   May-24-20 A Firouzja vs A Giri, 2020
guenther42: Devilish efficency by 16-year-old Alireza Firouzja!
   Nov-07-19 Taimanov vs Korchnoi, 1973
guenther42: What an exciting game!
   Jul-07-19 GCT Croatia (2019) (replies)
guenther42: Whoops! NOT the draw with Aronian, but the draw with Mamedyarov--THAT was the AZ-like game Carlsen saved.
   Jul-07-19 Carlsen vs Mamedyarov, 2019
guenther42: Whoops! Not Aronian, but Mamedyarov.
   Nov-26-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
guenther42: Sorry to read so many shallow judgments denigrating a match full of exciting chess. These guys are simply evenly matched over 12 classical games. Check out the Alpha Zero analysis. Alpha zero agreed with 90-95% of the moves. B players with attitudes, geez! Disappointment with a ...
   Nov-20-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
guenther42: These are fighting games, exciting draws. Disappointed? So what? These guys are the two highest rated players in the world--and they show why. Look how frequently that the lesser GM commentators fail to anticipate what either player is going to do. Caruana and Carlsen repeatedly ...
   Oct-15-18 T Krnan vs Ding Liren, 2015
guenther42: Masterful endgame play by Ding Liren.
   Jan-15-18 Anand vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
guenther42: What a gutsy move 42. Rd6! The entire game treats us to a series of learning moments. Rock 'em sock 'em chess all the way. Early on, at 13. f3 attacks the knight on e4, allowing 13...Bg6--the luxury of ignoring PxN and continuing development. If PxN, the forced 4-move sequence ...
   Aug-08-17 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
guenther42: A game that stirs up comparison to the mind-bending game 13 Spassy-Fischer (1972). Both games will be replayed for decades by grandmasters and club players alike to enjoy their comparable bewildering complexity.
   Jul-13-17 Radjabov vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
guenther42: A quiet opening puzzle that got Svidler out of his comfort zone early, Radjabov relentlessly posed multiple threats that eventually sucked the oxygen out of Svidler's defense. A beautiful game by Radjabov. Glad to see him in revival mode.
