   Apr-16-18 D Sadzikowski vs A Mista, 2017 (replies)
sakredkow: First noticed Black checkmates next move, so whatever white does it has to disrupt that. Then it was easy to find the checkmate after seeing the only forcing move is Qxf8+. It was very fast to solve but I'm not sure better players have to go through a "process" or if they just see
   Apr-12-18 Larsen vs Ulf Andersson, 1982 (replies)
sakredkow: 4...d5 is kind of an oddball opening to begin with. I guess Larsen played 6. d4 because he didn't want to give up a lot of real estate with 6. d3 d5, but after 6. d4 black's emerging IQP is a real hot shot - he's going places. And then why 8. Qd3? Andersson must have been thinking
   Apr-07-18 Bologan vs Adams, 1994
sakredkow: That's quite the knight's tour starting with 12...Nd7.
   Mar-28-18 Korchnoi - Geller Candidates Quarterfinal (1971) (replies)
sakredkow: For no particular reason I wonder where in Moscow this match was played?
   Mar-28-18 Geller vs Korchnoi, 1971
sakredkow: This is a nice, patient king walk by Geller. What a missed opportunity against one of the greatest.
   Mar-28-18 Korchnoi vs Geller, 1971
sakredkow: There's an interesting line with 32...Bf6 33. Nxf6+ Rxf6 34. Be4 Qb3 35. Bd3 and if 35...Bxc4 36. Qh6!
   Mar-27-18 Tal vs Robert E Byrne, 1976
sakredkow: The position after 15. h4 has recurred in a handful of games since, including a couple of 2400+. It looks playable for either side, just not with 15...hxg5?
   Mar-26-18 Kramnik vs Piket, 1995
sakredkow: I came across this game while doing research on the Catalan. Mateo’s note above is helpful as is the excerpt from Kramnik’s book supplied by LoveThatJoker covering the thrilling conclusion. Kramnik (7.0) came in clear first over Karpov (6.5), Ivanchuk(5.0) and Leko (5.0) in this ...
   Mar-11-18 Keres vs Smyslov, 1953 (replies)
sakredkow: Grischuk asked if he remembers a "famous Steinitz game with a rook manouevre". His response: "No, but I remember a really famous game with Keres-Smyslov in Candidates 1953. White put rooks on h3 and h5, took on h7 - and lost." Tweet from Tarjei Svenson following Grischuk-So game ...
   Jan-25-18 Wang Hao vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2011
sakredkow: 18...Ra8: "Go ahead. I dare you!"
