   Jul-28-17 Navara vs Leko, 2017 (replies)
Valiantangel: Deep calculation ...probably he saw this at move 30. 15...b5 was better...and Nb8 was the tilting point...B never got back into the game
   Jun-04-15 N Benmesbah vs N Maisuradze, 2015
Valiantangel: Moral of the game? Hmmm never castle in a "hole" ridden area. Its an uphill task
   Oct-21-10 Anand vs Y Wang, 2010 (replies)

   Oct-01-07 H Wang vs S Megaranto, 2007 (replies)
Valiantangel: 5...Ne7 6.0-0 Black seems to be doing well.Move 9 is the end of opening theory.Even Kasparov drew in this position in 2003. 11.h3 was a waste of tempo!It only help Black to break open White K-side later on. After 13...O-O-O you can see that Nb3 is displaced.c4 could hav been ...
