   Apr-26-17 Topalov vs Nisipeanu, 2007 (replies)
mruknowwho: I thought White wasted too much time with his light square bishop throughout the game. Even in the opening; if your opponent is playing the Scandinavian Defense, what is the point of developing a bishop in a fianchetto type of manner? Why not take the fastest route to development
   Dec-04-16 H Roepstorff vs Bogoljubov, 1942 (replies)
mruknowwho: al wazir: The one thing about that is after 27...Nxd2 28.Rd1 (avoiding Nxf1)28...Nxc4 29.Rf7+ Kh8 30.Rxc7 Na5 (presumably since the knight is under attack), Black is in possible danger of an attack against the king which would involve potentially both rooks and the knight. Not to
   Jul-26-16 Tal vs T Paehtz Sr, 1974 (replies)
mruknowwho: After 16.Qd4, I think what Black never realized was that due to the fact that his bishop is on c8, Tal actually has excellent light square control for the moment. Maybe instead of taking the rook on h1, perhaps a little bit better would have been to challenge the light squares ...
   Jul-11-16 Tal vs R Bogdanovic, 1967 (replies)
mruknowwho: My tired brain has realized that it's actually both a rook and bishop sacrifice, though it might offer a sliver of hope. It depends on if White's king hunt leads to a mate and if Black can do anything with the passed pawns.
   Jul-02-16 Wei Yi vs Ding Liren, 2015 (replies)
mruknowwho: Wei Yi reminds me of Robert Fischer. There's a constant growing tension all across the board when he plays. It's like his opponents run into a sink hole that they can't escape.
   Jul-01-16 Spassky vs Tal, 1973 (replies)
mruknowwho: Mike1 is correct. After 20...Bxa1? 21.Rxa1 Qc3?? 22.Qd8+ Kh7 23.Be4+!, Black is in trouble. <Willber G> mike1 wrote 20...Bxa1 like a White move so there is an illusion that there is a knight that can take the queen. (No disrespect intended for mike1.)
   Jun-26-16 D Janaszak vs A Siwiec, 2009 (replies)
mruknowwho: I believe that anytime you can invade the king's 6th with the enemy king still in the center, even at the cost of a piece, it just about always pays off. I didn't actually find 16.Nd5. My idea was to play 16.Rg3. The threat of taking g7 in association with the possible Qh5 is a ...
   Apr-29-16 Romanishin vs Kasparov, 1975 (replies)
mruknowwho: Not that I have anything against the opening, but I have my doubts that I would attempt to give Kasparov the Bird.
   Mar-05-16 So vs N Ginting, 2008 (replies)
mruknowwho: I detest that situation; find a way to put your opponent in check or you lose.
   Mar-02-16 J McConnell vs Morphy, 1850 (replies)
mruknowwho: I smelled trouble for White as soon as he played 5.f4. This happens quite often in Chess, at least at the amateur level; Somebody tries to overwhelm the board with pawns and then the opposing player gets through the pawn wave and everything goes downhill.
