   Oct-20-19 A Esipenko vs G Jones, 2019
woldsmandriffield: 21..Na6 instead of capturing 21..exd5 another strange decision.
   Oct-19-19 Capablanca vs Euwe, 1931
woldsmandriffield: 13 g4 was a strong move. Capablancaís notes omit the refutation of 13..Bxg4 14 fxg4 Qe4 15 Kf2 Qxh1 which is 16 Bxd6 cxd6 17 Nf3 Nd7 18 Rb1 Nf6 19 Bd3 Nxg4+ 20 Kg3 The later plan with Rf5 backfired though and it is hard to prove a win after 30 Bc1? Nc7!
   Oct-08-19 Ulf Andersson vs Kasparov, 1982
woldsmandriffield: Kasparovís career record against Andersson was 5-0 and this game was one of very few chances for Ulf to win a game. He should have declined the draw offer!
   Sep-27-19 Fischer vs Spassky, 1966 (replies)
woldsmandriffield: Interesting to compare the Piatigorskysí sponsorship of chess in the 1960s with the Sinquefelds today.
   Sep-16-19 Fischer vs Wade, 1965 (replies)
woldsmandriffield: Uncharacteristic play from Fischer. From this: [DIAGRAM] To this: [DIAGRAM] in moves 29-39.
   Sep-16-19 A Firouzja vs D Dubov, 2018
woldsmandriffield: 17 Nb4 or 18 Nb4 was a tactic for Firouzja keeping a reasonable position. The h3-g4 plan was a bit weakening. After 18..Bxd5! the line 19 cxd5 Nd4 20 Bf1 Nf6 21 Bxd4 cxd4 22 e4! (attacks the Qa6) 22..Qb7 23 Qb1 may not be too bad for White. The continuation chosen (19 ...
   Sep-16-19 D Dubov vs A Firouzja, 2017
woldsmandriffield: [DIAGRAM] 124..Ra6 draw agreed. Dubov can never extricate his Rh5.
   Sep-14-19 D Dubov vs A Firouzja, 2019
woldsmandriffield: Dubrov probably regrets 22 bxc4. Instead 22 Rc1! looks promising.
   Sep-14-19 K Peebo vs Beliavsky, 1968
woldsmandriffield: 15-year-old Beliavsky misplayed this interesting ending. If you are coaching promising juniors, you might like to show the following position to them. [DIAGRAM] The game continued 55..Kf3 56 Kg1 Rg2+ 57 Kh1 Rb2 58 Rg5 Rb1+ 59 Kh2 Rb2+ 60 Kh3 How many mistakes were made? ...
   Sep-12-19 K Peebo vs Kupreichik, 1968
woldsmandriffield: Total white collapse moves 14 through 17. The game is probably gone already after 14 cxd4? opening up the position with the white King stuck in the centre. Peebo could grovel with 16 Kf1 or the desperate 17 Be3 Qf6 18 o-o Rad8 19 Qxd8 Rxd8 20 Rxd8+ Qxd8 21 Bxa6 but ...
