   Nov-07-15 Bronstein vs I Zaslavsky, 1938
Volcach: White gets away with 9.Be3 because the e pawn is immune! I missed that the pawn was hanging playing in an identical position, and my opponent took it. He quickly lost the knight after 10. Bf4, followed by d4. Despite my ruined kingside structure, I easily won the game up a piece ...
   Oct-11-15 Bologan vs Dlugy, 2015
Volcach: 34. e7!!!!!! Brilliant move. This game showed the power of the connected passed pawns. In the end, e7 is met by Nd6 and after the obvious Rxd6 Ke7 is met with Rd8, and White will be up a rook.
   Aug-06-15 Marshall vs Lasker, 1907 (replies)
Volcach: Even at move 41 Marshall had a chance to trade his Queen for the Rook with Qh5. Computer thinks the position is dead drawn
   Aug-06-15 Lasker vs Marshall, 1907 (replies)
Volcach: Marshall's knights are helpless in both the championship games I've looked at.
   Aug-06-15 Marshall vs Lasker, 1907 (replies)
Volcach: With 14.... d4, Black is not threatening Qf2, rather he is threatening Bg4, followed by a Rook infiltration on f2 with tactics on the king to follow. The endgame is very well played, Lasker's endgame skill was something to marvel.
   Aug-05-15 McShane vs Svidler, 2013 (replies)
Volcach: White allowed too many open files and diagonals against his King, he quickly succumbed to the onslaught. Personally I disliked White's position immediately after 16.exf5 gxf5. But I realized he was lost after 21...f4, there just wasn't a way to stem the tide.
   Aug-04-15 R E Andersen vs P Fossan, 2015
Volcach: I thought White might've gotten away with a perpetual and so I looked into the game deeper. After 24.Qg6 Rc1 25.Bf1 Nd2 26.Qh7 was a draw. The move I missed was 25... Rf6, and the checks run out.
   Aug-03-15 Adams vs Wojtaszek, 2015
Volcach: On move 24, Black could have played Bxh2, winning a pawn before taking the g5 Bishop. 8...e5 was a pretty cool move I missed, this move is of importance because it allows the Dark-squared Bishop to recapture while developing and avoiding an unnecessary Queen move to d6. I also ...
   Aug-03-15 S Collins vs Hebden, 2014
Volcach: White seems to be killing in the final position, how did Black escape with a draw? After Nf8 32. Qf3 White is attacking too many weaknesses in the Black camp. On the alternative Re8, Qf5 retains the pin while targeting the f6 pawn, after Qg7 33.Ng4 Qf7 44.Nxf6, White is overpowering
   Aug-02-15 V Zakhartsov vs A Gabrielian, 2015
Volcach: Instead of Rf2, White could have tried 37. h4. Threatening to play h5 and dislodge the queen from the h7-f5 diagonal. After Rb2 Qf3 Rxa2 h5 it looked as though white would develop a mating attack in some lines. Of course, Black isn't obligated to play Rb2, and I didn't look into any
