ConstantImprovement: I think the critical variation is 22. Qf6:+ Rg7 (22. ... Rf6: is easy; 22. ... Bf6: 23. Rh7:+ Kh7: 24. Rh4+ Bh6 25. Rh6:#) 23. Rh7:+ (23. Qg5 f5:) 23. ... Kh7: (23. ... Kg8 24. Rg7:+ Kh8 [24. ... Bg7: 25. Qg7:#] 25. Rh4#) 24. Rh4+ Kg8 25. Nh6+ Kh7 (Kh8) 26. ...

ConstantImprovement: 22. Nd5 d5: A. 23. Bd4 threatening 24. Nh6 #. Only three moves prevent that. I. 23. ... Bf6 24. Nh6+ 1. 24. ... Kh8 25. f6: and winning because of the threat 26. f7#. Only defense: 25. ... Rf7 26. Nf7:+ Kg8 27. Nh6 Kf8 and White is a rook up. 2. 24. ... Kg7 25. f6:+ ...

ConstantImprovement: There some ideas with Nb5 or Bd5:, but all is not forcing enough and is also often running into Bf4:. But after 19. Bc7: Qc7: 20. Re8+ we arrive at a crossroads. I. 20. ... Be8: 21. Re8+ Kh7 1. 22. Bd3+ g6 (22. ... f5 is a very interesting alternative, giving the ...
 
   Jun-11-11 Polugaevsky vs Ftacnik, 1982 (replies)
 
ConstantImprovement: Well, well. I have overlooked that 28. ... Rd1? allows 29. Qf7+ with a perpetual. I cannot say if I had seen 28. ... Qg2:+ 29. Kg2: Rd2++ 30. Kg3 Rg2+ 31. Kf4 Rf8+ 32. Qf5 Rf5:#. But giving the clear impression that this was the right way, the chance is there. Once you ...
 
   Nov-05-10 A Filippov vs Ngoc Truongson Nguyen, 2010 (replies)
 
ConstantImprovement: First try was I. 31. ... Nd2+ 1. 32. Kg2 Qf1# 2. 32. Bd2: a. 32. ... e5?? 33. Be1: b. 32. ... Qe2+ 33. Kg2 Qf1+ 33. Kf3 Be2+ (33. ... e5 34. Qe3 should win) 34. Ke3 e5 must have a refutation: The problem is that 35. de: runs into Bc5# and 35. fe: into Bg5# ...
 
   Mar-27-08 Shumov vs Kolisch, 1862 (replies)
 
ConstantImprovement: 22. ... Rg2:+ should be the solution. I. 23. Kh1 Qh2# II. 23. Kg2: Qe2+ II.1. 24. Kh3 Rg8 25. Rd8+ Rd8: (25. ... Kd8:? 26. Qd1+ Qd1: 27. Rd1+ Ke7 28. Nc4 Nd7 and perhaps because of the black extra pawn) 26. Rg1
 
   Feb-29-08 A Colovic vs W Arencibia Rodriguez, 2004 (replies)
 
ConstantImprovement: To UdayanOwen: It seems you were the only one here who recognized that after 31. Bd6+ Nd6: 32. d6:+ Rd6: 33. Qc5+ Rc6 34. Qa7+ Kd6 35. Qb8+ Rc7 there was the fine move 36. Qb6+ with # soon. Congratulations! I did not dig deep enough in the main line, because I simply ...
 
   Feb-28-08 E Vladimirov vs V Vorotnikov, 1974 (replies)
 
ConstantImprovement: To UdayanOwen: It was quite remarkable reading such an open and honest description of one's motivation and about the cause for one's anger. Don't let some silly comments distract you. It is possible that especially the one comment which started your anger had the same ...
 
   Feb-27-08 Tal vs Botvinnik, 1961 (replies)
 
ConstantImprovement: After examining it for some time, I guess it should be 29. Nd7+, but let's look at some alternatives: I. 29. Rca2 (threat g6 and Ra8#) Kc7 30. b6+ Kb6: 31. Rb2+ Kc7 32. Rb7:+ Kd6 33. Nf7:+ Bf7: 34. Rf7: Rc6: 35. Rh7: Rh4, and Black should be slightly better because of ...

ConstantImprovement: It is Black to draw, something else does not make sense. Seems very complex at first sight, because Black has many possibilities and motifs to fight for the draw: 1. Bringing the King to the f-file 2. Attacking d4 with the rook (by way of b1-d1 or b7-e7-e4) 3. Making ...
