   Oct-19-17 J A Grefe vs Lombardy, 1977
BwanaVa: Nice assault! 31. Kd2 Q:c3+ 32. Ke2 Ng3+ wins the house.
   Oct-17-17 Szabo vs Denker, 1946
BwanaVa: This is good, but his roll of Fine in the 1944 US Championship has to be his best...
   Aug-04-17 Aronian vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
BwanaVa: Nerwal and JimNorCal-Thank you!
   Jul-27-17 A Lein vs Polugaevsky, 1966
BwanaVa: In "Flank Openings", Raymond Keene annotates 24. Ng4 with "Lein wakes up!", and describes the systematic "peeling back" of black's defenses.
   Apr-12-17 A Lein vs Denker, 1976 (replies)
BwanaVa: A game of some historic importance. 1976 was the year of the "Soviet Invasion", with Shamkovich and Lein being the first to come over. Denker, US Champion in 1944, had been absent from competitive chess for years reentered the fray after retiring. This game was played in the last ...
   Mar-03-17 Nikolay 2 Solovjev vs Aydin Suleymanli, 2016
BwanaVa: What happened? Black resigns here? Or is part of the game score missing and does the game continue for a while before white wins? Time loss? What happened?
   Jan-27-17 B Gledura vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
BwanaVa: I will note in passing that this is not a Kings Indian Attack. It may be a Reti-English hybrid, but it is not a KIA.
   Dec-27-16 L Pantsulaia vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
BwanaVa: Not a Kings Indian Attack. This is an English by transposition.
   Dec-15-16 Fischer vs Robert E Byrne, 1965 (replies)
BwanaVa: Offramp-as a French Defense player, I suggest when the "stop for a think" happens its because the player is deciding what line to follow and likely result. Are you going to play 3...Nf6, 3...c5, 3...Nc6, or even play 3...de4 and slide into (I think its the) Burn variation? Black's ...
   Nov-22-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
BwanaVa: Is there any benefit to white playing 31.Rxd7 (giving up the rook for two minor pieces) instead of 31. h3? I am not seeing blacks plan after 31...Nxd7 32. Qxd7 Qxe3+ 33. Kf1 Qc1+ 34. Kf2 Qxc4, but it would seem that White has stablized the situation...
