   Feb-16-19 A Gara vs I Krush, 2018 (replies)
bezofu: Those two are fairly straightforward. I was more worried by the obnoxious 108. Ra3+ Kg4 109. Ra4+ Kg5, refusing to give up the opposition. I suppose 110. Ke4 Kg4 111. Ra8 would work?
   Feb-16-19 B Sawyer vs M Sana, 2009 (replies)
bezofu: Yes, that's a neat one. It looks like I played myself with the wrong move order, though. Now that I look at it, I wonder whether Qd4+ Ke2 Qe4+ is winning. If Qe3 Qg2+ Qf2 Bb5+ Ke3 Qe4+ Kd2 Qd3+ Ke1 Rxc1#. If Kf2 Nd3+. But if Kd2 Qg2+ Ke3 and I'm struggling to find a move. Nc2+ ...
   Feb-16-19 N Grandelius vs A Moiseenko, 2014
bezofu: Suffering? I wouldn't say so. Black was fine until 61...Nf7, when he walked into a two-move tactic that allowed White to unleash his completely useless, light-squared Bishop. Had he played 61...Nb7 or 61...Ke7, White's last remaining plan would've been to play 62. Bh5 Bxh5 63. Kxh5 ...
   Feb-16-19 Eliskases vs G A Thomas, 1937 (replies)
bezofu: 20...c5?? Really? I'd rather play the Black side of King's Indian against Kramnik in his prime than make such move.
   Feb-16-19 S Prudnikova vs A Santeramo, 2016
bezofu: Who in his right mind picks 15. e4 ahead of 15. 0-0?
   Feb-15-19 C Poulsen vs O'Kelly, 1951
bezofu: For better or worse, Black should've tried 23...a4, deflecting the Queen from the crucial diagonal. If 24. Qd3 b5 stops the Knight from jumping to c4 and 24. Qf3 Bb5 does the same while threatening to take the hanging piece.
   Feb-15-19 Kosteniuk vs D Harika, 2019
bezofu: 14...Nxd4 15. Bb2 is awkward for Black. If 15...Nf5 16. g4 will eventually pick up both g7 and h7 pawns. If 15...e5 16. f4 e4 17. Bf1 seem to accomplish the same thing: 17... Ne6 18. f5 and 17...Nf5 18.g4, deflecting the Knight from it's defensive duties. Strategically speaking, ...
   Feb-15-19 Kasparov vs Le Quang Liem, 2017
bezofu: It looks like the right sequence was 14. Qe2 Bg4 15. Qf1, parking the Queen on a square where it cannot be harassed. Kasparov chose the more active move, but ended up wasting a lot of time. As a result, 19. Nc5 is a rather poor tactic that might release White Queen from it's awkward ...
   Feb-15-19 Eliskases vs W Winter, 1937
bezofu: Black simply didn't do anything constructive in this game. 20...Ne6 is already dubious. He could've played 20...Re7, overprotecting the Queenside and keeping the f8-Knight on the board to gain Kingside counterplay later. Something like f7-f6, g7-g5, Nf8-g6, f6-f5 and, eventually, ...
   Feb-15-19 R Nezhmetdinov vs M Ujtelky, 1964 (replies)
bezofu: This game is one complicated, psychological warfare. After immobilizing all his pieces and settling for permanently weak dark squares on the Queenside, Ujtelky defiantly drops an Exchange, hoping to play 32...h5 and then win the following game of light-square checkers. When ...
