   Oct-12-19 McShane vs Lu Shanglei, 2019 (replies)
areknames: This is a Closed Sicilian, not a King's Indian attack. The doubling of the rooks on the f file (rather than capturing the bishop) at the end is a touch sadistic but oh so very effective. Impressive performance by McShane.
   Oct-11-19 J Xiong vs B Adhiban, 2019 (replies)
areknames: 34...Qe4 is a lovely zwischenzug, sealing White's fate. I had trouble understanding Xiong's play here, his Knight's tour starting on d4-f5-e7-c6-a5-b3 and back to d4 seems a colossal waste of time.
   Oct-11-19 Van der Wiel vs Hort, 1981
areknames: Black resigns because 41.Qg7+ is murderous. As <Honza Cervenka> correctly points out Black could have won with 38...Rd8 and it is White's King that will find no shelter. Exciting game and what about those quadrupled pawns?
   Oct-11-19 V Gashimov vs Korchnoi, 2008 (replies)
areknames: <It's got to be a reference to Korchnoi's tripled isolated pawns> Ok, but let's not forget that White had 3 queens (1 original + 2 promotions) and Black is about to crown a 3rd and decisive Queen when his opponent resigns.
   Oct-10-19 Bagirov vs O Salmensuu, 1994
areknames: Haha, gotta love 42..Qf5. Now White can capture Black's Q in no less than 4 different ways, 2 of which are checkmate. So what does he do? He mates in another way!
   Oct-10-19 A Firouzja vs M Karthikeyan, 2019 (replies)
areknames: <11.Bd3 is a little better than 11.f3.> Karthikeyan seems to agree, Black still ends up with a good position though.
   Sep-24-19 E Rodriguez Guerrero vs C Costello, 2005
areknames: What a Weird Winawer. Black actually plays extremely well in the opening/early middlegame until he gives up a rook and 2 minors for the Q and 28...Rg4?? loses on the spot.
   Sep-14-19 Rozentalis vs Sarin Nihal, 2016
areknames: Weird opening and strange play by White. So why doesn't an experienced GM resign after Black's 56th, unless there are serious zeitnot issues? He's just been outplayed by a kid, does he really think said kid can't handle a Q vs Kn+P endgame?
   Sep-09-19 Benko vs Sawyer, 1964 (replies)
areknames: Thanks, <keypusher>. 10.Be8+ is an unexpected resource, although the mate in 2 as played is of course preferable.
   Sep-08-19 J Tompa vs Plachetka, 1974 (replies)
areknames: 23.e5 just screams out to be played. Hardly insane, or am I missing something?
