   Dec-22-18 Judit Polgar vs Anand, 2005 (replies)
nummerzwei: <SpiritedReposte: Masterful play. Karpov/Capa-like.> Also Rubinstein. This game, discussed by Vukovic in 'The Art of Attack in Chess', comes to mind: P F Johner vs Rubinstein, 1922 [DIAGRAM] Against passive play, White quickly develops an attack with 12.Rdg1, 13.g4, 14.h4 ...
   Dec-13-18 Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967
nummerzwei: In essence, Fischer's combination was already featured in 'The Art of Attack in Chess': [DIAGRAM] Educational Example Vladimir Vukovic, 1961 Play proceeds 1...b5 2.Qd2 Qe8 3.Re3 Qf8 4.Rh3 a5 5.h5 b4 6.g3 a4 7.a3 bxc3 8.bxc3 [DIAGRAM] Now going for the a-pawn with 8...Rab8 ...
   Nov-12-18 Lilienthal vs Nezhmetdinov, 1954
nummerzwei: Black comes out two pieces up after 32.Ng3+ Rxg3+ 33.fxg3 Bd4+ 34.Qxd4 Ne2+.
   Oct-17-18 Wei Yi vs J Stocek, 2018
nummerzwei: 16.Ne1!? with the idea of playing Ng2, Ne3, Nd5.
   Oct-01-18 D G Fridman vs S Halkias, 2009
nummerzwei: 14.Qxb7 is a novelty that blows a hole in 9...d4. I was quite reminded of the game G Meier vs R Pruijssers, 2010 in that respect. Luckily, my own game (with Black) continued 17.Rxe7? Bxg2 18.Kxg2 Qd5+ 19.Kg1 Nxe7 20.Qxe7 Rfe8 21.Qd6 Qxa2 and Black is better.
   Aug-19-18 Vogt vs Ulf Andersson, 1975
nummerzwei: In his book 'Simple Chess', Michael Stean recommends 31...Nxf4 32.Nxf4 Rc1+ 33.Kh2 Be5 34.Bd2 Rd1? as an easier win: [DIAGRAM] Here 35.g3 hxg3+ 36.Kg2 refutes. Black should play 34...Rf1, but this is not necessarily better than the sequence in the game.
   Jul-29-18 Keene vs E Mortensen, 1983
nummerzwei: <beatgiant> Here one needs to see 44...Rh7 45.Rh1! Rg7/Rf7 46.Rh6 threatening 47.Re6#.
   Jul-15-18 Lapshun vs Paschall, 2003
nummerzwei: <SADDAM: i wonder if 17.b5 is better than the the played a4. With idea to block off the queenside completely and play on the kingside where black has some advantage. Also c6 wouldnt become a target as it did in the game.> 17...b5 18.a4 opening the queenside.
   Jul-10-18 R Praggnanandhaa vs W So, 2018 (replies)
nummerzwei: 48.f4 could be tried.
   Jul-02-18 Spassky vs Petrosian, 1969 (replies)
nummerzwei: In a recent online game, my opponent repeated Spassky's unfavourable opening setup. He only varied with 12.Bd2, by which time White is already slightly worse: [DIAGRAM] In response, I decided to occupy the c4-square: 12...b5 13.Rc1 (13.a4 c6 14.axb5 cxb5 is similar) ...Nb6 14.Be1
