   Feb-20-18 Nino Maisuradze
Nerwal: <Any piece of background information about it?>
   Feb-20-18 Fischer vs Smyslov, 1965 (replies)
Nerwal: <maybe...... even for these geniuses though, it was a slightly premature resign, no?!> No, this line is linear and clear, and there are other ways to win (see page 1).
   Feb-10-18 M Stolberg vs Smyslov, 1940 (replies)
Nerwal: 11. ♗d3? is a third-rate move. After the commital and risky 10. 0-0-0 White has to continue with 11. ♘e5.
   Feb-07-18 US Championship (1972) (replies)
Nerwal: De Fotis' fide rating at the time was 2425, 235th in the world. Of the players he finished ahead, only Lombardy, Bisguier and Mednis were rated higher than him.
   Feb-06-18 Nunn vs Van der Wiel, 1982
Nerwal: Long variation, wrong variation. Of all the possible ways to convert the advantage at move 28/29, Nunn chose one of the longest and weakest (as mentioned above after 35. ♕e5 ♖h5!? it's still not clear White wins). His play up to this point was excellent though. The ...
   Feb-03-18 Anderssen vs Steinitz, 1862
Nerwal: Anderssen's 13. gxf3!? is a very interesting and creative choice. However the positional 13. ♕xf3 is probably not worse. Steinitz did not defend well but the position was unpleasant and after 14... b5? already beyond repair. 21. ♘xe7? ♖b5!! is a devilish trap and ...
   Feb-02-18 Steinitz vs Pillsbury, 1895
Nerwal: A good chunk of this game is a maze and several mistakes are easily explainable (for instance 21... ♘e3! = is extremely complex, and the f3 or ♘g3+ winning sacs at move 15-16 are also tricky to calculate accurately) but the miss of the simple 13... ♖e8+ 14. ...
   Feb-01-18 Aronian vs S P Sethuraman, 2018
Nerwal: ♕d3-b5-a4 is not even new : Grischuk vs R Wojtaszek, 2016
   Jan-30-18 D Dubov vs J Moussard, 2018
Nerwal: It required good technique; it was not a great position for bishops.
   Jan-28-18 B Adhiban vs Kramnik, 2018 (replies)
Nerwal: Kramnik guessed he missed 37... ♖e7 cutting the king away from the queenside.
