   Jul-06-20 L Uedemann vs E P Elliott, 1902 (replies)
NM JRousselle: After surviving the opening & obtaining the 2 bishops, Black could have continued with 22... d5! If White captures, Black has more than enough compensation after Bf5+. If White does not capture, 23... c5 is very strong.
   Jun-30-20 H Pfleger vs G Mazzoni, 1966 (replies)
NM JRousselle: Isn't 6... h6 the correct move?
   Jun-12-20 F Vallejo Pons vs R Knaak, 2003 (replies)
NM JRousselle: This ending is very instructive. Black's defense beginning with 52 e3+ is clever. White had to be alert to play 56 Kc4! The "routine" Kc3 would have lost for him. The lesson is clear. Precision is required in endings.
   Jun-11-20 C Polk vs M Sana, 2016 (replies)
NM JRousselle: This is lucky escape by Black. White held a crushing advantage for several moves before the blunder 27 Na5. The simple Rb7 (perhaps not the best move) would have simplified White's life by removing counterplay and winning 2 pieces for the rook.
   May-29-20 Harrwitz vs S Boden, 1847
NM JRousselle: 13 Bxg7 looks like the culprit. If queens come off the board, then Bxg7 looks strong. With this in mind, Bb5+ suggests itself.
   May-29-20 D Khismatullin vs M Bosiocic, 2010 (replies)
NM JRousselle: In the "puzzle" position, White has an overwhelming position. I must confess I missed Bf7+ followed by Rd6! However, at least 3 other moves give White a crushing advantage. Moves such as Nb5, Ne4 and Rdf1 all leave White way ahead. I'm not fond of a "puzzle" such as this one.
   May-26-20 Tal vs H Karner, 1976 (replies)
NM JRousselle: Did Black lose on time?
   May-25-20 Spassky vs J Rukavina, 1973
NM JRousselle: The score of the game must be incorrect. 5 f4 is likely f3. If not, Black could take the g4 pawn with the night on move 17 (among others).
   May-18-20 Alekhine vs A Tanielian, 1936
NM JRousselle: Hardly a refutation. White's 16 Be7 certainly looked suspect. One of my candidate moves was 16 c4. This stops the threatened Qd5 (exchanging queens) and b5 (trapping the a6 bishop). Lo and behold! 16 c4 was White's best move, giving him an advantage of +3. In other words, ...
   May-18-20 S Landau vs Reti, 1927 (replies)
NM JRousselle: White's 15th move is OK. The blunder is on move 16.
