   Jun-25-16 AVRO (1938) (replies)
backrank: >> AylerKupp: <<offramp> Am I alone in thinking that Kasparov is a better politician than he is a chess player?> You probably aren't. But you and others who share the same opinion should consider that if Kasparov was a better politician than he is a chess player ...
   Jun-07-16 Viktor Korchnoi (replies)
backrank: <gars: I ask myself: are there games in which he sacrifices his Queen? If so, I do not know a single one.> Here is one: Hug vs Korchnoi, 1978 Of course, it's not typical for Korchnoi's style, albeit brilliant.
   Jul-30-14 Aronian vs V Popov, 2005
backrank: I have submitted a correction note; now we have to wait if there is any response to it (to my experience, usually there is none).
   Jul-20-14 Spielmann vs Flamberg, 1914 (replies)
backrank: Spielmann made a tarte flambee out of Flamberg.
   Mar-22-14 Ponomariov vs Kramnik, 2010 (replies)
backrank: One of the great games of the 21st century. 16 Bxd5!! is a stunning move, and 19 e6! is a worthy follow-up.
   Jan-25-14 Bill Gates vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
backrank: Was it really Carlsen himself who played this game so weakly? Or did he send a double?
   Nov-26-13 Huebner vs K Rogoff, 1972 (replies)
backrank: I will try out that variation myself next time ;)
   Nov-24-13 Marshall vs Lasker, 1907 (replies)
backrank: Now I have looked up the game in 'Kings of Chess' by William Winter, and he gives 33 ... Qe3+, too. It seems to become more and more likely that the score is incorrect and Qe3+ is the move that has been actually played.
   Nov-19-13 Capablanca vs F S Dunkelsbuhler, 1913 (replies)
backrank: In German, 'dunkel' means 'dark'. Obviously, this is not a very bright game on Dunkelsbuhler's part ;)
   Sep-08-13 Peter Leko (replies)
backrank: < OhioChessFan: It is amazing to realize he's only 34. Seems like he's been around forever.> For over 20 years now :) But I find it even more amazing that almost no one seems to be interested in him now, even as POTD.
