dfcx: <thegoodanarchist: I wonder if the venue was actually "Tysons Corner".> Yes it was "Tysons Corner". But locals usually just say "Tysons".

dfcx: I also went with 14.Nb5. According to the engine, black's best defense against Nb5 is 14.Nb5 (+3.50) 14...Bxf4 15.Nxc7 Rxd1+ 16.Kxd1 Bxc7 With 14.Rxd6 (+4.35) 14...e5 15.Nb5 Qe7 16.Rxd8+ Nxd8 17.Bg3 a6 white gets to keep the bishop, but black also keeps his queen. I ...

dfcx: Like others, I also went with 46.Qh8, which appears to be as good as Qe5.

dfcx: 31...? black to move would be a great puzzle for Wednesday or Thursday. According to Mr. Stockfish, white went down after 29.h3? (-2.89) white would have kept himself in the game with 29.Kf1 (-0.45) 31.Rxf4?? (-8.30) sealed his fate.

dfcx: <Walter Glattke: Better for White also were 19.g3 or 19.Ng6 Nxg6 20.Qxg6 Be6 21.Bxe6, but not good as 19.Qh7+.> After 19.g3 or 19.Ng6, 19...Qxc4+ and black is suddenly alive.
   Dec-16-17 Navara vs Z Sturua, 2016 (replies)
dfcx: Realizing 20.Re1? Nf2 21.Rxe7 Nxd3 22.Rxe8+ Rxe8 loses a piece for white, the solution comes up naturally. 20.Nxg6! fxg6 21.Re1 wins back the knight since 21...Nf2 is now met with 22.Qxg6+ White will be up a pawn and also open the g file for future attacks.
   Dec-14-17 Murey vs T Bottema, 1987 (replies)
dfcx: The game line was easy to figure out, the hard part for me was to figure out the following line 32.Rb8 Qxb4 33.Rxc8+ Kf7 34.Rb8!
   Dec-09-17 V Malakhov vs A H T dos Santos Fier, 2009 (replies)
dfcx: My Stockfish (not CG's) found after a few minutes: 41.Rg3 Rxh2! 42.Nxe4 Rxh7 43.Qxf6+ Rf7 +1.00 depth 30. [DIAGRAM]
   Dec-01-17 O Bernstein vs Kotov, 1946 (replies)
dfcx: <kevin86: White either win the queen of mates quickly!> It's always mate in 3. 50.f5+ Qxf5 51.Qxh6+ gxh6 52.Rg8#
   Nov-29-17 A Schwarz vs Bird, 1873 (replies)
dfcx: 31.Rxg6!! Qxc2+ 32.Rg2! Qxd3?? 33.Rg7+ and mate in 2
