   Jan-27-20 B Adhiban vs Eljanov, 2017 (replies)
Crowaholic: 55. ..a2, while still winning, is bad play that allows white to greatly delay the mate with 56. Kb2! Bxc4 57. Bf3! I don't see any strategy here for Black that doesn't involve promoting the g pawn, which costs a lot of time. Note how, even after trading the e pawn for the white ...
   Nov-14-18 D Perrett vs I Efimov, 2008 (replies)
Crowaholic: "NO! after 27.Kh3 NOT ..Qf3 but the immediate ..Qg4# !!" This is an illegal move. You are apparently confusing 26. ..Re2+ 27. Kh3 Qf3 28. (any) Qg4# with 26. ..Re2+ 27. Nxe2 Qxe2+ 28. Kh3 Qg4#
   Aug-14-17 N Zwirs vs P V Nandhidhaa, 2016 (replies)
Crowaholic: Ng6 is not mate in three because of the ..Qxh2+ zwischenzug.
   Jun-01-17 J Sith vs Timoshenko, 1994 (replies)
Crowaholic: FWIW, Deep Shredder 13 considers 24. Rad1 to be a poor move, ostensibly for preventing Nd1 after ..b4 (with a chance to block off the c5-g1 diagonal), and suggests 24. Rc2. Also, in the line as played, 26. Qe1 appears to be the "least worst" option.
   Aug-15-14 FIBChess vs Falcon, 2004 (replies)
Crowaholic: "So I fibbed about being a dove…" <Nick46> No true scotsman would ever resign either. Kidding aside, desktop chess programs have had the ability to offer their resignation for quite some time, though they typically don't resign unilaterally as a human player would. The ...
   Aug-22-12 Alburt vs Kasparov, 1978 (replies)
Crowaholic: <Abdel Irada>: In your line (3.2), 61. ..Kf3 is superior to ..Ke1: 61. Kh2 Kf3 62. Kh1 f1=Q+ 63. Kh2 Qg2#
   Aug-20-12 Mikhalevski vs R Gardner, 2012 (replies)
Crowaholic: Qe7+ or Qd8+? I'd say the move doesn't matter as long as it has the orthodoxy's approval.
   Jul-02-10 P Wiese vs H Schulz, 2007 (replies)
Crowaholic: I missed the point of the Rf1 pin and refrained from separating my rooks with 24. ..Bd5+. And I thought 24. ..R8d2 would work, but 25. h4 seems to be the perfect antidote. In the correct move order, h4 does not help White, as Once and patzer2 have demonstrated.
   Jun-28-10 R Vera vs A Lesiege, 2003 (replies)
Crowaholic: <goldfarbdj: 26. f6 is met by 26. ... Qc5+ 27. Kh1 Qf8.> No, it's not. 27. ..Qf8 is an illegal move in this line. So Black is pretty much finished after 25. f5! because he will either lose a rook or his king. As for GER:ENG… the German commentator really confused me. ...
   Jun-10-10 B Esen vs Vitiugov, 2010 (replies)
Crowaholic: <So one plausible line would be 31...Rf3 32. Qc2? Rxc3 33. Qxc3 Qxe2 and black wins a rook.> I would rather say 32. ..h3! 33. g3 Rxc3 34. Qxc3 Qxe2 with a quick checkmate. (If White does not play 34. Qxc3, Black responds with ..Qf3, e.g. 34. Qd1 Qf3! 35. Qf1 Rc1, or by ...
