   Sep-16-18 Najdorf vs Tal, 1970 (replies)
sakredkow: <Spassky then suggested the right maneuver for White. A man jumped up behind them, leaped to Spassky and kissed him enthusiastically. The thankful onlooker, of course, was Najdorf.> That doesn't sound true at all. It sounds like a story someone told just to stick it to ...
   Sep-12-18 H Bastian vs Karpov, 1983 (replies)
sakredkow: This was a real fun game to play over. Once 17...e5 was played the fireworks started. Instructive tactics. None of that Karpovian boa constrictor-like slow strangulation.
   Sep-11-18 Valeri Yandemirov
sakredkow: He was too young for that nonsense. Here's another game from the 1999 Russia Cup with a cool sacrifice. Black makes one small mistake and the game explodes in his face. [Event "RUS-Cup10"] [Site "Tomsk"] [Date "1997.07.28"] [Round "7"] [White "Yandemirov, Valeri"] ...
   Aug-29-18 Larsen vs Portisch, 1976 (replies)
sakredkow: Patient endgame by Larsen. Instructive king walk to the queenside relegating black's rook to the role of bystander. Cue Lou Reed: Take a walk on the queenside doo da doo doo.
   Aug-28-18 Mamedyarov vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
sakredkow: <Tripled pawns! That's always fun to see.> These babies are from round six: [DIAGRAM] Nakamura vs Aronian, 2018
   Aug-28-18 Karpov vs Ivanchuk, 1996
sakredkow: It's a shame the video is apparently no longer available.
   Aug-25-18 Mamedyarov vs Aronian, 2018
sakredkow: Boys, boys. Take 'er easy. Someone's liable to get hurt.
   Aug-24-18 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2018 (replies)
sakredkow: <All he does is cheese wins by relying on the opponents tiredness and boredom instead of outplaying them.> If that's what he's doing it seems like he's got more confidence and energy than a lot of his opponents to be able to do that. That is outplaying them.
   Aug-18-18 Mikhail Botvinnik (replies)
sakredkow: That's a pretty slim bio for one of the greatest.
   Aug-14-18 Vienna (1873)
sakredkow: <Big Pawn> Maybe at the time it wasn't so apparent, perhaps in retrospect Steinitz's style was seen to be revolutionary. Don't forget also that Steinitz's "sixteen wins here would contribute to an overall twenty-five game winning streak in professional competition, a record ...
