   Dec-03-18 Skembris vs Polugaevsky, 1980 (replies)
tjipa: A wild game! The Greek underdog sacks a pawn, then an exchange against Polugaevsky and then makes a draw from a position of force! Nice meeting you, Mr. Skembris!
   Nov-25-18 Lanka vs Geller, 1992 (replies)
tjipa: A subtle strategic masterpiece by Lanka. Deserves to be added to his notable games.
   Nov-25-18 Zigurds Fridrikhovich Lanka (replies)
tjipa: Zigurds Lanka is a Latvian grandmaster, so it is absolutely not needed to add "Fridrikhovich" to his name - which is a formal Russian form of address, including father's name. Esp., because even Karpov and Kasparov are listed here just by their first name and not as Garry Kimovich or ...
   Feb-18-18 Ivars Alvils Dahlberg
tjipa: In Latvia, his homeland, his last name is spelled Dālbergs. Upon arrival in US, my guess is the long ā was ditched first due to its nonexistence in the English alphabet, then substituted with ah - to make the pronunciation resemble the original name. Also the Latvian ending ...
   Nov-13-17 Erik Karklins (replies)
tjipa: Oh, I just learned this legendary man has passed away 7 months ago. Here is a nice obituary:
   Nov-13-17 A Karklins vs Dlugy, 1986 (replies)
tjipa: Yo, a nice queen trap indeed! I wonder how Karklins is doing these days. I just googled out of curiosity and learned that his legendary father has recently passed away at the age of 102.
   Oct-23-17 T Kantans vs E Inarkiev, 2017 (replies)
tjipa: A blistering tactician this Toms Kantans is. I proudly remember being beaten by him in a rapid game some years ago. To beat somebody as Inarkiev like this deserves the highest possible accolades. Still, without engines, I do not see - why the hell couldnt the black just take the ...
   Sep-21-17 Ding Liren vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
tjipa: So, now they are lined up for the World cup final. Although I have always liked Aronian, I am kind of rooting for Ding Liren - because he is a kind of an outside guy in this in or near 2800 rated circle.
   Aug-29-17 Veresov vs Boleslavsky, 1940 (replies)
tjipa: A strange draw. In the final position, right at the point of adjournment, it seems Black is lost. What is he going to do after White picks up the pawn on e2 and then moves his knight to the outpost e6?
   Jan-08-17 Vija Rozlapa
tjipa: This legendary Latvian coach, the first chess teacher of Alexei Shirov, today turns 75! She still continues her work with children.
