I am an older 1800 player, back to the game after years of abstinence. I am from the Netherlands.

   Apr-18-15 Pinkus vs R Durkin, 1941
Tullius: I don't see a forced mate, but White is winning anyway. After 25...Kg8 26.Nxc5 Black cannot recapture because his Rook is also hanging. After 26...Re8 27.Nxe4 Rxe4 Black has only two minor pieces for the Queen and is four pawns down.
   Apr-10-15 Bisguier vs W Adams, 1950 (replies)
Tullius: 33...Rh8 looks suspicious; it does not seem to serve any purpose, so maybe the score is wrong here. It would make much more sense if 33...Ra8 was played instead; this would explain why 37.Re8 did not happen. Of course this is mere speculation, but something must be wrong here. Maybe
   Apr-03-15 Velimirovic vs Kurajica, 1976 (replies)
Tullius: I wouldn't be surprised if he had missed it. But then his opponent must have overlooked it as well, otherwise he would have resigned instead of playing 37...Rc4. Recently I found something similar in the game Bisguier vs W Adams, 1950, where White missed the very simple 37.Re8#.
   Apr-01-15 M Fiorito vs Krantz, 1988
Tullius: All the above after 18.Qb3. Of course I meant 19.Nf3, not 19.Kf3.
   Mar-30-15 Duchamp vs Tartakower, 1930
Tullius: With 25...Nd4 Tartakower informs his opponent that he does not want a bloodless draw, which by then is already looming heavily over this game. This move instantly turns a boring game into a real fight. It should have ended in a draw anyway, but Duchamp fell into a very nice trap: ...
   Mar-24-15 I Nepomniachtchi vs Karjakin, 2010
Tullius: The score is not complete. As you can see in the youtube video, this is what followed: 48.Kg2 h6 49.Ne2 Ra3 50.Nd4+ Kf6 51.Ne2 Ra2 52.Nc3 Rc2 53.Nd5+ Rd2.
   Mar-18-15 Blackburne vs H Gifford, 1874
Tullius: Edward Winter C.N. 8127 : We note, though, that when Steinitz annotated the "beautiful little off-hand game" in The Field, 25 July 1874, he gave a different finish: 16. nxf7+ Kh5 "White announced mate in five moves, viz.: 17.Be2+ Kh4 18.g3+ Kh3 19.Nf4+ Nxf4 20.Rxf4, and mates next
   Mar-05-15 E Dekker vs J L Switzar, 1873
Tullius: <GrahamClayton> It was an insignificant oversight by any standard.
   Feb-18-15 Hug vs Portisch, 1973
Tullius: Dzindzi maintains that about 70 percent of all sacs are flawed.
   Feb-17-15 S Von Freymann vs Duras, 1912 (replies)
Tullius: A hash indeed. A better translation would be: "To put a piece en prise is easier to forgive than a move like this".
