   Dec-10-21 Nepomniachtchi vs Carlsen, 2021 (replies)
rainingpieces: This might get interesting? ..Re4 was a nice move I presume
   Apr-10-21 Korchnoi vs O Moiseev, 1950
rainingpieces: If checked with a computer, the 24.Ba7 does win. I was thinking 24.Bd4 to block g1-a7 diagobal, but Black has ..Nxg5 resource to battle this. After 24..Qc7 the move 24.Bd4 does work according to the computer, because black queen is not guarding g6 anymore
   Jan-18-21 So vs Nakamura, 2015 (replies)
rainingpieces: The rook move 23.Rc7 yeah. I remember that some commentators questioned this choice after the game, and it is not clear if the rook should be moved. Black perhaps does not want to capture it, since the passed pawn is a good asset for white and black would like to use his ...
   May-14-19 G Apryshko vs G Rechlis, 2018 (replies)
rainingpieces: This game reminded me of that Carlsen game where he lost a piece
   Apr-23-19 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2018 (replies)
rainingpieces: Funny ending, 50-move-rule
   Apr-22-19 Carlsen vs Anand, 2019 (replies)
rainingpieces: 10.Qe2 looks normal, but maybe better is 10.Be3 Nc5 11.Bc2 followed by Qd2 and Rd1
   Nov-27-18 A Feneridis vs E Frost, 1968 (replies)
rainingpieces: A beautiful knight sac
   Nov-06-18 M Bezold vs D J Ledger, 2008 (replies)
rainingpieces: Was looking at the opening and after 10.Ne4 the move 10..d5 looked natural. Checked and computer also likes Black after that
   Sep-09-18 Tarrasch vs Albin, 1903 (replies)
rainingpieces: After move 18.Bd2 White should be simply better, Black got his bishop a bit out of play on g6 and the center is closed
   Jul-31-18 Vachier-Lagrave vs Mamedyarov, 2018
rainingpieces: Usually White takes on f6 at move 13. I played this variation in a tournament with Black once, it ended in a draw. It would appear that if 24.Qxf1 then 24...Qg3
