   Jan-15-22 84th Tata Steel Masters (2022) (replies)
Olsonist: When Gustafsson is good, he's quite good. I remember his call with Svidler on the Qa6 sac in Carlsen's rapid playoff against Carjack. But then there's the time when he seems to be drinking a lot of "coffee".
   Jan-04-22 R Lau vs Barsov, 1993 (replies)
Olsonist: A Tuesday making you think it's a Monday when it's actually a Tuesday.
   Dec-08-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
Olsonist: Nada in New York.
   Dec-06-21 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021 (replies)
Olsonist: <PawnSac> I think you meant 10. ... Qe7. I kind of get Nepo's idea with h5, Kf1, and the rook lift. But Carlsen still pretty much refuted that plan over the board. After 17. Re1 white has control of the e-file and the black rook is stuck defending his h pawn. He needs to go ...
   Nov-14-21 Psakhis vs D Paunovic, 1986
Olsonist: I preferred 35. h7 myself but both win. In fact, I think 32. Qg5+ achieves the same without the flashy rook sac.
   Sep-05-21 Aimchess US Rapid (2021) (replies)
Olsonist: I think everyone is too excited about booking up on the Traxler.
   Sep-01-21 Aronian vs J van Foreest, 2021
Olsonist: Nice. 41. ... Rxf8. 42. Rh8+ Maybe 41. is a Monday puzzle.
   Aug-21-21 Shankland vs Mamedyarov, 2021 (replies)
Olsonist: Nice win. Rb5+ is so nice. It's pretty much over after that.
   Jul-08-21 Ivanchuk vs Shirov, 1996 (replies)
Olsonist: There is no counter play. White is just going to capture the c-pawn with the two rooks. Nothing white can do about it. Then capture the f-pawn. Then advance k-side pawns. White has to avoid a perpetual but that's not hard.
   Jul-01-21 Ahues vs Sultan Khan, 1930 (replies)
Olsonist: Surprisingly easy but only because there isn't many choices to go wrong. The rook is pinned.
