   Jan-21-21 M Atabayev vs Wojtaszek, 2019 (replies)
goodevans: Once white had established a B on f6 it was always going to pose problems if he could prize open the g- or h-file or, better still, both. In a mere handful of moves he'd done just that pretty much unopposed. When I played through this game I was under the mistaken impression that ...
   Jan-20-21 Zilberman vs Sutovsky, 1994 (replies)
goodevans: The position after <26...Qa6> is a repeat of the position after <24...Qa6> so white could have continued to repeat with <27.Qb6>. The fact that he chose not to can only mean he thought either that black had missed a stronger move first time around (if he did then
   Jan-20-21 Carlsen vs Fressinet, 2006 (replies)
goodevans: <al wazir> 25...Nb4 was not a good move indeed but <25...b4> would not have been good either. It robs the N of the b4 square meaning white can play <26.Rxd5> without succumbing to a N-fork. Black would then have moves like Bg3 and Rf5 to worry about. On the other
   Jan-18-21 Popovych vs E Formanek, 1969 (replies)
goodevans: This particular 'Poisoned Pawn Variation' has produced plenty of sharp games and this is up there with the sharpest and most bamboozling. Checking out a couple of opening databases shows that black has hugely more success with <11...dxc3> than <11...Nxe5> (~60% vs. ...
   Jan-16-21 L Galojan vs E Paehtz, 2009 (replies)
goodevans: A Tuesday puzzle repeated on a Saturday? Maybe they intended to start the puzzle at <37...?> black to play as per <An Englishman>'s suggestion on page 1 of the comments. Another woefully missed opportunity.
   Jan-14-21 R H Steinmeyer vs Berliner, 1959 (replies)
goodevans: I see that <woodenplayer> has made a similar response to some older comments. l must admit that 34.a2 was the first move I looked at and once I'd checked it out I didn't bother to look for alternatives. Luckily for me it seems these don't quite pan out.
   Jan-14-21 D Donchev vs Topalov, 1989 (replies)
goodevans: <Mar-29-15 bharat123: I Think White missed 12.Nxd5.> 12.Nxd5 would have won a pawn. Either <both> players missed this or they realised that it was nothing for black to be concerned about. It seems to be all about the two LSBs... <12.Nxd5 Qf7 13.Nc3/e3> would have
   Jan-11-21 J Rezek vs P Kipasso, 2001 (replies)
goodevans: <Aiwass-Loki Farage-a-Bandana Fanta-Jab, And Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now.> Tried that first in Manc (obviously) but I can only seem to make in work in broad Geordie. Maybe I'm being picky.
   Jan-07-21 A Simutowe vs S Tofte, 2009
goodevans: As <46.Bg8+> was unnecessary (46.Bf7 immediately delivers the same mate a move quicker) l can't help wondering whether Simutowe was just toying with his opponent, giving him the false hope he'd follow up with <47.Nh6??> (threatening 48.Nf7#). If so, that would have ...
   Jan-06-21 Chekhover vs Lasker, 1935 (replies)
goodevans: <goodevans: [...] Am I right in thinking that <28.Kd3> would have been a dead draw...> l was thinking that white's N, K and a-pawn could just sit there and do nothing but of course white will soon run out of pawn moves on the other side of the board. I guess I'll never
