   Sep-24-19 Svidler vs Adams, 1997
smendel: According to Stockfish, Adams should have tried 20 Nxe3 and tried to put pressure on the d pawn. The natural Ra8 gives white a +2 edge, allowing defensive resources to drain as a R is swapped and B pair lost. 46 Be7 instead of Ne7 allows the g pawn to fall; as hcgflynn noted, it's ...
   Sep-24-19 Anand vs Adams, 1997
smendel: Adams tries 17. ... Bg4 here, which he beat Svidler with. H5 is slow and ineffective, and Re8 allowed Qxa6, after which Adams would have been in real trouble at +1.6 according to Stockfish...
   Sep-10-19 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927
smendel: The computer thinks 25. Ra1 was Capa's best chance.
   Sep-04-19 Lautier vs Adams, 1991
smendel: Lautier blows a promising position, first by kc1, which allows Adams to free his light-squared bishop, before then swapping off his other bishop so that Adams' light-squared bishop totally dominates its opposite on b1.
   Aug-21-19 N R Vignesh vs K Rathnakaran, 2019
smendel: Rxg4! NB that Rxb2 is impossible since the king escapes to f4...
   Aug-21-19 K Rathnakaran vs V Varshini, 2019
smendel: Superb game by Ratnakaran, with the black pieces buzzing furiously around the white king, unable to strike...
   Aug-21-19 K Rathnakaran vs D T Singgih, 2019
smendel: Nice attack by the Indian Tal, but perhaps black was in time trouble and blundered a drawn ending.
   Aug-20-19 J Vetter vs R Oortwijn, 1997
smendel: 5... exd is better.
   Aug-08-19 Gary Quillan (replies)
smendel: Gary Quillan is a notorious fraudster, mentiined by name in the Times:
   Jun-02-19 Oll vs Shaked, 1997
