   Sep-20-22 Niemann vs Carlsen, 2022 (replies)
halito27: <EvanTheTerrible> I think 2.c4 still wins.
   Aug-16-22 E Bataev vs V Popov, 1999 (replies)
halito27: Am I the only one questioning this? In the game, if white plays 40. Nxd8 Rxg3+ 41. Qxg3 Qxg3+ 42. Kf1, white has two rooks and a knight for the queen and I don't see a win for black. 42. Qd3+ Kf1 43. Nf4 is simply met by 43. ...Ra2 & I don't see any mates. Other white tries at move
   Jun-15-22 Le Quang Liem vs Shankland, 2022
halito27: 31 ...Nc3 is a tactical error. 31... Rxd1+ 32 Qxd1 Qf8 preserves the balance.
   Mar-18-22 Bogoljubov vs Ahues, 1930
halito27: <King.Arthur.Brazil> Thanks for responding: I like the basic idea for black, but white has some tactics. In your line, after 35...c5 36 f6! is stronger than your Ke2, threatening both Rg7+ and Rxd5. If we exchange white's f-pawn for black's d-pawn, black has a simple 3-to-2 ...
   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 ...

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. ...
