   Apr-29-19 Tartakower vs J Mieses, 1925
alshatranji: 15. Qe5 is possible too. More flashy, though admittedly less devastating.
   Mar-12-19 D C Cadelago vs S Decuadro, 2009 (replies)
alshatranji: Easy shouldn't be the same as dull.
   Jan-25-19 Yifan Hou vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
alshatranji: I know the guidelines somewhere say you should choose the best move no matter what. But this is too much. Actually, this is one of the few cases where finding the move OTB would be easier than in the puzzle.
   Dec-18-18 D Harika vs S Cua, 2008 (replies)
alshatranji: Dionysius1: Hi <al wazir>. 12...♘xc5 is to take the sting out of 13. ♕h5. Now 13...♗xf5 14. ♘xf5 ♘e6 Black can simply play 12. Kg8.
   Dec-09-18 P H Nielsen vs V Chuchelov, 2003 (replies)
alshatranji: Shouldn’t Black have played 24. Qxf7, and saved himself the later trouble?
   Dec-02-18 E Jimenez Zerquera vs Hort, 1963
alshatranji: <You wouldn't guess that White was just an IM from looking at this game> Hort too was an IM then, and a new one that.
   Nov-30-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
alshatranji: As for the supposed anti-draw bias being American, it's frankly part of the anti-American bias you sometimes find online. I'm not American. I love soccer. I don't understand baseball, and I don't care for basketball or hokey. Yet, I don't like the way this match ended. It's not ...
   Nov-25-18 Nikolaiczuk vs Smyslov, 1986
alshatranji: Pure speculation: Niko touched the d pawn and had to move it. Nothing to support this theory, but it makes more sense than assuming he just decided to play d4 after d3.
   Nov-16-18 Aronian vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
alshatranji: No offense to anyone, but this pun is rather lame. It just repeats the name, and where is the "car"jacking? It's not like Aronian wwon with a counterattack or something? He was better the whole game.
   Aug-18-18 I Radulov vs Quinteros, 1973
alshatranji: Yes, I saw bxf5.
