sorokahdeen's Intriguing Games
Compiled by sorokahdeen

After finally finding out that this feature exists, I figured I'd use it, starting with a game by gashimov

This game is definitely filled with fireworks
V Gashimov vs Grischuk, 2008 
(C72) Ruy Lopez, Modern Steinitz Defense, 5.O-O, 33 moves, 1-0

A feast of tactics
V Gashimov vs R Kempinski, 2011 
(B54) Sicilian, 24 moves, 1-0

Weird Gambit Idea in Petrov's Defense
V Gashimov vs Smeets, 2010 
(C42) Petrov Defense, 33 moves, 1-0

More Fireworks
V Gashimov vs Tiviakov, 2008 
(B01) Scandinavian, 31 moves, 1-0

Ruy Lopez that requires analysis
V Gashimov vs M Roiz, 2009 
(C91) Ruy Lopez, Closed, 40 moves, 1-0

Very Manly Attack
V Gashimov vs B Lalic, 2007 
(C42) Petrov Defense, 25 moves, 1-0

Ruy Lopez, Complex Middle Game
V Gashimov vs Kamsky, 2008 
(C84) Ruy Lopez, Closed, 52 moves, 1-0

Very Tenacious defense
Aronian vs V Gashimov, 2002 
(E10) Queen's Pawn Game, 61 moves, 0-1

Oh, the *pain!* Combination. Themes: Deflection and overloading
Suba vs L M Garcia Lopez, 1994 
(A97) Dutch, Ilyin-Genevsky, 27 moves, 1-0

Something for a later look.
Nakamura vs McShane, 2009 
(E94) King's Indian, Orthodox, 55 moves, 0-1

Pieces Everywhere!
Lutikov vs Korchnoi, 1951 
(C35) King's Gambit Accepted, Cunningham, 24 moves, 1-0

I hate the albin countergambit
I Sokolov vs Morozevich, 2005 
(D08) Queen's Gambit Declined, Albin Counter Gambit, 34 moves, 0-1

very interesting game, material versus time and coordination
Polgar vs Tiviakov, 2001 
(B30) Sicilian, 30 moves, 1-0

Slow, counterplayless suffocation by pawns. Intriguing.
Bronstein vs Najdorf, 1954

Great Attack With Reduced Material
V Malakhatko vs Beshukov, 2000

Anti Noteboom, high-energy attack

The noteboom trades development for material and space.
