   Jun-19-08 Ivanchuk vs Eljanov, 2008 (replies)
 
mezzieh: Black Queen is almost useless.
 
   Jun-19-08 T Halay vs D Laylo, 2004 (replies)
 
mezzieh: Of course 'Darwin's Theory' was an alternative pun as well as 'Darwin lies blow'. When Knight goes from c3 to a4 it must be a combination on enemy Kingside. And when the second Knight goes off the board there must be a Bishop sac in prospect. This time a deadlock in center gave ...
 
   Jun-19-08 Tal vs Miles, 1981 (replies)
 
mezzieh: Well, let's have a look on it again. Hmm... OK, I see some alternatives for Black: 1) 12...a6!? this prepares a pawn sacrifice (13...b5) to deflect White c4 pawn for controlling d5. If this square is going to fall into Black's hands (with ...Nd5 later) Miles will stand quite well, ...
 
   Jun-19-08 S Wong vs N Grinberg, 1976 (replies)
 
mezzieh: This puzzle is easier than it seems to be, as White has to follow one simple plan: a breakthrough on h7 square. 20. Ng5 g5 (no other way to safeguard h7) 21. Bxh5! (ripping open White's path to h7) 21...Kg7 (21...gxh5 22. Qxh5 mates next.) and... well, I went for 22. Bxg6 and I ...
 
   Jun-18-08 Carlsen vs A Volokitin, 2008 (replies)
 
mezzieh: 25. Bc6 Ne5 I think.
 
   Jun-18-08 Keres vs E E Book, 1952 (replies)
 
mezzieh: "That's not fair! He plays Book moves straight to the end!" - Keres thought for a while and then resigned.
 
   Jun-18-08 Svidler vs Karjakin, 2007 (replies)
 
mezzieh: 20. gxf6 Rb4! and White must either give up his Queen or get mated.
 
   Jun-18-08 Kasparov vs Piket, 1995 (replies)
 
mezzieh: Helios727: 5...Nxb4 6. c3 Nc6 7. d4 and White gets what they played for in Evans Gambit - a commanding center.
 
   Jun-18-08 Stein vs Spassky, 1964 (replies)
 
mezzieh: Modern players should learn how to play fighting chess even if it ends up drawn. Both Stein and Spassky were brave chess warriors and I think it was only matter of luck, that Spassky clinched World Championship and Stein not.
 
   Jun-18-08 La Bourdonnais vs McDonnell, 1834 (replies)
 
mezzieh: Excuse me gentlemen, but I have a problem. I remember Botvinnik (White) played quite a good game against guy who also left his Knight on b6 useless and never managed to activate it. Can anyone post here a link to this game? Thanks in advance.
