   Nov-15-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
TheDestruktor: <peristilo: Man, there must be a win. The engine says -2!!!> The problem is that the engine doesn't understand the concept of fortress. Look at the lines the engine is producing, and see if it does something besides moving the pieces back and forth.
   Nov-14-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
TheDestruktor: If the analysis from Stockfish is correct, then Carlsen may just have thrown the win away with 49.Kg4, instead of 49.Ke4. Of course, this is just a wild speculation from my part, but I don't think the players have access to Stockfish while they are playing.
   May-11-10 Topalov vs Anand, 2010 (replies)
TheDestruktor: <acirce: This is, of course, completely winning without any particular difficulties. Beats me why ..Kh7 would have been so much easier. Look at the chessok line. Both lines lead to clearly won endgames that will take some time to actually win but where the result isn't in ...

TheDestruktor: Not all 0:00 are created equal. Sometimes it is "nothing else to do, go home", and sometimes it is "OK for now, but miss one shot and you are dead".
   May-06-10 Anand vs Topalov, 2010 (replies)
TheDestruktor: Objectively, a won positon for white. But one bad move by a tired player on time trouble and......

TheDestruktor: In the heat of the battle, the six passed pawns reminded me of Tim Krabbe and chess records: and click on the link "most passed pawns"
   Aug-06-09 Hort vs Petrosian, 1970 (replies)
TheDestruktor: 21.Nh5 and 22.Nf6+ looks like a killer idea. It turned out to be strategic suicide.
   Jul-21-09 Panno vs Larsen, 1971 (replies)
TheDestruktor: Man, what a game. No wonder there is almost no kibitzing for it today, even being a GOTD. Seems that no one knows what to say (including me). It will take a while for me to really understand this game.
   Jul-21-09 Beliavsky vs Bacrot, 1999 (replies)
TheDestruktor: <Once: Today's puzzle is a rare example of a double-defensive move. Normally, we see moves that double-attack - a fork, a skewer, a pin. Indeed, the tempting 17. Nxc6 is itself a double attack - it threatens both 18. Rd8# and 18. Qxb5. What most of us missed is that black ...
   Jul-20-09 Bologan vs Vaganian, 2006 (replies)
TheDestruktor: The attack after 12...Nxe2 was demolishing. I believe that the best defensive move for black here would be 12...Ndf5. It brings an extra piece to defense, while the white knight can't join the attack because it is needed to protect c3. It also reinforces the defense of g7, ...
