I look at chess every day. The players of the past, Pillsbury, Morphy, and Rubinstein, have the strongest hold on my imagination.

   Sep-17-21 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2021 (replies)
tamar: Playing 30...Qd8 would not be fun, but it preserves the b6 pawn, and White has no other play, and soon succumbs to Kside pressure. Karjakin missed the chance to create a sensation by beating Carlsen twice.
   Feb-02-21 Firouzja vs Wojtaszek, 2021
tamar: Firoujza either missed the win with 52 d5 exd5 53 exd5 or was worried that 53 ...Qd6 might be tough to crack , because 53...Bxd5 54 Bxd5 Rd5 fails to 55 Bxg7+ Kxg7 56 Qg4+ winning a rook. After 53...Qd6 there is no decisive sacrifice, but SF gives white +2 with an improved version of ...

tamar: Inflictin some Lastin pain
   Dec-18-20 J H Donner vs A Planinc, 1973 (replies)
tamar: I remember being fascinated with this 14...Rb4 conception back in the nineties. Planinc and others were the last to find these ideas purely on their own, without benefit of engine checks. Checking with today's engine, 18 Ne4 is strong, but does not refute the concept. 1) =0.00 (38 ...
   Oct-26-20 Janowski vs Rubinstein, 1908 (replies)
tamar: Rubinstein has the idea of e5, but plays it on move 32 when White's initiative on the K side is too great. 27...e5 is sharp, but seems to work. 28 dxe5 is no good after 28...Rxd1+ 29 Bxd1 Qd8 when White is helpless against Qd1 so that leaves 28 fxe5 f4 29 Bc1 h6 30 Kh2 Bg5 31 d5 f3 ...
   Jun-02-20 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2020
tamar: Yes, I was also puzzled at the high evals after the missed 37 Bf7 Qxb2 38 Qd1 Rf8 39 Nxc6 Nd3 40 Rc2 Qa3 41 Be6 Nxa4 42 Bf5 The knight on d3 is attacked twice, but why does SF recommend the suicidal 42...Nxf2 going down a piece with no attack? It was only then I realized that ...

tamar: Law firm of Besser or Schlechter, divorce attorneys
   May-14-20 Alekhine vs Reshevsky, 1936
tamar: Alexander was found a-lackin'
   May-13-20 Yu Yangyi vs So, 2020 (replies)
tamar: The Black King and Queen suffered greatly, but not from empty nest syndrome ...
   May-08-20 V Artemiev vs Wei Yi, 2020
tamar: Not so great Snake Variation
