   Jan-09-13 Capablanca vs T Bray, 1919 (replies)
 
GrenfellHunt: Granted it's a simul, but Capa makes chess look very easy.
 
   Jun-09-12 Benko vs Fischer, 1958 (replies)
 
GrenfellHunt: 38. Rd7! is a lovely move. Put that one in a tactics book. :)
 
   May-31-12 Gelfand vs Karpov, 1994 (replies)
 
GrenfellHunt: Can anyone explain the classic Karpov-style 17...Nf8? Rybka likes 17...Qxa2 here (d/13).
 
   Apr-11-12 Colle vs Duchamp, 1929 (replies)
 
GrenfellHunt: 29 Nxf7! is just a lovely move. A small classic for your database of endgame tactics.
 
   Apr-05-12 Yaacov Norowitz (replies)
 
GrenfellHunt: Have taken lessons on ICC w/YaacovN. Great guy, great sense of humor, excellent ideas on how to play positional chess. Looking forward to him making GM. :)

GrenfellHunt: Summerscale's "Confessions" is wonderful. A classic chess short story.
 
   Aug-13-10 Xu Hanbing vs Y Zimmerman, 2001
 
GrenfellHunt: Maybe this one was agreed to a draw in advance?
 
   Mar-31-09 Flohr vs E Steiner, 1934
 
GrenfellHunt: Really superbly played endgame on both sides. Classic game.
 
   Mar-04-09 Fischer vs Benko, 1963 (replies)
 
GrenfellHunt: Gee, if Fischer wasn't a genius, then there are no geniuses in chess. His 20-0 streak against the leading GMs of his day is one of the most amazing parts of his claim to greatness, and no one has ever come close to matching that: neither Lasker nor Alekhine among the older ...
