   Jul-26-21 Bogoljubov vs I Rabinovich, 1914 (replies)
NM JRousselle: Black missed his chance. With 19... b4 20 Nd1 Ne4 21 Re4 c5, the complications favor Black.
   Jul-19-21 K Arakhamia-Grant vs D Spence, 2009
NM JRousselle: 22... Kb7 was the start of Black's troubles. Kc7 would have avoided the pinning of the b pawn.
   Jul-12-21 M Masungwini vs J K Thorgeirsson, 2015
NM JRousselle: White was clearly winning. 26 b4 does not look like the right idea. I might have tried b3 with the idea of c4, opening lines for the White rooks--or maybe an immediate c4.
   Jul-07-21 Taubenhaus vs W Pollock, 1886
NM JRousselle: Black was doing well, but he did not understand the position. 30... Qe4 keeps control of the e file, prevents the exchange of rooks & maintains the pressure on the White king. I have told my students MANY TIMES that a piece is often worth more than 3 (or 4) pawns.
   May-30-21 Pillsbury vs J Mason, 1895
NM JRousselle: 18... Rc7 is an instructive mistake. The best move was Nd7.
   May-19-21 L Christiansen vs Shirov, 1991
NM JRousselle: 28... Ra2 looks to be winning for Black.
   May-14-21 Philidor vs NN, 1790
NM JRousselle: The sacrifice at move 22 is not sound. Black's best defense looks to be 22 Rxg6+ fxg6 23 Qxg6+ Qg7 24 Qxe6+ Kh8. How does White hold the e pawn? Black appears to be winning in this line.
   May-12-21 Marshall vs S Bernstein, 1941
NM JRousselle: Marshall could have gained a significant advantage with 17 d5. However, Marshall did not like closed positions. Perhaps his opponent knew this.
   May-08-21 Karjakin vs Anand, 2006 (replies)
NM JRousselle: Rxa3 followed by a series of knight checks should do the trick after 27 Rxd6
   May-06-21 Janowski vs Showalter, 1899
NM JRousselle: These guys did not like to resign, but 3 pieces for a rook...
