   May-12-23 Sliwa vs G Stoltz, 1953 (replies)
   Apr-27-23 Najdorf vs Denker, 1996
jimx: @Petrosianic - And also like Maxwell Smart, Najdorf was 86 when this game was played.
   Jan-22-23 Speelman vs Tal, 1985 (replies)
jimx: 11..a6 is basically Tal announcing "I have a devastating plan to destroy you in another 10 moves or so, but I need my knight on c6 to do it." And my response would be "Well there is no way I can figure out or even guess what that could possibly be especially in blitz, but you are Tal ...
   Oct-06-22 Carlsen vs Niemann, 2022 (replies)
jimx: I think CG typo'd a "B" instead of "Ch" in the GoTD title.
   Mar-09-22 Hermann Buehler
jimx: This is Bueler's only game on Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss games like this where the Sausage King of Chicago beat Lasker.
   Dec-18-21 H Mattison vs R Millers, 1926
jimx: This game can be put into the book "Blundering your way into a Castle 101".
   Dec-22-17 Alekhine vs W Lamb, 1929 (replies)
jimx: I never expected to see a "castling into it" game by Alekhine.
   Nov-28-17 R Slade vs D V Hooper, 1947 (replies)
jimx: I somehow knew that the dubious 8.Kh1 would be white's downfall, but I did not foresee how concisely!
   Apr-02-17 A Sokolov vs Salov, 1983 (replies)
jimx: Crafty found this forced mate in 8 after 28. Bg7 instead of Rg7. 28. Bg7 Qf5 29. Nf6+ Qxf6 30. Bxf6 Re8 31. Qe2 Nd3+ 32. cxd3 Rc8+ 33. Kd2 Rc2+ 34. Kxc2 Rxh2 35. Re8+ Kf7 36. Qe7# 28. Rg7 was still probably the better move though, since it led to black resigning in 2 moves :)
   Jan-03-17 T Mauwa vs R Cecchetti, 1996 (replies)
jimx: As mig55 said, move 26.Qxf6 should be the real end of the game. It is kind of absurd to discuss the tactics of what would or could have won the game on move 34 after the stupefying blunders of 25...Qf6 and 26.Qd2.
