   Nov-23-18 Spielmann vs Reti, 1913 (replies)
Kangaroo: Another mighty pin Reti vs Spielmann, 1928
   Aug-20-17 Kasparov vs Navara, 2017 (replies)
Kangaroo: The idea demonstrated by Kasparov in the opening reminded me a similar one from the game < Bronstein vs Beliavsky, 1975 >. The difference in variations - and to my sorrow - the opposite result.
   Aug-14-17 Kasparov vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
Kangaroo: <<triangulation>: What happens if white plays 11 Nh4. Isn't the black queen trapped?> Consider 11 ... Nxd4!
   Jul-19-16 R W Schutt vs P Hickey, 1966 (replies)
Kangaroo: There is no <24 ... Kb8> due to the presence of the white bishop on f4! So this is 24. Ra1 #!
   Feb-26-16 E Can vs Svidler, 2015 (replies)
Kangaroo: <Ulhumbrus: <26 ef removes Black's bishop pair but contracts an isolated d pawn. An alternative is 26 f4.>> Regrettably for White, after <26. f4 h5> White will need to play either <27. Nxf6+> or the same <27. ef6> because of the loss of exchange due to
   Jan-02-16 Romanishin vs S Williams, 2015 (replies)
Kangaroo: It turns out that <6.c3> is much stronger than a more traditional <6. c4> (!) - White preserves a possibility to press on the weak pawn e6 via <7. Qd1-b3>. I also felt that <8. a4> should be met with <8 ... a5>, but this is a post mortem conclusion.
   Dec-16-15 W Fried vs Schlechter, 1897 (replies)
Kangaroo: Fried Bird?
   Sep-02-15 Bisguier vs Fischer, 1963 (replies)
Kangaroo: Light squares can be weak even when the LS bishop of a defending player is alive!
   Aug-31-15 P Trifunovic vs M Aaron, 1962
Kangaroo: Light Squared Symphony!
   Jul-22-15 H Schneider-Zinner vs R Kaufman, 2007 (replies)
Kangaroo: As I found that tempting <27... Nf4> fails, the next attempt with <27... Ne3> occurred to be a right guess.
