   Sep-20-19 Suttles vs Benko, 1974 (replies)
SpamIAm: Although it is in a losing effort, Benko also deserves credit for creativity for the way he won back his pawn with the dark-squared bishop (Bg7-Bxe5-Bc7-Bxa5).
   Sep-14-19 Nimzowitsch vs Tarrasch, 1914 (replies)
SpamIAm: <spazzky>, 28...Qg3+ (as in the notes), was even faster, eg 29.Kd2 Qf2+ 30.Kd1 Qe2#.
   Sep-13-19 Hromadka vs Tarrasch, 1922 (replies)
SpamIAm: Thank you, <Jonathan Sarfati>. Re your comment about over-analyzing, I've noticed some players will post every single move in a variation, even ridiculous lines where the losing side throws away both rooks and the queen in a futile attempt to avoid inevitable mate (but ...
   Aug-30-19 Egor Filipets vs A G Aleksandrov, 2018 (replies)
SpamIAm: A nice example of how opposite-colored bishops, while often producing a drawish position in the endgame, often have the reverse effect in the middlegame. White was unable to counter black's dominance on the dark squares.
   Aug-23-19 Kavalek vs Matulovic, 1966 (replies)
SpamIAm: Many of us woodpushers would've been content with 30.Qg5+, simplifying to a won endgame by exchanging the queens off. Kavalek's excellent 30.Be4! not only wins another pawn but pretty much ends the game right there as black's king ends up diagonally dazzled. When you see a good move
   Aug-12-19 Tiviakov vs T Roussel-Roozmon, 2009 (replies)
SpamIAm: <patzer2>- Don't you mean 23...Qxc3? Just checking.
   Aug-04-19 Kasimdzhanov vs I Cheparinov, 2009 (replies)
SpamIAm: After 26.Rd7 couldn't black have replied 26...Nxf4? Does white have a knockout punch after 27.Rxf7+ Kg8? Just asking.
   Jul-24-19 Khalifman vs Seirawan, 1991 (replies)
SpamIAm: <Penguincw>, the solution for your puzzle is 1.Rc6.
   Jul-22-19 Kotronias vs N Kalesis, 1994 (replies)
SpamIAm: <CheapobytheDozen>, I guess black avoided 11...c6 because he feared 12.Ng5, after which the threat of 13.Bxh7+ (or Nxh7) forces 13...g6 (or h6), after which 14.Nxe6 fxe6 gains the two bishops for white and saddles himself with a weak e-pawn.
   Jul-17-19 J Garnelis vs S Brunello, 2009 (replies)
SpamIAm: Methinks the losing move was 10.g4.
