   Oct-19-21 Waldo L Waters
TheBish: According to these games, Black is OK!!
   Oct-19-21 R Thomas vs R J Waters, 1968 (replies)
TheBish: Interesting game, and great pun! (Based on "Mother" from Pink Floyd.) So many great verses in that song! Some other options (not necessarily relevant to this game): Mother, will they put me in the firing line? Mother, should I build the wall? Mother do you think she's ...
   Oct-19-21 A Tang vs Burke, 2015
TheBish: One of the most amazing finishes to a chess game I've ever seen. That said, it wasn't without mistakes as noted above. White erred with 28. Nf2? (28. Ng5! gives Black only a slight advantage according to the engine after 28...Rxg5! 29. Qxg5 Rf8 30. Qh6 e3+ 31. Bf3 Rf7 32. Bxb7 Qxd4)
   Oct-13-21 Razuvaev vs Z Mestrovic, 1981 (replies)
TheBish: White to play (38.?) "Medium/Easy" White wins an exchange with 38. Nh7!, i.e. 38...Kxh7 39. Rxf8 or 38...Rxc8 39. Nxf6+ (zwichenzug!) gxf6 40. Rxc8 with an elementary win. An oldie but a goodie! Not sure if I've seen this particular game position before, or just one from a similar ...
   Oct-12-21 G Orlov vs de Firmian, 1995
TheBish: Amazing how quickly Black's position becomes overwhelming. White's setup in the opening is suspect, especially the development of the knights. 8. Na3?! misplaces one knight, and even earlier 7. Nc2 seems not to be best. Either 7. Nb3 (shielding the b2 pawn) or 7. Nb5 (preparing Be3)
   Oct-12-21 Krogius vs Jansa, 1965 (replies)
TheBish: White to play (34.?) "Easy" Black's bishop is overworked, guarding both d8 and the long diagonal. This leads to the candidate move Rd8+, a deflection sacrifice (although temporary). 34. Rd8+! Bxd8 Or 34...Kg7 25. b8=Q wins a rook for a pawn. 35. Bc3+ Kg8 (35...f6 just gives away ...
   Oct-10-21 Wolff vs Waitzkin, 1995
TheBish: I think the problem was not that Josh didn't have a plan, but that it was the wrong plan! 17...Ng4? at first looks good (seeking to trade knight for bishop) but it comes at the cost of a pawn, 18. Bxb6!. Black nicely complicates by forcing the extra pawn to be doubled with a queen ...
   Oct-10-21 Waitzkin vs Benjamin, 1995
TheBish: Big blunder by Benjamin with 37...Re8?? 38. Rxd4! Rxd4 39. Nxf5+. Much better was 37...Nxb3 38. Nxf5+ Kf8 and Black is winning.
   Oct-07-21 I Krush vs Wang Yu, 1996 (replies)
TheBish: I. Krush - Yu. Yu is OK!!
   Oct-06-21 Chen Zou vs Sengupta, 2019
TheBish: <Chris Bennington: Black missed a win, I believe. 33. . . . RxF1 check appears to force a mate.> After 33...Rf1+ 34. Bc1! and Black has no time for 34...Rxh1 because of 35. Qxg7#.
