   Sep-05-18 A Winding vs S Sorensen, 1874 (replies)
Pballa: Weird game, several inaccuracies. White's 16th move makes no sense (16. cxd4 is clearly winning), however Black's 15th move also makes no sense. Perhaps black meant to play 15. ..Rxg4 (which is logical) and made the wrong notation in correspondence? In turn, White realized the error ...

Pballa: I didn't see your comment until now, Mariano. Thank you!
   Apr-12-18 K Galia vs C Kottnauer, 1947
Pballa: <thejack>After 24. ..Rd3 25. Rc8+ Kh7 26. Qd3+ white is winning. 24. ..e4 blocks that diagonal.
   Jul-25-17 Otto vs Von Der Lasa, 1839 (replies)
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 ...
