   Oct-04-11 Tarrasch vs Colle, 1924
 
druknight: 21 ...c3 looks like the most interesting try. Of course Colle messed up with the rooks on move 24. I think a better way to defend the back rank is with 28...Nf8
 
   Oct-04-11 Lasker vs Spielmann, 1925 (replies)
 
druknight: Isnt the perfectly sensible move 9...b5? Why not hit the B and open up an extended fianch for your B? I bet 4 out 5 blitz guys would do it automatically. Ironically alek himself commented on move 9. But not very insightfully in my opinion... You'll notice at this pt in the game ...
 
   Oct-04-11 Rubinstein vs Alekhine, 1922 (replies)
 
druknight: Has anyone given any thought to 25...b5? with an eye to the bank rank issues of white.
 
   Sep-08-11 Bogoljubov vs Alekhine, 1934
 
druknight: not too fond of the way Bogo handles positional play. I thought he was going to play 20 f3 or 22 f3 to hit the N or B and restore that doubled pawn struture. WHy not 25 Qa4 as it pins the R?
 
   Sep-04-11 Karjakin vs Judit Polgar, 2011 (replies)
 
druknight: I have not read all the commentary here but superficial look, was any comment made as to possible 17...b4? in order to open lines as blacks R are connected and whites are not?
 
   Sep-04-11 Sicilian (B20) (replies)
 
druknight: Closed sicilian (2 b3) meets Double Ducks (e5/c5) meets Yugoslav attack (f3). This is a very useful illustrative game of how to use a positional issue to solve material problems. There are holes created on d5; b6, pins on B, pins on R...So here goes 1 e4 c4 2 b3 e5 3 Bb2 Nf6
 
   Sep-04-11 Mecking vs Botvinnik, 1967 (replies)
 
druknight: ok yeah there seems no way to saeve him at that pt. Look at move 34 he needs to add pressure to white's K as he is slight material disadvantage. Although Ra1 looks natural it is not the most direct. What if: 34 Rd4 Bf5 35 Nb4 in order to put N on d5 to hit K and pawn and keep
 
   Sep-03-11 Parma vs Szabo, 1968
 
druknight: coming back to this after awhile. It looks like black needs to get the pin in immediately as Qg6 does not put enuf pressure on the K. So: 10...Qa5 11 00 Qb6+ 12. Kh1 Bb7 13. Nd5 Bxd5 14. exd5 Kf7 11b4 may work in that line but I have doubts
 
   Sep-03-11 Uncommon King's Pawn Opening (B00) (replies)
 
druknight: Hey everybody I am back from a long vacation and I am fully rested. Hey its good to see everyone. By the way I spent most of my time in the hospital showing my friend how to win from the following. But you guys are smarter than me so set your chess clock for 5 min and try to find
 
   Sep-03-11 Smyslov vs Botvinnik, 1952
 
druknight: Hey two drunk knight moves from Smyslov and BotvinNik no less! There's a reason they call them training games, huh? Anyhow would you believe Smyslov can't be saved after move 8? Go ahead figure it out for yourself...
