   Jul-12-21 B Adhiban vs Aronian, 2021 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: I wonder whether white realised, when he played 36. f4, that black can move his knight to e4, since Re3 doesn't win a piece. Why not?
   Jul-09-21 G Feher vs V Priehoda, 1995 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: Computer says Rb6 is least bad for Black. But it's around +2.
   Jul-04-21 J Polgar vs Anand, 1999 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: < Brenin: Among a number of moves I don't understand here, why not 20 ... Nf6, with the threat of 21 ... Ne4?> 21.Bxe5 and knight is pinned.
   Jul-02-21 Vocaturo vs Van Kampen, 2010 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: <I wonder why Vocaturo didn't go 21.Bh6> Likewise. ..Rc7. 22.Qg8+ and mate next move.
   Jul-01-21 Giri vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2021
Andrew Chapman: Highly instructive
   Jul-01-21 Ahues vs Sultan Khan, 1930 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: 47.Rc1,say, to protect the queen from being skewered Qh1+ 48. Ke2 Qxg2+ 49.Ke1 Qg1+ 50.Ke2 Qf2 mate.
   Jun-30-21 Korchnoi vs Najdorf, 1971 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: <I'm a lot surprised Najdorf missed 38...Qd3+> Time trouble?
   Jun-27-21 NN vs G H Derrickson, 1860 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: <9...Bxf3 10. Qxf3 Qxg5 11. Qxg7+ Kd8> 11.Qxf7+ followed by Qf8+ and Qxa8? Possibly Black then has an attack on the King side, but I suspect White would survive it.
   Jun-23-21 Vidmar vs Przepiorka, 1906 (replies)
Andrew Chapman: <I think this was the first position of the day I commented on in 2012. I didn't get it then and I didn't get it again today for the same reason. On move 38 I insisted on Rh7+ and simply could not 'see' Qh7+. Full marks for consistency.> Oxspawn's 2012 confession is ...
   Jun-21-21 Grischuk vs Lupulescu, 2021
Andrew Chapman: <It would appear black is forced to trade queens and go into a lost endgame.> I don't think black can even win the c pawn - bishop takes, d rook to c3; rook takes, Nxf6.
