   Aug-01-21 Nunn vs A Pope, 1972 (replies)
halito27: Blunder was unfortunate, but White's attack pretty much petered out before it. Once black gets the rook on g8 and knight f8, I don't see any way for white to press it. In fact, Black prob already has an edge, due to the active pieces and extra pawn. Not exactly sure where Nunn's ...
   Jun-26-21 R Mamedov vs Areshchenko, 2007 (replies)
halito27: Once again, <chrisowen> seems to have gotten it right. "lecture vindicate dazzle i vast japs maps jams buzzy waggy firk" is especially astute.
   Jun-24-21 Svidler vs M Nedobora, 1994 (replies)
halito27: <NBZ> I've been doing the same! A nice extra: you can then play out the position on the Analysis Board. Note to CG: I would still PREFER to have our engine fixed!
   Jun-16-21 Kasparov vs Beliavsky, 1981 (replies)
halito27: Are you guys seriously discussing Route 66 without mentioning Nat King Cole? Like...seriously?!
   May-31-21 T Oyunbaatar vs I Chahrani, 2008 (replies)
halito27: For once, I agree with <chrisowen>.
   May-26-21 I Ibragimov vs Brodsky, 1991 (replies)
halito27: <agb2002> C.2) "55... Nxf5 56.Nf8+ Kg7 57.Ne6+ wins decisive material." This endgame is actually pretty hard to win: black's going to have four connected pawns in exchange for the rook. White should be better, but knight + rook vs. knight + 4 pawns is not an automatic win. ...
   Apr-15-21 B Yildiz vs J Gokbulut, 2019 (replies)
halito27: I get that the pun refers to April 15, the day US taxes are due, and the fact that most people "e-file" (electronically file) their tax returns. But there's nothing significant about the e-file in this game. It's just a game that happened to be played on April 15.
   Apr-07-21 McShane vs Damljanovic, 2005 (replies)
halito27: <iron maiden> Black could have played just about any other 32nd move and avoided mate. Taking the queen off the h4-d8 diagonal was a blunder.
   Nov-11-20 Lutikov vs A Malevinsky, 1977
halito27: <TheaN> got it: after 34. Kxg3 Rxf3! (and not Rxh3) is the killer. It's trickier than it looks!
   Nov-10-20 Van der Sterren vs V Malaniuk, 1987 (replies)
halito27: <brulla> After 22. Qg4+ Kf8, how does white proceed? Any check on f5 is met with Bf6 followed by Qg6 and the black king escapes via e8. Remember, white has invested a bishop into this attack; once it's neutralized, black has the edge.
