   Dec-11-18 Aronian vs Anand, 2013 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: The measure of this game is that it will still be studied decades from now and still be yielding tactical insights. A complete masterclass from Anand.
 
   Dec-11-18 Miles vs Polugaevsky, 1984 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: Fascinating game, despite all of the missed opportunities; here's another - 40. ... Rh1 - and Black wins simply after the pawn then promotes with check. Excellent pun also.
 
   Dec-06-18 W So vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: <bcokugras> 30. Nd7 would be followed by 30. ... Nxd7 31. Qxd7 h6 32. Qxa7 At which point Black has an advantage. However, I for one am unable to convert that advantage into a win for Black, no matter how many times I play through the continuation. Every attempt
 
   Nov-04-18 Women's World Championship Knockout Tournament (2018) (replies)
 
GlennOliver: P.S. Sargon, Thank you for all of your efforts in picking up the reins of the chessgames.com site.
 
   Nov-01-18 N Tereshchenko vs Alekhine, 1909
 
GlennOliver: Sacrificing the Knight via 31. Nh4 permits White to prolong the agony, but Alekhine's position is irresistible.
 
   Oct-28-18 G Jones vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: Is this Gawain Jones's first victory against a (sometimes) 2800+ player? A profitable venture outside fashionable opening theory, and well converted in the end game.
 
   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.
