   Nov-22-21 Waitzkin vs Shabalov, 1993 (replies)
TheBish: <Tomlinsky>: You mean IM Waitzkin. He never attained the GM title.
   Nov-03-21 Tiviakov vs Ponomariov, 2001
TheBish: <kdogphs: Rg8!! We call this a skewer kids!!!> <gawain: Queens and rooks, knight checks and a g-file skewer. Like yesterday. Only easier?> Why is 24...Rg8 being called a skewer? It's a pin! If the positions of the white king and queen were reversed, it would be a skewer.
   Oct-30-21 D Gurevich vs Seirawan, 2003 (replies)
TheBish: Nice game and finish by Seirawan. He doesn't have to worry about the pawn queening because he's so far ahead in material, he can give up an exchange. And 44. fxe5 is answered by 44...Nf2+ 45. Kg1 Rd1+ 46. Kh2 Ng4#, or 45. Kh2 Ng4+, winning the queen.
   Oct-30-21 Lputian vs Gulko, 1982 (replies)
TheBish: This can't be right. 26. Rd5??? Must be 26. Rxd7, as 26. Rd5?? is not only illogical, but completely losing. Another reason to use "x" in notation to indicate captures. I will submit a correction slip. Black resigned after 26. Rxd7 Bxf2+ 27. Kf1 because Rxg7# is threatened, and if ...
   Oct-29-21 J Brosnan vs G Grasser, 2013 (replies)
TheBish: Dreadful game. Even many moves by the winner are questionable. George Grasser achieved the National Master title (USCF 2208) before the end of 1991, but dropped significantly when this game was played (rating graph on USCF ratings site - ), ...
   Oct-29-21 Schiffers vs Chigorin, 1897 (replies)
TheBish: I was familiar with the combination, but had forgotten that Chigorin missed it!
   Oct-23-21 A Model vs L Kubbel, 1929 (replies)
TheBish: Black was a little (or a lot) lucky here. 36...Nb6! would have avoided 37. Rxc3 and is winning easily. But after the game continuation (36...Nd6? 37. Rxc3!) White is much better. White starts going down the wrong path with 39. Rc5+? (39. Nh5! is much better), but still should be ...
   Oct-19-21 Waldo L Waters
TheBish: According to these games, Black is OK!!
   Oct-19-21 R Thomas vs R J Waters, 1968 (replies)
TheBish: Interesting game, and great pun! (Based on "Mother" from Pink Floyd.) So many great verses in that song! Some other options (not necessarily relevant to this game): Mother, will they put me in the firing line? Mother, should I build the wall? Mother do you think she's ...
   Oct-19-21 A Tang vs Burke, 2015
TheBish: One of the most amazing finishes to a chess game I've ever seen. That said, it wasn't without mistakes as noted above. White erred with 28. Nf2? (28. Ng5! gives Black only a slight advantage according to the engine after 28...Rxg5! 29. Qxg5 Rf8 30. Qh6 e3+ 31. Bf3 Rf7 32. Bxb7 Qxd4)
