   Aug-29-11 Spassky vs Bronstein, 1960 (replies)
 
cn1ght: I agree with what several people have stated, I just do not see this as being a great sacrifice... With "correct" play by both sides it gives a very nearly even game (following the lines given on previous pages my chess program gives white +0.06 which is negligible.) Obviously either
 
   Aug-08-09 J Littlewood vs D Lemoir, 2009
 
cn1ght: Neither I nor my computer saw anything wrong with 27 Qe4, although I didn't leave it on the move for more than a few minutes so either there's something REALLY deep (unlikely) or Mr. Littlewood simply did not like it. An equally good question, or according to my chess program ...
 
   Jan-10-09 Shabalov vs Adianto, 2008
 
cn1ght: Black basically got steamrolled here I'd say. My guess is 14... 0-0 may have been Black's error, although not a mistake it allows White to play 15. d5 and suddenly Black seems to not have any good moves. I'm not saying Black is lost, simply that Black is worse off and never manages ...
 
   Jan-10-09 N Miezis vs Shabalov, 2008
 
cn1ght: Jeeze, 10. e5 and White's game comes crashing down basically. I don't actually have analysis for any of this, but to me 9. d4 was conceptually wrong in that white's pawn structure needs to keep an element of fluidity and his d3 pawn is holding his center together, when it pushes his ...

cn1ght: Dear Santa, *sings*All I want for Christmas is an account upgrade, an account upgrade, see my account upgraded! Oh... yea that and some money, a car, a girlfriend, a ferret, a cage for my new ferret, some ferret food for my new ferret, a ferret water bottle for my new ferret, some ...
 
   Dec-05-08 F Bohatirchuk vs Capablanca, 1925 (replies)
 
cn1ght: Just a thought, but 16 N-d5 looks like it gives White a slightly better game to me... if 16... exd5 17 exd5 and White regains his piece whereas if the knight is allowed to take the bishop on e7 then White has 2 bishops... Again, if exd5 then the board opens up but White's Bishops ...
 
   Nov-24-08 V Tukmakov vs Vaganian, 1975
 
cn1ght: Vaganian just ripped this guy past shredings... I especially love 16... f4! then 17... f3 Vaganian's position throughout most of the opening seems to hang by a thread on not being utterly lost, and yet white never has a chance to gain the upper hand...
 
   Nov-12-08 Kiril D Georgiev vs Shirov, 1992 (replies)
 
cn1ght: I looked at B-g6 but then I I didn't check for a continuation after ...Q-e6 as I simply assumed Black's position would hold then I noticed B-h7 winning the exchange with a probable won endgame... According to my computer B-h7 does still win, just nowhere near as nicely as the test ...
 
   Sep-05-08 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985 (replies)
 
cn1ght: 2 minor pieces versus rook endgame is extremely difficult to play I learned from experience- I had one at my last tournament. Luckily for me my opponent played it badly so I ended up having pawn, knight, bishop to his rook, unfortunately for me, he was able to sack his rook for my ...
 
   Aug-28-08 Karpov vs Vaganian, 1988
 
cn1ght: 18. N-h5? I liked White better up until that point. The Knight ends up getting traded for the Bishop on e6 anyway, why waste the 2 moves, and allow him to untangle his pawn structure, when 18. Nxe6+ fxe6 19. Bxe4 dxe4 20. N-d2 gives Black a difficult endgame in which I prefer White? ...
