   Jan-20-22 A Zaitsev vs Adorjan, 1971 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Is 53. ...Rf4+ possible? If Kg7 then Black captures with check. If Kg5 then ... Rd4 sets up mutual defence in the middle and makes it harder for White to advance the K, though loss of the back rank probably spells doom in the long run (Black cannot get his K into the K-side ...
   Jan-20-22 Firouzja vs Lupulescu, 2019 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I was also with <Brenin>, and didn't see the attack on the B as the game proceeded to do. None of the 'obvious' things seemed to work, so woe for me ...
   Jan-19-22 Anand vs Adams, 2005 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I suppose the pun is an example of dry wit ...
   Jan-19-22 O Bernstein vs F G Jacob, 1907 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found the R check and Ne5+ way in. A need to be precise to avoid a rescue by the Black Q.
   Jan-18-22 E Delmar vs F Roser, 1876 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Saw the gameline after a little thought; there seems no salvation for Black in other routes (e.g. ... Rf7).
   Jan-16-22 Carlsen vs Giri, 2022 (replies)
AlicesKnight: The sacrifice at move 16 would just not occur to us ordinary mortals. Ten moves later Black (a P up from move 6) has lost 2 Ps and the rest are isolated. But before that, 7.Na3, allowing the B to take and cripple the Q-side pawns, seems a surprise (cf. Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 ...
   Jan-14-22 M Parligras vs C Ionescu, 2005
AlicesKnight: I found the fxe6 - xf7+ route, but missed the significance of Nf7 (thought Black gave the R up too easily until I saw the K/Q fork). Not spectacular but a good example of finding the best line where there are several temptations.
   Jan-13-22 C Jaffe vs A Souweine, 1910 (replies)
AlicesKnight: <Teyss> Achtung! Donner und Blitzen! <Ironmanth> Agree, interesting, back-and-forth game.
   Jan-13-22 P Dubinin vs Veresov, 1940 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I saw the ... Bxg2+ and ... f3 game line, but, like others (as I see now), thought White could do better not taking - Black remains better but not yet conclusive. Moving the B from the h3-d7 diagonal has perils for Black if checking slows down (Rxg7+ and Rd7+).
   Jan-12-22 A Grabinsky vs Shimanov, 2016 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I found the gameline, seemingly forced from here. Something about it reminds me (in mirror-image) of the finish to Pillsbury vs Lasker, 1896 - perhaps it's the redundant white Rs. There also seems to be a forced win after 58.gxf3.
