   Dec-07-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
 
Muttley101: <MrMeLad: More and more it looks like the only possible strategy against him is the one Karjakin and Caruana tried, to to go as drawish as possible and wait for him to over push.> I don't think either player took that approach. Karjakin outplayed Carlsen in games, and ...
 
   Dec-07-21 Gavrilov vs S Ilandzis, 2001 (replies)
 
Muttley101: <saturn2: I was to hasty and took 30.Bxf8> Seems to be a more sadistic alternative, in that it allows black to continue but suffer immensely in a hopeless position. Better an end without suffering than suffering without an end :D
 
   Nov-16-21 Iturrizaga Bonelli vs A Chandra, 2018 (replies)
 
Muttley101: <Brenin: 36 ... Rd8 was the losing move; Black can defend better with 36 ... Ra8, e.g. 37 Nb6 Ra6, or 37 c6 Ra7 38 Rc2 Rc7 39 Nb8 a3 40 Na6 a2 41 Rxa2 Rxc6.> 36 ... Ra8 might be a better defence but as far as I can see the ending is still lost. Don't use an engine here so ...

Muttley101: <Dionysius1: Hi <Tamar>. I don't see that. Doesn't 29...Rc8 get out of the fork and discovered attack easily enough?> 28...Bc5 29. Na6 Rc8 30. Nxc5 Rxc5 31 Bd6#; 30. Nxc5 also attacks the Rb7.
 
   Nov-07-21 Firouzja vs D Howell, 2021 (replies)
 
Muttley101: <saffuna: <31... Qc6!! is a stunner that can cause a player to lose focus from a completely winning position.> When I've read analysis by the players where they discuss what they saw at the moment, they typically see back-rank threats, see moves like 31...Qc6. But maybe ...
 
   Nov-06-21 F W Viney vs H Gook, 1926 (replies)
 
Muttley101: <An Englishman: Good Evening: After 5.Bb5!, Black might already have serious problems.> No, black is fine after 5. Bb5.
 
   Oct-30-21 D Gurevich vs Seirawan, 2003 (replies)
 
Muttley101: < al wazir: 33...Nf2+ 34. Nxf2 Bxa3 35. Rxa3 Rd1+ 36. Nxd1 Rxd1+ 37. Nf1 Rxf1+ 38. Kh2 Qg1+ 39. Kg3 Rf2 40. a6 Qxg2+ 41. Kh4 Rd2 42. a7 Rd4+ 43. f4 Qf2+ 44. Kg4 f5+ 45. Kg5 Qxf4+ 46. Kf6 Qxh6 47. a8=Q+ Qf8+ 48. Qxf8+ Kxf8 49. Ra8+ 1:0.> Imaginative sacrifice to deflect and ...
 
   Oct-07-21 Vachier-Lagrave vs So, 2021 (replies)
 
Muttley101: <HeMateMe> Black couldn't play 39 ... Q:f6 because the queen is protecting the rook at d7.
 
   Sep-19-21 I Figler vs N Kasimov, 1967 (replies)
 
Muttley101: <al wazir> You're welcome, thank you also, because your post prompted me to look a bit more at the endgame. It is still won if black plays 60 ...Kg2, but there is a lot more content to that winning line because white can now block the black king by playing b5 and Kb4. The ...
 
   Sep-17-21 Lombardy vs R J Gross, 1966 (replies)
 
Muttley101: <Brenin>: This game is a QGA, as in quite gross aberration, not a QGD.> The opening classification is correct, as it transposes to a position that would normally arise out of a Chigorin defence to the queen's gambit. If you want to be picky, it should be "Queen's gambit,
