   Aug-10-17 Geller vs Larsen, 1967
nummerzwei: <zydeco> No way. An outside passed pawn is not even a thing in rook endings.
   Aug-10-17 Timman vs J Bjerre, 2017
nummerzwei: 21...Nf6 preserves the piece with two pawns for the exchange. However, White seems to be better anyway.
   Jun-29-17 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1990
nummerzwei: <acirce: About this game: 15...a6 was a mistake that should have been answered 16. Bxc6 Bxc6 17. Rhe1 Bxe4 18. Rxe4 Nd6 19. Re2 intending Nd4-e6 according to Jangjava's book on the Petrov. 15...Nd6 is given as the best move with equality. 8...Nf5 does look like it gives White ...
   Jun-08-17 Smyslov vs Euwe, 1948
nummerzwei: In his analysis in the tournament book, Euwe serves up a flawed finale: 'Black resigns since 70...Bc6 (to meet 71.e7+ Ke8 72.g7) costs the piece after 71.g7+ Kg8 42.Se7+.' White should play something like 42.Kf6 Kh7 43.Nh6 with mate in three, of course. After 42.Ne7+?? Kxg7 ...
   Jun-03-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
nummerzwei: In his comments, Gligoric stresses the importance of manoeuvring the knight to c6, where it blocks White's rooks from invading via the c-file. The only way to break through this barrier is to play b4-b5 (e.g. 42.Rb2), but this leads to an exchange of the queenside pawns, and thus
   May-31-17 Salomon Flohr
nummerzwei: <A shortage of creative energy has always inhibited Flohr from crowning his career.> Lodewijk Prins
   May-26-17 Kasparov vs Spassky, 1989
nummerzwei: In the line 4.Nf3 Nbd7 5.cxd5 exd5 6.Bg5 Be7 7.e3 c6 8.Qc2 Nh5 9.Bxe7 Qxe7 Black succeeds in throwing a spanner in White's works, meeting 10.Bd3 with 10...Nf4. In fact I've played this myself with both colours. On the other hand, ...Nh5 seems to have less point when White can ...
   May-20-17 B Kostic vs Capablanca, 1919
nummerzwei: A lesser known Capablanca win in the spirit of Janowski vs Capablanca, 1916 .
   May-17-17 World Junior Championship (1957) (replies)
nummerzwei: It's curious that most participants here went on to play at amateur level. Both earlier and later World Juniors have been much stronger.
   May-13-17 Benko vs F Olafsson, 1963
nummerzwei: I'm currently reading Pachmann's 'Entscheidungspartien' which has also appeared in English, clumsily titled 'Decisive Games in Chess History'. It is a book with an interesting premise, but also, frequently, flawed analytically. Let's take a look at what Pachmann has to say about ...
