   Nov-24-17 A Riazantsev vs Gelfand, 2017 (replies)
Nerwal: White should probably trade a pair of rooks with 21. ♖ac1 while he can. The game saw all his pieces ending tangled up due to lack of squares for the rooks.
   Nov-20-17 J L Hammer vs Svidler, 2017
Nerwal: <If this works it looks like a masterly stratagem on the part of Svidler, a stratagem such as one which a GM may think of.> Or maybe he opened his database and saw this idea has been played for 30 years.
   Nov-16-17 Carlsen vs Jobava, 2017
Nerwal: <What's the idea behind 17. a4> To make ♗xd5 followed by ♘f6+ work by kicking the ♘b6 with a5.
   Nov-08-17 Grischuk vs Mamedyarov, 2017 (replies)
Nerwal: <The ending looks like it favors black, but is there a clear forcing line at the end? What’s best play?> The most forcing line is 36... ♖e2+ 37. ♔g3 g1=♕+ 38. ♕xg1 ♖g2+ 39. ♕xg2 fxg2 40. ♖xd5 g1=♕+ -+.
   Nov-07-17 E Polovnikova-Atalik vs A Muzychuk, 2017
Nerwal: This ♘c3 sacrifice looks familiar. Any famous game with it ?
   Nov-07-17 A Goryachkina vs M Gevorgyan, 2017
Nerwal: 56... ♕c6 pretty much sums up the game.
   Nov-07-17 Unzicker vs Fischer, 1960
Nerwal: Because after 17... ♗xf6 18. ♖d1 white has some pressure. 17... ♕xf6 is more solid.
   Nov-07-17 E Danielian vs Kosteniuk, 2017 (replies)
Nerwal: White missed all the opportunities of the position (for instance 21. h3 is almost winning, since 21... ♘e5 runs into tactics : 22. ♗xe5 ♖xe5 23. ♕c3 ♗d6 24. ♕xe5), and then got caught by surprise with the nasty move 28... ♘d2!
   Nov-07-17 B Khotenashvili vs D Di Benedetto, 2017
Nerwal: Surprisingly 43... ♘e6 loses by force as the ♖c4 stays trapped. Black's 40th move actually worsened her position and 43... ♗g7 draws due to the ♗h6 ressource.
   Nov-06-17 N Batsiashvili vs J Zawadzka, 2017
Nerwal: 64. ♔c1?? worst winning attempt ever (she must have missed 67... ♖d2, while 64. ♔e1 ♘f3+ drawing was not acceptable given the match situation).
