   Aug-09-18 Carlsen vs N Georgiadis, 2018 (replies)
jdc2: Tough game for Nico. Of the 18 possible moves after 46. a4, 9 of them lead to a draw: Kf8, Kh7, Kg8, Kg6, Bb8, Be5, Bc7, bxc3, Kh8.
   Dec-26-17 Damljanovic vs Geller, 1987 (replies)
jdc2: What The Patzer Saw: 35...Re8, threatening Nh3 mate, so 36. Be4 RxB+, not realizing the black king can take the pawn on f3 after the knight moves....
   Dec-05-17 J Mason vs Blackburne, 1901
jdc2: The position after 25. a5 is problem #608 in Reinfeld's "1001 Winning Chess Sacrifices and Combinations".
   Sep-12-17 D Byrne vs Bisguier, 1966 (replies)
jdc2: This seemed a lot easier than yesterday's problem, didn't even have to switch the board around to look at it from Black's point of view.
   Aug-15-17 Oral vs S Brodbeck, 1997 (replies)
jdc2: <Coriolis> Ha! I missed Nxf7 too and saw the same line but with 26. Rxh6# but it turns out that 23. Nf7+ is also a forced mate! 23. Nf7+ Nxf7 (23... Kg8 24. Nxh6+ Kh8 25. Nf5+ Bh6 26. Rxh6#) 24. gxf7 c4 25. Rdg1 b3 26. fxe8=Q+ Rxe8 27. Rxh6+ Bxh6 28. Qd4+ Kh7 29. Qd7+ Kh8 30. ...
   Jun-21-16 G Mittermayr vs C Kleijn, 2009 (replies)
jdc2: A terrific problem! I saw a completely wrong line and missed it entirely. I saw Bf4+ 2.Kb1 (Q or R moves to block result in mate by Ra1)Ra1+ 3.Kxa1 Ra8+ 4.Kb1 Qa5 but didn't see that the white bishop could go to a4 to block, also that after Qa5 the white pawn could go to c3.
   Apr-29-16 Carlsen vs Eljanov, 2016 (replies)
jdc2: I sometimes play one engine against another using a starting position from an actual game, in order to see other possibilities. I used the position after Black's move 9 here and for some reason the engines did this: [Date "2016.04.29"] [White "Stockfish 240416 64 POPCNT"] [Black ...
   Feb-08-16 J Shepley vs J Mann, 2014 (replies)
jdc2: Manned and Ready? Sheperded Down A Mannhole? One Small Step For A Mann, One Giant Loss For Shepley?
   Jan-26-16 Carlsen vs Adams, 2016 (replies)
jdc2: I would say given his long thinks on moves 46-48 that Carlsen probably had the entire plan worked out after 49.b4. He didn't use much time on any moves after that.
   Jan-26-16 Tata Steel (2016) (replies)
jdc2: Yes, he probably saw that with fewer pieces on the board his pawn advantage made for less work.
