Mar-13-13  Old King Cole: A swindle by Heral.
Feb-27-16  zanzibar: Doesn't <CG> regularize its PGN?

This game ends in mate, not check.

Feb-28-16  morfishine: Hark the Herald, mate the King
Feb-28-16  zanzibar: Wow, what's going on here?!

Did <morfishine> just come up with a pretty good pun?

Feb-28-16  oxxo: Looks like Anderssen missed an easy win with 34. Rd3 here.
Feb-28-16  swordfish: Yes, and I think 35. Rd3 also would have done the trick also. Hard to imagine a player of Anderssen's caliber missing such a simple tactic.
Feb-28-16  zanzibar: 35.Rd3 Rxb2+ and Black can draw.
Dec-08-16  goser: Anderssen had at least four opportunities in a row for exchanging queens to get an easily won pawn ending: 44. Qc6+
45. Qxd6
46. Qxd6+
47. Qxd6+
Apr-07-17  sneaky pete: On move 49 Anderssen touched his King accidentally ("versehensweise"), so he had to move the King, states the tournament book. But he had thrown away the win already some moves earlier.

  naresb: After 18... Qd5 White was leading in development of pieces, king safety, pawn structure, space adv. There were many plans White could have thought of. In continuation White preferred tactical shots less co-ordinated, risking his own king safety.
Apr-13-21  cehertan: Omg exchanging q’s on d6 is a cakewalk. One of the worst flubs by such a strong player I’ve seen yet.
