actinia: what a painful way to lose
   Jul-28-19 V S Gujrathi vs Leko, 2019
actinia: even more simply, I think black resigned because at best it will be a K vs K + B + N endgame.
   Jul-14-19 Nimzowitsch vs E R Lundin, 1934 (replies)
actinia: 41. ... Kg7?! or even ? is hard to understand. engine recommends 41. ... h5, to prevent g4, and black keeps an advantage. even up to move 45, h5 would keep a black advantage. Kg7 is unusual to me because it loses a tempo simply to put the king on an arguably worse square
   Jul-03-19 NN vs V Kahn, 1941 (replies)
actinia: not terribly interesting
   Jun-28-19 M A San Diego vs K M Shepherd, 2017 (replies)
actinia: what a fun game. sensible enough play by black and white gets in some great sacrificial attacking
   Jun-17-19 Horst Beer vs Grob, 1966 (replies)
actinia: starting at move 16 white really starts heading south. inexplicable for a correspondence game. just push the a pawn. if Re8 then exchange bishop for knight. the e5 pawn is doing a great job of cramping black. the c8 bishop has to get out. if black's d pawn moves then exd6 to open up

actinia: white's pieces perfectly defend white's king and attack black's. the b7 bishop is useless so white is effectively up s piece. the center and queen side are closed. the king side is about to opened up. looking at a few lines with engine analysis, white will double rooks on the g or h
   May-05-19 Caruana vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
actinia: what a great game. not sure how I missed this last year.
   May-02-19 Aronian vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
actinia: this is exactly the kind of game like when a human puts everything in an attack against a computer, the computer calmly defends and the attacker is just busted. seems Aronian could have known better
   Apr-24-19 Gelfand vs Karpov, 1994 (replies)
actinia: this is my favorite tournament and result. I remember the day I got Inside Chess in the mail with the tournament report. this was soon after the PCA/FIDE split and karpov destroyed kasparov in this tournament. looking back, the level of play was not as high as today. one game ...
