   Nov-15-18 Caruana vs Aronian, 2014
Nerwal: <Can anyone explain what's wrong with 50...Nf8 ?> 51. ♖g5+ ♔h7 52. ♖g8 wins instantly.
   Nov-15-18 Z Abdumalik vs M Muzychuk, 2018
Nerwal: It's quite strange how the freeing move 26... e5 completely destroys Black's position, and worse it can't be repaired at all. In some lines White can make several pass moves in a row and still be easily winning.
   Nov-14-18 Women's World Championship KO (2018) (replies)
Nerwal: <Don't know why Hou is called 'GM-elect' in this article, since according to her GM title application sent to FIDE back in 2008,> Apparently she would have had another norm having won a women tournament because Zhao Xue's GM application was already pending at the time. All this
   Nov-06-18 J Houska vs Gelfand, 2018 (replies)
Nerwal: <I thought that Gelfand would have played ...Rh6....(?)> Given that even the queen sacrifice 27. ♕xh6 ♗xh6 28. ♗xh6 does not look all that clear, it's not surprising Gelfand decided to play something else to keep the pressure.
   Nov-05-18 Y Shulman vs S Conquest, 2009 (replies)
Nerwal: <32. ... R8c7 What happens after this?> 33. ♕b8+ ♖c8 34. ♕e5 for instance. 33. ♖xc7 is just as good.
   Nov-01-18 Sutovsky vs L Pantsulaia, 2008
Nerwal: <What happens after 36....Bf2 for black> It seems 36... ♗f2 is not as good as 36... ♗c7 because after 37. g4 ♔e7 38. ♘c3 e3 39. ♔c2 ♔f6 40. ♘e4+ ♔e5 41. ♔d3 Black doesn't have 41... e2 as with 36... ♗c7 because the ...
   Oct-26-18 Karpov vs Anand, 1994
Nerwal: <What if 39. Nxh3 instead of Bxc7?> This is not a good move because 38... ♘xh3 doesn't create any threat while White already has a threat of his own - an immediate win with 39. ♖d8.
   Oct-26-18 N Batsiashvili vs J Xiong, 2018
Nerwal: White completely self destructed with 26. d6 and 27. ♘f5 when facing an already quite unpleasant situation. Those 4. e3 Tarrasch/QGA positions are not so easy to handle as White.
   Oct-24-18 S Fenil vs Kramnik, 2018 (replies)
Nerwal: <Interesting novelty, Kramnik playing KID...> Doesn't seem so but it's hardly a new opening in Kramnik's repertoire. Kasparov vs Kramnik, 1996 Piket vs Kramnik, 1997 J Gustafsson vs Kramnik, 2012
   Oct-23-18 Kasparov vs Salov, 1992
Nerwal: It's almost a miracle Black holds; for instance 46. ♖c4 ♘d6 47. ♖xb4 axb4 48. ♗xh7 seems to be a fortress two pawns down.
