   Jan-18-17 A Guest vs J Mason, 1887
 
tpstar: <crwynn> Thank you very much! Missed it.
 
   Jan-17-17 H Buckle vs Loewenthal, 1851
 
tpstar: Black to Play and Win after 26. Kh2. 36. Bxf3 gxf3 37. Kg1 becomes an instructive K&P ending: [DIAGRAM] The Pf3 and the Ph3 can protect each other, provided they wait until White's King attacks one of them to move; not 37 ... h2+? 38. Kxh2 or 37 ... f2+? 38. Kxf2 botching it. ...
 
   Jan-17-17 K Leffmann vs Zukertort, 1877
 
tpstar: If the final position was White to play instead, then 59. Kb2 Kd2 60. a3 (60. Ka1 c1=Q#) c1=Q+ 61. Ka2 Kc2/Kc3 62. axb4 Qb2#, or 61 ... bxa3 62. b4 Qb2#. Black to play wins with 59 ... Kc3 60. a3/a4 bxa3 61. b4 Kb3 62. Kd2 Kb2 (The Squeeze) etc. White erred with 49. Rxb6? as you ...
 
   Jan-17-17 F Madan vs J Keynes, 1874
 
tpstar: Black to Play and Win after 12. Bh4. Black to Play and Win after 16. fxg3.
 
   Jan-17-17 V Green vs Steinitz, 1864
 
tpstar: Tripled Pawns like this are called the Irish Center. The final position is an instructive K&P endgame for juniors and students: [DIAGRAM] Black wins due to the Opposition, thus 38 ... f6! 39. Kf3 f5 40. exf5 Kxf5 0-1 (instead of 38 ... f5?? 39. exf5 Kxf5 40. Kf3 drawing). The finish ...
 
   Jan-17-17 J Thompson vs Morphy, 1857
 
tpstar: ChessBase 13 gives 21. Qe2 Qxh1 0-1. After 15 ... Nd3+ Morphy must have known that he had a strategically won game.
 
   Jan-17-17 Wesley So (replies)
 
tpstar: Reviewing other kibitzing, 1. Nf3 d5 2. c4 is a "pure Reti" while 1. Nf3 d5 2. g3 followed by a later c4 is a Reti-Barcza, although there seems to be some disagreement about nomenclature for these flank/KIA openings. Gedeon Barcza Good luck in the middlegame, Wesley!
 
   Jan-17-17 S Atalik vs S Nurkic, 2005
 
tpstar: Cute mate at the end: 30 ... Ke4 31. Qxh7+ Kf4 32. Qf5#, or 30 ... Kg4 31. Qd7+ Kh5 (31 ... Kf4 32. Qf5#) 32. Qf5+ Kh6 33. Qg5#. On 30 ... Kf4 31. g3+ forces the Black King to a light square, followed by mating. 17 ... 0-0-0!? was incredibly risky.
 
   Jan-17-17 Szabo vs Guimard, 1962
 
tpstar: This line scores great for White = Opening Explorer In general, you never want your King as your most advanced piece, at least until the endgame. :P
 
   Jan-16-17 Simagin vs V Zbandutto, 1948
 
tpstar: [Fritz 10] : 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Nd4 4. Nxd4 exd4 5. 0-0 c6 6. Ba4 Ne7 7. d3 d5 8. Nd2 [last book move] g6 9. Re1 Be6 10. Nf3 Bg7 11. exd5 [11. Bg5 h6 12. Bxe7 Kxe7 13. exd5 cxd5 ] Nxd5 [
