   Jun-14-19 Karlsbad (1907) (replies)
Helios727: Was this Karlsbad the one in Germany or the one in the Czech Republic?
   Jun-14-19 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927 (replies)
Helios727: In Golombek's Capa book he claims that 7.cxd5 Nxd5 8.Qb3 Bb4 9.Rc1 e5, gives White no more than equality. However, if White follows with 10.dxe5 how does Black get the pawn back?

Helios727: Okay, here is my opening question. In the King's Indian Defense, Black moves his f6-knight on move 9 or 10 to d7, or e8, or h5. What are the factors that determine which of these is the correct square?
   Jun-05-19 Spassky vs Foguelman, 1960
Helios727: According to Andrew Soltis' book "The Best Chess Games of Boris Spassky", Black played 24... bxc2 (not bxa2), and White captured the c2 pawn with his Queen on move 31. The full moves being 24... bxc2 25.Nxg6+ fxg6 26.Rd8+ Kg7 27.Rg8+ Kxg8 28.Qxg6+ Rg7 29.Rd8+ Qf8 30.Rxf8 Kxf8 ...
   May-22-19 Walton vs Alburt, 1986
Helios727: I believe this is the game where an "A" player defeated Lev Alburt.
   May-05-19 Yasser Seirawan
Helios727: Too bad Bobby chose to belittle him on the radio shows that came later.
   May-05-19 Korchnoi vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
Helios727: In the KID I noticed that somewhere around move 9 or 10 Black moves his f6-knight to either e8 or d7. What are the factors that determine which of these is the proper square?
   Apr-26-19 Aranov vs Karpov, 1962
Helios727: It looks like Karpov could have won without under-promoting by playing 60... c4, with the threat of Bb4+, skewering the knight. If 61. Nxg2, then cxb3 and White's other pawn will soon fall as well. But of course it is a much cooler win the way he did it.
   Apr-18-19 Karpov vs H Motyka, 2000
Helios727: Is there a reason Black did not protect the h-pawn with 47... Bf8 ?
   Apr-18-19 Karpov vs S Vlaxos, 2001
Helios727: Is there a downside to White playing d5 as soon as possible in the closed Lopez? Such as on move 11 ?
