   Dec-07-22 Carlsen vs K Shevchenko, 2022
tonsillolith: Awesome endgame play. As a point of contrast between the two knights, White's knight exerted a tremendous amount of influence from its initial outpost at <f5> and its final, central outpost at <d5>. However Black's knight is trapped in a sorry state at the the edge ...
   Nov-30-22 Karpov vs Ivkov, 1980
tonsillolith: Karpov really Carlsenned Ivkov in this ending here. The possibility of a decisive result looked dubious to me until just right before the end. Much to learn here. Very impressive.
   Nov-24-22 Meltwater Champions Chess Tour Finals (2022) (replies)
tonsillolith: Carlsen killed it in this tournament. The games against Giri and Mamedyarov were a lot more one-sided than I would have expected. Congratulations to Le Quang Liem for not losing too badly to Carlsen in their match, and congrats to So for not coming in quite as far behind ...
   Nov-17-22 Karpov vs Kavalek, 1979
tonsillolith: <Of note is the interesting journey of white's dark-squared bishop.> I was thinking the same thing! Shades of his famous Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985 , and the trajectory of his light-squared bishop. Darker shades, that is. <28. Bxb5> the endgame arrived swiftly, and ...
   Nov-10-22 Kramnik vs A Zude, 1995 (replies)
tonsillolith: <A. Zude, don't be afraid...>
   Nov-03-22 Carlsen vs Duda, 2022
tonsillolith: From <38. d5> to <45. Rd6> is an impressive sequence of tactics for converting the e-pawn, beginning with the sacrifice of the bishop. One nice variation is <45...something with the knight> <46. e6! Rxe7 47. Rd8+> and the two pawns allow a back rank ...
   Nov-01-22 Firouzja vs Mamedyarov, 2022
tonsillolith: <30. Nh3!> nice defensive move, preventing the loss of the exchange.
   Nov-01-22 Gelfand vs Nakamura, 2010
tonsillolith: <2 PawnSac: I'm revisiting this game today as I just watched a Nakamura stream and he mentioned this game, and..> I'm here from his interview on the Lex Fridman podcast, where he also discusses this game.
   Oct-27-22 Rapport vs Carlsen, 2022
tonsillolith: <25...Bxd4!> a wise positional decision, but not obvious. Give up the bishop pair by trading one's bestlooking bishop for one of the opponent's knights rich can just be replaced by another? Well apparently any recapture makes a concession. Taking with the knight allows ...
   Oct-26-22 A Khasin vs Tal, 1956
tonsillolith: <33...Qxf7!> is a nice move, with a pleasing conclusion <36...Re1>. The knight on <d3> is killer.
