  • Black's early queen swap against the Bronstein Gambit

    I never consulted a book about the 1. d4 Nf6 2. g4 gambit. Its ideas are easy to see — get the center early, and the g-file late — so when an FM opponent played 5...e5 in an early trial, I sorta freaked. "Uh oh," I thought, "if a strong player... | Read More

  • Hou Yifan Stops the (almost) Unstoppable: Dortmund R3

    Hou Yifan was the one to take half a point away from Mr. Nisipeanu today as the "victim" of a prepetual. Kramnik beat Nepom (which was not unexpected), Naiditsch beat So (I guess I'm pretty happy about that) and Caruana beat Meier (he finally know... | Read More

  • Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu vs. Wesley So, Dortmund 2015, 1-0
