   Mar-17-13 Ashley vs Nakamura, 2003 (replies)
 
FlintEastwood: Rd1 Qe3+ is crushing!
 
   Jan-20-13 T Bowdler vs H Conway, 1788 (replies)
 
FlintEastwood: Great game! But Qxg7 looks like a pretty terrible move. Down two rooks, no amount of pawns will compensate! It's mate or nothing.
 
   Jan-08-13 Zaiatz vs E Paehtz, 2007 (replies)
 
FlintEastwood: Maybe this was Alekhine's idea against Capa: Play h6, sac a pawn, and hope for a typo on the scoresheet :D
 
   Nov-07-12 Karpov vs Unzicker, 1974 (replies)
 
FlintEastwood: That game is the embodiment of Karpovian style! Pure torture, Karpov is a sadist.
 
   Nov-04-12 Maroczy vs Tarrasch, 1905 (replies)
 
FlintEastwood: I'm so confused and I have no engine to assist right now...why not 16. Qxf3? There are no discoveries causing back rank problems because white always has the reply Rxe8+ with tempo, followed by developing the knight, leaving the back rank defended. gxf3 simply looks suicidal. ...
 
   Oct-30-12 M Vachier-Lagrave vs E Postny, 2009 (replies)
 
FlintEastwood: Very interesting game! I guess the closed nature of the position flanks is what stops white from playing on. If he could bring the white bishop into the game he'd have some chances, but being a piece down and with his only other piece blocked out he has no way to break ...
 
   Oct-29-12 A Leniart vs Nakamura, 2009
 
FlintEastwood: People are quick to criticise, but remember white is "only" 2360 and he's playing Nakamura. Playing super-aggressively and hoping for a mistake is about the only chance, otherwise you'll just get outplayed technically in the middle game. I doubt he would play the same way ...
 
   Jan-30-12 Alekhine vs A Stephan, 1925 (replies)
 
FlintEastwood: Very easy, but also instructive. I do wonder why black played f5 though. With a knight on f4 it's hard to imagine that the pawn will go anywhere. At first glance I'd say he either needs to finish development or even consider exchanging white's bishop. f5 seems to achieve ...
 
   Dec-23-11 Renier Castellanos Rodriguez
 
FlintEastwood: For anyone that doesn't know already, Renier makes vids on a fairly regular basis for http://www.chessvideos.tv Well worth a watch...mostly he discusses hot new theoretical developments in his fave lines - usually Sicilian and King's Indian.
 
   Jul-26-11 Dunaev vs Petrosian, 1946 (replies)
 
FlintEastwood: Ahh...maybe I'm missing the point here, but white's play seems pretty terrible. Can't he play something like 26Nb1, just getting his pieces out the way. Then after 26...d4 27. Bf2 e3 28. Bxe3 dxe 29. Qxe3 white seems quite okay to me. Black shouldn't go for the pawn with ...
