   Dec-09-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018
qqdos: <Count Wedgemore> P.S. I have just read one of your earlier posts about Lasker, which I would like to discuss. My reading of Lasker's approach was to give his opponents problems with difficult positions, time management dilemmas etc. certainly not precluding taking a punt with a
   Dec-09-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018
qqdos: <whiteshark> Raymond Keene in the London Spectator (1:December:2018) takes Caruana to task for meekness in this game. His failure to strike (and not to wound) is linked to moves 23.Rad1 (he prefers Rae1) and 24.h3 (he prefers 24.Qh5). In both cases I do not think either ...
   Oct-14-18 L Mueller vs J S Christiansen, 2018
qqdos: 25.h3?? 0h! Dear - by choosing h2 as the escape square for his King from a check by Ra1, White was lining up his King and Queen on the b8-h2 diagonal.
   Oct-14-18 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Anand, 2018
qqdos: <Zbh> It looks as though Anand did prepare this line and he has now even won the Chess Informant 137 Theoretical Novelty award for his 11 ...Rc8! Well done MVL for finding his way through to a full point.
   Oct-13-18 Ding Liren vs J K Duda, 2018 (replies)
qqdos: According to the computer analysis Ding played several sub-optimal moves that gave Duda more than one chance to save the day. Is that the kind of form that Carlsen will forgive?
   Aug-27-18 I A Kopylov vs S Korolev, 1981 (replies)
qqdos: Reviewing my earlier quote about Korolev, he also seems to have had extensive experience of losing on the black side of this opening - as this and 5 other games listed testify. He certainly did win many games as black and I salute him for perseverance against the odds.
   Jun-06-18 J L Weller vs J Houska, 2018
qqdos: 33...Rxe5! A beautiful and far-sighted sacrifice by Jovanka, as featured by Raymond Keene in the London Times (15 May, 2018). She wants to eliminate the WN which was guarding the g6 square, an ideal spot for the BQ to threaten # on g2 and the WR on b1. If the BQ takes the Rb1, the Re1
   May-02-18 Radjabov vs Carlsen, 2018
qqdos: <FSR> I am not sure why you would want to commemorate this game in a Collection. Why not Carlsen vs Leko, 2007 and Radjabov's own 21 move game last year against Giri with the same line? Maybe a game to forget.
   May-02-18 Ding Liren vs R Mamedov, 2018
qqdos: <pdx> So 37.Kh6?? was a pretty horrendous mistake, given that white had only to choose between 2 squares for his King.
   Apr-30-18 E M Abou El Zein vs Naiditsch, 2018
qqdos: El Zein was doing quite nicely when Naiditsch offered his Bishop with 27.Bb7 but taking with the WN was a dreadful blunder. Instead 28.Qxb7 was still tenable. But in the game Naiditsch found the brilliant ...28.Qh4!! This position was given in the London Times today by the GOM Raymond
