   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 :)
 
   Jan-06-17 Eljanov vs Karjakin, 2015 (replies)
 
NBZ: <YouRang> <ventricule> I think ventricule must be referring to the line: 29. d4 Rxd4 30. Qc3 b6 31. b4 Rxe5 [DIAGRAM] A very interesting try. But I feel like White can play 32. Bxf6 here. [DIAGRAM] (1) 32. ... gxf6 33. fxe5 Rxc4 34. Qg3+ wins (2) 32. ... Rxc4 33. Qxe5 ...
 
   Jan-05-17 Uhlmann vs Kholmov, 1960 (replies)
 
NBZ: Presented as a puzzle, Qxd5 kind of jumps out: Nxd5 Rxf2 and for a small price in material, Black has the deadly threats of Nf3 or Bg2+. It's difficult to guard against both at the same time: if Nd4, Bg2+ wins the knight on d5. A little harder to foresee in advance that the ...d5 break ...
 
   Jan-03-17 Aronian vs Shirov, 2016
 
NBZ: Another idea is: after 63. ... Kh4 64. Bd3 Kg4 65. Be2 Qd5 66. Kf1 Qxf3 White can play the remarkable 67. Ke1!! [DIAGRAM] Black is forced to play 67. ... Qxe2+ 68. Kxe2 and now there is no possible way for Black to win this ending.
 
   Jan-01-17 Wei Yi vs L Bruzon Batista, 2015 (replies)
 
NBZ: Ah of course - in the diagram I posted, simply Re7+ Kh8 Qxf6+ wins. Black's other try is 22. Rxf7 Nf6 23. Qe6! Kh8, but now it seems simply 24. Bg5 wins.
 
   Dec-28-16 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
 
NBZ: <23.Rd3, a logical move, does look stronger for White, but I still see a game that's solidly in the draw range, lacking a way to force a black loss.> But Black has no winning try, whereas White can milk the position to death secure in the knowledge that the result can only be a ...
