   Jan-17-22 Vachier-Lagrave vs Zvjaginsev, 2021
tonsillolith: <12. a5>, <13. c4> is a nice method to constipate Black's queenside. Now Black has a dearth of freeing moves. And another good one with <32. g4>. White does not allow much counterplay.
   Jan-16-22 Vachier-Lagrave vs G Dudin, 2021 (replies)
tonsillolith: Those who deign never to analyze blitz lead sad, sad lives. Is there anything more satisfying than a tactical flurry ending in a solid, organized piece formation like <28. Nxb3>? What a combo!
   Jan-16-22 K Sychev vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2021
tonsillolith: Am interesting alternative line is <35...Nd3+ 36. Qxd3 Qxb7 37. Rxb7 Rxd3>, or with a <37. Qxf5+ exf5> thrown in there. The weak in-browser engine evaluates it as slightly worse, though.
   Jan-16-22 A Timofeev vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2021
tonsillolith: Since everyone likes to make historical comparisons here - I'm really feeling the Karpov or Kramnik from MVL.
   Jan-15-22 B Amin vs Aronian, 2021
tonsillolith: On move <36...> there are two moves for Black: <hxg5> and <Rxg5>. The king & pawn endgame seems a fairly clear win for Black, so one need only compare the outcomes where White refuses a rook trade. At first it seems <hxg5> is the more active course, ...
   Jan-11-22 Vasyl Ivanchuk (replies)
tonsillolith: Could someone please explain the change of Ivanchuk's name on this page from <Vassily> to <Vasyl>? Sorry if I missed it somewhere. I take it it has to do with Russian-to-English transliteration, but I don't have much knowledge in that department. Are both plausible ...
   Jan-07-22 Carlsen vs Duda, 2021
tonsillolith: <46. g4!> wins the rook by force.
   Jan-04-22 M Klekowski vs Caruana, 2021
tonsillolith: At move <18...f5>, the fork <g4> looks problematic for whichever Black piece recaptures on <f5>. The point is that during the recaptures, Black has a chance for <Be3+> and <Bd4> winning the rook. This explains why White opts to continue unfolding ...
   Jan-02-22 D Nordquelle vs Jobava, 2017
tonsillolith: Around the time of <26...Nf3+> I was reminded of a Kasparov game -- queenless middle game, heavy rook & knight pressure, etc I thought maybe Short was playing White, but I'm unable to find it. Must have been someone else.
   Jan-02-22 P Idani vs Firouzja, 2019 (replies)
tonsillolith: I saw Firouzja was a big Caro-Kann player, and, being quite the devotee myself, decided to check out his games. How great to get a fresh new perspective on this solid opening! This was not the perspective I was hoping for... Not at all what usually like about the Caro-Kann. On ...
