Insane Games [GotD & PotD]
Compiled by FairyPromotion
--*--

A collection of games that have been featured both as <Game of the Day> and <Puzzle of the Day> on a Sunday (Difficulty: Insane). The drawing combinations (on the assumption that the master was outplayed earlier in the game, and had to find a deep combination to save half a point) are discarded, and so are the games where the winning move was not actually played by the master. They are:

Draws:
Browne vs Fischer, 1970, Salov vs Korchnoi, 1997, Kramnik vs Kasparov, 2000

Misses:
Nunn vs Csom, 1977

The list reached 101 games (collection limit) on Dec-04-16. I won't update this list in the near future. Thanks to all who stopped by. Enjoy!
