   Jun-08-18 S Volkov vs D Anikonov, 2016 (replies)
SpamIAm: <ajk68>, I believe that the threefold repetition was white's to claim, not black's.
   May-27-18 Pachman vs Szabo, 1947 (replies)
SpamIAm: <Sourav>, the strategy employed here by Pachman also is a great example of knowing your opponent. Szabo was a very tactical player, even with black, and here he is goaded into some bad moves.
   May-25-18 Polugaevsky vs Korchnoi, 1977 (replies)
SpamIAm: Actually, Korchnoi blundered much earlier also, on his 21st move, hastily capturing a pawn with 21...Qxh2? This allowed the rook invasion 22.Re7! which gave Polugaevsky drawing chances. Essential was the interpolation 21...Qg1+ 22.Kd2 and only then 22...Qxh2. If now 23.Re7 then ...
   May-21-18 S Maroroa vs A Diamant, 2018 (replies)
SpamIAm: I always like games where white puts a piece back on its original square early on (6.Bf1). It's almost a "okay, the weather was nice outside but I'm coming back inside" kind of thing.
   May-18-18 A E Moussa vs A Nazarov, 2008 (replies)
SpamIAm: <Cheapo by the Dozen>, after 44...Qe5+ (instead of 44...Rh1+ as played in the game), 45.Qf4! saves everything, e.g. 45...Qxe6 46.Qxf8+. Or if 45...Qxf4+ 46.Nxf4 protects the bishop at e6.
   May-17-18 C Hoogendijk vs A A Marguerite, 2008 (replies)
SpamIAm: Agreed, <cocker>. There's some strange weak moves from both sides throughout the game.
   May-12-18 V Gashimov vs Gelfand, 2009 (replies)
SpamIAm: Interesting suggestion, <Despot1985>. The only way to avoid mate appears to be the queen sac 15...Qf8. After 16.Bxf8 hxg6 17.Qxg6+ Kxf8 white should still win, with Q+p (including passed g and h pawns) vs. 3 minor pieces, plus the fact that black still has not developed his ...
   May-05-18 P V Nandhidhaa vs P Karthikeyan, 2016 (replies)
SpamIAm: <Mayankk>, I would say that the advantage of 29.d6 is that it takes away an escape square (at e7) from the black king. The gain of tempo by attacking black's queen is an additional bonus.
   May-04-18 G Guseinov vs M Ezat, 2008 (replies)
SpamIAm: <stst>- After 25.Rxe7+ Kxe7? 26.Nd5+ forking king and queen is faster.
   Apr-24-18 M Bartel vs A Belezky, 2008 (replies)
SpamIAm: The 7...Qa4 variation of the Winawer French is rarely played, which probably means that it should be played more often, LOL. It's foremost practitioner was William Hook of the (British) Virgin Islands- I used to call him Captain Hook. I'm puzzled by Black's 9...Qxb3; that ...
