   May-15-22 Tal vs Gufeld, 1968 (replies)
Nerwal: The position at move 20 is given in <the Life and Games of Mikhail Tal> (p. 347). Tal gave 22... ♗e7 as a valid defence, but after 23. ♖h1! White just wins, so Black should play 22... f1=♕+ first to force 23. ♔xf1. Still after the difficult 22... ...
   Nov-02-21 Ivanchuk vs Predojevic, 2016
Nerwal: The finish of this game 24. ♕xa5 onwards is a little gem.
   Jun-18-21 Short vs Smyslov, 1987
Nerwal: The position at move 15 is featured in Aagard's Positional Chess. While 15. ♗a7 is a strong and critical move, others tries must come into consideration : first there is 15. ♘e1, well liked by engines, with the idea of ♘d3 and f4 - this may actually be the most ...
   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 (replies)
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.
   Apr-30-21 Grzegorz Gajewski
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.
