   Jan-28-18 Spassky vs Tal, 1961 (replies)
razetime: Great pun for the day! One of those rare times when Tal misses a tactical destruction point. Very nice game.
   Jan-19-18 Svidler vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
razetime: This was a mad game. Svidler managed to find the drawing sequence just in time to prevent checkmate.
   Feb-22-17 Mecking vs Hort, 1970 (replies)
razetime: White had a slight edge over black at move 37, but the blunder made the win easier. 37..Qxa4? lost the game clearly. Sometimes snatching pawns may cause serious problems. Although Mecking scored 12.5/23, he was unable to qualify for the world championships due to losses against ...
   Feb-22-17 Kasimdzhanov vs Ponomariov, 2007 (replies)
razetime: I agree with <OhioChessFan>. Rxa7 is the best move. Other variations are slow wins or equal. But Ra1 is inaccurate. better was the game continuation e6 where you get your rook back, with a nice and open king.
   Feb-21-17 Alekhine vs L M Hines, 1929
razetime: 18.. Nd6? Was the calamity. Black's weak back rank is exploited by the world champion with 19. Qc7! and the rest is mostly forced. Suddenly, many of black's pieces are forced onto each other, and Alekhine ends the game with two whole passed pawns, to win the game.
   Feb-20-17 Lahno vs Kosteniuk, 2007 (replies)
razetime: Bxg7 Rxg7 Removing the bishop for queen check. Rest is easy: Qb8+ Kf7 Rxg7+ And the king is helplessly thrown into Kf6 Qe5# Rd8 loses material and loses the game for black. Giving way to Qe8 and a few exchanges makes white two whole rooks up.
   Feb-20-17 Svidler vs Carlsen, 2006 (replies)
razetime: Beautifully done game by Svidler. Rxe7!! was beautiful. A move that caused the utter destruction of Carlsen.
   Jan-24-17 M Ruderfer vs Stein, 1972 (replies)
razetime: The position was really hard to hold, but equal at 19. Rhe1. But Rg7?? allowed the beautiful Qxd6+!, and gave black a perfect time to resign.
   Jan-20-17 Wei Yi vs A Giri, 2017
razetime: Very interesting game, which underlined the style of both players.
   Jan-15-17 D Andreikin vs V Forsberg, 2016 (replies)
razetime: I found 25. c5! bxc5 26.Qa5+ Kd7 27. Qb5 Rc6 28. Ra3 Rc8 But miscalculated on 30. a4? Oh well.
