   Jul-31-22 Karpov vs Najdorf, 1982
Atking: 47...Kh8?? was a suicide move. 47...Rb2 for 48...Rb1 or 48...c3 looks at least equal.
   Jul-30-22 Botvinnik vs Reshevsky, 1948 (replies)
Atking: Thanks <KEG> for this detailled analysis! I just add a positional consideration - The kind of Vasily Smyslov might haved played - 25...Rac5! as 26.Nxa4 (Esle 26...b5) 26...R5c6 let Black pieces on a clearly better formation for a pawn of dubious value "a3". Black seems to me ...
   Jul-29-22 A Stefanova vs A Skripchenko, 2000
Atking: Strange opening 8...b6! opens b file and diagonal f8-b4 on the weakened Queen side.
   Jul-25-22 SuperUnited Croatia (2022) (replies)
Atking: Magnus won it. Share second MVL and Firouzja. So and Nepomniachtchi share places 4 and 5.
   Jul-23-22 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Atking: <So getting to 2900 is a big motivation for him but defending his WCC title isn't?!> I can understand that. Magnus Carlsen has already won 5 World Champion matches. But he is not yet establish at 2900 Elo. As said Garry Kasparov "Human needs goals".
   Jul-16-22 Franz Motzko (replies)
Atking: Thanks <Karpova> !
   Jul-15-22 Pillsbury vs F W Doerr, 1895 (replies)
Atking: Indeed <An Englishman> I suspect 15.g4?! doesn't make sense as Bg6 is better placed here. Simply 15.0-0 or 15.d5 for Nd4. Yet it was a simultanous performance, usually the master wants to "kill" as quicky as possible a lot of boards. This could explain the aggressivity of ...
   Jul-15-22 I Zakharevich vs I Nikolayev, 1985
Atking: 11.Bh6 with 12.0-0-0 as 11...Bxg2 12.Bxf7+ should win quite quickly 12...KxB 13.Qh5+ Ke6 14.0-0-0 BxR? 15.Re1+ mates
   Jul-12-22 Duda vs Xiong, 2022
Atking: Sure. A prophylactic move to prevent f3 could be 43...Be5
   Jul-09-22 V Artemiev vs M Kobalia, 2022
Atking: Yes it's impressive how a "bad" Bishop becomes a decisive piece. Around move 25th Black has at least equal chance (if not a better ones as 26...QxQ+ "simply" 27.KxQ b4 28.Bb2 Ng4 then Black Rooks come to "a" file Ra7-Ra2 Rf8-Ra8) Then Ba3-Bc5 in which even pawn up Black is trying to ...
