   Oct-24-17 B Savchenko vs J van Foreest, 2016 (replies)
avidfan: 11...Bb7xd5 is better than the strategically weak 11...e6xd5? <blocking> the line of sight on the long b7-g2 diagonal for Black's Bishop also doubling and probably isolating the pawn on d5 [DIAGRAM]
   Sep-14-17 Grischuk vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
avidfan: Following yesterday's Aronian vs D Dubov, 2017 game where GM Seirawan showed how to win in a <R+P vs b+p> ending, even he and Eric Hansen on "chessbrah" stream had a hard time showing the win here after move 44...Be3-f4 [DIAGRAM] 44. Ra2 g4+ 45.Kh5 g3 46.h3 Be3 47.Kg4 Bf2 ...
   Sep-07-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs M Khusenkhojaev, 2017
avidfan: Hey <ChessHigherCat>, how appropriate the observation from one feline on the amusing "copycat" moves which almost produced symmetrical positions after 18...Qc8. [DIAGRAM]

avidfan: Under the <Chess Challenge> profile, why is there not a consecutive record of moves played? I was thinking of using it as a sort of index to find when a move was first played. It will be useful to limit a search to a range of pages through the huge amount of kibitzes.
   May-17-14 R Douven vs Van der Wiel, 1989 (replies)
avidfan: White surely missed 34.Nxe6 since mate is threatened next by 35.Qxg7. 34...fxe6 35.Qxe6 is check with an additional atttacker on rook at c8. [DIAGRAM] 35...Kh8 36.Rxc8 Rxc8 37.Qxc8+ 35...Kf8 attracts 36.Rf1+ Nf6 etc. ...
   Feb-17-14 Alekhine vs Spielmann, 1923 (replies)
avidfan: The final position gives a very striking example of good Bishop vs. bad bishop. The light squared bishop on the <long> diagonal controls h1, the promotion square. [DIAGRAM] The f4-pawn is a liability as it <blocks> or masks the bishop at d6 from <ready access> to
