   Jan-01-17 Kamsky vs I Sokolov, 2017 (replies)
DLev: How about 26 ... Bc2 as an improvement? If 27 Qf3 then 27 ... Rf5.
   Oct-25-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
DLev: Was Euwe considered even possibly the best in the world when he was champ?
   Sep-23-16 Alekhine vs A Cruz, 1941 (replies)
DLev: A Murder of Cruz.
   Jul-09-16 Korchnoi vs Beliavsky, 1994
DLev: 22 ... Re3 wins back a pawn. White cannot defend the B with Qc1 or Qa1 because 23 ... Rf3+ follows. The rook is immune and black's attack crashes through.
   Jul-06-16 Quinteros vs A Sokolov, 1985

   May-04-16 Shirov vs S Sevian, 2016 (replies)
DLev: First move by black if white did not resign would be mate. At time of this writing result is shown as draw.
   Apr-02-16 Boris Spassky (replies)
DLev: Spassky's 1970 unbeaten streak pales in comparison to Tal's 1973-74 unbeaten streak of 95 consecutive games.
   Mar-18-16 Caruana vs Naiditsch, 2014 (replies)
DLev: I am getting the same phenomenon as psmith. I am viewing on an I phone.
   Mar-03-16 Karpov vs Timman, 1988 (replies)
DLev: Howard, you are correct about the cover. It was May, 1998. The question, submitted by Charles Hertan, was similar to pikket's July 11 2008 post and gives a diagram after 39. f4 in Karpov's note and a couple lines showing that black draws, with one line reminiscent of Reti's famous ...
