   Nov-09-20 Gufeld vs Tal, 1959 (replies)
erniecohen: <DrGridlock> Actually, your position is very very winning, because the black ♔ is cut off from the pawns and the White ♔ is not. This will soon be K+R+3P vs K+R.
   Sep-06-20 Kramnik vs Karpov, 1997 (replies)
erniecohen: Black looks fine after 30...♘d5
   May-16-20 Capablanca vs Manhattan, 1931
erniecohen: <patzer2: Perhaps 39. Nf3 a5! 40. e4 Bxf3+ 41. Kxf3 Kd3 42. Kg3 Kxe4 43. Kxh3 Kf3 44. Kh4 Kxf2 45. Kg4 = (0.00 @ 27 depth, Fritz 8) is enough for the draw.> Yes, but you put the wrong punctuation mark on 39...a5?, which leaves the Q-side pawns vulnerable. The winning move ...
   May-13-20 Akash G vs Caruana, 2013 (replies)
erniecohen: Okay, alternative puzzle. Suppose you take up chess and are invincible (can win every game), but nobody likes you so nobody will do you any favors. (So highly-ranked players won't play you unless they have to, and sponsors won't select you into the world cup or into the top tier ...
   May-11-20 Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1996
erniecohen: <nitsud33>After 35...♕xf7, white wins with 36.♕d8+ ♔g7 37.♖xf7+ ♔xf7 38.♕d5+ ♔e7 39.♕xf3 ♘e4 40.♕d3 .
   May-10-20 O H Labone vs Lasker, 1898
erniecohen: 31...gxf4 wins immediately.
   May-06-20 Lenderman vs Samuel Herring, 2015 (replies)
erniecohen: I think 37... a5, followed by 38... ♖d3 draws. Nevertheless, facing a 900 point disparity in rapid rating, Herring has nothing to be ashamed of here.
   May-05-20 Reti vs K Havasi, 1912 (replies)
erniecohen: <7he5haman: How does Black continue after 28.Qf1, guarding both c4 and f3?> He loses, e.g. 28...hxg3 29.hxg3 ♗c6 30.b5 ♗e8 31.♖b8 ♕f7 32. ♗g5, and Black will eventually have to give up the exchange for counterplay.
   May-02-20 T Ernst vs Kouatly, 1984 (replies)
erniecohen: Stockfish actually thinks this is a pretty hard problem; it doesn't consider ♗h7+ the best move until 20/30. For comparison, it finds the "Game of the Century" move ♗e6 on 10/17.
   Apr-10-20 S P Sethuraman vs Zhou Jianchao, 2017 (replies)
erniecohen: After 21.♘c4 ♗e6 22.♖d1 ♗xc4 23.♖xd3 ♗xd3 24.♖g1 is no better than even. So you get credit for the POD only if you find the exchange sac 24.f4.
