   Oct-07-22 Vachier-Lagrave vs E Can, 2022 (replies)
 
Nerwal: <Presumably Vachier had his reasons for not playing 8.f4 Qc7 9.g4, a reason Black's seventh move has long been considered dubious.> Presumably his main reason was that you're mixing up 6. ♗e3 e5 7. ♘b3 ♗e6 (main) and 6. ♗e2 e5 7. ♘b3 ♗e6?!.
 
   Sep-30-22 Suetin vs Korchnoi, 1960
 
Nerwal: 20. ♕g2 is really strange. Perhaps 20. ♕f2 was played instead , but it still doesn't solve the mystery manoeuver 23. ♖d1 24. ♖d4 25. ♖d1
 
   Sep-22-22 D Charochkina vs L Garifullina, 2022 (replies)
 
Nerwal: Atfer the faulty 36... ♕f7 the engine found the absolutely amazing move 37. ♗g7!! keeping the game balanced.
 
   Sep-16-22 O Girya vs M Yakimova, 2022
 
Nerwal: the point of 60. ♖c2 is 60... ♘b4 61. ♖b2 and the knight is lost because of the position of the black king on the sixth rank.
 
   Sep-16-22 O Girya vs N Pogonina, 2022
 
Nerwal: Critical was something like 87. ♔g5 ♗g6 88. ♔h6 ♖d5 89. ♗c3 ♖d8 90. ♖a7 ♗c2 ♔xh5 and White has much better winning chances than in the game anyway.
 
   Sep-13-22 N Pogonina vs L Garifullina, 2022 (replies)
 
Nerwal: White was "completely" winning the entire time and probably just missed ♖xd6 and ♖xf2. But now I remember what Lautier once wrote : If you can't calculate a forced win, you're not winning.
 
   Aug-27-22 I A Zaitsev vs E Ubilava, 1967 (replies)
 
Nerwal: White has lost all initiative and Black is two pawns up for nothing. Back then the games were adjourned after the time control at move 40, so Ubilava would have all the time in the world to work out the details on how to convert this position. Therefore playing on was a waste of time
 
   Aug-27-22 Polugaevsky vs B Malich, 1965 (replies)
 
Nerwal: If we can't find any subsantial improvement later on, that means the decision 9... d5 was likely wrong.
 
   Jul-20-22 M Esserman vs A L'Ami, 2017
 
Nerwal: 31... ♘xd5 and 32... ♖df7 already do not make any sense. My guess is that 31. gxf5 was played instead of 31. g5.
 
   Jul-07-22 Anand vs Kramnik, 2008
 
Nerwal: <shouldn't white play for a win, here?> a) 62. cxd5 ♔g6 63. ♖e5 ♗f6 wins back the pawn; b) 62. ♖xd5 ♖xd5 63. cxd5 ♔f6 64. c4 ♔e5 65. ♔b2 ♔d4 66. ♔b3 ♗f8 and the pawns cannot advance further.
