   Mar-28-16 L Day vs K Valkesalmi, 1986 (replies)
 
IMlday: 9.Re1 was actually 9.Qe1 played so later hangage to ..Bxf2 or ..Nd3 forks was not available.
 
   Jan-21-15 I Theodorovich vs L Day, 1962 (replies)
 
IMlday: I was so green that this was the first time I faced a master. But I learned a good lesson in how playing 0-0 & ..h5 can allow irresistible mating attacks. This insight produced lots of points, even against masters. Compare this game L Day vs E Vano, 1980
 
   Dec-22-12 L Day vs Kuprejanov, 1969 (replies)
 
IMlday: This was my most traumatic game ever. A win would give me the IM title. The opening is a bit psychological as his play-with-the-pieces classical style disdained pawn warfare, as in the correct ..b7-b5 plan. So he clowns around with ..Ra6-b6 and then with 21..Ra6 offers a draw. ...
 
   Oct-30-12 K Rogoff vs L Day, 1971 (replies)
 
IMlday: This is the last round of the World Students team championship and the U.S. needs 1.5/4 to guarantee the silver medal (The Soviets have gold locked) Bruce Amos and Peter Biyiasas defeat Bill Martz and Jim Tarjan. On top board Andy Soltis seems much better against Suttles. As Ken ...
 
   Oct-22-12 J Peters vs L Day, 1977
 
IMlday: If I'd known I'd only missed a draw instead of a win then I would only have been half as disappointed! :)
 
   Sep-24-12 R Morrison vs I Findlay, 1982 (replies)
 
IMlday: Ian became much stronger when he switched to QGDs from the 'junky' Modern Benoni. In this game 14.g4 was Karpovian, exploiting 11..Re8?! since the N has no convenient future. Maybe then ..Re8-f8!? clearing the way for ..Nf6-e8 made some sense.
 
   Jul-07-12 F J Lee vs Nimzowitsch, 1907 (replies)
 
IMlday: I also think My System is a dangerous book for learning chess. Consider Nimzo's assessment that Black is better out of the opening. Most modern GMs, and Houdini, disagree. Without his 'system' Houdini might have found the straightforward refutation of 17.Be3? by 18..Nxe3 19.fxe3 c5 ...
 
   Jun-07-12 Morozevich vs Nakamura, 2012 (replies)
 
IMlday: 40..Nxd6 41.Rxd6
 
   Jun-01-12 L Day vs M Woodhams, 1967 (replies)
 
IMlday: The opening was unsatisfactory for Black since the f5-wedge allows a slow but inexorable attack. White has more room for attacking pieces than Black has for defenders, so he gets out-numbered and reduced to progressively passive defence. A somewhat similar 'Chigorian-technique' ...

IMlday: <LTJ> Not lately. btw liked that A Riazantsev vs V Nevostrujev, 2002 you recommended. <Lysgaard> its ok with me, (and better than readers payin teh pirates ;)
