grozny: The Miles-Vaisser game is now in the database: A Miles vs Vaisser, 1998 Interesting game.
 
   Jul-04-04 Smyslov vs Botvinnik, 1941 (replies)
 
grozny: <At three different places c2 is soo tempting; and soo wrong.> Yes. When solving the combo, my calculation went like this: " 56... c2 is the obvious and tempting choice, but since this is a Sunday puzzle at chessgames.com, it can't be right so it must be one of the other passed
 
   Jul-01-04 N Mannheimer vs Nimzowitsch, 1930 (replies)
 
grozny: "Mannheimer Steamrolled".... *groan* It took a second to feel the pun...er, the pain.
 
   Jun-30-04 B Wall vs R Gantt, 1978 (replies)
 
grozny: Bill Wall has a great collection of miniatures. For some really bad chess, check out "Bad Chess" on his web page: http://www.geocities.com/siliconval...
 
   Jun-27-04 L D Evans vs S Tatai, 1978
 
grozny: I wonder what the back story is on this one...? These 11 moves are exactly the same as Fischer vs Unzicker, 1970 where Fischer won as white. This time, Evans and Tatai decide it's a draw. I imagine they looked at each other and said, "Fischer-Unzicker? Yes, let's try another ...
 
   Jun-27-04 Van Wely vs Morozevich, 1995 (replies)
 
grozny: A very nice win for Morozevich. After 33. ♔e2? there is that nice little combination with 33. ... ♘f5! which pretty much seals the game. The e pawn is pinned and if it takes the knight: 34. exf5 ♕xe3+ 35. ♔d1 ♕xe1+. I also liked the last move. The ...
 
   Jun-25-04 Janowski vs J Mieses, 1895 (replies)
 
grozny: <seemingly won pawn endgame> Yes, it does look won, doesn't it? In fact, I would have preferred 42 b5 rather than 43 g3 in order to head toward that pawn ending even sooner. When I ran this by Fritz, however, he liked it for a couple of seconds until some more calculating ...
 
   Feb-05-04 Stahlberg vs Alekhine, 1930 (replies)
 
grozny: Alekhine does it again. A very nice one-two punch in the making and Stahlberg decides to resign. Taking the rook loses his queen: 32. ♕xf3 ♘xf3 33. gxf3 and Black has a winning game. Trying to avoid the capture of the queen by going on the attack and capturing Black's ...
 
   Jan-30-04 J H Donner vs Keres, 1959 (replies)
 
grozny: I like this one. Donner resigned because of the incipient combination: 25. Bxf5 Rxg3+ 26. fxg3 d3+ winning the queen. Short and sweet. It was a decent contest until 24. Qe2??. Chessgames.com, this would be a good one for your daily tactical puzzle.
 
   Dec-30-03 Tal vs Averbakh, 1959 (replies)
 
grozny: Nothing too flashy here--just good, solid chess. If 49. ... Na8, White mops up with the extra material. On moves 35 & 36, as the a pawn was racing toward a8, pursued by the black knight, I felt like saying, "Run, rabbit, run!" :-)
