   Jan-22-19 Kramnik vs Ding Liren, 2019 (replies)
Mateo: 44...Qa6 defending the a4 pawn allows 45.Ne7!, a very nice move destroying Black's pawn structure on the King side. Big turn of events.
   Jan-22-19 S Shankland vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
Mateo: Very drawish endgame.
   Jan-22-19 Z von Balla vs Schlechter, 1912
Mateo: After 20...c4, Black had an edge. Soon after, Schlechter played 22...Bxd5?! giving up his Bishop pair. But Balla gave him a second chance to play for an advantage after 26.Bxc5+?! as Black takes control of the open file and invade with his Rook. However, after 34...gxf4?!, White ...
   Jan-17-19 Tarrasch vs Rubinstein, 1912
Mateo: Tense battle between these tw giants. Rubinstein had an edge in the middle game and at some point he missed a win. 40...Nd4 wins the exchange. 41.Rxd4 Bxd4 42.Nb5 Rb6. Maybe both players missed 42...Rb6! in zeitnot.
   Jan-16-19 I Nepomniachtchi vs R Rapport, 2019 (replies)
Mateo: Meanwhile, Carlsen scored his first win versus Van Foreest.
   Jan-16-19 Przepiorka vs Tarrasch, 1912
Mateo: A lucky win for Tarrasch. 23.Ne1 (instead of 23.Rxf6) wins. 23...Qxc1 (what else?) 24.Rxc1 Nxd6, White has a clear edge.
   Jan-16-19 Tarrasch vs Duras, 1912
Mateo: 17.Nxd5! was a nice sac winning a pawn. Thus, 15...a6? was wrong. Duras had to play 15...Qa5 which should hold.
   Jan-15-19 J Mieses vs Tarrasch, 1912
Mateo: Nice positional game from Tarrasch. I wonder if he annotated this one.
   Jan-15-19 Mamedyarov vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2019 (replies)
Mateo: They already played 15...d5 16. Nb3 Nh5 17. Nd4 Nf6 18. a3 Ne4 19. Qc1 dxc4 20. Bxc4.
   Jan-12-19 Ding Liren vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
Mateo: After 27...Rxf3, there should be a massive exchange and draw.
