   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.
   Feb-05-18 Kotov vs Kashdan, 1946
jerseybob: According to a 1946 Chess Review annotation, 52..Kf5? throws away the win, and 52..Kf7 was correct.
   Jan-12-18 M Katetov vs Bronstein, 1946
jerseybob: Hard to see the idea behind 14.d5? Maybe white intended to follow up with an immediate Nd4, pressuring b5 and c6, and then noticed his bishop hung on g5. 14.axb5 looks best to me.
