   Oct-18-19 Fine vs C H Alexander, 1937
NM JRousselle: It's not a terrible pawn sacrifice. After 21... Bd5, Black has fair compensation for the deficit. The real mistake is 22 Be5? This allows Black to equalize with Bf3.
   Sep-25-19 Euwe vs Udo Cawi, 1950 (replies)
NM JRousselle: 32 Be6 also works
   Aug-29-19 S Iermito vs U Eliseev, 2013
NM JRousselle: Trading queens on turn 22?? What was White thinking? I teach my students that the player with the safer king (clearly White here) does not want to trade queens.
   Aug-23-19 I S Turover vs Ed. Lasker, 1931 (replies)
NM JRousselle: Black might have done better to play 16... Ne4 with the idea of removing White's knight to accentuate the weakness of the dark squared bishop.
   Aug-13-19 Saemisch vs Reti, 1925 (replies)
NM JRousselle: The ending looks hopeless for White. After 31 c4, Black's best path forward may be Bc5+ followed by Ra3. This will ensure the passed a pawn get to a3. At this point, White will have too many problems to deal with--passed a pawn, isolated c pawn, isolated e pawn. The Black rook
   Aug-12-19 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1909 (replies)
NM JRousselle: Marshall had terrible records against Alekhine, Capablanca and Lasker (so did just about everyone else!). However, people forget how good Marshall really was. In this game for example, he plays near perfection. Compare his moves to Stockfish's 1st choices.
   Aug-12-19 B Magana vs M Kobler, 2014
NM JRousselle: Black missed 25... Bh3
   Aug-04-19 J Song vs E Hadet, 2013 (replies)
NM JRousselle: Black had the better game before the 46 Rde8 blunder. The obvious Re2 looks a lot better.
   Aug-01-19 Marshall vs Lasker, 1907 (replies)
NM JRousselle: The real story is that Marshall did not sufficiently grasp the significance of Ne4. This move removes a pair of minor pieces from each player, significantly reducing White's attacking chances. Marshall continued to play as if these pieces were still on the board.
   Jul-28-19 Epishin vs Y Dokhoian, 1986
NM JRousselle: I think White missed his chance at move 24. Qb1 looks suspect. Taking 3 times on e4 looks good for White.
