carpetshark: I have his autobiography in Hungarian and it would be worth translating as it's full of interesting anecdotes and stories and analyses. I just never had the time. Perhaps some time in the future.
   Nov-30-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
carpetshark: Thank you, Chessgames for providing us with this excellent opportunity!
   Mar-03-15 Karpov vs Mephisto, 1983 (replies)
carpetshark: Instead of 20.Bd4... Alexander Khalifman's book recommends 20.g4 right away and after 20...Qa5 21.b4, Bxb4 the amazing move 22.Bb6! does the trick and Black loses.
   Oct-31-13 Gelfand vs Kharlov, 1999 (replies)
carpetshark: A (grand)masterly finish... Happy Halloween to everyone!
   May-03-10 Blackburne / Pillsbury vs Schiffers / Steinitz, 1896
carpetshark: In Suetin's book on the Spanish game I found the following line:7. ...Nxd4 8. NxNd4 Qb6 9. e6 Bxd4 10.exd+ Bxd7 11. Bxd7+ Kxd7 12.Be3 c5 13.Nd2 Nf6 14.0-0 (Vassiljev-Kusnetsov, Vologda, 1962)mentioning that also after 8. ...Qb6 9.Qg4 Kf8 10.Be3! white has the upper hand.
   Jun-25-09 Fischer vs U Geller, 1968 (replies)
carpetshark: I got the solution but instead of 32.Rg5 I would have played Qe6+, which also seems to give a winning attack to white.32.-,Kh7 would be answered with 33.Rh5 (33.-,Kg7 34.Qh6)and 32.-,Qf7 loses after 33.Qg4+ Qg7(33.-,Kh7 34.Rh5+)34.Rg5 winning the queen.
   Jun-10-09 K Honfi vs O Kallinger, 1960
carpetshark: Why not 15.-,Bg7?
   Jun-07-09 E Schallopp vs J Minckwitz, 1881
carpetshark: 22.-, Qc4+ also looks strong for black because after 23.Qd3 he can play 23.-,Qf4 and I can't see any proper method for white to defend himself.
   Jun-07-09 Kholmov vs V Shiyanovsky, 1961
carpetshark: Nice ending. If 28.h3? then 28.-,RXh3 29.gxh,Qg3+ and the chase of the queen ends in mate.(e.g.30.Kf1, Qxh3+ 31.Kg1 (31.Ke2,Qf3mate or 31.Kf2,Qg2+)Qh1+ 32.Kf2,Qg2+ 33.Ke3,Qf3#)and if 28.g3 then 28.-,Rxh2 29.Rxh2 (29.Kxh2,Rh8+ 30.Kg1,Qxg3+ 31.Kf1,Qf3+(31.-Bd3+would also win the ...

carpetshark: Szabo is a common surname in Hungary so it wouldn't be surprising if you met anyone from that country by that name. Happy Birthday Mr Wall!
