   Sep-27-22 P K Wells vs S Ernst, 2005
scutigera: Whenever you see an oddly disadvantageous decision on move 39, or for earlier eras any move ending in 9 or sometimes 4, consider time trouble. Series of mutual mistakes leading up to time breakpoints also show up, and resignations on move 41 are common too, after overnight ...
   Sep-21-22 V Buturin vs I Vainerman, 1986
scutigera: Totally won for White, but the clock made it all in Gotta be a pun in there somewhere...
   Sep-08-22 Sinquefield Cup (2022) (replies)
scutigera: Possibly the classiest grandmaster meltdown was Nimzovich's resigning to Sämisch by standing up and shouting "Why must I lose to this IDIOT?!" Saemisch vs Nimzowitsch, 1925
   Aug-07-22 E Hintikka vs T Pirttimaki, 1988 (replies)
scutigera: Both players' names *and* something about the actual game, if only the result. "Massacre" to "masala" is a really big stretch, but it's worth it here. Well done!

   Apr-07-22 Minh Hoang Le vs D Saduakassova, 2017
scutigera: Nice display of sangfroid by the Kazakh prodigy here.
   Apr-04-22 E Ubiennykh vs O Girya, 2012 (replies)
scutigera: A very good day indeed: White overcame a 138-point Elo gap to win this. Nice going!
   Apr-02-22 M Weiss vs A Schwarz, 1882 (replies)
scutigera: Suggested game title: "Black is Better"
