   Jul-16-18 Naiditsch vs C Jeitz, 2016 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: For a couple of minutes I was trying to make 26. ♖d6 work: 26. ♖d6 ♘xd6 27. ♘f6 ♖g7 28. ♖h3 with an Arabian mate in the loom. [DIAGRAM] But then again I forget that it's not a Wednesday/Thursday puzzle.
 
   Apr-12-18 G Goldberg vs Bronstein, 1961
 
Honey Blend: <Gouvaneur> You are right in that sense, but what one would do in such a situation largely depends on one's play style I'd say. It's just that personally I prefer to not beat around the bush and thrust the spear when my opponent's belly is wide open so I can get on with ...

Honey Blend: Just wondering if ignoring the back rank threat is worth it, e.g. 26. gxf7 ♕a1+ 27. ♔d2 ♖f8 etc. [DIAGRAM]
 
   Mar-27-18 Kramnik vs NN, 1999 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: If 14. ... ♗e7 15. ♖xe7 ♔f8, White has the lovely finish 16. ♘e6+! fxe6 17. ♕xd6: [DIAGRAM] Followed by 17. ... ♘xf6 18. ♖d7+ etc
 
   Mar-22-18 Szabo vs Euwe, 1946 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: I recall from one of Reuben Fine's books that I read before where he emphasized the importance of 8. ♘c3 in this variation of QGA, e.g. 8. ♘c3 b5 8. ♗b3 c4 9. ♗b2 ♘b4 10. ♗b1 and White keeps the Bishop pair: [DIAGRAM] Or 8. ... cxd4 9. exd4 ...
 
   Mar-20-18 Polugaevsky vs Nunn, 1980 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: In the above line, 24. ... ♔g7 25. ♕xc3+ f6 26. gxh3+ looks even worse for Black. [DIAGRAM]
 
   Mar-06-18 A Rychagov vs A Lanin, 2008 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: Wouldn't 14. ♘b5 be more straightforward?
 
   Jan-28-18 Karpov vs Topalov, 1994 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: <al wazir: Where's the win after 23...Qd6 ?> 23. ... ♕d6 24. ♕xc8 ♖c7 25. ♕g4 ♖xc6 26. cxb5 axb5 27. ♘xb5 puts white three ♙'s ahead with a comfortable looking endgame coming up. [DIAGRAM]
 
   Jan-16-18 Spassky vs A Pomar Salamanca, 1967 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: At first glance 40. ... g6 looks like it can hold the fortress with good prospects for counterplay if White does not keep f3 in check or prevent the ...♕g5-♖g2 or ♖g1 maneuver. The danger of ♖d8 followed by ♕ entering the 8th rank seems to be the ...
 
   Jan-13-18 Navara vs E Inarkiev, 2016 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: Although it looks like a swindle, after 37. ♘xg6+ ♔xg6 38. ♗f7+ ♔g5 39. ♗xe8 ♘xe3, things still looks hopeless. ...c3 will soon follow. [DIAGRAM] I'd think a bit better may be 37. ♘d3+ followed by ♘xb2.
