   Dec-12-18 Berliner vs S E Almgren, 1946 (replies)
goodevans: Stockfish reckons <23...Ne3> is losing and gives instead <23...g6 24. fxg6 N6e5> as equal. I agree. Looking at that position I wouldn't want to play either side!
   Dec-11-18 Miles vs Polugaevsky, 1984 (replies)
goodevans: <GlennOliver: Fascinating game, despite all of the missed opportunities; here's another - 40. ... Rh1> Lot's of missed opportunities, yes, but 40...Rh1+ wasn't one of them. After <40...Rh1+ 41.Kxh1 a1=Q+ 42.Kh2> black still can't avoid the same drawing trick as ...
   Dec-11-18 Hoang Thong Tu vs J Gonzalez Garcia, 2008 (replies)
goodevans: <An Englishman: ... Black had multiple opportunities to win the Ne5 and passed on all of them. Did that Knight remain poisoned every single time?> Thanks for pointing this out. It's indeed very interesting. I'd say the soundness of the N-sac is clear to start with since ...
   Dec-10-18 Nimzowitsch vs L Steiner, 1927 (replies)
goodevans: After 24 moves white is a pawn down without compensation. So far, so bad, but then he eschews the possibility of keeping the deficit to one pawn for no obvious reason. In the end, being unable to stop those two Q-side pawns killed him off. Bxg7 (possibly after 25.Bd5+) was ...
   Dec-10-18 Tal vs A S Segal, 1952 (replies)
goodevans: <ndg2: 29...Rxc5 30.Rf7+ would turn it into 'easy', not 'very easy'.> I agree. Needing to see that <29.Rxd7 Rxc5> needs consideration when neither 30.Rxc7 nor 30.Qxc5 nor 30.bxc5 work makes this more than usual Monday fare.
   Dec-05-18 M Pein vs Svidler, 1991 (replies)
goodevans: <paavoh: ... Svidler deserved to lose for choosing this opening> I guess you must have some sort of personal grudge against this opening because it looks fine to me right up until the <19...Qxc5?> error, exposing the weakness at c7. Pein capitalised energetically on ...
   Dec-02-18 E Jimenez Zerquera vs Hort, 1963 (replies)
goodevans: Hort played some poor moves in the opening but <12...exd4?> really stands out. It's the sort of move an average club player would be ashamed of. If you've got a weakness on e6 why would you invite your opponent to post a N on d4? Seriously, why?
   Nov-28-18 L B Hansen vs G Vescovi, 1995 (replies)
goodevans: I went with 19.Bh6+, which is slower but still winning. <Walter Glattke: ... 19.Bh6+!? Kh8 20.Qf7 Nf8!> ... 21.Bg7#. I didn't go with 19.Rxh7+ Kxh7 20.Ng5+ because I failed to spot 20...Kh8 21.Qh3+. Instead I spent a while looking at <19.Rxh7+ Kxh7 20.Qf7+>. I ...
   Nov-25-18 B Bok vs Miroslav Markovic, 2016 (replies)
goodevans: <al wazir> I agree. That would have wrapped things up quicker.
   Nov-25-18 Aronian vs Leko, 2007 (replies)
goodevans: Sunday - "Insane" Well, <24...Nxa2 25.Nxa2 Rc2> is easy to spot. After that, white has a choice between <26.Bxe5> and <26.Ba3> to win back the pawn. The former activates black's bishop so maybe the latter is better but either way black doesn't seem to be able to
