   Oct-17-17 Zsofia Polgar vs S Kamberi, 1996 (replies)
ajk68: 21...f6? is a disastrous move. Black was already in poor shape, but this created the lethal light square weakness around the king. Polgar's reply was not the best (or even one of the top three). 1) +1.31 (28 ply) 21...exd4 22.cxd4 Ne7 23.Bb3 c5 24.bxc5 dxc5 25.Ne5 Bxe5 26.fxe5 c4 ...
   Oct-16-17 E Najer vs Mamedyarov, 2017
ajk68: To complete the story a bit, here is what Stockfish thinks at 24 ply before making the move, and then what it thinks at 41 ply. 1) -0.20 (24 ply) 42...Rc8 43.Rf3 Bd4 44.Bb1 Rc5 45.Rfd3 Bb2 46.Ba2 b6 47.Kf3 b5 48.R1d2 Bc1 49.Rd1 d4 50.Rxd4 Rxd4 51.Rxd4 Rc3+ 52.Ke2 Rxg3 53.b4+ Ke7 ...
   Oct-14-17 Kamsky vs M Kazhgaleyev, 2016 (replies)
ajk68: <Dionysius1: ...I wonder whether Kamsky and the top players actually just see that from some sort of freakish pattern recognition> I'm inclined to think they see light/dark squared weaknesses much like a club player sees a hanging piece: it's completely obvious. A lot of the ...
   Oct-09-17 K Tjolsen vs S Marder, 2010 (replies)
ajk68: 24...Kc8?? Correct was Bb2 with equality...according to silicon.
   Oct-04-17 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
ajk68: Caruana had four significant mistakes and one full-out blunder: 22. Bc2? 25. Qb2? 26. Kd2? 29. Bf5? 35. Qe3??
   Oct-03-17 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
ajk68: <I'd love to see an arbiter say in that situation you cannot play 19.Ke2 here as that will be a draw and that is against the no draws till 30 move rule. "You will have to play something else." > I don't think a 30-move rule would force him to play something else. It would just ...
   Sep-29-17 S Bogner vs J P Wallace, 2017
ajk68: 1) -0.52 (35 ply) 29...Rxe5 30.Nxe5 Qxe5 31.Rbd1 Rb8 32.Rxd6 cxd6 33.Rxe4 Qxb5 34.Kh2 Re8 35.Rf4 Qe5 36.g3 d5 37.Qd2 Rd8 38.Rd4 Rd7 39.Kg2 g6 40.Qd3 Kg7 41.Kf1 Rd8 42.Kg2 Qd6 43.Qe3 Qc6 44.Qf4 Rd7 45.Qd2 Qe6 46.Qd3 Kg8 47.Qc3 Kh7 48.h4
   Sep-29-17 Carlsen vs V S Gujrathi, 2017 (replies)
ajk68: I am perplexed at what Carlsen was trying to accomplish here. Ideas?
   Sep-26-17 Kasimdzhanov vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
ajk68: I was actually surprised how Carlsen ceded so much space in the opening. 26. dxc6 seems like a strategic mistake. The computer gives it a slightly inferior rating, but it gave Carlsen the space he needed.
   Sep-26-17 Bogoljubov vs Alekhine, 1922 (replies)
ajk68: I would to see an endgame with a fourth queen sac in it. It could probably be crafted, but would also be completely unnecessary.
