   Mar-08-17 Lutikov vs Tal, 1965
ICCM Bart Gibbons: 21 Qf4 also seems very strong, attacking f7 and b7. If 24...0-0-0 25 Bb7+ Kb7 26 Ne4 wins at least a pawn.
   Mar-01-17 Kosteniuk vs A Muzychuk, 2017 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: White was a pawn ahead and should have at least drawn this game. 50 Qb4 looks more solid than g3 as played. White should try to exchange queens and/or rooks, and advance the a pawn.
   Dec-30-16 Csom vs Reshevsky, 1971 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: After White's 35th move, it appears Black could safely play Qxc3. If 36 a4 then Qc1+ 37 Kh2 Nd4 leaves Black a solid pawn ahead.
   Dec-21-16 R Crepeaux vs Yates, 1926 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: This game was very sharp, beginning with White's 19th move, which deserves an exclamation mark. White had a gift for tactics; in a losing position he swindled famed artist Marcel Duchamp out of a chance to win the 1925 French championship.
   Dec-06-16 B Goldenov vs Korchnoi, 1964
ICCM Bart Gibbons: A nice try, but after 23 Rxf6, Black can capture the knight instead of the rook with 23..Qxe7. White's two bishops vs. the queen is insufficient compensation.
   Nov-27-16 Reshevsky vs H Steiner, 1945
ICCM Bart Gibbons: Black's queen sortie on the 8th move did not yield anything. White's 8th move was the second time he moved that bishop; that suggests Black should have a way to exploit that slight loss of time. 8...Nh5 or Bd6 come to mind.
   Oct-29-16 Portisch vs Karpov, 1996
ICCM Bart Gibbons: 13 0-0 would have left White with a comfortable game. Instead, his 13 dc5 Rc5 14 Qg7 brought about a sharp position where he soon got outplayed.
   Oct-25-16 Kupchik vs Harold Morton, 1938
ICCM Bart Gibbons: White's 15th wastes time. 15 e3, or 15 Nd4 look more solid.
   Jul-16-16 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: A question for ajile: After 16 Bc1 g5 17 Bg5 Qg5 18 Bh3 h5, you say Black has a very slight advantage. How would you continue if White then plays 18 f4? White can follow with 19 g5.
   Mar-17-16 Spielmann vs Nimzowitsch, 1911 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: This game is well-annotated by several grandmasters. The consensus is that White could have equalized with 19 c5, instead of Qa4.
