   Jul-16-09 L Karlsson vs Balashov, 1983
Abaduba: <TheTamale> Black is totally tied up and can barely do anything without losing material. Since only the Black King and pawns can safely move, White can invade at their convenience.
   May-20-09 Korchnoi vs V Chekhover, 1955 (replies)
Abaduba: <WhiteRook48> After a set of Rooks gets traded, White is up an exchange and the Black King is too far away from their Queenside pawns. The endgame is easily won, especially for a player of Korchnoi's technique. For example, 51. …Rg6 52. Rxg6+ Bxg6 53. Kg4 b5 54. Rc6 ...
   Apr-18-09 Psakhis vs Kasparov, 1990 (replies)
Abaduba: <RiverBeast> The name "Great Snake" refers to the fact that white is essentially playing the Sicilian Dragon with colors reversed. Since there's no chance for Black to choose the super-sharp lines like the Yugoslav Attack, it's a dragon that doesn't breathe fire – in other
   Feb-16-09 Kamsky vs Kramnik, 2006
Abaduba: <Snaeulf> Black draws against 51. Rf5 not with …Ra6+ but with 51. …Ra7! in order to drive back the White King with …Rg7+. If 52. g4, then 52. …Rg7+ 53. Kh4 Rh7+ 54. Kg5 Ra7!, preparing to cut off the White King along the 3rd rank as in Philidor's Draw. If White ...
   Feb-05-09 R Cardoso vs Fischer, 1957 (replies)
Abaduba: <ounos>, <graynid> The threat at move 31 was not only 32. Nf6+ but also 32. Bxh7+ (32. …Kxh7 33. Qh5+ Kg8 34. Nf6+ gxf6 35. Rg2 #, or, if the f8-Rook has moved, 36. f6 will follow, mating.) and especially 32. Qg4/h5. …Kg8 and …h6 answer the first two threats but ...
   Feb-04-09 M Athar Ansari vs J Perona, 2001 (replies)
Abaduba: It's a pun off the title of the catchy but annoying song from one-hit-wonder band The Knack called "My Sharona."
   Jul-04-08 Topalov vs Kasimdzhanov, 2005
Abaduba: <kewlmodie> If 32…Nf8, then White plays 33. Rd7! first, and now Black is helpless against 34. Bc4 (and he can always throw in Qxf6+, Qf7+ if he wishes), e.g. …Rc8 35. Bc4 Rxc4 36. Rd8
   May-17-08 M Kolnik vs Schurr, 1940
Abaduba: Oh, 12. …Ke7 13. Bg5#. Thanks Elxiddicus.
   May-17-08 Taimanov vs Kaidanov, 1988 (replies)
Abaduba: To echo <blackjacki2>'s question, why not 10. Bxc6? GoHabsGo's "answer" does not make any sense at all. I thought there might be something with …Ba6 and keeping the king in the center, but d3 lets White castle after all. I honestly can't see any reason not to take a free ...
   May-13-08 I Cheparinov vs Navara, 2007 (replies)
Abaduba: <dehanne> 35. Ra2 saves the Rook at the expense of mate, but the position is already hopeless. If 35. ♕xg7, then 35. … ♘g7, which stops the checks and threatens mate by 36. … ♖a2+ 37. ♔c1 (37. ♔e1 ♗g3+ 38. ♔d1 ♖a1#) ...
