   Nov-16-17 S Sagar vs D Mirzoyan, 2016 (replies)
Calar: 16...Qf6 17. Bh7+ Kxh7 18.Bg5+ , no?
   Jul-12-17 Yifan Hou vs R Rapport, 2017 (replies)
Calar: <Does Be7 in the 2 Knights or Giuoco Piano work at all? I have never played it.> Sure, in fact - it's Black's most common response to 4.d3. Black plans to quickly castle and then decide whether he wants to move his d-pawn one or two squares forward, depending on a situation. ...
   Sep-14-16 Chess Olympiad (Women) (2016) (replies)
Calar: 1. China 2. Poland 3. Ukraine Congrats to them :) Very tense and close Olympiad
   Sep-14-16 Chess Olympiad (2016) (replies)
Calar: 1. USA 2. Ukraine 3. Russia Congrats to the winners :)
   Sep-03-16 Wei Yi vs B Sadiku, 2016 (replies)
Calar: 19..Qf6 20.Bxf7+ Qxf7 21.Nxf7 Kxf7 22.Rxe7+ Kxe7 23.Qg7+ leaves Black overwhelmingly behind in material. Great attacking game by Wei Yi, punishing lack of development from Black.
   Aug-10-16 Topalov vs Ding Liren, 2016 (replies)
Calar: What's the reason behind 16...b4? Whatever compensation Black was supposed to have for the pawn - I don't see it.
   Jul-24-16 A Giri vs Nakamura, 2016
Calar: I think not. You usually want to play these type of sacrifices with more material, where ruined kingside pawn structure amounts to attack on the King or at least permanent usable weaknesses around him. Position after move 25 is different. Just tak alook at all of these open files and ...
   Jul-24-16 Tal vs Kirjatsky, 1959 (replies)
Calar: It takes two to form such a brilliancy - for it was one of the most amazing tactical fireworks I've seen in a chess game. Big kudos to Kirjatsky for great defense. Tal, of course, shows again why he's one of best attackers in chess history. Needless to say, I couldn't solve the ...
   Jun-07-16 E Polovnikova-Atalik vs A Ushenina, 2016
Calar: Nice tactics! 18...Bg5 frees the f6 square with the tempo and enables 19...Nf6 winning the exchange. Still, the position afterwards must be difficult to convert. Rooks love space and open files, and both are pretty hard to create in a position after e.g. 23...Bh6.
   Jun-07-16 European Individual Championship (Women) (2016) (replies)
Calar: Kudos to GM Anna Ushenina :) One thing to note is how hard she had to work for all of her wins - the shortest game she won lasted for 51 moves.
