   Jul-08-20 Reshevsky vs Saemisch, 1920 (replies)
kbob: Reshevsky was nine years old here.
   May-29-20 Taimanov vs G Agzamov, 1983
kbob: 17. f4! is a good move with a space advantage for white claims Gligorich in his book on the Nimzo.
   Mar-29-20 Beliavsky vs Polugaevsky, 1979
kbob: Regardless of its true merit, the Polugaevsky variation must have suited Polugaevsky's style very well. From the database I make his record ten wins to two losses.
   Mar-11-20 Karpov vs Unzicker, 1975 (replies)
kbob: Researching the database, I get the impression 13. ... Re8 was very popular until this game, with white usually continuing 14. Ne3. Can we say that Karpov's 4. d5 essentially ended this variation for black?
   Feb-04-20 Gulko vs T Georgadze, 1969
kbob: <GrahamClayton>Taimanov said "White has a material advantage but also has substantial problems developing." I would play the much simpler "copout" variation Tarjan vs A Deze, 1975 which Stockfish seems to like at least as much for white as accepting the sacrifice.
   Dec-14-19 Akobian vs Naiditsch, 2010
kbob: At move 13, I probably would argue that black has the bishop pair on an open board and an IQP target to play against in the ending. With 13. ... Bxe5, Naiditsch seems to be saying "No, don't listen to k-bob, the essence of this endgame is that the white e pawn is over extended and both
   Nov-08-19 Yates vs Alekhine, 1924
kbob: According to Serper ( Nov 4, 2019) this game precipitated an incredible cascade of chess blindness. In his book "International Chess Tournaments in New York 1924 and 1927" Alekhine annotated 5.d4 b5 6.Bb3 Nxd4 7.Nxd4 exd4 8.Qxd4 c5 9.Qd5 Be6 10.Qc6+ Bd7 11.Qd5 Be6(??) as a ...
   Oct-13-19 R Kempinski vs Epishin, 2001 (replies)
kbob: re king sacrificer Is there a technique to drive a king to any corner? Here are some quick impressions that may help. (1) At first, the knight can get in the way, hold it back and use bishop and king to completely conquer the center (2) Notice that B and N screen out the opposing king ...
   Sep-27-19 Bosboom-Lanchava vs C Slingerland, 2000
kbob: My guess it was time pressure and flag fall.
   Sep-21-19 A Lein vs Tal, 1955
kbob: Black had some of the elements of a fortress draw ( i.e. proper pawn guarding rook with king nearby) but the white king is behind the pawn and this guarantees the win.
