   Dec-02-21 Landa vs S Shipov, 1998 (replies)
syracrophy: I pulled up this funny sequence: 36...♗c5 37. ♕f4 ♕d1+ 38. ♔g2 ♕g1+ 39. ♔f3 ♕f2+ 40. ♔e4 ♕c2+ 41. ♔f3 ♕xb2 Picture of pain: [DIAGRAM] There is no good way holding the Queen against an exchange! 42. ♕g5 ...
   Nov-29-21 J Christiansen vs Navara, 2021
syracrophy: Christiansen tweeted he missed the winning 35.♕c7! due to the fear of leaving the bishop hanging but it was mate in d8! After 35.♕c7! ♗e7 36.♗b5 ♕d8 <only move to save the piece..> 37.♕b7! <..but leaves the ♕ hanging instead!>
   Nov-29-21 L'Ami vs Van Wely, 2010 (replies)
syracrophy: More than a quarter of the game was for escaping from the Rook checks!
   Nov-09-21 Alireza Firouzja (replies)
syracrophy: <Troller> The upcoming Candidates won’t be as strong as previous editions, so he may have a serious shot. Duda and him are the underdogs this time and Alireza could give a surprise. What I’m saying is that he still needs a big time of achieving results to be a serious ...
   Oct-29-21 A Predke vs N Yakubboev, 2021 (replies)
syracrophy: An amazing Queen sac right in the opening, which immediately goes linked to Karthikeyan?s 9?♕xc3+!? vs the young superstar Firouzja just two years ago: Firouzja vs M Karthikeyan, 2019
   Jul-14-21 Prague (1946)
syracrophy: What a tournament by Najdorf: the conqueror that left due WWII and came back to his continent to continue achieving successes. This must have been an emotionally hard event for Mr. Miguel: after losing all his previous life when staying in Argentina, then returning, playing again
   Jan-07-21 M Leconte vs A Skripchenko, 2001 (replies)
syracrophy: What a picture from the final position! Even though White's a piece up there's no way for giving the ♕, for the least, to continue: even after the desperate 28.♕xd6 ♕xd6 29.♖xc2 (29.♖xf3 ♖xb2) ♖xf1+ 30.♔xf1 ♕d1+ loses all; but
   Dec-31-20 Pachman vs M Ujtelky, 1959
syracrophy: Also, White's optimism after 32.♔h1?? (instead of accepting a draw with 32.♔xg2 ♕xe4+ due to perpetual) proved to be his downfall. It's a nice position of ♕♖♖ with both ♔'s at stake
   Dec-31-20 Andersson vs Stein, 1972
syracrophy: Andersson's 30.♖f2! was loyal to his defensiveness until the end: after 30...♕e7 31.♗g5 and there's no check when taking the <♖c5>
   Dec-03-20 Topalov vs Kramnik, 1997
syracrophy: A great finishing jolt! The theme is simple but so so neat.
