   Jan-17-19 B M Amos vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
jerseybob: I think black's last chance to stay in the game is 10..h6, and if 11.Nd5!?, hxg 12.Nxc7,Rb8 13.Nxg5,Rf8 with Bf6 and Kg7 to follow and black should hold. 15.e5! is the winner and Amos' technique is excellent.
   Jul-21-18 Najdorf vs Pelikan, 1968 (replies)
jerseybob: After offering the b-pawn with 13..b5, an offer Najdorf was probably wise to decline, why does black then protect that pawn with 14..a6? 14..Nc4 seems more in the Dragon spirit, though white also has good chances.
   Jul-13-18 Bisguier vs Bronstein, 1955
jerseybob: 7..Be7 has been recommended(by the British master Bellin) instead of Bronstein's 7..Qxg5. Not an easy move to find OTB though.
   Jun-29-18 Larry Evans vs R Weinstein, 1963
jerseybob: <SwitchingQuylthulg: On moves 34 and 35 White could have escaped with Rcxc2! 34.Rcxc2! Nxc2 35.Rd8+ Kh7 36.Qe8 Qc7+ 37.g3 and Black has to sacrifice his queen to stop mate.> Looks good. But after 37..Qxe8 38.QxQ,Nd4!? black may still hold the draw.
   Jun-29-18 R Weinstein vs W Schmidt, 1964
jerseybob: For the U.S. Student team a bad Olympiad, and for Weinstein, just about the end of his career. He's pictured in Chess Review playing this game, right before black's 41st move.
   May-14-18 Caruana vs Lenderman, 2018
jerseybob: <Caissanist: Caruana got the idea for 9.h4 from reading an article in New In Chess. Lenderman blamed his loss on the fact that he doesn't subscribe> Many thanks for the link to New in Chess; some great stuff there. But it still doesn't answer my question about this game: how
   May-01-18 Alekhine vs H Wolf, 1922
jerseybob: <sfm: 75.Ne3+ made it easier. How easy is it to win after 75.Kg1?> It might be difficult, but with 2 passers and the ability of the bishop to gain tempi, how can there not be a win?
   Apr-30-18 I Koenig vs Gruenfeld, 1922
jerseybob: Gruenfeld knew how to play the Grunfeld!
   Mar-17-18 Euwe vs Reshevsky, 1936
jerseybob: Euwe's first win over the adult Reshevsky. He beat young Sammy around 1921 or so in one of the prodigy's exhibitions, as black in a Lopez I believe.
   Feb-05-18 Kashdan vs Kotov, 1946 (replies)
jerseybob: Black plays as if he had the draw in the bag; the wholesale wood-chopping from moves 14-23 may have lulled him to sleep. After 24..Qc7? he possibly expected 25.QxQ?, but 25.Qc6! is a sudden dose of reality. I don't see a white win after 24..Bb7.
