   Jul-05-20 Vyzmanavin vs Ulibin, 1995 (replies)
 
NBZ: The best I could found, unfortunately, was the flawed combination 17. ... Nexf2 with the idea that 18. Nxf2? Ne3 wins back the bishop on g2. However, after the simple 18. Bxb7 Nh3+ 19. Kh1! (not Kf1 Ne3+) the best Black can do is 19. ... Ne3 "winning" a rook for two pieces, which all in
 
   Jul-04-20 Yifan Hou vs A Stefanova, 2007
 
NBZ: I get the feeling White misplayed the ending. In the position after 30. ... Rc1, one gets the strong feeling that White should be able to hold the rook ending. I am not sure exactly where Yifan went wrong but in general she played too passively. One concrete idea for White is to try to ...
 
   Jul-04-20 Ribli vs Unzicker, 1985 (replies)
 
NBZ: This is a strange puzzle, no? The most obvious sequence of moves (Qe3 Bxd1 Rxd1) looks strong for White. It is what White played in the game, and is also what 95% of players would play in this position in a normal game.
 
   Jun-24-20 S Krasnov vs Murey, 1966 (replies)
 
NBZ: Black could also play 31. ... Bg4 with the idea that 32. Bxg4 can also be met by 32. ... Ng3+ or the more prosaic 32. ... Rxg4 maintaining the threat of Ng3.
 
   Jun-23-20 Carlsen vs D Dubov, 2020 (replies)
 
NBZ: I did enjoy how Dubov "trapped" the White queen on a1 and forced its exchange with 30. ... Rb2, 31. ... Qc2 and 32. ... Qb1.
 
   Jun-21-20 Gipslis vs Csom, 1973 (replies)
 
NBZ: 18. Bb5 was my move as well. Taking the bishop must lose for Black, since after 18. ... Bxb5 Nxb5 the knight on d7 can't move due to the threat of Rd8+. I am not sure exactly what White should do after 18. Bb5 Qc7 19. Qb4+ Ke8, but with the Black king firmly stuck in the centre White ...
 
   Jun-11-20 C Polk vs M Sana, 2016 (replies)
 
NBZ: <Brenin>: You are absolutely right. I think he issue is that the 6-second SF analysis provided by CG can mess up sometimes because it does not analyze the position deeply enough. Here, if you ask SF to evaluate the position after Nh3+ Kf1, it rates it at only -1.32, but as soon as
 
   Jun-05-20 Ragozin vs P Romanovsky, 1927 (replies)
 
NBZ: <bcokugras> 18. Nxe4 Nxb4! is perhaps what White was worried about? Still, it looks a lot better than what happened to White in the game.
 
   May-26-20 Mamedyarov vs A Tasan, 2002 (replies)
 
NBZ: 42. Rc7+ is not that hard to see, but after 42. ... Kg8 it is crucial to get the follow-up right. If 43. Qh6?? Rxg3+! mates Likewise if 43. Rg7+ Kf8 White's attack fizzles out since again Qh6 Rxg3 is not an option. Moves that do win at this point are are 43. Re8+ (as proposed by ...
 
   May-21-20 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2020 (replies)
 
NBZ: The finish is elegant: 22. ... Kf8 is met with 23. Qxf5+! Bxf5 24. Rh8#. Black can refuse the queen sac with 23. ... Nf6 but 24. Bxe6 threatening Rh8 is completely winning.
