   May-30-18 V Mikenas vs Smyslov, 1944
 
tigreton: It's also important that the black king has some roads to invade White's position through the dark squares, the knight being unable to cover all of them.
 
   May-23-18 Botvinnik vs Smyslov, 1943 (replies)
 
tigreton: About the endgame, I must desagree. In pure Capablanca style, Botvinnik doesn't actually win the ending, but he reaches a won one. That's to say, his merit is to control and simplify the middlegame in a way that assures him an easily winable endgame, with a lot of advantages, ...
 
   May-09-18 Smyslov vs Kotov, 1943
 
tigreton: Poor black king, he never found a moment of rest, after such long journey.
 
   May-08-18 Tal vs Psakhis, 1982 (replies)
 
tigreton: What a tactical vision! It feels like not even the smallest detail could escape the eye of the great Tal.
 
   May-07-18 Spassky vs Lutikov, 1979
 
tigreton: Amazing! Spassky's play flows naturally. He takes firm control of the light squares in the centre (d5, e4, c4, f5), protects his only weak point (c2) with R1d2, and after 31. Qd1 his five pieces (excuse the king, please) are targeting the doomed d6 pawn. 27. Ba3 is an instructive ...
 
   May-07-18 Chiburdanidze vs A Rodriguez Cespedes, 1979
 
tigreton: Despite Black's great resistance, White finally manages to gain control of the a2-g8 diagonal, which leads to mate. The queen manouevre to c4-e4-c4-h4-c4 is a demonstration of force , and also the struggle for the d5 square, first vacating it with d6, and later through Bg2 and Nd5.
 
   May-07-18 P Van der Sterren vs Van der Wiel, 1986 (replies)
 
tigreton: 20 ... b5 prepares the field for the tactics, and after that follows one shot after another. I find this sequence really hard to spot, specially 22 ... Rd5. This move delays the real double attack with Bd5, in order to avoid Rxd5.
 
   May-05-18 Spassky vs Averbakh, 1963
 
tigreton: What a game! Spassky at his best, showing both strategic and tactic skills. 25. Ne2! transfers the knight to c3, from where it will firmly blockade both weak pawns on d6 and c4, letting free the pressure of the major pieces along the d-file. 53. g6! and 54. Nxf6! decide through the
 
   May-05-18 Hecht vs G Forintos, 1974
 
tigreton: 12 d4 is a nice move. At first sight it makes no sense to free Black from his doubled c-pawns, and to open lines when Black has the pair of bishops. But White is ahead in development, his knights have strongpoints to jump on, and the course of the game reveals the deep ...
 
   May-04-18 Short vs Vaganian, 1985
 
tigreton: 16 ... f4! is a great move, opening the diagonal for the bishop and weakening white kingside. 18 ... Ng6 would have won on the spot.
