   Oct-08-09 A Milovic vs T Treppendahl, 2008 (replies)
Regicidal: I fail to see why black resigned here.
   Jul-18-09 Pillsbury vs Marshall, 1894 (replies)
Regicidal: This game is referenced in Hearst and Knott's "Blindfold Chess." McFarland and Company, 2009. Marshall surprised Pillsbury with what appeared to be a novice move at 5. ...e5!
   Dec-18-08 E Terpugov vs S Selivanovsky, 1959 (replies)
Regicidal: The King definitely went for a stroll on this one. Very precise play.
   Jun-28-07 Larry Evans vs E Paoli, 1967
Regicidal: Doh! The fork reigns supreme.
   Jun-13-07 M Houska vs R Churm, 1999
Regicidal: The boomerang movement of white's black bishop (19-22) is impressive. Someday I might push my mind to work like an accurate pinball machine. Sheesh...
   Jun-03-07 Tartakower vs Reti, 1919 (replies)
Regicidal: An admirable defense by Black. B4 has been a La Brea Tar Pit for White, but Tartakower used it to great effect on the Queen side.
   May-02-07 Bisguier vs Bronstein, 1955 (replies)
Regicidal: Throwing the pawn doors open to the white king by move 7 seems like a bad gambit payoff. Bisguier seems to have recovered, however, and the resignation at move 31 comes as a surprise.
   Apr-15-07 Alekhine vs I Rabinovich, 1925 (replies)
Regicidal: Alekhine the Laser. :) 3...Ng4 looks flakey.
   Apr-10-07 Schlechter vs Prokes, 1908 (replies)
Regicidal: The 9. ...h6 is the Smyslov variant that comes into vogue with the versatile Russian baritone in the '60s. There are two other Tal-Smyslov games that use this RL variant, both with 9. ...h6. Interesting that it is listed here as a dubious move.
   Apr-08-07 Sachs vs D Gedult, 1971 (replies)
Regicidal: Laying one's self open to a bishop fork... happens to the best of us. Gedult was so fixated on F7 that the white bishop diagonal eluded him. The old warning of "knight on the rim, lookin' for a trim" didn't apply here to black.
