   May-30-14 King's Gambit Accepted, Cunningham (C35)
 
DWINS: I've always liked the Cunningham because it seems that White's loss of castling and the extra time it takes for white to activate his h1 rook should be a serious disadvantage. I guess that's not really an issue for the stronger players. In the December 1969 edition of "Boys Life", ...
 
   May-19-14 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1935 (replies)
 
DWINS: <Howard>, Purdy, in his book "Extreme Chess", points out that "Black could have made the win clearer by 25...Re8+". He's correct because of 26.Ne4 f5 or 26.Kd1 Bxd2
 
   Feb-23-14 Nunn vs B Lalic, 1996 (replies)
 
DWINS: <Cheapo by the Dozen>, White cannot play 28.Qh1 because he just moved a rook to h1 on the previous move.
 
   Feb-18-14 Bisguier vs Ivkov, 1961 (replies)
 
DWINS: <thomascrown>, Stockfish confirms that the position after 41.Nf5+ Kg6 42.Qd7 is a draw. Black plays 42...Qe1 threatening a mate in 2 by 43...Qf1+ 44.Kg4 h5 mate. White must play 43.Nxh6 Kxh6 44.Qxf7 and Stockfish evaluates the position as a draw. Incidentally, 42... Qb1 and ...
 
   Feb-15-14 Savon vs Bronstein, 1973 (replies)
 
DWINS: <Phony Benoni>, I let Stockfish take a whack at the position after <52...g4 53.Qc1> and it finds a mate in 14: 53...gxf3 54.Qc3+ Kd6 55.Qf6+ Kc7 56.Qe5+ Kb6 57.Qf6+ Ka5 58.Qc3+ b4 59.Qxc5+ Qxc5 60.gxf3 Qf2+ 61.Kh1 Qxf3+ 62.Kg1 Qxb3 63.e5 Qxb2 64.e6 f3 65.Kf1 Qe2+ 66.Kg1 ...
 
   Feb-06-14 K Havasi vs Stahlberg, 1934 (replies)
 
DWINS: <morfishine>, I cranked up Stockfish and it confirms that Black wins the race. Following your line, after 64...Kg3 65.Ke5, Black wins with 65...Kf2! 66.Ke6 g6 67.Kf6 Ke3 68.Ke5 Kf3 69.f5 gxf5 70.Kxf5 Ke3 71.Ke5 Kd3 72.Kd5 Kc3 73.Kc5 Kb3 74.Kb6 Kxa3 75.Kxa6 Kxb4 65...Kf2 is a ...
 
   Jan-17-14 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985
 
DWINS: Kasparov injected tension into what had been a game of quiet maneuvering with his provocative 18... Be6!?, and Karpov took up the challenge with 19.f5, which seized space with a gain of tempo. An attempt to to trap the black queen with 19.a5?! would not have worked after 19...Rac8, ...
 
   Dec-11-13 Nunn vs Romanishin, 1974
 
DWINS: This is an interesting game where John Nunn follows in the footsteps of David Bronstein by speculatively sacrificing his queen for two minor pieces. Unfortunately for him, he suffered the same fate as Bronstein as Romanishin went on to win the game. Spassky vs Bronstein, 1956 It was a
 
   Dec-07-13 D Dubov vs Shirov, 2013 (replies)
 
DWINS: <nnnnnnnn: There's a point also, after move 19, that black has all his ...8 pawns, while the material balance is completely established (R for 5 pawns!), yet black's position superior!> Actually, Stockfish 4 evaluates the position after move 19 as being favorable for white ...
 
   Dec-05-13 Karpov vs Ulf Andersson, 1973
 
DWINS: This is a fine demonstration of Karpov’s effective positional style. Andersson’s 7…c5, committing himself to parting with bishop for knight after 8.a3, is inferior to 7…d5, which maintains a strongpoint in the center against which the white knight would be less effectively placed at ...
