   Oct-16-17 Lasker vs Chigorin, 1895 (replies)
cunctatorg: This game -from 1895- is the first chronologically, striking "blockade game" (in the best Nimzowitschian tradition!!...) I have ever seen!! Do you know even older great "blockade games"?!? By the way, I now realize that Aron Nimzowitsch failed to present any Chigorin game (or ...
   Oct-07-17 Van Wely vs Kramnik, 1998
cunctatorg: The whining aside, this is a really great game by van Wely; the idea of the advance of his King (in order to find ... shelter from, say, a perpetual check, is bold!!
   Sep-21-17 Rubinstein vs Salwe, 1904
cunctatorg: A hard but very instructive lesson...
   Aug-02-17 G Palmason vs Tal, 1964
cunctatorg: Had Gudmundur Palmason played 28. Qa8! Kg7 29. Kh3 (with a clear advantage for White), most probably Mikhail Tal would have won this game too... Nope!! The modest and solid move 28. Qe2 (!?!) was the right (and wisest) decision!!
   Aug-01-17 Yates vs Nimzowitsch, 1923 (replies)
cunctatorg: It's of course a great game by Aron Nimzowitsch! However it seems to me that F.D. Yates proved to be quite resourceful here and his brave resistance helped very much the quality of the game. Well, Yates' name always reminds me of the famous Alekhine-Yates King march 1922 game, ...
   Jul-27-17 Kmoch vs Nimzowitsch, 1927 (replies)
cunctatorg: This extremely interesting game is rather mathematics than chess though!!...
   Jul-20-17 Pillsbury vs W Napier, 1902 (replies)
cunctatorg: Is 19... Rb6 (surrendering the pawn at h6 and the King's fortifications) the "relatively best" move? I guess so...
   Jul-03-17 P Van der Sterren vs V Malaniuk, 1987
cunctatorg: RIP GM Malaniuk... At this very game a Dutch GM attempts the siege of the Leningrad Dutch, the favorite of the late GM who created an epic defense!! Thus "... The Dutch Siege of the Leningrad Dutchman from Ukraine!" ... or "The Dutch Siege of the Leningrad" or so!...
   Jul-03-17 Vladimir P Malaniuk (replies)
cunctatorg: I would like to read any great game of the late Grandmaster at his favorite (as Black) opening of the Leningrad Dutch as a game of the day, entitled: "The Siege of Leningrad"! Of course the aforementioned title is ... a banalite, therefore you could put it as: "The Siege of the ...
   Jun-25-17 Janowski vs Capablanca, 1918
cunctatorg: One of the more impressive and lovely games I've ever seen!! And perhaps one of the more masterful JRC games!!...
