   Nov-03-22 Sherzer vs S M Hill, 1991 (replies)
 
kbob: We have all seen the Nf7 sacrifice succeed for white in the Bd3 line. What I find surprising is that, instead of 10. Qd3, Stockfish prefers 10. Bd3! thus agreeing to play the same idea a full tempo down.
 
   Oct-02-22 D Gurevich vs D H Levin, 1985 (replies)
 
kbob: Gurevich got away with an unsound opening. Much better for black is 16. ... c4! so that a subsequent Qb6 would come with check. White would probably have to play 17. Nxd6 for very dubious compensation.
 
   Sep-03-22 V Rajlich vs F Doettling, 2001
 
kbob: <An Englishman> And furthermore, after 13. cxd7 black can play 13. ... Nxf4 if he wants to. Chess never ends.
 
   Feb-18-22 J Stupica vs S Cvetkovic, 1969 (replies)
 
kbob: Too bad white missed the variation 35. Qf8+ ... black resigns.
 
   Dec-22-21 Botvinnik vs Bronstein, 1951 (replies)
 
kbob: <Benzol> But on further research I read that Gayanne was Botvinnik's wife and they had a daughter named Olga, born 1942. So none of that jives with my recollections, and I suppose I must chalk it up to some kind of misunderstanding.
 
   Dec-09-21 Aronian vs Firouzja, 2020 (replies)
 
kbob: It's an armageddon game. The draw is conclusive.
 
   Nov-19-21 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2020
 
kbob: He never really came very close, but Black wanted to set up the only fortress draw with this material which is to trade all pawns and achieve K near the corner, Bg7, and Ne5. At that point the drawing recipe for black is to (1) Never move the knight again; (2) Never move the bishop ...
 
   Oct-02-21 Timman vs G Jones, 2007
 
kbob: commenting live on Radjabov-Carlsen, Meltwater Chess Champions Tour finals, 10/2/21, Jones said "I think 14. Kf2 is actually playable to maintain equality. Kf2 is not a very natural move if you think you have already blundered."
 
   Jul-28-21 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
 
kbob: Does anyone know why 11. .. Be6 is considered best for black, after he earlier made plans for a queenside fianchetto?
 
   Jul-08-21 Spassky vs Karpov, 1988
 
kbob: Karpov annotates 11. c3 Ngf6 12. Nc5! as slightly better for White. Stockfish here seems to prefers the gambit offer 11. h3.
