   Sep-09-21 Marshall vs Janowski, 1905
BAJones: Indeed! 26.Rf1 guards both the first rank and the King from check, and also prepares to double Rooks on the f-file, concentrating most of White's forces against the weak square on f6. A very economical move, combining attack with defence.
   Dec-09-19 Pillsbury vs G Marco, 1904 (replies)
BAJones: Thank you, HarryP. The rest of the game could be sub-titled: 'How to save a lost ending'. White immediately takes his chance with 37.Kd3!, bringing the King into the fray. From move 40, Pillsbury gives a model display in a disadvantageous Rook and Pawn ending.
   Oct-08-18 Maroczy vs L Dewing, 1925
BAJones: Maroczy carries out an eight-move Queen's tour, manoeuvring almost entirely on the white squares and the third rank. Consummate skill!
   Sep-18-18 Shamkovich vs A Anguiano, 1978 (replies)
BAJones: Only had a quick look at this, but it seems to me that the moves 13...Qb6 (inconsequential) and 14...Red8 (too slow, and loss of tempi, as the piece has already moved), are suspect. Black would have done better to immediately remove the White Knight with 14...Nxe5. Any views, ...
   Sep-17-18 Colle vs G A Thomas, 1926
BAJones: 12...Nxe4 should have been played.It was essential to eliminate the central White Knight at e4. Not doing so enables White to seize the initiative. Excellent attacking play by Colle.
   Sep-14-18 Botvinnik vs Capablanca, 1938 (replies)
BAJones: This is a great game, but what makes it great are not the sacrifices - impressive as they are - but the underlying strategic concepts. For half of the game, Black's Queen and Queen's Knight were effectively out of action. Capablanca's Queen's Knight moved five times in the first 18 ...
   Jul-11-18 Kupchik vs Capablanca, 1926 (replies)
BAJones: Will someone please tell me why 35.Rc2 does not work?
   Jul-09-18 Bogoljubov vs Tarrasch, 1922
BAJones: Comparison of this game to another very similar game played by Alexander Alekhine and Jose Raul Capablanca just the month before, at the London, 1922 tournament, is instructive.In that game, Capablanca was safely able to complete the moves ...c5, followed by ...cxd4. He was ...
   May-21-18 Capablanca vs Marshall, 1927 (replies)
BAJones: This game abounds in 'petit combinations', which were a hallmark of Capablanca's play, namely 25.Bxh6, 31.Nxd6, 50.d6, 53.h5! (after which, Black's remaining pawns are all lined-up on the 5th. rank, ready to be captured one after the other), and 60.Kc3. Marshall just manages to ...
   Oct-10-17 Rubinstein vs Maroczy, 1920 (replies)
BAJones: A truly beautiful finish of the highest order. However, Rubinstein had previously used his diversionary Bishop sacrifice in a game with Mieses in 1905.In both games, Bh4 had compelled his opponent's resignation.
