   Apr-17-14 M Aaron vs Fischer, 1962 (replies)
tonsillolith: <Rxc3 is a gunshot that was heard around the universe. Similar to one of Capablanca's games.> With this kind of tactics, Karpov would not have stood a chance against Fischer in '75.
   Apr-11-14 Smyslov vs Kasparian, 1947
tonsillolith: Black must think White is wasting time on the kingside with <37. g4> and <38. g5> while he walks to the queenside to capture White's b-pawn, but no, <39. b7!> and the pawn is immune to capture, thanks to the open channel h3-c8.
   Mar-21-14 Anand vs Kramnik, 2014
tonsillolith: <20...Rxg2!!> winning either the f-pawn or the h-pawn.
   Mar-06-14 Spassky vs K Wockenfuss, 1981
tonsillolith: Playing <17. Qh4> attacking the h7 square and forcing a weakness of the light squares around the king before playing <19. Qg3> was very nice, preventing the defense of <20...g6>.
   Feb-17-14 Larsen vs Ulf Andersson, 1972
tonsillolith: <33. Bc3!> taking advantage of the awkward placement of the Black rooks.
   Jan-09-14 Short vs Nakamura, 2013 (replies)
tonsillolith: <24...Nc3!!> leads through a complicated series of exchanges to a good endgame.
   Jan-09-14 Svidler vs Adams, 2013
tonsillolith: Why not <20. f3 exf3 21. exf3 Bd3 22. Nxd3 Nxd3+>?
   Nov-16-13 Duras vs Capablanca, 1913 (replies)
tonsillolith: Is it just me, or is <30. b4> a really bad move? It looks like <30. Rd4> would have been better.
   Nov-13-13 Caruana vs T Nyback, 2013
tonsillolith: This game reminds me of Botvinnik's remark about improving on 2-3 move combinations. Caruana continually squeezes the most out of the position by justifying his moves tactically with small combinations. <25. e5> and the pawn doesn't strictly have enough defenders, but the
   Nov-09-13 Aronian vs N Djukic, 2013 (replies)
tonsillolith: Good play by Aronian. However, I get the feeling that Black played poorly on the queenside. The knight to a6, queen to c7, and pawn to c5 don't seem to be mutually harmonious moves. Of course, I have no idea what I'm talking about.
