   Nov-13-17 Portisch vs M Damjanovic, 1968 (replies)
 
ThumbTack: 35... Bd8 would have saved the game, but after 35...Nf6, Black is in bad shape.
 
   Jul-06-14 Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
 
ThumbTack: This might be beating a dead horse, although in my quick review of earlier comments, I didn't find one saying this. The big mistake that I saw is 30.g7 instead of 30.gxf7+ followed by 31.Nh5. White then has a tremendous advantage. However, as many have pointed out before (but ...

ThumbTack: <Al Wazir> I got the 25.Qxg6 and I too was surprised by the Nf4, but as you said, it really didn't change anything. Once Black's position is all fragmented the White rooks will rule the day.
 
   Jun-20-14 P Nikolic vs N Grandelius, 2013 (replies)
 
ThumbTack: I do not understand why so often I find the easy ones difficult and the difficult ones easy. In any case, 14.Qxe5 seemed fairly obvious to me. Of course, it doesn't end the game immediately, but it does give a clear winning advantage.
 
   May-22-14 T Petenyi vs Bacrot, 2014 (replies)
 
ThumbTack: <offramp> 50.Kg3 is a decent possibility. White still isn't in good shape, but has some fight left.
 
   May-22-14 Adler vs Maroczy, 1896 (replies)
 
ThumbTack: AS the debut of the Budapest, it is certainly impressive. And it certainly demonstrates that, if you underestimate Black's chances, you can get into serious trouble.
 
   May-21-14 Tal vs J Flesch, 1981 (replies)
 
ThumbTack: The position was even before 25..Rac8. How quickly it fell apart after that move! 25..Bxa2 looks to be a much better choice.
 
   May-21-14 E Magerramov vs V Malaniuk, 1989 (replies)
 
ThumbTack: 18.Rxd4 is fairly obvious, but I didn't see anything great after 18..Bxd4. Obviously 18..Qxd4 loses immediately. After 18..Bxd4 19.Rd1 Bxf2+ 20.Kxf2 e3+ 21.Kxe3 Qe8+ 22.Qxe8+ Rxe8+, Black has a lousy position in which he will almost surely lose, but a straight count of pieces and ...
 
   May-20-14 D van Foreest vs C Messemaker, 1884 (replies)
 
ThumbTack: After 41..Rxe2 42.Q-f4 Rxh2 43. Qxg4 Rxh1+, White still loses, but gets to put up more of a fight.
 
   May-18-14 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
 
ThumbTack: <RandomVisitor> After 11.Nb3, it looks to me as though 11..a5 is very strong for Black, despite Znosko-Borovsky's comments about White's advantage in space and development. Black can set his Bishops up on the c5-g1 and a6-f1 diagonals, controlling the space behind the pawns ...
