   Aug-18-17 R Panjwani vs Ivanchuk, 2014 (replies)
crwynn: What about 34.Qxh6+ Ke7 35.Qg5+ Kd7 (how else to escape checks?) 36.Qxf4 Qxe2+ 37.Kh1, is 37...Be3 38.Qf1 still winning? Or is there an alternative?
   Jun-26-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs A Korobov, 2017
crwynn: 22...d5 strikes me as a move Korobov knew was objectively bad, but he had nothing else to do so he did it. Playing a "bad" ...d5 or ...b5 to stir up complications (as indeed he did!) instead of some passive "good" move that offers little practical hope
   Jun-21-17 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
crwynn: Isn't this just thrown away on move 30?
   Jun-21-17 Timman vs J Smeets, 2007
crwynn: Thanks. I should point out that the line 51.Kb5 g5 52.h3 h5 53.g3 f5 54.f3 g4 is not mutual queening: if 55.fg h4 f4 57.Kc4 Nb4!, and Black queens with check. But after 55.hg f4 h4 57.g5 h3 58.g6 Nf6 the knight watches g8 and the new queen a8.
   Jun-19-17 Altibox Norway (2017) (replies)
crwynn: According to this site anyway, the lowest-rated of Aronian's 9 opponents was Sergey Karjakin at 2781 - what a fish amirite?
   Jun-06-17 Lasker vs Pillsbury, 1900
crwynn: In the position after 8.Ne5 Black would really like to make a prophylactic move before castling, but does he have one? We could try playing 8...g6 first: you hate to play it but you have to anyway, so why not now? After 9.Nxg6 hg 10.Bxg6+ Kf8, Black's rook as well as the knight are ...
   Jun-06-17 R Rapport vs D Anton Guijarro, 2016 (replies)
crwynn: Or even 29...Qxb6+ 30.Kh2 Nf4
   Jun-06-17 D Anton Guijarro vs S Azarov, 2017 (replies)
crwynn: Guijarro has been doing remarkably well lately, this game aside
   May-28-17 Sasikiran vs K Piorun, 2017 (replies)
crwynn: 13...ab is an interesting knight sacrifice, though i doubt white can accept it. 14.b4 dc b4 and black should end up with 3 very good pawns for the knight.
   May-28-17 A Byrne vs J Skaale, 2017 (replies)
crwynn: 28.hg fg 29.Rxg5 Qd4+ 30.Ke1 Nd3+ may win for White but it's very hard to calculate it. Did you?
