   Jun-16-16 Alekhine vs M Feigin, 1937 (replies)
Naniwazu: I beg to differ with Eric Farley. It's true around move 15 the position remains about equal, however all of White's subsequent moves in some way constrain Black. Just look at the Rook on b8 how badly it's placed. To me this is high-class maneuvering, not merely 'wood-shifting'.
   Dec-06-15 Grischuk vs Fressinet, 2015
Naniwazu: Nice game!
   Nov-29-15 Y Wang vs X Bu, 2015 (replies)
Naniwazu: <Atking> 19...Qf3 after White castles is a much stronger move, when Black has to give up heavy material to prevent mate.
   Jul-31-15 Vachier-Lagrave vs Rapport, 2015 (replies)
Naniwazu: <Mr.V> Black can't play 25...Qb7? because his back-rank would be too exposed. White simply plays 26. Re8+ Bf8 d6! and is winning. This is why Rapport plays 25...g6 to create some 'luft' for his king. Still, perhaps 25...Qd8 was better defending the back-rank and preventing ...
   Jun-16-15 Andersson vs Y Gruenfeld, 1982 (replies)
Naniwazu: <keypusher> This and many other of Andersson's games are analyzed in 'Grandmaster Chess Strategy: What Amateurs Can Learn From Ulf Andersson's Positional Masterpieces' which you can purchase from most online book stores.
   May-18-15 S Rosselli del Turco vs Alekhine, 1933 (replies)
Naniwazu: He doesn't have to..but after something like 31...Nc5 32. Bd4 Nxa4 33. Na5 Bc8 white is a pawn up and black's pieces are very passive.
   Nov-03-14 Kasimdzhanov vs Gelfand, 2014
Naniwazu: <chessastronomy> After 16...♗xf6 17. ♖xf6! gxf6 (17...♘xf6 18. ♕xg7#) 18. ♗xf8 Black has lost a minor piece. Also after 16...♘xf6 17. ♕xg7# and 16...gxf6 17. ♗xf8 White wins.
   Sep-28-14 Shirov vs S Sulskis, 2014 (replies)
Naniwazu: Shirov after the game: “I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti” xD
   Sep-28-14 Capablanca vs K Treybal, 1929 (replies)
Naniwazu: Compare this game with the pawn-structure that occured in Petrosian vs T Ledic, 1970 after 24...Ra7: [DIAGRAM] Notice any similarities?
   Apr-27-14 McShane vs Kotronias, 2003 (replies)
Naniwazu: @ <Balmo> This game actually makes perfect sense. <2. Bg5> The Trompowsky Attack. Why does McShane play this minor line to 1.d4? Well his opponent Vasilios Kotronias is a noted opening specialist and expert on the Kings Indian Defense. By playing 2. Bg5 McShane avoids ...
