   Feb-08-06 A Vajda vs A Chepurnov, 1924
ellipotrix: He went wrong from the begining IMHO, He cetainly should have castled at some point on the queen side. 9.exf5 was a poor move as it surrenders control of the center 24. kf1 is suicide. I think this isn't a very strong game by Vajda
   Feb-03-06 Gligoric vs Hort, 1963 (replies)
ellipotrix: this was easy because the bishop was in trouble. So most people would ask how do I save my bishop? Can I sacrifice it to gain a positional advantage?
   Jan-17-06 Van Wely vs Topalov, 2006 (replies)
ellipotrix: Topalov has this game in the bag
   Dec-22-05 Ivkov vs A Dueckstein, 1967 (replies)
ellipotrix: i don't know for me this was fairly straight foward in comparison to yesterdays puzzel. Just pin and put the king out of harms way...this was too simple for a Thursday.
   Nov-15-05 S Abu Sufian vs C Garma, 2001 (replies)
ellipotrix: <Makaveli52> of course there is 31. ♕e1 ♖d2! if 32.♔h3 then ♖xg3! 33. ♔h4 ♖h2#; if 32. ♔h1 then ♘xg3! 33. ♔g1 ♘e4! 34. ♔h1 ♘f2! 35. ♔h2 ♘e4! 36. ♔h3 ♖g3! 37. ♔h4 ...

ellipotrix: Zsuzsa you are gorgeous..marry me?
   Jul-22-05 Tarrasch vs Reti, 1922 (replies)
ellipotrix: Well that is a splendid surprise mate with a bishop and king. I like your ending as Reti tries to throw the kitchen sink at Tarrasch but misses.
   Jul-22-05 Reshevsky vs Gligoric, 1952 (replies)
ellipotrix: It is unclear to me why black plays 39..a6 instead of 39..fxe3? Does someone know I can see a combination whereby black gets his pawn back. But I must be mising something.
   Mar-17-05 I Rogers vs Huebner, 1988 (replies)
ellipotrix: why was the game continued til Qh1? Intuitively from the poistion given to solve you can see that white has won. I just said rook takes knight that's it. You don't need to say anything you? you know you are attacking the rook with the pawn and you can launch your ...
   Nov-23-04 Chess Genius vs Timman, 1997 (replies)
ellipotrix: No Way <Marco65> that is just soft. Black may play like that to move 45...♕e5 but then white can play 46. ♕d7+ ♖e7 47.♕g4+ then 47..♔h8. white mates with 48. ♖xh6# or 47..♔h7 48. ♕g6. and then its all over bar the shouting.
