clement41: Caution: 31...Qh4+?? allows 32 f4 when, although still winning, black still has some work to do. It's not every day you see ...g2 attacking Rh1 then ...b2 attacking Ra1 !
   Apr-27-17 R Griffiths vs A Bokros, 2007
clement41: Happy I calculated this right and till the end. If 29 Kd1 leaving the option 30 Ke2 unlike 29 Kb1, then 30...Qb5+ wins for black.

clement41: @<Bx chess> caution! It was not at once evident to me either, but in fact 19 ...Rxe5 20 de?? Qxe5?? 21 Rc1 -only move- Qb2 22 Qxc4 -only move-holds and even give a slight edge to white!
   Apr-24-17 Alekhine vs Bogoljubov, 1934
clement41: What a game! Classic yet beautiful combo starting 52. ?
   Apr-23-17 Leko vs P Backwinkel, 1991
clement41: wow, a nice line to know in the ...Be6 line of the Sveshnikov!
   Apr-23-17 Karpov vs Nunn, 1982
clement41: Nowadays they get to the Sveshnikov with Bg5 direclty, the move order Bf4 e5 Bg5 has almost become vintage. The 9...Be6 line instead of 9...b5! enables white to go Nc4 as Karpov showed, this is a standard pryiome. The, white got a formidable blockade on the Q-side and central ...
   Apr-23-17 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1988
clement41: I read somewhere today that at the time this game was played, 17 Qa4 was a novelty (17 Qc2 was the then main move) and as the game took place in Belfort (France), 17 Qa4 was subsequently dubbed the "Belfort move".

clement41: Black had played the opening correctly until 10...Nxd2?! which, at least IMO, is weak because it helps white develop and removes black's strongest piece in this line. Rather, he had a choice between 10. Nc5, f5, Bf5 maybe or even smthg like 10...0-0 and if 11 Nxe4 de 12 Bxe6 fe ...
   Apr-23-17 F Alvarez vs Karpov, 1972
clement41: Wow what a piece coordination. Look at these knights and Ba7!
   Apr-23-17 C C Crittenden vs D Kerr, 1956
clement41: 26 Bc2 or 26 Be2 are not enough due to 26...RxR 27 BxR Rd8 hitting the Bd1 and threatening ...Rd2+ forking the other bishop
