   Jul-26-13 Korchnoi vs A Matanovic, 1968
 
GlassCow: Very cool 2 bishops vs 2 knights endgame here.
 
   Mar-17-13 Karpov vs Timman, 1979 (replies)
 
GlassCow: Neat position after black's 24th. Timman's position looks like utter chaos and Karpov's looks tidy and orderly. Especially like the aesthetics of the knights and bishops in the position.
 
   Feb-04-10 Adams vs S Halkias, 2010 (replies)
 
GlassCow: if 12 .. Qxe5, Ba3 looks particularly difficult for black to answer notmtwain.
 
   May-25-09 D B Gurevich vs Seirawan, 2000 (replies)
 
GlassCow: Amazing effort from both of these titans. It must have been a heck of a lot of fun being a part of this game.
 
   Feb-07-09 Pillsbury vs Showalter, 1896 (replies)
 
GlassCow: 18. Nxd7? seems horrible to me, exchanging dominant knight for sickly bishop. Showalter's position was already so bad that it didn't much matter, however.
 
   Jan-18-09 Spassky vs Geller, 1959 (replies)
 
GlassCow: Fascinating, complicated and brilliant play by both heavyweights. This is getting added to my favorite games for certain.
 
   Jan-03-09 Steinitz vs Winawer, 1882 (replies)
 
GlassCow: 17 Qd4 was a clunker. either Nf5 or Nxc8 preserved the initiative and kept winawer in defense mode.
 
   Jul-15-08 Shirov vs Granda Zuniga, 1997 (replies)
 
GlassCow: Couldn't Julian have put it on ice by trading the exchange ..67 Rxe3 and ..68 gxf3 leaving him with the outside passed pawn?
 
   Apr-05-08 Ivanchuk vs Adams, 1999 (replies)
 
GlassCow: ... Bb3 looks pretty devestating in any case, time trouble or not.
 
   Mar-08-08 Joel Benjamin vs Alburt, 1984 (replies)
 
GlassCow: It is true that black is up material mistreaver, but after Ng5+, Kf6 is forced (Kg8 results in Bc4+ or Qc4+ with mate in 1, Kg6 results in Qe8+ with big problems for black) N1h3 threatens a devastating check Bc3+, and I don't see how Alburt is going to untangle himself out of this ...
