   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)
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 ...
   Mar-22-17 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927
nummerzwei: After the 'automatic' 16...b6 Black can put up stiff resistance.
   Mar-19-17 O Nikolenko vs Antoshin, 1986
nummerzwei: <EmperorAtahualpa: What a weird game! I'm guessing this game was rapid or blitz because otherwise White couldn't miss 11.Nc7!> Neither 11.Nc7 is very clear: a) 11.Nbc7 Nc6 12.Nxa8? Qxd5 b) 11.Ndc7 a6 In both cases, the complications are likely continue for several ...
   Mar-16-17 Semmering/Baden (1937)
nummerzwei: Dress rehearsal for AVRO.
   Mar-10-17 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016
nummerzwei: 45...f4 is a strange move, leaving Black with no entry squares. Alekhine did better in a strikingly similar ending in Shipley / Sharp vs Alekhine, 1924 [DIAGRAM] 42...Be2! (0:1, 53)
   Feb-19-17 Alekhine vs Capablanca, 1927
nummerzwei: According to Alekhine, White can press for the win with 17. f3.
   Jan-22-17 Yates vs Capablanca, 1924
nummerzwei: Yates could have played much the same combination on move 20: 20.Nxg5 is both dead obvious and very strong, e.g. 20...Bxd1 (20...Qxg5 21.g4) 21.Bxh7+ Kh8 22.f4 The tournament book is completely silent on this! The whole thing's something of a mystery really. Certainly, Alekhine ...
   Jan-14-17 Alekhine vs Foltys, 1936
nummerzwei: Conceivably, Black missed that 11...c4 is met by 12.Bh7+, winning.
