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!

   Dec-20-17 Kiril D Georgiev vs I 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.
   Mar-16-16 Keres vs S Kagan, 1967 (replies)
WhoKeres: Looking at the final position you have to wonder whether Keres regretted castling Q-side! I've never seen another game where a player castled Q-side and ended up with their K behind a typical K-side castling pawn structure.
   Feb-04-16 Harikrishna vs Li Chao, 2016
WhoKeres: I watched this game live and was impressed by Li Chao's patient defense. In the end he actually had a small advantage but with opposite colored Bishops neither side could gain a decisive advantage.
   Jan-07-16 Keres vs Panno, 1955
WhoKeres: An incredible game, and Keres' greatest artistic achievement (IMHO), among many beautiful games.
