   Aug-03-18 M Efroimski vs T Munkhchuluun, 2008 (replies)
 
SpamIAm: <NBZ>, <sjunto>, the posts are being 'recycled' because chessgames.com is on autopilot. The gentleman in charge, Daniel Freeman, passed away suddenly a little over a week ago. :(

SpamIAm: <Phony Benoni>, <zanzibar>, yadasampati>, and everybody else- the webmaster passed away about a week ago and the site is on a sort of autopilot. :'(
 
   Jun-26-18 Gleizerov vs Krasenkow, 2016 (replies)
 
SpamIAm: <thegoodanarchist>, IMO 35.Re8+ is a move that should always be played in such a position (rather than resigning immediately). Preferably quickly, with a flourish. There's always a chance black will instinctively reach for his own rook to capture white's. And if he touches ...
 
   Jun-22-18 Topalov vs W So, 2016 (replies)
 
SpamIAm: I love seeing a position where en passant or castling form an essential part of the continuation.
 
   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.
