   Dec-18-18 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018 (replies)
perfessor: <No defence against Bf8 and Bg7!> Or, Be7 and Bf6, winning even more material.
   Dec-14-18 Pillsbury vs Burn, 1895
perfessor: "... a queen too much." An unnecessary but entertaining annotation.
   Nov-28-18 L B Hansen vs G Vescovi, 1995 (replies)
perfessor: That clot of Black pieces on the queenside look like a Sam LLoyd helpmate problem.
   Sep-29-18 C Bauer vs Korchnoi, 2000
perfessor: Suppose Black heads to the Q-side with his king. The best he can do is allow a pawn trade, then win the White bishop for the other pawn. Then the White king cannot be forced away from h1 because the remaining bishop is the wrong color. A dead draw as can be found in all the books.
   Sep-06-18 J Xiong vs Shabalov, 2017 (replies)
perfessor: <An Engliishman: I thought the white queen could block the black queen to avoid mate in the final position.> if 27. Qe3 Rxe7 with mate next move.
   Aug-07-18 Tal vs Springall, 1964 (replies)
perfessor: A very fun game - Springall went toe-to-toe with one of the great tacticians and put up a great fight.
   Jul-16-18 Naiditsch vs C Jeitz, 2016 (replies)
perfessor: I looked for a second and thought "Wow, this looks like a Monday puzzle." Then I remembered that it was Monday.
   Dec-31-17 G Meier vs Mohammed Ali Al Jabri, 2017
perfessor: The rook floated like a butterfly back to f6. And got stung.
   Nov-27-17 Hector vs Barbero, 1991 (replies)
perfessor: The old saying I learned is, Three pieces is a mate. Four is too many, and five - well, you better start by giving something away.
   Nov-24-17 Steinitz vs V Green, 1866
perfessor: Wait, what?? Stockfish says that some noname from 1866 played second-rate moves against Steinitz and lost? Who woulda thunk it? IMO, such games are for entertainment only, unless you get instructional value from "How to beat the players you were going to beat anyway".
