Aggressive chess player fond of gambits. Love attacking games from Tal and Morphy (and others of course), but also the great strategy of players like Tigran Petrosian.

   Oct-10-23 Blackburne vs NN, 1863 (replies)
ChessIsLife159753: Blackburne's mating idea, 22.b4+ Bxb4 23.Bb6+ !! axb6 24.Qxa8 #, is really brilliant and unusual in my opinion.
   Apr-11-23 A Tsvetkov vs Smyslov, 1947
ChessIsLife159753: I think this game is a very nice example of both maneuvring on a small space (...Rd8, ...Bc8, ...Ng7 and ...Rf7 to prepare ...f5!) and of great endgame mastery (the queen on d4 controlled the whole board; 33...Kf8!! avoids entry of the White queen) by Smyslov.
   Feb-18-23 Tal vs Ljubojevic, 1979
ChessIsLife159753: What a wonderful game. 14.a3!! uses a less typical plan in the benoni, namely going for b2-b4 and press on the queenside. Also his 2 Petrosian-like exchange sacrifices (34.Rxc4! and 44.Rxd6!!) were just beyond belief.
   Jan-13-23 Karpov vs Uhlmann, 1973
ChessIsLife159753: Great game. I adore the way how Karpov played against Black's light-squared bishop: 22.g4!! not allowing him to reach e6 or d7. Also a nice demonstration of the power of rooks on the seventh rank.
   Dec-23-22 Tal vs Bronstein, 1973
ChessIsLife159753: Tal's 10.Rde1 (clearing d1 for the knight as well) and 11.e5! plan is very interesting. I am pretty sure he wanted to meet 11...Bxf3 with 12.exd6!! when he would have certainly felt comfortable in this position true to his style. 12.Nh4-Nxg6! was nice sacrifice, and ...
   Dec-23-22 Morphy vs Maurian, 1863 (replies)
ChessIsLife159753: 34.a4!! is too briliant for words. After 34...bxa3 35.Rg7+ Kh8 36.Nf8! Black has no check on a2 anymore and therefore he will have to play ...Re2+ to hope for a perpetual. But after Kh3! there is no bishop check on f1 anymore.
   Dec-09-22 Anand vs Illescas Cordoba, 1992 (replies)
ChessIsLife159753: Great game. I like Black's manoeuvre of 10...Nb8-Nbd7 because d7 is simply the correct square for the knight in the Hedgehog. But Anand's play was simply incredible. The whole game was simply about prophylaxis: 21.Nd4! discouraging ...d5 (22.exd5.exd5 23.Nf5!?) and ...
   Nov-27-22 Flohr vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1954
ChessIsLife159753: What a bizarre game. White felt much better for a while, and then suddenly ...h5-h4 came. Indeed, @goodevans, the pawn advance didn't seem so effective at first, but somehow gave Black a great game.
   Nov-26-22 Fischer vs Tal, 1959 (replies)
ChessIsLife159753: Absolutely fantastic game. 21...f5!! is a stunner: Tal doesn't want an open f- or h-file, but an open g-file!
   Nov-24-22 M Sibarevic vs E Bukic, 1976 (replies)
ChessIsLife159753: 17.Rxe5+!! is the real stunner. Black is mated shortly after 17...Nxe5 18.Nf6# or 17...dxe5 18.Nf6+! Nxf6 19.Rd8#. The rook sac had the purpose of opening the d-file (variation 2) or deflecting the knight (variation 1).
