   Nov-12-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Mendrys: <not not: they both stuck to their own half to get a draw. if it was football, there would be people booing. in chess they get cheers. rly?? go in enemy half ffs> But it is not football though, is it? Really? Just because you don't understand the game doesn't make it ...
   Nov-06-18 M Bezold vs D J Ledger, 2008 (replies)
Mendrys: Drats, I should have realized it was a queen sac. I saw 38. Rxg7+ Nxg7 39. Qf6 and figured white had an easy win which he probably does since the only way to prevent mate is either 39...Qa7 or 39...Qd7 where either way 40. Rxa2 is going to be played.
   Oct-26-18 Naiditsch vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
Mendrys: <Willber G> A common foil to a lot of my failed combinations is that my opponent is not obligated to recapture in many cases. I didn't see your line but playing it through it seems that instead of 37. Kxe1 he can play 37. Nf4 and keeps his queen. The knight will fall ...
   Oct-05-18 Caruana vs Mamedyarov, 2018 (replies)
Mendrys: A masterful game by Caruana. One that will be of use in many a chess book. Boring game indeed!
   Sep-30-18 Remlinger vs Shabalov, 1993
Mendrys: <goodevans:.....It seems to me white was doing OK until he chose to give up his last K-side pawn without a fight. Black's trio of K-side pawns ultimately won the day. <24.f5 gxf5> before <Nf3> would at least have weakened them."> Once black got his unopposed trio ...
   Sep-30-18 Caruana vs Kramnik, 2016 (replies)
Mendrys: It's also mate after 40...f6. 41. Rh8+ Kf7 42. Qxe7+ Rxe7 43. Nd6#
   Sep-29-18 Petrosian vs Balashov, 1974 (replies)
Mendrys: <stacase: I chose 25.Ng5 instead of 25.Rad1. Dunno, Black is on the run at this point.....Well anyway, I got the first three moves so I'm pretty happy for a Saturday> 25. Ng6 is really the stronger move so you did well to find it.
   Sep-18-18 L Shamkovich vs A Anguiano, 1978 (replies)
Mendrys: A computer's best move may be something like 17. Ne2 (+.20) as an example but 17. Bxh6! is the right "people" move to make. Finding a refutation that doesn't start with 15...gxh6 is difficult for almost any human and as best play by black leads to equality Bxh6! is certainly the
   Sep-15-18 Kasparov vs Anand, 1995 (replies)
Mendrys: <RookFile: As is well known, Morphy would not have a chance in today's day and age. He played the Evans Gambit. How romantic. Of course, such a weapon could never work today against today's modern GM's.> I almost fell for it and had a snappy comeback about Johnny Weissmuller. ...
   Sep-01-18 Averbakh vs Korchnoi, 1965 (replies)
Mendrys: Well then, it's not quite the same but I was able to get the following position as black this evening: [DIAGRAM] I had seen Rh1! coming for a few moves with this game sill fresh in my mind, my opponent obviously did not. It continued. 23...Rh1! 24. Bxh1 Qh7+ white resigns. Thanks ...
