LivBlockade: Happy Birthday, LQL! For those who have not yet seen it, Le Quang Liem vs Kamsky, 2011 is a very nice game.
   Feb-23-15 FIDE Grand Prix Tbilisi (2015) (replies)
LivBlockade: <fgh> Here is one example of KNN vs. KP [DIAGRAM] Many are surprised that some of these positions (it depends on where the pawn is) can be won by force, when of course without the pawn it's a draw. The winning idea is to create a position which would be stalemate except ...

LivBlockade: Analysis position after 42...Nxa7; 43. Ne3 [DIAGRAM] Leinier said in the press conference that he didn't play Nxa7 because of Ne3, and the computers agree. After Ne3, White's threats include: a) Qd8+ followed by Qb6 attacking two pieces b) Nf5 (or Qd8+ followed by Nf5). Note ...

LivBlockade: <al wazir:> Good analysis. In your line, I think 34. Qd7+ is another way to pick up a rook in a few moves. [DIAGRAM] Black has to try 34...Kg8 (otherwise Qf5+ wins the c2 Rook) and then Qd5+ followed by either Qf5+ or Qd4+.
   Jan-16-15 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2015 (replies)
LivBlockade: In the position after 31. h5 [DIAGRAM] An important and beautiful variation is 31... g5; 32. Nxd5 Nxd5; 33. Qxd5 Ba3; 34. Qf5! Bxc1; 35. Rxh6 with a winning attack.
   Jan-11-15 Van Wely vs R Wojtaszek, 2015 (replies)
LivBlockade: 52...Qg4, with White in time trouble, may have been a bluff. [DIAGRAM] White has a fairly simple win after 53. Qxg4 followed by Kg2 and f3. One line would be 53. Qxg4 hxg4; 54. Kg2 Ke7; 55. f3 Kd6; 56. fxg4 Kxd5; 57. Kf3 Ke5; 58. Ke3 f5; 59. g5! wins.
   Dec-04-14 Carlsen vs G Guseinov, 2014 (replies)
LivBlockade: [DIAGRAM] This looks like it should be a routine draw. The easiest plan for Black seems to be ...Rh1 planning ...Rh6 - I know it's blitz, but shouldn't a 2600 player be able to draw this in his sleep? Why bother trying to hold on to the b-pawn?
   Oct-02-14 L Dominguez vs Kasimdzhanov, 2014
LivBlockade: Position after 25...Rc8?? [DIAGRAM] White missed 26. Ne7+ winning material. The point is that after 26...Rxe7; 27. Bxe7 Qxe7 White has 28. Qxd4! Both players missed this possibility in mild time pressure.
   Aug-18-14 B Beeke vs B Bok, 2014
LivBlockade: White seemed to be SO close to earning a draw against the new GM. In the position after 53...Kh4 [DIAGRAM] maybe White should just play 54. Nf5+ followed by Nxg3 and a3. It's hard to imagine how he'd lose.
   Jul-18-14 Kramnik vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
LivBlockade: Can someone clarify the time control, the current clock times and when the game began? I know it says 40/2 above, but it doesn't seem to add up.
