   Aug-19-17 Nakamura vs Anand, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: Why did Anand resign in the final position? The material is back to being even after Nakamura picks up one of the rooks. Sure, black's king is more exposed and he may have to give up a pawn to regroup his pieces, but there is no immediate mate and no immediate big material loss ...
   Aug-16-17 Kasparov vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: Is the final position after 37. f3 really so hopeless? Sure, black is threatening all kinds of mates, but white can sac his rook and bishop to get out of the mating net and then be left with a worse position -- but is there any way to get a draw out of it?: 37. ... Rxh7+ 38. Kxh7
   Aug-13-17 E Paoli vs C Kottnauer, 1949 (replies)
Jamboree: "TheTamale: What took me a while to see is that after 19) ... Qxb5, White just plays 20) Nxc7, threatening mate in 1 and picking up the queen as a result." Actually, in that line, can't black stave off mate with 20. ...Nxe5, since that allows the black queen to cover the mating ...
   Jul-18-17 Borbely vs Kovacs, 1948 (replies)
Jamboree: The losing move was, oddly, 12. ...Qxd7?? Even at that point, when it already looks too late, black instead had 12. ... Rb7!. He's temporarily a piece down, BUT the knight on d7 is pinned to the queen and is lost, since it's attacked three times, and black's rook is no longer ...
   Jul-09-17 Adams vs Grischuk, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: 13 moves?!?! Epic! I hope they didn't get injured during this no-holds-barred duel to the death. I'm exhausted from just WATCHING this pyrotechnic masterpiece.
   Jul-08-17 Mamedyarov vs E Inarkiev, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: "Bigfoot713: You suggest a move for black; it's already lost when the queen gets trapped." Well, all sorts of moves other than 19. ... 0-0 save the queen. And while admittedly black may be worse (pawn down, less space, fewer attacking chances) so much so that against a 2800 player ...
   Jun-24-17 Carlsen vs Grischuk, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: How could this result be "0-1"? Black only has a single bishop left. Depending on which version of blitz chess rules they are following, even if Carlsen's flag fell, white "does not have sufficient mating material" according (I think) to the FIDE blitz rules, so it would count as a
   Jun-23-17 S Wafa vs D Harika, 2017
Jamboree: This is the most shocking result I've seen all year. And not just because of the rating difference, but because if you look at Shrook Wafa's other games from recent times, even her 2141 rating seems hugely inflated. So many beginner-level blunders, so many bizarre positional ...
   Jun-16-17 A Giri vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: This is one of those rare amazing positions where a computer (without a tablebase) thinks one side has a total easy win, but humans know from long experience that it is a forced draw, despite appearances. After 51. h7 Kg7! it may LOOK at first glance that white will be two pawns up
   Jun-02-17 O Abdulov vs I Saric, 2017
Jamboree: How rare is this -- the player with two queens, two rooks and a bishop on the board -- and who is also a queen and rook up -- is forced to resign because he has no useful moves! Keep in mind that there was one final trick: White could have tried to stave off mate with 30. Qh8+! ...
