   Sep-17-18 Aleksandr Karpatchev
Nerwal: [DIAGRAM] Karpatchev - H. Schuh 2002. White played 22. ♘xf7! and Black resigned seeing 22... ♔xf7 23. ♘g5+ ♔g8 24. ♘xh7! +- this second ♘ sac wrecks his castle for good.
   Sep-12-18 F Lazard vs A Gibaud, 1909
Nerwal: 20. ♖e7 starts a correct sacrificial attack, alas completely unecessary; the much simpler 20. ♗e7! wins easily without any investment.
   Sep-10-18 Spielmann vs Rubinstein, 1911 (replies)
Nerwal: Supposed to be a Spielmann masterpiece but actually a weakly played game by Rubinstein, showing that in 1911 understanding of dynamism was still in its infancy (Nunn chose to trash Karlsbad 1911 for good reason; level of play tremendously raised in the 20s). Yet much later, Le ...
   Sep-07-18 Schlechter vs Janowski, 1905 (replies)
Nerwal: The position after 18... b5 got a diagram in Le Lionnais' book on brillancy prizes. 19. e6 although marked '!!' didn't seem all that clear, and White's position looks so good there should be at least one forcing win. Probably the right path is 19. ♘xd5! ♗xd5 20. ...
   Aug-28-18 Macieja vs Karpov, 2003
Nerwal: After 37. ♖e1 Black can still play ♕c5 and on 38. ♕e3 (to prevent ♕d4-f4), 38... ♕b4 or 38... ♕a3. White made a bad positional mistake by weakening the dark squares around his king with 31. h3 in an opposite colored bishops scenario, and after that
   Aug-28-18 D Flores vs S Shankland, 2018
Nerwal: <why not 22.Ne7+ and black's qween is lost?> Black will then have more than enough material for the queen (♖+♗+2♙) and a very harmonious position with two good bishops. This is at least clearly better for Black.
   Aug-26-18 Stoltz vs Tartakower, 1931 (replies)
Nerwal: <What if 43...Rd4?> 43... ♖d4 44. ♕g6+.
   Aug-13-18 Schlechter vs O Bernstein, 1904
Nerwal: From the practical point of view 37. ♖d6 is almost as bad as the blunder 38. ♖xe6??, since it's not easy to find a constructive move thereafter. 37. ♕xb5, 37. ♕c6 and 37. ♕c8 were all much easier to handle.
   Aug-03-18 Carlsen vs Ivanchuk, 2013 (replies)
Nerwal: <I'm just an amateur, but I wonder why Magnus played c5 instead of Rb5 on move 70. I would think the latter move might still offer some drawing chances. Thoughts?> What's the idea behind 70. ♖b5 ? Taking a5 is almost certainly too slow.
   Jul-29-18 Svidler vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2018 (replies)
Nerwal: Seriously. It's modern, professional chess where GM study openings with seconds, engines and databases for most of their working time. 9. h4 was played by Murey more than 30 years ago. Svidler got the position after 10. h4 with the black pieces five years ago ( Jakovenko vs Svidler, ...
