   Jul-25-17 Otto vs Von Der Lasa, 1839
Pballa: [DIAGRAM] I get the feeling white wasn't enjoying his 2 pawn edge here.
   Jun-27-17 Korchnoi vs Simagin, 1960 (replies)
Pballa: <Moszkowski012273>23. Nd2 g3 24. fxg3 Qxe3+
   Apr-19-17 E Bone vs L Dubeck, 1971 (replies)
Pballa: I'm nitpicking here, but black missed a cleaner finish. 19. ..hxg5++ 20. Kxg5 Qa5+ 21. Kf4 e5+ 22. Bxe5 (22. Ke3 Ng4#) dxe5+ 23. Kg5 Qd8#.
   Apr-05-17 T Hillarp Persson vs H Grooten, 2007 (replies)
Pballa: White's 22nd move was a clear error. Black is toast after 22. Bc4. That said, black's 22nd move was a very nice find. White still holds an edge with correct play, but it's not easy to find. A better puzzle would be white's 27th move. Finding 27. Bxe6+ followed by 28. Rxd6+ is more ...
   Mar-20-17 Grischuk vs R Wojtaszek, 2016
Pballa: White missed a much cleaner finish with 67. Bh6+ Kh7 68. Bf8#
   Mar-15-17 G Aradhya vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Pballa: How did black win? Did white run out of time?
   Mar-15-17 A Lastin vs V Milov, 2003
Pballa: <I think Milov had lucky.43 Nxg7 was good for white.> 43. Rxg7! is far better and white is clearly won after that move. Play could follow 43. Rxg7+ Nxg7 44. Nf6+ Kf7 45. Ng5+ Kxf6 46. Qxf8+ Ke5 47. Bc3+! Kxd5 (if 47. ..Qxc3 48. Qxg7+ and the black queen is lost) 48. Qa8+ Bc6 ...
   Sep-14-16 P J Sowray vs R Pert, 2005 (replies)
Pballa: <razetime> Qh2 loses the queen, however Qh3 followed by Qh1 is mate.
   Mar-22-16 Anand vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
Pballa: <Black could have tried 24 ... Qe1+, 25 Kh2 Ne2 threatening ... Qg1+ and Qh1#. How should White defend against the mate threat?> White plays Nh3 and black is lost.
   Nov-30-15 Koltanowski vs M Hofferbert, 1947 (replies)
Pballa: To be fair, black played like he was blindfolded too.
