   Nov-30-19 Petrosian vs Krogius, 1946
qqdos: <a missed opportunity by Petrosian> at move 31 the teenage Krogius had to play 31...Qd8 instead of going on the attack with 31...Qb3?? This would have effectively gifted his Queen to the other teenager who opted to accept the loose Bishop on g5. 32.Qxg5?! was certainly tempting ...
   Sep-24-19 D Poleshchuk vs A Rakhmanov, 2015 (replies)
qqdos: <another victory for Rahkmanov's Sicilian Nimzowitsch Defence> Black won this game not White. It is mate in 2 for Black. After 38.... Be5+; 39.g3 Qxf2+; 40. Kh1 Qg2#. Will Chess Games please correct the record.
   Aug-27-19 D Svetushkin vs S Golubov, 2019 (replies)
qqdos: <Strange Resignation> Was Golubov misled by some mirage about the strength of White's position? Perhaps he overlooked his own - hardly very complicated - resource to maintain equality by 42....Rxa3+! 43.Kxa3 Qd6+ 44.Ka4 (or Kb3) Qxc7 45.Qe6+. Black now has a lovely passed ...
   Aug-17-19 Goglidze vs V Sozin, 1931
qqdos: With his entire attacking force bearing down on the White King, Sozin missed a trick here on move 21. 21...Nxf2! looks decisive if very complex.
   Aug-08-19 A Goganov vs Abhimanyu Puranik, 2019 (replies)
qqdos: <Spoiler Alert> Pundits how did you allow this game to slip under your guard? It is the editor's pick as Best Game of Volume 139 of Chess Informant for the period xi:2018 to ii:2019 with notes by Branko Tadic. Perhaps a Game of the Day. He likes the move 39.Be4! giving the ...
   May-21-19 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1978 (replies)
qqdos: 2 things about this game are puzzling and disturbing - what induced Karpov at move 51 to embark on a death-wish king walk, contrary to every precept that must have been drummed into him by Uncle Botvinnik. From h1 to d5 the Black King was dicing with certain death. He could have ...
   Apr-13-19 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018
qqdos: <Sally Simpson> Hi! Yes, there have been changes, perhaps due to cost cutting. Quite a number of changes to the format - lots of articles on the openings and far fewer annotated games. The panel which chose the Best Game has been superseded and the editor now chooses, or maybe ...
   Mar-16-19 T Dijkhuis vs Van Wely, 2017
qqdos: Why would van Wely choose a well-known losing variation - trying to defend against 20.Qh5. See Wolff vs Sokolov, 1987. As it was, Dijkhuis missed a tremendous move 21.Rd3!
   Feb-24-19 Y Gusev vs E Auerbach, 1946
qqdos: <NeverAgain> I note you have not posted since last September, so I write in the hope that you may spot this message. Like you I feel that computers have a difficulty in unravelling deep positions where zugzwang plays a part in the "solution" perhaps several moves in - as you ...
   Feb-02-19 S P Sethuraman vs J Werle, 2019
qqdos: There was a more powerful sacrifice for Black at move 29...Bc5! because 30.Qxc5 leads to #3 by 30...Rxa3+. It would have been a very satisfying finish for Werle.
