shalgo: “This is already shaping up as the deepest dive on record for the global economy for over 100 years,” said Kenneth S. Rogoff, a Harvard economist and co-author of “This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly,” a history of financial crises. “Everything ...

shalgo: Great game against Nepomniachtchi yesterday!
   Jan-18-19 Kibitzer's Café (replies)
shalgo: <THS> and <OCF>: thank you for the explanation, such as it is. I confess that I never would have made that connection.
   Jan-08-19 Tal vs I Sokolov, 1992
shalgo: Sokolov was to play Black against Tal in the second half of the tournament. While he was preparing, two hours before the game, the phone rang; it was Tal, who after apologising for phoning late said that he wasn’t feeling very well, and asked him, “Are you feeling ambitious?” ...
   Nov-15-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
shalgo: Carlsen has already faced 6.b4 in this position, way back in 2005: Stellwagen vs Carlsen, 2005
   Jun-06-18 Anand vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
shalgo: Black is just repeating to make the time control. He is much better and shouldn't take the draw.
   Jun-01-18 Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
shalgo: No Lasker Variation.
   Mar-07-18 R Bellin vs Andersson, 1981 (replies)
shalgo: Bellin's book "Queen's Pawn--Veresov System" includes this game in one of the notes (on page 79). Because it is not a primary game, it does not give the full move list. Instead, the reference starts with 8...c5. One thing is clear, however. As of move eight, black has played ...c6 ...
   Jan-03-18 Karpov vs Tal, 1977 (replies)
shalgo: To amplify on the mutual blunders at moves 42/43: the point is that after 42...a5 43.Rg4+ the d6-square is available to White's queen. (That is why 42...Qe6 was necessary.) After 43.Rg4+ Kf8 44.Qd6#. Therefore Black has to play 43...Kh8. Here 44.Qd6 still works, because Black can't ...
   Dec-03-17 Spassky vs Gligoric, 1978 (replies)
shalgo: According to Chess Results 1978-1980, Spassky won this tournament with 6.5/9, half a point ahead of Bellon Lopez, Miles, Hort, and Gligoric, who all finished on 6/9. Spassky of course remained very strong for several years after his losses to Fischer and Karpov, even if he probably ...
