   Sep-29-21 Tigran V Petrosian (replies)
 
savagerules: The world never had the chance to see a Petrosian-Ulf Andersson match. An epic match that would have had 95% draws and all under 20 moves. I can picture Ulf sitting with both legs folded on the chair with a mug of coffee in his hand and Tigran fiddling with his hearing aid and ...
 
   Sep-25-21 Karpov - Korchnoi World Championship Match (1978) (replies)
 
savagerules: The film looks to be pretty good. It's called World Champion. The actor playing Karpov has the greasy long hair the way Karpov had it back then. It shows Karpov having a nose bleed and freaking out on people probably due to intense pressure near the end of the 1978 championship ...

savagerules: Hurts So Good, Jack & Diane, Small Town, Authority Song, Cherry Bomb, Ain't Even Done with the Night , ROCK in the USA, Lonely Ol' Night, Crumblin' Down, Pink Houses. I think Mellencamp had more than a couple hits. He was a constant presence in MTV videos during the early 1980s ...
 
   Sep-07-21 Hug vs Korchnoi, 1978 (replies)
 
savagerules: Never saw this game before but 24...Qe2 is odd and outstanding. Viktor was at his peak in the mid to late 1970s. I see the old comments and wonder what AJ is up to these days.
 
   Aug-28-21 Dominguez Perez vs Mamedyarov, 2021
 
savagerules: 28 Kh5?? loses after 28...Rxe5!! and Bishop will checkmate the king no matter what.
 
   Aug-20-21 Paul Morphy (replies)
 
savagerules: Paul later accused Sybrandt (his brother-in-law) of trying to abscond with the Morphy family fortune. But Sybrandt conveniently said Paul was nuts and to ignore him. Alfred Hitchcock tv series had plenty of these kind of stories where a cad marries into a wealthy family by ...
 
   Aug-05-21 Carlsen vs V Fedoseev, 2021 (replies)
 
savagerules: Beautiful win, even though it wasn't all that important in the context of things. But a bronze is better than a non- bronze. Actually both wins by Carlsen over Fedoseev in the consolation match were pretty impressive.
 
   Jul-30-21 World Cup (2021) (replies)
 
savagerules: Shankland had a chance to win his match against Karjakin by drawing with Black on two occasions against Karjakin. He lost with the French in game 2 and then played the Sicilian in game 4 in another must win for Karjakin and Shankland again lost and went into another overtime ...
 
   Jul-26-21 Robert James Fischer (replies)
 
savagerules: His tombstone in Iceland has a cross prominently featured at top, so that might mean he became some sort of christian at the end.
 
   Jul-13-21 Garry Kasparov (replies)
 
savagerules: <dehanne> Come on now- let's not get ridiculous, we're talking about Greatness. Garry might have got a few more points if they gave him pawn odds and an extra two minutes on the clock. He's not even 60 yet (58 yrs old), Korchnoi was winning tournaments in his 70's. Does ...
