   Nov-26-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
MuzioFan: Where is that black knight headed now? Nd7-c5? I thought Carlsen had plenty of moves available, I don't see the point of redeveloping the knight immediately.
   Nov-19-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
MuzioFan: <offramp: the former, it seems.
   Nov-16-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
MuzioFan: <OhioChessFan: Ok Lupara I thought a move did it. Wonder what it missed.> FWIW Svidler agreed that there was probably a mate in there after the creative <68..Bh4>, the point being that white is in Zugzwang and has to move the bishop, after which 69..Ne2 becomes ...

MuzioFan: <JAMESROOK>: Based on the live commentary by Grischuck, Guramishvili and Svidler: White has a pawn more, but it is the backwards d3 pawn which is as good as useless. Conversely black has the bishop pair, more active pieces and more room. White's position is cramped, and it ...

MuzioFan: <Mateo:> 15.b5 gives back the a7-g1 diagonal to black's DSB, doesn't it?

MuzioFan: <BOSTER>: That didn't age well.
   Jul-01-18 Charousek vs K Schneider, 1891
MuzioFan: <djvanscoy>: What about 11..Qg6 12.Qh4+ Ke8 13.exd6 <cxd6> 14.Nc3 Bf5 15.Bxd6 Kd7 (not 15..Nf6 16.Rae1+ Kd7 17.d5! with nothing better than perpetual) 16.Be5 Nf6, which looks drawish to me. Black can hold in all lines so it seems I was a bit too optimistic, but really ...
   May-27-18 Team White vs Team Black, 2017 (replies)
MuzioFan: <kwid> Thank you for the lines, those look interesting! I'll take a deeper look at them soon, but since they were sidelines of a variation that we didn't go into I don't have much analysis prepared on them. <centralfiles> I had <25.Red1 Rb8 26.f5 b5>, but now that
   Jan-15-18 Svidler vs Giri, 2018 (replies)
MuzioFan: In the post-match interview yesterday Giri joked that he wanted to draw this match and win the next one. I don't know who he is facing next round, but Giri aiming for a draw seems like a solid strategy.
