   Apr-13-10 K Vygodchikov vs Alekhine, 1910 (replies)
MikedaSnipe: I found that yukovics annotations of this game were pretty bad (art of attack). He dubiously writes that c4/c5 was a bad plan, and he doesn't mention the far superior Nxc8 (I hope he doesn't think c4/c5 is dubious because he didn't see Nxc8). This may not support the type of ...
   Jun-10-09 Capablanca vs Tartakower, 1924 (replies)
MikedaSnipe: I am wondering why from move 17 on why tartakower never bothered to play c5. Is there a problem with this move? To me it seemed like an excellent way to leave capablanca without any ways to advance his pawns. Yes I know everyone is looking at the endgame, but do you mind looking
   May-26-09 I Jelen vs Larsen, 1977 (replies)
MikedaSnipe: First I went "What's with the crazy opening?" Then I went "Oh it's bent larsen."
   May-08-09 Kupreichik vs N Rashkovsky, 1986 (replies)
MikedaSnipe: I'm a man that likes to exploit weaknesses, and I think 18... g6 weakens f6. Here's an idea - 19. Rh3 eying a mate/attack on the knight with Qh4. Expose the square to the f rook with fxg6/fxe6 if white allows, and just overall pound on the square.
   May-07-09 Tal vs Leonov, 1949 (replies)
MikedaSnipe: I found this game and worked out the tactics for an hour before I finally found every winning line. Tal is just ridiculous. Even when I error checked with a computer it took it about 30 seconds to calculate that the rook shouldn't be taken (couldn't see Bxh7+)
   May-04-09 Kasparov vs Turbostar, 1985
MikedaSnipe: 15. Qe2?? was a blunder 15... e5! 16. dxe5 (16. Bb5 Bg4 , a bit messy, but garry will be down in development, king safety, and pawn structure. That knight is taken in many variation by the way) Nxe5 17. Nxe5 (17. Qxe5 ...
   Mar-10-09 A Meek vs Morphy, 1855 (replies)
MikedaSnipe: For the patzers 20. Qxh3? Re2+ and then... ----- 21. Kf1 Re1+ 22. Kf2 (or Kg2) Qe2# ----- 21. Kg1 Qe3+ 22. Kf1 Qf2# ----- 21. Kf3 Qe3+ 22. Kg4 h4 23. Kh4 Qe7# (note that white can play Qxh4, but that just loses the queen, and incidentally white will still ...
   Mar-06-09 Short vs J Penrose, 1977
MikedaSnipe: 21... Kxe7? was a large error by john. Axb5! was much more important to keep the knight off the outpost! The whole Bg7 sequence seemed to be wishful thinking by nigel, but it did pay off after that blunder.
   May-29-08 Mikhalchishin vs Pavasovic, 1999 (replies)
MikedaSnipe: after the last move the 3 words that came out of my mouth were "Oh holy ****", I was just cringing for black.
   May-29-08 Srinath Narayanan vs V Ikonnikov, 2006 (replies)
MikedaSnipe: Amazingly I naturally saw Ng3+, and I was thinking of f4 (would have probably played that midgame), but I never would have put them together midgame. Augh! Well at least I solved it in puzzle form.
