   Feb-05-12 Anand vs Kramnik, 2009
acme: With 36. Ne1, I think Vishy had the Ne1-d3-c5-d7 manoeuvre in mind. But once Vlad plays 37. Nf4, the other white N can simply move to c5 and threaten Nd7.
   Jan-29-12 Pentala Harikrishna (replies)
acme: Well done Harikrishna for winning Tata Steel Group B. See you in Group A next year!
   Jan-26-12 A Zinkl vs Metger, 1897 (replies)
acme: 23. Rf5! will force mate.
   Jan-25-12 Charousek vs Skultety, 1891 (replies)
acme: Why 17. Qe5? Why not the more forcing 17. Qg5+ Kd7 18. Qe7+ Kc6 19. Rf6+ Kb5 20. Qc5+ with mate next?
   Jan-24-12 V Akopian vs Fressinet, 2010 (replies)
acme: 37... Bc5 and it's curtains for white
   Jan-12-12 M Godard vs M Karthikeyan, 2012
acme: Fine win by the u-12 world champion but white hardly plays like an IM. 27. Nd6 seems dubious and missing 28... Nc4 is quite silly.
   Jan-11-12 Svidler vs M I Nepomnishay, 1996 (replies)
acme: Nice analysis! I kept trying to make 15. Bg5 work. But even so I feel your line is better than the text. The final position is not clearly winning for white. Black can try to swap queens with 20... Bc6 and pick up the f7 pawn while the Bf1 remains uncomfortably pinned.
   Aug-23-11 M Kolpakov vs Nikitin, 1963
acme: Thanks a lot <MartijnvanWingerden>!
   Aug-15-11 J Upmark vs Robin Johansson, 1995 (replies)
acme: Thanks for the 12-move no capture stalemate <dzechiel>
   Aug-07-11 Spassky vs H Niedermaier, 1986 (replies)
acme: Oh never mind, I missed 9. ...Nxf6. The key here is the bishop on d6 which won't allow 10. Qe5+. This is the problem when you remember patterns and try to make moves intuitively!
