   Apr-15-18 Korchnoi vs Kasparov, 1982 (replies)
 
gidguy2000: Can someone explain the downside of 33.Ne4? I was going over the game with Seirwan's "Winning Chess Brilliancies" and he notes that 33.Ra8 is the way to go (and I trust he is right!) But it also seems that 33.Ne4 stops the threats of Qxd7 and Qf2+. Even 33....Qxd5 isn't a ...
 
   Nov-12-05 Ljubojevic vs A Planinc, 1971 (replies)
 
gidguy2000: My first attempt was on this line, but I stopped with it because I didn't see anything coming after 31.Kh1. I even had the thought, "Is there some way to get the queen onto a black square?" And as far as I can tell, there's not. Why could't white play 32.Qh5 or Qc2? What's ...
 
   Sep-27-05 Van der Wiel vs Polugaevsky, 1984 (replies)
 
gidguy2000: Doesn't white have the win here with 18. Bxg7? It follows: 18...Bxg7 19.Rg3 with an unstoppable mating threat. Right?
 
   May-28-05 Van der Wiel vs Miralles, 1990 (replies)
 
gidguy2000: I don't understand white's 16.Bd3. I mean, it worked out, but it looks like black could have traded bishops with near equality. Is 16.Rxd5 no good? Thanks for the input. Gideon
 
   May-26-05 Chandler vs A Fernandes, 2001 (replies)
 
gidguy2000: Why does black not take the pawn on c3? I'm sure there's good reason, as 22.Ke1 seems to invite it. But I can't see why black denies the invitation. Ideas? Thanks Gideon
 
   May-15-05 Timman vs Salov, 1991 (replies)
 
gidguy2000: While I missed 47...Ba4!, I'm pretty sure my soultion wins as well. It seems to me that black has all the time in the world to work his king around the 8th rank, nab white's pawn and guide his own to queendom. White simply has no moves. If he goes with is king and everntually ...
 
   May-12-05 Alekhine vs Yates, 1923 (replies)
 
gidguy2000: Oy, I was confused and thought it was black to move (I know it doesn't make sense since white is in check, but.. yeah) Moral: Don't post while tired or insane. Thanks for settin' me straight
 
   Apr-20-05 Portisch vs Petrosian, 1967 (replies)
 
gidguy2000: While this final position white clearly is about to rip apart black's king, I'm not exactly sure what the line is. Can someone lay out the checkmate here? Thanks. Gideon

gidguy2000: Hi all. I've recently become quite addicted to this site... I don't think I've missed a daily game, puzzle, or quote in around 3 weeks. Anyway, after looking at so much analysis, I'm thinking about getting an engine myself- like Fritz or Junior. Reccomendations? I'm an alright ...
 
   Apr-13-05 Renate Schmidt vs R Solice, 1993 (replies)
 
gidguy2000: To me it looks like Black should win this endgame until black plays 55...g4? Black had white's pawns covered, and by undoubling white's pawns, allows for a passed pawn. The rook should be vastly superior to the bishop, should it not?
