   May-26-20 Botvinnik vs Tal, 1960
Nerwal: <What happens on 39 b4 intending to exchange pawns and, depending on how black recaptures, penetrate on the b file or push the d pawn?> 39. b4 ♖d8! intending to recapture with the d pawn to target d5 and set up a dark squares blockade.
   May-19-20 G Sibashvili vs A Firouzja, 2018 (replies)
Nerwal: 16... cxd5 17. ♗xd5+ ♔h8 18. ♗xd6 looks scary for a human : White has two pawns and a very strong bishop pair for the piece. If you don't find a concrete way to kill White's play then it is unwise to enter this kind of line even if engines give Black as better. It ...
   May-19-20 Alekhine vs Capablanca, 1927
Nerwal: Another example where Alekhine did not go for kingside expansion, tried to create something tactically with the pieces in the center and lost all his advantage in just a few moves.
   May-17-20 Alekhine vs Capablanca, 1927 (replies)
Nerwal: What I found quite surprising is that Alekhine never tried to grab the space on the kingside with g4-h4. Was it a matter of style or endgame technique did not include this concept yet ?
   Mar-13-20 Nunn vs Shirov, 1996
Nerwal: Indeed Nunn's opening seem to have seriously failed at an early stage. Black had already the better prospects at move 13, and 13. d5 c5 was simply bad for White. Overall Shirov played the whole game very strongly, nearly perfectly even, to punish White's wrong play. In his analysis ...
   Mar-07-20 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2019 (replies)
Nerwal: Psychology at the end of a very tiring tournament. He just wanted to cash in and secure the win. Nakamura had less than 10 seconds left so he quickly played something easy grabbing material while keeping the attack.
   Feb-16-20 S Shankland vs A Gorovets, 2017
Nerwal: After 18. ♘e4 heading to c5 Black has a miserable position, but it would be quite surprising if the game finished there.
   Feb-09-20 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
Nerwal: Probably not, 12. ♕a3 was already well established theory in 1972 (first played in E Eliskases vs Spielmann, 1936 ). The fresh move was 13. ♗b5 although not really new either ( Furman vs Geller, 1970 and in the book on his best games published in the early 50s Tartakower ...
   Oct-23-19 P Romanovsky vs A A Smorodsky, 1924
Nerwal: The position before 33. ♘a5 is featured in <Think like a Grandmaster> by Kotov. Of course nowadays nobody would wait to be squashed like Smorodsky did and something like 33. ♘a5 cxd5 34. exd5 ♖xd5 would be tried.
   Aug-05-19 A Triapishko vs A Esipenko, 2019
Nerwal: 17. ♖fd1 is a nice case of wrong rook. The critical point to defend is f2, not a2 : 17. ♖ad1 a4 18. ♘d2! (not 18. ♘c1 e4) ♗xa2 19. ♘c4 =/∞; 17. ♖fd1 a4 18. ♘d2 e4 19. f3 ♘e5! -+.
