   Nov-24-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
master of defence: Final result: 1-0 Too bad Karjakin, you had a draw in your hands since move 20, but had to screw it up badly like this. 56...Nh6 was the right choice according to engines.

master of defence: For everyone wondering about 33.Ba4, read Eyal's comment above. He did reasonably okay explaining it. And I suppose the purpose of 33.Qc2 was to rule out ...Qf5, when Ba4 is a real threat. Too bad 33...Rb4 looks like an easy equalizer for Black.
   Sep-20-16 Factor vs N Whitaker, 1929 (replies)
master of defence: Nice game full of positional sacrifices by White. But as they say, "The one who blunders last is to blame", in this case, he missed a clear win in the end with 29.d7+! Qxd7 30.Qe1+ Kf8 31.Qxb4+ Ke8 32.Qb8+ Ke7 33.c8=Q.
   Nov-14-14 Helmer vs J Krejcik, 1917 (replies)
master of defence: Nice game, I wonder if the 5...Nxh2!? sac is sound at all, i.e, had White missed a chance to win the game with his piece up? P.S: Black missed a faster mate with 15...Nd4+ 16.Kc1(16.Kc3 Qxc4#) Qf1+ 17.Be1 Qxe1#.

master of defence: 34.Rc1 1-0 by timeout. LOL! ;-)

master of defence: <Next year at this time I'll turn 64, which for a chess player is equivalent to 27 for a Rock Star.> Yeah, makes sense, lol. Funny thing is that both numbers are also cube of 4 & 3, respectively.
   Oct-16-14 O Dementiev vs Dzindzichashvili, 1972 (replies)
master of defence: Position after 61.g6: [DIAGRAM] Notice if it were White to move again, he would have a mate in 4 with 62.Qh7+ Kf8 63.Qh8+ Ke7 64.Bh4+ Nxh4(64...Kd7 65.Qd8#) 65.Rf7#. But anyway, great finish by Dzindzichasvili. 61...Rh1+ 62.Kxh1(Otherwise 62...Rxh5) Nxg3+ and ...

master of defence: You may be indeed correct <perfidious>, given that after 1933, when Adolf Hitler become the 'Führer', Dr. Platz has moved from Germany to United States, as indicates his biography here. But looking at Hans Platz's profile here, he also doesn't have the game from 1972
