Joshua01: My brain must be slowing down; what is the response to 17. Qxf2?
 
   Sep-03-07 C W Kennaugh vs K G Shirazi, 2003 (replies)
 
Joshua01: Does 41. Rxb6 make it into a legitimate race? 1) 41. ... Rxf4, 42. Rxb7+ & 43. Rxa7 2) 41. ... axb6, 42. Kxc4 & a race to queen.

Joshua01: 17...Qxh1 must be the losing move. Black is up a piece, and I don't see any definitive themes if the Q's are traded off. 17...Qd5 allows either a trade off or for the black pieces to untangle themselves. ...or am I missing something here?
 
   Nov-20-06 P Strauss vs P Funk, 2000 (replies)
 
Joshua01: 28. Rxg6 seems better than Nxd6. Does it hold? 28 ... Rxc4, 29 Rxc4 Qxc4, 30. Rxd6 looks ok to me. Is there enough counterplay on 28 ... fxg6, 29 Qxg6? Perhaps a perpetual?
 
   Nov-11-06 Keres vs Szabo, 1955 (replies)
 
Joshua01: Boy, Keres is just simply brutal. Systematically brutal. And blunt. Amazing how naked Black's kingside is after Rxd7. Jeeze, you gotta wonder what kind of world champ he would have made.

Joshua01: Although the central pawns are unstoppable, did 34. .... Kg8 35. Nxe5 Re8 hold the piece? Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know: pointless.
 
   Jul-08-06 R Lallemand vs M Lomineishvili, 2005 (replies)
 
Joshua01: My analysis was similiar to <Wilson>. <Ziggy2016> are you sure that "there is no forced mate after 27...Kf8 28.Qf6 Ba4 29.Nxe6+ Ke8"? I don't have a board in front of me, so my blindfolded analysis may be off, but here goes: 30.Ng7+ leads to either 30...Kf8 ...
 
   May-01-06 Tartakower vs A Gromer, 1933 (replies)
 
Joshua01: I think that the losing move was probably 31...Nd4. Black had lots of space for most of his pieces, but trading all active pieces was virtually unavoidable after 31...Nd4. The bad bishop really stands out, even at that point. A very instructive game.
 
   May-01-06 Unzicker vs Keres, 1956 (replies)
 
Joshua01: Even in his rare losses, I've always found his games very instructive. For those who have not read it yet, his "Think like a Grandmaster" should be required reading for all chess players. One of those rare "theory" books with immediate benefits! Haven't really read anything for ...

Joshua01: I thought that 11. ... Bxf3 might refute the Bxg6, Qb5+ & Qxc5 line, but after 12. Bxf7+ Kxf7, 13. Qxf3+, I would think that it is probably still . Oh well. Quite a game. Gotta love the finish!
