   Feb-26-17 Shabalov vs Aronian, 2004 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I saw the blasting open of the White K-side with the double sacrifice and Q-R intrusion, but not the long-term way to press the attack. A fine piece of sustained pressure.
   Feb-25-17 Karpov vs Sznapik, 1986 (replies)
AlicesKnight: After White's exchange sacrifice I like Black's counter with 19.... Rc4 to blunt the pressure on the diagonal. But the contrast of two deadly White horsemen against two lethargic Black clergymen is striking.
   Feb-25-17 Bacrot vs I Lysyj, 2009 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I tried to make the first capture on e6, as it involved checks and avoided things like ...Bd5 at first, but there was nothing conclusive after 17.Nxe6 fxe6; 18.Qxe6+ Kh8; 19.Nf7+ Rxf7; 20.Qxf7 - Black can offer to exchange Qs and keep the 2 Bs with a long game in view.
   Feb-23-17 S Franklin vs R Norinkeviciute, 2007 (replies)
AlicesKnight: It looks as if 23.Nxe6+ Qxe6; 24.Bxf5 should lead to something; 24.... Qf7 or later ...Rxf6 might be next, leaving White's Ps to be backed by the Rs through the middle. Let's see; - yes, that was the break, though I can't help wondering if the advance of Black's K was the best ...
   Feb-22-17 Kasimdzhanov vs Ponomariov, 2007 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I saw the game-line possibility though I muddied the waters by trying to bring the other White R in earlier. 19...exd5 opened the door; Black must have relied on 20...Bd7 as an answer but missed the Zwischenzug Rxa7.
   Feb-21-17 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927 (replies)
AlicesKnight: <morfishine: Alekhine said while it was exciting to play this game, there were so many errors by both players, it became almost comical> I thought it was the eleventh game that was the 'comedy of errors'. Apologies if I am wrong.
   Feb-20-17 Lahno vs Kosteniuk, 2007 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Seen correctly once the idea of Q_sacrifice was ditched...
   Feb-18-17 R Tischbierek vs E Postny, 2007 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Saw the main idea which looked enough to get a win - and after 39... Bxe6, 40.fxe6, Nf5/e7 is unstoppable.
   Feb-17-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs S Novikov, 2007 (replies)
AlicesKnight: <al wazir: That wasn't difficult at all.> Certainly less difficult than some for poor mortals like me ....
   Feb-16-17 Naiditsch vs Fressinet, 2015 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I looked at ...Bd1 first to allow the tempo gain for the Q to enter. But after 28.Qxd1 Qh3, 29.Bf1 leaves both the key squares g2 and f3 protected. 27... Be2 is less flashy but deadly, leaving the White B overloaded.
