   Mar-24-20 K Alekseenko vs Giri, 2020 (replies)
Eyal: <I find it very odd that Alekseenko saw that <88.Nf2+ Kxh4 89.Kf4> would draw but didn't see that <89.Nh1+ Kxh4 90.Kf4> would do the same.> Apparently Giri felt the same way - here he is, immediately following Alekseenko's resignation, sadistically pointing at the h1 ...
   Mar-23-20 Nepomniachtchi vs Ding Liren, 2020 (replies)
Eyal: A couple of moves before the 33...Rxb6 save, another amazing tactical save for Black was missed with <31...Qf5!> (instead of Qg4). Black is threatening both mate on f3 and a capture on b6, so 32.Nxd4 Qg4 33.Qxd5 Bf6 34.Rb4 Bxd4 35.Rxd4 Rxb6!! [DIAGRAM] <All> of Black's ...
   Mar-23-20 World Championship Candidates (2020/21) (replies)
Eyal: A new plot twist - nepo mentioned at the end of his post-game interview that he's coughing and not feeling very well.
   Mar-23-20 Nepomniachtchi vs H Wang, 2020 (replies)
Eyal: <If 29...Nf7 30.Qh2 Qd6 it is White who has to worry about holding a draw. Although 32...Qd7 was the losing move, 29...Kg8, played after 8 seconds of thought, led to Wang's loss.> Nepo mentioned 29...Nf7 in the press conference - he was intending to play 30.c5, which is much more

Eyal: Hi, <Boomie> - thanks!
   Mar-22-20 K Alekseenko vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2020 (replies)
Eyal: The position after 16.Rxg4 has actually been reached a few months ago in Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2019 (with an extra move, since Bg5 & h6 were inserted there). In that game, MVL played ...Bf8? (which should be losing, but still went on to win); since then he analyzed the position
   Mar-22-20 Ding Liren vs Caruana, 2020 (replies)
Eyal: <zipperbear> Thanks.
   Mar-21-20 Vachier-Lagrave vs Grischuk, 2020 (replies)
Eyal: <any improvements for Black there?> No, it's a forced win for White. After <30.Re4!> he has to see several additional variations, though: 30...b5 31.Rxc4! bxc4 32.Rxf7+ Kd8 33.Ne6+ and Black's position collapses. Also, 30...Nb6 31.Ba3+ Ke8 32.Nxf7! Bxf7 33.e6 Bxh5 34.Ref4! ...
   Mar-20-20 Grischuk vs H Wang, 2020 (replies)
Eyal: <Grischuk played well and had a big advantage until he got into time trouble.> Oh, how many times have we heard this sentence...
   Mar-19-20 K Alekseenko vs Nepomniachtchi, 2020 (replies)
Eyal: Alekseenko missed a great shot with the thematic <26.Bxg6!!> - he said after the game that he tried to calculate it, but he had only a few minutes remaining to the time control by this stage and he couldn't calculate to the end. It doesn't win by force since Black doesn't have to
