   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.

NBZ: <ChessHigherCat> I think <Yuridmi> meant 60. ... Bxa7!
   Jul-12-17 D Mastrovasilis vs A Volokitin, 2017 (replies)
NBZ: Shame - I looked at Rxe6+ fxe6 Qxe6+ but couldn't figure out what to do after Be7 Rb8+ Rd8. In hindsight, the queen on a2 is hanging! Spent much effort trying to make 20. Rb8+ Bd8 21. Rxd8+ work: one cute line is 21. ... Bxd8 22. Qa8+ Ke7 (Kc7 Bf4+ wins) 23. Bg5+? (simply Qxh8 is okay ...
   Jul-11-17 D Anic vs Degraeve, 1997 (replies)
NBZ: Unfortunately I missed e6+ but did find a much slower and more cumbersome way to mate the black king: Qh5 Qxc4 Rh8+ Kg7 Qh6+ Kf7 Qf6+ Ke8 Rxf8+ Kd7 Qd6#
   Jul-08-17 A Onishko vs M Leonov, 2002
NBZ: I did like the cunning 10. Rg1 hoping for 10. ... Bxh2?? 11. Rh1! with an open file.
   Jul-07-17 Stellwagen vs Yusupov, 2007 (replies)
NBZ: One interesting sideline: after 26. Nxg7 Be5?! the natural 27. Bxe5 Nxe5 does not seem to be quite as clean for White, for example 28. Rxe5 Rxg7 29. Rxe4 and White may be two pawns up but there is still a lot to be done. But 26. Nxg7 Be5 27. Rxe5! wins easily for White.

NBZ: Nice find. Remarkable ending.
   Jul-05-17 F Vallejo Pons vs J Sprenger, 2007
NBZ: Yeah I am wondering where Black went wrong. 14. ... Nh7 loses a pawn as 16. Qg4 threatens both e6 and h6. But 14. ... Kh7 15. Nh5 is a strong attack: for example 15. ... Nxh5 16. Qxh5 and g4-g5 is hard to stop. This tells me that maybe we have to go further back to the weakening move ...
   Jun-30-17 Y Krupenski vs Gelfand, 2016 (replies)
NBZ: gxh5 Rxh4 and now I want to make use of the g6 square (which looks very ripe) and the back rank (which looks very barren). Aha: f6! Bxf6 Re8+ Kh7 Qg6+! fxg6 Bg8+ wins.
   Jun-29-17 J J Carleton vs P Kent, 2007
NBZ: Interesting how much the "natural" (to me) human evaluation after 19. ... exd4 (Black is better) differs from the computer evaluation (Black is practically winning). Having said that, Black did not play especially well afterwards. He never managed to get ...c5 in (and it did not look ...
