   Apr-29-06 S Kagan vs Dzindzichashvili, 1978 (replies)
LivinFree: Perhaps one shouldn't put the microscope on the T.P. phase, but 37 Rxc5 dxc5 38 Qxa5 does clip a rather significant pawn.
   Apr-29-06 S Kagan vs S Webb, 1977
LivinFree: 16 Nxe6! fxe6 17 Rxd7 Kxd7 18 Bd4! trapping the h8-rook. It's easy to criticize 39 c5, which may be right after all, since it restrains the pawns, and 40 Nb6 was available, which is better than 40 Rd7. Remember - Restrain, Blockade, Destroy! Probably it would be hard to ...
   Apr-29-06 S Kagan vs Reshevsky, 1973 (replies)
LivinFree: 17 ab might have been addressed in Reshevsky's book 'The Art of Positional Play'. Not sure, since I've lost that book. However, there is a later game here in Kagan's lineup where Black already has ...b5 in, Kagan then plays a4, and Black responds with ...bxa4, which ...
   Apr-29-06 S Kagan vs K Darga, 1967 (replies)
LivinFree: Nice game by Darga.
   Apr-29-06 S Kagan vs I Polgar, 1966
LivinFree: 30 Qa7? Unfortunate errors... It is after 24 Rc1!, yet White missed 30 Bf1!, cleanly clipping a pawn.
   Apr-29-06 S Kagan vs Kurajica, 1966
LivinFree: Still debating 21 Rxf6! as late as move 34, since Black's play hasn't really refuted it. 34 Bf2? is a blunder, and 34 Rg1 Bf4 35 Qh5+ Bh6 is better.

LivinFree: $6.40 an hour?? For labor that used to command $16.40 an hour?
   Apr-24-06 S Kagan vs Geller, 1973
LivinFree: Nobody's sneaking a peek in 'The Application of Chess Theory' are they? Some of us have been forced to throw that book out... 'She is wild and innocent, enslaved to Love / through all disaster...'
   Apr-24-06 Yanofsky vs S Kagan, 1966 (replies)
LivinFree: Chess the hard way!
   Apr-04-06 D L Rowe vs Keene, 1963 (replies)
LivinFree: With profuse apologies to Raymond Keene for doing this on one of his games, it often takes great patience to answer a newbie's question. But this turned out to be an extremely taxing position, much more complicated than an innocent newbie's question, which is what got my raydar ...
