   Jul-22-17 Jansa vs Huebner, 1969
yiotta: The opening approach to dealing with the King's Indian Attack was not new, but Huebner took it to a new level with spectacular tactical fireworks, beginning with the undermining of the support for c5, what a game!
   Jul-18-17 J Critelli vs T Taylor, 2006
yiotta: 39...Kg5? seems to lose by force. Nice finish.
   Jul-04-17 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
yiotta: This game has computer DNA all over it, I think. Quite a blockade, I'm amazed MVL lasted as long as he did.
   Jul-02-17 Anand vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
yiotta: <thegoodanarchist:Where would you put Petrosian on that list? Ahead of who?> I would prefer Karpov ahead of Lasker not only alphabetically but for consistent quality of games, but have to agree that Petrosian might belong as a formidable number eight. Good list.
   Jul-01-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
yiotta: Nepomniachtchi started it (2.d4), but he wasn't ready for what hit him. I'm inspired, think I'll go play some blitz...
   Jul-01-17 Carlsen vs W So, 2017 (replies)
yiotta: <ajk68> I don't see a perpetual here for White after 52.Ke4 Rc4 53.Rh1+, the Black king simply walks up the white squares to freedom, doesn't he?
   Jun-08-17 A Pomar Salamanca vs Hug, 1972
yiotta: I hate 4...Qe7. On move 11, the Black queen and knights finally wind up in the configuration they could have started with, far too late. Pomar exploited the disharmony in Hug's position beautifully, starting with 8.c5!
   Jun-05-17 W So vs Carlsen, 2016
yiotta: So might have been short of time, not to see the threat; once the rook moves to e8, you have to wonder what happens if it can check on e1.
   Jun-05-17 Grob vs C Chaude de Silans, 1951
yiotta: The way to a man's heart is thru his stomach (see photo)
   May-28-17 M Marin vs D Alzate, 2002
yiotta: A really nice technical win against a slightly weaker opponent; the difference in understanding between an IM and a GM.
