   Jul-28-16 Maroczy vs J van den Bosch, 1930
 
Olavi: I wonder what this was: http://www.chessmetrics.com/cm/CM2/...
 
   Jul-23-16 Ulf Andersson vs F Kuijpers, 1971 (replies)
 
Olavi: Not a typical Ulf Andersson game.
 
   Jul-12-16 Fischer vs I Aloni, 1962 (replies)
 
Olavi: The USA team in that match was Fischer, Evans, Byrne, Byrne.
 
   Jul-12-16 M Sammul vs Benko, 1962
 
Olavi: This cannot be Pal Benko.
 
   Jul-09-16 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1971 (replies)
 
Olavi: Why not 14...b6 and Rc7 next? It's a standard way to activate the rook. Often Bb7-a8 is played, and the rook controls the seventh rank, among others lessening the danger of knight sacrifices on f7. Perhaps 18...Kh8 is the real mistake (Nd5). The manoeuvre is particularly popular in ...

   May-27-16 Karpov vs Timman, 1988 (replies)
 
Olavi: Is this winning after 52.Kxf2?
 
   May-26-16 Spassky vs Panno, 1976 (replies)
 
Olavi: <Petrosian and Spassky probably would have had to play a playoff match if Petrosian had not qualified on his own.> That's what it says on the Manila Interzonal page, with a reference to Golombek in The Times. But when it comes to his writings, I'd always like to see a second ...
