   Mar-04-17 Reshevsky vs Vaganian, 1976 (replies)
 
kereru: Funny thing is Reshevsky didn't normally play 1.e4. Knowing that Vaganian was a French addict he obviously prepared this Kf2-g3 stuff... and he got slaughtered. By the way White is ok after 14.h3, giving the king an escape route.
 
   Mar-04-17 Menchik vs Graf-Stevenson, 1939
 
kereru: Alekhine's notes are reproduced in "107 Great Chess Battles" (edited by Edward Winter, 1980). Alekhine misses what the engines spot quickly - that on moves 54 and 55 ... Qh4! wins quickly. His analysis of the "3 stupidest moves" is mostly correct, but he omits to mention that ...
 
   Feb-23-17 Ivkov vs Judit Polgar, 1994
 
kereru: Unusual forking pattern with 10...Qg5, easy to miss.

kereru: I thought I was agreeing with you? lol
 
   Feb-05-17 D Fridman vs A Zatonskih, 2017
 
kereru: They played each other before, somehow the marriage survived. D Fridman vs A Zatonskih, 2010
 
   Feb-05-17 Spassky vs J Penrose, 1969 (replies)
 
kereru: My guess is Spassky didn't calculate 37.Bxc5 to the end, he simply assessed that the position after 38.Qxe5 was almost certainly winning due to the huge space advantage and passed pawns.
 
   Feb-01-17 Jansa vs Pribyl, 1982
 
kereru: There's a nice combination hidden in the notes, if 22...g6 23.Rd8+! Bxd8 24.Ncd6 1-0

kereru: @hemy it is not well known that Jacob Bernstein was born in Lithuania. Would you consider sending a scan of the article from the 1923 "Lietuvos Zinios" to Edward Winter at http://chesshistory.com ? I think he would be very interested. Bernstein later managed the Stuyvesant Chess Club
 
   Jan-24-17 W So vs R Rapport, 2017
 
kereru: Give the engine long enough and it starts to prefer 33...Rd2
 
   Jan-24-17 David Patrick
 
kereru: Anyone know this guy? Murray Chandler used to write about him in his chess column in the 70s, apparently he was a hippy who never wore shoes and lived for a time in a cave on the Canary Islands. His win against O'Connor is impressive anyway even if the opponent isn't very strong.
