plang: I noticed Paul Milsap and LaMarcus Aldridge are on the Nets - both one time stars near the end of their careers. Neither contributed last night. Spurs fans will miss Parry Mills who was 7 for 7 from 3 point range last night in his Nets debut (in a blowout loss).
   Oct-19-21 I Sokolov vs Van Wely, 2004
plang: 4..b4!? is a rarely played sideline of the Benko Gambit Declined. 11 Be2 had been played in Kuzmin-Vaisser Benasque 1997 (game not included in the database); 11 Be3 was new. An interesting, unclear line was 12 Qa8..Bg7 13 Bb6..Qd7 14 c5..0-0! 15 Bxa6..Qa4 16 Bb7..Qxa8 17 Bxa8..Bf5. ...
   Oct-18-21 Shirov vs Azmaiparashvili, 2003 (replies)
plang: This was the first time that 5 g4 was played; it has become quite popular. 9..Qc7!? and 10..b5?! encouraged Shirov to sacrifice a piece. One of the sample continuations following the sacrifice was 16 Qc7..Qxa4 17 17 Qxe5+..Be7 (..17..Nxe5? 18 Nc7+..Ke7 19 Bc5#) 18 Rxd7..Nxd7 19 ...
   Oct-17-21 Tal vs Petrosian, 1973 (replies)
plang: <kingscrusher: <anjumskhan> No Petrosian went wrong somewhere and had to rely on a mistake by Tal At move 23, White has c3 equalising:> That seems awfully harsh. This was an incredible tactically complicated fight - to expect perfection is not realistic.

plang: What is the obsession with China's culpability? Do you think they did it deliberately? Do you think they should be punished for it?
   Oct-15-21 Vescovi vs Dominguez Perez, 2003
plang: 16 Rc1 had been played by Oral in his win against Kasparov in Kasparov's 2001 Simul in Prague; 16 Rb1 was new. Dominguez, a Najdorf devotee, spent a long time to find 16..g5?! looking for activity but creating weaknesses; better was 16..Qh5 17 Qe1..Qc5 (17..Ne5? 18 g4 wins) 18 ...
   Oct-13-21 J Becerra Rivero vs Shabalov, 2003
plang: 8..h5!? is a sharp attempt to slow down White's kingside attack. 11 0-0 was new; White normally castles queenside. 14 Qd3!? set up 15 Ne6 which Black may have underestimated. Perhaps better would have been 15..Bxe6 16 dxe..f5 17 Bxc4..Qxc4 18 Bxa7..Qxd3 19 cxd..0-0 20 a4 with some ...
   Oct-12-21 I Ivanisevic vs Nisipeanu, 2003
plang: In Capablanca's win over Ragozin at Moscow 1935 Black had played 13..Nd7; 13..Ng6 was new. Somewhat similar to the Samisch Kings Indian White falls behind in development while building an imposing center risking a sacrificial attack by Black destroying the center and creating a ...
   Oct-09-21 Gipslis vs J Kostro, 1976
plang: 14..f6? was a real lemon; 15 e6 was an obvious response that most club players would make.
   Oct-08-21 Van Wely vs Sutovsky, 2003
plang: 12 Bxf7+ is referred to as the Seville variation; it achieved some popularity for awhile after being used four times in the 1987 Karpov-Kasparov match. This game followed the game Yusupov-Popovic Belgrade 1989 through 19 Ke1; Black played 19..Bxe5?!and White went on to win. In his ...
