FairyPromotion: Hey there everyone! In 2019 I wasn't able to follow chess as much (after the first 3 months), so thanks to all the lists posted so far. I did some quick digging, and here is my list. Note: I'm really torn this year for my #1 pick, as Karthikeyan's Q sac on move 9 seems to be
   May-07-19 Ding Liren vs Jakovenko, 2019 (replies)
FairyPromotion: <fredthebear: <FairyPromotion> Subtle or not, ethnic bashing is inappropriate. Your snide comment was useless, unnecessary, and offensive.> What the....? Dude, my post was merely a pun suggestion based on a very famous movie quote. ...
   Apr-22-19 I Saric vs A Sharafiev, 2015 (replies)
FairyPromotion: <Fredthebear says 75...RxRd8 draws for Black.> 75...Rxd8 draws only if white promotes to a major piece. However, both 76. exd8=B! & 76. exd8=N! are winning, and turns out rather easily. The minor piece just captures the g7 pawn, and afterwards it's not even needed. ...

FairyPromotion: <Sargon> Yeah, the knight sac was just the appetizer in that game. I hope eventually it'll be selected as GotD, too. ;)
   Apr-12-19 Leitao vs Caruana, 2010
FairyPromotion: Leitao Unpleasantness
   Mar-19-19 Topalov vs J Polgar, 2010
FairyPromotion: 43. Rxh2!! Is a very nice find <thecustomer>. Black can also try 43... Rhg1, but then 44. Rg2! wins at least an exchange with a winning rook endgame.
   Mar-14-19 Bronstein vs Bagirov, 1983 (replies)
FairyPromotion: <Straclonoor: Bagirov mentioned in 'Chess (Riga)' that 20....Bh3 goes to win or serious advantage. Yes, advantage, but not serious.> Straclonoor, thanks for sharing this Bh3 idea. Though, I won't agree with you that it is not serious. In engine evaluations usually ~1.4 ...

FairyPromotion: Good Knight Irina
   Feb-26-19 Morozevich vs Tkachiev, 2009 (replies)
FairyPromotion: I don't usually fail Tuesday puzzles, but I did so today. My instict was that I shall take the queen with 26. Qxe2, and that there should be a forced mate afterwards if black captures mine. I saw 26. Qxe2!? Rxe2 27. Bxd4! (D), after which 27...Rxd4 fails to 28. Ra8+ followed ...
   Feb-21-19 Wei Yi vs Fier, 2019 (replies)
FairyPromotion: Hmmmmm, upon replaying the game I noticed the great contrast in the name length these two have. GotD: Make a Long Story Short
