   Jul-22-18 A Byrne vs J Skaale, 2017 (replies)
DoneMac: at ChessHigherCat (& crwynn) - I think if you revisit the game you will agree that White is in total control after 28. hxg5 fxg5 29. Rxg5 Qd4+ 30. Ke1 Nd3+ 31. cxd3 Rc1+ 32. Ke2! the Queen on g1 is untouchable due to mate on h6 if 32... Qxb2 then 33. Ke3 and now if 33... Rxf3 ...
   Dec-31-16 M Ragger vs M Bluebaum, 2016 (replies)
DoneMac: 12... f6!? is a real nice move - looks to give Black equality and is Black's answer to Kramnik's earlier win over Meier in the same line < Kramnik vs G Meier, 2016 >
   Oct-24-15 Portisch vs Kavalek, 1975 (replies)
DoneMac: This was a brilliant over-the-board draw that emphasizes creativity over variations... I'm sure both players went by gut over analysis because there are so many possibilities that enabled Kavalek to take advantage of a rare scenario and was able to find counterplay in position where
   Nov-22-14 Smyslov vs Polugaevsky, 1961 (replies)
DoneMac: Unfortunately Keres "dismissed" 23... g6 (though noted it has "debatable question") with White being better after one of many variations but the the conclusion offered after two provided variants "24. Qf2 Qd5 25. Qf4 Bb7 Rf3"(looks no more than equal); or just 24. Rf4... either ...
   Jun-19-10 G Welling vs Pardoen, 1981 (replies)
DoneMac: (In response to Judah) I think 13. Rf4!? (13. dxc looks about equal) sets up 14. Nxf7 since a pawn is on d4 and not a Queen with check; secondly it looks like Black's real mistake was the retreat 16...Kg8?!, 16... e5!? forcing the Rook to retreat would perhaps give Black some time ...
   Jun-09-10 Morozevich vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2009 (replies)
DoneMac: An unfortunate lost for Morozevich as someone mentioned 26.Rxf8! - this wins by force... after Rxf8 27. Qxe5 threatens Be6+ winning the Queen or mates - even if Black wants to avoid mate then Black would need to play Rh7 - leading to a tremendous material advantage for White... ...
   Jun-05-10 Bjorn Nielsen (replies)
DoneMac: The games by the "2009 B Nielsen" should be removed from this former Champion's page - it is a really poor miss by the DB admin
   Jun-01-10 P Corbin vs D Gajadin, 2004 (replies)
DoneMac: Excellent OTB example of Bishop & Knight check mating!
   Mar-06-10 Topalov vs Kasparov, 1994 (replies)
DoneMac: after 22.Rc7 b6 would be an easier way for Black to secure even chances (or 22...e6!? if Black I just wouldn't like the possibility of White creating an outside passer - especially given the White-square Bishop - however, given the Knight on f4, Black should secure enough ...
   Jan-17-10 Keres vs Capablanca, 1937 (replies)
DoneMac: 32. Rb7 or 32 Bh6 should lead to simply won endings - 32. f4 gives Black chances - it seems Keres was trying to do too much
