   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.
   Apr-11-18 Stein vs Doroshkievich, 1967
zydeco: It was considerate of Doroshkievich to give Stein a pawn with 20....Nc7.
   Apr-11-18 Taimanov vs Stein, 1967
zydeco: Suttles improved on this line the next year with 14.f5!
   Apr-11-18 V Liberzon vs Stein, 1966
zydeco: Wow, what a great game by Stein, showcasing his abilities in all phases of the game. I like the quiet, flexible 18....Re7 in the opening. He plays a model Benoni and retains an advantage all the way through. Not easy to work his way through the concluding tactics either.
   Apr-11-18 Stein vs Krogius, 1966
zydeco: 14....Nd5?! results in a loose kingside for black. Krogius has to work very hard to stitch his position together. I think 29....Qa3 can keep black in the game longer. After 30.Rd7 Be7 31.Qh7+ Kf7 32.Bg6+ Kf6 is surprisingly tough: 33.Bh5 Qc1+ 34.Kh2 Qf4+ 35.g3 Qf5. Or 33.Ne5+ Kf6 ...
