I am a Dane, born '48. When it comes to tournament chess, I am very much a used-to-be (as in: used to be ELO 2100+, used to be an IA..) - but I still enjoy other people's games. A site like CG is ideal in this respect.

erixn: That 5.Nd5 looks a lot like a clerical mishap (not uncommon in pre-computer days). - My guess is White "thought" Black had played 1.-c5, when 2.d3 d5 3.Nc3 dxe4 4.dxe4 Qc7 5.Nd5 makes sense. - On the other hand, I don't quite understand why Black didn't resign immediately when he ...

erixn: How can this be 1-0 ? Black is a piece + 2P up, 36.Bxg2 Kxd7 simplifies to a winning position, and 36. K any is mate in 2.

erixn: On 24..Be3 25.Rxc8+ Kg7 it seems to me White may try 26.Nd2!?, when 26...Rxd2 allows 27.Rg8+ Kxg8 28.Qa8+ Kg7 29.fxe3! when Pg2 is protected or (27.Rg8+) Kh6 30.Qxf7 protecting Pf2. And similarly if QxN. - I don't see any immediate mates, although Black's attack may still be ...

erixn: @An Englishman: I believe that on 32.fxe5 the best response is 32.-f4+ discovering check as well as threatening Qxg3mate.

erixn: I don't know about time control in this tournament... but for a GM to be missing 59.Qe4+ looks odd (he seems to be preparing just that with his preceding moves)
   Jan-04-19 Wade vs A G Shoebridge, 1945 (replies)
erixn: I thought 22.Ng5+ too - at first. But I couldn't see my way through 22.-, Kg6.
   Dec-23-17 Smyslov vs J H Donner, 1967 (replies)
erixn: Cheapo: What about (16 b4 Bxb4 17 Nc6 Qc5 18 Nxb4 Qxb4) 19 Qf3 ...? The idea being that when B saves his R (Rb8 or Bd7), then 20 Ba3 - winning the exchange, as Qxa3 loses the Q to 21 Bh7+
   Sep-12-16 E Keogh vs W Lewis, 1966 (replies)
erixn: I got 19.Rxh5 easily enough, but it does seem like 19.Ng5 wins easily too: Black has only 19..Nf6 and then, after 20.Bxg6 he is unable to defend against all the threats against h7, e.g.: 20..fxg6 21.Qxg6+ Kh8 22.Rxh5, or 20..Bc6/Bd4/Qc7 21.Rxh5
   Aug-15-16 S Niemzowitsch vs Neumann, 1899 (replies)
erixn: I suppose 13...Qxg5 should be answered by 14.Qxf7+ Kd8 15.Qc7+ Ke8 16.Rae1!, when Bxe5? allows 17.Qf7+ with mate to follow, and after dxe5 17.h4! the black Q gets in trouble: Qg3 18.Re3! or Qg6 18.Nf4!

erixn: @al wazir: Because the Bg7 is pinned
