LivBlockade: I can take the credit/blame for this game title. My thoughts were: - Jennifer has red hair - During her internet broadcasts, she often mentions the term Rover (maybe she came up with it?), which is a shorthand for the common attacking maneuver of 'Rook up and over', such as in
 
   Mar-25-18 Polugaevsky vs Tal, 1969
 
LivBlockade: [DIAGRAM] The finish might be ...37. ♖c1+; 38. ♔h2 ♗e6; 39. h6 ♗f7; 40. h7+ ♔xh7; 41. ♘e5 winning a piece.
 
   Jan-14-18 Anand vs M Matlakov, 2018 (replies)
 
LivBlockade: [DIAGRAM] Position after 24...Bd7 White alertly played 25. Qd1, as Black threatened 25...Bxa4 as well as a beautiful mate in 3. 25...Ne2+ 26. Kh2 Qxh4+! 27. gxh4 g3 mate! [DIAGRAM]
 
   Nov-16-17 J L Watson vs W Martz, 1976
 
LivBlockade: [DIAGRAM] A surprising finish. 36. Kf3 walks into a discovered check, while after 36. Kf5 Rg4!, the threat of ...Be4 mate wins material for Black.

LivBlockade: The game A Kazarian vs E Limanovska, 2017 had a nearly identical finish.

LivBlockade: This line was repeated in Le Thao Nguyen Pham vs A Zatonskih, 2012 when Black tried 15...Qb5, also without success.

LivBlockade: Anna was not the first to fall into this trap. Ngoc Truongson Nguyen vs Kanep, 2010 followed the same line until Black tried 15...Qc4 with a similar result.

LivBlockade: Hmmm... I thought the above was a good puzzle, but I suppose few people will click on this game. Short draws between players near the bottom of the standings don't get much attention.

LivBlockade: Black to move and win - 17 ... ? [DIAGRAM] Position after 17. Kb1 The engines give 17... Rxb2+, with one variation being 17... Rxb2+; 18. Kxb2 Qa3+; 19. Kb1 Ba6; 20. Bf1 Qxc3; 21. Rc1 Qxd2; 22. Qd1 Rb8+. In some other variations, Black is able to play ...Ba3 or ...Rf2 with ...
