   Jul-13-19 Alekhine vs Euwe, 1937
 
storminnorman2010: It looks like Euwe was hoping for perpetual check so he could escape with at least a half point. But Alekhine would have none of it.
 
   Dec-03-17 Steinitz vs Zukertort, 1886
 
storminnorman2010: This is the latest of all the games I have seen on this site that there was a castling move.
 
   Oct-09-17 K Tjolsen vs S Marder, 2010 (replies)
 
storminnorman2010: Nice pun.
 
   May-08-17 Staunton vs Saint Amant, 1843
 
storminnorman2010: 30...Any Black move from the final position 31 Qxf8#!
 
   Apr-22-17 Euwe vs Boleslavsky, 1953 (replies)
 
storminnorman2010: Euwe's swan song in Candidates' Tournament play. Overall, it was very disappointing for the former World Champion.
 
   Apr-09-17 Smyslov vs Reshevsky, 1953 (replies)
 
storminnorman2010: After the 1948 FIDE WC Tournament, This was probably the closest that Reshevsky (or any American, for that matter) would come to playing in a World Chess Championship until Bobby Fischer came along. Of course, it didn't help that there was (possible) Soviet collusion ...
 
   Apr-02-17 Botvinnik vs Euwe, 1948
 
storminnorman2010: Poor Euwe! This tournament, along with the Zurich tournament in 1953, was his swan song in trying to reclaim the world chess championship.
 
   Apr-02-17 Stahlberg vs Reshevsky, 1953 (replies)
 
storminnorman2010: I had noticed the point made by Bronstein in his book that Reshevsky was much more aggressive when he played White than when he played Black.
 
   Mar-15-17 Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
 
storminnorman2010: The moves from Black's 41st move do not match what is in Bronstein's book. That one continues: 41...Nf6+ 42.Kf5 Ng8+ 43.Kg4 B:g5 44.K:g5 Rf7 45.Bh4 Rg6+ 46.Kh5 Rg7 47.Bg5 R:g5 48.Kh4 Nf6 49.Ng3 R:g3 50.Q:d6 Rg6 Qb8+ 51.Rg8 WHITE RESIGNS.
 
   Mar-14-17 Averbakh vs Stahlberg, 1953 (replies)
 
storminnorman2010: This was Stahlberg's second win of the tournament. He would not win another one until Round 27, ironically also against Averbakh.
