   Jan-04-21 D Anton Guijarro vs A Franco, 2011
 
kereru: upside down rooks are not acceptable according to FIDE rules. If you don't have at least 2 spare sets on hand though you're not running your tournament very well.
 
   Dec-27-20 Castellvi vs Vinyoles, 1475
 
kereru: It's not clear what castling rules they were using, almost certainly not the modern ones.
 
   Nov-14-20 E Walther vs Fischer, 1959 (replies)
 
kereru: It really isn't intuitively obvious that 54.b4! is the only winning move. As usual Fischer's analysis holds up to engine scrutiny.
 
   Sep-17-20 O Chajes vs Capablanca, 1916 (replies)
 
kereru: Capa sacced the queen the wrong way. If 24...Ne7!? White probably shouldn't take the queen but few would be able to resist it at the board. If 25.hxg6+ Rxg6 26.Rxh6+ Kxh6 27.Nf5+ Nxf5 28.Qxb4 Bc6 29.g3 Kg7! 30.Kf1 Bf3! 31.Ke1 Rh6 wins for Black. (-4.7 stockfish) This idea doesn't ...
 
   Aug-25-20 T Bowdler vs Philidor, 1783
 
kereru: @Petrosianic I'm interested in that too. Apparently the Oxford Encyclopedia of Chess Games includes a drawn game from 1750 but I haven't been able to confirm this. Draws were extremely rare in the early days and only happened in greatly simplified endgames. It is only quite recently ...
 
   Aug-24-20 Olga Kalinina
 
kereru: Olga Baby, what a great name
 
   Jul-25-20 Tal vs Benko, 1959
 
kereru: They didn't have Elo ratings back then so there was really no motivation for Tal to drag the game out when he only needed a draw.
 
   Jun-09-20 Hebden vs Nunn, 1982 (replies)
 
kereru: Interesting that white turns down the queen sac here (15.Nf6+), I guess black has more than enough compensation.
 
   Jun-09-20 M Sisniega vs Groszpeter, 1977
 
kereru: 10.Be3! was an important TN in this game, Sisniega was coached well.
 
   Feb-08-20 I Hatem (replies)
 
kereru: Old white men who think we should give a damn what they think about anything. Move over, you've had your turn, and you screwed it up.
