   Jan-01-19 Steinitz vs Lang, 1860 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: < thesonicvision: please...this is hurting my head. starting from move 10, black resists capturing d4.>10..Nxd4 looks best, breaking up White's very dangerous looking pawn centre. The engine agrees.
   Dec-27-18 Gulko vs Timman, 1987 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: <Amarande>30. Qe7.
   Dec-24-18 Lasker vs Teichmann, 1909 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: '150th Birthday' would imply that they were alive; and '150th Anniversary' invites the question 'anniversary of what?' so I am not sure '150th Birthday Anniversary' is really tautologous.
   Dec-01-18 Movsesian vs Ni Hua, 2006 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: 'What more can Black wish for by opening with a French Defence? After 14.- Bc5, he had central pawns, Bishop pair, better development.' He's a piece down, that's the slight problem. The engine says white is +.95, but it looks hard to play.
   Nov-23-18 Spielmann vs Reti, 1913 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: I thought 18.b3 was natural, while Rxa7 seems strange since c2 is unprotected whereas c7 is protected. The engine agrees with me, for a change.
   Nov-14-18 R Jumabayev vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2018
Andrew Chapman: White avoided repetition of moves at 32. and the engine says he had the advantage at that point - but I would have said otherwise with the king stuck in the centre.
   Nov-13-18 L Christiansen vs Alburt, 1990
Andrew Chapman: Robyn, but Breunor commented intelligently on the computer evaluation, and also he pointed out when the engine assessment took a turn for the worse, which is of interest.
   Nov-08-18 Naiditsch vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: 35...Nf4 is an obvious possibility. I wonder what Nakamura thought he saw that made him reject it?
   Nov-08-18 Krasenkow vs Karpov, 2003 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: Instructive that 29...Qb2 doesn't work. As a guy at my old chess club used to say to me - 'look at the whole board' - which I often failed to do as I should, and still do, as in this case. Andrew
   Nov-07-18 J Coll Ortega vs A Suarez Real, 2012 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: The engine gives black the edge after 19. ..Qf6.
