plang:   <WannaBe: Maybe, just maybe, (T)raiders can win out. Or I am just kidding myself again. 🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️🏈😂🤣> Jacobs had quite a game - more than 300 yards rushing and receiving. Seattle had been playing decent defense this year.

plang: I'm confident that the position on the Right that the events on January 6th were greatly exaggerated contributed to their underwhelming results on election day.
   Nov-26-22 Fine vs J Rappaport, 1931
plang: Creative game with clever combination starting with 21 Rxe7+.
   Nov-25-22 S Sulskis vs Van Wely, 2004
plang: 11 Nxb5!? is a rarely played, risky sideline. 13..Bg7 was new; 13..Rc8 and 13..Ra5 had been played previously. As for 14 F6!? (as discussed above) Van Wely offered 14..Bxf6 15 Qf3..Be7 16 Nb4..Rc8 17 Nxc6..Qb6 18 Na7+..Qxb5 19 Nxb5..Bxf3 20 gxf..Rc2 with Black at least equal; 14 Qf3 ...
   Nov-23-22 P Nikolic vs Stefansson, 2003
plang: The pawn sacrifice 13..c5 seems necessary to activate his light-squared bisop. 17..Rb6 had been played in the rapids game Gelfand-Bacrot Cap D'Agde 2003; 17..Qxf4? was new but was a serious error. 18..Ra8 19 Nxe7! would have been immediately decisive. The line with 8 h4 has scored ...
   Nov-22-22 Z Gyimesi vs D Saiboulatov, 2004
plang: 12..Rb8 had been played in Nicolic-Stefansson Reykjavik 2003 (White won); 12..c5 was new. White already had a strong position but after 21..Bb7? he was close to winning; better was 21..Ng4 22 Nc4. 27..Bxe5 would have held out longer.
   Nov-21-22 Short vs I Sokolov, 2004
plang: The previously, rarely played sideline 5..Bd6 achieved some popularity in the early 2000s. 10 Bd3 had been played in Sermek-Mikhalchisin BLED 2002 (Black won); 10 Bb3 was new. 18 e6..fxe 19 Bxe6+..Kh8 20 Bg5..Nf6 21 Bxf6..gxf 22 Qf3..Bb7! 23 Qxb7..Rxe6 would have been slightly better ...
   Nov-19-22 Sutovsky vs Beliavsky, 2004
plang: 14..Bg4 was a new move; 14..c5, 14..Qc7 and 14..Ng4 had been played previously. 20..Qxd1? led to Black's knight being misplaced on b2; better would have been 20..Nxb2! 21 Qxd8+..Rxd8 22 Bf4..Rc5 23 Rab1..Nc4 with a small edge for Black. 23..Rxc3 24 Rg4..g6 25 Rb4..Rxc2 26 Rb7 would ...
   Nov-18-22 Botvinnik vs Smyslov, 1954
plang: 9..a5 which has achieved some popularity was introduced in this game. Botvinnik thought that 16 Na4 would have been strong. Botvinnik played this very solidly; hard to see Smyslov having winning chances in the final position.
   Nov-18-22 Morozevich vs Bologan, 2004 (replies)
plang: Wells after 4..Bb4: "...After the text-move we are left with the 'Winawer Variation" in which White has the extra move f3 and Black the extra move ..c6. ...For a start, the fact that the f-pawn blocks the move Qg4 prevents White from pursuing many of the most critical ideas from the
