   Jan-17-17 M Mrva vs J Dudas, 2001 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: I'm surprised no one called this "Being very un-Dudas"
   Jan-11-17 D Fridman vs S Petrosian, 2015 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: <Only when I saw black play <19...Rxc1?>, allowing the 20.Qh6 mating attack, did I realize that it couldn't have been *that* Petrosian.> Not even a 10-year-old Iron Tigran? You catch the greats in either their youth or their doddering old age, and scoring a win
   Jan-09-17 Chandler vs O I Barkan, 1975 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: <pth: <offramp: 25. Ne9+ also wins.> It is countered by Kf9> I think white gets a winning line after 25. Ne9+ Kf9 26. Qh9+ Ke8 27. f7+ Kd9 28. Bg5+
   Jan-05-17 Uhlmann vs Kholmov, 1960 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: <stst> I'm glad I wasn't the only one looking at 25. ... Nxd3 I went with a somewhat different line, though for 26. Nxd3, which may be more forcing: A) 26. Nxd3 Qxd5+ A1) 27. Rf3 Qxf3+ 28. Kg1 Qg2# A2) 27. Kg1 Rxf2 with either Qg2# or 28. Qf1 Rxf1# to follow. ...
   Jan-04-17 Seirawan vs Beliavsky, 1988 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: Trying to come up with defenses for 21. ... Bxf3 is a challenge. The best I could manage was something along the lines of: 22. gxf3 gxf3 23. Kg1 Qh8 24. Bh2 Rxh2 and then there's nothing to prevent Rh1# White appears to me to start going wrong with 12. Na4. I understand ...
   Dec-15-16 Kasparov vs Mephisto, 1985 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: In this position, the key is not giving black the tempo to play Bf8. As long as black can't play that move, its pieces are almost entirely stuck on the wrong side of the board. Hence, the forcing move 30. Rxg7 has to be the start. <agb2002> solved this much more ...
   Dec-05-16 D Fridman vs H Odeev, 1996 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: The played combination was easy enough to spot: Simplify with 38. Rxf7 Kxf7 39. Bd5 Kf8/Kg7 40. Bxg8 Kxg8 The trouble, of course, is that this doesn't necessarily improve white's position, it just simplifies the position. 38. Bd5 Bxd5 39. cxd5 followed by Kd2-c3 to shut ...
   Dec-02-16 Wei Yi vs Ding Liren, 2015 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: White's position looks good, but f7 is plainly dead. The goal has to be to turn the tempo of Rxf7 into another passer. One idea I looked at was 34. gxh5 Rxf7 35. hxg6 Rxf4+ 36. Kg3, leaving black in a bad way trying to stop both the g and h pawns, helpfully assisted by the
   Dec-01-16 D E Cori Tello vs D Real Pereyra, 2016 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: I found the accepting line (the one actually played) easily enough. Then I tried to look for declines, and what's really striking in this position is how completely impotent black's pieces are: - Any move of the queen loses her without compensation. - The Nd5 is pinned ...
   Nov-21-16 Tkachiev vs Emms, 1996 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: This one isn't a queen sac, at least: 28. Rxf8+ And from there, only 2 legal moves: A) ... Kxf8? 29. Qh8# B) ... Kg7 29. Qh7+ Kxf8 30. Qh8#
