   Sep-06-07 Razuvaev vs L Gutman, 1977 (replies)
kfkcapa2001: <zb2cr: "I decided that 34...♕e4 had to be it even though it did not seem to be particularly forcing after 35.♗d1,♘h4 36.♗f3,♘xf3+..."> 34...♕e4 is quite forcing (though 34...♘e3 is more so). But Black must continue not ...
   Aug-04-07 Bogoljubov vs Capablanca, 1928 (replies)
kfkcapa2001: Certainly no equal of Capablanca, Bogoljubov was no slouch either; he won the tournament this game was played in (not Capa). Also, the analyses of GM Fine and Reinfeld show many fine points in his play, for example, Bogoljubov vs Alekhine, 1929 . Ingenuity in drawing Capablanca ...
   Aug-03-07 Wojtkiewicz vs Drasko, 1988
kfkcapa2001: I like the French and its wins. This game's punches and counter-punches are fun to watch. But the win rings hollow as White falls into the trap with 30.Rxh7. Instead 30.Qd8 or even Rd8 leaves White on top: e.g. 30.♖d8,♕f4+ 31.♔d1,♕f1+ ...
   Jul-20-07 La Bourdonnais vs McDonnell, 1834 (replies)
kfkcapa2001: An amazing Q-sac for only two minor pieces and position. GM Fine in The World's Great Chess Games says it's the FIRST great immortal game of chess. That's not a stretch when we recall that Anderssen's Immortal Game came over twenty years later. Also, the modern gem R Toran ...
   Jul-20-07 Marshall vs Rubinstein, 1908 (replies)
kfkcapa2001: <Computer chess guy: If White takes the other rook . . . Black has nothing better than a draw. . .> After 38.♔xf3,♖f8+ 39.♔g2 (weaker is 39.♔g3,♕e4 40.♖f1,♖f3+ 41.♔h2,♕xg4 42.♘g3,♔f7! and there is no defense
   Jul-12-07 J Kaplan vs Bronstein, 1975 (replies)
kfkcapa2001: A game of ironies: a French Defense that from move eleven seems like an open game with open lines and piece activity (I bet White wanted more of that for his side); an "exposed" Black k-side with open g-file and c3-h8 diagonals that bests White's "secure" q-side; and an all too ...
   Jun-22-07 Flohr vs P Frydman, 1934 (replies)
kfkcapa2001: Apparently such simple, methodical buildup for the breakthrough and the kingside attack, yet with plenty of finesse. Timing is the key: the right move AT the right time. And how those knights jump around! Earlier they fight for the center, later it's all positioning for the ...
   Jun-22-07 O Jakobsen vs Petrosian, 1983
kfkcapa2001: Petrosian had a fondness for knights yet here must play B vs. N in the endgame. White certainly got his money's worth out of the N to draw.
