mike1: would be nice to see a report for the Reykjavik tournament here on CG... don't like to look at other websites all the time before betting on it.
   Feb-27-18 V Kovalev vs M A Tabatabaei, 2018 (replies)
mike1: not that sure about the comments above. black allows white to do everything he likes. 29,30,31 all bishop moves are for the bin. h4,g4 and maybe Kg6 instead and I don't think white can advance easily
   Feb-14-18 Larsen vs Joel Benjamin, 1987 (replies)
mike1: If Larsen would have played the exchange sac straight away it would have been a most impressive start of a sequence I have seen for a long time. 41.R1d2 b5, 42.b3 43.Qa1 44.Rxf7 45.Qe5 Would have.. but no, did not Qe5 myself

mike1: well... just wondering who played for a win after , lets say, move 34? Why did Fedoseev play this active 35 f4? Leaving the pawn structure unchanged should guaranty a draw.

mike1: Could please someone advise why 31.Rxh6 does not work? Next either Qxg5+ or Rh7+...
   Nov-15-17 Ding Liren vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
mike1: 20... b5 is a move for the ages. would have never crossed my mind. White is already lost here and yes, all the bells are ringing but where do you put that queen??
