   Nov-26-08 A Kosten vs J Rudd, 2007 (replies)
Dougy: He should have read Kosten's book "The Dynamic English." He describes the position after 8...Nc6 as "catastrophic for Black."
   Mar-01-08 O Vasiliev vs E Schiller, 2003 (replies)
Dougy: Oh? How odd...?
   Nov-29-06 Konstantin Chernyshov vs F Manca, 2005 (replies)
Dougy: How silly! Can anyone explain the reason behind these seemingly nonsensical moves?
   Nov-22-06 L Christiansen vs V Kovacevic, 1990
Dougy: An interesting idea is 29. Bd3, preventing the queen trap. E.g. 29... b6 30. Nf5+ Kf8 31. Qxe7+, or 29... Bd6 30. Nf5+ But this is refuted by the line: 29. Bd3 Bxg3! 30. Bxc4 Bxh2+ 30. Kxh2 dxc4
   Jan-02-06 Adams vs Topalov, 1998 (replies)
Dougy: I regret plugging this game into the computer without going through it myself first. See if you can find these. 37. White to move and win. 39. White to move and win. 41... Black to move and win.
   Apr-19-05 Navara vs Korchnoi, 2003 (replies)
Dougy: Hmmm Fritz thinks 22...Ng4 is winning.
   Aug-04-04 A de Leon Justo vs R Camejo Almeida, 2001 (replies)
Dougy: Hmmm... after 71. Ndxf6+ the tablebases say mate in 39. However from the final position - it's mate in 62. 71...Kg6 72.Kd3 Kf5 73.Nh5 Kg4 74.Nhg3 Kf3 75.Kd2 Kf4 76.Ke2 Kg4 77.Ke3 Kh3 78.Nf5 Kg4 79.Ne7 Kh3 80.Kf3 Kh4 81.Nd5 Kh5 82.Kg3 Kh6 83.Kh4 Kg7 84.Kg5 Kf7 85.Kf5 Kf8 86.Kf6 Ke8 ...
   May-01-04 Tkachiev vs Morozevich, 2000 (replies)
Dougy: Classic Rook + Pawn endgame. 61. Re3! prevents the black king from attacking the pawn. The black rook alone cannot stop the pawn from promoting (without sacrificing itself). Nalimov Tablebase says mate in 27 at the end of this game.
   Jan-25-04 O Bernstein vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
Dougy: Hmmm black has a mountain of back rank mates combined with a double attack. If 30. Qe1 Qxc3 then if 31. Qxc3 Rd1+ 32. Qe1 Rxe1# If 30. Qc2 Qa1+ 31. Qc1 Rd1+ 32. Qxd1 Qxd1# If 30. Qd3 Qa1+ with mate soon to follow. If 30. Rd3 Qc1+ (not 30... Qxe2?? Rxd8#) 31. Rd1 Rxd1+ 32 Qxd1 Qxd1#
   Jan-15-04 J C Knudsen vs J Wright, 1980
Dougy: Hahaha symmetry... 4. Qh5+ would of given black a lot of grief. Fritz 7 says... Best - 4. Qh5+ Ke7 5. Qg5+ Nf6 6. Nf3 2nd Best - 4. Qh5+ g6 5. fxg6 Qe7+ 6. Ne2 Kd8 While 10. ... Bxf4 would of won black a bishop for two pawns. 10. ... Bxf4 11. Bxd5+ Qxd5 12. Rxf4
