   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.
   Feb-05-17 Yifan Hou (replies)
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
   Jan-24-17 Biographer Bistro (replies)
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 ? I think he would be very interested. Bernstein later managed the Stuyvesant Chess Club
