   Jun-02-15 Granda Zuniga vs Y Gruenfeld, 2006 (replies)
 
Murphinsky: This game, among others probably, shows why the critical variation of this mainline continues with 19...Rf8! cutting out the Bf4 defense and after 20.h6! Bh8 white intends to give the queen after black plays ...Ng4 and white has three pieces for the queen in a very dynamic ...
 
   Sep-07-14 M A Jensen vs M Leutwyler, 2014
 
Murphinsky: Calling the bluff, while complicated, gave black a nice advantage that can be translated to a win with even the smallest inaccuracy by white. Thus, 13...axb5! 14.Bxg7 (the point of the sacrifice) Bxg7 15.Nxg7 Kd7 16.Qxf7 Qg8! and the queen's should come off (else black is ...

Murphinsky: A theoretically important game, with improvements for both sides!

Murphinsky: Also, I am not such a huge fan of 21...Bd6. The idea seems to be better executed via 21...h5, threatening h4 and Ne4, and the importance of the move order is that 22.h4 Bd6! and now f3 is not available because the knight will hang and black seems to have a cleaner version of the ...
 
   Jul-15-14 V Gunina vs V Cmilyte, 2013
 
Murphinsky: After 20...Nb5 it seems already that black has equalized and begins to play for an advantage in the near future. A fine game from Cmilyte. I wonder if white took on e5 in fear of some f5-f4 plan, shutting in the bishop on h2. I wonder what a more ambitious plan could have been ...
