   Sep-15-17 NN vs R Crepeaux, 1923 (replies)
 
SpamIAm: <nalinw>, even that doesn't stop mate. 11...Ng4 12.Rf2 Qh2+ 13.Kf1 Ng3+ 14.Ke1 Qg1(h1)+ 15.Rf1 Qf1# Congrats, <al wazir>. 11...Qh2+ is flashy but deserves a "!?" instead of a straight "!". Your move leads to quicker mate. :)

SpamIAm: <Strelets>- I recommend the book "The Art of the Checkmate" by Renaud and Kahn.

SpamIAm: Fist bump to <morfishine>.
 
   Aug-06-17 Larsen vs Unzicker, 1966 (replies)
 
SpamIAm: In 1966 Larsen was perhaps the second strongest player outside of the Soviet bloc (guess who was first). At the Second Piatigorsky Cup he beat World Champion Petrosian twice. Yet here he loses to Unzicker, a good GM but usually not considered to be on a par with him. As Larsen ...
 
   Jul-15-17 R Haldane vs I Snape, 2007 (replies)
 
SpamIAm: <offramp>, I briefly considered that also in the hope that an en passant capture would be the winning move, which is rare. Unfortunately, this would've required that Black's last move was 24...g7-g5, which would've meant that Mr. Snape had turned down the opportunity to win ...
 
   Jul-14-17 K Spraggett vs P Llaneza-Vega, 2007 (replies)
 
SpamIAm: <ChessHigherCat>, unfortunately if 18...Kg4 19. h4 then black plays 19...Kg3. After 19...Kg4 white plays instead 20. Bf3+ Kg5 21. h4#
 
   Jun-19-17 Van der Wiel vs J van Baarle, 1983 (replies)
 
SpamIAm: Arnhem/Amsterdam, eh? A Philidor Too Far.
 
   Jun-09-17 Chandler vs A J Mestel, 1981 (replies)
 
SpamIAm: <bcokugras> Perhaps he(Chandler)was short of time and wanted to gain a move. Loved Mestel's sense of humor for playing 56...e1(B). I would've played 56...e1(N)for a spite check or two.
 
   Apr-21-17 E Inarkiev vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
 
SpamIAm: In the Keres Variation (11...Nd7), 12...cd is more common than than Svidler's 12...ed and this game shows why. Black gets rolled on the kingside.
 
   Mar-25-17 P Carlsson vs I Papaioannou, 2007 (replies)
 
SpamIAm: <Walter Glattke>, methinks that black simply had had enough. There's no mate but after 42.Rg1 Rh8 White simply plays 43.Bc5 followed by 44.Qa7+, simplfying to an easily won rook endgame 3 pawns up. That was the real purpose of 42.Rg1- unpinning the bishop.
