   Apr-24-17 Alekhine vs A Munoz, 1945 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Moving the N to threaten mate and attack the Black Q is the answer; 15.Nf5. The position after move 8 is quoted anonymously in Abrahams' "Chess Mind" - it's unclear if he saw it as a game or an analysis.
   Apr-23-17 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1990 (replies)
AlicesKnight: <ChessHigherCat>; <rap music is capable of propagating itself through the furthest reaches of the void...> - Indeed - just listen to the rhythm of any self-respecting beat-boxing pulsar. In the game, was 43...BxN an error? - 44...Rg6 is forced after it and the R is ...
   Apr-22-17 Carlsen vs Yu Yangyi, 2015 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I saw the break-in but did not recognise that the attack could afford the Q exchange. But the active White BN and the neutered Black B meant that Carlsen could ignore the return of the exchange. A very smooth performance.
   Apr-20-17 Fischer vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Compare Steinitz vs Von Bardeleben, 1895 or maybe Yanofsky vs A Dulanto, 1939 for the attacker threatened with mate throughout the final process - exactly calculated.
   Apr-19-17 E Bone vs L Dubeck, 1971 (replies)
AlicesKnight: "Send the cavalry round the back to drive the enemy onto our infantry..." - fine performance.
   Apr-19-17 M Apicella vs I Farago, 2007 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 39.Rxg3 is almost "forced", but removes the guard on b8 for the QNP after 40.b6 and 41.Nb5 (if...Rb3). Let's see - yes. <NBZ> has shown the other line of importance.
   Apr-18-17 A Anastasian vs L Babujian, 2008 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 28.Rg3+ is good. If Black takes, then 29.Qg4+ leads to mate on g7. If he declines with ...Kf8, then 29.Bg7+ leads to something similar, or perhaps loss of the Black Q. 24...g6 was ineffective and weakening.
   Apr-17-17 S Schweber vs Spassky, 1955 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 35.... Rd1 wins Q for R either by R pin or Q skewer from h1.
   Apr-15-17 J Schulten vs Kieseritzky, 1851
AlicesKnight: Congratulations to the Black K-pawn, which visits every possible rank on its way to glory.
   Apr-14-17 A Kharatyan vs A Gasik, 2007 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 34....Rxe2+ seems the best way in; after 35.Kxe2 the pin allows ...Qxe4+ and there should be a way in with the cover blown (no time today).
