Games that SHOULD have been "shorties" ...
Compiled by LIFE Master AJ
--*--

These are games that should have been miniatures, one side was clearly lost, but played on ... ... ... (for whatever reason). I find the winner's play so convincing that - for me - these games are like miniatures, even if the loser spoiled things by playing on.

The mighty Botvinnik crushes his opponent. (WTP / 19. '?')
Botvinnik vs G Stepanov (Schneideman), 1931 
(D43) Queen's Gambit Declined Semi-Slav, 34 moves, 1-0

Black should have quit after 10.BxP/f7+!! , & 11.Ne6! +-
Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1958 
(B32) Sicilian, 42 moves, 1-0

Black SHOULD have resigned after 9...Ba6??; 10.Qa4! & 11.d5 +-
Saemisch vs Capablanca, 1929 
(E24) Nimzo-Indian, Samisch, 62 moves, 1-0
