Ron: Earlier on this page I wrote: < Ron: Perhaps Carlsen didn’t explicitly state a cheating allegation is because he did not want to risk a defamation lawsuit. Remember, this tournament was in the US. US jurisdiction. The US, rightly or wrongly, has a reputation of being litigious. ...
   Oct-13-22 Euwe vs Sargon, 1979
Ron: As to Mr. Sullivan's idea, its pretty good, I plugged in to Stockfish 15: 20. g5 Nh5 21. Rxf7 Qd8 (if KxR, then d6 and Black's position gets heavily much worse) 22. Rf1 Rf8 23. Rxf8+ Bxf8 24. h4 Bc8 25. Be3 Bg7 26. Bf3 Qf8 27. Bxh5 gxh5 28. Nd2 h6 29. Ng3 hxg5 30. hxg5 Qf7 31. d6 Bf8 ...

   Sep-24-22 Keymer vs Saric, 2022
Ron: GM Karsten Muller discusses this endgame in Note the under-promotion to knight on White's 59th move. GM Muller says the computer's first choice though is 58. Rf8+
   Sep-17-22 Ivanchuk vs Beliavsky, 1988
Ron:'s computer analysis, at 4 fuel, agrees with Ivanchuk's 24th move. Ivanchuk eventually wins material. Chess combination do not necessarily have to start with a capture. I have a hunch excellent examples of these types of combination can be found in Ivanchuk's play.
