   Jun-23-17 Karpov vs Spassky, 1979
Mateo: <Retireborn: Spassky probably expected 41.dxe7 Rxd3 and had missed 41.b3! when he played 38...b5 - it's bad but not the worst blunder I've seen a GM make.> There are GMs and GMs. The difference of strengh between GMs can be very big. Spassky, as a former World Champion, was not ...
   Jun-23-17 Kavalek vs Huebner, 1979 (replies)
Mateo: One of the most intersting games played in this tournament. 12...c5?! was a dubious experiment. 15.Rxe6!! was brilliant. Later, instead of the obvious 21.Nxh8?, he should have played 21.Rhe1! with an overwhelming attack.
   Jun-16-17 Portisch vs Huebner, 1979
Mateo: Portisch was known as a very deep opening expert. Here his novelty (10.Fe3) leads almost to a win as the computer move 15...Qe6 was very difficult to find on the board. Even the ending is instructive. 35.Rb6+! and 38.h4+! were nice.
   Jun-14-17 Karjakin vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
Mateo: 19...Ng5!? instead of 19...Qxd3 is a real challenge.
   Jun-14-17 H Melkumyan vs D Khismatullin, 2017
Mateo: Sound game from Melkumyan. 24.Qb5! was the turning point. 24...Qxb5 25.axb5 cxd4 seems at first glance to win a pawn for Black, but, if you go further, it's White who is winning a pawn! 24...Qc7 was better although White has an edge.
   Jun-14-17 I Cheparinov vs S Azarov, 2017
Mateo: 19.c6! was a nice way to win a pawn.
   Jun-13-17 A Minasian vs Y Kuzubov, 2017
Mateo: <fispok> Yes. 31.Qb1 was better. 42.Kh1?? was the last mistake. 42...Qc6! wins after 43.Nd5 Qe6! and mate.
   Jun-03-17 Portisch vs Hort, 1979
Mateo: 39...Ra2?? was an awful blunder. Surely zeitnot.
   May-20-17 Alekhine vs E Eliskases, 1934
Mateo: <nionios> I donn't think so. Alekhine pressed for a draw after the awful 32.Ra4? losing a pawn.
   Apr-28-17 Rubinstein vs B Kostic, 1920
Mateo: 15...Rfd8!? was interesting. Black loses a pawn but the White Bishop cannot go back after ...f5. The real mistake was 21...Kf8? (21...Kf6 was much better). Maybe Kostic missed the nice 24.Bg8! (24...Rxg8? 25.Qxf7+ Kd6 26.Qc7 mate).
