   Apr-19-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Yifan Hou, 2017 (replies)
benveniste: Looks like she missed the check after ♘e4.
   Apr-11-17 W So vs Onischuk, 2017 (replies)
benveniste: To me it looks like Onischuk fell victim to "fancy play syndrome" here with 20. ... ♖b4. 20. ♕xc4 looks like it leads to a draw with chances for both side. Giving back the exchange with ♕b6 leaves So with the bishop pair but also a fairly equal game.
   Apr-10-17 S Foisor vs Emily Nguyen, 2017
benveniste: Is 20. d6 sound? Or is 20. f4 a better move?
   Apr-04-17 Robson vs Shabalov, 2017 (replies)
benveniste: After 25... ♕c2, even I can find: 26. g6 h6 (forced) 27. ♕h4. Now the black queen has no choice but to scurry back to c5, and White has at least two good attacking options (d4, Nh5).
   Mar-30-17 S Shankland vs W So, 2017 (replies)
benveniste: I predict a flurry of exchanges ending up with opposite bishops and So having a slightly better pawn structure. Absent a blunder, a draw before move 40.
   Mar-29-17 W So vs Shabalov, 2017 (replies)
benveniste: 21. ... b6, 22: ♕f3 is not a real improvement for black.
   Mar-16-17 A Gupta vs R Praggnanandhaa, 2016 (replies)
benveniste: I first tried ♗xc3, but it leads to a draw. 55. ♗xc3 ♔xc3 56. ♖c8+ ♔d3 57. b8/Q ♖xc8 White can either take the rook, which leads to a drawn K+P/K game, or decline and draw by perpetual check.
   Mar-03-17 I Cheparinov vs Navara, 2007 (replies)
benveniste: <Jimfromprovidence>After 31. h4 g6 it goes 32. ♗xg6 ♖b2 (Forced, methinks). 33. ♕b5 Once the smoke clears, white ends up with a Queen and a pawn for a bishop and a knight.
   Mar-02-17 Jobava vs Winants, 2007 (replies)
benveniste: I didn't get this one, but obviously Baadur saw it well ahead of time OOB. 48. ♖c1 seems like it's a lot easier of a win.
   Mar-01-17 A Muzychuk vs Tan Zhongyi, 2017 (replies)
benveniste: Oops. Anna gets a second chance. Now ♕e6 or ♕f3 wins.
