   Oct-17-18 D Howell vs M M Kazhgaleyev, 2018
GlennOliver: 35. Qe3 One of the brilliancies of the tournament from David Howell.
   Sep-19-18 Maroczy vs Charousek, 1896 (replies)
GlennOliver: Excellent pun for this game. I had not previously heard of Charousek, but this is a very fine attacking game, so perhaps time to explore his oeuvre.
   Sep-02-18 M Bertok vs Korchnoi, 1970 (replies)
GlennOliver: I do agree with your complimentary comments about Bertok.
   Sep-01-18 E Cordova vs A Ipatov, 2017 (replies)
GlennOliver: 29. ... Ndc8 yields slightly more defensive options for Black, but only delays the destruction of Black's uncoordinated position.
   Aug-15-18 Alekhine vs Reshevsky, 1937 (replies)
GlennOliver: Alekhine saw that finish at least as early as 28. Nb6 Marvellous vision.
   Aug-02-18 J Diaz vs D Freeman, 2004 (replies)
GlennOliver: This game is a fitting chess tribute to Daniel Freeman, who sadly passed away a few days ago. Very fine play.
   Aug-02-18 Daniel Freeman (replies)
GlennOliver: Rest In Peace, Daniel Freeman. Thank you for creating the most enjoyable chess site of them all. Deep condolences to Daniel's friends and family. And good fortune and success to his friend, Sargon, who will now pick up the reins of Chessgames.
   Jul-28-18 B Adhiban vs D Andreikin, 2017 (replies)
GlennOliver: It was possible to intuit that the double sacrifice 21 Rf5 and 22 Rf5 might open up Black's defensive position and yield an advantage to White. But I'm sure that even Adhiban's brilliance hadn't analysed that through to the eventual endgame 25 moves later.
   Jun-16-18 Nakamura vs A Giri, 2018 (replies)
GlennOliver: I would guess this game must indicate time trouble for Giri. White stands better but Black has distinct drawing chances.
   May-10-18 Russian Team Championship (2018) (replies)
GlennOliver: The real chiller was 14. Qb7, after which the Queen is dead and White's game entirely lost. It takes some doing for White's position to be hopeless after just 14 moves of the Classical Variation of the Giuoco Pianissimo.
