get Reti: I've found in many games recently that Leela Zero spends a tempo playing a3 or h3 to prevent an opponent's bishop from pinning the knight early in the opening. I remember reading books by Irving Chernev pointing out how this is such a beginner's move and should rarely by done, ...

get Reti: I like the aesthetics of the move 28. Qh7+. It's a queen sac, but you don't get a piece back in exchange; rather the point is that in drawing the king to h7, you don't lose a single move in checking the king to death, whereas 28.Rxg7 would lose a single move and allow Qxh2#.

get Reti: I don't think anyone mentioned this, but I saw a longer winning line after 26...Kh8, instead of 27. Rxh8+ (which forces mate), white can play 27. Bxd4+! Qxf3 (...Rxd4 leads to Rf8+ followed by mate) 28. Rd7+ Kg8 29. Rg5+ Kf8 30. Bg7+ Kg8 31. Bc3+ Kf8 32. Bxb4+ Rd7 33. Rxd7 with an ...
 
   Jan-19-19 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2018
 
get Reti: I couldn't figure out the point of 15.Ng5 at first, and then all of a sudden you find out it's to play Rh3 to protect the c3 knight so white can play b3 and control the c4 square. Super deep and subtle computer stuff.
 
   Jan-13-19 Old Benoni Defense (A44) (replies)
 
get Reti: Leela Chess literally evaluated this position (1. d4 c5 2. d5 e5) as +2.25 in a TCEC game against Stockfish. Wow.
 
   Jan-12-19 I Saric vs M Bosiocic, 2018 (replies)
 
get Reti: The puzzle tricks you, because you're so focused on the queen and rook coordinating on g7 that you don't think of taking two moves to shift the queen to a different diagonal.

get Reti: Will chessgames add any games for LeelaChess?
 
   Nov-18-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
get Reti: That pin on the knight looks really uncomfortable. How will Fabi wriggle out of it, besides h6 and g5?
 
   Oct-17-18 Saemisch vs Teichmann, 1922 (replies)
 
get Reti: Is a three time repetition claimable even many moves after it happens? That's what the notation on the right side of the board seems to say.
 
   Jul-29-18 Mamedyarov vs Navara, 2018 (replies)
 
get Reti: I feel like there was no reason to play 15...Bg4. Black then has to babysit his g pawn with the knight, and can no longer use the light squared bishop to protect his c pawn (although I guess that still wouldn't have been too great a role for the bishop).
