Mar-22-11  aniceto: 20.Nd8!, next move the knight reaches f7 and white finds out he can do nothing. Nice game by Korchnoi

Feb-10-12  Breyannis Nektarios: Another sturdy defensive performance from "Victor the Terrible". Picture the position after 16...hg: Exposed King, most of his pieces on the other side of the board, White has the initiative plus the two bishops... The manouevre Nc6-d8-f7 to cover the dark squares on the kingside is particularly instructive. At no point did R.Byrne had a clear attacking continuation. I don't know the time-limit and whether he was under time pressure, but, perhaps frustrated, came up with the dubious idea of transferring his King to the queenside. This marked the beginning of the end...
