   Dec-02-20 K Shirazi vs O H Castro Rojas, 1991 (replies)
Mendrys: I think this was made easier by the way that black’s pieces are placed on the queenside, they are completely incapable of participating in a defense of their king.
   Nov-20-20 Chiburdanidze vs V Malaniuk, 1982 (replies)
Mendrys: Pretty much as inconsequential control of a long diagonal as there ever was.
   Nov-17-20 Y Wang vs Y Hou, 2013 (replies)
Mendrys: If the pun does in fact refer to the fact that both Yue and Hou are from the “east” or the fact that the game was played in the Chinese championship it should be seen as racist. As long as it is not insulting, hurtful or plays to stereotypes there is nothing wrong with a pun ...
   Sep-30-20 X Zhang vs Yu Ruiyuan, 2009 (replies)
Mendrys: 22. Qxe6 is move that Zhang should have seen was really bad. 22. Qc3 and she would have been in much better shape.
   Sep-19-20 Adianto vs Yusupov, 1983 (replies)
Mendrys: Too bad Adianto didn't see 22. fxg5 hxg5 23. Bxg5 and he is in clover with his dark squared bishop dominating the king side. 22. Ne3? lets black exchange the pawns to his benefit, opening lines to the white king and making the doubled rooks on the "a" file look silly. I'm sure this ...
   Sep-07-20 Feldman vs Korchnoi, 1953
Mendrys: With moves like 37...Rg4 and 41...Rd6 it is apparent that Korchnoi didn't want the bishop on g6 though I'm only guessing that he played 42...g6 to give his king a little room by offering up the pawn. It didn't matter as long as he was able to carry out his plan on the queen side of ...
   Sep-03-20 Navara vs J Helbich, 1998 (replies)
Mendrys: Every bit of this game was already established theory, as noted some time ago by Conrad93, E G F Hellers vs de Firmian, 1989 . 23...Bb7? was a mistake. 23...Kg7! draws. The real puzzle position should have been at move 24: [DIAGRAM]
   Aug-18-20 J Garcia Padron vs Tal, 1977
Mendrys: <goodevans: <al wazir: Tal missed an easy draw: 44...g5 45. Kxf3 Kf7 46. Ke4 Kf6.> I can't understand why Tal didn't play that. It's obvious that after 44...Kf7? 45.g5 black's h-pawn is doomed...>It could be that Tal had expected 45 Kxf3 where 45...Kf6 would also draw. ...
   Aug-14-20 S Shipov vs V L Ivanov, 1995 (replies)
Mendrys: It would be easy to say that after 18. Qd3 black is fine since, after a long think, a strong chess engine like Stockfish evaluated the position as 0.00. The reality is that if you are going to have such positional "irregularities" as having every one of your pieces on the edge of ...
   Jul-05-20 K Osterberg vs J Christensen, 1998 (replies)
Mendrys: 6. Nxf7 is a bold Knight sacrifice so early in the game. It's really wishful thinking though as white can't drum up the resources to carry out a successful attack partly due to blacks king side pawns I think. Rather than being a liability their advancement inhibits white's attack. ...
