   Oct-19-21 Caruana vs Shankland, 2021 (replies)
 
DouglasGomes: 45. e6 Rg3 46. Rxc5 Be7 allows 47. Rc7 with the intention to countersack when 47... Rg5 48. Rxe7 Rxf5+ 49. exf5 is winning more directly. Discussed by Shankland and the commentators was 46... Rg5. A possible continuation is, then: 47. Qf8+ Rg1+ 48. Ke2 Rxe6 49. Qf4 Be7 50. ...
 
   Oct-18-21 Vachier-Lagrave vs V Keymer, 2019
 
DouglasGomes: SF does not thinks this is completely equal for Black in the opening and middlegame, also giving 20. Rh3 as best move, playing for activity in the kingside. Just for notice, after 20...Qd5: <SF15dev +3.03 d41> 21. Qg4 (threat Bh6) g6 22.Qf4 h5 23.Rg3 Bd6 24.Nxg6 Bxf4 ...
 
   Oct-13-21 Karjakin vs Kramnik, 2018
 
DouglasGomes: After 24.. Be6: <SF: 2.51d41> 24.Be1 Rf8 25.Rb3 Qg4 26.Ke2 Bc4+ 27.Kd2 Qf4+ 28.Kc2 bxc6 29.Rh3 Kh8 30.Qd7 Bxb3+ 31.axb3 24. cxb7 is probably not the best, also the forcing variation given above doesn't give huge advantage, position is closer to a draw
 
   Oct-12-21 Robson vs Naroditsky, 2021 (replies)
 
DouglasGomes: 13.. Qe8 is often played but 14. Bg5 is a important positional idea that questions its soundness, trading dark squared bishops to fight for e5 square.
 
   Oct-12-21 Kramnik vs Kasparov, 2000
 
DouglasGomes: White was better through the game. I think Kramnik's play is decent enough for me not be interested in "direct" wins. 56. Qa8? is attempt to win by force but 56. Qd5 is better and objectively not Black is not drawing. Note that: 20.. f6 21. Bd3 fxe5 22. Bxb4 exd4 23. Rxd4 ...
 
   Oct-10-21 Caruana vs Bruzon Batista, 2021
 
DouglasGomes: White's opening conception is not that good, honestly. I think he was worse after 14. f3
 
   Oct-09-21 Kavalek vs Suttles, 1974
 
DouglasGomes: Bishops don't stand well against the wall of pawns. j9. e5! is a good strike and we can oppose light-square bishops with Bf3. Something 9. e5 dxe5 10. Nxe6 e6 11. Bf3 Qc8 Bf4 looks fine for White. However the sac is total nonsense, 19. b4 (threat b5) c6 20. Bxe6 fxe6 21. Bxd6 ...
 
   Oct-09-21 Smyslov vs Euwe, 1948
 
DouglasGomes: 36... Nb6 would put pressure on d5 allows Black to play f5/fxe4, which gives great drawing chances. 38... Nb6 was again called for. After that Smyslov played very well, nothing very plausible for Black.
 
   Oct-07-21 Duda vs Wojtaszek, 2018
 
DouglasGomes: 2... Ne4 is being quite overrated by kibitzers, modern theory say White is better or slightly better there. After 4. c4, correct move is 4... e5. The game would eventually descend to a tactical melee where getting a good Knight over a Bad bishop is a irrelevant concept.
 
   Oct-07-21 Kasparov vs Kramnik, 2000
 
DouglasGomes: <24...f5?! 25.exf5 Be5 the rook is forced to go over to a passive position, and Black will win back one of the pawns very soon: 26.Rc1 (26.Ra7?! Bc8 27.g4 Kd7 28.Ke3 Bxc3) 26...Bf6 27.Kg3 Be5+ (inferior is 27...Bc8 28.Kf4 Bxh4 29.g3 Bf6 30.g4 hxg4 fxg4 Kd6 ).> After 26. ...
