Just a hobbyist--about a strong Class A or weak Expert for now--still have dreams of achieving my master rating someday!

   Aug-19-23 A Muzychuk vs N Salimova, 2023 (replies)
halito27: Poisoned rook. 30. Re3 keeps white in the game.
   Jun-02-23 A Mikhalchishin vs S Cvetkovic, 1988 (replies)
halito27: <raymondhow> Same here. I thought Kg6 was a straightforward win and didn't consider e5, which is obviously more efficient.

halito27: Funny pun!
   Apr-21-23 R Byrne vs P Bachmann, 1952 (replies)
halito27: Gets weird at the end: first, 41 ...Qe7 holds for black; second, after black plays 41 ...Rg6 Byrne misses mate in one: 42. Qf8#.
   Sep-20-22 Niemann vs Carlsen, 2022 (replies)
halito27: <EvanTheTerrible> I think 2.c4 still wins.
   Aug-16-22 E Bataev vs V Popov, 1999 (replies)
halito27: Am I the only one questioning this? In the game, if white plays 40. Nxd8 Rxg3+ 41. Qxg3 Qxg3+ 42. Kf1, white has two rooks and a knight for the queen and I don't see a win for black. 42. Qd3+ Kf1 43. Nf4 is simply met by 43. ...Ra2 & I don't see any mates. Other white tries at move
   Jun-15-22 Le Quang Liem vs Shankland, 2022
halito27: 31 ...Nc3 is a tactical error. 31... Rxd1+ 32 Qxd1 Qf8 preserves the balance.
   Mar-18-22 Bogoljubov vs C Ahues, 1930
halito27: <King.Arthur.Brazil> Thanks for responding: I like the basic idea for black, but white has some tactics. In your line, after 35...c5 36 f6! is stronger than your Ke2, threatening both Rg7+ and Rxd5. If we exchange white's f-pawn for black's d-pawn, black has a simple 3-to-2 ...
   Aug-01-21 Nunn vs A Pope, 1972 (replies)
halito27: Blunder was unfortunate, but White's attack pretty much petered out before it. Once black gets the rook on g8 and knight f8, I don't see any way for white to press it. In fact, Black prob already has an edge, due to the active pieces and extra pawn. Not exactly sure where Nunn's ...
   Jun-26-21 R Mamedov vs Areshchenko, 2007 (replies)
halito27: Once again, <chrisowen> seems to have gotten it right. "lecture vindicate dazzle i vast japs maps jams buzzy waggy firk" is especially astute.
