   May-18-18 A E Moussa vs A Nazarov, 2008 (replies)
clement41: The obvious question every kibitzer must be wondering while going over the 50th move is why not the natural-looking Qxc5. Then there’d follow 50...Nh4 51 Kg5 h6 52 Kh5 Kh7!! threatening mate, when there is no satisfying way to parry. e.g. 53 Bf5 Nf5# or 53 Qc7 Nf5 54 Qh2
   May-06-18 M Kravtsiv vs V Kazakovskiy, 2016 (replies)
clement41: In my line above 35 Bf4? would only draw by perpetual after ...Qf4 d8Q Qc1 Kh2 Qf4 g3 Qf2 Kh1 Qf1
   Apr-29-18 A Ostapenko vs S Kurkin, 1970 (replies)
clement41: A nice line occurs following 19 gh Kh8 20 ed f6 21 de Rf7 22 Bh5 and the Rf7 is lost plus black’s king is in big trouble. For ex, 22...Ba4 23 Bf7 Qa6 (protecting f6) 24 (ed threatening Be6 that intercepts the 6th rank hereby threatening Bf6# ) Rc8 25 b3 Bd7 (...Be8?? ...

clement41: Whenever one sees this 25...Bxa2 kind of pawn grab, an idea that should popup to one’s mind is b3/Kb2 trapping the bishop. But here it’d prove too dangerous on account of 26 b3 a5 27 Kb2 a4 28 Kxa2?? ab+ 29 Kxb3 Qa3#
   Apr-04-18 Kasparov vs Huebner, 1986
clement41: 31 Qxf8+ is reminiscent of 30 Qxe8+ here in this Botvinnik game: [DIAGRAM]
   Apr-04-18 Botvinnik vs Boleslavsky, 1941
clement41: Compare the little combination starting 30 Qxe8+/ 31 Rxe5 in this game (the beginning is actually much earlier in the game)with 31 Qxf8+ / 32 hxg4 in that Kasparov game: Kasparov vs Huebner, 1986 here : [DIAGRAM] in both cases the themes are: queen sac on the weak opponent back ...
   Mar-21-18 B Blumenfeld vs G Helbach, 1906
clement41: This variation is very painful for black as all white pieces come very naturally into the game (eg 0-0 is an attacking move in this opening) and precise defense is required. Black can also go 7...Qh4+ 8 g3 Qd8, creating a few holes around white's castle before coming back ...
   Mar-08-18 E Sevillano vs D Lucky, 2012 (replies)
clement41: Three offers of the exchange in a row, thrice declined. The threats associated with these sacs are clearer and clearer (the last one forces mate, the penultimate forces if accepted a material gain, while the first one is to me the less clear, it gains a claim on the light squares ...
   Feb-24-18 Kotov vs Levenfish, 1949
clement41: 7...b6 usually is the tipoff for cxd5 in these positions, a famous instance being the 6th Fischer-Spassky 1972 WCC game. instructive sequence anyway from 28 Qd4!? on, grabbing the initiative and the c7 square for the rook
   Feb-21-18 K Klaman vs Smyslov, 1947 (replies)
clement41: 10 f4/11 Qf3 is thematic and loos interesting. 11...h6 leads to maze-like complications, super fun to analyse!
