  • Spring Classic in St Louis

    Led by Chucky (Ivanchuk) 5 of the top 100 in the world are playing in a round robin where everyone is over 2600. Our favorite Eric Hansen is also playing. Play started today about an hour ago.

    There is also a B tournament where everyone is over 2500. I'm picking Cristian Chirila to finish big.

            On move 15 in the game Bok - Xiong after black's Nc5 the 4 knights form a knightmove. Geometry, not to be underrated.

                Ray - Ray's f5 is met by the high class Rf4! Exchange sack! Chucky!

                  Chucky's Rc1 - Rc8!! A magnificent conception (even if the computer doesnt like it)

                      Chucky messed up a beautiful position but for entertainment value did not disappoint.

                        In section B all the games were exceptionally entertaining.

                          In the endgame on move 30 Kaidanov missed e4. (Of course!, after you see it)
