   Nov-06-18 Cherepkov vs Averbakh, 1960
syracrophy: <perfidious> Agreed in part. The parameter for the Sunday-type of difficulty would be the full continuation crowned with 25.♕g5! At least <22.?> would be good for a Friday snack.
   Aug-03-18 Carlos Torre vs Maroczy, 1926 (replies)
syracrophy: <Tabanus> That must be from a skittles game or analysis since Torre is playing Black and there's no clock. Pretty sure it's from the same event 'cause it's the only time they met on tournament.
   Jul-18-18 Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
syracrophy: Would've been great to have the thinking time of the ♕xh3 jolt or of the rest of the continuation. One of those small data for the anecdote.
   Jan-24-18 D B Gurevich vs E Legaspi, 1993
syracrophy: Maybe Black saw the apparently decisive continuation 36...♖f7 37.c7 ♖xc7 <37...♖f8 38.a7+-> 38.♗b7 but missed the simple 38...♖c2! 39.a7 ♖xf2+ 40.♔h3 ♖a2 and after 41.a8♕ ♖xa8 42.♗xa8 ⩱. Black is up a ...
   Jan-10-18 Veselin Topalov (replies)
syracrophy: I second <cplyakap> remark on the Topalov's impressive peak on the early 2000's and his overall career. In fact, as an elite player he's at the risk of becoming one of the most underrated for the fact that he couldn't make it to the Classical title.
   Dec-07-17 L Butkiewicz vs M Turov, 2017
syracrophy: White gets mated-in-8 (22 ply): 87.g5+ ♔d3 88.♖e4 ♔xe4 89.g8=♕ e2+ 90.♔e1 ♖g1+ 91.♔d2 e1=♕+ 92.♔c2 ♕b1+ 93.♔c3 ♖c1+ 94.♔d2 ♖c2# Variation by Stockfish, on the ENGINE option you have at hand under ...
   Nov-05-17 J Bai vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
syracrophy: <luzhin> <... But the most beautiful mate is 33.Kh4 Kg8+ 34.Nxh8 Bg5++. Stunning.> Precision of a clockwork! On this varition two pieces separate the Black ♔ of the ♕, so, 33...♔g8+ ▢; then, 34.♘xh8 unprotects g5 and there it is mate. ...
   Aug-12-17 P Dukaczewski vs A Zaibi, 2014
syracrophy: [DIAGRAM] 29.c3!! [DIAGRAM] 38.♗c6! The other most impressive fact of this game (apart from the game itself) is - hold tight to your seats-: IM Dukaczewski is blind - the Ray Charles of polish chess.
   Aug-12-17 Piotr Dukaczewski
syracrophy: In a few words the following fest for the Sicilian bounty hunters: both Kings on the run, a promoted Queen and a brutal liquidation! A delight of play by the blind master: Dukaczewski, Piotr (2288) vs Zaibi, Amir (2297) 41st Olympiad Open 2014, 2014-08-08 1. e4 c5 2. ...
   Aug-10-17 Marcel Sisniega
syracrophy: Marcel Sisniega, considered the greatest Mexican player after Carlos Torre, took everyone by surprise by winning the National title at the age of 15. In 1976, aged 16, he earned his second title with an "almost" Fischer sweeping: 10-. The following brilliancy, highly praised by
