   Oct-12-22 Niemann vs Robson, 2022 (replies)
 
BwanaVa: LivBlockade...I had the same thought. Looking at the engine over on Chess24 apparently Black has adequate compensation. He picks up a tempo with ...Qb6 hitting Rook and b2 pawn, potentially another tempo with Rd8 hitting the queen, and can pick up another tempo by holding off ...Ba6
 
   Sep-30-22 D Arutinian vs D Doric, 2006 (replies)
 
BwanaVa: I was thinking if 36.Bxg6 hxg6 37.Qxg6+ Kh8 38.Bg7+ Kg8 then 39. Bg7-f6+ (cutting off e7) Kf8 (forced) 40. Qh6+ and mate next move (either 40...Rg7 41. Qxg7# or 40...Kg8 41. Qh8#.
 
   Aug-08-22 S Gagare vs G Shweta, 2008
 
BwanaVa: As Richard O'Keefe would have said, "The Kavalek Bucktooth can be problematical"
 
   Jul-13-22 K Rogoff vs Bellon Lopez, 1969
 
BwanaVa: 10.c4 was a widely played line BITD against Q-side castling in the KIA>
 
   Apr-21-22 Larsen vs R Byrne, 1973
 
BwanaVa: This game is not listed as one of Byrne's brilliancies, but it should be noted that this win gave him just enough room to stay ahead of Larsen, Smejkal, and Huebner for the third qualifier spot out of the Leningrad Interzonal.
 
   Oct-22-21 Robson vs Fedorowicz, 2010 (replies)
 
BwanaVa: Fed peak rating-FIDE 2574 (1999), USCF 2672 (approx 1993).
 
   Oct-13-21 Petrosian vs Estrin, 1968 (replies)
 
BwanaVa: I would note Spassky's full comment after the 1966 World Championship match: "It is to Petrosian's advantage that his opponents never know when he is suddenly going to play like Mikhail Tal."
 
   Aug-30-21 Xiong vs Caruana, 2021
 
BwanaVa: Also...not a Kings Indian Attack. Some type of reversed Gruenfeld, perhaps...
 
   Aug-18-21 Suttles vs R Cosulich, 1974
 
BwanaVa: After 22...e4xd3 23. c5 Nmoves 24 Bxb7 the Qside pawn roller will be too much to stop.
 
   Aug-03-21 Beliavsky vs Nakamura, 2009 (replies)
 
BwanaVa: Regarding the discussion of the en passant rules on 10.30.2011 above and why En Passant is limited to pawns... En Passant was created when rules were changed to allow a Pawn to move two squares on its first move. Complaints were heard that this mean that a pawn on the opposing fifth
