I am a Dane, born '48. When it comes to tournament chess, I am very much a used-to-be (as in: used to be ELO 2100+, used to be an IA..) - but I still enjoy other people's games. A site like CG is ideal in this respect.

   Mar-18-20 Kholmov vs Polugaevsky, 1980 (replies)
 
erixn: In the final position, on (28.Nd4) Rxd6 29. Nb5 wins easily enough, but 28.-,Ra6 offers White the chance to blow it: 29.Rxc5? Rxc5 30.Qxc5 Qxc5 31.Rxc5 Rxd6 and the N is lost due to W's weak back rank. Instead, 29.Nb5 once more does the trick.

erixn: @AnEnglishman: Well, to me the position after 67.Kxf4 DOES look like a stalemate (though I did have to remind myself that the black pawns move DOWN the board!), @alwazir: I agree, that the last possible draw by repetition was with W playing 74.Nd3 - at least in the "old" FIDE rules; I
 
   Feb-16-20 J Sunyer vs R Domenech, 1934
 
erixn: Looks like 4.-,is a notational error... why doesn't White simply take the e5 pawn? Instead, 4.-,f6 looks perfectly reasonable!
 
   Jun-04-19 Delarochette vs J Negro, 1983 (replies)
 
erixn: That 5.Nd5 looks a lot like a clerical mishap (not uncommon in pre-computer days). - My guess is White "thought" Black had played 1.-c5, when 2.d3 d5 3.Nc3 dxe4 4.dxe4 Qc7 5.Nd5 makes sense. - On the other hand, I don't quite understand why Black didn't resign immediately when he ...
 
   Apr-03-19 B Steinthorsson vs S Danielsson, 2018 (replies)
 
erixn: How can this be 1-0 ? Black is a piece + 2P up, 36.Bxg2 Kxd7 simplifies to a winning position, and 36. K any is mate in 2.
 
   Mar-06-19 A Moiseenko vs Yusupov, 2010 (replies)
 
erixn: On 24..Be3 25.Rxc8+ Kg7 it seems to me White may try 26.Nd2!?, when 26...Rxd2 allows 27.Rg8+ Kxg8 28.Qa8+ Kg7 29.fxe3! when Pg2 is protected or (27.Rg8+) Kh6 30.Qxf7 protecting Pf2. And similarly if QxN. - I don't see any immediate mates, although Black's attack may still be ...

erixn: @An Englishman: I believe that on 32.fxe5 the best response is 32.-f4+ discovering check as well as threatening Qxg3mate.
 
   Jan-26-19 M Gurevich vs N Pert, 2007 (replies)
 
erixn: I don't know about time control in this tournament... but for a GM to be missing 59.Qe4+ looks odd (he seems to be preparing just that with his preceding moves)
 
   Jan-04-19 Wade vs A G Shoebridge, 1945 (replies)
 
erixn: I thought 22.Ng5+ too - at first. But I couldn't see my way through 22.-, Kg6.
 
   Dec-23-17 Smyslov vs J H Donner, 1967 (replies)
 
erixn: Cheapo: What about (16 b4 Bxb4 17 Nc6 Qc5 18 Nxb4 Qxb4) 19 Qf3 ...? The idea being that when B saves his R (Rb8 or Bd7), then 20 Ba3 - winning the exchange, as Qxa3 loses the Q to 21 Bh7+
