   Mar-27-14 E Zhang vs A Williams, 2013
 
Al Williams: It appears black could force a win after 57.Re7 with 57. Qb6+ 58.Ke8 Qc7! as in the previous post. 57. e5 advancing the pawn unnecessarily exposed the king to lateral checks when the paramount problem was how to control the b pawn. Although I played accurately to take advantage ...
 
   Feb-01-14 A Williams vs E Sokolovsky, 2013
 
Al Williams: 42 Bc5 not too shabby!
 
   Jan-23-14 A Kats vs A Williams, 2013 (replies)
 
Al Williams: I think this is a fine example of late king side castling as a potent attacking mechanism for black! The endgame also had some interesting nuances.
 
   Jul-02-13 J L Watson vs A Williams, 1979
 
Al Williams: Mutual time pressure if I remember accurately. It's interesting how one can make meaningful cogent moves under duress that hold up to subsequent scrutiny.
 
   Mar-12-13 Kenneth Eng vs A Williams, 2012
 
Al Williams: This was a last round game where both players had experienced a mediocre performance and were not at all interested in a peaceful result. After 29. ..Ng2 I think it was all downhill for white.

Al Williams: I'm having problems submitting my games. I keep getting a message "your PGN lacks the white tag". What the heck does that mean?
 
   Oct-22-12 A Williams vs H Itkis, 2011
 
Al Williams: I guess she never saw 21. Rxc6! until it was too late.
 
   Oct-18-12 M Wilder vs A Williams, 1979
 
Al Williams: I caught Michael when he was a young IM on the road to his GM title. Of course I was relatively young then too!
 
   Dec-10-11 D Itkin vs A Williams, 2011
 
Al Williams: Funny after such a long layoff (20 yrs!) I still should have seen 33. Bg2 34. Qg2 Qg2 35. Kg2 Rd3 with a clear win being up 2 pawns and the initiative. Instead I played 33. Qa8 which was not as good but induced the blunder 34. Bb5 losing a piece. Sometimes you can win faster ...
 
   Nov-17-11 V Romanenko vs A Williams, 2011 (replies)
 
Al Williams: My first game in about 20 years! Not that bad I thought, perhaps a premature d5 otherwise very competitive. Vladi went on to earn his final GM norm so I'm glad for him.
