   Jan-20-06 Kamsky vs Anand, 2006 (replies)
 
GreatGrecosGhost: I think the losing move was 19...Nxe3? Anand's plan seems to be to enter into an opposite colored bishop endgame. He trades off queens, and a rook at the cost of a pawn which normally is not enough for white to secure a win in opposite colored bishop endgames. The problem ...
 
   Dec-31-05 Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858 (replies)
 
GreatGrecosGhost: I must admit this is also the first game I memorized, thinking that this game held the key to checkmating every opponent in less than 20 moves.
 
   Nov-16-05 Capablanca vs Marshall, 1913 (replies)
 
GreatGrecosGhost: Hey how about this line for white. 13. Ne5 Nxe5 14.Bxh7+! Kxh7 15. Qxh5+ Kg8 16.Rxe5 c6 17. Rae1 Bd6 18. Rae2 Looks like white can win a pawn If. 13...Bxd1 14.Nxd7 Rfd8 15. Ne5 Nxe5 16. Rxe5 Bd6 17. Rxd1 Bxe5 18. dxe5 White still ends up two bishops up for a rook.

GreatGrecosGhost: Sorry I was out of town for a few days. I figured out the problem. It was a typo, I meant 23.Ng5!! sorry for the confusion.

GreatGrecosGhost: h5 What the hell is Anand's plan?
 
   Sep-28-05 Judit Polgar vs Anand, 2005 (replies)
 
GreatGrecosGhost: 36. b2+ 37. Kc2 Qa2 38. Bxg7+ Rxg7! 39. Kxc3 Rb3 40. Kd2 b1Q+ 41. Ke3 Qxe2+ 42. Kf4 Qbxd3 43. Rxg7 Qdd2+ 44. Kg3 Qxf2+ 45. Kh3 Qh2# Forced mate found by Fritz, that Anand missed.
 
   Aug-09-05 Tal vs Y Rantanen, 1979 (replies)
 
GreatGrecosGhost: Black's best defense was probably 26...Qe6 27. Bxg7+ Kg8 28. Rxf6 Bxd1 29. Rxe6 Rxe6 30. Bf6 leaves white up a queen and a pawn for two rooks. White has the initative. If 28. Bxf6 Qxf7 29. Qxg4+ Qg6 Qxg6+ hxg6 31. Rxd6. The variation is almost entirely forced and leave ...
 
   Jun-27-05 Adams vs Hydra, 2005 (replies)
 
GreatGrecosGhost: <Marco65> I said a few months ago I liked Hydra's positional play for a computer before they upgraded it. Now it seems to play like Karpov. See my comments: Ponomariov vs Hydra, 2004
 
   Jun-26-05 Hydra vs Adams, 2005 (replies)
 
GreatGrecosGhost: Here is my analysis with a lot of help from Fritz 8. 1.e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O Be7 6. Re1 d6 7. c3 Bg4 8. d3 Nd7 9. Be3 Bxf3 10. Qxf3 Bg5 11. Bxc6!? The novelty. Gives black doubled pawns, but also gives him a half open b file. 11...bxc6 12. Nd2 O-O 13.
 
   Jun-26-05 Lavrinenko vs Tal, 1950 (replies)
 
GreatGrecosGhost: White sac'd the exchange to try to disrupt the pawn structure around the king as well as weaken the dark squares. With Rc1 he had hoped for 36...Qxe4 37. Rxc8, which stops black's c pawn dead in it's tracks. with 37...bxa2 38. Qxf6. Tal's Queen sac gain's the tempo and ...
