   Aug-30-17 Hertneck vs J Gallagher, 1997 (replies)
Dr. Funkenstein: Yeah, I missed the game continuation of 30. Bd5+ which leads to mate and instead went with 30. Ne7+ which results in being up a queen for a rook after 30. ...Qxe7+ which is forced to avoid 31. Rxf8#.
   Nov-26-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
Dr. Funkenstein: Adjournment is a welcome relic of the past, but I don't know why matches are only 12 games, but with clowns like Agon and Ilyumizhov running things, this is about the best we're going to get
   May-31-16 B Hammar vs E Jonsson, 2014 (replies)
Dr. Funkenstein: Is this a spoiler puzzle then? I saw the same line as everyone but thought it was a draw because black can't make progress because the rook on c4 isn't doing a whole lot. Then looking in the comments above it's shown as a won position for white!
   Mar-03-15 G Sargissian vs R Kempinski, 2015
Dr. Funkenstein: great position visually after white's 31st move and a nice tactic to finish the sequence
   Dec-05-14 D Kononenko vs M Lukyanov, 2004 (replies)
Dr. Funkenstein: Diagonalley: yes, as black threatens Rxc2, Qc4, and various h rook checks... Therefore the first few moves are forced... I missed Qd6+ leading to mate because I didn't see the bishop sac, instead I went with Gofer's line as I couldn't see any black defense after Qxh4... ...
   Jun-17-14 Kotov vs M Yudovich Sr., 1939 (replies)
Dr. Funkenstein: Interesting game, decided by black's useless queen, bishop and a8 rook.. I wondered why black didn't play 12. gxf6 until I saw the reply 13. Rc1 skewering queen and bishop It's a neat final position with the knight and pawn taking care of the only two squares black doesn't
   Mar-18-14 World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
Dr. Funkenstein: Andreikin is the same as any 2700 player (top 50 or so in the world). He happened to catch fire in the knockout (playing great chess round after round in that one tournament) and so qualified, but this tournament is a good demonstration in the difference in quality between ...
   Nov-28-13 A W Whitbread vs Keene, 1962 (replies)
Dr. Funkenstein: This transposes to the Grand Prix attack in the Sicilian after Black's 5th move, so isn't really a Bird's opening I don't think
   Nov-07-13 Berliner vs R H Steinmeyer, 1963 (replies)
Dr. Funkenstein: I went with 20. c5 like Patzer2, with the idea of 21. c6 if black grabs the hanging knight or tries to bring the rook or bishop into play or 20. c5 bxc5 21. Bxa5+ Ke8 22. Nf5
   Nov-06-13 Duras vs Vidmar, 1907 (replies)
Dr. Funkenstein: isn't 26. Qc3 a better defense than inviting the pin with Qg3? 25. Rxe5 26. Qc3 Bb8 27. Kg1 Re2 threatening Qe4 but it not easy to see how to proceed after 28. Re1
