   Jan-16-17 L Machado vs K McDonald, 2016 (replies)
patfoley: 23 ...e5 could run into 24 Bh5, threatening 25 c5 and 26 d6.
   Aug-24-16 Roesch vs W Schlage, 1910 (replies)
patfoley: This game was used in season 2 episode 7 of Mr. Robot. Ray is white, Elliot is black.
   Jul-22-16 Carlsen vs A Giri, 2016 (replies)
patfoley: I meant Ra7
   Jun-02-16 Caruana vs A Giri, 2016 (replies)
patfoley: 38 Rd8 looks like a serious possibility.
   May-16-16 S Salihu vs Jobava, 2016
patfoley: 16 ... Na3 is fun and not bad, but apparently worth a little less in the eyes of Hiarchs than Qe5 which gives black about a pawn advantage.
   Apr-27-16 Kharlov vs Tseshkovsky, 1996 (replies)
patfoley: My idea fails because of blacks Q check at d5
   Apr-16-16 I Rabinovich vs Botvinnik, 1927 (replies)
patfoley: 23 ... Bh3ch is pretty good.
   Apr-03-16 Leitao vs F de Cresce El Debs, 2015 (replies)
patfoley: I got the main ideas, but did not foresee how lost and bereft that Black black bishop would be.
   Mar-30-16 Botvinnik vs N Grigoriev, 1927 (replies)
patfoley: There is some clever stuff if 28 ... Qxe5, 29Qxf8ch Ng1 30 Qf7 Nf6 31 gxf4! Qxf5 32 Qf8 ch again
   Mar-28-16 Karjakin vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
patfoley: Instead of 22 ... Be3, perhaps the plan of marching the a pawn to a3 would have retained tension and created that b2 mate threat together with back rank mate possibilities.
