   Jul-16-18 Naiditsch vs C Jeitz, 2016 (replies)
 
Jamboree: Although the easy two-move mate Qxh7 is obvious, I actually prefer the almost comical longer win that goes like this (as also noted above by Honey Blend, I just realized): 26. ♖d6! ♘xd6 27. ♘f6 ♖g7 28. ♖h3 ...and no matter what black does, white will ...
 
   Jul-14-18 A Gorovets vs Fedorov, 2005 (replies)
 
Jamboree: After 19. ... Ref8, why doesn't white just make the obvious move, 20. Qxg7+, saccing the bishop back in order to get the dangerous black queen off the board, neutralizing black's threats? I see 19. ... Ref8 20. Qxg7+ Qxg7 21. Bxg7+ Kxg7 22. Nd4 ...which rescues the knight ...
 
   Jul-12-18 W So vs R Praggnanandhaa, 2018 (replies)
 
Jamboree: So had an automatic easy draw up to move 62. The game-losing blunder was 62. Kc6???, allowing black to queen the pawn. Instead, simply 62. RxP leads to a quick draw after 62. ... KxR and now black can't coordinate his pieces quickly enough to stop both pawns, and must sac a piece, ...
 
   Jul-04-18 E Yakushina vs E Ustich, 2018
 
Jamboree: 85. Bg7??? White already had black trapped in the correct corner early in the 50 moves -- and then intentionally let her out of the box! 85. Nf7 Kf8 86. Nd6 sets up the mating net fairly quickly.
 
   May-09-18 D Dordzhieva vs Kosteniuk, 2018 (replies)
 
Jamboree: 116. f1=R! prevents a stalemate trap and leads to a possibly unique final position of three (!) rooks versus a queen. In all my years of playing chess, I don't think I've ever seen a serious tournament game where one player ended up with three rooks.
 
   May-04-18 E Ovod vs Margarita Lysenko, 2018 (replies)
 
Jamboree: I nominate this for worst game of the year. literally 100 moves in a row of doing nothing and going nowhere. Why???
 
   Apr-20-18 Maggie Feng vs A Sharevich, 2018
 
Jamboree: On move 57 black should have least tried 57. ... Ne4!? followed by NxP, and force white to prove she can mate with a B+N -- which a surprising number of players have never bothered to master, because it comes up so rarely. The game as played was infinitely worse, because in the ...
 
   Mar-12-18 Carlsen vs K Holm, 2018 (replies)
 
Jamboree: The weird aspect of this game that no one's commenting about is this: The black player was rated 2436??? That's a FIDE International Master-level rating. And yet he played nearly like an amateur for many moves. First, between moves 8 and 12 he spends five entire moves in the ...
 
   Mar-10-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
 
Jamboree: More important than "natural talent" and even "hard work" is simply this: learning how to play at a very young age. The younger you learn, and the more you play as a young child, the more your brain gets permanently imprinted with chess fundamentals and the ability to visualize the
 
   Mar-05-18 Karjakin vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
 
Jamboree: This was the game that decided the whole tournament. Karjakin finished with 10 points; Nakamura finished with 8.5. If Nakamura had won this game, he would have finished with 9.5, and Karjakin with only 9. And since the turning point of this game was a single move -- Karjakin's 29. ...
