   Jun-07-18 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: I just tried out ulhumbrus's idea on stockfish (sorry) and saw a problem. pawn takes, rook takes, h3 and then if knight retreats to f6 the rook gets trapped. Andrew
   May-18-18 S Shankland vs A Rakhmanov, 2018
Andrew Chapman: 39. Rh8+ was possible, but the engine says the move played was stronger. Andrew
   Apr-22-18 I Rogers vs V Arapovic, 1985 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: <black knight c6> in your line after 27.. Rc4, the computer gives a small advantage for black. Andrew
   Apr-08-18 P Motwani vs P Roca, 1986 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: Stockfish's second choice is Kb2 followed by a knight promotion and a small advantage. Andrew
   Mar-24-18 Myagmarsuren vs H MacGrillen, 1972 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: 'After 54. Rh7+ K any 55. Rxb7, there's no way to prevent promotion. Black's goose is cooked, and so is the puzzle.' 54Rh7+ Rg8. Which explains 53...Kf7 Andrew
   Mar-12-18 Carlsen vs K Holm, 2018 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: I got this eventually after realising that after Qg6, knight takes, Bg5 would be mate because the rook now holds the seventh rank. So I was looking for somewhere to put the knight with check to get it out of the way of the bishop, tried h5 and then finally realised that that ...
   Dec-19-17 I Myall vs C Rice, 2015 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: Many of us can learn a lot from games by less advanced players - who are probably both stronger in this case than many of us - than me anyway. It would be great if those who can see Black's errors would point them out so that we can all learn.
   Nov-06-17 Grischuk vs Mamedyarov, 2017 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: 'Better would have been to play Bh4 after Black's pawn move h6. ' Black didn't play h6. Did you mean f6? Andrew
   Nov-01-17 S Brunello vs Short, 2017
Andrew Chapman: The engine says this is won for black, despite white's mate threat. I can see that if Nd5, black has Qd4 winning the bishop.
   Oct-29-17 V Erdos vs H Steingrimsson, 2017 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: Black is lost after Bxc5; the engine gives Kg7 as best.
