   Jan-09-12 T Gavriel vs M Ripari, 2009
 
SBGiffy: Isn't 46. rxg7 a game loser? Just pushing the a pawn seems good to keep the king off the 3rd rank, and if a pawn is taken or pawn pushed to d3 then take the g pawn, and the rook can return to 3rd rank to get a philidor position defense.

SBGiffy: It seems to me 20. Rg3 would of been winning also (threat of Qxh6). Only defence seems to be 20...h5, but then Qg5 is very strong with many winning lines for white.

SBGiffy: if qg5 rg3 saves the piece
 
   Apr-02-08 Harris vs Weeramantry, 1972 (replies)
 
SBGiffy: According to W.'s 'best lessons' book the saving move for white is 16. Be7!. If 16...Qxe7 then 17.Be2 is good for white, and if 16...g5 then 17. Nd5 is winning for white. He stats that the simple 13...Bxf8 gives adequate compensation (based on a correspondence game).

SBGiffy: In his 'Best lessons...' book Weeramantry really criticizes 15. b3, and probably rightly so, but I don't think it should lose outright as long as white plays (the grovelling) 16. Na2 (which isn't discussed unfortunately). This would of preserved the dark squared bishop and prevented
 
   Mar-10-08 Alekhine vs Capablanca, 1927 (replies)
 
SBGiffy: Can someone demonstrate the win after 60... Rxa5? . If rooks are exchanged the black king gets to e8 in time to save the f pawn after which I cannot see how white wins. I've seen another site which actually give the move as 60. Rb2+ which makes more sence to me... black king then ...
 
   Dec-04-07 Anand vs Bareev, 1993 (replies)
 
SBGiffy: What was wrong with 22...dxc4 ? Black's given the chance to make his bad bishop into a pretty good bishop and he turns it down....one of those 'grandmaster' moves I don't understand.
 
   Nov-28-07 Serper vs Nakamura, 2004 (replies)
 
SBGiffy: Anyone put this game up for the daily puzzle? (after black's 81st).
 
   Nov-21-07 Kramnik vs Anand, 2007 (replies)
 
SBGiffy: Maybe 16... g5 is better...immediately making space for the king at the cost of a pawn.
 
   Sep-18-07 Leko vs Kramnik, 2007 (replies)
 
SBGiffy: Surely 24. Qg4 was more lively..at least it threatens Bxh6, with ideas of Rh1 etc. 24. Be3 was definately a copout draw move.
