   Jun-12-21 Marshall vs Maroczy, 1903 (replies)
 
Nerwal: 12. dxc5! was a very strong positional decision but White's play after 15... Nc6 was simply erratic ; after 16. Rfd1 White would keep a large positional advantage with many possibilities in the center and the queenside (Rab1, Bb5...).
 
   Jun-12-21 Gunsberg vs E Schallopp, 1886
 
Nerwal: Quite a strange game showing defence and fight for initiative was not up to par in 1886. After the simple 13. Nbd2 (ready to give up b2 and c3 to complete development, after which the weakness of the Kb8 will tell) Black is just completely lost.

Nerwal: [DIAGRAM] Werle - Gajewski, 2016 Black played the surprising 28... ♘h4!?. After 29. gxh4 gxh4 White would have two moves to rescue the loose ♗h5 but would be unable to save it.
 
   Dec-14-20 T Luther vs O Touzane, 1994 (replies)
 
Nerwal: Like the classical example found in books : W Springe vs H Gebhard, 1927
 
   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 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.
