   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 W So, 2019 (replies)
rogl: MVL saw 46.Qe5 immediately:
   Apr-28-19 Svidler vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
rogl: I wouldn't be surprised if the next move is a handshake.
   Apr-28-19 Caruana vs Naiditsch, 2019
rogl: Magnus saw it during his own game. He mentions it during the post-game analysis.
   Apr-22-19 Carlsen vs Anand, 2019 (replies)
rogl: Well, sesse says if 17. g5 black should answer with Ng8, which looks absolutely miserable. +1.52 is the score given.
   Jan-29-19 Samuel Shankland (replies)
rogl: From Sam's twitter: "Do me a favor and and never resign another drawn position" - Border Control Agent at SFO while stamping my passport. I really never will live this one down!
   May-19-18 Kramnik vs Shirov, 1998 (replies)
rogl: <catlover: I don't get the pun..."Right to Play"? Is there some back story about the game to which the pun refers?> Yes, they were playing for who would challenge Kasparov. Shirov went on to win this match so naturally Kramnik got the honour.
   Apr-01-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
rogl: Here is a twitter thread that gives an idea on how difficult this endgame is:
   Jan-21-18 Carlsen vs G Jones, 2018 (replies)
rogl: and who can forget Kramnik walking in to a one move checkmate against Fritz.
   Jan-19-18 Svidler vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
rogl: The players postmortem can be seen here
