   Aug-15-17 Nakamura vs Kasparov, 2017 (replies)
ajk68: Commentary pointed out that Naka missed the win. A typical knight screening the pawn from the bishop would have led to promotion.
   Aug-10-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
ajk68: Carlsen is clearly washed up. I mean look at this tournament. He's a full half a point out of the lead!!! He's nowhere close to the other greats like Caruana, Nakamura and So!!! Seriously, I was looking at his live rating the other day and the distance from #1 to #2 was as big as the ...
   Aug-03-17 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
ajk68: 36...gxf5 doesn't appear correct. b4 was probably better.
   Jul-31-17 Fischer vs Berliner, 1962 (replies)
ajk68: <sachman19: ... He should have captured knight with pawn> No. This allows white to capture the rook with tempo. The attack becomes crushing. After black's obligatory move out of check, white can simultaneously transfer the f1 rook to the third rank while parrying the mating ...
   Jul-26-17 V Malakhov vs I Khairullin, 2007 (replies)
ajk68: The key move here is Kf6!
   Jul-17-17 Flohr vs Bogoljubov, 1931 (replies)
ajk68: <ajk68: 37. Bxf3 may not have lost the game, but feels like a positional mistake to me.> Running this through a computer I see it drastically changes the evaluation and does indeed lose the game.
   Jul-14-17 K Spraggett vs P Llaneza-Vega, 2007 (replies)
ajk68: I think the critical move in the calculation is Kh2. It's not a forcing move, but it seals the deal. Most likely black did not see a forcing continuation and overlooked the quiet move.
   Jul-13-17 Ponomariov vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
ajk68: 18. f4 makes no sense to me. Anybody have an idea why Ponomariov played this?
   Jul-07-17 Stellwagen vs Yusupov, 2007 (replies)
ajk68: That should have been 31...e3 (black's move, not white's). Sorry. <ChessHigherCat> I think your line is a move earlier (30)? By move 31, the bishop obstructs the attack. I finally have access to a computer. Stockfish 7 says that e3 is the most tenacious defense (+2.7 or so for ...
   Jul-06-17 A Riazantsev vs Harikrishna, 2017 (replies)
ajk68: White appears to play for the draw around move 56. A lot of wasted time letting black improve his position. At move 64 white seems to change tack trying to blow the position open - recklessly. Maybe white missed the follow up Qh4!
