   Jun-15-20 Najdorf vs Reshevsky, 1953
Gaito: Some key annotations to this game can be found in Bent Larsen's book "Find the Plan" (Game 44). According to Larsen 30....Bf7? was a bad move. Black should have tried 30...Bxa4, though White still has the better game after 31.Ng4 Rd6 32.Nh6 Bb3 33.Bxa5!. For example: 33....Rc8 (not ...
   Apr-11-20 Capablanca vs Tartakower, 1928 (replies)
Gaito: Capablanca missed a very beautiful variation pointed out by Swedish Grandmaster Gideon Stahlberg in his book (in Spanish language) "Partidas Clįsicas de Capablanca" (Capablanca's Classical Games) published in Argentina in 1943. Instead of 8.Nf3 (the natural developing move) Capa ...
   Apr-11-20 Spassky vs N Rashkovsky, 1973
Gaito: After 16...fxe6 17:Bd6! Qb6!, White might try 18.Qxe6+!? Kd8 19. Bf5! Bc6 20.Rxd1 Re8 21.Qf7 Qe3+ 22.Kb1 Qe2! 23.Kc1, and White should accept the draw by repetition of moves, since 23.Rc1?! Qd2! (preventing 24.e6) 24.Qxg7 Ra7 25.Qxh7 Qd4! 26.c3 Qf2, seems to be losing for White, see ...
   Mar-29-20 Capablanca vs N Zubarev, 1925 (replies)
Gaito: I should have written "a very old book published in Argentina just one year after Capablanca's death". Sorry. I know that Capablanca died in New York city. Excuse my redaction. English is not my language.
   Mar-19-20 Ravinsky vs Simagin, 1957
Gaito: In his book of his 64 selected games (published in Russian and in Spanish), grandmaster Vladimir Simagin wrote that 13. Bd4? was a mistake. Instead, he suggested 13. Nd2 with a view to supporting White's central grip.
   Mar-16-20 Y Troinov vs L Popov, 1962
Gaito: This is Game number 100 in P. H. Clarke's famous book: "100 Soviet Chess Miniatures", G. Bell & Sons, Ltd., 1963
   Mar-10-20 Portisch vs Petrosian, 1974 (replies)
Gaito: 7...a6? is a mistake, known since 1922. It was first played in a game Alekhine vs. Bogoljubov, Hastings, 1922, 5th round. Alekhine of course punished it with 8.c5!, whereby the square b6 was critically weak for Black. Portisch was on the receiving side of that mistake when he himself ...
   Mar-10-20 Hort vs Portisch, 1973
Gaito: 7....a6? is a mistake known since 1922 (game Alekhine vs. Bogoljubov, Hastings, 1922, 5th round). Alekhine punished that weak move with 8.c5! whereby the square b6 became weak for Black (and strong for White).
   Mar-04-20 Bogoljubov vs Capablanca, 1928 (replies)
Gaito: This particular game, despite its relative simplicity and lack of fireworks, was once chosen by former world champion Tigran Petrosian as one of his all-time favorite games. That happened during an interview for a Mexican magazine.
   Feb-27-20 Kupreichik vs Estrin, 1965
Gaito: If 20...Bxd5, then 21. Qxd5 Nxe5 22. Nxh7+ Ke7 23. Qxe5+ Kd7 24. Rd1+, and White wins outright. In this variation, if Black plays 21...Re7 (instead of 21...Nxe5), then White wins with 22. Nxf6+ Ke8 23. Qg8+.
