   Jan-20-21 R Kempinski vs Epishin, 2001 (replies)
Martin Rattigan: <ToTheDeath> But the 'W' manoeuvre is NOT correct. Philidor made two slips in his analysis in terms of accuracy. The first is by White (in this case) at your move 148. He should play <148.Kg7 Be3 (forced to stop 149.Kh6) 149.Kf6> and Black must waste a move ...
   Dec-04-20 Svidler vs Topalov, 2002
Martin Rattigan: <gambitfan> Good technique, but 2x table a bit dodgy.
   Dec-04-20 Shirov vs Timman, 2004
Martin Rattigan: <numcrun> It's a theoretical win after move 91. Who were you defending against?
   Aug-04-20 Topalov vs Nakamura, 2016
Martin Rattigan: This game terminated with Topolov's move 132, because he had already reached the mandatory 75 move limit and there was no way for Nakamura to win or reset the move counter on his next move, so the position was dead.
   Sep-28-16 R van der Plas vs P Cody, 1996
Martin Rattigan: Interestingly, White has mate in 22 after move 58 so long as he leaves the pawn alone. Just blockading the pawn is usually faster with a backward pawn.
   Apr-04-10 D Gurevich vs R Rowley, 1990
Martin Rattigan: I've just been practicing 2 knights v pawn against Rybka with no EGTB and I think the term "useless" I used above may be have been too strong.
