rannewman: <Daisuki:No problem here. ;p I'm basically just saying that the utility of seriously considering a no-impact god is so low that it's not really worth the opportunity cost for me. It's not the same for impactful gods, but even for those I need some evidence for me to bother. ...
   Dec-28-12 Kotov vs Smyslov, 1940 (replies)
rannewman: This instantly made me think of ...Nxg3 in Gligoric vs Fischer, 1961 In both cases a piece capture will alow the capture of the loose knight in the center, while a diffrent capture will expose the king to mate in one.

rannewman: Ignore conrad93's comment. The computer commands you!
   Dec-26-12 Anatoly Karpov (replies)
rannewman: During the seville match, kasparov was unable to make any progress at all against karpov's caro-can, however in later games karpov normaly replayed 1...e5. Was there a game that made karpov shy away from the caro-can?

rannewman: I guess it's just harder in blitz, to win the endgame with a pawn less ;)
   Dec-24-12 Lutikov vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1959
rannewman: 28...f6 fails to 29.Bxf6+ BxB 30.eXB Kxe6 31.Qg5+ K any 32. Qh7+ Kf8 33.Qh6+ Kf7 34.Bg6+ and now Ke6 is forced, allowing BxR+. White is an exchange up and still have winning attack.
   Dec-24-12 J Lechtynsky vs A Mutina, 1968 (replies)
rannewman: Both wins easly, the bishop have no escape anyhow.
   Dec-24-12 A D Harley vs S Williams, 2001 (replies)
rannewman: 21...Re3!, such a nice move. If 22.Kg2 then 22...Rxf2+!
   Dec-24-12 Ding Liren (replies)
rannewman: Whychess published an interview with Ding Liren: feels kinda awkward, he is 20 years old but in this interview he gives the impression of a much younger child. Maybe it's just bad transaltion..
   Dec-24-12 D Fuller vs Horton, 1979 (replies)
rannewman: In your line, isn't black just a piece down after 12.Q:c8+?
