   Sep-18-18 L Shamkovich vs A Anguiano, 1978 (replies)
Mendrys: A computer's best move may be something like 17. Ne2 (+.20) as an example but 17. Bxh6! is the right "people" move to make. Finding a refutation that doesn't start with 15...gxh6 is difficult for almost any human and as best play by black leads to equality Bxh6! is certainly the
   Sep-15-18 Kasparov vs Anand, 1995 (replies)
Mendrys: <RookFile: As is well known, Morphy would not have a chance in today's day and age. He played the Evans Gambit. How romantic. Of course, such a weapon could never work today against today's modern GM's.> I almost fell for it and had a snappy comeback about Johnny Weissmuller. ...
   Sep-01-18 Averbakh vs Korchnoi, 1965 (replies)
Mendrys: Well then, it's not quite the same but I was able to get the following position as black this evening: [DIAGRAM] I had seen Rh1! coming for a few moves with this game sill fresh in my mind, my opponent obviously did not. It continued. 23...Rh1! 24. Bxh1 Qh7+ white resigns. Thanks ...
   Aug-09-18 V Laznicka vs Movsesian, 2007 (replies)
Mendrys: Thanks for the puzzle CG. There's a certain layer of mystery now. I can go with it.
   Jul-29-18 N Georgiadis vs Mamedyarov, 2018 (replies)
Mendrys: <Inocencio: The trading of Black's bad bishop against White's good bishop on Move#19 is the beginning of the end of White; from that moment, Black seized the initiative!> I'm not so sure. At move 30 Georgiadis looks fine. [DIAGRAM] The Knight on b5 looks strong and while his ...
   Jul-07-18 O Borik vs Miles, 1979 (replies)
Mendrys: A good GOTD. I enjoy games with material imbalances. Alas, poor Borick couldn't take advantage of his slight material advantage as he had hoped.
   Jul-06-18 Portisch vs Kasparov, 1981 (replies)
Mendrys: I'm surprised that I got it. Well, I'll give myself 9/10 of a point as I found the drawing line but figured that I must be missing the win somewhere and looked at the result.
   Jul-05-18 Svidler vs Gelfand, 2018
Mendrys: Interestingly 36...Kf7 was the correct move to keep the advantage. According to Stockfish White can draw by perpetual after 36...Qd7 37. Qg3+! though the line is complicated it takes advantage of whites weak back rank.
   Jul-04-18 Morphy vs T J Bryan, 1859 (replies)
Mendrys: <al wazir> you may want to check white's other replies to 16...Kd6?
   Jun-26-18 Gleizerov vs Krasenkow, 2016 (replies)
Mendrys: White had an interesting try to get out of the mate threat with 34. a3!? [DIAGRAM] the queen sac is still there for black but careless play would have lost for him. 34...Qxa3 35. bxa3 b2+ 36. Ka2 bxc1=N+!, an under-promotion wins the day. (36...b1=Q+? 37. RxQ cxb1=Q+ 38. Qxb1 Rxb1 ...
