   Mar-02-21 Giri vs V S Gujrathi, 2021 (replies)
Masterhep: White missed 27.Rd6!!, which looks like it leads to mate in a few moves. If 27..Bxg4, Rxh6 is an unusual and esthetic mate. If 27..Bd6, N(e)xf6+ mates in 2. If 27..Rxg7, 28.Rxg7+ and 29.Rxh6 is mate. 27..f6 is probably best, and 28. Rf6! seems to seal the deal. If 28..Bc5+ ...
   Feb-18-21 Harikrishna vs A Donchenko, 2021
Masterhep: In response to 0ZeR0’s post, after 42.Rxg5, White wins after 42...Qxc3 43. Rg8 Qxc4 44. Qg5+ Kd7 45. Rd8+ Kc7 46. Qe7+ Kb6 47. Rb8+ Kc6 (Black gets mated after Ka6) 48. Rc8+.
   Jul-31-20 Carlsen vs Leko, 2020
Masterhep: One possibility is 26.Qc2..Qe8 27.Qc5 and Black will have trouble saving the a pawn, his Knight, or the Kingside.
   Sep-04-14 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
Masterhep: Does White want to play Qe2, Bg4, Bf5 (or Be6+), to allow the White queen to enter the Kingside?
   Jul-19-14 Caruana vs Adams, 2014 (replies)
Masterhep: I like this move better than f4 & the e5 pawn is poison after either 17..Re5 18 Bf4 or I think better yet, 18 Nc7! (which is also better than Nb6+..ab 19. Rxd7..Re7) ..Kxc7 19 Bf4
   Apr-05-14 Ding Liren vs Lin Chen, 2014
Masterhep: If 33..Rc8 34.Rxf6!
   Sep-24-12 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2012 (replies)
Masterhep: Wow - what a game!
   May-19-12 Nakamura vs Seirawan, 2012 (replies)
Masterhep: At a minimum, Black will end up losing his queen pawn. The middle will open up, and it won't be pretty.
   Jun-21-09 Spassky vs D Hepner, 1986 (replies)
Masterhep: I’m Duffy Hepner and was surprised to find this web site w/ my old game against Boris Spassky. Yes, it was the shortest, worst played loss of my chess career. It was played in the 3d round of the US Open; when we had 1 ½ - ½ scores. BTW, “Marmot,” I don’t recall losing ...
