Member since Jan-10-03 · Last seen Oct-21-18
I have been playing for over 25 years. I was an OTB USCF expert and still an A player. I am a CM in correspondence chess. Keres is my favorite player, but my playing style is more like Botvinnik or Nimzovich, though I have far less ability than they did!

   Aug-11-18 G Jones vs T Luther, 2006
 
WhoKeres: Jones must have been in time trouble as he has a clear advantage in the final position. The middle game tactical battle was sensational!
 
   Jun-01-18 Seidman vs Ragozin, 1945
 
WhoKeres: Nice technique from GM Ragozin. He utilized his good knight vs. Seidman's bad bishop and timed the breakthrough on f4 nicely. This game shows the difference in class between a GM and a strong national master.
 
   Feb-22-18 Breyer vs Janowski, 1913 (replies)
 
WhoKeres: Beautiful use of the bishop pair by one of the greatest masters of their use...Janowski!
 
   Dec-20-17 Kiril D Georgiev vs I R Ibragimov, 1998
 
WhoKeres: Excellent endgame technique and use of the initiative from the opening onward by GM Georgiev.
 
   Dec-07-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
 
WhoKeres: It looks to me like the handicap of plying without an opening book hurt Stock fish in this game. There are a number of paths to equality on the black side of Steinitz's attack in the French defense hut Stockfish went astray early on. White's sacrifices and pawn play are impressive!
 
   Oct-31-17 Byvshev vs Levenfish, 1950
 
WhoKeres: A model French Defense game by GM Levenfish. He destroys white's center then advances his center pawns to counter white's king side attack. Finally, he converts the endgame by foxing off the Queens and picking up an additional pawn.
 
   Jul-20-17 Tran Tuan Minh vs I E Morovic-Fernandez, 2017
 
WhoKeres: Excellent positional play by white in a Petrosian-like crush. The variation with an early ...c4 from black doesn't seem to generate enough counterplay for black. C x d4 is better.
 
   Feb-13-17 Averbakh vs H Rossetto, 1958 (replies)
 
WhoKeres: A positional masterpiece by GM Averbakh. I think black could have improved earlier by playing 13...Rfe8. The K-rook seems passively placed on the d-file and ultimately doesn't adequately defend the d-pawn thanks to Averbakh's solid positional play.
 
   Oct-29-16 E Jimenez Zerquera vs Keres, 1963
 
WhoKeres: Keres' play in this game reminds one of Capablanca at his best. Beautiful technique to grind down a lesser play and bring home the full point with black!
 
   Aug-16-16 Benko vs Szabo, 1974
 
WhoKeres: Interesting that despite all the short draws Szabo made along the way to winning this tournament he didn't make one with his former compatriot, Benko. Benko showed some nerves, dropping an exchange via an elementary tactical blunder, which Szabo easily converted into a win.
