   Apr-24-17 A Kashlinskaya vs A Galliamova, 2017
 
Nerwal: The over optimistic 19. exf5 (opening all the lines for Black) is nicely punished by the already decisive sacrifice 19... ♘xb4.
 
   Apr-24-17 B Khotenashvili vs V Golubenko, 2017
 
Nerwal: The bishop pair and the ability to create an outside passed pawn is enough to create very serious winning chances in such endgames. Curiously, the opposite-colored bishop endgame seems to be winning with the pawn at b2 and the bishop at c1, but drawn with the pawn at b3 and the ...
 
   Apr-21-17 Yifan Hou vs M Bluebaum, 2017
 
Nerwal: <What if black plays 16..f4?> 16... g4 17. ♗d4 gxf3 18. gxf3 and White wins back a piece.
 
   Apr-20-17 E Steiner vs Tartakower, 1929
 
Nerwal: 21. ♘xd5 is probably stronger but is hard to calculate (although intuitively this feels right) : 21... ♘e4 22. e6!!; 21... ♘c6 22. ♘xb4 ♕xd4+ 23. ♔h1 ♕xe5 24. ♘d5!. All in all White's play was not a bad practical choice.
 
   Apr-19-17 I Berzina vs N Pogonina, 2017
 
Nerwal: 42... c5 looks like a perfectly normal, academic move, and very logical since it prepares the winning ♕d3, and turns out to be almost the worst move of the position, since anything reasonable wins but this, even 42... b4 and the immediate 42... ♕d3.
 
   Apr-19-17 B Khotenashvili vs M Muzychuk, 2017
 
Nerwal: An interesting game where White was only one move away from an important win : 34. ♖d3 is immediately decisive.
 
   Apr-19-17 Yifan Hou vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2005
 
Nerwal: <Was Max a world-class player back in 2005 when he was 14?> Not yet, that's the year he got the GM title.
 
   Apr-16-17 Las Palmas Interzonal (1982)
 
Nerwal: <Any other examples of strong players unexpectedly coming last? Shirov at Dos Hermanas 1995 is the only one that immediately comes to mind.> Shirov has a good record in finishing last in tournaments, like at Dortmund 1998 when he was at the peak of his career.
 
   Apr-16-17 Yifan Hou vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
 
Nerwal: <what's the finishing line?> After some checks ♖1e3 will be decisive.
 
   Apr-12-17 Antoaneta Stefanova (replies)
 
Nerwal: <She is listed as playing for the European Chess Union instead of for Bulgaria at the European Women's Championship. Did she have a falling out with Danielov?> The Bulgarian Chess Federation has been in huge trouble with both FIDE and ECU since last year. Apparently BCF is ...
