   Nov-27-18 Reti vs Rubinstein, 1919 (replies)
 
Strelets: The cancellation of the Lasker-Rubinstein match in 1914 was a great loss to chess. Just think of the endgames they would've played!
 
   Nov-10-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
Strelets: This should be encouraging for Fabi: his first game with the black pieces and Carlsen doesn't get anything from the opening.
 
   Oct-07-18 Gelfand vs Shirov, 1993 (replies)
 
Strelets: <Peabody> I'm not so sure about that. If Black takes the bishop then Gelfand could play 37.Qh4+, which will eventually force a trade of queens. After Black recaptures, White plays Rxc5 leaving him a pawn up in an endgame with a good knight against a bad bishop and another ...
 
   Sep-27-18 Y Zherebukh vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
 
Strelets: <Madman99X> Words to live by.
 
   Sep-25-18 I Stavrianakis vs U Weber, 2008 (replies)
 
Strelets: 42.Rxh7+ grills Weber like Cretan apaki. Mate or decisive loss of material is impossible to avoid.
 
   Sep-20-18 Kotronias vs Xiu Deshun, 2011 (replies)
 
Strelets: I really need to take a closer look at Kotronias' games. He's been in two puzzles this week and they've both been really impressive.
 
   Sep-19-18 Lubensky vs Geller, 1949 (replies)
 
Strelets: Excellent tribute by Kotov to the player who did this to him in the same Soviet championship as this semifinal: Kotov vs Geller, 1949 ,
 
   Sep-19-18 Spassky vs Stein, 1971
 
Strelets: <ewan14> Yeah, a 28-move draw in the Fianchetto Variation at the Piatigorsky Cup. He also used it in the 1970 Herceg Novi blitz championship, winning this time.
 
   Sep-19-18 Kotronias vs D King, 1990 (replies)
 
Strelets: <Afroim> Not sure if I agree with that. Black has 16...Nf5! 17.Nxc5 Nxg3 18.fxg3 Bxc5 when he's a pawn ahead and only needs to castle to complete his development.
 
   Sep-14-18 Kmoch vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1926
 
Strelets: I'm with <Rookfile>. Black gets into a passive position, trades off a fianchettoed dark-squared bishop and gives up the a-file for free, and then drops a tempo with 29...Rc7?
