   Feb-16-18 D Yuffa vs Bologan, 2015 (replies)
trnbg: way too easy for Friday.
   Feb-02-18 Larsen vs Najdorf, 1968 (replies)
trnbg: Were the last moves of the game really made on the board? Then I wonder why Larsen didn't resign after 37...Rxh3, at the latest. Perhaps he was in extreme zeitnot.
   Jan-24-18 Vogt vs G Kuzmin, 1971 (replies)
trnbg: <Pasker: After 1...Rxe4! 32.dxe4 Rxc5! 33.Rxc5 and now Qa7 or Qxe4 both wins material. Qxe4 threatens Qe8 mate and Qe3 + forking the rook. There is no defense.> This is not correct. After Qxe4 White can defend with 34.Qf3. Then Black has nothing better than perpetual check ...
   Jan-12-18 C Van Buskirk vs D B Gurevich, 1987 (replies)
trnbg: why not simply 29...Nxe3? The endgame after 30.Qxe3 dxe5 31.fxe5 Qxe5+ 32.QxQ dxe5 should be an easy win for Black.
   Aug-25-17 D Zagorskis vs C Gabriel, 1997 (replies)
trnbg: I considered 35.-Nf5, which seems to work well after 36.Qxg3 Nxg3+ 37.Kg1 Rh6 38.Kf2 Rh1, and White can hardly prevent mate on f1. However, after 36.exf5 Rh6+ 37.Kg1 Qh2+ 38.Kf1 Qh1+ 39.Qg1, it's over...
   Mar-18-16 Caruana vs Naiditsch, 2014 (replies)
trnbg: I went with 36... Ne3, which should win at least the exchange, e.g. 37.Rxb7 Nxc2 38.Rxb6 axb6; or 37.Rxe3 Qxc7!, and White can't take on c7 because of the backrange mate threat. Or am I wrong?
   Aug-12-15 S Agdestein vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
trnbg: I agree with >BxChess<: 26...Ne5! 27.Qh3 Qd8!, which is clearly winning. By the way, isn't Qd8 a very elegant move, definitely more elegant than 27... Nd3 or 27... Nf3?
   Jul-13-15 Carlsen vs Gelfand, 2011 (replies)
trnbg: I don't get the pun...
   Mar-13-15 Svidler vs Kramnik, 2014 (replies)
trnbg: <al wazir> on 46... g4, White has 47. Re3 and wins (the black rook is lost, as the white e-pawn is no longer pinned).
   Jul-27-14 F A Hoffmann vs Alexander Petrov, 1844 (replies)
trnbg: What if White had played 17.Qb3 (instead of 17.Nxe6)? With Qb3 White gains time to retreat his king to h3, and I can't see a forced win for black.
