zluria: Totally insane queen sac! In your line, I see 16 Be4 Nxe4 18. Qxe4 Bd5 19. Qf5 Nd4 20. Qg4 (say) Ne2+ 21. Kh1 fxg2 winning the queen or mating.
   Jan-27-19 Giri vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
zluria: Hm, I blinked and the whole situation changed. Since White lost his Knight and both his b pawns, the most he can hope for now is some kind a fortess and a draw. I'm calling it: Congrats to MC on winning Wijk for the 7th time!

zluria: Congrats on a great result at Gibraltar!
   Jan-23-18 Anand vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
zluria: Anand and Carlsen played this exact position in the 2015 Norway chess tournament, a game that Anand won. Anand vs Carlsen, 2015 In this game, Carlsen chooses the rare move 15...Nb6 rather than the main move 15...c5. The point of this odd move is that it invites White to play 16.a5, ...
   Mar-05-17 D Paravyan vs Swiercz, 2017
zluria: Amazing game. I guess the Marshall isn't as drawish as everyone says! In the final position, 37.Qd5 is well met by Re4! And mate on g2 is imminent.
   Jan-25-17 So vs Wojtaszek, 2017 (replies)
zluria: I'm very surprised by 14....Nxb4. Doesn't axb4 win the a4 pawn?
   Jan-22-17 Karjakin vs So, 2017 (replies)
zluria: Looks like Karjakin picked up a few tricks from Carlsen.
   Jan-21-17 So vs Eljanov, 2017 (replies)
zluria: If I were White, I would play f4 here. I suspect that a top GM like So won't even consider the move.
   Jan-19-17 Eljanov vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
zluria: White has been preparing a Kingside attack with pawns on h4 and e5, but it isnt easy to make progress. For instance, the plan of 26.Bf1 followed by Bd3 runs into 26... Qd7!
   Jan-17-17 P Rout vs M Al Sayed, 2016 (replies)
zluria: This was a tricky one. The first move that caught my eye was 34.Qxg6 fxg6 35.Rxh7 with seemingly unstoppable mate on h8. However, the in between move 34. ...Qh2+ defends the h7 rook and wins for Black. Then I started to look at 34.Qh6+ deflecting the Black rook, so that after Rxh6 ...
