   Sep-03-11 J Mieses vs Janowski, 1900 (replies)
 
K9Empress: "I have not yet disclosed such things as which of my games I am most fond of, but if you ask me to pick one out off the top of my head, the one I played with Janowski at Paris 1900 comes to mind." --Mieses, quoted in de Greiff's 'Mil y Una Partidas'
 
   Aug-29-11 A Masters vs A McHarg, 2009 (replies)
 
K9Empress: Qg5. God I hate mondays.
 
   Aug-29-11 Spassky vs Bronstein, 1960 (replies)
 
K9Empress: Ah yes, the famous Spassky game from the classic Bond movie. It was a favorite of Fischer's too, I think he called it "one of the 10 greatest of all time". Here's another K's gambit game from the 60's you might enjoy, played and won in the style of Morphy A Filipowicz vs A ...

K9Empress: <HeMateMe>, <kingfu>, <diceman>, [DIAGRAM] the position is from a pretty little gem I unearthed here at cg com. It was in 0 game collections, and no kibitzing! I couldn't believe how white won A Filipowicz vs A Tarnowski, 1962
 
   Aug-27-11 A Filipowicz vs A Tarnowski, 1962 (replies)
 
K9Empress: A beautiful little gem. 24...Kc7 loses a piece to 25.e6! Nf6 26.e7
 
   Aug-27-11 Kasparov vs M Vukic, 1980
 
K9Empress: Interesting this story about Kasparov and Andrianov. I once saw K's story in a DVD devoted to his career but this story wasn't in it. <perfidious> The soviets had already found their "man in a million", Karpov, who was under soviet control. so when Kasparov entered the ...
 
   Aug-25-11 Fischer vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
 
K9Empress: Probably the most overrated draw of all time. Long forgotten it would be if had been played by Smith and joe.
 
   Aug-24-11 L A Sanchez vs Pachman, 1959 (replies)
 
K9Empress: <12.f5!> was Fischer's idea. "and now you attack him on the king-side and destroy him" he told Sanchez. white won the brilliancy prize for this game, a luxuruous gold watch.
 
   Aug-24-11 P Martin vs G Forintos, 1958
 
K9Empress: White is argentine-colombian Pedro Martin, who drew 3 games with Geller inthe 1954 USSR-Argentina match.
 
   Aug-23-11 Najdorf vs E R Lundin, 1948
 
K9Empress: <Elegant and decisive combination> --Stahlberg, in the tournament book. 30.Rdc2!! , 34.f4!(34...exf3 35.Qf3). After 36.g5 it was over. Najdorf's best game in this tournament.
