Used to be about USCF 2250 but haven't played a tournament game in 10 years.

   May-29-21 V F Titenko vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1966
graphvariety: Either 48... Nf2+ or 49...Nf2+ delivers mate in 2. How could Nezh have missed that?
   May-29-21 R Nezhmetdinov vs V Sergievsky, 1966
graphvariety: I don't understand. Black's position stinks but surely he can hold out a bit more after 24... Qxd6 25. Nxd6. I suspect there is an error in the game score and Nezh actually played 23. Rd6, when the threat of Rxg6+ seems to win quickly for White (and 23... Nf6 24. Ne4 1-0 is a ...
   May-27-21 Antoshin vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1961
graphvariety: This cannot be right, even for a Nezh game. Why not 27. Bxb6?
   May-26-21 G Ilivitsky vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1956
graphvariety: White threw the game away with 23. Be7??. But the threat of ...Nxb2 is hard to answer. Maybe 23. a3 Nxa3 24. Rhg1, with the idea 24.... Nc4 24. Be7 Qe8 25. Rxg7 Kxg7 26. Bxf8+ Kxf8 27. f5 to get back some initiative. Black certainly may have improvements to 24.... Nc4.

graphvariety: 22... Qxb2 looks suicidal, but Black may already be busted - what does he do about the threat of Nd5? If 22... Bxd3 23. Nd5 Nb5 24. Nxb6 Nxd4 25. Nxa8. So 22... Rxe3 looks forced: if 23. Nd5!? Re1+ 24. Bf1 Rxf1+ 25. Kxf1 Qa6+ 26. Kg1 Nb5, or 23. Qxe3? Re8, or 23. fxe3 Be6. But ...
   Nov-12-18 Petrosian vs Lutikov, 1959 (replies)
graphvariety: Let me ask a stupid question. What is wrong with 35. fxe4? What does Black have that I'm missing?
   Nov-12-18 J Sefc vs Petrosian, 1957
graphvariety: It's like watching a cat toy with a mouse for a week before finally eating it.
   Oct-29-18 Eliskases vs Stein, 1966 (replies)
graphvariety: White did not show up for this game. Moves like 11. Ng1 are not chess. If you are going to do something abject like 20. Qf1 then you might as well play 21. fxe4 instead of going like a sheep to the slaughter. And if 24. b4 is the best you can come up with then you might as well
   Oct-24-18 R Nezhmetdinov vs Lusikal, 1951 (replies)
graphvariety: You gotta be kidding me. Did this really happen?
   Oct-24-18 R Nezhmetdinov vs Aronin, 1950
graphvariety: @chancho: You probably meant 27... Re7. Then 28. Qh1! looks crushing, as Black seems to have no more than spite checks. E.g., 28... Rxe2+ 29. Kxe2 exf4+ 30. Kd1 Bc2+ 31.Kc1.
