   Jun-09-19 Timman vs Short, 1993
 
Plaskett: Played an ending very similar to this in a last round yesterday and mentioned this Timman-Short ending to my opponent after he resigned. I shouldn┤t have won it, though.
 
   May-31-19 Tal vs Karpov, 1973 (replies)
 
Plaskett: Indeed. Two moves past the time control and after the wholly natural and obvious 42 a7 Karpov could have resigned. A tad fishy, don┤t you think?
 
   May-30-19 Gulko vs Nisipeanu, 1998
 
Plaskett: By the way, I tried hard to impress upon Jonathan Speelman┤s second, Jonathan Tisdall, to try my gambit of 6 Nc3! Vs Timman in the final game of their 1989 Candidates Semi-Final match. Tis┤ listened to my spiel down the phone but said they were grateful but Suba had some ideas in ...
 
   May-30-19 Bareev vs Nisipeanu, 1998 (replies)
 
Plaskett: The kind of game which revs chess up a bit. In similar vein, check out Shirov┤s victory Vs Short in their Las Vegas World Championship qualifier of the late 1990s when he was white against Short┤s French.
 
   May-11-19 Petrosian vs Sax, 1979 (replies)
 
Plaskett: Deeply impressive. BUT, if you want to see black put white under extreme pressure in the same ending, then check out Webb Vs Matulovic, Birmingham 1975.
 
   May-04-19 Carlsen vs Anand, 2019
 
Plaskett: This ending can be tricky, see, e.g. Miles Vs Korchnoi. last round of Hastings 1976.
 
   May-04-19 Carlsen vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2019
 
Plaskett: ┐Que?
 
   May-04-19 Adams vs D Coleman, 1989
 
Plaskett: I played it a decade or so later in the Isle of Man. After I threw away the British Championship in Plymouth when losing with white to Michael Adams when I was clear leader with two rounds to go. In my opinion 6 Ng5 is a load of cobblers, and Adams (and I) were both bloody lucky to
 
   May-04-19 G Meier vs Carlsen, 2019
 
Plaskett: For the most curious kind of mirror image of Carlsen┤s 34...Nc5 - even if only that splayed across the refractive surface of a distortion at some fairground attraction - check out Gdanski-ASrkell.
 
   Apr-19-19 Plaskett vs K Bischoff, 2001 (replies)
 
Plaskett: I am humbly appreciative of your interest in my manky efforts, gentlemen.
