   Jan-26-23 V Ivic vs L P Supi, 2023
nummerzwei: After 10.a4, [DIAGRAM] Supi's <Brazilian> manoeuvre 10...Nf8 11.Be2 Ng6 immediately brought up this predecessor: Tseshkovsky vs Mecking, 1976 (after 11.Nd2) [DIAGRAM] 11...g5 12.Bg3 Nf8 13.Bc4 Be6 14.Bb3 Ng6 (0-1, 39)
   Dec-12-22 Ljubojevic vs Mecking, 1975
nummerzwei: [DIAGRAM] Here, Mecking played 22...Nxd7 giving up the f7 pawn with check. You'd think there'd be a very good reason not to defend it with 22...Qxd7. In fact, White then wins by force with 23.Na4! and the more direct 23.Bh5! bxc3 24.Qb6!! (rather than 24.Bxf7+? Kd8 25.Rd1? ...
   Dec-12-22 E Safarli vs Karjakin, 2016
nummerzwei: Actually, despite agreeing to a repetition on move 18, Karjakin had come a long way: 14...Bd3! 15.Re1 e5 gives Black more than enough for the exchange. Instead of 12.Bxd5?, Safarli should have played 12.Bxa5 Rxd1+ 13.Rxd1 Nxa5 [DIAGRAM] with a sharp and unclear endgame.
   Nov-28-22 P Cramling vs E Doluhanova, 2022
nummerzwei: In the game, the less elegant 67.h6!? was played. This second plan is also sufficient to win, as became apparent around move 75 when Black had to concede the seventh rank. This leads to a typical position where White wins. White could have decided the game then and there with ...
   Oct-30-22 Szabo vs Polugaevsky, 1967 (replies)
nummerzwei: 14.Bb2?! is commonly branded an inaccuracy since the attack on White's center with 14...Bf6! is awkward to meet. Szabo should have played 14.Be3 or else 7.Qc2. Still, 17.Qb3 (instead of 17.Ba6?) would have left White equal or only slightly worse.
   Oct-19-22 Firouzja vs Carlsen, 2020
nummerzwei: By the way, the position after 61...Kxh5 was also reached in the game Navara vs Thai Dai Van Nguyen, 2021 (after 56...Kxh5). I found both games searching for practical examples of two pawns versus one. There, a draw was agreed after another fifteen moves. Firouzja blundering is ...
   Oct-15-22 Konstantin Landa
nummerzwei: RIP 2007 was pretty much Konstantin Landa's best year. At the end of it, he participated in Reggio Emilia (2007/08), which had a stronger line-up than the other editions he played in (with good results), and achieved additional exposure due to the tournament book by Mihail Marin
   Oct-13-22 A Dronov vs J Buecker, 2007
nummerzwei: <Sally Simpson: Also my tiny brain is recalling a Fischer game with nearly the same set up. (think Fischer was Black.)> This is the position after 76...Bxd4 77.Kxd4: [DIAGRAM] I don't know about Fischer, but another giant, Kasparov, won the same endgame with Black in Short
   Oct-07-22 Tartakower vs O'Kelly, 1950
nummerzwei: Take a look at the position after 23.f5: [DIAGRAM] The middlegame bears a striking resemblance to the famous game Yanofsky vs Portisch, 1962 from the Stockholm Interzonal (position after 25...Nd4): [DIAGRAM] That game was a Paulsen Sicilian. In fact, 1.e4 gives Black several ...
   Sep-24-22 Kupreichik vs Huebner, 1970
nummerzwei: In his book <Twenty-five Annotated Games> (1996), Huebner tried to prove an opening advantage for White with 13.a3 Bxc3+ 14.Nxc3, after which 14...h5 is the only move considered. The more logical 14...0-0 had already been played in Keitlinghaus vs E Heyken, 1995 : [DIAGRAM]
