   Aug-01-11 Seirawan vs Judit Polgar, 2011 (replies)
hankm: Fun game! It's nice to see that Seirawan can still compete with the world's top players even after his brief retirement.
   May-03-11 Petrosian vs Aronin, 1961 (replies)
hankm: This game demonstrates the weird, almost bizzarre, beauty of Petrosian's play. A personal favorite of mine, this game features my favorite player playing one of my favorite openings! (Though admittedly, the annotations of Chernev don't add a whole lot.)
   Mar-08-11 P Romanovsky vs Bronstein, 1945
hankm: A nice game. Notice that while it appears that black is able to fork with 21...f4, white can counter with 22. Rxe3 fxg3 23. Rc6!, piling up on the pinned knight.
   Jan-29-11 M Mukhitdinov vs Petrosian, 1951 (replies)
hankm: ...Bf6 is strong, but there is also something to be said for 28... Rxf1+ 29. Rxf1 Qd1.
   Jun-27-10 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1937 (replies)
hankm: Great game. These are some of the best annotations I have seen in a while...
   Jun-09-10 NN vs E Fossan, 1991 (replies)
hankm: He lost to one of the oldest opening tricks in the book! Rule number one on playing the Russian/Petrov defense: if you don't know this trap, you shouldn't play the defense.
   Jun-08-10 Kasparov vs NN, 2010 (replies)
hankm: Does anyone know why black plays 10... Kf8 instead of castling? It seems a little odd, even for an NN...
   May-09-10 Anand - Topalov World Championship Match (2010) (replies)
hankm: Black is looking pretty good here... But nevertheless, I admire Anand for trying something besides 'd4' which has been played by white in some form in every single game...
   Apr-26-10 Felix Fischer vs Gruenfeld, 1923 (replies)
hankm: d3 seems like such a passive way to deal with Alekhine's defence... It locks in the bishop and lets black get away with a very agressive move.
