   Nov-16-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
 
Morten: Great fighting chess so far. The players understand a lot more than me about what is going on and may read another meaning into the four games so far. But to me it seems that these games have not given Karjakin any clue what he can do to win the match. Carlsen on the other hand knows
 
   May-31-16 B Hammar vs E Jonsson, 2014 (replies)
 
Morten: Subtle queen sacrifice by White and Black fell into the trap. What happened after that is beyond me.
 
   Oct-27-15 Fine vs Alekhine, 1938
 
Morten: Alekhine, like Steinitz, did sometimes play on in dead lost positions. Will to fight, unwillingness to admit defeat and belief in himself. It did pay off from time to time: Alekhine vs E Andersen, 1935
 
   Jun-01-15 J Lammi vs L Andonovski, 2011 (replies)
 
Morten: Al Wazir, Working without a board here. But in you alternative line: 39. Nf5 Qxe5 40. Ne7+ Kh8 41. Qxe5 Bxe5 42. Nxd5, does Black not continue with 42-, Bd4 pinning the rook?
 
   Feb-05-15 Motylev vs S Azarov, 2009 (replies)
 
Morten: Did not get this - one contributing factor being that I was looking for "black to move". - Rxh3+ works nicely if white takes, but not if white just plays Kg1.
 
   Nov-16-14 L Ogaard vs J D Tisdall, 1987 (replies)
 
Morten: Patzer 2, Just out of curiosity: Why is 32 -,Nxd5 a sham sacrifice? Seems to me it is a genuine sacrifice (material is not immediately regained) but a winning one.
 
   Nov-12-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
Morten: I think Sally cheated slightly on solving the 8 queen puzzle ... by putting only 7 Queens on the board ;-)
 
   Sep-07-14 Sinquefield Cup (2014) (replies)
 
Morten: "vkk: atleast when you look at karpovs games, you can figure out (atleast i think i can) what each move is trying to accomplish. looking at carlsens games, the large majority is because the computer said so." Are you saying that Carlsen has his moves in open play recommended to him ...
 
   Sep-01-14 M Willich vs P Fink, 2004 (replies)
 
Morten: Did not get this one! I wanted to play 28 Qxg5, hxg5 29 Bxc6 winning a piece with a completely won position since black cannot retake 29 - bxc6 due to the Arabian mate after 30 Rd8+ "Good thinking, Bond". But I missed the obvious.
 
   Jun-24-14 Z Nilsson vs Geller, 1954 (replies)
 
Morten: "M.Hassan: Material is dead equal" "agb2002: Black is one pawn ahead" Have I lost my ability to count or is Black two pawns up?? Not that it makes any difference to the solution. Very nice Tuesday with just enough twist.
