   Jun-05-23 J Rudd vs J Le Roux, 2006
samvega: Black's spectacular and correct-looking 23..Re3 turns out to be neither sufficient nor necessary. 23..? Black to play could be a good puzzle; the engine gives some fascinating variations for the alternatives that do work. 27.? White to play would also make a good puzzle.
   Jan-02-23 Sherzer vs M Nemeth, 1990
samvega: Tragic loss for black after the beautiful 17..Nc3. Playing over this game, I was wondering if 25..Be4 was better than 25..Bd5 because it's both defensive and aggressive. From e4 the bishop can retreat to g6 to screen g7 from the white queen, defends against Nf5 tactics, pressures c2
   Dec-21-22 G Lettieri vs P Passerotti, 2003 (replies)
samvega: I thought white should have played 31.Bg4, but although this "works" it leads to a dead equality according to SF. White should apparently play 31.Kg2, but amusingly after black returns his queen to c6 the pawn is still poisoned. After 31.Kg2 Qc6 32.Rfd1 h4 white would finally be ...
   Dec-20-22 J F Cubas vs L Bruzon Batista, 2014
samvega: Looks as though white had intended 16.Bxe6, then changed his mind, though I don't understand why.
   Aug-06-22 B Daneshvar vs L Pantsulaia, 2021 (replies)
samvega: Weird. 6.Nb5 and 7.g4 hardly signal an intention to draw, but then white accepts a very early one in an excellent position. SF awards white a huge advantage after 13.e3, but it's amusing how many other moves in this position are playable: b4, Rc1, Rb1, a3, Bg2, Bxh6...
   May-23-22 Euwe vs G Welling, 1976
samvega: Ah, I somewhat fell into the trap of looking at the result and guessing Qxb7 was where white started to go wrong. Thank you for your more detailed analysis.
   Oct-31-21 A Kevitz vs Fine, 1932
samvega: The suggested 38..Re5 is a cool move, but white has the cushion shot Qd8+ followed by Qf6. But there's still a game to be played from that point, so I guess the annotator was half right.
   Sep-19-21 Kosteniuk vs I Krush, 2021 (replies)
samvega: That is indeed beautiful. Nice commentary video.
   Aug-05-21 Z Tan vs A Muzychuk, 2021
samvega: It's not indexed yet, so it can't be located via the similar games feature or the opening explorer, but there is a recent Shankland - Dubov game in the database. From googling, it looks like it really is a third move novelty! I see Daniel King posted a video about it on ...
   Jul-19-21 I Ivanisevic vs R Tleptsok, 2015
samvega: Oh, I see now from looking at more games that allowing black's LSB to capture a rook posted on d5 must be thematic to this variation.
