   Nov-16-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Mateo: <BOSTER: Now black has the open <c> file.> This is why Carlsen has played 28.Rdc1.
   Nov-15-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Mateo: Imagine White plays 19.Bc3. Black probably answers 19...Kxc7. White is still a pawn up but Black has enough compensation. Why? Because the extra pawn is a backward pawn on the 'd' file. As long as White cannot play d4, his material advantage is purely theoretical.
   Nov-15-18 Maroczy vs Marshall, 1929 (replies)
Mateo: It seems that 24...a6? loses a pawn. 24...c6 should be more accurate. 25.b4 Nb7 26.Bc4 Rxb4 is quiet different. If 27.Rxe6 Rxe6 28.Rxe6, now Black can play 28...Na5. One can see the difference. It's possible to defend the c pawn meanwhile in the game Black loses this pawn.
   Nov-13-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Mateo: The song remains the same : draw. They should give them alcohol and cigarettes to bring the match to the oasis of a victory.
   Nov-10-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Mateo: I think Back will catch the d6 pawn. Although it should be a draw, Caruana could torture Carlsen for a long time without any risk.
   Nov-09-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Mateo: 21...Nf8!? allows 22.Nxf6.
   Nov-09-18 Euwe vs E Canal, 1929
Mateo: 25...Rxe7 26.Rxe7 Nd5 wins for Black. What Canal played (25...Raf8) loses. Turn of event...
   Nov-09-18 Capablanca vs G A Thomas, 1929
Mateo: I would probably quote 40.Rxe4!?. Maybe 40.Rxe4?! but not 40.Rxe4? Beacause I don't think White can lose. The whole point is that White will sacrifice his Rook for the passed pawn on the 'b' file. Then he will advance with his 4 connected pawns and his King meanwhile the Black King ...
   Nov-08-18 K Treybal vs Bogoljubov, 1929 (replies)
Mateo: 56.b4? is a move I hardly understand. Maybe Treybal was exhausted after a long and difficult defence.
   Nov-07-18 Spielmann vs Gruenfeld, 1929
Mateo: A typical game about dark squares strategy.
