   Mar-23-17 Yu Yangyi vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: After an unexciting first third, we get to have TWO endgames for the price of one - a minor-piece job, and then a Queen ending, closely fought!
 
   Mar-23-17 A Srebrnic vs A Benderac, 2007 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: 23.e6 looks like a big threat, with the attack on the N linked to Qd6+, a R intervention on the K file and possible Nh7+ (if e.g....Qf6), but the g2 mate must be watched. Let's see - yes, the right idea.
 
   Mar-22-17 R Polaczek vs A Antoniou, 2007 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: Afraid I was with the f5 brigade. So efficient - drive off the Q and win the R. But black has walled his pieces in behind each other very well.
 
   Mar-22-17 Panov vs M Yudovich Sr., 1937 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: Some echoes perhaps of Steinitz vs Winawer, 1882 - sacrifice including both rooks, but mishandled and ultimately losing. <stanleys> - quite right, the f7 pawn is usually considered weak, but this one has muscle.
 
   Mar-21-17 F Berkes vs M Neubauer, 2007 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: 26.Nxb5 wins a free pawn because of Bxd5. After ....Rd8, 27.Nd6 again threatens the Black d-pawn and either Q move to defend allows Qxg5+ (though after 27....Qe6 White must guard the first rank). Not won, but winning.
 
   Mar-20-17 D B C Prasad vs V Samolins, 2017 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: 28.Qg8+ with mate next move. Pretty variant on Philidor's legacy. <ChessHigherCat:> Doesn't 24....Rxe8; 25.Qb3+ lead to the mate faster?
 
   Mar-19-17 F A Hoffmann vs A Petrov, 1844 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: They don't make 'em (very often) like this any more ....
 
   Mar-17-17 Stefansson vs Carlsen, 2007 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: <BOSTER> Qa3+ Kxa3; Nc2# (or Black can move the K elsewhere and lose the Q). An endgame by Kubbel, I think - all of the previous play is worth looking at and reinforces the co-ordination point.
 
   Mar-16-17 A Gupta vs R Praggnanandhaa, 2016 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: 55.Rc8 seems to be the key -the threat is Bxc3+ skewering a new-born Q while a K-move allows the c3 capture and safe queening by White. Let's see - yes! A curious battle of passers and opposite Bs.
 
   Mar-15-17 Suetin vs Nezhmetdinov, 1964 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: <An Englishman> Good summary.
