   Jul-23-06 Kholmov vs Sveshnikov, 1999 (replies)
 
durnstein: <RandomVisitor> I think jahhaj is right.
 
   Jul-16-06 P McEvan vs G Kito, 1967 (replies)
 
durnstein: <al wazir> I also wondered why not 8 ... gxf3. But I think the answer probably is that it loses the Black pawn on f4, and puts Black in a very passive, underdeveloped position: a) 8 ..... gxf3 9 Bxf3 Ng7 10 Bxf4 and while Black has knight for two pawns in material, he ...

durnstein: (White won't take with the King on 28 ... Rb1+ anyway, of course.)
 
   Jun-04-06 Gulko vs A Kremenietsky, 1982 (replies)
 
durnstein: Nah, doesn't work I guess, because Black just declines to capture on f7.
 
   May-28-06 Kindermann vs Robatsch, 1987 (replies)
 
durnstein: I thought 26. Rg3 was White's winning line. Since Re6 actually can lead to a draw, what do the computer jocks and other analysts say about Rg3?
 
   May-22-06 Chandler vs H Olafsson, 1991 (replies)
 
durnstein: I also like Rxc7, just because that line is more fun to play.

durnstein: <al wazir> Instead of 17 ... dxe4, 17 ... h5. White's knight can't go to g4, and Black safely remains up the exchange.
 
   May-11-06 M Bonch-Osmolovsky vs B Baranov, 1953 (replies)
 
durnstein: Now that's an offer (sacrifice) that Black couldn't refuse. :-)
 
   May-10-06 G Michelakis vs Kotronias, 1996 (replies)
 
durnstein: White may have some compensation, in his ability to go create a passed pawn on the queen side, via Nxa5. 34 ......Bxe4 35 h3 ...Bh4 36 Qd2 ..Bxe1 37 Qxe1..Ng3+ 38 Kh2...Nxf1 39 Qxf1..Bf5 40 Nxa5 and White seems to have some counterplay left. It doesn't seem ...

durnstein: Great analysis, patzer2.
