   Jun-22-10 Hamppe vs Meitner, 1872 (replies)
MaltaCross: Kudos to WhiteRook48 and to chess Mater FSR, for their 21 February 2009 comments. To WhiteRook48 for asking that interesting question, and to FSR for his clear and electrifying reply. Bless you both!
   Jun-14-10 I Dmitriev vs J Aagaard, 1993 (replies)
MaltaCross: I have followed the 12...dxc4 line given by wwall, and at the end, Black is still ahead in material by two points (Black is a rook up whilst White has only an extra Bishop, i.e. Black is ahead). The resultant position is no easy win for White by any means! This should have been a
   Aug-25-08 N Diamantopoulos vs K Goutioudi, 2001 (replies)
MaltaCross: Strangely enough though, Black nevertheless fails to avail himself of his castling option, but instead sends his King in the midst of the action during the middlegame! Weird!
   Aug-13-08 I Zakharevich vs V L Ivanov, 1999 (replies)
MaltaCross: It is not clear to me why 7.a4 and not 7.Nxb5 which would have won a pawn! Can someone perhaps clarify whether or not this was an oversight on Igor's part?
   Jul-28-08 R Cvek vs A Jakubiec, 2005 (replies)
MaltaCross: Was this game so really lost that White had to surrender ?!?
   Jul-10-08 J Sicobo vs S Montsho, 1986 (replies)
MaltaCross: <waddayaplay> Or better still the more straightforward move 4.Nxd5!
   Jun-12-08 D Rogozenco vs Ulibin, 1999
MaltaCross: What were the reasons behind this concession of draw? Why did they stop playing?
   Jun-11-08 Murey vs Boleslavsky, 1968 (replies)
MaltaCross: I would appreciate it if someone could point out why both players settled for a draw, instead of battling it out to the end. Was it a lack of fighting spirit?
   Jun-11-08 C Garcia Fernandez vs F Mancebo Ibanez, 2001 (replies)
MaltaCross: <jamaicanNM> But only at the cost of suffering double pawns (Nxf3 --> gxf3)! I still cannot really understand why Black conceded this game.
   Jun-11-08 V Startsev vs S Loeffler, 2007
MaltaCross: <Gilmoy> Yes, that's more understandable now. Thanks.
