   Jul-03-18 Zukertort vs Anderssen, 1864 (replies)
sakredkow: I don't understand why Zukertort gave up on this game. 28. e4 dxe4 29. Bf4 Bf5 30. Re3 Rf4. Why did he quit at this point?
   Jun-30-18 Kiril D Georgiev vs Nisipeanu, 2000
sakredkow: Jacob Aagaard gives an in-depth look at this endgame in "Excelling at Chess" as an example of the situational strength of B over N.
   Jun-28-18 W So vs Caruana, 2018
sakredkow: I find a lot of value in studying rapid games, speed games, blitz etc., esp. those between grandmasters. I'm sure you can find games in blitz and rapid that are just as instructive and just as beautiful as those in classical time controls. At the same time there's rubbishy games ...
   Jun-28-18 Nakamura vs A R Saleh Salem, 2018
sakredkow: After 16. Rae1 White's kingside is tight and concentrated. So much power in that one corner of the board.
   Jun-07-18 Mamedyarov vs Karjakin, 2018 (replies)
sakredkow: That would be a dirty shame.
   May-23-18 V Artemiev vs Yilun Zhu, 2018
sakredkow: 36...Nc6+ 37. ? your Monday puzzle right there.
   Apr-16-18 D Sadzikowski vs A Mista, 2017 (replies)
sakredkow: First noticed Black checkmates next move, so whatever white does it has to disrupt that. Then it was easy to find the checkmate after seeing the only forcing move is Qxf8+. It was very fast to solve but I'm not sure better players have to go through a "process" or if they just see
   Apr-12-18 Larsen vs Ulf Andersson, 1982 (replies)
sakredkow: 4...d5 is kind of an oddball opening to begin with. I guess Larsen played 6. d4 because he didn't want to give up a lot of real estate with 6. d3 d5, but after 6. d4 black's emerging IQP is a real hot shot - he's going places. And then why 8. Qd3? Andersson must have been thinking
   Apr-07-18 Bologan vs Adams, 1994
sakredkow: That's quite the knight's tour starting with 12...Nd7.
   Mar-28-18 Korchnoi - Geller Candidates Quarterfinal (1971) (replies)
sakredkow: For no particular reason I wonder where in Moscow this match was played?
