   Jan-08-19 Short vs Judit Polgar, 2001 (replies)
Nerwal: I made a mistake while editing the lines, sorry. The isolated pawn comes in the main line after 8. ♕f2 d5 9. exd5 exd5 like in Hug vs Smyslov, 1973 .
   Jan-01-19 S Khademalsharieh vs A Bodnaruk, 2018
Nerwal: Black got tricked at the end of this important game, going back to the e file defence with 101... ♖e2 lost the game. Meanwhile Black had a Tarrasch defence with the rook at checking distance from the long side.
   Jan-01-19 D Drozdova vs Tan Zhongyi, 2018
Nerwal: The triangle method is supposed to be easier to handle. Well not for everybody and not at this time control.
   Dec-28-18 Kosteniuk vs V Gunina, 2018 (replies)
Nerwal: White was probably scared of 24. ♗d2 ♖xc3 25. ♕e1 ♕d6 threatening ♕g3+.
   Dec-25-18 Beliavsky vs Adams, 1992
Nerwal: The position after 15... f5 looks bad for Black, yet the engines give White a slight advantage at best. They're possibly wrong but it is not easy to prove; it also quite possible that the inclusion of f4 and f5 actually favours Black as the White pieces are not so well placed for ...
   Dec-20-18 Topalov vs Judit Polgar, 1993
Nerwal: <why not 25...ke5 > 26. ♕b4 wins for White.
   Dec-12-18 Wang Hao vs M Perunovic, 2016
Nerwal: A very nice game featuring two exchange sacrifices by Black; 13... ♘h5 is an interesting idea showing the modern Benoni is all about energetic play (Jobava played 13... ♖e8 twice and lost both times). 31... ♕c8 (and if 32. ♖ef1 then just 32... f6) is also a ...
   Dec-07-18 Smyslov vs Petrosian, 1971
Nerwal: 15... b5 is very strange (15... b6 or 15... ♗d7 look normal). Now it's easy to say it, because engines show that ♘e5-c4-d6 doesn't really improve White's position.
   Nov-21-18 G Tokhirjonova vs Ju Wenjun, 2018
Nerwal: Black played c5 at the wrong time (24... c5, or maybe 26... ♖e8 seem to be easier wins), then after the nasty move 27. g4! found herself in a tough spot. 27... ♕g5 is given as +3 or +4 for Black by engines but the resulting positions are very tricky and not easily at all ...
   Nov-20-18 Hindemburg Melao vs C A Martinez, 1999 (replies)
Nerwal: <Would 19...Kf8 and 20...Kg8 have held?> No as ♘xe6+ now comes with check and the ♘ jumps to c7 next winning a full rook.
