   May-11-18 Lombardy vs J Sherwin, 1958
paul1959: On the 18th and 19th move, Black could have played Bxg2 apparently forcing a perpetual. Obviously Lombardy must have missed a turn somewhere.
   Apr-13-18 F Olafsson vs C H Alexander, 1957
paul1959: Olafsson was one of the strongest players of the late 50's. He was the great adversary of that other Viking Bent Larsen. In their 25 first games, only 3 were drawn!
   Apr-13-18 M Stolberg vs Botvinnik, 1940
paul1959: <SpaceRunner> Interesting comment. I am quite sure that Botvinnik saw 15 ... Bxh3 but probably rejected it because of 16 Nxd5 as in <whiteshark> first variation. It looks like a bad pawn exchange until you find that White loses d4.It is to be noted that while Lipnitsky ...
   Mar-28-18 Yusupov vs V Tukmakov, 1983
paul1959: Stockfish disagrees with the GMs at this point of the game. It thinks that after 18 Be3 White has a small advantage. It does not like 18...b6 either (Nc6 is given as equal). It seems Yusupov should have played 19 Rfe1 with a big advantage as Black has problems completing its ...
   Feb-12-18 Blackburne vs Steinitz, 1876
paul1959: <ColdSong> Critical position for sure. This was Blackburne last chance for an advantage with 30 Qe6+ Kb7 31 Rxd6 cxd6 32 Rxd6 when Black has to give up its Queen for the Rook. After 30 R5d3 the game was equal until Blackburne blundered his a-pawn
   Feb-06-18 Kholmov vs Hort, 1967
paul1959: Hort also probably thought he had a dangerous attack and misjugded 36... Nb3+ 37 RxN! Stockfish gives 36...Rxf2! with about an equal game.
   Oct-23-17 E Lobron vs Timman, 1992 (replies)
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.
