   Jan-12-21 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985
Plaskett: Kasparov pointed out to me that the notorious 12 Be3! refutation Karpov sprang on van der Wiel (a game in which John actually later had some winning chances!) could be countered by12...Bxe3 13 Qa4+ Bd7!? 14 Qxb4 Qb6 after which he is not convinced black is lost.
   Nov-26-20 Miles vs Sax, 1980
Plaskett: Strangely enough, only yesterday evening I played through a whole tranche of games between Miles and Sax here at ! The above, with which I was familiar - and indeed witnessed as it was played - was not one of those.
   Sep-06-20 J M Hodgson vs Flear, 1988 (replies)
Plaskett: What a pile of steaming @#$%e!
   May-06-20 Korchnoi vs Timman, 1980
Plaskett: Many errors...but, for all that, a great fight,
   Apr-04-20 Shirov vs Timman, 2004 (replies)
Plaskett: Hard to believe this is a real result. I (idiot that I am) drew Q vs R against Hebden in a Rapids game at Oviedo, 1993 when I allowed him to pin my Q. I also was so afraid of the ending (and so lazy and ignorant as not to have learned it in the four year interim) that I passed ...
   Apr-04-20 Shirov vs Timman, 1992
Plaskett: A defensive tactical resource such as 26...Bf8! I never saw in any other game.
   Mar-31-20 Short vs Beliavsky, 1997 (replies)
Plaskett: In my book Can You Be A Tactical Chess Genius? I described the final move of this game as "an almost unique tactic" which I found impossible to classify.
   Mar-25-20 Spassky vs R Byrne, 1974
Plaskett: Apropos the comment above from ZonszeinP, when play reached the Rook and e4 Pawn Vs Rook position I was immediately reminded of a critical game from a match between Larsen and Tal which Dvoretsky cites in his manual. Quite interesting handling of the ending before that, though, ...
   Mar-23-20 Vaganian vs Psakhis, 2002
Plaskett: What a game!
   Feb-20-20 Plaskett vs Nunn, 1982 (replies)
Plaskett: I will never forget the look on Nunnīs face after my 47th move.
