   Aug-24-10 Morphy vs J McConnell, 1849 (replies)
 
epiglottis5: I remember Reinfeld's book saying that after 9.gxf3, 9...g3 gives black undeserved counterplay, or something of that nature. Makes sense to me, since Morphy's 9.g3 completely shuts down black's pawn attack on the kingside.
 
   Aug-22-10 Fischer vs J H Donner, 1962 (replies)
 
epiglottis5: Several chess authors noted that instead of 25.Rd4? Fischer should've played 25.Qg3+ Kh7 26.h5 ensuring that the f8 bishop stays out of play for a while.
 
   Dec-27-09 Capablanca vs L Molina Carranza, 1911 (replies)
 
epiglottis5: Since Vukovic's book didn't give analysis for alternatives to 13...Kg6, I tried to analyze them as practice: A) 13...Kh6?? 14.Nxf7+! Rxf7 15.Qxd8 B) 13...Kg8? 14.Qh5 Re8 15.Qxf7+ Kh8 16.Qh5+ Kg8 17.Rad1 Bd7 (17...Nd3 18.Qh7+ wins the knight; 17...Nd7 18.Qf7+ Kh8 19.Nxe6 wins; ...

epiglottis5: This great player gets no respect in the chess books that I own. An overwhelming percentage of his highlighted games have him losing, often by brutal means or as examples of how not to play. For instance: "Chess Strategy" by Edward Lasker: Tartakower vs Burn, 1911 L ...
 
   Aug-08-09 Alekhine vs Yates, 1926 (replies)
 
epiglottis5: I just read GM Timman's modern perspective on this game in a recent "New in Chess" issue. According to him, 24...Nc5 is a fine move providing a good square for the knight, and 27...h5? and 31...Nxd3? are mistakes.
 
   Jun-06-09 Carlos Torre vs Lasker, 1925 (replies)
 
epiglottis5: <syracrophy> Is there analysis for 22...f6? It looks like white can escape with a draw. 22...f6 23.Nc4! Red8 24.Ne3 Qg6 (now white's bishop will be trapped after 25.Qxg6 Nxg6) But white has 25.Bxf6! Qxf6 26.Ng4! followed by Nh6+ with a draw by perpetual check.
 
   Jun-02-09 Marshall vs H E Atkins, 1903 (replies)
 
epiglottis5: 25...Qc5 seems best after 25.b3
 
   Jan-19-09 Karpov vs Browne, 1972 (replies)
 
epiglottis5: According to Karpov, 18.dxc5 dxc5 19.Rcd1 would've been stronger than 18.Rcd1?! Also, 20.c5 is given a ? for giving up the b5 square. (Source: Silman's "How to Reassess Your Chess")
 
   Apr-18-08 K Burger vs P Keglevic, 1977 (replies)
 
epiglottis5: I saw up through 28.h6 Re6 29.Rxe6 Qxc3 but I failed to see 30. Re5!. I only checked 30. Rxg6+ hxg6 31.Qxg6+ Kh8 and white makes no progress.
 
   Jan-30-07 A Wagner-Michel vs Anke Fischer, 1994 (replies)
 
epiglottis5: Bxh7+! allows the queen to get to h6 with a gain of tempo. I initially looked at 15.Qg4 g6 16.Qg5 but then black would play Qd8 and take the pawn if my queen moved to h6.
