   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.

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.
 
   Jul-25-18 Carlsen vs Svidler, 2018 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: Bb8 ?! Preparatory to f4. If Rc8, Bg3 again.
 
   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.
 
   Apr-30-18 European Individual Chess Championship (2018)
 
GlennOliver: gomila, If you are Mr Saric, or a friend of his, then no offence is intended. Mr Saric clearly had a very good tournament, playing some fine chess, and was not responsible for the players against whom he was (and was not) drawn to play. My point is that a Swiss tournament runs ...
 
   Mar-25-18 McShane vs Fedorov, 2018 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: A far-sighted Queen sac from Luke McShane yielding a well-crafted victory.
 
   Mar-25-18 G Jones vs E Inarkiev, 2018 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: Magnificent attacking play from Gawain Jones, a worthy contender for game of the tournament. Jones continues to develop his all-round game, and has the talent to establish his place amongst the 2700+ elite.
 
   Mar-07-18 Anand vs Grischuk, 2018 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: Very sporting of Grischuk to recognise the beauty of Anand's game and not to resign but instead to play it through to mate.
