   Dec-31-21 J L Hammer vs Carlsen, 2002
Sergash: Jon Ludvig Hammer was born the same year than Magnus Carlsen and in the same country. They both were 11 years old when they played this game. Carlsen was already rated 2127 Elo. More than a year later, in april 2003, Hammer will be rated 1983. <1...d7-d5> It seems that until ...
   Dec-31-21 Carlsen vs J Svanholm Fogh, 2002
Sergash: <40.Rh7-h8+ +-> Mate in 10 moves. White had a mate in 9 moves with 40.h4-h5! Rc8-c7 (40...Kd8-e8 41.Rh7-h8+ Ke8-f7 42.Rh8xc8 Kf7-g7 43.c6-c7 and mate 5 moves later. Stockfish 14 AVX2 64 bits) 41.Rh7xc7 Kd8xc7 42.h5-h6 Kc7-b6 43.Kc3-b4 Kb6-c7 44.h6-h7 Kc7-d8 45.h7-h8Q+ Kd8-e7 ...
   Dec-21-21 B Skjoldan vs Carlsen, 2002
Sergash: <40.Kg1-h1 -+> More precise is 40.Kg1-f1 a5-a4 -+ or 40...Bd6-c5 -+ Stockfish 14 AVX2 64 bits, but it would not have changed the result of the game. <40...Be3-c5 -+> 40...a5-a4! -+ Stockfish 14 AVX2 64 bits. <41.e5-e6 -+> Or 41.Rc6-c8+ Kh8-h7 42.Rc8-b8 a5-a4! -+ ...
   Dec-06-21 O Hole vs Carlsen, 2002 (replies)
Sergash: <29...Re6-b6? 30.b2-b3 Kg7-f6 31.Bd5-c4 Kf6-e5 +-> The only playable move here is 29...Re6-e1+▢ 30.Kg1-f2 Re1-b1▢ 31.Rf4xd4▢ Rb1xb2+ 32.Kf2-e3▢ Kg7-f6 +- possibly winning for White still... Stockfish 14 AVX2 64 bits. <32.Kg1-f1?! g6-g5 33.Rf4-f2 ...
   Sep-05-21 Carlsen vs K Trygstad, 2002
Sergash: <28...h6xg5 ⩲> 28...Qc7-d8! = Stockfish 14 AVX2 64 bits. <29.Qd2xg5 => 29.Bh4xg5! ⩲ Stockfish 14 AVX2 64 bits. <29...c5-c4?? 30.f3-f4! +-> Losing the game! 29...Re8-e5▢ 30.Qg5-g3 Kg8-h7▢ 31.Bh4-g5 Re5xg5▢ 32.Qg3xg5 Bg7-d4+▢ ...
   Aug-28-21 Carlsen vs Aarland, 2002
Sergash: <35.Be1-c3 Be7xh4 36.Bc3xe5 Rd8-d2 37.a3-a4! Bh4-d8 +-> 35.h4-h5! +- Stockfish 14 AVX2 64 bits. <38.Rc6-d6! Rd2xd6 39.Be5xd6 Kf7-e6 40.Bd6-f8 +-> Forcing the exchange of the rooks is understandable and very human. There is also is 38.Ka2-a3!? +- with an easy win. ...
   Mar-13-21 Capablanca vs A Fiol, 1901
Sergash: <Position after 39.Qa7xf2> [DIAGRAM] <39...c6xb5?? 40.Ba6xb5▢ Bd5xb3 41.Qf2-e3 Qh3-g2+ 42.Ke2-e1▢ Qg2-h1+ ⩱> Here is where Fiol lost his winning advantage... after missing several forced mates... Maybe he was short on time? Black is still winning ...
   Feb-23-21 Capablanca vs E Corzo, 1901
Sergash: <31.a5-a6 -+> Even stronger is 31.Ra7-c7! Rb2-a2 32.b3-b4 -+ Stockfish 12 - 64 bits POPCNT. <31...Rb2xb3? 32.Ra7-c7 b5-b4 33.a6-a7 Rb3-a3 34.Rc7-c8+ Kf8-e7 35.a7-a8Q 1-0> As noticed by <NBZ>, this is a mistake. Though also losing, Black would have offered a better ...
   Feb-14-21 L Paredes vs Capablanca, 1901
Sergash: <13...c7-c6 14.c3-c4 -+> 13...e4xf3e.p.! 14.g2xf3 g7-g5! -+ Δ 15.Be3xg5? Rh8-g8 Stockfish 12 - 64 bits POPCNT. <14...a7-a6 15.Be3-b6 Ba4xb3 16.a2xb3 Ne7-g6 17.g2-g3 Bf8-e7! 18.Kg1-f2 h7-h5! 19.h2-h4 -+> Strange move... More logical would be 14...b7-b6! -+ ...
   Feb-10-21 Capablanca vs E Delmonte, 1901 (replies)
Sergash: <9...d7-d6?! +-> Seems logical, but better are: A) 9...Ng8-h6 10.Ra1-c1 b7-b6 (or 10...f7-f6 11.Rc1-c3 +- Stockfish 12 - 64 bits POPCNT) 11.Nd2-c4 +- Stockfish 12 - 64 bits POPCNT. B) 9...b7-b6 10.Nd2-c4 +- Stockfish 12 - 64 bits POPCNT. <10.Ra1-c1 +-> Good enough, but ...
