   Oct-14-19 Lombardy vs N Spiridonov, 1964 (replies)
goodevans: <32...Ng6?> is an interesting mistake. By threatening both the R on e7 and to fork on h4, black must have thought white would be forced to retreat with <33.Re4>. Instead <32...Ng6?> turns out to be a <helpmate> move, removing the only square the black K ...
   Oct-11-19 V Gashimov vs Korchnoi, 2008 (replies)
goodevans: I was really surprised by <45...dxc2>. I'd expected <45...Bxc2>. [DIAGRAM] Surely the pawn wedge is going to convert more easily than tripled pawns? <SkySports: Well, the Hemingway pun is a little bit abused with old players (see Caruana vs Korchnoi, 2011 and Zsofia
   Oct-08-19 L Jackson vs Browne, 1966 (replies)
goodevans: <saturn2> You got in there just before me with the same observation!
   Oct-05-19 Alekhine vs Russian Chess Circle, 1931 (replies)
goodevans: I don't know what black thought <13...f5?> would achieve but it left a hole on e6 that Alekhine exploited to full effect. <15...Nc6?> compounded the error, offering white a tempo to consolidate his grip on e6 with <17.d5>. <15...Na6> would have been better ...
   Oct-03-19 F Frilling vs J L Watson, 1969 (replies)
goodevans: I guess white must have assumed black would just complete the Q trade with <17...Rxa5>. That would have kept the position even. <17...Nxe3> must have come as a bit of a shock. <17...Rxc2+> would also have been good for black. "Never assume..."
   Sep-30-19 D Freeman vs K McDonald, 2011 (replies)
goodevans: <Olsonist: Maybe the puzzle could have started a move or two ealier, no?> One move earlier would have been nice. Two moves earlier doesn't work. Black should have responded to <29.Nf6+> with <29...Kg7>. Then <30.Rxf8?> would not have been check and could ...
   Sep-28-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
goodevans: Ding seems to be the overwhelming favourite to win the final but Radja has one thing in his favour: Almost all matches have been won by the player who played fewer games in the previous round (where the difference was significant). Today's match was no exception.
   Sep-28-19 V Kovacevic vs Z Kozul, 1993
goodevans: <Cheapo by the Dozen: Like a lot of other folks, I saw the game threat but also the Rd2 defense. Yet another bad puzzle.> comes in for quite a bit of criticism, much of which is mistaken. In this case it's a perfectly good puzzle and your assertion that it's a bad ...
   Sep-27-19 Radjabov vs J Xiong, 2019 (replies)
goodevans: <master8ch: Why can't White play 31.Qxa6? Count Wedgemore: <master8ch> He certainly could have played it. Both 31.Qxa6 and 31.Qf4 are good moves in the position.> But why <didn't> White play 31.Qxa6? The answer to that question is probably that <31.Qxa6> ...
   Sep-24-19 J van den Bosch vs Euwe, 1936 (replies)
goodevans: <saturn2: <namesrue: 17...c5 18. Qg3 Qa5+ is still wins for black> How after 19 Rd2?> <19...Bxb2>, apparantly threatening 20...Bc3, looks like it might do the business for black but the precarious position of black's K means it falls short. [DIAGRAM] For ...
