   Sep-19-21 Kosteniuk vs I Krush, 2021 (replies)
samvega: That is indeed beautiful. Nice commentary video.
   Aug-05-21 Tan Zhongyi 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 Tim Kras vs O Shapiro, 1992
samvega: This strikes me as tactically inventive on both sides, whatever the mutual errors.
   Apr-22-21 V Akobian vs T Taylor, 2003
samvega: It's above skill level to judge whether the looming sac on g3 after 28..Nf5 is lethal or just scary-looking, or whether the preemptive, simplifying exchange sac 29.Rxe8+ gives adequate compensation. It does, however, seem like 28.Ne5 would have been a more straightforward way to ...
   Apr-21-21 J B Willow vs C Beckett, 2015 (replies)
samvega: Yes. I'm innumerate.
   Apr-17-21 V Ciocaltea vs I Bilek, 1973
samvega: 19. e6 immediately seems like the more obvious candidate, almost the reflex move, and the easier calculation. The computer confirms it yields the greater advantage.
