AlicesKnight: Nice example of the double-bishop sacrifice to blow up a castled position. Saw it OK. White's 'spite attack' is easily ignored. See Lasker vs J Bauer, 1889 and Alekhine vs J Drewitt, 1923 among others.
   Jul-11-18 J Cox vs D Guthrie, 2016 (replies)
AlicesKnight: A nice tactical point. 40.Rexe6 should create enough advantage. If ...Nxe6 then 41.Rb7+ either gains the R or allows the a-pawn to queen (after exchange of Rs). Otherwise a longer win with material and positional advantage.
   Jul-09-18 Hector vs A Gupta, 2016 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Rxf8 and mate next move. The more famous Vidmar vs Euwe, 1929 shows a similar pattern.
   Jul-08-18 Averkin vs Balashov, 1974 (replies)
AlicesKnight: <jinkinson> White doesn't win - check the result - a faulty combination with the problems starting earlier on - White from move 25 onwards is trying to avoid a piece loss.
   Jul-06-18 Portisch vs Kasparov, 1981 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Spent too long looking for a win, then found the draw (then looked at the result!). It's the ending pattern where a queen can draw against two queens.
   Jul-05-18 Guanchu Liu vs Li Chao, 2011 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Saw this (for me) quite quickly. The neatness includes the prevention of White's Rxh5 and further checks.
   Jun-26-18 Gleizerov vs Krasenkow, 2016 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Saw the game line fairly soon. Even Qxb3 does not help White as the Black a-pawn recaptures to maintain the threat.
   Jun-21-18 Y Chan vs E Galvez Dastin, 2008 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Not too many pieces on the board to choose from, so less of a problem to find after a little thought; 24.Bxc6 bxc6; 25.Rxc6+ breaks open the defences. The game was more clinical than my 26.Rxb6 threatening back-row mate and forcing Black to give Q for R.
   Jun-20-18 Topalov vs T Paehtz Sr, 2017 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found it after a little thought; not spectacular but good tactical astuteness, winning 2 pawns and a decisive positional plus.
   Jun-18-18 V Laznicka vs Movsesian, 2007 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Nice one this morning; 32.Qh8+ forces ...Bxh8 whereon 33.Rxh8 mates. The N is protected, unusually, through the K, to maintain its guarding of g7.
