I highly recommend the Yugoslav chess periodical Ĺ ahovski Informator (Chess Informant) for quality analysis on hundreds of current games by many of the world's leading players. I have been reading it for many years and have yet to find a more useful resource.

0ZeR0: Congratulations to Ju Wenjun! It was a fantastic match all-around as noted by <metatron2>, and hard-fought. I definitely recommend checking out the games for anyone that hasn't been following.
   Jul-07-23 A Planinc vs S Puc, 1969
0ZeR0: An attack need not be sound to work.
   Jun-10-23 Euwe vs B van Trotsenburg, 1919

0ZeR0: <stone free or die> Well done post showing the various ways we might compare players. Interesting website and graph as well. I am somewhat surprised that Lasker doesn't quite reach the heights of the aforementioned three players according to it.
