   Jan-11-19 J Therien vs E Hoehn, 1949 (replies)
lunchwithgina: <SamAtoms1980> I like <Garry On My Wayward Run>, maybe a little obscure, but why not submit it? <An Englishman> Good suggestions--regarding your "Fortunate Son" proposal, I will look for a father-son game where the son wins....
   Jan-04-19 Nunn vs Vaganian, 1986
lunchwithgina: After 26...Kc7, white finishes with 27. Re5 Ne5 28. Be5 and the a-pawn queens. As black, I would not play this 4...Nc6 variation because of the e6 sacrifice. And 7...g6 invites an h4 attack. According to the opening explorer, white wins the position after 7...g6 62.5% of the ...
   Dec-19-18 E Reed Valenzuela vs J Salas Romo, 1945
lunchwithgina: Oof...what a rout. I think that the variation with 7...Nb4 is too difficult for OTB play, even if it is analytically playable.
   Oct-20-18 McShane vs A Muir, 2018
lunchwithgina: Some sort of forfeit? Maybe Muir's cell phone went off during play?
   Jun-30-18 Timman vs Browne, 1976
lunchwithgina: <mifralu> Thanks for posting this vintage photograph of the two rising young grandmasters. I remember thinking then (and now) that Timman would not have enough for the exchange after 26. Rf6, but it looks like he does....
   Jun-22-18 Kramnik vs W So, 2018 (replies)
lunchwithgina: The position after 22. Nb5 could make a good Wednesday or Thursday puzzle. I recognized the game crisis at 22. Nb5; alas, I failed to find 22...Qe2, even knowing there had to be a shot in this position.
   Jun-20-18 N Birnboim vs S Porat, 2004 (replies)
lunchwithgina: Hello is wrong with the transcription of this game score--starting with 22...Qe5, the moves become hallucinogenic.
   Jun-19-18 Vasilije Tomovic
lunchwithgina: Vasilije Tomović aka Vasily Tomovic (born 11 May 1906, died c. 1994) was a Montenegrin chess master. See wikipedia for a more complete biography.
   Jun-02-18 V Fedoseev vs Bologan, 2018
lunchwithgina: I suppose Bologan could not bring himself to play 12...Qd7, admitting that 11...Qe7 was a lemon. And after 12...b5 13. Nb5, the tactics flow from the superior position.
   May-31-18 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
lunchwithgina: I rather admired the little move 18. Qc4. black can't free up his Q-side without making concessions, and Aronian never really activated his Q-side pieces.
