   Jan-14-19 E J Diemer vs Portz, 1948
Isilimela: From a very similar opening, a very similar conclusion: Keres vs Verbac, 1933
   Jan-14-19 Erdos vs Lichtner, 1922
Isilimela: An exquisite position after 15 Nf6 ! Erdos knights errant.
   Jan-14-19 Keres vs Verbac, 1933
Isilimela: The bishop's sermon: "Hell hath no fury like a captured Queen!"
   Oct-25-18 G MacDonnell vs Bird, 1874 (replies)
Isilimela: How about Crazeyritsky Gambit ?
   Oct-08-18 Ding Liren vs J K Duda, 2018 (replies)
Isilimela: Why is the opening Queen's Gambit "Declined" when at move 4 ... dxc4 is played ?
   Oct-04-18 Bu Xiangzhi vs Y Saber, 2018
Isilimela: 16. dxc5 is an interesting move. I would have played c3 supporting the centre. Wonder what Bu's thinking was on this decision? Also why his opponent delayed recapture ?
   Aug-23-18 Macieja vs Karpov, 2003 (replies)
Isilimela: "He simply gave back the pawn". Computer analysis indicates he should have defended his pawn with 6. g5. By move 9 it's showing white at +1.7 and recommends the following line instead of 10. Bxh6: 10. h3 Nd7 11. Bd3 f5 12 Neg5 Bd6 13. Kf2! 0-0 14. Bxd6 Qxd6 14 Re1 Nf6 15. Re1 Nf6 ...
   Aug-13-18 Morphy vs Mongredien, 1859
Isilimela: Paul Morphy 1 Inaccuracies 0 Mistakes 0 Blunders 10 Average centipawn loss Perfection - more or less!
   Jul-26-18 Philidor vs NN, 1790
Isilimela: Hate to dampen the "Philidor fervour" but if you pop this game into an engine, it shows a big plus for black most of the game (moves 12 to 27)! Lovely queen sac to finish off all the same.
   Jun-27-18 R Pruijssers vs R Praggnanandhaa, 2018 (replies)
Isilimela: Mate from a clear blue sky if you look at the position round about move 26 or so!
