   Jan-03-18 Ivanchuk vs Yusupov, 1991 (replies)
 
saintdufus: Yusupov's 28...Rg6!! reminds me of Spassky's 16th move in Spassky vs Bronstein, 1960 , 16.Nf7!!, letting the opponent take a whole rook *with check*.
 
   Dec-15-17 Shabalov vs S J Breckenridge, 2017
 
saintdufus: The startling 27.Bf7! seems to be based on the idea 27...Rf7 (27...Nf7 28.e6) 28.Rg5! Clever tactic from an imaginative attacking player.
 
   Dec-15-17 Kasparov vs Karjakin, 2017
 
saintdufus: <4... Qe7 wins on the spot.> Far from it. On the contrary, that move actually *improves* White's game, changing the evaluation from -0.85 to -0.50 (Stockfish).
 
   Dec-15-17 Elene Tsotsonava vs Dehankar Mrudul, 2016 (replies)
 
saintdufus: There is an obvious error in this score: 4.c3 is clearly not the move played, as it hangs the queen. My guess is that 4.f3 is correct.
 
   Dec-13-17 M Lange vs Anderssen, 1851
 
saintdufus: I wonder how Lange spotted the move 21.Bd4! Was it: "If I could deflect the queen somehow, there might be tactical possibilities around g6"... Or was it more like: "Okay, I've got a strong position, let's look for attacking moves. Bd4 hits the queen but loses a piece...if he ...
 
   Dec-08-17 H Westerinen vs G Timmerman, 1987 (replies)
 
saintdufus: Yeah...they definitely prefer slow games. ;)
 
   Dec-08-17 H Westerinen vs J Franzen, 1988
 
saintdufus: Yes, you are right: I saw my mistake afterward, but it was too late to delete the comment.
 
   Dec-08-17 M Damjanovic vs Fischer, 1967
 
saintdufus: <SpiritedReposte: Simply <44. ...d2> and white will need to sac knight for pawn...unless he doesn't mind a black queen showing up. The a-pawn drops shortly after and bada bing bada boom it's an endgame where black has an extra knight.> Not sure what you mean: after ...
 
   Nov-21-17 O Antze vs Saemisch, 1926
 
saintdufus: <Dr Winston OBoogie: 27..Rd7?? Has to be the worst move I've seen from a man who beat the WCC! It's the kinda move shredder plays on 1800 setting, it's atrocious.> Good thing Saemisch played 27...Ra7 instead.
 
   Nov-19-17 Chigorin vs I A Zybin, 1899
 
saintdufus: I'm guessing this is the real game, of which the "Sybil" game is an incomplete duplicate. (I wondered why that game ended when it did.) Even the name "Sybil" is suspect--probably an altered version of the real name, "Zybin". The other game should be deleted from the database.
