   Sep-18-18 L Shamkovich vs A Anguiano, 1978 (replies)
 
BAJones: Only had a quick look at this, but it seems to me that the moves 13...Qb6 (inconsequential) and 14...Red8 (too slow, and loss of tempi, as the piece has already moved), are suspect. Black would have done better to immediately remove the White Knight with 14...Nxe5. Any views, ...
 
   Sep-17-18 Colle vs G A Thomas, 1926
 
BAJones: 12...Nxe4 should have been played.It was essential to eliminate the central White Knight at e4. Not doing so enables White to seize the initiative. Excellent attacking play by Colle.
 
   Sep-14-18 Botvinnik vs Capablanca, 1938 (replies)
 
BAJones: This is a great game, but what makes it great are not the sacrifices - impressive as they are - but the underlying strategic concepts. For half of the game, Black's Queen and Queen's Knight were effectively out of action. Capablanca's Queen's Knight moved five times in the first 18 ...
 
   Jul-11-18 Kupchik vs Capablanca, 1926 (replies)
 
BAJones: Will someone please tell me why 35.Rc2 does not work?
 
   Jul-09-18 Bogoljubov vs Tarrasch, 1922
 
BAJones: Comparison of this game to another very similar game played by Alexander Alekhine and Jose Raul Capablanca just the month before, at the London, 1922 tournament, is instructive.In that game, Capablanca was safely able to complete the moves ...c5, followed by ...cxd4. He was ...
 
   May-21-18 Capablanca vs Marshall, 1927 (replies)
 
BAJones: This game abounds in 'petit combinations', which were a hallmark of Capablanca's play, namely 25.Bxh6, 31.Nxd6, 50.d6, 53.h5! (after which, Black's remaining pawns are all lined-up on the 5th. rank, ready to be captured one after the other), and 60.Kc3. Marshall just manages to ...
 
   Oct-10-17 Rubinstein vs Maroczy, 1920
 
BAJones: A truly beautiful finish of the highest order. However, Rubinstein had previously used his diversionary Bishop sacrifice in a game with Mieses in 1905.In both games, Bh4 had compelled his opponent's resignation.
 
   Oct-10-17 Rubinstein vs J Mieses, 1905 (replies)
 
BAJones: The diversionary Bishop sacrifice of Bh4 also occurs in the game Rubinstein - Maroczy, Gothenburg 1920, in both cases as the final move. A beautifully subtle winning move.
