   Aug-14-18 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1909 (replies)
 
mjmorri: <maxi: All Rook endgames are draws.> But the converse, "All draws are Rook endgames.", is not true.
 
   Aug-09-18 V Laznicka vs Movsesian, 2007 (replies)
 
mjmorri: <Oxspawn: ...play the position, not the label.> Well said. Such bad habits might creep into our real Monday games where we spend all of our time looking for a Queen sacrifice on move 1.
 
   Jul-23-18 L de La Fuente vs A Nesterov, 2017 (replies)
 
mjmorri: <saturn2: Material balance. Black does not threaten much. I went with 31 Qd5 Nf7 (RxQ will be mate in one) 32 QxNf7 Kh8 34 Qf8 RxQ 35 RxR> Mixing notation methods is very dangerous. Could explode at any moment.
 
   Jun-26-18 A Veingold vs B Ivanovic, 1979
 
mjmorri: Black quickly gets into trouble after castling long. Stockfish 9 recommends going for a perpetual with 17...Bd6 18.h4 exd5 19.Nxd5 Qb5 20.Nc3 Qxg5 21.hxg5 Bh2+ 22.Kh1 Bd6+ 23.Kg1. 22.Nd5 is a great move. If 22...Qxe6 then 23.Nb6 mate, demonstrating the power of controlling open ...
 
   Jun-05-18 Sigurdur Eiriksson vs Elmar Fjallheim, 2018
 
mjmorri: One of those cases where Black, not thinking about the move order, probably thought White had a knight on f3 instead of d2.
 
   Jun-05-18 Quinteros vs Seirawan, 1985 (replies)
 
mjmorri: I believe Indian defenses are defined more by restricted pawn movements than by anything else.
 
   Jun-01-18 Denker vs Botvinnik, 1945 (replies)
 
mjmorri: Interesting to see the White light squared Bishop developed to e2 here, rather than the fianchetto setup.
 
   Apr-30-18 Sharon Burtman
 
mjmorri: I played Sharon once in 1984. She accepted a draw in a winning pawn endgame, lucky me.
 
   Mar-27-18 Grischuk vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
mjmorri: An instructive endgame. Creating dual threats that the weaker side could not simultaneously cover.
 
   Mar-27-18 Kramnik vs NN, 1999 (replies)
 
mjmorri: With 9...Ne5, NN decides to play for the win against a GM. After playing for about 500 years, you would think he would know better by now.
