   Aug-11-10 Z Gofshtein vs A G Ashton, 2006 (replies)
 
aazqua: Pretty obvious but I guess that's Wednesday. Even if the queen had a more convenient square bf5 followed by b6 and ne4 covers every square.
 
   Jul-15-10 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2008 (replies)
 
aazqua: 15 d5 is absolutely baffling. It allows black to correct his pawns and would seem to leave him two pawns up if a little behind in development. Very unclear why Aronian doesn't just play ed5 and get on with castling instead of hopping about with his knight.
 
   Jun-15-10 The Baron vs Redqueen, 2010
 
aazqua: Ouch.
 
   May-22-10 I Krush vs Lenderman, 2010 (replies)
 
aazqua: Horrible late middle and endgame play by black. Just astonishingly bad.
 
   May-12-10 Gelfand vs Kramnik, 1996 (replies)
 
aazqua: Great principled game by Kramnik. In fact, I'd say this is one of the most instructional games I've seen. The end is flashy of course, but it's the late opening and middlegame where Kramnik really establishes his advantage. Beautiful play.
 
   Mar-06-10 Anand vs Kramnik, 2010 (replies)
 
aazqua: Kramnik and Anand will both be viewed by history as very strong players who bridged the Kasparov and Carlsen eras. No one will confuse the difference in level between the first two and the second two.
 
   Feb-20-10 Carlsen vs Topalov, 2009
 
aazqua: Incredible that Topa managed to lose this endgame although it's far more incredible that they can play this sort of game blindfold.
 
   Feb-20-10 Jakovenko vs Carlsen, 2009
 
aazqua: This seems more like a loss by Jako under relentless pressure as opposed to a win by Carlsen. There's a number of moves at the end that had me scratching my head - stranding pawns on bad squares, etc.
 
   Feb-20-10 Carlsen vs Kramnik, 2009 (replies)
 
aazqua: I like this comment. This game is just an incredible example of someone making incremental improvements throughout to reach a dominant position. There's no 'gotcha' move but in totality it's a very powerful composition, and to compose it against a master positional player like ...

aazqua: FOr the ending how about qc5+ e5 leaving white with no moves. qe7+ is met with qf6+ q*q k*q and the pawn promotes. if h6+ first than k*p and then the same sequence if q*p except that now white just picks up the extra pawns with his king and promotes at his leisure.
