   Jan-07-18 Carlsen vs W So, 2017
tonsillolith: Zugzwang ztrikes!
   Jan-07-18 W So vs Carlsen, 2017
tonsillolith: So - "This is going to be a long day."
   Jan-01-18 Grischuk vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
tonsillolith: <37...b6!> The point is not to protect the b-pawn, but to block White from guarding the important e3 square, from which Black's queen can shepherd the d-pawn as well as guard the long diagonal.
   Jan-01-18 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
tonsillolith: <19...g5> may put White in trouble. I can't see any concrete variations where White gets a successful attack for the lost material, and the computer analysis in this app can't find anything either. It suggests g5 is best and actually gives a moderate advantage to Black. ...

tonsillolith: Despite the lavish praise for Kramnik now, I expect the haters will be going on soon enough about how Kramnik is washed up and needs to retire. Just wait until his next loss. He sure has the longevity though. There are very few "old folks" who used to be in the top echelon when
   Dec-20-17 Grischuk vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
tonsillolith: Strong offensive play by Caruana and strong defensive play by Grischuk.
   Dec-18-17 Szabo vs Wade, 1949
tonsillolith: <After 12. Bg5, why didn't Black return the Knight to f6?> To me it looks like Black originally moved 11...Ne8 to control/blockade the d6 square ahead of the pawn, and would like to continue with that plan. Secondly, Black puts his own knight into a pin and immediately ...
