   Nov-30-16 G Cools vs L Boeye, 2009 (replies)
mertangili: I think after 29 Re3+ black can postpone the inevitable mate for a couple of moves by 29...Kf4. So 29. Qxg6 seems faster as there is no way to aviod 30. Qf5# next move.
   Nov-18-16 M Hebden vs F Felecan, 1993 (replies)
mertangili: <clement41> I agree to your comments on the merits of 18. Bb5. And yet it seems it only leads to equality after 20..Bxe5 as Bf4 pin threat stops white from achieveing anything significant after 21.Bxc6+. So it seems with correct play the position is equal after all.
   May-25-16 G Orlov vs Glek, 1987 (replies)
mertangili: It is very instructive for me to work out variations to see why 17. Rf1 fails.
   Dec-24-13 Santa Claus (replies)
mertangili: Dear Santa, I feel I am lucky posting a last minute greeting.
   Dec-09-13 G Kuzmin vs An Airapetian, 1981 (replies)
mertangili: <millert>, <arrabbany> you're right there is no mate after 24...hxg6, 25. Qxg6+ Kf8. But after 27. Qg7+ Ke8 28.f7+ white is going to get some of its sacrificed material back and with the black king chased into the open, it would be very hard for black to stop checks. ...
   Jul-25-13 J C Moore vs M J Read, 1981 (replies)
mertangili: <Thean> After 45. gxf8=Q+ Nxf8, Can't white try 46.Kf2 stopping the pawns from queening, and maintain the material balance? I know black still has the advantage with the two connected passed pawns; but the game has to continue for a little while for black must figure out a ...
   Jul-23-13 Capablanca vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1913 (replies)
mertangili: Maybe this loss has also something to do with the location and date of the game? As it must have been played in a very cold and dark weather, Capablanca from Cuba might have been adversely effected.
   Jul-11-13 A G Preusse vs W Schelfhout, 1910 (replies)
mertangili: What's wrong with 16...Qxc4?
   Mar-06-13 Winawer vs Steinitz, 1896 (replies)
mertangili: <thomastonk> Yes, very simple indeed. I guess I suffered from chess blindness yesterday. Thanks.
   Feb-08-13 Rublevsky vs K Asrian, 2004 (replies)
mertangili: After 19.Rxf4 Qxf4 20.Rf1 g6; 21.Nf6+ Kd8 (only move) and 22. Qd1 with the treat of discovered check seems difficult to cope with for black. But I am not sure how white should proceed after 20...Qc7 as 21. Rxf5 g6 22. Nd6+ Qxd6 23.Bxd6 gxh5 and black appears to hold. Any ...
