Jul-29-14 T Wedberg vs J Ljungdahl, 1974
al wazir: What was wrong with 23...Bxf5 ?
B47
Jul-29-14 Morphy vs T W Barnes, 1859
Ke2: Of course Morphy would have looked at 36. Rxd6, what he must have missed was after Qxg7+, the queen covers b7. The bishop covers b8 and b6, creating a wall on the b file. The King must go into either the deadly b5+ by moving forward, or a ...
C42
Jul-29-14 D Byrne vs Benko, 1966
jerseybob: I'm guessing time forfeit? D.Byrne was a good blitzer; if he'd had only a few seconds to play Qg5+ I'm sure he could've made the time control with an easy win.
A10
Jul-29-14 Kenneth Rogoff

C65
Jul-29-14 British Chess Championships (2014)
waustad: I've seen various ages for senior championships. Until recently it was 60 for men and 50 for women, but in the recent Senior Team championships, they had a 50 group and a 65 group.
 
Jul-29-14 Wei Yi
Ke2: I have great hopes for Wei Yi after seeing original ideas this game - Wei Yi vs Lin Chen, 2014 . Particularly 8. g4!
 
Jul-29-14 J Horton vs Y Zhou, 2014
hstevens129: <An Englishman> Any response to 54…Ba4 loses the pawn anyway: 55. Ba2 Bd1+ and the King must move, unless 56. Ne2 Bxe2 57. Kxe2 Bxf4, and the pawn is lost anyway. Any other bishop move at 55 and the a-pawn is queening. 55. Nc6 ...
B08
Jul-29-14 Kharlov vs Topalov, 2004
Ke2: An amazing situation where Topalov has a broad pawn storm for a whole rook, like Spassky-Fischer Game 13.
C24
Jul-29-14 J Van Kemenade vs A Alevizos, 2013
Ke2: 6. Ng5. (6. Nxe5 Qa5+)
C24
Jul-29-14 Garry Kasparov
perfidious: <pipi: <Kasparov recently wryly remarked that he does not expect to find a single euro remaining in the FIDE accounts when he takes office in August.> In other words, Short is a firm believer that Kasparov will be elected.>
 
Jul-29-14 Lefferts vs van Paridon, 1986
Ke2: 5. Qf3 is a shocking breakthrough novelty! Misplacing the Knight which is needed to defend the Kside!
C28
Jul-29-14 Morphy vs P Maude, 1859
Ke2: In this case he was winning on move 6. 6... e4 depends on the resource Nxc4 or Qb4+, which is too shaky, and the e-pawn is going nowhere and doing nothing.
C58
Jul-29-14 G Jones vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2014
engineerX: Actually I think Black played this quite brilliantly, not a surprise for such an endgame expert as him. If white had avoided 40.f4, how would he cope with the Black King's invasion Ke6-e5-f4-g3xg2 followed by marching th h-pawn?

Jul-29-14 Xiu Deshun vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2014
engineerX: If 20. Nc7 maybe Ne5 21. Nxa8 Nf3+ and 22... Qe4 and the black pieces (Q+N) get close to the white King. And if 21. Nxe8 (so that white keeps his N close to the black King), maybe Qxe8 and Black keeps d3 for the moment. If then 22. f4 ...
D10
Jul-29-14 Wei Yi vs Lin Chen, 2014
Ke2: This opening is great, 8. g4 is a novelty, but it is totally sound and natural. I highly doubt it was prepared, and is instead a sign of Yi's Morphy-style crystal initiative.
C28
Jul-29-14 Julio Catalino Sadorra
bubuli55: Julio, good luck! Enjoy!
 
Jul-29-14 Bu Xiangzhi vs A Moiseenko, 2014

Ke2: Funny, I'd seen the video, and randomly find this game when exploring Magnus vs. Trompowsky.
A45
Jul-29-14 Petrosian vs Taimanov, 1957
Ke2: Odd to blunder right after the time control. 41...fxe6. This is a beautiful finish, the king is just 1 square from the a-pawn.
E80
Jul-29-14 M Z Ali vs B Westin, 1987
ColeTrane: trap alert...wrestlin' ol' westin
B17
Jul-29-14 B Arvola vs R Freuler, 2010
Ke2: 3. c3 is quite original. The only other game in CG is Letelier vs Fischer, 1960 . This gambit (4.Nd2) is pretty interesting, unsound but great practically. My engine points out the excellent resource 22... Nc6.
A45
Jul-29-14 Letelier vs Fischer, 1960
Ke2: The real beauty of this game is the opening. Tremendously original from both sides.

Jul-29-14 Robert James Fischer
Petrosianic: That's true, but as Sneaky said, I'm sure Fischer convinced himself that he still had the title, despite resigning it. For Fischer's own sake, it would have been nice if he could have played just one more match before retiring with ...
 
Jul-29-14 V Ruban vs Judit Polgar, 1993
Ke2: White's opening seems kind of tepid. On move 15, he's simply getting pawn rollered on the the Kside without counterplay that I can see. Are there ideas I'm missing?
E60
Jul-29-14 Biographer Bistro
zanzibar: <Dubai 2014 Blitz WC> And for the record, out of the 24 "missing" <FIDE> blitz games, 16 are stubs. So, perhaps more code to add to my program to flag these cases.

Jul-28-14 O Bernstein vs Lasker, 1909
tamar: Fascinating position after 25...Rf8. 26 Qe3 and 26 Re3 both give White great pressure, but Lasker's suggestion of the slower 26 b3 might be best, exploiting Black's lack of constructive moves. <White thinks he can win the end game ...

Jul-28-14 Politiken Cup (2014)
Conrad93: <notyetagm: Politiken Cup (2014) Yes, he is just *killing* non-elite GMs at this event.> You don't consider Moiseenko, Jones, and Rodshtein as super GM's? Plus. Bu wasn't that far away from 2600+ before this tournament.
 
Jul-28-14 Bu Xiangzhi
Billy Vaughan: Bu Xiangzhi's recent results have given him 38 points, more than is almost ever seen at the ~2700 level in just one rating period.

Jul-28-14 M E Bida vs S Baciu, 2011
ScottElliott: Why not 11...Bxb5 12 Nxb5 a6 ? It looks like Black's queenside attack would be faster than White's kingside attack.
