   Oct-17-17 Ulf Andersson vs Larsen, 1981
Mateo: Andersson missed a winning ending. 38.Qxe7+ Kxe7 39.Nxf6 Kxf6 40.Be4 is slowly winning. There is the tactical threat Bxc6 limiting the scope of the Black Bishop. The e5 pawn, Black's passed pawn, cannot move. White's majority will slowly advance. The same idea was 39.Qxf6+! Qxf6 ...
   Oct-14-17 Ulf Andersson vs Browne, 1980 (replies)
Mateo: There is no evidence that Andersson was demonstrating a series of finesses in this Bishop endgame. The pawn ending was beeeyoootiful. However, according to the silicon beast, both players missed something. 45...Bg4? loses (instead of the correct 45...Kf6 46.Kd3 Ke5 holding the ...
   Oct-12-17 Duras vs Rubinstein, 1907
Mateo: <Honza Cervenka> You are right. I quote Kmoch after 26.Rae1? <An error which leads to a rapid collapse. White's position was indeed anything to brag about, but after 20.d5 he could still put up fight.(...) Duras was always notoriously weak in games which require positional ...
   Oct-06-17 Reti vs Tartakower, 1925
Mateo: Highly interesting game. 30.Rc2? was a blunder. From there until the end, it looks like a beautiful study. 48...Rb5 is the culminating point. White cannot take the Rok of course, otherwise Black mates in two moves. 39.Qxa6+ seems hard to refute. Is really Black winning?
   Oct-05-17 Dus Chotimirsky vs Marshall, 1925
Mateo: A complete knock-out. 12...d4! sacrificing a pawn to open the lines in front of the White King was strong. 16...Re8! and 18...Nxf2! were nice little tactics.
   Oct-05-17 Carlos Torre vs Levenfish, 1925
Mateo: Interesting battle. Levenfish seems to be in control of the game until he played 28...Re4? losing the exchange after 29.Bd3.
   Oct-03-17 I Rabinovich vs Bogoljubov, 1925
Mateo: I don't think Black had a big edge after 15...Bxf2. It was rather drawish. But indeed 26...Be5! was a very nice move winning a pawn.
   Oct-03-17 Lasker vs P Romanovsky, 1925 (replies)
Mateo: <WorstPlayerEver: After 18. Qg4 Nc8 things are pretty much unclear. 18. Qb3 is better.> It is true that the really weirf 18...Kf7? can hadly be good, and that your move (or the move or you computer) was better. However, White would still have the upper hand. Look to the pawn ...
   Oct-03-17 Tartakower vs B Verlinsky, 1925
Mateo: 35.Nf5! was a nice move. White threatens 36.Rd8+ mate as well as 36.Ne7+. Black has no defence.
   Sep-29-17 Bogoljubov vs Rubinstein, 1925 (replies)
Mateo: <perfidious: I would bet the farm that the photo provided by <chancho> was excised from Soviet archives soon afterwards, or that the image was modified, same as the famous picture featuring Yezhov walking down a river bank alongside Stalin.> Interesting point. You should ...
