   Dec-31-17 J Weggen vs C Schoppen, 2017
Alphastar: 13. d6 is dubious at best. Instead 13. O-O-O is about equal.

Alphastar: That isn't me. There are some pictures on the website of the tournament though:
   Dec-31-17 S Kuipers vs J Weggen, 2017
Alphastar: Also I suspect that the endgame is manageable for black if I play 33. ...Bf8! instead of Rce8?
   Dec-31-17 N Lubbe vs J Weggen, 2017
Alphastar: White lost on time, his flag fell as he played 35. Qxb4. Though the position is completely lost, e.g. 35. ...Qc1+ 36. Kc3 Qa1+ 37. Kd2 Qe1+ wins the white queen. 34. Re2?? loses on the spot, but after 34. Ne2 white is easily winning.
   Jan-02-15 Shabalov vs I Krush, 2004 (replies)
Alphastar: I missed that white has a check 40. Qxd6+. I kept trying to figure out where to place the queen on the e-file, and it ended up fruitless.
   Dec-12-14 M Oleksienko vs Golubev, 2007
Alphastar: <Nf3em> I think in that line the pawn on h4 is actually a white bishop and he can then play Bf2, keeping a piece against 2 pawns.
   Dec-12-14 Ribli vs Smyslov, 1982 (replies)
Alphastar: What is the pun about?
   Nov-25-13 Carlsen vs Radjabov, 2008 (replies)
Alphastar: Without the c4-pawn, the final position would be a mate in 3 for black...
   Nov-14-13 E Limayo vs G Armani, 1999 (replies)
Alphastar: <dakgootje> Things become interesting after 5. ...b5 6. Bf1! however.
   Nov-09-13 D Barua vs Gulko, 1993 (replies)
Alphastar: <morfishine> I missed it too, dont feel too bad!
