   Mar-26-17 Spassky vs Stein, 1971 (replies)
cunctatorg: Bobby Fischer played KID against Taimanov and Larsen back in 1971 but he never played this opening against Petrosian, not to mention Spassky... However Garry Kasparov was a devoted practitioner of this lovely, "adventurous" and exciting opening...
   Mar-26-17 Karpov vs Smirin, 1988
cunctatorg: Anatoly Karpov's chess glorifies the game.
   Mar-26-17 Karpov vs R Nicevski, 1976
cunctatorg: Well, 42. ... Rc3?? leads to an immediate defeat but I wonder if the position after 40. Rxe2 and the (unavoidable?) exchange of all Rooks isn't a winning one for White; it seems to me that White has a huge (if not winning) advantage then... By the way, Karpov's play at this very ...
   Mar-26-17 A Planinc vs Parma, 1976 (replies)
cunctatorg: <@Grega>; my observation is that this fighting spirit has never died! During fifties, sixties and seventies it was more rare but grandmasters like Mikhail Tal, Victor Korchnoi, Dragoljub Velimirovic, Anthony Miles, many others and of course RJF provided a strongest ...
   Mar-23-17 Viktor Korchnoi
cunctatorg: Korchnoi was a rare personality among the great players; in my opinion we can't hope for someone compared to him in the visible future.
   Mar-05-17 A Raykhman vs T Heinemann, 2016 (replies)
cunctatorg: Perhaps that extraordinary move 12... Rxe2 was a typical Computer's achievement...
   Feb-27-17 A Muzychuk vs Zhao Xue, 2016 (replies)
cunctatorg: Great blitz though!!
   Feb-21-17 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927
cunctatorg: When I had firstly studied (and a little-bit analyzed) this game, some thirty-five years ago (with the help of Kotov's book about Alexander Alekhine) I didn't know what to admire more; Capablanca's tremendous defensive resourcefulness (after move 14) or Alekhine's tremendous ...
   Feb-19-17 Karpov vs Stein, 1971
cunctatorg: Five games between Anatoly Karpov and Leonid Stein, two Karpov's wins and it seems to me that Karpov was extremely inspired by Stein's opposition; the quality of these two wins is magnificent!!
   Feb-19-17 Tal vs Uhlmann, 1963
cunctatorg: "Tasty chess" anyways; obviously one of the many reasons that the vast majority of the chess world keeps falling in love with Misha Tal! Almost never (if ever...) you can find a dull and boring position in his games!...
