thekleinbottle: Here is what Fritz running on my computer said: (1) Andrei Kharlov (2593) - Veselin Topalov (2737) [C24] FIDE World Championship Tripoli, Libya (5.2), 29.06.2004 [Fritz 8 (120s)] C24: Bishop's Opening: 2...Nf6 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6 3.d3 c6 4.Nf3 Be7 5.0–0 d6 6.a4 0–0 ...
   Dec-23-03 Petrov Defense (C42) (replies)
thekleinbottle: Andrewpatrick: Does anyone know any good books on the Petrov defense for the intermediate player? I like playing this opening... I'd like to learn more about how to play it correctly "The Petroff" by Lasha Janjgava is decent. I own it, though I have yet to play it over the ...
   Dec-05-03 Spassky vs Fischer, 1960 (replies)
thekleinbottle: Benjamin Lau: Modern theory has since found equality for black in most lines I know of, and significant advantages in others. True, but if you are familiar with the opening and its strategies and like the types of positions that usually occur, why not play it anyway? At least
   Dec-05-03 Spassky vs Fischer, 1992 (replies)
thekleinbottle: Thanks for the replies, PinkPanther, Honza Cervenka, and Spitecheck. I find these games with the closed positions very interesting to analyze but extremely difficult to play...Spassky seems to have a lot of these strange looking games in closed positions (another one I looked
   Nov-30-03 Anand vs Karpov, 1996 (replies)
thekleinbottle: PinkPanther & Shadout Mapes: Exactly which Kasparov-Topalov game are you referring to? Does anyone mind posting the exact game if it is in this database?
   Nov-24-03 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
thekleinbottle: Did black have any winning chances in this endgame at any point? After White's 32nd move, black has a passed a-pawn. Doesn't this sometimes offer winning chances in this type of rook endgame (R+3P v. R+3P)? Someone please tell me why the following try for winning chances by ...
   Nov-17-03 Reshevsky vs Keres, 1948 (replies)
thekleinbottle: Anyone know what the losing move here is? What's wrong with 32. Be2 (followed by Bf3 at some point)?
   Nov-16-03 Kasparov vs X3D Fritz, 2003 (replies)
thekleinbottle: patzer2, do you have the link for the ESPN commentary? I just went to their website and could not find the article you mention. That is indeed a pleasant surprise that ESPN would cover this event...
   Nov-16-03 C Lutz vs Karpov, 1993 (replies)
thekleinbottle: I've seen this game in 2 books now... amazing endgame technique by Karpov. After sacrificing the exchange on move 21, he slowly grinds down his opponent over the next 50+ moves...
   Nov-07-03 Klementiev vs A Mikhalchishin, 1974 (replies)
thekleinbottle: How sound is this 5...b5 variation of the two knights for black? You don't see it very often--at least in my experience.
