   Feb-14-07 V Ciocaltea vs Unzicker, 1956
morphyvsfischer: <Resignation Trap> I did, but I'm sure anyone that looked at the game would know that it was. The king and pawn endgame wins for black because white's king position is precarious.
   Feb-13-07 Shirov vs S Chanda, 2006 (replies)
morphyvsfischer: <kellmano> I don't see how giving up a queen for three pieces is special, but Rxe6! is pretty wild, I must agree.
   Feb-04-07 Ribli vs Y Gruenfeld, 1979
morphyvsfischer: Opposite colored bishop endings are not always drawn! 15...Bg4 is better. 21...Be5? gives a pawn for nothing. 38...a5 is correct, and reduces White's options a lot. In the game, 41...a3 42 Ke3 Bb5 43 Rc1 stops the bishop from going to c4, but if Black dispensed with ...Rd8, ...
   Feb-04-07 K Plater vs Botvinnik, 1947 (replies)
morphyvsfischer: 6 d4 gives Black a lot of problems. The move chosen gives an easy game. 10 Bf4 equalizes. 11 a3 is necessary. 36...Rxe3 37 Kxe3 Bxg2 38 Na4 Kd6 39 Nxb6 Kc5 wins faster.
   Feb-04-07 Yanofsky vs A Pinkus, 1942 (replies)
morphyvsfischer: Great bishop ending. Black needs to keep the knights on, thus 40...Ne6? deserves to be punished. 43...Bd7 44 g3 Be8 45 Bb5! Bf7 46 Ka5 Kc7 47 Ka6 Kb8 48 a5 g5 49 f4 h6 50 Ba4 Be6 51 Be8! will soon win the d5 pawn after Kb5-c5 and Ba4-b3. Absolute bucketload of zugzwangs in ...
   Feb-04-07 Timman vs H Ree, 1984 (replies)
morphyvsfischer: Neat knight ending. 15...Nd5 looks safer. 16...Bb5 seems necessary, stopping the rook going to d3. 21...Rc8 22 Rxc8+ Nxc8 23 Ng5 is also bad for black. 25...h6 26 bxc5 hxg5 27 Ke2 wins. 28...a6 is necessary. 30 Nc8! Nb5 31 a4 Nc3+ 32 Kd3 Nxa4 33 Nxa7 Nb2+ 34 Kd4 wins faster.
   Feb-04-07 Schlechter vs Rubinstein, 1912 (replies)
morphyvsfischer: A rook ending with equal material, won! Oh wait, it's Rubinstein, nothing special for him. 9 Qe2 gives white small advantage. Basically, any attempt white tries to smash black on move 11 fails to ...Qd5. 16 0-0-0?! is bad because white is basically depriving himself of ...
   Feb-04-07 Uhlmann vs U Boensch, 1976 (replies)
morphyvsfischer: This game makes me want to play the Hedgehog over and over again. 21 Qd2 doesn't appear to be a very good move (it stops ...d5 temporarily) and 23 cxb5?! just invites Black to smash White.
   Feb-04-07 Levenfish vs Lisitsin, 1935
morphyvsfischer: This game is great at explaining the dangers of the Maroczy Bind. The queen's knight needs to be played to c6, and 10...Bd7 followed by ...Ne6 at least prepares ...a6 followed by ...b5 or ...f5. 16...Rfc8 is correct. 30...fxe4? 31 Qd7 wins a piece; 30...Qxe4 31 Qxe4 fxe4 32 ...
   Feb-04-07 Epishin vs Polugaevsky, 1993 (replies)
morphyvsfischer: That passed pawn sure did hurt black. 14...Rac8 is necessary. 16...exd5 17 Nxf6+ Bxf6 18 Bxf6 gxf5 19 cxd5 Bxd5? Bxd5 Qxd5 21 Re8+! Kg7 22 Qxd5 Rxd5 23 Rxa8 wins. 19...g6 is correct. (19...h6? 20 Be5!! traps the queen!) 30...h5 31 Qe7 followed by g4 and h5 wins.
