe4,Nxe4 7.Bxe4,Nc6 8.d5,Ne5 9.Nf3,Ng4 10.Ng5,Nf6 11.Bd3,c6 ...
   Nov-27-22 Andrew Soltis
jerseybob: Looking today through a stack of yellowed Al Horowitz columns from the NY Times, I found this gem, dated 11-26-1970: White: Soltis Black: (Karl?) Burger. 1.e4,Nf6 2.e5,Nd5 3.Nc3,Nxc3 4.bxc3,d6 5.f4,g6 6.Nf3,Bg7 7.d4,00 8.Be3,c5 9.Be2,Qa5 10.Bd2,Qa4 11.00,Nc6 12.d5,Na5 ...
   Nov-27-22 A Soltis vs J Jacobs, 1970
jerseybob: Jacobs(5-1/2) and Soltis(5-1, with 2 draws) finished 1-2 in the 1973 Pennsylvania Chp. over the Labor Day weekend. I was 28th, with 3 1/2-2 1/2, one of the hottest weekends I ever spent. A few days before I had just returned to the states after a 2 1/2-year Army stint in East ...
   Nov-27-22 Lenderman vs A Mikaelyan, 2022
jerseybob: <LRLeighton: 7...exd4 is a book move, and it has become increasingly popular as black KID players have grown to recognize the problems inherent in playing 7...Nc6 8 d5.> I know it's a book move, I was only giving my personal preference. And I was never big on 7..Nc6; my ...
   Nov-15-22 A Ostrovskiy vs Niemann, 2020 (replies)
jerseybob: <beatgiant: <jerseybob> But how true is it? On move 10, which is the first non-book move, the Stockfish here at least prefers <10...Nh5> instead of the game's 10...Qe7.> Interesting. Since I don't have SF I wouldn't know. But my human side prefers 10..Qe7.
   Nov-15-22 A Ostrovskiy vs Niemann, 2021
jerseybob: With 46.Raa1 offering to give back an exchange white seems to have hope, but 46..Ba2! clinches it for black.
   Nov-14-22 I Nyzhnyk vs Niemann, 2022 (replies)
jerseybob: <Zhivago22: I'm not sure 13 a4?! was the problem. I don't like 14 Ncb4 as e3 seems a better post for the knight. This seems to give White more strategical options then the game continuation.> Looking at the You tube video posted by the one and only <Fred>, Niemann ...
   Nov-11-22 St. Louis Spring Classic (Group B) (2017)
jerseybob: <morfishine: With 7 straight losses, Nazi goose-stepped herself right out of this tournament> Yeah, not a great moniker to be stuck with!
   Nov-11-22 Lenderman vs I Chirila, 2022 (replies)
jerseybob: Lenderman's first loss and I don't think it was necessary. White's 19.Qxc7 starts a sequence that ends with the loss of a pawn after 23..Bxe2, but what's wrong with simply 19.Qd2?
   Nov-09-22 G Oparin vs Niemann, 2022
jerseybob: <BxChess: <EvanTheTerrible:> 23...Nf4+ is an interesting try that temporarily sacrifices the knight for a small edge.> How's this for a thought:24..Nf4+ (not 23..Nf4+) 25.gxf4,gxf4 26.Ng3!?,fxg3 27.hxg3, aiming at Nf1/e3 with an equal-looking game. I don't think white ...
