   Nov-13-18 Tseshkovsky vs Taimanov, 1999
sakredkow: Tseshkovsky was in on two of the only three (!) decisive results in this tournament. Thatís 42 out of 45 games drawn. This draw too shows Tsesh came to play even if every one else was content to stand around and shoot the bull with stories about Petrosian. Love the rook lift 19. ...
   Nov-11-18 Nimzo-Indian (E41)
sakredkow: Seems like variations where black responds to 4. Nf3 or 4. e3 (Bronstein var) have fallen out of favor. That's a fairly recent development if I'm not mistaken.
   Nov-10-18 Botvinnik vs Smyslov, 1948
sakredkow: Both players content to enter into Black's exchange sac which seems practically forced after 31. Nd2. The R+R vs R+B ending is a nice model.
   Nov-06-18 Tal vs G Kuzmin, 1977
sakredkow: Doesn't 24. Rc5 win a pawn? But Tal is not about winning material, he's about losing material and winning the game. Great game esp for Chigorin club players, of whom there are still a few of us left.
   Nov-05-18 Chandler vs Short, 1981
sakredkow: Killer knight sacrifice by Chandler. I suppose the outcome wasn't too much in doubt even after Short declined it but I thought this was a very instructive game move by move, from start to finish.
   Nov-05-18 Capablanca vs Marshall, 1909 (replies)
sakredkow: It's a nice pretty little finish anyway.
   Nov-04-18 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1959 (replies)
sakredkow: All those fireworks in a new line just sputtering out into a nothing draw. Since it seems results haven't been very great for Black with 9...b6. Not much better with 9...a6. Where's the best place for Black to back out of this line?
   Nov-03-18 Carlsen vs I A Abusdal, 2003 (replies)
sakredkow: There are only four games by Ivar Abusdal in cg collection, all are vs Carlsen! And he got a draw in one of them. I guess your chess legacy could be worse.
   Oct-21-18 Svidler vs B Samhouri, 2014
sakredkow: <12.Nxd5! Very alert.> One of the reasons I like playing through many of these GM vs Very Much Lower Rated Players games. I get a chance to see combinations - and hopefully learn from them - that I might not in more balanced match-ups. This one is pretty.
   Oct-18-18 R Edouard vs Degraeve, 2015
sakredkow: Black controls the a1-h8 diagonal with his DSB and Q, completely frustrating white's attempts to create a mate. White makes a couple of costly mistakes and then finally runs out of luck with the Bishop block 39...Bd7. Lights out.
