   Oct-28-17 Korchnoi vs Suetin, 1952 (replies)
Albion 1959: Patzer 2: 8.Qe2 as Equalising? White is trying to gain equality as early as move eight? The move Qe2! is established theory that goes back as far the 1900's.
   Oct-23-17 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2017
Albion 1959: Up to move 12 this is the same as the 21st match game Korchnoi v Karpov 1978! Except instead of Korchnoi's Qb1 Carlsen played Qc1, which practically invites black to take a safe and easy draw after 16.Bxf6 Nc2+ etc. Nothing new here at all. This game does give Fischer's claim ...
   Sep-30-17 Kasparov vs Nikitin, 1981 (replies)
Albion 1959: A relentless wave of non-stop pressure, move after move of threats. A typical of Kasparov games !
   Sep-25-17 Beliavsky vs Larsen, 1981 (replies)
Albion 1959: I used to play the Caro Kann regularly back in the 80,s but had to give it up of because this line. The other systems I did okay with, but not this one. Larsen's idea of playing a5 and a4 was bad and it invited trouble and was probably lost after 16:Nf5, what a horrible mess ...
   Sep-21-17 L Day vs Timman, 1980
Albion 1959: From move 55 Timman must have calculated that he would win the pawn race, but overlooked the under promotion at move 71? It is difficult to credit Day for his ingenuity, since the sequence of moves is practically forced anyway! And it is manifestly obvious even to a novice that ...
   Sep-16-17 Korchnoi vs Kasparov, 1983 (replies)
Albion 1959: I recall at the time that move 63.d5 was the losing move and that Rd1 would have drawn. There was plenty of analysis to support this, but I wonder if this is correct today ? Now that there are powerful search engines that could probably play this ending with more precision, ...
   Sep-10-17 Tal vs N Kirov, 1974 (replies)
Albion 1959: Not often you see Tal beaten like this ! Tal given a taste of his own sacrificial medicine and it brought to an end his 93 game unbeaten run !
   Sep-10-17 Petrosian vs Tal, 1962 (replies)
Albion 1959: At the unlucky 13th attempt, Petrosian scores his first win against Tal! I am sure I read somewhere that black actually lost on time (in what was a lost position anyway), though I could be wrong and stand to be corrected ?
   Sep-06-17 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1986 (replies)
Albion 1959: In the context of the match, which was tied at 10 and half each after 21 games. This was in effect the deciding game that put Kasparov in the lead and ultimately won him the match! It always amazes me how Kasparov can find these attacks and the energy with which he plays them. ...
   Sep-02-17 Korchnoi vs Portisch, 1967 (replies)
Albion 1959: A rare foray for Korchnoi to begin with e4 on move 1. Maybe he was mindful about Portisch's opening preparation and wanted to catch him off guard ? In any event, this was more good endgame technique from Korchnoi !
