   Feb-25-09 S Gujjelwar vs Sangeet Khule, 2008
RedStarRising: 22. ...g5 was clearly unnecessary.Just go directly for mate with 22. ...Qxe2# As Black obviously overlooked that, so did White After 22. ...g5, White's options are nonetheless non-existent. 23. Qf2, aiming to try and stave off the immediate mating attack, will only result in
   Jan-07-09 M Diesen vs M Rohde, 1976 (replies)
RedStarRising: Maynard5, the move Rg7 would have been a defense of what exactly?? The real threat after 21.Rg3 is White's pressure on Black's f5 pawn, and Black attempts to address that threat with his move 21...Raf8
   Aug-14-08 Steinitz vs A Mongredien, 1862 (replies)
RedStarRising: <Kenkaku: A much faster win was 20. Qxg6+ Kf8 (20...Kh8 21. Qh7#) 21. Bh6+ Rg7 22. Bxg7+ Kg8 23. Bh6+ Kh8 24. Qg7#> 20. Qxg6+?? is catastrophic on all accounts, as it will lead immediately to the loss of White's queen after 20...Kh8 (20...Kf8? 21.Bh6+ Rg7 22. Qxg7#)
   Aug-02-08 A Planinc vs J Tarjan, 1974 (replies)
RedStarRising: <Dr. J: Why not 19 ... Bxe5 to keep a third pawn as compensation?> After 19...Bxg4 20. exd6 Qxd6, Blacks still has a three pawn advantage while also inviting queen exchange. Of course that's reduces the pawn advantage down to two again, but Black has a great attacking ...
   Jul-30-08 Kupchik vs Bogoljubov, 1924 (replies)
RedStarRising: <grasser: My Fritz 11 gives White a winning advantage after 50.bxc5?? Anyone know why, seeing as it is a perpetual?> and <bartolome: 50. bxc5 leads to stalemate. nice> No, 50. bxc5 does not lead to stalemate. As <sallom89> already points out, how could it be,
   Jul-29-08 Greco vs NN, 1620 (replies)
RedStarRising: <MorphyMatt: 5. Bf7?! can't possibly be sound, can it?? or maybe it's only sound against NN ;-D> See C37 in Modern Chess Openings for details. The soundness has been proved in several games, following 5...Kxf7 6. Ne5+, as shown below Instead of 6...Ke6 (clearly the ...
   Jul-25-08 Vidmar vs Maroczy, 1932 (replies)
RedStarRising: <Whitehat1963: What's the follow-up to 32. Nxf5?? I'm sure it's instant death somehow, but I can't see it> and < tpstar: 32. Nxf5!? Rxg2+! 33. Kxg2 Qe4+ 34. Kg1 Qxf5 winning two pieces for a Rook, plus wide open lines toward White's King.> 32. Nxf5? is a critical ...
   Jul-24-08 Kolisch vs Paulsen, 1861 (replies)
RedStarRising: In "K Marx vs Meyer, 1867", White plays 15. Bxg5 and goes on to win the game. Of course 16. Rxf7? is not possible, due to ...Bc4+ (and loss of rook)
   Jul-24-08 Onischuk vs Romanishin, 2003 (replies)
RedStarRising: <samvega: 21..Ra6 defends against Bc4+, a fatal deflection.> and <aw1988: Oh! Good catch.> Where's the "fatal deflection" in the Bc4+ threat? No one has clearly demonstrated that. If, indeed, it constitutes such a fatal deflection, why not prevent it simply with ...
   Jul-21-08 Reshevsky vs A Vasconcellos, 1944 (replies)
RedStarRising: 21. Qh5!, for 21...Bxb7? leads to checkmate in a few moves. 22. Qf7+ Kh6 23. Ng4+ Kg5 24. Qg7+. Now, 1) If 24...Kf5, mate follows in two moves, with 25. Nh6+ Kf4 26. Qg4# 2) If 24...Kf4, mate follows in two moves, with 25. g3 Kf5 26. Nh6#(or 25...Kf3 26. Re3#) ...
