paul1959: <Eggman> 35..Qxa3 36 Nxh7 Nxh7 37 Rg7+ Kf8 38 Rxh7 Kg8 39 Rhg7+ Kf8 40 Rgd7 Ke8 41 Rh7 wins If 40 ... Kh8 instead, Rge7! wins the queen
   Aug-11-17 Spassky vs Keres, 1961 (replies)
paul1959: Those were Spassky's dark years when he missed two complete WC cycles. 34 Qxc7 seems bad as it exchanges a weak pawn for the important one at f2. 34. Re5 looks much better: Black has to prevent Qc4+ and on all continuations , White can either get a rook ending with a pawn up or the
   Dec-10-16 Bronstein vs Keres, 1956 (replies)
paul1959: Keres gave his side of the story on several pages of 'The art of the middle game'. Here are the highlights: Bronstein sealed the strong 41-Rc6 but took 35 minutes to do so. Black only chance was to play unexpected moves and push white further into time trouble. 41- ... Rb8. This ...
   Dec-10-16 Karpov vs Huebner, 1979
paul1959: paul1959: According to the tournament book by Gligoric, Karpov still had 30 minutes at move 39 to Huebner 3. It seems that everyone at the time missed Qe3, giving 40-Rxg6 instead. This should also win but Qe3 is much better of course.
   Mar-09-16 Tringov vs N Spiridonov, 1973
paul1959: <Delboy> In your line 30...Qh5 looks very good with the threat of Qe2 or Rg8. Even if White is not mated, one of the pieces on the b file is likely to fall.
   Feb-27-16 G Barcza vs Tal, 1963
paul1959: Looks like White had a chance on the 22nd move: 22 Nd2 Rd3 23 Kf2 e3+ 24 Ke2 exd2 25 Bxd2 Rxd2 26 Kxd2 With material about equal, White`s position looks solid, his King is in the center, he has files for his rook and a potential passed d pawn. On other 22nd moves by ...
   Oct-15-15 Lasker vs Schlechter, 1910 (replies)
paul1959: Capa`s notes were probably written 'live' during the match for a newspaper which explains inconsistencies and errors noted here and on other games.

paul1959: if 51 c5 Rg3 and Re3#
   Jul-27-15 B De Greiff vs F Olafsson, 1958 (replies)
paul1959: White missed 40 Rh8 Qg4 41 Qh2 Kf5 42 Qh7+ Ke6 43 Rd5 with the mating treath of Rh8-d8-d6. After the weak 40 Rd6 Olafsson himself mounts an attack which gives him the last Candidate spot.
   Jul-10-15 J Mieses vs Rubinstein, 1905
paul1959: White is toast at that point anyway as Black is about to simplify and then win the exchange since the rook is trapped at a4. Curiously in my old ECO, Keres ignores Rubinstein's 6... d5 idea and gives instead 6...Nf6 7 Nf3 Nd5?! from an 1889 game between two obscure players.
