   Dec-06-19 Seirawan vs Comet, 1996 (replies)
GlennOliver: I'm really not seeing what in this position forced a move-19 resignation by Black. I can see it is possible to analyse a White win over another 50+ moves, but do not see any immediate coup forcing resignation. What am I missing, please?
   Nov-28-19 Geller vs Portisch, 1967 (replies)
GlennOliver: The alternate defence, 22. ... Re6, falls to the Knight mate - 22. Qf6 Re6 23. Qh8+ Ke7 24. Nf5#
   Sep-21-19 Tartakower vs R Broadbent, 1946 (replies)
GlennOliver: Inspired attack AND defence, a lesser player than Tartakower might well not have seen this continuation through to the victory.
   Jul-28-19 Schlechter vs Swiderski, 1903 (replies)
GlennOliver: This is a win for Black, but it is by no means trivial to complete that win. Without precise play by Black, White has a number of opportunities to grasp the draw.
   Apr-18-19 Ljubojevic vs A Planinc, 1971
GlennOliver: The degree of innovation is almost suggestive of a composition rather than the over-the-board game which it actually was. Kudos to Planinc for such a brilliancy.
   Apr-17-19 T Malhotra vs T C O'Neill, 2009 (replies)
GlennOliver: 31. Ra7 loses the tempo and the game to 31. ... Rxg3+
   Apr-16-19 Staunton vs Anderssen, 1851 (replies)
GlennOliver: If 29. ... Kh8 rather than the text 29. ... Kf7, White has an advantage but the win over the board would not have been trivial.
   Apr-05-19 Glucksberg vs Najdorf, 1929 (replies)
GlennOliver: The initial Ng6 is readily recognised as a viable move, but the full continuation requires Najdorf's genius.
   Mar-25-19 A Esipenko vs Volodar Murzin, 2019
GlennOliver: Young Andrey Esipenko is a very innovative player, with potential to compete at the highest level.
   Mar-25-19 T Baron vs K Piorun, 2019 (replies)
GlennOliver: The game gives the impression that White was quickly outside his theoretical repertoire and never really gained a first foothold. After the most obvious continuation, 24. Qc5+, White gains the Knight in the exchange but is still a major piece down.
