   Dec-06-17 Caruana vs Anand, 2017 (replies)
 
benveniste: I guess Anand is not human. After g6, ♘d3, Black has to defend against a "can opener" exchange sac at f7.
 
   Dec-04-17 Aronian vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
 
benveniste: Hmmm... It looks like Sergey had real chances with 33. ♗e7
 
   Nov-08-17 Short vs Vaganian, 1989 (replies)
 
benveniste: Move 47 puzzle? I get: 47. ♖xg7 ♔xg7 48. ♕e8 I don't see any way for black to prevent ♗e5+, leading either to mate or the loss of the Queen.
 
   Jul-25-17 K Meier vs A A Howell, 2007 (replies)
 
benveniste: When I checked my "solution" on the computer, it _didn't_ want me to choose the royal fork. Instead, it claimed that 32. ... ♕b3 was mate in 9! 32. ... ♕b3 33. ♔e2 ♖f8 34. ♘f5 ♕f2+ 35. ♔d3 ♗b4 36. ♕xd5 ♗xd5
 
   Jun-19-17 Van der Wiel vs J van Baarle, 1983 (replies)
 
benveniste: I initially found ♖g7+, which is mate in 3. But I figured that was too hard for Monday and eventually got it right.
 
   Jun-14-17 Karjakin vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
 
benveniste: 34. ♘d2 g4 (0-1).
 
   Jun-12-17 Nakamura vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
 
benveniste: Draw accepted. No shock.
 
   Jun-11-17 Kramnik vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
 
benveniste: <offramp>, in this case "sucks" means it loses a little less than 1 tempo. Naka choose ♕g4 instead, which I predict will lead to a fairly quick draw.
 
   May-18-17 L'Ami vs E Safarli, 2007 (replies)
 
benveniste: <al wazir: After 29. Qf1 Bxb2 30. Nxb2 Rb8 31. Re1 Qd4 32. Nd1 Rb1 33. Bb3, black's attack has dissipated.> On this line, Black plays 30. ♕a3 instead of ♖b8 and the Knight falls in all lines. Stockfish dithers between 31. ♖xc6, 31. ♖c1, and 31. ...
 
   May-11-17 D Howell vs R Jumabayev, 2016 (replies)
 
benveniste: I'm not taking full credit because I didn't look past ♗c6.
