Motto: Give Pieces a Chance

   May-15-18 R McGuire vs D Edelman, 1987
UnsoundHero: The white bishop doesn't belong on b1. Oh, well. You live and learn.
   Sep-01-14 Gulko vs I Ivanov, 1987
UnsoundHero: Black's attack isn't quite sound. Instead of 21 Bd3, which allows the brilliant 21...Rxf2, White should simply play 21 Bf3, attacking the Qe7 & Bb7. Black must sacrifice the queen, but doesn't get enough for it. Boris Spassky was a guest commentator at the 1987 American Open in ...
   Feb-18-14 R Cardoso vs Fischer, 1957 (replies)
UnsoundHero: 30...Qxa4 looks wrong, de-centralizing the Q. Black is already a pawn up, and needs to take precautions against a possible K-side attack by white. 30...Qd3 looks better.

UnsoundHero: 24...Qxf4 25 Qxf4 and now 25...R on b4 takes Q on f4, and black is the exchange up.
   Sep-02-13 McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834 (replies)
UnsoundHero: Wow, they're both great swashbucklers. Pieces flying all around with reckless abandon.
   Aug-04-13 H van Dongen vs E Wijsman, 2005 (replies)
UnsoundHero: Quite spectacular. After 74 Rdd3 b3 75 Rd2, black appears to be in zugzwang! Any Knight move is met by Rxe4 eyeing Re8. 75...dxe3 is met by Rd8 mate. 75...d3 is met by 75 Rxd3. 75...Rc8 is met by 76 Rxd4 b2 77 Rxc3. And, finally, 75...Rb4 is met by 76 Rxc3 dxc3 77 Rd8 mate. ...
   Jun-30-13 P J Morris vs C G Ward, 1983 (replies)
UnsoundHero: This game is similar to Shamkovich-Vukcevich, 1976. L Shamkovich vs Vukcevich, 1976 Ironically, Black saved a tempo with his QB compared to the Vukcevich game.
   Jun-29-13 Jerome B Hanken (replies)
UnsoundHero: Jerry played in at least 20 straight US Opens. It seemed like he never missed a year.
   Jun-15-13 M Tratatovici vs O Bylino, 2012
UnsoundHero: There's something wrong with the moves of the game. On 21 Nb5 Qxa3, white should play 22 Nxa3.
   May-25-13 C Frick vs Suba, 2012
UnsoundHero: One fascinating line is 33...Ng5 34 hxg5 Bxb4 35 g6 Bxd2 36 g7 Qg4 37 Qd7 Bh6 38 Qd6+ Kb7 39 Qxh6 Qxe2, which is a more opportune moment to capture the N on e2.
