   Nov-19-21 Firouzja vs Jobava, 2021 (replies)
kevinatcausa: Pretty finish there.
   Oct-18-21 Shankland vs Naroditsky, 2021 (replies)
kevinatcausa: You can move the King as long as it's not on the rook file with the wrong-colored bishop. The position White is aiming for is to have the pawn on f7 guarded by the bishop, with his king moving to e6/g6 while black's king is on f8. This forces black's king up the other side, ...
   Jul-28-21 Shankland vs Karjakin, 2021 (replies)
kevinatcausa: Steve.Patzer: Not sure if that was the case. Feels like Nc7 was a good practical way to simplify down into an easily won endgame.
   May-24-21 Knaak vs Adorjan, 1985 (replies)
kevinatcausa: One of those situations where black's position would be so much better if they could just make their G-pawn disappear. Not great, but at least not an immediate loss.
   Mar-24-21 Kosteniuk vs N Pogonina, 2005 (replies)
kevinatcausa: I think 29. c3 also works here? The idea is to force the black queen off the diagonal, removing a defender of h8.
   May-24-20 Y Yu vs Ding Liren, 2020 (replies)
kevinatcausa: White's 61st was an unusual sacrifice. Yu sacrificed his bishop not for the position, but for the purpose of making his opponent spend a precious 2 seconds figuring out what was going on.
   Mar-26-20 World Championship Candidates (2020/21) (replies)
kevinatcausa: <If we're following the 1985 precedent, scores must be voided and restart at 0.> From the announcement on FIDE's website, it seems like the players agreed before the tournament started that results could carry over if the tournament was suspended.
   Feb-15-20 V S Gujrathi vs M Ragger, 2020
kevinatcausa: It's a strange opening -- Black spends 3 of their first 5 moves on a Knight that immediately gets traded off.
   Feb-15-20 Prague Chess Festival (Masters) (2020) (replies)
kevinatcausa: 15 out of 20 matches so far have been between 30 and 45 moves (and another at 46).
   Jan-07-20 I Bilek vs F Kuijpers, 1966 (replies)
kevinatcausa: This was easier having already seen yesterday's puzzle.
