   Mar-27-17 Blatny vs Jansa, 1986 (replies)
NBZ: <saturn2>: Fair enough. I was looking for a way for white to prolong the struggle, but looks like there isn't a way out after Nxf2.
   Mar-26-17 N Vitiugov vs Sasikiran, 2015 (replies)
NBZ: I had 30. Ne6+ instead of Ne8+ but I think the result should be similar...nice combination by White.
   Mar-22-17 L G Tryggestad vs Jacob Frederiksen, 2015 (replies)
NBZ: I wonder if it was around move 27. The position looks close to equal there, but Black plays Rg8 and Rg7, which misplaces the rook and allows White to take control of the c-file. Instead 27. ... Rc8 (or Rd8) looks okay. 32. ... e5 also looks like a blunder (Black missed 33. Rc6 I think, ...
   Mar-20-17 J E Garcia vs T Nguyen, 2017 (replies)
NBZ: Indeed! And he has got his king on the correct corner, and just needs to shuttle his bishop back and forth to hold the draw. I wonder if Black simply ran out of time at this point.
   Mar-13-17 Geller vs D Losev, 1994 (replies)
NBZ: <PS: I'm not against engine generated lines, but I'm against engine generated lines that I cannot understand and/or are far more complicated than a trivial and stable one which will lead in the end to the same result.> There is no upvote option but this comment deserves one!
   Mar-03-17 I Cheparinov vs Navara, 2007 (replies)
NBZ: <RandomVisitor> 31. h4 is hard to find though, is it not? Even after Black's 30th move, with the position staring at you, it is not obvious why White should play it rather than the game move Bh7. To able to foresee 31. h4 on the 29th move, and as such play 29. ... Rxd2 instead of ...
   Feb-27-17 A Muzychuk vs M Tsiganova, 2007
NBZ: An instructive ending!
   Feb-20-17 I Varasdy vs Zsuzsa Polgar, 1983
NBZ: Right! When White calculated 29. Qxe3, his knight is on c5, his rook on c1 and his bishop on g5. In all the lines his rook takes on c5 and then on e5. So it is easy to miss that at the end of all of this, the black rook comes to c5.
   Feb-07-17 Taimanov vs Smyslov, 1967
NBZ: Remarkable how h7 wins two pieces with one pawn: if Nxh7 Bxe4 threatening mate leaves Black no choice but to lose the knight as well.
   Jan-22-17 Taimanov vs V Mikenas, 1965 (replies)
NBZ: Ah, 24. Nxc6 25. Rf3 26. Rxe6+ is such a clever sequence of moves. Missed it completely. I also wonder if Taimanov saw that far when playing Bxh6, the fact that White has 22. Qe3 is already good enough reason (I think) to play Bxh6 under match conditions.
