   Dec-11-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
zb2cr: I don't know, it's almost as if that loss in the marathon game 6 broke something in Nepo, His errors in game 8 and 9 were something I might have played ... and I'm a thousand rating points beneath him!
   Dec-05-21 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 (replies)
zb2cr: Looks bad for Nepomniatchtchi. 2 Pawns down in a Queen endgame to an acknowledged master of such endgames is not just a death warrant, it is death. And with only 6 games left to make up a 2 point deficit--I don't think it can be done.
   Dec-04-21 Nepomniachtchi vs Carlsen, 2021 (replies)
zb2cr: So much for my expectation that Nepo would come out swinging in this game. I guess with 7 more games to go after today, he felt he had time to rest, get his equilibrium back, and push hard for a win on another day.
   Dec-04-21 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 (replies)
zb2cr: This was a great fighting game. Not super-precise on either player's part, but this game, they both came to fight. In the end, Magnus squeezed out a win. To me, it looked as though after about move 122, White had a durable advantage. Not enough to win until after Ian's mistake on move
   Nov-27-21 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 (replies)
zb2cr: Can someone explain to me why Carlsen played 51. g4, instead of 51. hxg5? I don't believe it's winning, but I like to understand the rationale for moves that baffle me.
   Nov-26-21 Nepomniachtchi vs Carlsen, 2021 (replies)
zb2cr: Looks like Nepomniachtchi is practically begging Calrlsen to play ... Ne6. I wonder why?
   Sep-13-21 A Sandrin vs W Shipman, 1946 (replies)
zb2cr: 48. .... Qf2+ does it. White moving the King to h1 is clearly fatuous. Therefore, 49. Kxh3, Qf3# is what wraps it up.
   Aug-30-21 A Stefanova vs M Sebag, 2010 (replies)
zb2cr: Straightforward. 29. Qxg6+ can be met in 3 ways: A. 29. ... Kh8; 30. Rxh7+, Qxh7 and white mates by taking on h7 with either Queen or Rook. B. 29. ... Qg7; 30. Qxg7+, Kxg7; 31. Rxh7+, Kf8; 32. Rh8+, Ke7; 33. R1h7#. C. the given game line.
   Aug-23-21 N Davies vs G Crawley, 1984 (replies)
zb2cr: 29. ... Re1+ starts things up. There are two lines: The simplest to see is 30. Kxe1, Qe2#. White can also try 30. Kf2. Seeing how Black mates in this line is a little harder, but Black can use 30.Kf2, Qe2+; 31. Kg3, Ng2#.
