samsloan: This is devastating news. I use chessgames all the time. Will it survive? I would be glad to take it over if nobody else is willing or able.

samsloan: Yes. This is my new daughter.
   Jan-07-17 Karjakin vs Jobava, 2016
samsloan: Black blundered with 31. ... Rxe2 dropping the exchange to 32. Rd8+ but Black was in trouble anyway. Best was probably 31. ... Ne5 but Black seems lost anyway.
   Jan-03-17 M Geldyeva vs J Sloan, 2016
samsloan: If Black had simply played 45. ... Kg7 instead of 45. ... f5 I do not see how White can win within the three minute time limit with only ten seconds left on her clock.
   Jan-02-17 J Sloan vs D Charochkina, 2016
samsloan: There was controversy with this game in Round 10. Julia was winning but played exf8=Q+ but pressed the clock before putting a second queen on the board. Black claimed a win. The arbiters on the spot ruled in favor of Julia and and awarded him a point but the chief arbiter changed ...
   Jan-02-17 J Krivec vs J Sloan, 2016
samsloan: 39. ... Rd2 blundered into mate. Black could have played four different moves 39. ... Bf4 or Rc3 or Rb3 or Ra3. All of them defend against the mate and give Black possibly a winning advantage.
   Jan-02-17 J Sloan vs Jemal Ovezdurdiyeva, 2016
samsloan: The obvious move was 27. Qd2 forcing a trade of Queens and a probable draw although White had some chances to win by queening the b-pawn. Instead, White blundered by 27. Rd2 and after 27. ... f6 her queen was trapped and the game lost.
   Jan-01-17 J Krivec vs J Sloan, 2016
samsloan: White blundered her queen. The position could have been saved with 28. Bd4
   Jan-01-17 J Sloan vs Jemal Ovezdurdiyeva, 2016
samsloan: There is an error in the score. White played 28. Rh8# mate on the last move. Black allowed White to steamroller her without putting up effective resistance.
   Jan-01-17 J Sloan vs A Ushenina, 2016 (replies)
samsloan: Here Julia resigned because she loses a piece and/or is getting mater. However she could have hung on a few moves longer. Black is a famous player and former Woman's World Champion.
