plang: <also think there's a TCU factor. Last year it made the playoffs without looking particularly good, somehow got past Michigan who pretty much choked. And then got crushed 65-7 in the championship game.> That is the argument that Steven A Smith made and it is really annoying - ...
   Dec-03-23 London Chess Classic (2023) (replies)
plang: If someone is going to argue that Tigran L Petrosian is as good player as the WC Tigran Petrosian - well - good luck with that.
   Dec-01-23 Stahlberg vs Petrosian, 1953
plang: 11 Bg5 was a new move (this is a move that Stahlberg liked against the Kings Indian); the most popular continuations are 11 Nd3, 11 h3 and 11 b3. If it was White's intention to play b4 the normal procedure would be to play 13 b3 and only then a3 and b4. 34..Qxf3+ 35 Rg3..Qf7 36 ...
   Dec-01-23 Flohr vs P Romanovsky, 1935
plang: 4..Nc6 was a relatively new system having been first played in 1931. Already, 5..d5 was a new move. 10..b5?! looks positionally suspect. Smoothly played by Flohr but his opponent didn't seem to understand positional chess.

plang: In addition to My Darling Clementine another great western that Fonda made around that time was The Ox-Bow Incident. 12 Angry Men is certainly one of his best performances.
   Nov-30-23 Sinquefield Cup (2023) (replies)
plang: Maybe, but the 3 games still going still have a lot of play left in them.
   Nov-30-23 Macieja vs Anand, 2004
plang: Anand was critical of 6..g6?! recommending 6..dxe, 6..c5 and 6..Qd8 as alternatives. 9..b6 was played in Speelman-Brynall Copenhagen 1996 where White went on to win; 9..Nd7 was new though, after the game, Anand thought Brynell's move was better. After 11 h4 Anand thought that White ...
   Nov-29-23 Mamedyarov vs L E Johannessen, 2004
plang: The super-sharp line 11 Bb5 was introduced in Topalov-Gelfand 2002 Dortmund Candidates where White went on to win. 14 Ng3 had been played in the draw Sakaev-Bareev Rethymnon 2003; 14 Bg5 was new. 16..Bxc2?! 17 c4! helped fuel White's attack. Not 17..Qxc4 18 Qa3+..Ke8 19 Nxg7+..Kd7 20 ...
   Nov-29-23 Topalov vs Salov, 1998
plang: It is important to treat the knight well without spoiling it.
   Nov-29-23 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
plang: The argument of deniers used to be primarily economic - that addressing climate change would hurt the economy. That doesn't make any sense any more. The impact/threat of climate disasters is a real threat to the economy. Here in Florida the dramatic increase in homeowner insurance ...
