   Sep-01-17 Averbakh vs Bondarevsky, 1948 (replies)
eaglewing: <Nova> and <Petrosianic>: The main principle is, that the king needs to be able to attack the pawn. That is usually decisive. Therefore, the position by <Petrosianic> can be won following several main steps. First, the king needs to cross the rank defended by ...

eaglewing: And how to continue following 35....Nd2 36. Bb7?
   Apr-10-17 Tylkowski vs A Wojciechowski, 1931 (replies)
eaglewing: <devere>: Your moves 37.Nc6! Qxc6 38.f5! are really good, it is the fastest way to reposition. It looks like White can hold onto the a-pawn or can push f5-f6 trading f vs g and Black's hopes are gone.
   Mar-21-17 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984 (replies)
eaglewing: How to proceed as White against 35. ... e5? I think, this move has strategically defensive merits, but maybe there is a direct tactical disadvantage? Letting the rook switch to the kingside with RxPg5 is something I would like to avoid.
   Mar-09-17 Fischer vs Spassky, 1992 (replies)
eaglewing: Now, if 40. d6 is a winning move, is 39. ... Kf6 really a losing move? Instead of Kf6 which move could draw? I suspect 39. ... Bf6 could be better, taking control of g5 and d8, the squares which both passed pawns still have to take, but is it enough?
   Oct-07-16 Schmaltz vs A Vouldis, 2002 (replies)
eaglewing: 44.BxNd1 with the double centralpawn already behind seems bad. A slight hope for a draw should center on the different coulored bishops, therefore rooks and knights should be exchanged. 44. Rc2 or Rc1 look fine enough, I do not see, why Nf2+ (or anything else) would be immediately
   Sep-27-16 M Dvoretsky vs Smyslov, 1974 (replies)
eaglewing: I really dislike for Black 18. ... Bg7 and especially 19. ... f6. Black should not support the creation of a free pawn and make White get rid of its doublepawn. <@ galdur> Accordingly, I do not think 21. ... Bxc3 22.bxc3 Rd8 23.Rxd8 will fare well for Black. Against the e4 ...
   Sep-24-16 Zsuzsa Polgar vs A Maric, 1994 (replies)
eaglewing: Cats aside - what went wrong for Black? Different coulored bishops are known to be drawish (with rooks it may be more difficult). I feel uncomfortable to let White let the pawns go forward (f4+ e3-e5) and fix the black pawns on white squares. Maybe Black should have played 29. ...
   Jul-31-16 J Diez del Corral vs Portisch, 1978 (replies)
eaglewing: <al wazir> about 30...Ra1!: 31. Qf6+ followed by QxRa1. Either 31. ... Kg8 does nothing against the intrusion 32. Re7. Or 31. ... Qf7 still is not enough against the same intrusion, because Qh8+ is then still possible and decisive.
   Jul-27-16 Yu Yangyi vs W So, 2015 (replies)
eaglewing: 39. Kh3 Rd6 would still have been very drawish.
