   Dec-03-14 P H Nielsen vs Sadvakasov, 2002 (replies)
Tim Delaney: <morphynoman2: Against 24... Ne7 the nice move is 25. Rc8+!> Yes, much nicer than the prosaic Re1.
   Dec-01-14 I A Zaitsev vs NN, 1970 (replies)
Tim Delaney: 12. Bb5 is an amazing move that Zeitsev must have seen earlier. Whether it is captured or not, White aims to play Qb7. But maybe Black can swallow his pride and play 12...Rb8? (or better yet, 11...Rb8) In any case white seems to have adequate compensation for the pawn.
   Nov-25-14 X Zhao vs V Ramos Gazola, 2010 (replies)
Tim Delaney: <Ratt Boy: Move 37, White to move, might be a good Tuesday puzzle.> As a puzzle, it's flawed because white can win in several ways. For example, 37. h5 Ke6 38. h6 Kf7 39 h7! Bg7 40 Rg3 when black's bishop is rooted to g7, lest Rg8, and the king is rooted to defending the ...

Tim Delaney: Miracle Whip indeed! Really, it would have been a miracle draw. There are lots of cases in chess literature in which the weaker player gets a winning position, yet manages only a draw. This game is a real tragedy.
   Nov-06-14 I Bilek vs Fischer, 1962 (replies)
Tim Delaney: White's attack is spent, and there is nothing left to do. It's the chess equivalent of rope-a-dope. The Black rook appears to be imprisoned, but in reality is ideally positioned behind a remote passed pawn. White's e pawn cannot advance, and Black easily controls the white ...
   Nov-03-14 Kasparov vs Short, 1986 (replies)
Tim Delaney: The quiet move, 26.g3 is laced with venom. What can Black do about the advance h4 and h5? At first, 26 ... Qf7 seems to suffice, because of the attack on f2, but it's a mirage: 27.Nxg5+ hxg5, 28.Qh5+ Kg8, 29.Bxg6 Qxf2+, Kh1 and there are no more checks. White's mate threat then ...
   Nov-01-14 A S Hagen vs R Frick, 2013
Tim Delaney: Why does Black resign here? Obviously, White has the better game, and would be disappointed to merely draw, but surely Black's position has some drawing chances.
   Nov-01-14 M Cebalo vs Vasiukov, 2014 (replies)
Tim Delaney: What I find interesting is Black's seeming determination, starting with his very first move, to fatally weaken his control of e6. Look how many moves he makes to accomplish this "goal"! Of course, White's 12, Qd5! is a stunning move, which <Phony Benoni>, in his wonderful ...
   Oct-25-14 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1978 (replies)
Tim Delaney: There is a forced mate, but it takes a while: 28. Nd8+...Bf5; 29. Qxf5+...Ke7; 30. Qf8+...Kd7; 31. Qxg7+...Kc8 (if Kc6, Rc1+ and mate follows)32. Qg4+!...Kxd8 33. Rf8+...Ke7 34. Qg7+...Ke6 35. Rf6+...Kd5 36. Qg5+...K any 37. Rf3 And mate in just a few. I join many others in ...
   Oct-19-14 Kasparov vs Timman, 1991 (replies)
Tim Delaney: 31...Bxa6 is a very unfortunate blunder. With 31...Nb8, Black will likely draw. The main point is that it clears the way for Bd7 which gets the Bishop out of jail.
