   Nov-12-20 Ftacnik vs A Aleksandrov, 2008 (replies)
ajk68: 29. c4?? was not thought out properly.
   Nov-06-20 A Istratescu vs Lazarev, 2011 (replies)
ajk68: Another drawish continuation: (from the game line)... 30...Rxd3 31. fxg7 Qxg7 32. Qxd3 Rxf1 33. Qxf1 It seems black panicked. The weakness of white's bishop protecting the back rank rook gives black some resources.
   Oct-26-20 M Oleksienko vs V Bernadskiy, 2017 (replies)
ajk68: 27. g3? What's he thinking? He gives up any last bit of advantage he has. Clearly Rc1 continues pressing.
   Aug-18-20 L Rudenko vs R M Bruce, 1946 (replies)
ajk68: After 25...Qc7 the win is long in coming. There is a mate in 21 according to the computer. 1) mate-in-21 (28 ply) 26.Rd1 Qd7 27.Nh7+ Qxh7 28.Qxh7 Be6 29.Qh6+ Ke7 30.Qg7+ Ke8 31.Qh8+ Ke7 32.Qxa8 Bf7 33.Qxa7 Kf8 34.Qb8+ Kg7 35.Qxb7 Kf8 36.Qb8+ Kg7 37.Qd8 Kh7 38.Qf8 Kg6 39.Qe7 Be8 ...
   May-18-20 D Dubov vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
ajk68: I'm guessing Carlsen's mistake, 15...Rf7?, bothered him. His moves after that seem very distracted. 30...Be7, 31...Bf6 and it seems he is not thinking clearly.
   May-13-20 Akash G vs Caruana, 2013 (replies)
ajk68: 40...Rxh4! Don't even know if that qualifies as a sacrifice. Black gets the material (and more) back almost immediately.
   Apr-21-20 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2020 (replies)
ajk68: White's move 61. c7! is a critical move. Seemingly it loses the pawn without even gaining the bishop, but in reality it draws black's king farther away from the safe corner. White can then take control of the corner with his king and bishop. Any other move by white gives up the win. ...
   Apr-21-20 S Williams vs McShane, 2014 (replies)
ajk68: Not a very interesting game. I can blunder pieces away just as well as white did here!
   Apr-06-20 Ragozin vs Taimanov, 1945 (replies)
ajk68: The critical idea is that the knight on e8 and rook at f8 is a checkmate. The queen sacrifice occurs (it's a Monday after all) in order to get the rook to the f8 square. Black's other option is to capture the knight on e8 with the rook but that leads to checkmate in an obvious manner.
   Mar-23-20 Vasiukov vs Bronstein, 1961 (replies)
ajk68: I saw the whole line to mate but I thought there must have something quicker I was missing - it being a Monday puzzle
