   Oct-16-17 V Ciocaltea vs C Radovici, 1968
clement41: I just came across the tactical diagram 24...? in an old chess book in a bookstore in Paris. I had never heard of the black player. Here is a nice draw by repetition (I think): 24...Qg3 25 Qc5?! b6 26 Qe3 Bh6 27 Qd4 Bg7 28 Qe3 Bh6 = Of course, 24...Qh2?? fails to 25 Qxf8+/26 ...

clement41: Had the Bc8 been better developed, say on b7, it'd still be mate! And still monday-ish.
   Oct-12-17 Wei Yi vs A Haast, 2015
clement41: 22...Qh3 triggers #6 and no doubt Wei Yi saw it till the end. Under OTB conditions white must have nerves and trust his calcs. 22...Qh3?? 23 Nc7 Ke7 24 Bc5 d6 25 Rd6! (25 Bd6?? Kd7 and mate prospects are gone) and here white had to carefully check that black has no avoiding the ...
   Oct-11-17 P Cramling vs A Galliamova, 1994 (replies)
clement41: 39 c8N+ is the best practical chance but objectively 39 c8Q wins too although white'd have to make sure he does not get mated after 39...Rg5+ 40 Kf6 and no he doesn't. However with a black pawn on e7 this would threaten 39...e6# or 39...Rg5# and thus would force 39 c8N+. An ...
   Oct-10-17 S Bouaziz vs Miles, 1979
clement41: After 48...g5+??, 49 Kh5 Qf6 50 Rd6 Bxd6 51 c8Q +-, however after 49 Kxg5?? Be7+ 50 Kh5 Qf6 51 c8Q and here we have an extremely sharp position: The best move 51...Kh7 is -#2 (52 Qf5+ Qg6+!! 53 Qg6+ fg#) (the engine finds stupid delays like 52 Qh8+ etc.); while the 2nd best leads ...
   Oct-10-17 Miles vs S Bouaziz, 1979
clement41: A thrilling and fighting draw! This deserves kibitz!
   Oct-07-17 Motylev vs E Najer, 2015
clement41: Why did black avoid the natural-looking 10...Nd5 ? The final combination is delightful

clement41: Oops I meant 32 Qxb8? and 32 fe+ obviously
   Oct-05-17 G Vescovi vs M Bezold, 1997
clement41: Actually, under OTB conditions, keeping playing after the text's last move still makes sense as white can go astray, especially a few moves before the time control where supposedly white had a quite limited amount of time to think; e.g. 35 ed?! Qf3, followed by ...ed or ...e3 ...

clement41: wow what a wild game!
