   Jan-30-04 O Troianescu vs Petrosian, 1953 (replies)
 
Almanzor2: I have to say, even at this young age Petrosian shows the greatness of his concept, combining the sacrifice of the exchange for a pawn and a minority attack on the Queenside. His positional mastery and excellent sense of timimng are already evident. It would be another 10 years ...

Almanzor2: <zorro> Another player who had tremendous success against the Winawer was Smyslov, in his match with Botvinnik for the World Championship. Sorry, I don't remember the year. But it was quite an achievement, because Botvinnik was one of the main exponents of this line of play.
 
   Jan-29-04 Judit Polgar vs Macieja, 2002 (replies)
 
Almanzor2: <patzer2> Yes, I think after 21.Bf6 White is better.
 
   Jan-25-04 Robert E Byrne vs Spassky, 1974 (replies)
 
Almanzor2: Yes. Another player who has a good collection of Queen sacrifices is Nezhmetdinov. He always loved to sacrifice his Queen! Check out these two games: Polugaevsky vs Nezhmetdinov, 1958 0-1; Nezhmetdinov vs O Chernikov, 1962 1-0 I am sure Tal has some as well.
 
   Jan-23-04 Petrosian vs Bronstein, 1956 (replies)
 
Almanzor2: I believe Bronstein relates the anecdote to this game in one of his books. I remember reading how he repeated position and Petrosian was just going along, and then when Bronstein changed the pattern and attacked the White Queen, Petrosian did not notice. Didn't he also leave a ...
 
   Jan-23-04 Geller vs Spassky, 1964 (replies)
 
Almanzor2: No, I think it is a mistake...But isn't Spassky's last move glorious? It reminds me of moves that Anderssen ued to make!
 
   Jan-22-04 A G Grant vs D Russell, 1994 (replies)
 
Almanzor2: Still, my question remains unanswered. How does White win, if he does, after 17.Bf5,ef5 18.Rd6,Rh6?
 
   Jan-20-04 Leko vs Bologan, 2004 (replies)
 
Almanzor2: <Honza Cervenka> Yes, you are right. 19...Bf3 would win the pawn back after either 20.gf3 or 20.Qf3.Thanks!
 
   Jan-19-04 Shirov vs T Thorhallsson, 1992 (replies)
 
Almanzor2: <d4Nf6Bg5> Black must have been in time pressure, trying to solve all the tactical nuances of the position. Therefore he did not see the checkmate. But even after 37... Qg5+ 38.Qg5, Rg5 39.d7+ Black loses pretty quickly.
 
   Jan-19-04 Z Radojevic vs Bagirov, 1973 (replies)
 
Almanzor2: Because White is a pawn down, and in a move or two he will both be two pawns down, and will lose the right to castle. Third of all, all these things are happening, and on the other side of the board you have Bagirov!
