   Jan-21-19 Ljubojevic vs Karpov, 1975
nezhmet: 18. b4! trying to make use of the deformed queenside pawns. Don't rush to trade rooks.
   Oct-24-16 Tal vs Larsen, 1965 (replies)
nezhmet: Looking at it in 2016 with Stockfish I think black is just totally busted in the main sac line with ...Ne5 Bf4 c5 Nc3 a6 b4 b6.
   Jul-21-15 M Kobalia vs Lu Shanglei, 2015
nezhmet: Bizarre play by Kobalia bypassing the normal 5. Bxd7+ with a safe, small edge.
   Nov-23-13 Holdzhayev vs Nezhmetdinov, 1955 (replies)
nezhmet: 8. Qf3? Rb8! is strong.
   Sep-22-12 Marshall vs Lasker, 1907 (replies)
nezhmet: Did nobody notice that Lasker's 37...Be2?? was a dreadful blunder? Instead the obvious 37... Ke3! 38. Nd2 Be2! forces immediate resignation by zugzwang. After the game move, Marshall replies with a horrible blunder 38. Nd2+?? missing the obvious 38. Kd2! Kf3 39. Nc3 Kxg3 40. Ne4+ ...
   Feb-26-12 Reti vs Tartakower, 1910 (replies)
nezhmet: Koltanowski vs A Dunkelblum, 1923 There, Koltanowski beats a hack with this queen sac motif. But in the Reti-Tartarkower game, this was an incredible loss for a top ten player, even if it was an offhand game.
   Sep-02-11 Bacrot vs Robson, 2011 (replies)
nezhmet: I wrote an instructional learning platform for the iPhone called Chess U. One of the courses we have there is Rook 101. As you might guess, this fundamental position is covered (I got it from Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual). If Robson had played the quiz on the phone on the way over to ...
   Jul-05-11 A Giri vs R Swinkels, 2011 (replies)
nezhmet: 21... f5? 22. d6! splat, 1-0. Earlier, Swinkely Winkely missed the chance for a golden confusion TN: 10...c5! TN 11. Qxc5 Rc8 with the intention of taking on c3 with the rook on any queen move.
   Jul-05-11 J Smeets vs A Giri, 2011 (replies)
nezhmet: Smeets's lemon, 17. Bd3? had already been played in Lutz-J. Polgar (drawn), Budapest 2003. 17. Bxe5! would have been a strong TN but he missed it.
   Jul-05-11 A Giri vs W Spoelman, 2011 (replies)
nezhmet: What a collapse from young Wouter. Proceeding from equality (28... Nf6) to a loss (28... e5??) in one move. Black should not open the game when the opponent has the latent power of the two bishops.
