   Sep-28-23 J Gallagher vs Balashov, 1991
ajk68: Looking at computer analysis of f5, it was the critical mistake.
   Sep-22-23 P Johner vs F D Rosebault, 1910
ajk68: I saw the text and the possibility of 27. h4+. There is also the possibility of 26. Kh5. Neither line seemed to lead to a mate. They are both mates in 15 or 16. I'm not good that far out. I would have just played 24. Bxf8 with a massive advantage.
   Sep-18-23 Moreau vs Albin, 1903
ajk68: Can you say "bad bishop"?
   Sep-11-23 Z Almasi vs H Teske, 1990 (replies)
ajk68: <King.Arthur.Brazil:... Of course, W can delay a little: 26. Qh3 Qxh3+ 27. Kxg5 Re5+ 28. Kf4 Re4+ 29. Kf5 g6+ 30. Kg5 h6+ 31. Kf6 Qh4+ 32. g5 Qxg5# or 29. Kg5 h6+ 30. Kf5 g6+ 31. Kf6 Qh4+ 32. g5 Qxg5#.> 26. Qh3 Qxh3+ 27. Kxg5 Qh6+! 28. Kf5 Be4# It's much shorter! Be4# is ...
   Jul-22-23 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
ajk68: 23...Bxg4 keeps a slight advantage for black.
   Jul-10-23 Bronstein vs Geller, 1961 (replies)
ajk68: <NoChessPlayer: Rxf7 also works as mate in 3> No. It's a mate in 6. There's some hopeless piece sacrifices to extend it. The real hinge of the mate is what to do after Re4. In this case QxR, and continue with the mate pattern.
   Jul-07-23 Panov vs Taimanov, 1952 (replies)
ajk68: I'm surprised by 53. Qxe5+. It's a bit inaccurate. There's no reason to relieve the pin without taking the extra pawn move. e7 is clearly better. [I put it into the computer and it agrees.] Maybe, Panov was concerned about the reply a3 and thought he couldn't stop the pawn (a3, ...
   Jun-09-23 P Shuvalova vs A Maltsevskaya, 2021 (replies)
ajk68: I didn't consider any of the captures on h4. I saw that after 17. Rxd5 white is up a pawn with a much better, and active, position. Trying to win back a pawn should be the least of black's concerns on move 17. There is enough play in the position for black to escape with a draw. Being
   Apr-25-23 Carlsen vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
ajk68: Things were about equal until 19. Rxg7?
   Apr-19-23 A Matanovic vs B Rabar, 1949 (replies)
ajk68: My first thought was to take with the rook, but I couldn't see how to get the mate done when the sacrifice is not accepted. I then looked at sac'ing the queen and trying to double up the rooks, but the king escapes. Finally, I realized that after the offering the rook sac, white can ...
