   Oct-26-16 E Inarkiev vs G Oparin, 2016
Rob Morrison: It might be even more significant that black dropped his queen.
   May-16-16 Navara vs Z Sturua, 2016 (replies)
Rob Morrison: Wow!! What courage and calculation to play 30. Qf6!!! Navajo had to see the whole king walk out to f4 with black pieces all over the place. Reminds me of the famous Botvinnik-Capablanca king walk game from 1938, except this is even better. Bravo!
   Mar-31-16 M Dougherty vs H Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
Rob Morrison: Wow! Michael. Good game and impressive tournament result. I just stumbled upon this today. I'm telling all my friends that Michael Dougherty of Toronto (I think), who I used to know, defeated Carlsen in 2016.
   Mar-28-16 Karjakin vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
Rob Morrison: What a heartbreak for Caruana. By the stats he's a better player than Karjakin. He was outplaying Karjakin and was clearly better, and then one boo-boo. I also didn't know right away if 37. Rxd5 was decisive, but I was sure thinking about it one second after seeing Caruana's ...
   Feb-02-16 A Tari vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2016 (replies)
Rob Morrison: I think if Paul Morphy could have seen us playing Na4 and Nh4 with white on moves 6 and 7, with nothing else developed, he would have thought we had all lost our minds.
   Sep-30-15 H Bernink vs H Hoeksema, 1982 (replies)
Rob Morrison: I like the element of Divine Justice in this game. Black grabs material at every possible opportunity, right up to Nxa2 and Rxa1. Like a hedge fund that grasps at every penny of gains right up until it blows itself up.
   Jun-04-15 A Demuth vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
Rob Morrison: No, it's absolutely the right time for white to resign. No one would ever take back on g6 with the king. White's king is paralyzed, bound, gagged, and ready for termination as soon as the checks, very soon, run out.
   Apr-13-15 A Ipatov vs N Mammadova, 2015
Rob Morrison: ?? - for sure I prefer white's position, but isn't a little early to resign?
   Mar-31-15 Sasikiran vs J van Foreest, 2015
Rob Morrison: I'm surprised Sasi agreed to a draw here against a significantly (by rating) weaker player. Tough position to evaluate. White might aspire to get the N to h5 and then push the f-pawn up to f5, which looks imposing, but before that happens black can try to tie white down to the ...
   Mar-24-15 L Javakhishvili vs A Muzychuk, 2015
Rob Morrison: I just love how white's pieces get all tangled up, moves 25-28. Nice win for Anna.
