   Jul-20-18 I Nepomniachtchi vs Kramnik, 2018 (replies)
Mateo: This is the new Kramnik: sharp play. Kramnik plays more like Tal than like Kramnik.
   Jul-12-18 E G Sergeant vs Reshevsky, 1935
Mateo: With 28.Qe4, White begins to follow the obvious plan to defend his 'd' pawn. But this will be a complete failure. Instead White should have attacked on the Black King with h4-h5.
   Jul-11-18 Reshevsky vs E Tholfsen, 1934
Mateo: 36...fxg6?? is the losing move. He had to play 36...Qxb1+ 37.Bxb1 Bxa4.
   Jul-09-18 Dake vs Reshevsky, 1934
Mateo: 30.Nc2? loses a pawn. White had to find something else, if possible. 30.Ne6! could save him. 30...fxe6 31.Qxe6+. 30...Rd7 31.Bxb4! Qb5 32.Qc3! seems like a crazy saving line. However, very difficult to find it on the board.
   Jul-05-18 Reshevsky vs M Monticelli, 1934
Mateo: How to make a win out of a draw. The obvious 47...Kd7 attacking the Rook loses after 48.Rf4. The threat f3 wins as the Black King is too far away. On move 47, Monticelli had to play his King on the 6th rank.
   Jul-03-18 Reshevsky vs J Araiza Munoz, 1934
Mateo: Interesting game. The player from Mexico played a clever exchange sacrifice. His strong Knight on the 6th rank gave him good compensation as White could not make efficient use of his Rooks. But at some point Black lost his way. 27...d4? had to be a bad move as White was able to ...
   Jun-30-18 R E Martin vs Reshevsky, 1934
Mateo: Yes 37.g3? was too weakening. Black gets the hole at f3 for his Rook, the g3 pawn is a target and the King is in huge danger. The Canadian champion had to keep his pawn on g2.
   Jun-21-18 Bacrot vs Deepan Chakkravarthy J, 2016
Mateo: Interesting Rook ending. 48...Rg3? loses quickly. But if Black plays 45...Rf5+ it's hard to say if White can win.
   Jun-16-18 Bacrot vs O Zujev, 2016
Mateo: Tough fight. 61...Rxa7! was a draw. 62.Bxa7 Nxa7 63.c7 Kd6 64.c8Q Nxc8 65.Bxc8. White can't win this position.
   Jun-08-18 Spassky vs Tringov, 1955
Mateo: Gambling chess? In this one Spassky played a bit like Tal, winning a lost position in a complicated middle game.
