   Jun-16-18 Y Nikolaevsky vs Gipslis, 1967
zydeco: Nikolaevsky plays the opening really loose with 11.h4? and 12.c4?
   Jun-16-18 V Osnos vs Gipslis, 1967
zydeco: 16.b4 is a lemon. Black can win a pawn with 16....cxb4 17.axb4 Bxb4 but white breaks up the kingside with 18.Bxf6 and has the d4 square to work with. Black is probably better in this line, but Gipslis improves by pushing the c-pawn and taking control of d3.
   May-20-18 Gipslis vs Gurgenidze, 1967
zydeco: A real corker. Nice game by Gipslis.
   Apr-29-18 Gufeld vs Gipslis, 1967
zydeco: Great game - from Gipslis' best tournament. Very important finesse with 37....Qd4+. If 38.Kh1 Qe3. Of course if 37....Qxf6 38.Bc3.
   Apr-14-18 Geller vs A Lein, 1967
zydeco: An important game in this tournament. Lein was leading until late. The computer likes 20....Nd5.
   Apr-11-18 Stein vs Kholmov, 1967
zydeco: In their book of the Soviet Championships, Taimanov and Cafferty note that black had several chances to castle queenside and return the pawn - but noted that Kholmov "was not one to refuse a challenge," so held onto the pawn as long as he could. They call 27.Rc8! a "far from ...
   Apr-11-18 A Lein vs Stein, 1967
zydeco: Lein is one of these grandmasters who always look good, even in defeat. Interesting use of an off-beat opening by Stein. 17.Bf1 is a bit baffling but works out ok. Cute simplifications by Stein starting with 46....Rxd6. One of Stein's best games of the tournament.
   Apr-11-18 Stein vs Gurgenidze, 1967
zydeco: True to his wild nature, Gurgenidze sacrifices a piece for three pawns with 14....Nb4!? He has interesting compensation but blunders badly with 30.....f5? In this tournament, many of Stein's opponents were so eager to wrest the initiative from him that they attacked recklessly and ...
   Apr-11-18 Stein vs Bronstein, 1967
zydeco: I like 17....Bd2! The machine says that black is very slightly better after 22....Rg3.
   Apr-11-18 Polugaevsky vs Stein, 1967
zydeco: Nice use of the two bishops by Polugayevsky. Maybe 40...a5 is the fatal mistake.
