   Apr-18-19 W Arencibia vs J Magem Badals, 1991 (replies)
claia: <newzild: I spotted the first two moves easily enough from the starting position, but envisaged 28. Qe6 instead of the simple 28. Rc7. This was my main line: 26. Bxf7+ Kxf7 27. Qd5+ Qf8 28. Qe6 Qxd6 29. Rxf6+ Bxf6 0. Bxh6+ Bg7 31. Rf1#> After 28. De6 Black reply Txd6 defending ...
   Feb-11-19 V Gunina vs B Khotenashvili, 2019 (replies)
claia: If 46.Bf6 then 46...d2
   Oct-21-12 Tal vs M Fuller, 1974 (replies)
claia: <Fanques Fair: Why did Tal resign ?> Besides the material difference and white King exposure, there is little to do against the threat of 30...Th5 followed by Th1.
   May-11-12 Anand vs Gelfand, 2012 (replies)
claia: According to the official website ( ), one more full move was played: 24. Nxe4 Bf5 and then 1/2-1/2. Isn't that right?
   Mar-09-12 F Briffel Sobrinho vs Dreev, 1985
claia: There is a mistake: the White move is 32. Qd8+ (instead of 32. Qxa8). However, it's funny because it achieved the correct game position 2 moves later with 34. Qxa8 (and not 34. Qa8).
   Jan-31-12 J Flis vs Z Szymczak, 1983 (replies)
claia: < LoveThatJoker: Mate cannot be prevented. For example, 41...Rd1+ 42. Kh2 Ncd8 43. Bh7+ Kh8 44. Bg6+ Kg8 45. Qh7+ Kf8 46. Qh8#> You could mate the same way with the bishop in e4 (initial position) two moves earlier: 41...Rd1+ 42. Kh2 Ncd8 43. Qh7+ Kf8 44. Qh8#
   Jan-25-12 Tata Steel Group A (2012) (replies)
claia: <Blunderdome: Not sure if Radjabov played Qf3 offering a draw or if Van Wely offered and it was just the DGT board picking up something that wasn't played, as sometimes happens> Yeah, maybe you're right. <Both players were very low on time so Van Wely could have missed ...
   Jan-04-12 Topalov vs Morozevich, 2005
claia: <Why not 16.Qxc6?> Because 16...Rc7 17 Qb5 Rb8 followed by 18...Rxb2 and Black seems to be OK.
   Dec-27-11 Cochrane vs Somacarana, 1858 (replies)
claia: Why White resigns? It is slightly better! Black king is not safe (e.g. 39...Ra8 then 40. Rc7+ and mate next move) and his queenside pawns are easy prey. The only move for Black is 39...Re8, but the White queen is not trapped. The following is quite forced: 40. Qd6+ Qxd6 41. Rxa6+ ...
