   Nov-09-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Olsonist: Drawn like a portrait in invisible ink.
   Oct-05-18 43rd Chess Olympiad (2018) (replies)
Olsonist: Naka should have been mopping up on board 3. He drew against 2642, 2711, 2692, 2382 !, 2579, 2721, 2712 and lost against 2612. I'm a Naka fan but I'm a disappointed Naka fan. The Russians had an easy draw from their Swiss gambit. But hats off to the Chinese.
   Aug-20-18 F Olafsson vs Unzicker, 1970 (replies)
Olsonist: Black is all bottled up. So Rxf6 kind of begs itself. I had a little trouble finding Qxh6 but it is certainly within the logic of the position. Black is bottled up and Qxh6 maintains that grip. Then the h pawn advances and it's mate.
   Aug-17-18 Gleizerov vs Krasenkow, 2016 (replies)
Olsonist: As Queen sacs go, that is a beautiful puzzle.
   Aug-06-18 K Rohonyan vs A L'Ami, 2008 (replies)
Olsonist: Looked at it last night and gave it a rest. Saw it this morning. The rook screamed to be sac'd and it was fill in the details from there. I love Wednesdays. That and I truly appreciate Daniel Freeman for the enjoyment he has afforded me.

Olsonist: Thank you, Daniel, for the many puzzles and games and comments. I usually get Mondays, often Tuesdays, occasionally Wednesdays, rarely Thursdays and Friday, Saturday and Sunday only if they were misfiled. But I appreciated your work seven days a week.
   Jul-31-18 Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
Olsonist: 38...Nxd5+ seems to prolong the game although time control may have factored in.
   Jul-26-18 Nick de Firmian
Olsonist: Played him in high school. Got crushed.
   Jul-22-18 Carlsen vs Navara, 2018 (replies)
Olsonist: <is the end position really lost though?> The end position is not merely lost, it is really really lost.
   Jun-30-18 Yifan Hou vs Ju Wenjun, 2017 (replies)
Olsonist: Yes, Nxa2 after 36. Re2 is even a little more brutal.
