   May-17-18 Ruy Lopez (C70)
Amarande: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 b5 5. Bb3 Nf6 6. Ng5 d5 7. exd5 Nxd5 8. Nxf7 Kxf7 9. Qf3+ Ke6 10. Nc3 Ne7 11. d4 c6 12. Bg5 Bb7 13. O-O-O b4 14. Ne4 Qc8 15. Nc5+ Kd6 16. dxe5+ Kc7 17. Bxe7 Bxe7 18. Bxd5 cxd5 19. Nxb7 Qxb7 20. Rxd5 Rab8 21. Rhd1 Rhd8 22. Qf7 Kc8 23. Qe6+ Rd7 ...
   Feb-14-18 J P Sonnet vs M Poupinel, 1985 (replies)
Amarande: The loss of a whole Queen is pretty much the best Black can do, in fact - 23 ... Kxg7 24 Qg5+ Kh8 25 Qf6+ Kg8 26 Rd3 Rxe4 (else mate on the g-file) 27 Rg3+ Rg4 28 Rxg4+ Qxg4 29 hxg4 (up Queen for Rook) Bc7 (there seems nothing better?) 30 Bc2!! winning the Rook! (Mate in five is ...
   Dec-19-17 I Myall vs C Rice, 2015 (replies)
Amarande: 28 ... Kb8 29 Nc6+ and Black's Queen is toast. If Black tries to meet the threat Qd7+ there follows such lines as: 27 ... Rcd8 28 Qa7+ Kc8 29 Nxc4 dxc4 30 Re7 Qc6 31 b5, also winning the Queen. 27 ... Rcd8 28 Qa7+ Kd6 29 Qxb6+ Ke7 30 Qc7+ Kf8 (Ke8 31 Ng6+ is the end) 31 Nd7+ Rxd7 ...
   Dec-12-17 R J Dive vs P W Stuart, 1987 (replies)
Amarande: <Walter Glattke 29.Rd7+ Qxd7 30.Rh7+ Rf7 31.Rxf7+ Kxf7 32.Qxd7 only +-> Seems to be a forced mate actually, something on the lines of 32 ... Kg6 33 Qf5+ Kg7 34 Nh5+ Kh8 35 Nf6 Nxf6 36 Qxf6+ Kg8 37 Bb2 Rf8 38 Qg6+ Kh8 39 Bxe5+ Rf6 40 Bxf6# (Mate in eleven starting with Rh7+, I
   Dec-08-17 Ding Liren vs E Inarkiev, 2015 (replies)
Amarande: Missed it, after initially thinking of Bc2 but it seemed the Bishop was important to keep. The line I tried was 30 Ne6 Nxe6 (virtually forced, since Qxg7# and both Rooks are threatened, and Nf5? blocks the Queen) 31 Bxe6 Ng8 (the Bishop is immune, and 32 Bf5 is threatened) 32 Qh5, ...
   Nov-15-17 E Paehtz vs M Geldyeva, 2016 (replies)
Amarande: Not quite but it is mate in a few moves anyway: 31 ... Kb4 32 Re4+ Ka3 33 Rxa4#. (Black can delay one move by giving the Q on either move 31 or 32)
   Nov-08-17 King's Gambit Accepted (C34) (replies)
Amarande: Alternatives are dangerous for Black. Here is a natural one (which is apparently the second most popular move, despite its hazards). 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Nf3 d6 4 Bc4 g5? <Not sure this is really losing but it's playing with fire for sure. Play h6 first!> 5 h4! <Time ...
   Sep-28-17 D K Shah vs N Pienabarca, 2013 (replies)
Amarande: 5 dxe5 seems tense at best, and indeed, Bc5 sets up a similar push against f2 to that seen in the Lolli Attack in the Two Knights (5 ... Nxd5 6 d4). White is pretty much in the snake's coils by about move 11, and seems to have little chance to vary in between. (Such measures as, ...
   Sep-21-17 I Korepanova vs A Tishkov, 2007 (replies)
Amarande: <areknames> It hardly matters, even without the possibility of en passant, 38 ... Bc4 would have been just as fatal over only a few more moves.
   Jul-02-17 G Grasser vs L Winokur, 2014 (replies)
Amarande: Of course, if 34 ... Qxc3 then simply 35 Rf7+ Kg8 (Ke8 36 Ng7#) 36 bxc3, and Black is in soon to be zugzwang in addition to being a piece down.
