   Oct-10-22 U.S. Championship (2022) (replies)
jphamlore: Awonder Liang just played his immortal versus Aronian 5th round. I hope Awonder can savor this game for the rest of his life.
   Sep-23-22 Sinquefield Cup (2022) (replies)
jphamlore: <FSR: I still think that after 2.c4 Black has chances to resist. But I'm no Carlsen.> I think if Carlsen had played a couple more moves, he could have forced the draw as in: Eljanov vs So, 2013
   Jul-08-22 FIDE Candidates (2022) (replies)
jphamlore: An off-the-cuff remark in an interview of a July 20th date that is by no means an official announcement by FIDE is a sure-fire means to get Carlsen to pointedly refuse to indicate any decision before July 20th on principle as world champion, the exact opposite of the intention of ...
   Dec-14-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
jphamlore: <amadeus: Nice interview from ChessBase India> I sometimes think ChessBase India are the only ones doing actual chess journalism.
   Dec-05-21 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 (replies)
jphamlore: Magnus had to play 20. c4 to give Nepo a chance to go wrong. I wonder if he saw the trap well in advance and intuited that Nepo would miss it.
   Nov-27-21 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 (replies)
jphamlore: This is just sad to see another world championship match devolve into Magnus' opponent hoping Magnus beats himself overreaching with the white pieces.
   Oct-14-21 Silman vs Smyslov, 1976
jphamlore: One source of confusion may be in my copy of Smyslov's Best Games Volume II: 1958-1995, for game no. 273, the name of the White player is (incorrectly) given as "Speelman".
   Oct-12-21 Huebner vs Smyslov, 1968
jphamlore: Ken Neat's translation of Smyslov's annotations for this game can be found both in the books Smyslov's Best Games Volume II and Vasily Smyslov: Endgame Virtuoso. Smyslov's finish of this game illustrates an astonishing number of the principles of endgame strategy.
   Oct-11-21 Ljubojevic vs Petrosian, 1981 (replies)
jphamlore: <RookFile: I'm surprised Petrosian didn't use this more than he did.> You are right. It's incredible how insanely good Petrosian was at snuffing out any White chances for a dangerous imbalance in about 20 moves in the Petroff. Kramnik has written he thought Petrosian was ...
   Aug-23-21 Xiong vs Caruana, 2021 (replies)
jphamlore: It's seems to me Xiong played a reversed Gruenfeld and eventually got excellent results. I can't help but think of this game Carlsen vs Caruana, 2014 where Carlsen did the same for another (neo) Gruenfeld variant playing it in reverse as White. I just don't think this type of game
