   Jul-15-22 Giri vs Duda, 2022
 
Andrew Chapman: Stockfish gives 34. Qh1 with +2.2. One point seems to be to get to c1!
 
   Jun-08-22 Wang Hao vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2022 (replies)
 
Andrew Chapman: Queen in Siberia, I think Daniel King might possibly say.
 
   Jun-05-22 Giri vs So, 2022
 
Andrew Chapman: Looks like this was a draw - which counts as a win for black, according to the rules?
 
   May-25-22 Vasiukov vs Kholmov, 1964 (replies)
 
Andrew Chapman: <i had 25. Bxg7 Bxg7, 26. Qh5 Qh6, 27. Nf6+ Qxf6, 28. Qxh7#> 27..Kh8 I think.
 
   Apr-28-22 J Magem Badals vs J Oms Pallisse, 2010 (replies)
 
Andrew Chapman: <I couldn't find a response to 19...Qe7. After 20.Nf6+ Kh8, 21. Qe4 gxf6, 22. Qh5, Black simply plays 22... e5. Stockfish suggests first 21.Be5, a brilliant move which solves the problem. Now if Ra8, then Qe4 gxf6, 22. Qh5, and Black loses the queen.> In case anyone ...
 
   Apr-25-22 Carlsen vs Le Quang Liem, 2022 (replies)
 
Andrew Chapman: Mouse slip - after Qd4, it's a draw by perpetual.
 
   Apr-19-22 D Cooper vs O Sarapu, 1970 (replies)
 
Andrew Chapman: If Nc4 or d3, then Black has Bxg2+, winning another pawn, after which g4 looks overwhelming. Not sure if that is the best, but looks good enough.
 
   Apr-18-22 B Katalymov vs G Ilivitsky, 1959 (replies)
 
Andrew Chapman: Why are people saying that Black is up two pawns after Bxg6? I make it one pawn and can't immediately see how he wins a second one.
 
   Apr-14-22 Tal vs E Bhend, 1959 (replies)
 
Andrew Chapman: <Several endorsers of this pun so I must be missing something.> I think the idea is that he was under intense pressure but didn't break - like bending a piece of wood until it almost breaks - but still holds.
 
   Apr-12-22 M Shapir (Porat) vs B Lengyel, 2008 (replies)
 
Andrew Chapman: I saw that Rxg3 wins a pawn and leaves black with a supported past pawn, and didn't look further. It's -2.3 according to an engine so at least it doesn't throw everything away.
