   Jan-22-17 Taimanov vs V Mikenas, 1965 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: I saw the need for 20.Bxh6 and the R check but was (like those above) then expecting Nxf7 looking to Qxe6. Taimanov handles it precisely.
 
   Jan-21-17 A Backlund vs J van Foreest, 2016 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: Got the continuation wrong after correct start. Nicely done here.
 
   Jan-20-17 Akobian vs R Barcenilla, 2015 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: Saw 26.Rd8+ as the basis but could not find a conclusive follow-up after ....Bf8, looking for something more immediate.
 
   Jan-18-17 Taimanov vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: Re; the 'fixing' debate; Matulovic was quite capable of being smothered in inertia by stronger players - cf. for example Matulovic vs Fischer, 1968 - Fischer similarly renders him somnulent by gaining space and pawns.
 
   Jan-18-17 Hebden vs R Cantero, 1986 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: I saw the points <YouRang> outlined - enough for a "won game". As mentioned a few days ago, 'not busted'.
 
   Jan-17-17 M Mrva vs J Dudas, 2001 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: The Bishops have gone on an ecclesiastical retreat or has St. Martin founded his first monastery?
 
   Jan-17-17 P Rout vs M Al Sayed, 2016 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: 34. Rxf7+ breaks open the position. The King cannot take and ...Kg8 allows Qxg6+ with mate in the corner, so 34....Rxf7; 35.Qh6+ Kg8 (...Rg7 does not help), 36.Qg7# thanks to the pin. Routed.
 
   Jan-16-17 McShane vs Judit Polgar, 2012 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: Black's axtivity on both sides leaves some doubt about where the main push may come after White's Q-side moves are blunted. The White N is redeployed right across the board only to find that it has fled the main Black charge after all, and is finally to be lost.
 
   Jan-16-17 L Machado vs K McDonald, 2016 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: The Black K is too closely guarded by the Rs - trapped in his castle! 24.Qf6+ forces ....gxf6, after which 25.Rf7 is mate
 
   Jan-14-17 A Maric vs Chiburdanidze, 1993 (replies)
 
AlicesKnight: <goodevans: Interesting how some folk assume chess players to be male.> Correct - - should have read "....This position is already compromised...."
