   Dec-05-22 Shamkovich vs S D Brown, 1980
kerpa: That should be 17.. exf4 etc
   Nov-19-22 Nimzowitsch vs P S Leonhardt, 1911
kerpa: I'm going through My System - this is Game #16. Nimzowitsch used this game to show that putting the question to a pinning Bishop (ie following up 8. h3 with g4) depended on proper timing, and needed compensation for "disorganizing" the King's pawn protection. 9. g4? because Nxg4 ...

kerpa: Jeremy Silman uses 12 Ba6 to illustrate blockade - in this case of the weak a6 pawn (Complete Book of Chess Strategy, diagram 172). It's a fine book for newbies like myself.
   May-17-22 Smyslov vs K Langeweg, 1981 (replies)
kerpa: Move 30 is position 80 in Thomas Engqvist's fine book 300 Most Important Chess Positions, section on Bishop maneuvers

   Dec-18-21 Schlechter vs W John, 1905
kerpa: This game is beautifully explained with great clarity by Fred Reinfeld in Chess Review March 1943 p. 89 - 91. It is Part Two of Chess Openings Made Easy, in which Reinfeld explains openings and also their relationships to middle games on the basis of pawn structures (he called them ...
   Nov-16-21 R Hart vs B R Watson, 2010
kerpa: GM Michael Roiz cites this game as showing that 9...c6 "cannot be recommended....10.Qh5! is a finesse which puts Black's 9th move out of business." Necessary is 9...Qh4! - "This move may appear artificial but it serves an important purpose in limiting White's activity on the kingside ...
   Oct-25-21 Tukmakov vs J Gallagher, 1999
kerpa: mentioned in notes to Tukmakov v Kozul 2000 by Kuljasevic in his 2021 How to study chess on your own.
   Oct-22-21 P K Wells vs Shirov, 2006
kerpa: In The Art of Planning in Chess Move by Move, Neil McDonald gives as a precursor to this game a similar win for White in the Trompowsky Hodgson v. Vn der Wiel 1994. On p. 17, McDonald gives a great comment on how White won by opening up the position followed by rapid mobilization. ...
