   Jul-13-18 S Boden vs Belaiev, 1867 (replies)
Strelets: Soil Well?
   Jul-12-18 M Yilmaz vs C Lupulescu, 2011 (replies)
Strelets: How to lose in a Queen's Gambit Declined in twenty moves. Step I: let Yılmaz trap your king in the center.
   Jul-11-18 J Cox vs D Guthrie, 2016 (replies)
Strelets: Cox brings home the full point with an unexpected sacrifice of the exchange. 40.Rexe6! (the b-rook has other plans) Nxe6 41.Rb7+ and Black is forced to resign due to either the promotion of the a-pawn or loss of the rook on a7. It's easy to get the impression that endgames are all ...
   Jul-05-18 I Nepomniachtchi vs Gelfand, 2018
Strelets: Model game for White in the Rossolimo Sicilian.
   Jul-02-18 N Arora vs B Samhouri, 2008 (replies)
Strelets: Rook sac Monday? 32...Re1+ forces checkmate on the next move.
   Jun-06-18 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1955 (replies)
Strelets: <Howard> Korchnoi had an unusual career arc. He was overshadowed by Spassky as a junior in Leningrad, didn't reach the peak of his playing strength until he had already won the Soviet championship four times (Leningrad 1960, Yerevan 1962, Kiev 1964, Riga 1970), and continued ...
   Jun-04-18 J Soto Vega vs S Shankland, 2018
Strelets: "The Royal Rampage"
   Jun-04-18 N Lopes vs U O'Boyle, 2008 (replies)
Strelets: 36.Nxg6+ and White wins by force. Black has no legal alternative to 36...hxg6 37.Qh4+ Bh6 38.Qxh6#
   May-21-18 C H Alexander vs Botvinnik, 1946 (replies)
Strelets: What a bloodcurdling game. Alexander takes on the French's strongest advocate at that time and wins!
   May-20-18 A Esipenko vs M Mikadze, 2018 (replies)
Strelets: Black's position is passive. Esipenko sees that all of the pieces are out to lunch on the queenside and just rips the position open with 22.f5! to start the kingside assault. Excellent technique.
