   Aug-06-20 M Aroven vs Palle Nielsen, 2017 (replies)
 
HarryP: And now Black, after White's 55th move, realizes his last move was a blunder, for a familiar mating pattern has appeared. Black can delay mate by one move, but there is nothing he can do to escape it. His fate will be to die by the Opera Mate, made famous by Paul Morphy.
 
   Aug-02-20 Capablanca vs Fine, 1938
 
HarryP: Capa's missed win in this game is one of the TrainingBot problems on the ICC. It was submitted by yours truly.
 
   Jun-07-20 K Skalicka vs Josef Koska, 1935
 
HarryP: An enjoyable game. After White's 22nd, material is even, but the way it's even is unusual: each side has two Rooks and five Pawns, Black has a Queen, and White has two Bishops and a Knight.
 
   May-17-20 Marco Aurelio Zaror Cordeiro vs A Hilverda, 2015
 
HarryP: I'd give a question mark to White's eleventh. Surely better is 11.Bxc6+ Rxc6 12.exd4 cxd4 13.d3
 
   Apr-02-20 Botvinnik vs Capablanca, 1938 (replies)
 
HarryP: 16.Rae1 thrills my mind; 30.Ba3 thrills my soul.
 
   Feb-17-20 Hebden vs N Davies, 1983
 
HarryP: 15... Bd6 is poor. Better is 15... Ng4. Then 16.Ne4 Bc7 is strong for Black.
 
   Feb-08-20 Myagmarsuren vs Bisguier, 1971
 
HarryP: A very pleasing finis.
 
   Feb-07-20 Tal vs B Djurasevic, 1958
 
HarryP: This is quite an interesting ending. johnkr, you ask, "what is the principle by which White wins?" According to P. H. Clarke, this game illustrates "the advantage of the outside majority." He goes on to say, "Other things being equal, the size of the majority is what counts: the ...
 
   Jan-27-20 W Kuppe vs A Brinckmann, 1937
 
HarryP: An interesting and enjoyable game. White's Knight maneuver of g5 to e4 is unusual in a Bird setup because when Black does not move his QP to d5, White usually moves his KP to e4. Black spurns a perpetual check with 29... 0-0.
 
   Jan-27-20 Larsen vs Gligoric, 1966
 
HarryP: Better than 35.a5 is "35.Rg1! Rxc2 (35... Rg7 is met with 36.h4! intending h5) 36.Qh3+ Kg7 37.Qxe6 Kh7 38.Qh3+ Kg7 39.Qf5! and White wins the knight, since 39... Kh6 is met with 40.Qg5+ Kh7 41.Qh5+ forcing mate" (Cyrus Lakdawala in Bird's Opening Move by Move).
