   Feb-26-18 Y Gusev vs E Auerbach, 1946
NeverAgain: <singate: Is there a win after 29...cxb3 30.axb3 a5? If so, I have been unable to find it on a real board or with the computer.> The information you are looking for is eight posts up from your post, on the same page even: Y Gusev vs E Auerbach, 1946 (kibitz #144)
   Feb-01-18 Keres vs Larsen, 1966 (replies)
NeverAgain: This game was featured in the first volume of Sahovski Informator and annotated (sparsely) by Marič and Rudolf. The opening is indeed the Nimzovich Defence; by move seven it looks more like a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit sideline, though. The annotators attach a "?" to 11...Nd4, ...
   Jan-23-17 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1962
NeverAgain: SF and Houdini don't see a win (or even a meaningful advantage) for Black in the final position either. 8 GB hash and 5-men Syzygy each. asmfish 170117 64 POPCNT: 36...e4 37.Ra8+ Kf7 38.Ra7+ Ke8 39.Ra8+ Kd7 40.Ra7+ Kc8 41.Ra8+ Kb7 42.Bxd6 Rxd6 43.Bxe4+ Kc7 44.Ra7+ Kb6 45.Rb7+ ...
   Sep-11-16 Botvinnik vs Bronstein, 1951
NeverAgain: It's not a case of Bronstein saving the game, it's Botvinnik getting rattled and throwing away his huge advantage over the course of several moves. Resignation trap listed Botvinnik's comments here: Botvinnik vs Bronstein, 1951 (kibitz #33) plang's post right above yours is ...
   Mar-17-16 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
NeverAgain: <jnpope: Full tablebase generation (after 40.Kh4): 100% complete, 177h:16m elapsed. The results are definitive: White wins. Period> You could have arrived at the same conclusion in less than an hour after running SF with 6-men Syzygy on a Core2 Duo. RandomVisitor posted his
   Feb-28-16 Tal vs R Bogdanovic, 1967 (replies)
NeverAgain: @gawain: I presume you're talking about <20.Bd1>. The "annotations" on Jon Edwards' blog are indeed little more than what he himself calls "quick notes". The <21...Kxe7> is not only playable, it's the only move, as the line <21...Qxe7 22.Ba4+ Kd8 23.Qa5+ Kc8> ...
   Feb-27-16 Larsen vs Portisch, 1977 (replies)
NeverAgain: Three hours and eight iterations later: 21...a5 22.Rgf4 a4 23.R4f2 Ra5 24.Rd1 Rc5 25.Kh2 b5 26.cxb5 Bxb5 27.Bxb5 Rxb5 28.g4 h6 <snip> (0.90) Depth: 44/65 03:33:34 191496MN, tb=15555995 Looks like Black can hold this ending. The direct <22.h5> doesn't seem to promise ...
   Feb-26-16 E Lazarev vs Korchnoi, 1953 (replies)
NeverAgain: Never mind, that diagram is completely wrong - here is the correct one: [DIAGRAM]
   Feb-26-16 Gligoric vs Fischer, 1958 (replies)
NeverAgain: Next I set Houdini 4 Pro x64 in Tactical Mode (slower, wider search tailored to unearthing hard-to-find tactical shots) upon <14.0-0+>. Two hours and two hundred billion nodes later it duplicated Nunn's main line until move 20 (!) but the discrepancy turned out to be ...
   Feb-26-16 Portoroz Interzonal (1958) (replies)
NeverAgain: The "38" is a postal zone/district number, the predecessor of the ZIP code.
