   Jun-24-18 Steinitz vs Blackburne, 1869 (replies)
 
paul1959: A crude game unworthy of those two greats. Steinitz got the right idea with the h pawn push but 13 Bxd4 ( Bg5 was better) was hasty since 14 Qh6 did not work. Blackburne could have equalized by exchanging queens but his 14... Nb4 simply allowed his opponent to resume his plan.
 
   Jun-23-18 Tartakower vs G A Thomas, 1936
 
paul1959: There is a picture from that game in the current article on Reshevsky on the Europe-Echecs site. Sir George had the better game until he blundered with 36... Nf5?? (Qc7 was correct). 18... Nb4 19 d4 Nd5 would also have been very good for Black.
 
   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
