   Aug-08-18 W So vs V Durarbayli, 2015 (replies)
areknames: <Penguincw> In the position of your alternate puzzle, White already has the advantage of a bishop and a pawn so the game is won already.
   Aug-01-18 Karpov vs Ulf Andersson, 1989 (replies)
areknames: <Howard> According to the Swedish mag Schacknytt 9/1989, the chief arbiter left the decision to adjourn up to Andersson, who apparently wanted to continue playing but found it difficult to go against Karpov's wishes. Kasparov, it seems, wasn't too impressed with Andersson's ...
   Aug-01-18 Kasparov vs Ribli, 1989
areknames: According to the Swedish mag Schacknytt 9/1989, as soon as Kasparov had accepted the draw offer Vaganjan charged towards the board and pointed out the missed opportunity of 26.Rxb5 to a stunned World Champion.
   Jul-27-18 M Bluebaum vs E Najer, 2017 (replies)
areknames: Thanks <patzer2>, I was also wondering what to do if White played 26.fxg3 and couldn't decide between 26..e3 and 26..Nxg4. I suppose one should always consider what happens if one's opponent actually accepts a sacrifice.
   Jul-22-18 Beliavsky vs M Stean, 1982
areknames: To me it seems almost incomprehensible that a GM of Stean's strength could succumb so easily in what at the time would have been one of the most extensively analyzed opening variations. His attempt to get out of book so early certainly backfired, perhaps he was already quite weary
   Jul-22-18 P Carlsten vs M Shepherd, 2011
areknames: White's pieces keep retreating to the back rank, and that only works if your name happens to be Tigran V Petrosian. His time consuming manoeuvres prevent him from playing the prophylactic Kh1, which in the end costs him a piece and the game.
   Jul-20-18 G Gajewski vs G Daubenfeld, 2001
areknames: <The final Nc3 is glorious> Indeed it is. Its purpose is not to involve the knight in the attack but to clear the back rank for the rook with tempo. Even if Black doesn't capture on c3 and moves his queen Rxf7 still follows.
   Jul-19-18 V Kuznetsov vs G Gajewski, 2007 (replies)
areknames: As <mmousez> pointed out, 24.fxg3 certainly seems like a better option for White, but what an incredible game. A 10th move TN in one of the most well-known Ruy Lopez variations?? Way to go!
   Jul-18-18 Fedorov vs N Neelakantan, 1999 (replies)
areknames: What <FSR> said. I'm glad I was able to spot the key quiet move 27.Rg1 and that White's king is perfectly safe.
   Jul-16-18 N Laursen vs Hector, 2005
areknames: 5.c4? is such a weird move, leaving the Spanish Bishop with hardly any scope at all.
