   Jan-11-23 M Pranesh vs E Abdrlauf, 2023 (replies)
master8ch: Wow! Like Black (evidently,) I thought White was doomed.
   Jan-03-23 T Villiers vs S Sulskis, 2022
master8ch: 52...Rxa3+ either wins the White Bishop or, more likely, removes both bishops and leaves Black with three pawns (including a passer) to one, which should shorten the game considerably.
   Dec-18-22 Polgar vs M Hennigan, 1988
master8ch: 30.Bxg6 hxg6 31.f7+ Rxf7 32.Rh8+ Kxh8 33.Qxf7, and there's no good way to stop 34.Rh1++. (Neither faster nor better, but an interesting alternative.)
   Nov-02-22 NN vs Lasker / Maroczy, 1900 (replies)
master8ch: Why is this game included in a collection of losses by world champions if the champ didn't lose this one?
   Nov-02-22 Steinitz vs Chigorin, 1892
master8ch: 22...Qf2 would've been nice.
   Aug-06-22 Z Almasi vs Khalifman, 1997
master8ch: The game would've had a perfect ending had Black found 32...Qe4+ 33.Kh3 Rf6 34.g4 Qf3+ 35.Kh4 Rh6+ 36.Kg5 Qf6++.
   Aug-04-22 J Hector vs Plachetka, 1989 (replies)
master8ch: So much for obvious; I overlooked 24...f5.
   Jul-24-22 Caruana vs Nepomniachtchi, 2021
master8ch: 36.Rf7 wins the Black Bishop, since the only move to save it, 36...Bd8, momentarily cuts off the connection between Black's King and Rook, allowing the pretty 37.Rf8+ Nxf8 38.Be5+ Kg8 39.Nh6#.
   Jul-24-22 B Grachev vs Y Zinchenko, 2010 (replies)
master8ch: 42.Qh6+ leads to a pretty win whether or not Black captures the attacking Queen.
   Jun-19-22 Capablanca vs Spielmann, 1927
master8ch: What's wrong with 23.Qxb6? If 23...Rxb6, then 24.a8(Q)–and this new Queen is immune from capture.
