   Jun-03-18 W So vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Severin: 16. ... Nxa3 is the kind of error Carlsen's opponents usually make. Small positional disadvantages that add up over the game. 22. ...e5 is kind of a clever trick to simplify the position, but not one a GM would fall for. Wesley doesn't have to take the pawn right away, and then it ...
   Apr-23-18 Carlsen vs R Wojtaszek, 2018 (replies)
Severin: 17. Nd5 is a very cool sac/computer line that can initiate a killing attack. 17. ... exd5 18. exd5 kf8 19. dxc6 if 18. ... Nd8 19. Bg4 Rb8 20. Qd3 Rh6 21. Bxg7 Rg6 22. f5 Rxg7 23. f6 Rxg4 24. Rxe7, and black loses the Queen. Really complicated and a lot of variations (altho white
   Mar-26-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
Severin: Wow, one more round and 3 guys are still fighting for first. Definitely the most exciting tournament in a while. Can't see anyone beating Magnus, but I definitely think Caruana deserves the shot the most. Karjakin was the one I wanted to win the least, so this is a good day.
   Mar-16-18 Caruana vs Grischuk, 2018 (replies)
Severin: Magnus would never offer draw here. That's why he's the champion.
   Jan-27-18 G Jones vs Mamedyarov, 2018 (replies)
Severin: This proves Mamedyarov will go nowhere in the candidates, despite the increase in his rating. Champions don't just roll over when they could win a tournament.
   Jan-24-18 A Tate vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
Severin: Well that was something
   Dec-10-17 Carlsen vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
Severin: 25. Bxh6 wasn't all that hard, and especially should have been easy for Magnus. And then the whole sequence following 31. Nc6 ruined him. Really not his year. He keeps missing tactics and getting into lost positions.
   Dec-04-17 Aronian vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
Severin: Karjakin channeling the spirit of Anish Giri in this masterpiece
   Dec-03-17 W So vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
Severin: Wesley So will never become World Champion, because he has no courage or will to win. Sad to see his talent go to waste, but not shocking at all at this point
   Nov-30-17 M Sedayao vs G Boyd, 1975
Severin: 10. ... Qc5 looks nice, but has a few refutations. 11. Nc3 and white should be better. 11. d3 would also stop the critical ne4+ move, but still loses to Nc2+. Anyway, I checked with engine and apparently 10. ... Ne4+ followed by Bf5 is the only winning continuation for black.
