Olavi: Yes, great page. My Dutch isn't perfect, but also Sosonko, writing in schaakbulletin 173, says that Henley scored a GM result (not title). Which isn't conclusive, of course.
 
   Jun-26-15 Zsuzsa Polgar
 
Olavi: In the bio, <Later that year, FIDE, in a controversial decision, granted 100 rating points to every female player except Zsuzsa.> is not correct. There were others, Cramling, Fischdick (I think) and a third one. They received 25-75 points, if memory serves me right. Besides, ...

Olavi: <keypusher: <Olavi> I found examples for Kramnik and Anand without much effort. I'm sure you could find more if you're interested.> Yes, I thought those two might be the only ones. I just didn't know where to look. Is there an online database of results that goes up to ...
 
   Jun-25-15 Norway Chess (2015) (replies)
 
Olavi: 3...a6 By Carlsen is a David Janowski move, also seen in the famous Alekhine vs Rubinstein, 1921
 
   Jun-20-15 Keres vs Taimanov, 1951
 
Olavi: In his Selected Games Keres writes that he couldn't calculate precisely enough the consequences of the queen sacrifice, although he saw a lot (but he doesn't state explicitly how much he saw over the board - it's often impossible to know yourself after the game), and considering the ...
 
   Jun-12-15 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
 
Olavi: Like in the memorable Karpov poison pawn Qi Jingxuan vs Karpov, 1983
 
   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.
