soothsayer8: Moves 35-41: cue circus music ;)
 
   Apr-05-11 Petrosian vs Botvinnik, 1963 (replies)
 
soothsayer8: 36...Bc6 seems like such a bad move to me, why would black allow white to double his pawns like that? It became such a liability. I especially liked how white was able to use the doubled pawns as a blockade for his own purposes.

soothsayer8: A great testament of the power of the King. The only piece more powerful than it is the queen! This looked like such a boring GM draw as first.
 
   Mar-23-11 Botvinnik vs Tal, 1961 (replies)
 
soothsayer8: Solid sacrifice from Tal, good job by Tal recognizing the real worth of that pawn.
 
   Mar-22-11 Anderssen vs Kieseritzky, 1851 (replies)
 
soothsayer8: One word: BRUTAL
 
   Mar-15-11 Kramnik vs Topalov, 2006 (replies)
 
soothsayer8: Ah, the dubious "Chess Game Declined" Opening.
 
   Mar-08-11 Tal vs Botvinnik, 1960 (replies)
 
soothsayer8: There's nothing so formidable in chess as a strong pawn structure. By move 22, Tal looked pretty unstoppable with most of his pieces behind a kingside pawn storm, and all of Botvinnik's pieces tied up defending.
 
   Mar-07-11 Botvinnik vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
 
soothsayer8: Seems to me while looking at these games that Botvinnik was the better endgame player than Tal.
 
   Jan-21-11 Botvinnik vs Smyslov, 1954 (replies)
 
soothsayer8: It was win or go home for Smyslov and he didn't even TRY! I'm starting to buy this whole conspiracy theory surrounding Soviet Chess in this time period, this game was just unexplainable, and a shame, really.

soothsayer8: What was Smyslov thinking with 34...Qf6??
