   Aug-07-15 D Howell vs M Hebden, 2015 (replies)
ceebo: 42.Ke2 Rc2+ 43.Kd3 Rxb2 44.Rxa5 Rb3+ 45.Kc4! is my computer's suggestion.
   Nov-21-13 Anand vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
ceebo: An interesting side line shown by my computer: 23.f6 g6 24.Qf4 Kh8 (24...Nc7 is better, transposing back into the game) 25.Qh4 b2 26.h3! This gives a hiding place for the king on h2 and white seems to be looking pretty good from here. This may indicate that 23.f6 was a better move ...
   Aug-22-13 Svidler vs Le Quang Liem, 2013 (replies)
ceebo: My computer says its lost after 108...Rh1. 108...Kb6 and 108...Kc7 are possible saving moves with 109.d5 being answered with 109...b4 in both cases.
   Aug-14-13 Adams vs Kryvoruchko, 2013 (replies)
ceebo: 50.Qc5 seems like a very strong move. After 50...Qxc5 51.bxc5 the bishop endgame seems to be winning for white, e.g. 51...Ke7 52.Kf2 Kd7 53.Ke3 Kc6 54.Kd4 Kb5 55.f5! [DIAGRAM] If 55...Bxf5 then 56.Bxd5 and if 55...gxf5 then 56.Bf3 Also the line 50.Qc5 Qxc5 51.bxc5 Bd7 52.Bxd5 Bc6 ...

ceebo: With a live rating of 2758.9 I am guessing that 1.5/3 in the remaining games will see Adams break his peak rating of 2755 set in the year 2000.
   Jul-19-13 M Mueller-Seps vs E Moser, 2007 (replies)
ceebo: If we remove the a-pawn at move 59 then 6-piece tablebases show that the moves 59.Rf5 and 59.Rf3 are draws so surely the position is drawn with the a-pawn included. Even with the a-pawn removed 59.Rf5 Qg3+ 60.Ke4 Qxh3 61.Kf4 is a 5-piece draw: [DIAGRAM]
   Jul-14-13 Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2010 (replies)
ceebo: 69.Kf4 is also a winning move. It is very tricky because the winning line involves giving black a passed h-pawn which is very difficult to capture without allowing the black king to get to f8 with a resulting fortress. Here is the line: 69.Kf4 Ke2 70.g5 Kf2 71.g3 h5 72.g6 Kg2 73.Bc4 ...
   Jun-15-13 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2013 (replies)
ceebo: 50.Rb8 probably draws because 50.Rb8 b5 51.Rxb5 Kg6 52.Rb8 Kxg5 is a draw according to six-piece tablebases and my computer (which has 5 piece tablebases installed) offers no way of avoiding this line without allowing some other kind of draw.
   May-31-13 Nunn vs Van der Sterren, 1988
ceebo: Even with 59...h4 it is still drawn. White goes Kd3-e2-f1 and black cannot do enough to break the blockade on the square g2. The last real chance to win seems to be on move 53 with something like 53...Ke6.
   May-29-13 Short vs Van Wely, 2013 (replies)
ceebo: If 21...Ne5 then 22.Nf6 Bxg2 23.Bd4 and white has at least a perpetual from here. 23...Qf5 (the most forcing move), 23...Be4 and 23...Nf5 seem to hold for black but all other moves (including 23...Bxh1 and 23...Rd8) give the advantage to white: A) 23...Bxh1 24.Re1 Qe6 25.Rxe5 Bxf6 ...
