   Jun-13-20 Vogt vs Andersson, 1975 (replies)
amaurobius: nummerzwei - that line was recommended by Stean in the original 1978 edition. In the 2002 algebraic edition the refutation is pointed out and Andersson's method is stated to be correct.
   Nov-25-16 Fischer vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
amaurobius: <Joshka: I posted the pic on Ray's page, this will get settled once and for all :-) Heck even Nigel would know too> Ray has replied on 24 November - he thinks Forintos or possibly Eising.
   Apr-09-16 Korchnoi vs Caruana, 2008
amaurobius: <RKnight> White plays 39 Qf3 and black has the choice of losing either the exchange on d5 or his N on c6.
   Mar-24-16 Y Yu vs McShane, 2015
amaurobius: Short of time, Luke missed 37 ...Re8 which wins easily as white can only defend against the combined threats of RxQ, Bd5 and b2 by giving up his N on e7. That apart, good to see Luke playing well.
   Mar-06-16 Svidler vs Carlsen, 2014
amaurobius: <ralph46> If black plays 39 Nxg2 in this line then white can trap the black N with Nh3 and marches in with his K and captures it. Even without that I can't see why white should have resigned and that's why IMO PS must have lost on time.
   Mar-06-16 Schlechter vs Lasker, 1910 (replies)
amaurobius: <AnalyzeThis> Reference your post of Jan-29-11, the book you are thinking of is Hans Kmoch's Rubinstein's Chess Masterpieces (Game 46).
   Feb-06-16 Torre vs F E Parker, 1924 (replies)
amaurobius: After 30 Rd6, black's best try seems to be Rxd6 maintaining the threat of Rc1+. But white wins with 31 g8=Q+ Kd7 32 Qf7+ Kc6 33 Qe8+ Kb6 34 Qe3 followed by 35 Qxc5 and the f-pawn queens (or if black plays 34 Rxf6 then 35 b4).
   Jul-25-15 Euwe vs Eliskases, 1938
amaurobius: <Mateo> In the (drawn) Keres-Eliskases game you refer to, Keres was the one with two connected passed pawns. As you say, two beautiful rook endings.
   Jun-02-15 Wei Yi vs Ding Liren, 2015 (replies)
amaurobius: <visayanbraindoctor> Thank you. Perhaps I should have put quote marks round "lesser" and "greater".

amaurobius: No recorded games yet in 2013. Is Nadya taking an extended break since she married?
