   May-27-18 Swiderski vs Schlechter, 1906 (replies)
 
Grandma Sturleigh: 40. e6! would have been a nice finish.
 
   May-23-18 Altibox Norway (2018) (replies)
 
Grandma Sturleigh: <<Sokrates> I agree with you on the 3-1 system, but I don't think any organizer has found "better ways" yet.> Luis Rentero found a better way for Linares. Short (non-fighting) draws meant that you didn't get invited to the next tournament.
 
   May-16-18 R Svane vs B Nuber, 2018 (replies)
 
Grandma Sturleigh: If 49...Kc6 then 40. dxc5 Kxc5 41. Kc3 wins for White.
 
   May-11-18 I Rabinovich vs Ragozin, 1935
 
Grandma Sturleigh: <Sastre: <Skakalec> After 34.Rxa8 Qxf2+ 35.Kh1 Qxf1+ 36.Kh2 Qe2+ 37.Kg1 Qf2+ 38.Kh1 Qxf3+ 39.Kh2, Black has nothing better than a perpetual. There is no way for Black to protect his bishop.> Black can avoid the perpetual with 39...Qe2+ 40. Kg1 Qd1+ 41. Kh2 Qd2+
 
   May-07-18 Sasikiran vs Rublevsky, 2005
 
Grandma Sturleigh: I was expecting 38...Bc6, which seems to win easily.
 
   Apr-27-18 S Brenjo vs D Bojovic, 2008 (replies)
 
Grandma Sturleigh: I didn't see the Qf4 idea, so went with 26. Be5 Bxe5 27. Qh5.
 
   Apr-25-18 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
 
Grandma Sturleigh: I'm surprised to see Carlsen playing the Marshall. Doesn't he usually play less explored openings?
 
   Apr-23-18 A Liang vs Y Zherebukh, 2018 (replies)
 
Grandma Sturleigh: All theory up to move 25, at which point the players in V Kovalev vs N Abasov, 2017 agreed the draw. Games like this make the 30-move draw rule look a bit silly.
 
   Apr-21-18 Saemisch vs Grob, 1936
 
Grandma Sturleigh: White won a pawn in a saemisch and grob raid.
 
   Apr-21-18 B Kreiman vs L Christiansen, 2002 (replies)
 
Grandma Sturleigh: I had 34... Qxg1+ 35. Qxg1 Rxg4 36 Qxg4 Rxb4, after which 37. Qg1 Ra4 is also a draw.
