   Sep-15-19 S Sevian vs Karjakin, 2019
Shadout Mapes: Great position after 47. Qxg3+, which was a nice way for Sevian to resign. Black has three legal moves, which result in three different outcomes for the game!
   Apr-29-19 Adorjan vs K Hulak, 1982 (replies)
Shadout Mapes: I actually used a different mate, but it's in the same number of moves: 29.Bg7+ Kg8 30. Bxh7+ Kxh7 31. Qh6+ Kg8 32. Qh8# I guess I saw how nice the pawn on f6 is for keeping black's queen out of the game, so I hit upon this line by seeking combinations where it stays put.
   Dec-18-18 Nakamura vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2018 (replies)
Shadout Mapes: Ha, Nakamura missed the win on move 27 but got back to an identical position and played it! I wonder if he realized inbetween, was kicking himself, and then was overjoyed to get be able to play it after all.

Shadout Mapes: Thanks Benzol! I spent a lot of time here back when I was a kid, but sort of lost track of chess as I got older. I've been trying to keep up again recently. I'm not that strong anymore so I mostly lurk :).
   Apr-27-15 Kasparov vs Short (Blitz) (2015) (replies)
Shadout Mapes: I think Lasker knew Hilbert, but his doctoral advisor was Max Noether, father of the great algebraist Emmy Noether.
   Mar-11-15 A Escobar Forero vs D Nederveld, 2005 (replies)
Shadout Mapes: Yup I missed the knight move 24...Ne5 in the lines given by <Once> and <Pi Guy>, thanks. <morfishine> 22.Rxe6 Qxa1+?? 23.Bf1 Qxa3 24.Re7+ Kf8 25.Qxa3 looks pretty bad for black.

Shadout Mapes: nice opening from kramnik, both in the choice and the execution.
   Jan-18-08 Kramnik vs Aronian, 2008 (replies)
Shadout Mapes: <sambo> after 16...dxc3 17.e6 Nf6 18.Bh5 Nxh5 19.Qxh5 Qf6 20.exf7+ Kd8 21.Rad1 white has a very nice attack.
   Dec-15-07 World Chess Cup (2007) (replies)
Shadout Mapes: Geller lead Korchnoi by half a point in the 1960 USSR championships, and in the penultimate round Korchnoi faced Geller as black and decided that he would only be satisfied with a win: Geller vs Korchnoi, 1960 . Not a match, I know, but considering the opposition and the ...
   Dec-11-07 Karjakin vs Shirov, 2007 (replies)
Shadout Mapes: <Eyal> Very important correction: after 49.Nxe4 the position is won for <black> in 208 moves. After reading your post I stared at the position for a while in disbelief before checking the tablebase myself to see white's win!
