   Oct-25-14 Reti vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1922 (replies)
DWINS: <Cheapo by the Dozen>, I let Stockfish 5 take a whack at the position beginning with White's 27th move and although your move, 27.g4, does win, it is significantly weaker than the alternatives. Stockfish gives the best line as 27.g4 Rcc6 28.Qg5+ Kf8 29.Qh4 Qe7 30.Qh8+ Kf7 31.Re3
   Oct-18-14 Karpov vs Ulf Andersson, 1969
DWINS: <who> and <Brown>, chess programs have come a long way since 2005. I had Stockfish 5 look at the position after 51...Qxa4 which Fritz evaluated as even. Stockfish 5 evaluates it as totally winning for White after 51...Qxa4 52.Qf1 Kh7 53.Kh2 Nc2 54.Qd1 Rb2 55.Ne7 Re8 ...
   Oct-17-14 Karpov vs Ulf Andersson, 1973
DWINS: <lioric: @Adrian P I don't think Bb7-Ba6 and Qb3-a5-b5 is a characteristic plan at all. It is highly original and typical of Karpov's original play.> It's not "highly original" as I point out in my above post, since the top players in the world would have surely seen the ...
   Oct-17-14 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1977
DWINS: Spassky finally got a favorable position against the French Defense for the first time in the match, but messed it up (missing a mate), and then managed to win when Korchnoi overstepped the time limit. Korchnoi ripped off a center pawn with 14...Nxe5, relying on 15.gxf5 Nxd3 16.cxd3 ...
   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 ...
