   Mar-03-18 Larsen vs W Lauridsen, 1948
 
DanQuigley: 1.e4 e5 2.f4 This move initiates the King's Gambit. 2...exf4 Black accepts the gambit. 3.Nf3 This is the most popular move, no doubt because it follows Lasker's "Knights before Bishops" rule. However 3.Bc4 does every bit and even a little better for White in practical ...
 
   Dec-30-17 Staunton vs Horwitz, 1851
 
DanQuigley: “[Staunton] played the opening in a surprising modern manner, as can be seen from the following game.” Tony Kosten (1999) 5.d3 - I am not a fan of Staunton’s unusual fifth move. Nineteenth century players often made moves that had more to do with their pre-game conceived strategy
 
   Dec-08-17 Pillsbury vs Gunsberg, 1895
 
DanQuigley: The critical position is Black's 26th move. Gunsberg's defense had to be world class and he just wasn't up to the task. f5 by White can't be allowed. After Black taking twice on f5, White's Nb4 with double attack on a6 and d5 shows what's wrong with Black's position. Therefore, ...
 
   Nov-30-17 W Adams vs M Pavey, 1948
 
DanQuigley: 26...Nc7 and Black is actually equal!
 
   Sep-27-17 Tarjan vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
 
DanQuigley: Sometimes a fiction author writes a book that contains more meaning and is of greater depth than the author intended. It is often the reader/critic who comes along behind that shows appreciation and points out significances. I find Tarjan's hypermodern style of play breathtaking ...
 
   Jul-07-17 Roberto Rodriguez vs B Weiner, 2001
 
DanQuigley: I question this game as really being played by Roberto Rodriguez. USCF shows Roberto's last game as being played in 1997. In addition, Roberto was a lifelong 1.d4 player exclusively.
 
   Jun-24-17 Carlsen vs Topalov, 2017 (replies)
 
DanQuigley: There is a better way to play this opening than voluntarily retreating with 7...Nb6.
 
   Jun-02-17 Spassky vs Illescas Cordoba, 1990
 
DanQuigley: Black's batting .500 (W3-L3-D3) with 11...Ng6 rather than 11...Nc6.
 
   May-31-17 Bagirov vs Yusupov, 1979
 
DanQuigley: Bagirov,V (2545) - Jussupow,A (2490) [E42] URS-FL Frunze (11), 1979 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e3 c5 5.Nge2 cxd4 6.exd4 d5 7.c5 Ne4 8.Bd2 Nxd2 9.Qxd2 a5 10.a3 Bxc3 11.Nxc3 a4 12.Bd3 This was the first game to feature 12.Bd3. 13...b6 13.0-0 Ba6 Black has a number of other ...
 
   May-03-17 Psakhis vs S Semkov, 1982 (replies)
 
DanQuigley: 30.Nc2 Nb6 31.Ne3 Nc4 <The pressure on the isolated pawn grows. The knight likes it on c4.> 32.Bc1 Kf7 33.h3 Bd6 34.Rbb1 Nb6 35.Ra2 f5 36.g3 <Controls f4.> 36...Ke6 37.h4 Bf8 38.Re2 Kf7 39.Nc2 <39.Rb3 Bd6 is good for White.> 39...Nd5! <39...Rac4 40.Rb3 Na4 ...
