   Aug-16-17 Colle vs J J G Delvaux, 1929 (replies)
Zephyr10: Why is this game not in Chessbase's giant database?!
   May-16-17 Nimzowitsch vs Salwe, 1911
Zephyr10: "RookFile: If Nimzo was alive today I'd hire him as director of marketing for my company." Indeed, I don't know if a greater proclamation of chess genius has ever been made on account of the win of a SINGLE PAWN. ;-)
   Mar-21-17 Reshevsky vs Botvinnik, 1948 (replies)
Zephyr10: Benzol: This is the correct game score. I'd like to think so, as 10. Bd2 just looks better than 10. Kd2, but ... 1) as Surena pointed out, 21. Rc1 doesn't make sense, ... the alternate score's move (the only other different move from this score) is 21. Ke1, which makes more ...
   Jun-05-16 Lilienthal vs B H Wood, 1946
Zephyr10: @wolfmaster, Wood didn't give up a piece, he lost it, black was going to be down a piece once white played pawn e3 to e4.
   May-01-15 Karpov vs Botvinnik, 1964 (replies)
Zephyr10: Interesting comments on Karpov's style. Kramnik made the interesting observation that Karpov was not a strategic player, that he usually didn't think more than two moves ahead. But that he was the ultimate positional player. In the same interview, Kramnik opined that Petrosian ...
   Apr-01-15 Svidler vs Carlsen, 2010
Zephyr10: "he's a bit like Petrosian, a deceptively strong tactician. Not one of the best, there a quite a few better, but good enough to be at his current level." -- fisayo I've never heard such horse manure in my life! Good enough to be at his current level??! That level is world champion ...
   Jun-20-14 Timman vs Bronstein, 1975
Zephyr10: In "Petrosian's Legacy" the game is listed as "Bronstein-Timman," which I thought might be just a citation error, but Petrosian, referring to White before move 17, says "but even here Bronstein manages to obtain a slight advantage." Kind of stumped here.
   Jun-12-14 Tarrasch vs Lasker, 1908 (replies)
Zephyr10: Wow, just read the entire comment thread, too much!! So much vitriol (and psycho-babble)!!! Anyways, just to offer Karpov/Matsukevich's two cents: at move 25, they feel White should have played Nf5, while immediately taking on d5 laid bare the e3 square.
   Mar-19-14 Botvinnik vs Alekhine, 1938 (replies)
Zephyr10: Seriously though, there's so much instructive commentary on these boards that players visit to learn from, why allow inane ramblings that are neither entertaining nor informative? Even the use of spellcheck apparently requires more consideration than Mr. Taylor possesses.
