   Jun-02-20 I Cheparinov vs S Nikolov, 2005 (replies)
Predrag3141: [DIAGRAM] Black's real attack was in the center. Thinking it was against the king, he played a losing move, 33 a3? This allowed White strong enough tactics to abandon his e-pawn with Nf5. After 34 Nf5 Bc7, White blundered back with 35 Qg3, missing 35 Qh5-h6. The defense, ...

Predrag3141: [DIAGRAM] If White had done "nothing" on move 28, e.g. 28 h3, the game would have been even because 28 Rf8? 29 Nd7 is a winning defense. But 28 Qa7? was close to losing because there is no viable defense to 28 Rf8 (which was played). 29 Nd7 would have lost to 29 Qf7. The ...

Predrag3141: Stockfish shows that if Black accepts the knight sacrifice on move 16, his queen is trapped. Even so, it evaluates White's advantage as only +1.29. [DIAGRAM] 16 bxc3 17.e6 Ne5 18.e7 Qxe7 19.Bxe7 Kxe7 20.bxc3 Rhd8 21.Qe2 Kf8 22.Bf5 Nd3 23.Rad1 Bxc3 24.Bxd3 cxd3 25.Rxd3 Bf6 ...
   May-29-20 W Heidenfeld vs L Barden, 1951
Predrag3141: The losing move, 13 g5, gave Black a one-piece attack in exchange for a pawn and a rook on the seventh. Luckily for White, he found a way to bring his queen to g3, saving the day.
   May-28-20 Reti vs J Dobias, 1913 (replies)
Predrag3141: Black's last chance to win, before 79 Bxb6?, was probably 74 Ke5. The bishop on g3 guards the queening square, b8, so the sacrifices b5 and a4 could be contemplated. Stockfish gives 74...Ke5 75.Kd3 Kd5 76.Bd2 Bc7 77.Bg5 b5 78.axb5 a4 79.bxa4 c4+ with a paw race in which ...
   May-28-20 Ivanchuk vs Bacrot, 2007 (replies)
Predrag3141: After 23 Qf5, the best defense is 24 h4. The evaluation then is -0.75. So this is not Black to move and win. I was worried about 23 Qf5 24 h3 (similar to the best defense but drops the h-pawn). So I chose 23 Qg4, keeping the h-pawn at home. The evaluation of that move is ...
   May-26-20 Mamedyarov vs A Tasan, 2002 (replies)
Predrag3141: Black's should have played 14 Ne5 instead of 14 cxd5, giving White lots of activity. But the real problem was that later, Black missed several key moves in a row: - 33 Bh6, harassing the R on c1, with equality. - 34 Rbc8, counterattacking the pawn on c5. - 35 Rd7, ...
   May-25-20 W So vs Z Izoria, 2018
Predrag3141: A nice little tactic that White did not try was 14 Nxe6 Bxe3 15 Nxg7+ Kf8 16 e5. If Black tries to emerge up by a piece with 16 ... Nd5?, then 17 e6 regains the piece with almost a 2 pawn advantage, since 17 fxe6?? 18 fxe3+ Kxg7?? leads to mate: 19 Qg4+ Kh6 20.Qh4+ Kg6 21.Be4+
   May-25-20 A Chibukhchian vs Z Izoria, 2001 (replies)
Predrag3141: <TheaN> After 33 Ne2 34 Kh2 Nxg3 35 Kxg3 Rxg2 36 Kf4, 36 Rb2 is a nice simplification. But Stockfish considers 36 Rh2 a close second, and actually evaluates it as better until prompted with 36 Rb2.
   May-23-20 Morozevich vs E Alekseev, 2004 (replies)
Predrag3141: <scormus> Update on my comment about your suggestion 22 Bd8. It actually refutes this POTD! <Benin>, you and I were right to guess 22 h6. The evaluation of 22 h6 is 2.85, which is higher than after 22 Qh4 Bd8.
