   Sep-11-22 Dominguez Perez vs Firouzja, 2022 (replies)
guenther42: Completely missing 24. Bg6+ and black loses queen.
   Jan-17-22 Duda vs Rapport, 2022
guenther42: Duda visualized the 10-move sequence: forcing a queen exchange on move 30, then applying Alpha Zero active King to help immobilize Black's Kingside structure, making the 41....f5 linchpin seem inevitable. Black could have fought for queenside base pawn on c5, not allowing both ...
   Jan-07-22 Kosteniuk vs P Shuvalova, 2021 (replies)
guenther42: Alexandra Kosteniuk's Leela-like GP is a beauty. 23...Ra7 intended doubling the rooks on the A-file, but the King rook never made it to A8. Yes, setting up the "sacrifice" Bxd7. Yummy. The house of cards came crumbling down. Beautiful chess.
   May-24-20 Firouzja vs Giri, 2020
guenther42: Devilish efficency by 16-year-old Alireza Firouzja!
   Nov-07-19 Taimanov vs Korchnoi, 1973
guenther42: What an exciting game!
   Jul-07-19 GCT Croatia (2019) (replies)
guenther42: Whoops! NOT the draw with Aronian, but the draw with Mamedyarov--THAT was the AZ-like game Carlsen saved.
   Jul-07-19 Carlsen vs Mamedyarov, 2019
guenther42: Whoops! Not Aronian, but Mamedyarov.
   Nov-26-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
guenther42: Sorry to read so many shallow judgments denigrating a match full of exciting chess. These guys are simply evenly matched over 12 classical games. Check out the Alpha Zero analysis. Alpha zero agreed with 90-95% of the moves. B players with attitudes, geez! Disappointment with a ...
   Nov-20-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
guenther42: These are fighting games, exciting draws. Disappointed? So what? These guys are the two highest rated players in the world--and they show why. Look how frequently that the lesser GM commentators fail to anticipate what either player is going to do. Caruana and Carlsen repeatedly ...
   Oct-15-18 T Krnan vs Ding Liren, 2015
guenther42: Masterful endgame play by Ding Liren.
