   Oct-03-21 Showalter vs Pillsbury, 1897
 
rwbean: 25. ♔h1 draws and after 25. ♕g3 white is just lost Big black advantage after 17... ♕b5 20... f4!
 
   Sep-30-21 Showalter vs Pillsbury, 1897
 
rwbean: 10... h6 is too slow. Black is a move behind when he has the initiative from the pawn sac. Needs to be 10... o-o and 14... a5 ... Black seems paranoid about having a White bishop on g5. 23... ♗xd2 gives Black the advantage. 64. ♔d6 mate in 10.
 
   Sep-19-21 D Smerdon vs Carlsen, 2016
 
rwbean: There are two articles about David Smerdon and this game in "The Saturday Paper", an Australian newspaper, this month. 21. ♗xh7+ ♔h8 22. ♗c2+ ... 22 ... ♗h6 23. ♘d6 +4.07 (48 ply SF14) 22 ... ♔g8 23. ♘f3 +4.61 (52 ply SF14)
 
   Sep-15-21 Deep Thought vs Kasparov, 1989
 
rwbean: 37. ♖b2 is -0.64 (SF14, 57 ply) 37... ♘c4 is -4.01 (SF14, 40 ply) so it's like one move was enough to lose. Bad move! So far, I've looked at "Kasparov v Deeper Blue" (Daniel King, 1997 - p.27), "Kasparov vs Deep Blue" (Newborn, 1997) "Behind Deep Blue" (Hsu, 2002) ... ...
 
   Sep-13-21 Kasparov vs Deep Thought, 1989
 
rwbean: Stockfish 14 after about 2 hours can't see better than mate in 21 ... 37. ♕d7 ♖c2+ 38. ♔d3 ♖b2 39. a6 ♖b3+ 40. ♔c2 ♖f3 41. a7 ... pesky checks and mate on move 57. The computer annotation on this page doesn't give 9... ♘e5? a question ...
 
   Sep-12-21 Rapport vs Firouzja, 2021
 
rwbean: Black starts to go downhill after he doesn't play 15... c5
 
   Aug-27-21 NN vs Blackburne, 1884 (replies)
 
rwbean: 10. ♕d8 ♗h3 11. ♕xc7+ ♔f8 then... 12. gxh3 ♕xh3 13. d4 or 12. ♕xb7 ♗xg2 13. ♕xa8+ ♘e8 14. ♔xg2 ♕g4+ 15. ♔h1 or 12 ♕xb7 ♗xg2 13. ♔xg2 ♕g4+ 14. ♔h1 or 12. ♕xb7 ♕g4 13. ...
 
   Aug-23-21 Kasparov vs The World, 1999 (replies)
 
rwbean: I keep updating this - I noticed with Stockfish 14 and 6-piece TBs that 30... ♔c7 also draws. So Kasparov's book from the year 2000 really needs updating!
 
   Aug-17-21 V Mamoshin vs Gulko, 1972 (replies)
 
rwbean: 31. ♕c2 ♗xe3+ 32. ♔g2 ♕d4 33. ♕d1 ♗d3 34. ♗c2 ♗xc2 35. ♖b8+ ♔g7 36. ♕xd4+ winning. It was fun to watch though
 
   Aug-15-21 S Bartha vs G Kluger, 1979 (replies)
 
rwbean: Fascinating, I don't think it's been mentioned that 17. ♘d5 would be even but the move played loses immediately.
