   Apr-04-21 J Emms vs Ftacnik, 2000 (replies)
rogl: To get all relevant variations go to Lichess and plug this position in.
   May-15-20 Carlsen vs Li Chao, 2015 (replies)
rogl: Carlsen just posted a video of this game where he analyses it with John Bartholomew.
   May-11-20 Yu Yangyi vs So, 2020 (replies)
rogl: After 27...Re6 Stockfish says that 28.g4!! is completely winning, but I doubt a human would find that with only a few minutes left.
   Apr-22-20 T Hillarp Persson vs Portisch, 2008 (replies)
rogl: So why does black resign here? After the only move 27...Kb5 white plays 28. Rb1+. If 28...Ka4, 29. Rb4+ wins the queen and after 28...Ka5(6) 29. Rxa7+! quickly mates.
   Mar-26-20 Ding Liren vs Aronian, 2013 (replies)
rogl: <newzild: I found this to be as easy this time as I did six years ago, but expected 43. Re3 instead of 43. Re5, which invites the temporary defence 43...h6. Can anyone see a reason for 43. Re5?> Sorry, but if you went for 43. Re3 you didn't solve it. Black can play 43...Qxa3!, ...
   Mar-18-20 Giri vs Nepomniachtchi, 2020 (replies)
rogl: Judging by the speed of his play, Giri was in preparation until 19...b4. Stockfish at depth>40 gives 19...b4, 19...Rxc4 and 19...bxc4 all 0.00, so I don't know why Giri seems to have overlooked this reply.
   Feb-27-20 Euwe vs Keres, 1940 (replies)
rogl: <Walter Glattke: Ah, 35.Ke4 Re8+ 36.Kd5 Bf3# or 36.Kd3 Bf5+ and BxQ nice> Bf5 is actually mate as well.
   Feb-21-20 Dolmatov vs Yusupov, 1991
rogl: < The intended point of this puzzle is that the immediate 54.Rxb2 only draws, while the counterintuitive 54.Rb7+ actually wins. For example, 54.Rxb2 Ra3! 55.Rg2 (55.Kxf5 Rxg3 =) Ra5! =. We received this position "on good authority" and we'll be the first to admit ...
   Oct-13-19 Kholmov vs Hort, 1967 (replies)
rogl: With 7-men tablebases we can get a verdict of 'draw or not draw?'. It turns out that after 56...Kxh7 the position is objectively drawn. Black goes wrong with his next move. Only 57...Kg8 and 57...Ne7 keep the balance.
   Jun-09-19 Caruana vs So, 2019 (replies)
rogl: MVL saw 46.Qe5 immediately:
