   May-14-15 Caruana vs L Dominguez, 2015 (replies)
 
Olavi: Another: A Ivanov vs Sherzer, 1992
 
   May-12-15 Spassky vs Karpov, 1978 (replies)
 
Olavi: A funny repetition. Why should the knight go back to a3? To stop b5, and b5 without Be7 is perhaps not possible. May be prearranged, of course.
 
   May-06-15 Averbakh vs Korchnoi, 1965 (replies)
 
Olavi: Another well known example of the tactic, but only worth a draw: Timman vs Kramnik, 1995
 
   May-01-15 Isaac Boleslavsky (replies)
 
Olavi: The 1957 book by Boleslavsky on his selected games feels good, but I don't read Russian.
 
   Apr-30-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
 
Olavi: <Can anyone without looking it up name the other candidates in the matches leading up to the 1972 final - who played who and what were the scores of their individual matches.> Yes, for all cycles 1965-1990. The earlier tournaments, perhaps not everybody's exact score (certainly ...
 
   Apr-30-15 Keres vs Panno, 1958
 
Olavi: After Pilnik-Smyslov had ended in a draw, the captains Kotov and Pilnik made an all draw pact for the other games. Panno was angry. The others: Tal vs R Sanguineti, 1958 E Eliskases vs Bronstein, 1958
 
   Apr-30-15 Kamsky vs Ivanchuk, 2008
 
Olavi: I love the quote posted by <achieve> in 2008. The players are there to accommodate & serve the technologue, not the other way round.
 
   Apr-29-15 Botvinnik - Flohr Match (1933) (replies)
 
Olavi: In the foreword to The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Tom Fürstenberg writes that apparently even a Bronstein needs an enemy, that his comments on Botvinnik should be seen against this, and that he (T.F.) intended to moderate them, but in the end decided otherwise. There's a lot more.
 
   Apr-22-15 Tal vs Bagirov, 1970 (replies)
 
Olavi: and it's -a for ladies.
 
   Apr-20-15 J H Donner vs Geller, 1969 (replies)
 
Olavi: 14.Qxd6 Ne5 looks good.
