   May-06-23 Fischer vs Spassky, 1992 (replies)
Atking: <mojonera: perfomance rating in this match : Fischer 2698.5 , 2780 + 2560 /2 + 28.5 and spassky 2641.5> I have great doubt that Boris Spassky chess strength was around 2560 Elo when he was really motivated. And for this match he was.
   Apr-30-23 Giri vs D Gukesh, 2023 (replies)
Atking: Memorable game. Smoothly logical even the apparently brutal 18&19 moves. Reminds me Max Euwe in his best days.
   Apr-29-23 Ding Liren vs Nepomniachtchi, 2023 (replies)
Atking: That's a draw. How this could be a question? Even if black King does support his a3 pawn for if b4; Rb8+ Kc3; Rc8+ Kb2; Rb8+ Ka-or-c1 Ra8 Black rook can't free itself without loosing his only valuable pawn.
   Apr-17-23 Ding Liren vs Nepomniachtchi, 2023 (replies)
Atking: Great game! And an aesthetic mate to end it. 45.QxR+ and Rforh8#
   Feb-25-23 Fischer vs J Platz, 1964 (replies)
Atking: A typical lost on simultanous performance. White is obviously clearly better - probably winning - around move 20 - missed a tactical point, then another... and got a lost position
   Feb-16-23 N Abdusattorov vs J van Foreest, 2023
Atking: 11.g4 gives too much importance to h5 pawn. Prophylaxis first 11.Kb1 and after the exchanges on d4, a4! to play on Queen side (not on King side).
   Feb-11-23 Tartakower vs J Torres Caravaca, 1929 (replies)
Atking: Why not simply 28...a4?
   Jan-15-23 D Gukesh vs Ding Liren, 2023 (replies)
Atking: Well played by Ding Liren! Yet also a failure from Gukesh from the opening. 12.Ne1 is too passive. The concept closed position N a bit better than B was wrong as show 16...Nc5! simple and good. Monster Bishop on d4 6 moves latter. Still trying to prove that N is a valuable piece. ...
   Jan-08-23 V Borisenko-Belova vs M Lazarevic, 1961
Atking: 15...e4? such beautiful e file... 15...exf 16.exf Qe3+ and 17...Bf5!
   Dec-23-22 Morphy vs Maurian, 1863 (replies)
Atking: It's a gem. A few years ago I showed this game to my young chess students revealing not only the clever tactical passes 38.Nf8! as a mate exercice giving 34.a4! all its charm but also the hypermodern spirit of the opening. Not seeing a chess genius here, seems to me crazy...
