   Mar-14-14 Gelfand vs Aronian, 2013 (replies)
fishcat: 36.Qg5 is a bit better than trading off the queens.
   Mar-10-14 G den Broeder vs W Wegener, 1982 (replies)
fishcat: What's so special about 7.Qf5? A nice simplification for OTB players? Yes, White can complete the bishop trade after 9...e6 10.Qg6+, but then what? Black's ahead in development, presumably the point of this "opening". It's correspondence after all, let's see 7.gxh7+ Kf8 8.Nf3 Nf6 ...
   Feb-16-14 Portisch vs O Chernikov, 2011
fishcat: It's not that great a game. White has a small advantage from the opening, until 48.Re6?? allows mate in 2. Also overlooked was 40.Kg4.
   Feb-08-14 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2013 (replies)
fishcat: <Stormbringer> 82. Rg2 Rxg2 83. Bxh7 1-0
   Feb-04-14 Karjakin vs Van Wely, 2013 (replies)
fishcat: Why 17...h5? Black's king is miserable after that.
   Jan-31-14 Potolea vs D Gedult, 1974 (replies)
fishcat: 7.Nf7 8.Nxh8 9.Kxf2 and Black can mate in 5, but he draws it out a bit so White can contemplate the meaning of greed. A nice demonstration.
   Jan-23-14 Timman vs Speelman, 1992 (replies)
fishcat: Black resigned in a drawn position. It's been 50 half moves since the last capture, and with 91...Ng4 he can hold for more than 50 more with best play. Or maybe he ran out of time.. or one of the modifications to the 50 move rule was in place.
   Jan-23-14 Z Topel vs N Pares Vives, 2008
fishcat: <after it became pawnless R vs. R+B> Hm, yes.. but 62.g4 lost, and 64...Rg2 drew; best was 64...Rf4, with 6 other winning moves.
   Jan-13-14 Ali Majed vs Hytham Omar, 1999
fishcat: 15.Ne4 is no good... Rh3 or Bxh6 instead maybe. After ...c5 everything falls apart.
   Jan-13-14 S Williams vs The World, 2013 (replies)
fishcat: So he had nothing after all? Pity.
