DrDave: Just being lazy, but could anyone please point me to a game where Wyvill used his famous Wyvill formation? There are none on my database...
 
   Dec-01-11 D Root vs Silman, 1990
 
DrDave: Compare Silman's own comments about this line: http://www.jeremysilman.com/book_re...
 
   Jul-03-10 Alekhine vs A Selezniev, 1922
 
DrDave: 21...Bb7 is the move that Black wants to play, of course, but Alekhin explains that it is prevented because of 22.Qd3 a6 23.Nxg6! hxg6 24.Rxe6! fxe6 25.Qxg6+ Kh8 and now 26.Qh6+ (26.Bc2 "and mates in a few moves" according to Alekhin but I don't see it: 26...Rf5! 27.Rd3 Qxf4! ...?) ...
 
   Feb-08-10 Tal vs Smyslov, 1959 (replies)
 
DrDave: "OK - let me rephrase - any English book references?" I've just edited the re-issue of Harry Golombek's booklet from 1960. "The spectators had their money's worth in excitement, at any rate, in the 22nd round. The focus for this was the Tal-Smyslov game in which Tal sacrificed a ...

   Apr-10-05 Miles vs Kasparov, 1986 (replies)
 
DrDave: Any advance on 28000? Miles' legendary wit never descended into hyperbole; I think the most eyes he credited Gazza with is 22.
 
   Apr-04-05 Gligoric vs Petrosian, 1954 (replies)
 
DrDave: "In the last round I managed to finish my game spectacularly against Petrosian and the audience was on its feet. I had never experienced such a public ovation. I had to turn my back to the audience to hide the feelings that could be read on my face. After that I continued to play ...
 
   Feb-20-05 Gligoric vs Averbakh, 1952 (replies)
 
DrDave: I have a source which says (1) The game was played in 1950 and (2) Black's 28th was ...Na4. Can anyone adjudicate?
 
   Oct-04-04 Kramnik vs Leko, 1996 (replies)
 
DrDave: No comments on this game? I guess everyone just examines the wins... or maybe no-one else dares say they don't understand this game? Extraordinary stuff, hard to believe White can't hold on to the Queen and win.
