   Sep-17-17 F Zita vs Taimanov, 1950 (replies)
NBZ: <ChessHigherCat> It looks to me like after 19. Bf3 Nxe3 20. fxe3 Qxe3+ 21. Kg2 Qxf3+ 22. Kxf3 Re3+ 23. Kg2 Rce8 Black is a whole queen down for rather limited compensation. I would be very surprised if White isn't completely winning. For example: 24. Qd2 d4 25. Re1 is one safe way
   Sep-09-17 Nunn vs C W Pritchett, 1986 (replies)
NBZ: Okay so I think I have a forced line that looks pretty good. Let's start with: 1. Nf6+! gxf6 (not Qxf6 Rxe8#). 2. Rg4+ Kh8 (again forced, if Kf8 Qh6#) 3. Rg1! The threat is Qxh7+ and Rh4#. How does Black defend? He can try Bxf5 but Qxf5 Rb5 Qxh7+ still leads to mate. Black could ...
   Sep-06-17 R Gadjily vs M O'Cinneide, 1997 (replies)
NBZ: dxe6! Rxd3 Rxd3 Re8 (Rxd3 e7) exf7+ Kxf7 Rd7+ should win comfortably: the rook on the 7th rank is monstrous in this position, and White will be up two pawns in the rook ending, while the K+P ending is won for White.
   Sep-05-17 A Syrchikov vs V Dyakov, 2012
NBZ: A really pretty ending: 43. Nd4! and 44. d8=Q+!
   Sep-02-17 Tarrasch vs Romberg, 1893 (replies)
NBZ: <ChessHigherCat> 16. ... Kh5 17. Nf6+ Kg6! (not Kh4) and I don't see an easy way for White to win. I puzzled over 16. ... Kh5 for a long time - the game continuation is quite genius and I didn't see it at all. In the end I ended up with 17. Rf6, threatening Rh6#, and now: A] 17. ...

NBZ: <goodevans> That must be it. For my part, at least, I spent much time looking at Rxe6 before realizing that Re3 does it.
   Aug-01-17 Anand vs J Hickman, 2007
NBZ: <latebishop> That's fair, however after Kc7 Nxc8 Rf2 Ne7 Rf3 Nd5+ the knight gets back in the game and Black only has 1 pawn for the piece. Against Anand that's probably resignable (against me, not so much!).
   Jul-27-17 G Meins vs H Rau, 2016 (replies)
NBZ: Missed Nc4!
   Jul-21-17 J Perlis vs J Mieses, 1907 (replies)
NBZ: I rather liked the Rb1+ touch at the end. It doesn't change the material balance at all but ensures Black ends up with a rook on the 7th rank == zero counterplay for White.
   Jul-12-17 Benko vs Dzindzichashvili, 1991 (replies)
NBZ: <ChessHigherCat> I think <Yuridmi> meant 60. ... Bxa7!
