   Mar-01-16 Benko vs Fischer, 1966 (replies)
mikrohaus: I'm not sure White's position is playable after 16...Qa5. Pal being Pal, he put up the good fight, but it's over IMHO.
   Mar-01-16 Yates vs Capablanca, 1925 (replies)
mikrohaus: I like the trend on CG to have the POD in a traditional way, meaning forced or semi-forced moves to get the solution. However, this puzzle is too easy, although making my requierments, and should be a Monday puzzle.
   Feb-19-16 A Stern vs J Minckwitz, 1871 (replies)
mikrohaus: 3...f5 might be the silliest defense to the Ruy (Spanish.) [It might have had legitimacy against pusillanimous (where the word "pussy" came from) players at one time, but it won't work today, where the average chess-playing child is looking to kill you and knows the bad move when ...
   Feb-19-16 Kramnik vs Short, 1995 (replies)
mikrohaus: <stst> I'm a lucky parent; none of my kids are hindered, except by their own self-limitations. So, I'm often reminded of my luck and see the problems other people face. Look up autism and notice things. We love ChrisOwen.
   Feb-12-16 B Lalic vs L Trent, 2008 (replies)
mikrohaus: It's a positional puzzle. I think White always wins a pawn w/ Qc2, but I'll play it out to the bitter end w/ Black. Unpleasantness is our lot in life if we play games like chess, bridge, poker, pool, backgammon, or any other game we might play against good contestants when we are
   Jan-21-16 Capablanca vs R B Estera, 1913 (replies)
mikrohaus: Many mentioned "Chess Fundamentals" by Capa. It's free on Gutenberg. [I like the e-pub version, because it has all of the diagrams; but, you have to d/l the e-pub app if you don't have it for your browser.] Capa had extensive commentary on this game, but also really good stuff on ...
   Jan-14-16 Capablanca vs E G Sergeant, 1929 (replies)
mikrohaus: I love Capa's logic on move 26. There is no answer. Some of the fun (or pain) of Chess is winning/losing these games. 9
   Jan-01-16 L Espig vs H Camilleri, 1969 (replies)
mikrohaus: You are all good players -- the kind of people I don't want to face if I need a full point to win a tournament. However, you are missing reality. White can wear Black down in reality here, but perhaps not in engines. I already stated my practical side (e.g. craziness that Black ...
   Dec-15-15 Spielmann vs J Mieses, 1910 (replies)
mikrohaus: <cuntatorg>: That's not defense from Mieses but counterattack (a slight but important difference.) This whole game is on a hair's edge -- to which Mieses' counterattack will win against everybody but chess legends on their best days. That's why FIDE gave them GM-status ...
   Dec-14-15 Bronstein vs Socrates, 1992 (replies)
mikrohaus: At many times I was wondering why the game wasn't ended. Apparently Socrates, which I never heard of, will only play to the bitter end. And the programmers don't play chess. Still, I think it's very fascinating to see the defensive resources of computers to be dead in the end, ...
