   Oct-18-21 Kramnik vs Giri, 2019 (replies)
tonsillolith: Wow, I would have botched this so hard from the Black side. Very skilled defense by Giri.
   Oct-18-21 Carlsen vs Duda, 2021
tonsillolith: Carlsen continually demonstrates his superiority in every aspect of the game.
   Oct-07-21 Petrosian vs V Zurakhov, 1956
tonsillolith: <28. Kg1!> Zugzwang! Believe it or not, every Black piece is tied down. The least evil is to move the Black bishop, which is tied down to, well, tying down the White bishop. Once the Black bishop retreats, the White bishop is free to abandon the c-pawn and set its sights ...
   Sep-25-21 Yates vs Nimzowitsch, 1929
tonsillolith: Thank you kindly, GM Keene, for compiling that list of Nimzo endgames. For convenience I am supplying links to those games. For a couple there was some ambiguity, so I used my best judgement and/or included extra games matching the criteria. Lasker vs Nimzowitsch, 1934 ...
   Sep-25-21 Nimzowitsch vs Menchik, 1929
tonsillolith: <16. Rac1> appears to me to be a Nimzowitschian <mysterious rook move>, designed to dissuade Black from castling queenside, on threat of <17. c4> opening the file against the queen and king. Just this little extra time preventing Black castling gives White ...
   Sep-25-21 Karpov vs Miroshnichenko, 2005
tonsillolith: <18. Bxe6!> It seems that the onus is on the player who gives up their bishop for a knight to justify the exchange. Why here? Certainly the knight could become a nuisance on d4, <a ghost>, as Nimzowitsch may have put it. But the timing, after <17...Re8>, ...
   Sep-15-21 Norway Chess (2021) (replies)
tonsillolith: < Z truth 000000001: if you don't know what I'm talking about you might benefit from taking SCID out for a spin and see for yourself> It does have a learning curve, but I found it easier to learn than ChessBase (and a bit more versatile too,
   Sep-14-21 J Polgar vs Anand, 1992
tonsillolith: Wow, I love this game! Such powerful positional play. This is an opening I could really get behind. In my elder years I am becoming more of a fan of the French defense.
   Sep-12-21 A Tari vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 (replies)
tonsillolith: Nice array of tactics at the end to win a pawn back, simple but not obvious.
   Sep-09-21 Duda vs Carlsen, 2021
tonsillolith: Jan Krzyszdraw Duda vs Magnus Dr├śwen Carlsen
