   Jul-29-21 Duda vs V S Gujrathi, 2021 (replies)
thelegendisback: A brilliant game by Duda. At first glace the endgame seemed very balanced but then Duda first found this idea to transfer his knight on d3 and then found the brilliant moves Kh1!! and Nxb4!
   Jul-29-21 World Cup (2021) (replies)
thelegendisback: <jphamlore> had a good position after the opening but blundered later. i therefore completely don't understand your post.
   Jul-25-21 D Andreikin vs V Ivic, 2021 (replies)
thelegendisback: 70.Kg4?? is a huge blunder allowing Rb4-Ra4 with pawn promotion. Either Kg3 or h5 would keep the balance.
   Jul-24-21 Carlsen vs Wojtaszek, 2021 (replies)
thelegendisback: 18...Nc6 was the right move if Qxb7 then black has Nxd4! Bxd4 Rfb8 which forces white to play Be5 and the position is completely drawish.
   Jul-23-21 Wojtaszek vs Carlsen, 2021
thelegendisback: instead of Qxh4 Carlsen missed the strong Ndxe5 dxe5 Nxe5 Bxc8 Nf3 Kf1 Qxh4. Also Carlsen almost certainly missed Rda2!, the only move which keeps white in the game. It was a very counter-intuitive but brilliant move by Wojtaszek.

thelegendisback: I think Carlsen was expecting 25...Rf2 and had prepared a brilliant win with Rxh7!! Rxg2 Nf6! gxf6 gxf7 checkmate. But instead Wojtaszek shocked him with 25...Qf2!, a move completely missed by Carlsen. Later instead of Bxf5 Carlsen could have tried Qe4 but black has Qf3 Qxf3
   Apr-05-21 Polgar vs Ljubojevic, 1992 (replies)
thelegendisback: does anybody know what was the result of this blitz tournament?
   Apr-01-21 Korchnoi vs Spassky, 1971 (replies)
thelegendisback: <Petrosianic: It wouldn't fit there. The whole point of the discussion is to try to dismiss the result of the 1968 Candidates Final. Gaito's original point was that Korchnoi was better than Spassky in 1968 because he was better in 1977.> Stop making up stuff, Gaito ...

thelegendisback: Alexander Koblenz's book Mikhail Tal: The Street-Fighting Years.
   Mar-31-21 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1921 (replies)
thelegendisback: <sudoplatov: Capablanca's note to move 21 (about the Knight moves being needed to force White to play c3 and thus weaken the pawn on b3 which in turn will need Piece protection illustrates how Grandmasters seem to see infinitely far ahead. Botvinnik remarked similarly in ...
