   Sep-12-23 R Praggnanandhaa vs Harikrishna, 2023
DaltriDiluvi: Black's final move <61...Ke6!> is a nice touch - there is no good defense against the threat <62...f5#>. I'm not even sure if Black is winning anymore if he plays the simple <61...Kxg6?>.
   Sep-12-23 Radjabov vs R Praggnanandhaa, 2023
DaltriDiluvi: In the final position, the white king is in a mating net. One possible continuation is <63.Bh7 Bd5+ 64.Kg3 Rg1+ 65.Kh2 Rg2+ 66.Kh1 Rxf2+> and the white rook drops.
   Sep-11-23 Grischuk vs V S Gujrathi, 2023
DaltriDiluvi: The opening was not much of a success for Grischuk. Here's the position at move 17 with White to move: [DIAGRAM] My engine says that the game move <17.dxc5!> is White's best option and that he gets sufficient compensation for the knight to keep the game in balance, but if
   Sep-10-23 J Holoubek vs B Vollbehr, 2023
DaltriDiluvi: I don't understand why this game ended in a draw, at least according to the current game score. The final position (after <64.Re8>) is winning for White.
   Sep-10-23 S Sargsyan vs V Karthik, 2023
DaltriDiluvi: Maybe White could have played on in the final position? After all, he's up a pawn.
   Sep-09-23 N Sarin vs Svidler, 2023
DaltriDiluvi: Svidler's move <36...Kg5?> was a serious mistake which gave Sarin great winning chances. (For example, in the line <37.h4+! Kxh4 38.Qg6!>, Black must give up his rook or get mated in a few moves.) In the end, however, Svidler got a draw by setting up a nice ...
   Sep-09-23 M Ermitsch vs K Solomon, 2023 (replies)
DaltriDiluvi: This game was decided by the blunder <58...Rh7??>.
   Sep-07-23 J Hollstein vs S Pheng, 2023
DaltriDiluvi: In the final position, White could have gone for a ♖+♗ vs. ♖ endgame with <71.Ke3 Rxf5>. It's a tablebase draw, but White usually has practical chances. Instead, the players apparently agreed to an immediate draw. Maybe Mr. Hollstein had had enough chess
   Sep-06-23 S Miesen vs C Strahl, 2023 (replies)
DaltriDiluvi: This game taught me that stalemate traps do exist in the ♕ vs. ♖ endgame.
   Sep-06-23 J A Alonso vs L Mader, 2023
DaltriDiluvi: Here's the position at move 61 with White to move: [DIAGRAM] I wonder how useful this rule of thumb is: "When you're fighting two connected passed pawns with a rook, aim for the pawn which has advanced the furthest". There are probably exceptions to this rule, but it's true for
