   Jan-19-18 Sax vs Minic, 1975 (replies)
njchess: Black inexplicably doesn't castle from after move 9, even though White has a solid attack in the middle. To make matters worse, Black completely misses the pin and fork from White by retaking the bishop with his queen. I saw this game before when it was used as an illustration of ...
   Jan-18-18 Csom vs A Planinc, 1974 (replies)
njchess: Got this because it seemed c5 was the ONLY move that helped in any way. It appeared to me that White would be left with a ♖ vs ♗ ending with White also having a slight advantage in pawn structure. Advantage White. I wonder if it would have been better for Black to play ...
   Jan-17-18 E Blomqvist vs E Romanov, 2016 (replies)
njchess: The initial sequence was enough. 23. ... ♖xa5 24. ♕xa5 ♖e2+ 25. ♔f1 It took me a bit to find 25. ... ♗d3 letting Black's queen attack.
   Jan-16-18 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
njchess: My guess is White resigned, though since it was a rapid tournament, he could have been clocked. Black's d4 thrust is a killer. White loses any chance for counter play after Black plays 37. ... Qd5+.
   Jan-11-18 Bu Xiangzhi vs Zhihang Xu, 2017 (replies)
njchess: 24. ♕c4+, ♘e7+, ♘h6+, ♗xf6 all lead nowhere. That pretty much left ♖d7 as the only move to further the attack. 24. ♖d7 ♕xd7 25. ♘h6+ ♔h8 26. ♕xd7 ♙xh6 +- or 24. ♖d7 g6 25. ♖f1d1 +- Either way, the game is ...
   Jan-04-18 B Kovacevic vs R Almond, 2006 (replies)
njchess: Great game from Black! 15. ... F5 is telegraphed but White can't do anything about it. Love the way Black uses the queen side pressure to lure Black's knight away and then lands 20. ... Bxh2+! followed by 22. ... Bxg2!! wiping out White's king side. White has to give back material ...
   Jan-04-18 D Belenkaya vs A Kashlinskaya, 2016 (replies)
njchess: Got this one pretty easily. White has no counterattack, so it was a matter of finding Black's best move. Even though Rxd2 is tempting, it only amounted to exchanging pieces. Nxf2 not only gets the knight out of trouble, but it can't be taken due to Rxd2, Ne4+ taking White's queen. ...
   Jan-03-18 Huzman vs Kasparov, 2003
njchess: Ouch! Yeah, 20. ... Bc8 is a rare, clear blunder by Kasparov. The rook is poison since Nxd5 leads to Qxh7++, and Qxd5 leads to Ne7+ neatly forking the queen. Tough game for Kasparov.
   Dec-22-17 Sakaev vs Kramnik, 1989 (replies)
njchess: Good grief! How did Kramnik get himself into this mess?!!?
   Dec-16-17 Navara vs Z Sturua, 2016 (replies)
njchess: I only got this because there just didn't seem to be any other viable option. Re1 fails miserably, and although I thought Nxg6 was uncertain, it was the best of the worst. I'm not sure fxg6 is any worse than the game continuation. All that for a pawn...
