   Dec-08-18 R Crotto vs Kathleen Hindle, 1976 (replies)
areknames: < Dunno the latest, but 7...Nh5 was considered a fully playable line back in my day.> Fair enough, I stand corrected. 7..Nh5 seems to be quite playable indeed.
   Dec-07-18 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1978 (replies)
areknames: <It seems that Karpov just lost the exchange and got ground down by a super gm. This is no classic> Indeed it isn't, just a very poor performance by Karpov. Somehow the reigning WC couldn't cope with a juggernaut such as 1.g3 being sprung upon him out of the blue. Go figure.
   Dec-05-18 M Pein vs Svidler, 1991 (replies)
areknames: At the time of this game Svidler was only 15 and not yet a GM. Pein's almost nonchalant demolition of him is nonetheless remarkable.
   Dec-05-18 Beliavsky vs R Roskar, 2008 (replies)
areknames: Like others I didn't consider 32.Qf6+ but saw almost instantaneously that capturing twice on h5 followed by Qg3+ will eventually win. If I'd had a few minutes on the clock I would have happily played that OTB.
   Dec-04-18 Balashov vs Jansa, 2017 (replies)
areknames: Very familiar opening pattern - at least to myself - that Balashov treated somewhat passively.
   Dec-01-18 Movsesian vs Ni Hua, 2006 (replies)
areknames: Brilliant game and brilliant pun.
   Nov-22-18 S Jackson vs Barbara Pernici, 1976
areknames: It doesn't make any sense for Black not to play 13..Nc4 which would have taken the b3 Bishop out of the game, instead of allowing it to exert a punishing influence on the remainder of the encounter.
   Nov-16-18 L'Ami vs Van Wely, 2017
areknames: Loek, I'm not really your friend.
   Nov-07-18 M Bezold vs D J Ledger, 2008
areknames: My visualization was too quick and careless, so I ended up playing 40.Rxg6+ which of course allows 40..Rxe5, however 41.Rf8# is still possible! Easier than Monday.
   Nov-05-18 L Dominguez vs Aronian, 2016 (replies)
areknames: Mondays are much harder these days, not a bad thing either.
