   Dec-14-10 McShane vs Carlsen, 2010 (replies)
euripides: <david, max> I think it makes a big difference that Black cannot secure a pawn on e4. After 39...Bxb3 40.Rxb3 if Black plays 40...e4 White can play 41 fxe4 fxe4 42.Kf2 and win the e pawn with the rook. If Black plays anything else White can play e4 and fix the e5 pawn on a ...

euripides: For the same idea on the same move in the same variation and the same year: Fischer vs Benko, 1963
   Nov-19-10 Y Wan vs S Abu Sufian, 2009 (replies)
euripides: 28.Rh4+ also seems to do the job.
   Nov-11-10 Naiditsch vs M Nikolov, 2010 (replies)
euripides: Fantastic stuff.
   Nov-06-10 Mamedyarov vs Karjakin, 2010
euripides: <marmot> thanks - I had just deleted my post as I had noticed <28...Qc4 29.Rb8+ Kh7 30.Bf4 Qxe2 31.Qh3+> Kg6 after which as you say Black seems to be fine.
   Nov-02-10 S Bogner vs G Bwalya, 2010 (replies)
euripides: worth noticing the off-piste <43.Bf7+ Kf7 44.Rf6+ Ke7> 45.Rxf8 Bc6 mate.
   Oct-11-10 Grand Slam Chess Final (2010) (replies)
euripides: Qd2 Ke5 looks like a dreadful double blunder, but it's probably an effect of the technology.
   Oct-11-10 Carlsen vs Anand, 2010 (replies)
euripides: At least two of Carlsen's defeats - those against Adams and Anand - come from pressing too hard in a good position; a sign of impatience that may be a reaction to recent defeats. More a psychological glitch, I suspect, than a technical deficiency.
   Oct-09-10 E Peralta vs A Almiron, 2009 (replies)
euripides: After <55.Kd4 g5> the simplest seems 56.Kc5 gh (or Kg6 57.Kd6 Kf5 58.hxg5 and White is several tempi ahead) 57.Kd6 Kg6 58.Kxe6 Kg5 59.Kd6 Kg4 60.e6 Kxg2 61.e7 h3 62.e8=Q h2 63.Qxh5 h1=Q 64.Qxh1+ and White wins the pawn ending.
   Feb-25-10 R G Hegde vs S Palatnik, 1988 (replies)
euripides: Worth noticing 59...Be5 when White can run Black out of moves with 60.Re7 Bb8 61.Rg7.
