   Sep-16-17 Nezhmetdinov vs Polugaevsky, 1961
 
zydeco: The players repeat their opening from this game: Nezhmetdinov vs Polugaevsky, 1959 After 20....h5! black is much better.
 
   Sep-10-17 Gurgenidze vs Spassky, 1961
 
zydeco: The shot is 54....Bxb2 and if white takes the bishop the c-pawn queens. Probably white had to steer the king towards the queenside a couple of moves earlier.
 
   Sep-10-17 Vasiukov vs Gurgenidze, 1961
 
zydeco: 26...f5 initiates a very odd - and losing - sacrifice of two pieces for a rook.
 
   Sep-10-17 Tal vs B Vladimirov, 1961
 
zydeco: Very attractive win by Tal, starting with the pawn sacrifice 26.g5!? After 36.Kf2 black can't stop 37.Rh1+ Kg7 38.Rh7+ Kf8 39.Rh8+ Ke7 40.Re8#
 
   Sep-09-17 Bronstein vs Savon, 1961
 
zydeco: 24.Re3! threatens immediately to trap the queen unexpectedly with 25.c4 and also to swing the rook to h3. It's possible that black's only defensive chance is 25....Nf8, although 26.e6 looks like a problem.
 
   Sep-09-17 Tal vs A Khasin, 1961
 
zydeco: Khasin made some odd choices in the late middlegame: 35....f5?!; 36...Ne4?!
 
   Sep-09-17 Gipslis vs Smyslov, 1961
 
zydeco: Exciting win for Gipslis who played very aggressively out of the opening. Smyslov was at a low point in his career around this time. Probably Smyslov should have played 21...Nc5. 21...c5 is uncharacteristic for him - a doubled-edged sacrificial attack that ultimately leads to a ...
 
   Aug-29-17 Polugaevsky vs Vasiukov, 1961
 
zydeco: Very professional game by Polugayevsky. I like the combination starting with 29.Bd2.
 
   Aug-24-17 Keres vs Vasiukov, 1961
 
zydeco: Keres maneuvers himself into a strange position with the rook on g3 and bishop on h2.
 
   Aug-24-17 L Shamkovich vs Kholmov, 1961
 
zydeco: 17...exd4 looks like the principled move, although it gets wild there too. A sample variation: 18.Nxd4 Ne5 19.Bxh6 Qxc4 20.Rxg7+ Kh8 21.Qh5 Bf4+ and then probably 22.Bxf4 Kxg7 loses, but 22.Kb1 wins. Lots of alternatives and everything gets tactical.
