   May-01-17 Browne vs V Rao, 1987 (replies)
tonim: I used to play this variation with black pieces and I dont like 16...b6. I think 16...a6 is much better because white cant win exchange back with Bh6 + Bb5, bishop can go to f7 instead of d7 preventing both e5 and any king side attack, and black plan is simple b5, Rc8, Nc4 with active
   Apr-18-17 M Bosiocic vs R Rapport, 2017
tonim: Marin could win with 58.Nb3 and share 1st place. He probably thought that NvsB endgame is easier to win but in pawn endgame there is forced win. One variation is 58.Nb3 Kf5 59.N:d2 cd2 60.K:d2 Ke4 61.Kc3 h4 62.gh4 K:f4 63.Kd4 Kf5 64.Kd5 Kf4 65.Kd6 Kf5 66.h5 Kg5 67.Ke7.
   Feb-20-17 D Harika vs N Dzagnidze, 2017
tonim: 39... gf5?? is a blunder, instead after 39...B:b2 black is OK e.g. 40.Bd3 Rc1.
   Feb-17-17 A Ushenina vs Tan Zhongyi, 2017
tonim: Also 61. Rg1 with threat Ra1# is easy win for Anna, if 61...Ka2 62. Rb1 and black will lose her rook or get mated.
   Jan-23-17 A Espeli vs Andersen, 1952 (replies)
tonim: After 13.d4 maybe even better is 13...Bg7 14.Kd2 (otherwise B:d4, B:b2, B:a1) Bh6+ and black gained tempo compared to 13... Bh6
   Jan-15-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1960 (replies)
tonim: From book "Boris Spaski to move" by D. Bjelica: At age of 12 Spaski was recognized in USSR as very talented chess player and Tolush was assigned to be his personal trainer. Tolush was not impressed with kid's play and he ordered Spaski: "You play to calm and steady with no passion. ...
   Jan-06-17 I Nemet vs Marjanovic, 1977
tonim: Nemet missed simple 39.Qe8+ Kh7 40.Rg5 with mate
   Dec-31-16 Tal vs Janosevic, 1966
tonim: I think if white plays 42.Kg4 there is no more threat of Rh4+ so black can play 42... Rf8 and simplify to easy Q vs R+B ending. After 42.K:h4 Qh7+ 43.Kg4 g5 black trades queens and wins with his b pawn. 42.Kg2 h3+ 43.Kf2 (Kg1 Qd1+ is the same) Qd2+ 44.Kf3 Q:f4+ 45. Q:f4(or Kf4) Rf8 ...
   Dec-28-16 Ivanchuk vs Dreev, 2016 (replies)
tonim: Did Dreev lost on time? After 50... Rh8+ 51.Kg4 (if Kg5 Qf5#, Kg3 Qh2 ) Qh2 black is winning
   Aug-07-16 Linares (1994)
tonim: Great performance by Karpov is certanly main feature of this tournament, but there are 2 other amazing facts: - very low percentage of draws (33/91), cca 36% - worst tournament for Beliavsky ever, only 2/13(+0 -9 =4)
