   Dec-22-17 Alekhine vs W Lamb, 1929 (replies)
jimx: I never expected to see a "castling into it" game by Alekhine.
   Nov-28-17 R Slade vs D Hooper, 1947 (replies)
jimx: I somehow knew that the dubious 8.Kh1 would be white's downfall, but I did not foresee how concisely!
   Apr-02-17 A Sokolov vs Salov, 1983 (replies)
jimx: Crafty found this forced mate in 8 after 28. Bg7 instead of Rg7. 28. Bg7 Qf5 29. Nf6+ Qxf6 30. Bxf6 Re8 31. Qe2 Nd3+ 32. cxd3 Rc8+ 33. Kd2 Rc2+ 34. Kxc2 Rxh2 35. Re8+ Kf7 36. Qe7# 28. Rg7 was still probably the better move though, since it led to black resigning in 2 moves :)
   Jan-03-17 T Mauwa vs R Cecchetti, 1996 (replies)
jimx: As mig55 said, move 26.Qxf6 should be the real end of the game. It is kind of absurd to discuss the tactics of what would or could have won the game on move 34 after the stupefying blunders of 25...Qf6 and 26.Qd2.
   Nov-13-16 Carlsen vs S Ernst, 2004 (replies)
jimx: This is the only vertical epaulette mate I've ever seen. It's something I would've expected to see in a late 19th century game, not 21st.
   Sep-26-16 M Pitz vs S Stark, 2009 (replies)
jimx: Black's opening was so terrible I don't think it's fair to say that anyone should get zero points if they didn't see the two move mate. I didn't see it, and it still felt like I was kicking a cripple on the ground for finding a mate in three. This game is doubly tragic because it seems
   Aug-19-16 Rubinstein vs Gruenfeld, 1929 (replies)
jimx: What an awesomely Gruelling game.

jimx: After seeing the above painting I realised that I've played the same opening many times before, not even realising that it was already called the "Napoleon opening" or "The Emperor's opening". I cannot remember the win/loss/draw percentages for black or white, but I do remember that I ...
   Aug-16-14 Shirov vs D Reinderman, 1999 (replies)
jimx: For such an "easy" Saturday puzzle, everyone (including Shirov) seems to have missed 34.Nf6! Crafty has a forced mate in 9 moves with either 34..e5 or 34..Nxf6 in response: 34. Nf6 e5 35. Qh7+ Ke6 36. Nxd7 Bb7 37. Nxb8 Be7 38. Qxg6+ Nf6 39. Bxf6 Bc5+ 40. Rxc5 Kd6 41. Be7+ Kxe7 42. Rc7+
   Dec-23-13 Butler vs G W Baynes, 1891 (replies)
jimx: So as I meant to type at the beginning of my previous comment, I have typed up this game's comments (with updated notation) left in the article linked by thomastonk.
