   Sep-04-23 Tigran V Petrosian
Ron: <gezafan: Petrosian was known for his king moves as was Steinitz. It would be interesting to say what players made the most king moves and what players castled the least. You could analyze it per game, per set number of moves, for example 40, and in different phases of the game. 40 ...

Ron: In the first game given by <Honest Adin Review > Emory Tate declined to play a sacrifice--which I think is in line with his playing style--that is favored by Stockfish 15. After the position: Honest Adin Reviews: SOME FINE GAMES, COURTESY OF LEGENDARY CHESS CHAMP: Emory Tate / GM

   Apr-20-23 Ding Liren vs Nepomniachtchi, 2023 (replies)
Ron: About an hour ago, Stockfish gave Ding a 1.78 advantage. I leave to prepare myself for work. Now it gives zero evaluation.
   Apr-18-23 Nepomniachtchi - Ding World Championship Match (2023) (replies)
Ron: This is a very human championship match.
   Apr-15-23 Nepomniachtchi vs Ding Liren, 2023 (replies)
Ron: 48...Ke8 is best for Black, according to Stockfish. Still losing though.
   Apr-09-23 Alexander Alekhine (replies)
Ron: The pronunciation feature that goes with the player's biography I find pretty cool. I was curious how it would pronounce 'Alekhine'.
