   Dec-02-22 D Dvirnyy vs R Akesson, 2014 (replies)
 
goodevans: <28.Nfd4 proved a clever shot> Indeed so. White must have seen it when he played 21.Nce5 (else the move has no point). Black couldn't have seen it coming otherwise he'd just have taken 22...Bxc6. I can only imagine he spent half a dozen moves thinking he'd trapped White's N ...
 
   Nov-30-22 Tata Steel India (2022) (replies)
 
goodevans: <moronovich: Viva la Wijk !> I agree. Always among the best tournaments of the year, both 'Masters' and 'Challengers'. <nok: Mamedyarov at 3/3. Infinite performance...> 3/3 = 1 not infinity. Somehow I find people getting basic maths concepts wrong even more depressing ...
 
   Nov-28-22 Zaw Win Lay vs Zaw Oo, 1999 (replies)
 
goodevans: Black appears to have demonstrated more foresight in his resignation than in any of his play leading up to that point. Nice pun. Amusing and apt.
 
   Nov-27-22 P Haba vs J Sodoma, 2011 (replies)
 
goodevans: <Gregor Samsa Mendel: The Computer says that white would have maintained a winning advantage after 31 Bh6.> True, but White had already missed a simpler (I think) win with <28.Qg5> instead of 28.Qg4. [DIAGRAM] With Black no longer able to defend with 28...g6 he instead
 
   Nov-27-22 Flohr vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1954 (replies)
 
goodevans: What a fascinating game. I've spent even longer today going over it than usual. White definitely had the upper hand at one point and it was surprising how effective the ...h5/...h4 advance was at getting Black back into the game. Another surprise, to me at least, was White giving ...
 
   Nov-26-22 P Zarnicki vs F Fiorito, 2000 (replies)
 
goodevans: I always thought it best to avoid all this with 3.d4 rather than 3.c4 then play c4 at an opportune moment later on. Seemed to work every time for me at least in the opening. Of course, I was quite often capable of nausing it up later on.

goodevans: User: PeterLalic "Member since Jul-30-10 ยท Last seen Nov-25-22" but hasn't kibitzed since Jan-05-15. Will having this recent and powerful win as GOTD change that?
 
   Nov-24-22 M Sibarevic vs Bukic, 1976 (replies)
 
goodevans: <Teyss: Impressive game, no less than five sacs in 20 moves: 10.Bxb5 even if the piece is regained 2 moves later...> 10.Bxb5 is a genuine sac if, as is usually the case, Black plays 10...Bb7. The Opening Explorer has 14 games with the position after 11.e5 Qb8 12.Ndxb5 Qb8 ...
 
   Nov-23-22 Zhao Xue vs N Pogonina, 2015 (replies)
 
goodevans: I did understand the pun as I too am a "local British thing".
 
   Nov-23-22 A Yegiazarian vs K Asrian, 2006
 
goodevans: <Fiddlerookie> 27.b4 doesn't work because after 27...a5 28.bxa5 Bxa5 Black has time to play 29...Bc7 and 30...Bd6 (or 29...Bd8 and 30...Be7) and will win the pawn anyway. The way to save the pawn would have been 27.e4 so that if 27...a5 then 28.Be3 and then if 28...Be7 White
