   Oct-22-18 E Warren (replies)
okiesooner: Senator Warren went to a crowded restaurant one evening and asked for a table. The maitre d' said "I'm sorry, Senator, but I can't give you one." The Senator said "Why not"? The maitre d' answered "Because you don't have a reservation."
   Oct-04-17 Kashdan vs I A Horowitz, 1946 (replies)
okiesooner: After 23. Qd5 Bxb5 24. axb5 Rxa1 25. Rxa1 Qxb5?, White wins with 26. Ra8+ Kg7 27. Nf5+ Kg6 (if 27...Kh7?? 28. Qxf7#) 28. Nxe7+ Kg7 29. Rxh8. Here if 29...Kxh8? 30. Qxf7 is followed by 31. Qg8# or 31. Ng6#.
   Jul-28-17 Gligoric vs Pachman, 1958
okiesooner: Instead of 24...Kg7?, would Black draw with 24...Nxh3+? If 25. Kf1 Nf4 and Black has won a Pawn. If 25. gxh3 Rxd1 26. Rxd1 Bxa4 27. Qxa4 Qg3+ 28. Kh1 Qxh3+ 29. Kg1 Qg3+. If White tries to avoid the perpetual check by moving his King to f1, Black will be able to bring his Rook ...
   Jul-27-17 Gligoric vs A Matanovic, 1961
okiesooner: 16. Rb1 eliminates the threat of 16...Ba4 also. Here if 16. Rb1 Ba4 17. Qxa4 Qxc3 White can simply move his Bishop, or protect it with 18. Rd1, and remain ahead by a piece for a Pawn. Thus, there must be other reasons that White often chooses 16. a4.

okiesooner: A picture is sometimes worth a thousand words . . .
   Sep-03-16 Joel Benjamin vs G Lorscheid, 1984
okiesooner: The Black Knight is trapped in the center of the board.
   Jun-09-16 W So vs Romanishin, 2009
okiesooner: How about 41...Rxe4+?
   Dec-15-15 Beliavsky vs Karpov, 1973 (replies)
okiesooner: Could White have at least held a draw with 35. Rd2? Black can win the a-Pawn, but as long as the White Rook is on the second rank Black will be forced to exchange Rooks in order to win that Pawn. This would lead to an endgame with opposite-colored Bishops in which each side has ...
   Nov-24-15 Y Sakharov vs Nezhmetdinov, 1957 (replies)
okiesooner: After 31. h5+ Kxh5 32. Rg7 Black can stop immediate mate with 32...Ne3, which blocks the Bishop's diagonal. However, Black loses the Bishop after 34. Re1. He has two disconnected Pawns for the Bishop, as in the game itself after 34...fxe5, and will probably lose anyway although ...
   Jul-24-15 Kasparov vs Van der Wiel, 1988 (replies)
okiesooner: Writing in the New York Times at the time of this game, the late Robert Byrne wrote that 31...Ka8 32. Qc7 Bxe4+ 33. Ka2 "was of no use" because of the threat of 34. Rxa6#.
