   Oct-14-17 Kotov vs K Plater, 1947
kereru: Don't see how White makes any progress if Black plays 45...Kd8 and 46...Ke7.
   Oct-11-17 Riumin vs S Belavenets, 1934
kereru: Interesting that Kotov misreported both the continuation and the result of the game. He says "after 27.Qg4 h5 28.Qd1 h4 White had to resign." Well, Black didn't play 28...h4, but 28...Bxe5 is not a mistake. 31...Rd8 is fairly obvious and winning, but after 31...g6? White escaped with
   Sep-16-17 Tal vs Lutikov, 1964
kereru: Can't even imagine the mentality of someone who would play 16.Rhe1!! In awe.
   Jul-26-17 Hirschfeld vs S Urusov, 1866
kereru: Found this piece in the Illustrated London News, June 23 1865, page 619. "The remainder of the game, which Mr. Hirschfeld won, was not recorded". So why did they even bother to publish these moves?
   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.
