I have been playing for over 25 years. I was an OTB USCF expert and still an A player. I am a CM in correspondence chess. Keres is my favorite player, but my playing style is more like Botvinnik or Nimzovich, though I have far less ability than they did!

   Aug-17-19 Karjakin vs Mamedyarov, 2019 (replies)
WhoKeres: Karjakin should be ashamed! After white's 9th move he had a clear advantage: 2 bishops, ahead in development, and more space. 10. d5 just leads to a bunch of exchanges. Qd2 looks better to me. In any event, I can't imagine Shak holding this position against Tal, Fischer, or ...
   Jul-03-19 S Kosmo vs T Rydstrom, 2016
WhoKeres: Black missed a clear win with 31...Rxe2+, picking up two pieces for a rook. He ended up being lucky to draw.
   Jun-14-19 L Aronson vs Gurgenidze, 1957
WhoKeres: Great king hunt by Aronson showing how difficult it can be to defend with opposite colored bishops and an exposed king.
   Mar-25-19 Bisguier vs Reshevsky, 1970
WhoKeres: A pretty finish by Reshevsky after it appeared that Bisguier had finally equalized. Reshevsky still had a lot of tactical skill in 1970 and obtained a good result in Buenos Aires.
   Dec-31-18 Von Bardeleben vs Pillsbury, 1902 (replies)
WhoKeres: Great fight by both players, with a cute finish by Pillsbury!
   Aug-11-18 G Jones vs T Luther, 2006
WhoKeres: Jones must have been in time trouble as he has a clear advantage in the final position. The middle game tactical battle was sensational!
   Jun-01-18 Seidman vs Ragozin, 1945
WhoKeres: Nice technique from GM Ragozin. He utilized his good knight vs. Seidman's bad bishop and timed the breakthrough on f4 nicely. This game shows the difference in class between a GM and a strong national master.
   Feb-22-18 Breyer vs Janowski, 1913 (replies)
WhoKeres: Beautiful use of the bishop pair by one of the greatest masters of their use...Janowski!
   Dec-20-17 Kiril D Georgiev vs I R Ibragimov, 1998
WhoKeres: Excellent endgame technique and use of the initiative from the opening onward by GM Georgiev.
   Dec-07-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
WhoKeres: It looks to me like the handicap of plying without an opening book hurt Stock fish in this game. There are a number of paths to equality on the black side of Steinitz's attack in the French defense hut Stockfish went astray early on. White's sacrifices and pawn play are impressive!
