   Nov-10-20 J Xiong vs Nakamura, 2020 (replies)
 
sambo: a real rout! Black has no initiative whatsoever already after the 18th move, and it's kind of astounding to see Naka play something like 22...Ba8
 
   Feb-06-20 Plaskett vs Miles, 1986 (replies)
 
sambo: perhaps this is naive, or answered above (although I didn't see it) -- but why not 22...Qxd3 as an alternative to taking the pawn? Is it that black was playing for a win and taking d3 leaves a perpetual, or is there a white win in that line that I'm missing?
 
   Jan-14-20 A Kashlinskaya vs S Sevian, 2018 (replies)
 
sambo: 22. b5 was shocking to me when I first played it through, but after some Stockfish time I see it's quite essential to prevent Ne6 from blocking the powerful attack on f7. So strong, such a beautiful game!
 
   Dec-04-18 Balashov vs Jansa, 2017 (replies)
 
sambo: 39...Re1 fails because 40 Qxf5+ puts black in check and defends the pawn on f3
 
   Oct-20-18 N Pert vs R Britton, 2018
 
sambo: 24? is a puzzle move -- tough to see, but so strong!
 
   Mar-19-18 A Guest vs Bird, 1886
 
sambo: 18. Kb5 Qxd5+ 19. Ka6 Nd6#
 
   Oct-03-17 Capablanca vs Louis Bryant Tuckerman, 1912
 
sambo: 43 Kd4 seems so straightforward!
 
   Sep-07-17 M Muzychuk vs E Levushkina, 2008 (replies)
 
sambo: why not 16... or 17...dxe5?
 
   Jul-04-17 J van Foreest vs S Ernst, 2017 (replies)
 
sambo: what a powerful ending!
 
   Jan-19-17 Smirin vs G Jones, 2017 (replies)
 
sambo: 32. Kh2 is a little surprising at first glance. Not sure if this is sloppy on Gawain's part or especially clever by Smirin, but a nice mini-ending all the same.
