   May-28-19 Nisipeanu vs A Parvanyan, 2019
 
Plakkiecake: 8. ... f6 seems okay, but 18. ... Ne4?! just gives up a pawn without any tangible compensation. White went on to ruthlessly punish any further mistakes with some nice tactical shots.
 
   May-26-19 J van Foreest vs Jobava, 2018
 
Plakkiecake: 25. ... hxg2! is pointed out as the best defence by the engine, after which the fight could have still been very much alive. It seems this 5. ... f6 variation gives White easy play and leaves Black with an uphill struggle right from the opening.
 
   May-25-19 A Almiron vs A Hesham, 2018
 
Plakkiecake: Black seemed to lose track already with his 9th move Nbd7 which lets White develop harmoniously and comfortably hang on to his extra pawn. 9. ... h6 followed by 10. ... e6 would bring some more tension in the position, but it is hard in this gambit line for Black to find ...
 
   May-21-19 A L'Ami vs E Quillien, 2015
 
Plakkiecake: 14. ... Bd7? got White a direct target in the weakened 'd6' square and better control over the d-file after 15. e5! However, White went on to weaken her own kingside with 18. f4? and Black could have fought back with 18 ... Bc6 with possibly enough counterplay. Instead, White ...
 
   May-19-19 L Mons vs Z Almasi, 2019
 
Plakkiecake: After quite some manoeuvering of both players in the opening phase, White seemed the first to blink in this stare off when he opted for the passive 14. Nh2?! after which Black seized the initiative with the critical 14. ... c4! White went on to struggle to find the right plan ...
 
   May-17-19 Y Shvayger vs V Plotkin, 2017
 
Plakkiecake: Black became too greedy with 13. ... Bxc3? and suffered the consequences. His dark squared bishop was a key defender and without it he got vulnerable to the infiltrating of the white queen and knight. 13. ... Bg4 could have been played, bit White would still have enjoyed a ...
 
   May-17-19 Movsesian vs A Seyb, 2018
 
Plakkiecake: Though Black is still a pawn up, his position doesn't seem holdable. White will dominate the dark squares with queen and bishop and his king is more secure. Qxd4/Qxf4 is next followed by for example the direct Rf3-g3 with a decisive attack.
 
   May-07-19 Short vs Gelfand, 1997
 
Plakkiecake: It seems Black had the right idea with his positional exchange sacrifice at 'c3', but failed to play accurately afterwards. White got the easier play and Black erred with 26. ... Nf6? where 26. ... Nc5 was a better defence according to Stockfish. For example: 26. ... Nc5 27. Nd5
 
   May-05-19 A Predke vs Jakovenko, 2016
 
Plakkiecake: White showed some impressive strategical play with moves such as the knight manoeuvre starting with 16. Nb1. The positional pawn sacrifice with 23. e5 was a real beauty, creating a very significant passed d-pawn. Though between move 30 and 40 things started getting a little ...
 
   May-02-19 A Antinyan vs A S Nadanian, 2014
 
Plakkiecake: Interesting that there are no games in the chessgames.com database with 9. Nxh7. I wonder if keeping the light squared bishop a little longer could benefit white.
