   Sep-01-19 Carlsen vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2017
 
Albanius: 9 ..Rab8!! is a mysterious rook move for the ages.
 
   Jul-07-19 A Ramirez Alvarez vs Kaidanov, 2011
 
Albanius: This is more of a Reti than an English by move 5. Black's 6th turns it into a Benoni reversed.

   May-19-19 Nakamura vs Ding Liren, 2019 (replies)

Albanius: After move 6, this is more a Dragon than a Najdorf.
 
   Apr-01-19 Robson vs Nakamura, 2019 (replies)
 
Albanius: Note that after 30..a3!, 31 b3? allows 31..Rb2+ 32 Ka1 Qc2! and mate on b1, or a2 if the N moves,.
 
   Mar-24-19 Caruana vs L Dominguez, 2019 (replies)
 
Albanius: Fabi missed a win with 47 Qf3! threatening Qxf7+ mating, instead of 47 Kh2? Qf6! If 47 ..f5 or ..f6, 48 Qh5! Qd5+ 49 Kh2 followed by Qg6+ If 47 ..Qf8 or ..Qe8, 48 Qb7! Nd5 49 Ra8 wins the Q So the only defense to immediate loss is 47 ..Qd5, when 48 Rxf7 Qxf3+ 49 Rxf3 is a won ...
