Motto: Give Pieces a Chance

   Aug-29-22 Polgar vs Short, 1996 (replies)
UnsoundHero: The endgame, where White has to sacrifice the rook for Black's g-pawn, should be drawn.
   Jun-13-22 A Ivanov vs M Rohde, 1989 (replies)
UnsoundHero: At the 1989 US Invitational Championship, when this game was over, Jack Peters was annotating the game to a full room of spectators. Jack was perplexed at 13...Nxb4, sacrificing a piece just to recapture a pawn. Then, Rohde entered the room, and was adamant that his sacrifice ...
   May-09-22 Polgar vs A Grosar, 1991
UnsoundHero: The end of the game doesn't make sense. Did Black lose on time? Black could have simply played 50...hxg4+, leaving White with insufficient mating material. A draw is the proper result. If Black was trying to win with 50...h4, the h pawn is the wrong color of its bishop.
   May-08-22 Polgar vs A Wagner-Michel, 1990
UnsoundHero: Instead of 18...Qd7, Black should at least try 18...Qxe7 19 Qxd5+ Qe6 20 Qxa8+ Rf8 21 Qxa7 Bb6 22 Qxa6? Bxd4+ 23 Nxd4 Qxa6. But instead of 22 Qxa6, simply 22 Qb7 Rb8 23 Rae1 Qd6 24 Qe7 frees the WQ.
   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.
   Oct-29-13 A J Goldsby (replies)
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. ...
