   Jun-22-18 Kramnik vs W So, 2018 (replies)
 
lunchwithgina: The position after 22. Nb5 could make a good Wednesday or Thursday puzzle. I recognized the game crisis at 22. Nb5; alas, I failed to find 22...Qe2, even knowing there had to be a shot in this position.
 
   Jun-20-18 N Birnboim vs S Porat, 2004 (replies)
 
lunchwithgina: Hello Chessgames.com--something is wrong with the transcription of this game score--starting with 22...Qe5, the moves become hallucinogenic.
 
   Jun-19-18 Vasilije Tomovic
 
lunchwithgina: Vasilije Tomović aka Vasily Tomovic (born 11 May 1906, died c. 1994) was a Montenegrin chess master. See wikipedia for a more complete biography.
 
   Jun-02-18 V Fedoseev vs Bologan, 2018
 
lunchwithgina: I suppose Bologan could not bring himself to play 12...Qd7, admitting that 11...Qe7 was a lemon. And after 12...b5 13. Nb5, the tactics flow from the superior position.
 
   May-31-18 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
 
lunchwithgina: I rather admired the little move 18. Qc4. black can't free up his Q-side without making concessions, and Aronian never really activated his Q-side pieces.
 
   Apr-24-18 A Zatonskih vs I Krush, 2018 (replies)
 
lunchwithgina: Nice change-of-front theme: first a king-side demonstration, provoking the backward pawn at e3, followed by a quick transfer of the initiative to the queen-side.
 
   Mar-20-18 Polugaevsky vs Nunn, 1980 (replies)
 
lunchwithgina: A short but effective king walk by Nunn to cap a great attacking game.... nonesuch = a person or thing that is regarded as perfect or excellent. <weary_willy>: I like your suggestion of nunnpariel as well
 
   Mar-15-18 J Friedel vs Sundararajan, 2018
 
lunchwithgina: 30. Ree2?? ouch...time trouble?
 
   Mar-14-18 Karjakin vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
 
lunchwithgina: <An Englishman> I think at 22...Nf6 white has a pawn's worth of compensation, but 23. Bb7 wins back a pawn at the cost of allowing black to exchange or activate his Q-side pieces. Perhaps 23. Nb3 is better, intending Nc5 or Na5, keeping black's Q-side bottled up a little
 
   Mar-06-18 S Nikolic vs Chandler, 1979
 
lunchwithgina: A good example of patient exploitation of the two bishops.
