barefootin: OK, this is a vision problem, since 29...fxe4! obviously just wins a piece.
   Mar-29-06 W Tonoli vs Speelman, 1973 (replies)
barefootin: We've seen a lot of e3-f4's against Black's e5/f5 structure. While that stuffs Black's structure, it's primarily defensive. So going into the full Botvinnik with 6 e4! is finally the correct and most robust response to Black's e5/f5 setup. Without a doubt, White ...

barefootin: Black should play on, of course. Speelman shows excellent vision here, as he also does in his game with Basman from Brighton. One could hardly be wanting of any clearer board sight.
   Mar-29-06 Speelman vs Keene, 1973 (replies)
barefootin: Rather unfortunately for White, 24 Bxg6 Qh2+ 25 Kf1 Qxg2+ 26 Ke2 Qg4+! wins for Black. Speelman may have been initially relying on 24 Bxg6.
   Mar-29-06 A Trangmar vs Speelman, 1972
barefootin: 13...f6 and then immediately 14...f5! is needed, to get counterplay with ...Nef5 (and ...d4) before White plays the maneuver Nd2! (with f3!) stopping this, which he could (and should) have done as early as move 14, rather than 14 Rfd1 (general move). If ever Bh3 ...

barefootin: Pachman was always a fascinating player to me. I must remember to look over his games also.
   Mar-29-06 Speelman vs T K Hemingway, 1972 (replies)
barefootin: This one could certainly make any old time gem collection. This is quite a lineup of brilliant players that Speelman is cutting his Chess teeth on!
   Mar-29-06 J Littlewood vs Speelman, 1972
barefootin: 18 Rxe6!! Very nice.
   Mar-29-06 Speelman vs R B Edwards, 1972
barefootin: 21? Rather than trading an active for a passive piece, 21 Qa6! (idea Rb7, and then Qxa7) looks very reasonable.
   Mar-29-06 J S Emsley vs Speelman, 1972
barefootin: Studying his endgames as well, at such a young age? Most impressive...
