   May-21-10 Bird vs Chigorin, 1889 (replies)
 
Dravus: A brilliant pawn sacrifice at the end to forcibly remove the king's guard of the queen in a diagonally-constricted position.
 
   May-21-10 Chigorin vs Bird, 1882
 
Dravus: Killing two birds with one stone.
 
   May-21-10 J Mason vs Chigorin, 1902
 
Dravus: At the end, Black's connected rooks stand like draperies with a rat crawling down, the b-pawn, defeating the Masonic.
 
   May-21-10 J Mason vs Chigorin, 1900
 
Dravus: Chigorin beguilingly lets his bishop get trapped at 13, then let's off some tactical steam. Foretelling a variation of Alekhine's gun, he uses his rooks and queen to advantage.
 
   May-20-10 Chigorin vs Schiffers, 1880 (replies)
 
Dravus: Horowitz's treasury book has the game ending around White's 25th move by resignation (with the reader to figure out the variations).
 
   May-19-10 Konstantinopolsky vs Lilienthal, 1948
 
Dravus: Good tactics by Konstantinopolsky as white against Lilienthal to finish it.
 
   May-13-10 Bird vs Lasker, 1892 (replies)
 
Dravus: It's a Bird, Bird, Bird, Bird World.
 
   May-11-10 Spassky vs Geller, 1968 (replies)
 
Dravus: Boar is Spassky, iff'n I'm Geller.
 
   May-10-10 Geller vs Spassky, 1967 (replies)
 
Dravus: Two knights, the knight.
 
   May-10-10 Geller vs Spassky, 1974 (replies)
 
Dravus: If I'm Geller, porous Spassky.
