   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.
   Jan-21-17 A Backlund vs J van Foreest, 2016 (replies)
NBZ: Didn't get this at all: I tried to combine Nxf3 and Ng3+ without success, and ended up with Qh6 threatening Ng3+. By the way the final position is rather interesting. After say 51. Ke2, it is tempting for Black to play 51. ... f5 and threaten stuff like Rb2+ Kd3 Rd2+. [DIAGRAM] However ...
   Jan-19-17 Caruana vs Radjabov, 2016 (replies)
NBZ: Let's see - e6! A] Bxe6 Rxg7 Qxg7 Rxh7+ Qxh7 Nxh7+ Kxh7 Qe4+ winning the bishop and the game. Maybe there is a better line here instead of Rxh7+ but this is definitely winning. B] Qxe6 Ne8! and there is no good defence to Qxg7#.
   Jan-17-17 P Rout vs M Al Sayed, 2016 (replies)
NBZ: <dfcx> Thinking of the h7 rook as a pawn seems to have worked out as a great way to find the mating pattern!
   Jan-13-17 Karjakin vs Svidler, 2015
NBZ: <OhioChessFan: I missed this one. Looking at it, I don't like 86..Ba4 at all. Kc2 might be worth a look.> 86. ... Kc2 is a very interesting suggestion, and the win does not look straightforward for White. One line might go: 86. ... Kc2 87. Kg5 Ba4 88. Be3 (forced, since b3-b2 is ...
   Jan-11-17 D Fridman vs S Petrosian, 2015 (replies)
NBZ: Black's c3 rook is hanging: the idea is 19. Rxc3? Nxe4 20. Qe1 Bxc3 21. Qxe4 and Black has won back the pawn and is doing well. But White can play 19. Bxg7! (intermezzo) and now Black is in trouble. If 19. ... Kxg7 20. Qxc3 White is a whole rook up, so Black has to play 19. ... Rxc1 ...
   Jan-07-17 V Minko vs E A Levin, 2012
NBZ: <DiceToThat>: I think so! After looking at a few lines I am convinced it is a draw. 57. Rxd3 Qxd3 58. Qe6+ [DIAGRAM] (A) Now if Black's king stays on the back rank, White keeps checking on e6 and f6. For example, 58. ... Kf8 59. Qf6+ Ke8 60. Qe6+ Kf8 61. Qf6+ Kg8 62. Qe6+ Kh8 63.
   Jan-07-17 Bisguier vs A Matanovic, 1961 (replies)
NBZ: I see that I mucked up the obvious line, and found a way to delay the mate by 4 moves. At least it's still well within the 50 moves rule :)
