   Sep-18-17 A Sokolov vs Spassky, 1985
A.T PhoneHome: 31. Nh6 intends 32. Qxg7 Kxg7 33. Nf5+, winning material.
   Sep-16-17 Rauzer vs A Kaspersky, 1927
A.T PhoneHome: 21. Nc6 is a nice move. For example: 21... bxc6 22. dxc6 Bxc6 23. Bxc6, winning the exchange. 21... bxc6 22. dxc6 Bc8 23. Bd5+ Kh8 24. Bxf6#. ... Be6 to stop Bd5+ wouldn't be any better as Black cannot take on e6 after Bxe6. ... Bxd5 would simply be answered with Rxe7.
   Sep-16-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
A.T PhoneHome: I'm really happy for Aronian. He's won this year's edition of Grenke Classic, Norway Chess and Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz and now he's in the last 8 of the FIDE World Cup. Right now, I would vote him Player of the Year. Hopefully he will finish the year in similar manner.
   Sep-13-17 Levenfish vs V Makogonov, 1939
A.T PhoneHome: If 36... Qxa2, 37. Ra1 Qb2 38. Bd4 wins the black queen.
   Sep-12-17 Panov vs M Yudovich Sr., 1937
A.T PhoneHome: Owing to the gung-ho nature of this game, another pun could have been "Yudoka".
   Sep-11-17 V Makogonov vs Ragozin, 1943
A.T PhoneHome: If 38... Qxb4?? 39. Qxf6#. I found 35. f5 interesting. If 35... Bxf5, White could play 36. Qf4, threatening to win one of the aligned bishops. Pretty rook sacrifice by Makogonov as well. 42. Qc1 threatens 43. Bxa1#. So the bishop has to be moved, but in doing so Black allows ...
   Sep-11-17 Kan vs V Makogonov, 1943
A.T PhoneHome: Nice tactical shot by Makogonov: Kan cannot play 32. Rd1 due to 32... Bb3, winning the white rook with 33... Rd1+. But after 32... Bc4 (threatening 33... Rf1#) Kan has to play the unpleasant Rd1 any way and concede the rook to avoid being checkmated.
   Sep-11-17 Bu Xiangzhi vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
A.T PhoneHome: Surprises like Carlsen's exit are what make chess interesting. It is brilliant to watch him excel, but chess is about a lot more than one man.
   Sep-09-17 Alekhine vs Nimzowitsch, 1930
A.T PhoneHome: Pretty good pun actually. The styling of it brings to mind some war apparatus such as M46 Patton, which is only fitting since strategically chess game can be likened to a war. But I also feel that "Under the Gun" was a better pun. It was more ominous. Naming the battery "the ...
   Sep-02-17 Levenfish vs Chekhover, 1933
A.T PhoneHome: If 19... Nc2+, then 20. Qxc2 Qxd5 and 21. Bc4, winning black queen.
