   Jan-07-18 Liu Wenzhe vs J H Donner, 1978
brimarern: Mating Net, even though ...h6, was part of the problem, Donner made a bunch of questionable moves afterwards...c5, and the most questionable move -castling into a ready made attack, with the center closed. It is an awesome game to play over, but to be quite honest, 5.g4 is ...
   Jan-07-18 Tarjan vs Kramnik, 2017
brimarern: GM Robert Hess, annotating the game for the December 2017 issue of Chess Life magazine said it best. "James Tarjan won this game by...doing nothing. He understood that, despite the rating differential, his opponent would not have an easy time landing the knockout blow. At a ...
   Dec-20-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017
brimarern: A ridiculously beautiful game! It has a feel like something produced by World Champion Capablanca. A piece for one pawn? And AlphaZero has such a grip on the position that it finds moves that look so patient, yet doesn't let black off the hook! I need to add this game to my memory
   Jul-03-17 Eugene Aleksandrovich Znosko-Borovsky
brimarern: "To avoid mistakes is the beginning, as it is the end, of mastery in chess." -GM Eugene Znosko-Borovsky
   Apr-09-17 Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858 (replies)
brimarern: After playing over and memorizing this game for over 40 years, I had an epiphany. The Duke (and the Count if you want to throw him in there too) didn't play that badly. Yes, it was a 17 move beating -a beautiful 17 move beating. However, when you "examine the gears of the watch" ...
   Mar-02-17 Edward Lasker (replies)
brimarern: Congratulations to Edward Lasker on his upcoming (and long overdue) induction into the U.S. Chess Hall of Fame!
   Sep-25-16 Caro-Kann, Steinitz Variation (B17)
brimarern: I can see how people like Karpov and Petrosian can play this, but this variation looks like the equivalent of waving a red cape in front of a bull. I'm still amazed at how Kasparov used this variation in the final game of his match against Deep Blue ( Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997 )
   Jul-15-16 Kenneth Ray Smith (replies)
brimarern: Ken Smith's Famous Chess Improvement Course. A Classic!
   Nov-18-15 Topalov vs Karjakin, 2002
brimarern: A VERY pretty game played by Topalov! It looked as if I was playing over a game from Chernev's Most Instructive Games book!
   Aug-07-14 Pinter vs S Arkhipov, 1983 (replies)
brimarern: This game is SICK! Quick, what are some basic principles of opening play? Develop your pieces, don't waste time, don't move the same piece twice, castle early, etc. White proceeds to break at least 3 of the above mentioned principles (moves his king before castling, moves his KN ...
