   Dec-16-10 Carlsen vs Short, 2010 (replies)
 
patzerboy: Quite a comeback in this tournament from an almost disastrous start to win it. Bravo!
 
   Dec-06-10 Kasparov vs Oxford United, 1993 (replies)
 
patzerboy: Subtitled "When footballers play chess."
 
   Dec-01-10 Z Ivanovic vs S E Meyer, 2000 (replies)
 
patzerboy: At last! A game I actually could relate to...as Black.
 
   Sep-11-10 Kotronias vs Grigoriants, 2009 (replies)
 
patzerboy: My grasshopper brain was clueless from two moves BEFORE the puzzle position.
 
   Jul-11-10 Spassky vs Portisch, 1977 (replies)
 
patzerboy: I love the recurring theme of kicking the hapless knight all over the queenside starting at move 26. Four times the knight comes under attack, eventually being driven to the edge of the board at move 31, as Spassky consolidates his grip on the center.
 
   Jan-25-09 A Ostapenko vs Yartsev, 1969 (replies)
 
patzerboy: What else does Ostapenko do for fun? Hunt bears with only a knife? Talk about living on the edge!
 
   Jan-18-09 Anand vs Macieja, 2000 (replies)
 
patzerboy: I don't see this as an "insane" difficulty puzzle. The decision to sacrifice the bishop for all of Black's Kingside pawns I see as a strategic and not a tactical decision (even if achieved by tactics). Seeing a clear winning line through to the end is not a requirement of this ...
 
   Dec-19-08 E Zemgalis vs W Kuppe, 1949 (replies)
 
patzerboy: It seems that Black's whole Queenside plan from 12...b4 to 18...dxc5 was ill-conceived. What has he accomplished? White has the open b-file, Black's Queenside pawns are all weak, and Black has fatally weak light squares on the Queenside. Once White starts hitting the weak pawns, ...
 
   Nov-15-08 Aronin vs Botvinnik, 1951 (replies)
 
patzerboy: Hilarious! Aronin gets in trouble early, and Botvinnik ties him in knots and keeps him that way. The White King's Knight NEVER MOVES the whole game! 41 moves! Might call this game: Beating a Dead Horse
 
   Nov-14-08 M Christoffel vs Botvinnik, 1946 (replies)
 
patzerboy: Amusing how Botvinnik tortures the poor White dark-square bishop with pawns over and over again, eventually forcing the bishop to sacrifice itself in the vain hope of winning Black's passed pawns. The blithe way in which he gives up both of the doubled g pawns, seemingly denuding ...
