   Sep-07-16 Mamedyarov vs Harikrishna, 2016
shepi13: After 29. f4 d4 30. Rxb7 Qxb7 31. Qxc5, e5 is no longer hanging but after 31...Qe4 black has significant activity and I believe black has a clear advantage.
   Jul-17-16 B Chatalbashev vs D Howell, 2015 (replies)
shepi13: I can't see the white king surviving after 28...Nxe2 29. Kxe2 Qxf3+ 30. Kd2 in those Be2 lines but I don't see a clear win. Also, d5 is hanging, black can consider 28... exd5 29. cxd5 Bxd5 but I'm still not sure where the crushing blow is in that line either. Probably I would play ...
   Mar-05-14 J Corzo vs Capablanca, 1901 (replies)
shepi13: No one has mentioned that 14. b4! Bxb4 15. Be3! fxe3 16. Qxh8 Bf8! 17. Qe5 Bd6! still gives black an enormous initiative for the exchange, and he is probably still winning, but I will agree that this was white's best chance.
   Oct-26-13 Anand vs Kasparov, 1991 (replies)
shepi13: <DrMAL> - you actually have it completely wrong. A book on the sveshnikov by Kasparov the position after 0-0 Qb6 Be3 Qxb2 Ncb5 axb5 Nxb5 Ra5 as interesting for analysis. Meanwhile, Anand says in his book of his best games that he found everything after 8. 0-0 over the board. ...
   Mar-05-13 Steinitz vs Chigorin, 1892
shepi13: Maybe after 32...Re2 33. Rg3 Qxg3 34. Qxe2 Rxe2!? 35. hxg3 Rxa2 black can claim a slight edge, although it should still be an easy draw.
   Mar-05-13 Steinitz vs Chigorin, 1892 (replies)
shepi13: SimonWebbsTiger - the plan to delay castling is too elaborate, without the rook on e1 black can counter in the center with d5 and equalize. Thus, modern grandmasters have learned to prevent counterplay, and to seize the chance for it rather than move their knights 5-6 times like ...
   Oct-22-12 Short vs Kamsky, 1994 (replies)
shepi13: This is the game where rustam kamsky tried to punch short, right?
   Jul-22-12 Rubinstein vs S von Freymann, 1909 (replies)
shepi13: <Kenkaku>, black doesn't play QGA classical, but instead transposes to it. QGA classical is 5...c5. The fact that white didn't play 6. a4 gives black time to play 6... b5 and go into a better variation for black than the one with 6...c5 7. a4 (which is named after Rubinstein I
   Jul-10-12 Shulman vs M Marin, 2009
shepi13: I've heard of a similar coincidence. I don't know what game it was in, but some GM told me they were watching a game in a grunfeld, and on move 44 they agreed to a draw. They thought they had some new cool novelty sometime around move 20, but when they asked some other GM's they ...
   Jun-01-12 Petrosian vs Botvinnik, 1963 (replies)
shepi13: < Why not 46.Rg2 isn't that two pawns up for White?> Exactly what whiteshark said. Not only is the immobility of the Ra4 compensation for the pawn, white cannot make any progress. The rook blocks the a pawn, so that isn't a threat, while the kingside pawns are easily stopped ...
