   Dec-06-19 Nimzowitsch vs Tarrasch, 1914 (replies)
Zephyr10: <gezafan: Possibly Tarrasch saw the faster win but went for the more artistic one.> Went for the more embarrassing one is more like it. Tarrasch hated Nimzo with good reason and here is the come-uppance.
   Sep-26-19 Timman vs Korchnoi, 1976 (replies)
Zephyr10: <<andrea volponi: 33Re2! Kxc4 -Rxe5 fxe5 -Ke2 Kc3 -Kd1 =>> 36. ... Kd3 and wins.
   Sep-05-19 Tolush vs Botvinnik, 1945 (replies)
Zephyr10: To the extent this game may have been brilliant, it shows how much the chess world, and of course Botvinnik himself, was robbed of his prime years by WWII. Let's not forget how on the eve of that conflict he beat Capablanca in an all-time classic, and, playing black, held Alekhine ...
   Jul-05-19 J McConnell vs Morphy, 1850 (replies)
Zephyr10: <Phony Benoni: Obviously Morphy was not comfortable playing the French, and wanted to get it over with as soon as possible.> lol!
   Jul-02-19 Anand vs Ivanchuk, 2009
Zephyr10: What two beautiful moves!
   Dec-30-18 A Evenson vs Alekhine, 1916
Zephyr10: I don't know why, but there's something that strikes me as ponderous in Alekhine's play in this game, while the very similar performance by Smyslov in Smyslov vs Polugaevsky, 1970 , in my opinion, simply sparkles!
   Aug-16-17 Colle vs J J G Delvaux, 1929 (replies)
Zephyr10: Why is this game not in Chessbase's giant database?!
   May-16-17 Nimzowitsch vs Salwe, 1911
Zephyr10: "RookFile: If Nimzo was alive today I'd hire him as director of marketing for my company." Indeed, I don't know if a greater proclamation of chess genius has ever been made on account of the win of a SINGLE PAWN. ;-)
   Mar-21-17 Reshevsky vs Botvinnik, 1948 (replies)
Zephyr10: Benzol: This is the correct game score. I'd like to think so, as 10. Bd2 just looks better than 10. Kd2, but ... 1) as Surena pointed out, 21. Rc1 doesn't make sense, ... the alternate score's move (the only other different move from this score) is 21. Ke1, which makes more ...
   Jun-05-16 Lilienthal vs B H Wood, 1946
Zephyr10: @wolfmaster, Wood didn't give up a piece, he lost it, black was going to be down a piece once white played pawn e3 to e4.
