   Aug-10-17 Spassky vs J H Donner, 1966 (replies)
clement41: Nice game by Spassky. This Qe2/Rd1 plan is also seen sometimes in the open Ruy Lopez (known as the russian line I reckon). It is interesting how the centre battle gradually turns in white's favour: white rightly avoids 10 cd? Nxd4 11 Nxd4 Qxd4 where black would have a strong ...
   Aug-09-17 E German vs W de Oliveira, 1951
clement41: 21 Rxg4 is also a candidate (as is 21 Rxe5), but I can't help thinking white thought he'd win material and perhaps even the queen with the zwichenzug 21 Rc4 enticing 21...Qxd5 in view of 22 Rxg4 opening the b1-h7 diagonal fxg4 23 Bxh7+ Kxh7 24 Qxd5. Yes, in this line white does ...
   Aug-09-17 Savon vs Polugaevsky, 1971
clement41: Amazing game from the so-called outsider who won the 1971 USSR championship undefeated!
   Aug-08-17 G Popilski vs Jobava, 2013
clement41: 7 h3?! is questionable in opposite-side castling Dragons, as white deprives himself of the typical attacking lever h4-h5. 9 g4?! is too provocative and premature; plus how does white intend to open lines versus black's K-side structure? 9...d5! : black, already ahead in ...
   Aug-08-17 P Rolland vs M Bobotsov, 1966
clement41: This endgame is a lot of fun hence I am surprised this game remains hitherto unkibitzed. An instance of how black could have gone wrong: 52...Qb4? 53 Nf6+ Kxg7 54 Nh5+ Kf8 55 Qh8+ Ke7 56 dxc6 +-
   Aug-07-17 Sherzer vs Acs, 1998
clement41: Sherzer, who is a GM known for highly agressive play judging by his games, gets here a taste of his own medicine. After 29 fg!? the position is strikingly similar to [DIAGRAM] in Geller vs Smyslov, 1965 , with exactly the same mating pattern being used although of course each has ...
   Aug-04-17 O Reeh vs Tal, 1989
clement41: As is usual with Tal, you can extract diagrams from this game that make good calculation exercises, such as e.g. the position after black's 33rd
   Aug-01-17 Anand vs J Hickman, 2007 (replies)
clement41: Although 34 Rh8+ wins too, with the same eval., 34 Rxc8+ is a better practical decision as it is clear and risk-free while 34 Rh8+ Kd7 forces white to find 35 Raxc8 as 35 Rhxc8 is just equal, plus black still has threats after due to the rooks on the 2nd row
   Jul-30-17 D Barua vs Korchnoi, 1982
clement41: I simply am fond of this game. So tense, so much action going on, and what an endgame!
   Jul-30-17 Kasparov vs D Barua, 2000
clement41: 29 Qa3! beginners would not at once understand why white is willing to deteriorate his structure. Reminds Rozentalis vs R Appel, 1993 29 Qa3! and Eljanov vs Carlsen, 2017 13 Qa3!?
