   Jul-20-08 M Bobotsov vs Tal, 1958 (replies)
 
efrain chavez: That is self confidence!... and knowledge of the possibilities. The black bishop in g7 pointing at white's king castle proved to be worth the material sacrifice... but it has to be done. Great demonstration, again, by Tal.
 
   Jul-20-08 Yates vs Rubinstein, 1925 (replies)
 
efrain chavez: Perhaps the most amazing fact of the game is how after move 74, Rubinstein misses a very easy draw.
 
   Jul-18-08 Chiburdanidze vs Short, 1983 (replies)
 
efrain chavez: relentless attack. No looking back from the beginning. Amazing.
 
   Jul-17-08 A Brkic vs H Saric, 2001 (replies)
 
efrain chavez: Nice finish to a Saemisch attack. I wondered if the Queen sac worked before moving the rook to g2, but apparently black gets out of trouble by returning the qeen. However there is not much black can do to to prevent the final blow (27...Qh8, 28 hg, fg 29 Rxg6 and win), so ...
 
   May-21-08 H Runde vs Morten Jensen, 2003 (replies)
 
efrain chavez: 19 ... f5 saves black from the combination that followed, but it does not win the game. 20 Qe2 Qxd7 21 Qxa6 holds equal material. Does it not? 21... Rfc8 22 Qb7 double pin on the bishop in c7 yields an uncomfortable position for white, but playable. I think.
 
   Apr-17-08 Speelman vs T K Hemingway, 1972 (replies)
 
efrain chavez: Nice!! Although white contributed quite a bit, it is interesting to see how black's moves 5 and 6 connect with move 20 !!!! Then the clear-minded and tactically spotless profit of the once buried light-squared black bishop is both instructive and pretty. It is also inspiring ...
 
   Apr-14-08 Ed. Lasker vs G A Thomas, 1912 (replies)
 
efrain chavez: It is a good looking game, no question. I like it quite a bit. But there is by no means close to the great ones. The sequence after the queen sacrifice in h7, might be long, but it is straight forward, all forced moves. Even the sacrifice itself is not hard to "see". Many non ...
 
   Feb-08-08 Zappa vs Crafty, 2005 (replies)
 
efrain chavez: I see mate in 6: 43Ba2+ Kh8 44 Rd8 Qe7 45 Rxe8 Qxe8 46 Rd8 Qxd8 (black can "escape" mate here by giving up the queen) 47 Qxe5+ Qf6 48 Qxf6++
 
   Dec-10-07 A Artidiello vs D Freeman, 2001 (replies)
 
efrain chavez: Congratulations on the achievements so far! I enjoy a lot your concept. One problem and a few selected games a day is nice. Something I can start my workday with. Thank you very much for your good work and I do hope it continues for many more years!
 
   Dec-03-07 Hartlaub vs V Benary, 1911 (replies)
 
efrain chavez: 11... g6 weakening the dark squares in front of the king makes the black bishop on d6 "the most wanted". White goes for it right away, with the only setback of the lack of development of its king side pieces. Black "lends a hand" with 14...hxg5. Finally 17 Nd5! reveals the ...
