   Aug-06-22 B Daneshvar vs L Pantsulaia, 2021 (replies)
samvega: Weird. 6.Nb5 and 7.g4 hardly signal an intention to draw, but then white accepts a very early one in an excellent position. SF awards white a huge advantage after 13.e3, but it's amusing how many other moves in this position are playable: b4, Rc1, Rb1, a3, Bg2, Bxh6...
   May-23-22 Euwe vs G Welling, 1976
samvega: Ah, I somewhat fell into the trap of looking at the result and guessing Qxb7 was where white started to go wrong. Thank you for your more detailed analysis.
   Oct-31-21 A Kevitz vs Fine, 1932
samvega: The suggested 38..Re5 is a cool move, but white has the cushion shot Qd8+ followed by Qf6. But there's still a game to be played from that point, so I guess the annotator was half right.
   Sep-19-21 Kosteniuk vs I Krush, 2021 (replies)
samvega: That is indeed beautiful. Nice commentary video.
   Aug-05-21 Z Tan vs A Muzychuk, 2021
samvega: It's not indexed yet, so it can't be located via the similar games feature or the opening explorer, but there is a recent Shankland - Dubov game in the database. From googling, it looks like it really is a third move novelty! I see Daniel King posted a video about it on ...
   Jul-19-21 I Ivanisevic vs R Tleptsok, 2015
samvega: Oh, I see now from looking at more games that allowing black's LSB to capture a rook posted on d5 must be thematic to this variation.
   Jul-18-21 N Zhukova vs E Kovalevskaya, 2000
samvega: Interesting combination at move 16, white to play: [DIAGRAM] White forestalls Bh6, threatens to weaken Black's kingside by taking on g7, and if piece is accepted, wins it back a pawn the better in all variations (as far as I can tell, playing around with the engine).
   Jul-05-21 Lagno vs D Howell, 2002 (replies)
samvega: Somebody else must have gone for the silly 41. Nxf5 Nxf5 42. Rxf5 Qxf5 (which does work), because when I checked the engine the result popped up instantly, which means (I think) that the analysis had been run before.
   May-16-21 S Wellington vs Blackburne, 1862
samvega: 14. cd right away seems to make way more sense.
   Apr-23-21 T Kras vs O Shapiro, 1992
samvega: This strikes me as tactically inventive on both sides, whatever the mutual errors.
