|Feb-27-06|| ||Resignation Trap: Interesting line: 1.c4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nd4!? Anand was successful here, and two years later he also defeated Karpov with this line: Karpov vs Anand, 1991 .|
|May-03-06|| ||who: Greenblatt (Computer) vs Fischer, 1977, Bird vs Janowski, 1899, Tarrasch vs Bird, 1895, Janowski vs Winawer, 1901, Marshall vs Winawer, 1901 are a few more.|
|May-03-06|| ||LoFarkas: MPA: You can include all the games of Korchnoi from 2000 on... :DDD|
|Jul-18-08|| ||VaselineTopLove: Why not 36...Nxd1?|
|Aug-08-08|| ||visayanbraindoctor: Reshevsky versus the two torres.
Carlos Torre vs Reshevsky, 1924
E Torre vs Reshevsky, 1977
|Nov-03-08|| ||M.D. Wilson: Anand loved Tal.|
|Nov-05-08|| ||veerar: <Original "older" Tahl>,playing his younger clone!The finish is reminiscent of <Tahl>,himself!|
|Nov-09-08|| ||M.D. Wilson: Yes, indeed.|
|Apr-29-11|| ||jullios paras: Misha Tal is still great!! great moves from a veteran!!|
|Sep-14-11|| ||coolchess1: Good game involving my two all time favourite players. Great players and great individuals.|
|Dec-27-12|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: This thread's a great collection of cross-generational matchups. Really enjoyable playing through these games.|
|Dec-27-12|| ||me to play: Here is another...Seirawan vs Robson, 2012|
|Feb-05-13|| ||crazyim5: The only game between two of the most naturally talented chess players ever lived!|
|Feb-05-13|| ||FSR: It's funny - Browne vs Fischer, 1970 feels like a cross-generational game to me, but the two players were born only 6 years apart!|
|Feb-05-13|| ||FSR: What - no one mentioned Caruana vs Korchnoi, 2011???|
|Feb-05-13|| ||FSR: James Mortimer was a "rabbit," but one with a long career, who reportedly played Morphy in Paris in the 1860s. J Mortimer vs Tartakower, 1907|
|Nov-05-14|| ||voyager39: Amazing to find someone who played Tal now playing Carlsen and Caruana.|
|Dec-31-15|| ||southeuro: soltis, commenting on this game, gives white erred with Qd3, cd changing pawn structure. But I fail to see why, if that were black's intention, he didn't do it a move earlier, with cd instead of Rc8? any explanation? Thanks|
|Dec-31-15|| ||Caissanist: Actually there are a number of GMs who played all three of the names voyager39 mentioned, since Tal remained active right up to the end. Besides Anand, they include Short, Granda, Adams, Kamsky, and of course Karpov and Korchnoi. Probably there are others. |
I remember when Korchnoi first played Carlsen he noted that he was one of the very few to play GMs born more than 100 years apart; he had lost a brilliancy to Levenfish in the early fifties.
|Dec-31-15|| ||perfidious: <Caissanist....when Korchnoi first played Carlsen he noted that he was one of the very few to play GMs born more than 100 years apart....>|
Difficult to imagine there could even be anyone else who pulled this off.
Do not believe I managed to play GMs born as much as fifty years apart, with the extremes I can think of being Shamkovich (born 1923) to Zsusza Polgar (1969) and Dragan Kosic ('70).
Oops: this tired old brain just recalled Lesiege (b 1975). So much for that.
|Dec-31-15|| ||Caissanist: I know of one--Arnold Denker. He played Mieses (born 1865) and Zsusza Polgar (1969). There are a few others who played a 100-years younger GM, but before the younger player received the title.|
|Jan-05-16|| ||Caissanist: Nope, Korchnoi is the only one after all, since Denker played Mieses in 1946 and the GM title wasn't formalized until 1950.|
|Dec-03-17|| ||tpstar: After an opening where Black moves the QN twice in the first three moves, then plays 8 ... Rb8 & 9 ... Nh6, Tal probably expected an easy win against the young Anand. But their game developed into the tricky QRRN vs QRRN situation and Black won.|
A great Game Collection:

|Jun-12-18|| ||GrahamClayton: A perfect example of a bad knight, stuck on the corner of the board and unable to find any decent squares.|
|Jun-12-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Instructive to see why 18. Nd1 is such a bad move.|
