   Sep-18-09 Jude Acers (replies)
Some call me Tim: Jude had some great moments in Fischer's 1964 simul tour, recounted in John Donaldson's "A Legend on the Road." At the time Acers was a student at LSU and reportedly he and Bobby had two individual blitz games that Fischer won, outside the simuls. Acers's rendition of a ...
   Sep-17-09 Stein vs V Lepeshkin, 1965 (replies)
Some call me Tim: 22...d6 was a lemon. Black played 20...Ra6 for a good reason then blocked the rook's defense of f6 and enabled the combo. White still would have had a great position but Nh6 would not have worked.
   May-28-09 Boris Spassky (replies)
Some call me Tim: Incidentally to the references to the "big red book" of Spassky's games. First, Gligoric referred to a 355-game collection of Spassky games "edited by Dr. Wilhagen in Hamburg." Cafferty's book is not mentioned here or elsewhere. Second, there is the famous story of Bob Wade
   May-20-09 M Gurevich vs R Ovetchkin, 2007 (replies)
Some call me Tim: To those who wonder why a strong GM like Gurevich could not see what we find in a minute: We all have to remember we are dealing with a puzzle, not playing the game over the board. We know there has to be either a check or a block of the d-file otherwise Black has Rd8+ ...
   May-15-09 Timman vs A Sokolov, 1987 (replies)
Some call me Tim: Very clever. I searched for the right combination to trap the Q as I thought that was the theme, but did not find this. The other theme is overloading the Black Q on the B/e7 which curiously I also explored but could not find the right sequence.
   May-12-09 A Reggio vs Chigorin, 1901 (replies)
Some call me Tim: The mind is a funny thing...this one took me about a minute and a half because I tried the pin and uncovering of the Q second after trying ...Qh3+ and finding nothing forcing after Kg1. Yet Rxf4 seems a longshot even to consider. Pin to win!
   May-09-09 L Milman vs J Fang, 2005 (replies)
Some call me Tim: Glad everyone found this so simple. I guess I am behind as I truly find this configuration amazing and difficult to envision. The vaunted move 25. Qg4 was far easier to find for me.
   Apr-01-09 NN vs G Abrahams, 1929 (replies)
Some call me Tim: I did not catch this one but not because I misunderstood the castling rule. In fact I'm astonished that GMs reportedly were in the dark. But castling to win on the spot is not a usual theme unless you are Morphy. Most (if not all) who got this fast said they have seen this ...
   Mar-31-09 Kudrin vs M Wilder, 1987 (replies)
Some call me Tim: 26. Rf7 is better, no doubt. But after 26...Qxf7 27. Qxf7 White has no attack left, at least not yet, and Black is roughly equal in material. Black now has 27...Ne3 which mixes it up. Maybe White can win this but it will take some effort. Certainly the forced draw is a ...
   Mar-25-09 V Malakhatko vs Timoshenko, 2003 (replies)
Some call me Tim: <RandomVisitor> If 23.f3 Nh5 24.Na5 Qf6 25.Nxb7 Ng3+ 26.Kg1 Qh4 wins. If White plays the relatively better 24.Bf2 then 24...Qg6 seems to win in the variations I played out.
