stst: In today's Tan v Gunay, the final position looks all White, but a closer look simplifies to K+N v K, and this is quite a dead end leading to stalemate, or, the sole K just wander around. Hence 1/2 each.... What a ??

stst: <..16.Rg7+,Qxg7 17.e7+,Nxc4 should try 17.Qe8+ then only Qf8 will save then e7 dis+ etc still win, but slower yes

stst: <...the new genius ...become the world champion than AFTER. It requieres a very rare and particular fighting will, which only players like Alekhine and Kasparov may have possessed.> Good comment, showing some Socrates wisdom. Even with Capa's (I'd say) true genius, he succumbed

stst: One line: 26.Rce7+ Kd8 27.Red7+ Ke8 (if Kc8 Rc7+ takes N) 28.Rfe7+ Kf8 29.Rd8#
   Jun-14-17 J Corzo vs M Golmayo De La Torriente, 1896 (replies)
stst: Got to break through by R-sac, 22.Re7+ NxR (best) 23.Qxg7+ (the whole point) Ke8 is suicide (QxN#) so Ke6 and is exposed From here, if Nd4+ then the K can wander for long, so another sac could be made, with QxN+ forcing the K to go K-side and contain it, e.g. KxN, Rd5+ etc... K has

stst: Nice but tricky finish... Q-sac but not Monday!! 36.QxB+ hxQ (forced, nothing else helps, even Qg7 got crushed by QxQ#) 37.Rh8+ Kf7 (only sq.====> but watch out right here!!) 38.Ng5# ==> such a nice position just made for this configuration, the K has no more escape sq. IF ...

stst: An easy smothered Q: 5.Bxf7+ (A)KxB, 6.Ng5+ Ke8/f8, 7.Ne6 and Black's Q smothered. (B)Kf8 denying the sac. B, 6.Be6 Nf6 (venting e6), 7.Ng5...and next Q out to f3 then e5 to press the N.

stst: The game adopts another kind of rubber band horse attack... but not that pretty.
   Jun-10-17 Hort vs Portisch, 1973 (replies)
