coxscorner: I wonder why they didn't release any of the draws? Surely some of those were interesting.
 
   Jul-07-13 de Riviere vs Morphy, 1863 (replies)
 
coxscorner: 11...Nh7 is a well thought out move. It is clear that Morphy was already looking at the sacrifice on f3 this early in the game. 14...Bh2+ is a forcing continuation 15. Kxh2, f4!? saccing the e-pawn to set up the attack. This is a game Tal would have been happy to play.

coxscorner: Why is it that promising young players from the west, particularly US and England dont want to become chess professionals, or at least give it a shot? 19 and his strength he could become very strong if he dedicated himself. Waitzkin was the same way,preferring school and expanded

coxscorner: The game ends at move 40. White resigned. White loses a piece after: 40...Nd4! 41.Rf2 Nxf3+ 42.Rxf3 Bd5!
 
   Jul-17-04 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999 (replies)
 
coxscorner: 24. Rxd4!! One of the most shocking moves ever played! Of this move GM Larry Christiansen wrote: "This terrific shot was a basis of the strengthening move 24. Rhe1. White saves his position by finding mating patterns that utilize to the degree his apparently disjointed forces.
 
   Jul-17-04 Larsen vs Spassky, 1970 (replies)
 
coxscorner: 13. Bf3 does not help as 13...hxg3! is still crushing. eg 14. Bg2, Bxe3! 15. Ke2 (15. dxe3, Nxe3 16. Qe2, Bg4! is kaput) 15...Bxf4 16. Qe2, Qg5! Black has a raging attack.
 
   Jul-17-04 Robert E Byrne vs Fischer, 1963 (replies)
 
coxscorner: 17...Nxe3 18. Qd2 Nothing can add up to Byrne's own words: "As I was sitting there wondering why Bobby would play such an obviously bad and lost continuation as 18...Nxd1? there came..." 18...Nxg2!! "...suddenly the brilliant move 18...Nxg2!! Then it dawned on me that Bobby ...

coxscorner: A beautful mate with the king! 34...Kh7 35. Qxg6+, Kh8 36. Qh6+, Kg8 37. Kf6 followed by Qg7#
 
   Jul-17-04 Oll vs J M Hodgson, 1993 (replies)
 
coxscorner: Yes 45. Bxb4 was played in the actual game when 45...Qa2! is a beautiful Queen sac. Black's plan beginning with 34...Kh7!! was not easy to anticipate, an original idea.
 
   Jul-12-04 Polugaevsky vs Nezhmetdinov, 1958 (replies)
 
coxscorner: 24. a3!? was of interest because the rook stays on f1 making sacks on f4 dubious and it forces the knight on b4 to make a decision. It definately deserved closer inspection. 24. a3!? Nxc2+ 25.Qxc2 Qh3 26.Bxe5 dxe5 27.Rh1 Rxf4 28.Kd3 Rf3+ 29.Kc4 Qg2 30.Rag1 Qf2 31.Rxh6 But I think
