   Oct-13-18 Dlugy vs de Firmian, 1988
marcusantoinerome: According to the October 1988 issue of Chess Life, this was a last round encounter that determined the winner, and $25,000! DeFirmian was leading by 1/2 point, so this was the deciding game. Dlugy won the game and the tournament, winning $25,000. DeFirmian tied for second ...
   Feb-01-18 F Kuijpers vs I Saren, 1976
marcusantoinerome: In the Feb 1977 Chess Life & Review, Bill Goichberg says the game lasted 14.5 hours! And Saren was nonchalant: "Not so long - 111 moves and 14.5 hours. My record game was 159 moves long, in a recent Finnish Championship."
   Nov-10-16 V Vepkhvishvili vs A Berdzenishvili, 1981 (replies)
marcusantoinerome: 28. Kg4 seems suspect to me. Walking into the King-Rook fork. The only way out is 28. Rf7 Rxf7 29. gxf7+ Kxf7, but with White's c-pawn about to fall, I don't see much hope for White in the Q v 2B+N ending.
   Aug-15-12 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1981 (replies)
marcusantoinerome: It's true that on move 22 Black has an equalizing plan: exchange both rooks. But there's a move order question. In the Feb 1982 issue of Chess Life (page 23), Lev Alburt and Jonathan Tisdall analyze this game and give the following analysis: "22. b3 f6 A dubious move, ...
   Jun-27-12 Karsten Larsen vs M Arnold, 2012
marcusantoinerome: 65. Rg7 also works and leaves Black in zugzwang. The threat is Rg8: a) 65... Kc8 66. Rg8 Rxf7 67. Nxd6+ b) 65... Be7 66. Bxc7 Kxc7 67. Nxe7 Kd7 68. Ng6 c) 65... Na8 66. Bxd8 Rxd8 67. f8=Q+ d) 65... Rh8 66. Rg8 Rh2+ 67. Kc3 and there are no more checks.
   Aug-13-10 Lutikov vs Taimanov, 1969 (replies)
marcusantoinerome: <erasmus> Yes, it should be 35. Re1, not Ra1. It is that way in Cafferty and Taimanov's "The Soviet Championships" page 149.
   May-09-06 Bronstein vs L Shamkovich, 1961 (replies)
marcusantoinerome: <Tariqov> is correct. 38.g6 forces mate in 6. In the game, Shamkovich played the weaker 39...Rb3+ which also allows mate, but he should have played 39...Re2 40.Rxe2 Nc7 41.Re7 Kg8 42.Rxc7 Kf8 and Black escapes the mate. Of course, Black is lost (a rook down), but if ...
   Apr-29-06 Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997 (replies)
marcusantoinerome: Anyone who wants a slightly different (and pragmatic) view of the inherehent "cheating" in human-computer chess contests should read Patrick Wolff's article on this match in New In Chess 1997/3. He asks the question, What constitutes a "fair" match? (i.e., how do you ...
   Aug-02-05 Nunn vs Portisch, 1988 (replies)
marcusantoinerome: Oops! There seems to be a problem with the game Burn vs Teichmann, 1895 It's supposed to be a Semi-Slav (D46), and here is the score that I have from my ChessBase Big Datababse: [Event "Hastings"] [Site "Hastings"] [Date "1895.??.??"] [Round "19"] [White ...
   Mar-22-05 Alekhine vs Euwe, 1935 (replies)
marcusantoinerome: Zenchess and drunkenknight: I've looked at several games that continue 8...Rg6, and I found that the plan for White is usually Qd2, Bb2, 0-0-0, and Ne2-f4. So this suggests to me that castling short is not such a good idea because White's queenside pawns are so weak. When ...
