   May-28-20 J A Grefe vs Korchnoi, 1979 (replies)
 
patzerboy: I am amazed there is no commentary on this game until now. For all I know, the moves right through Korchnoi giving up his Queen might be established theory, but the way in which Korchnoi proceeds to guard everything while inexorably expanding and pushing his pawns step by step, ...
 
   Sep-23-19 M Narciso Dublan vs Morozevich, 2015 (replies)
 
patzerboy: Lovely, watching Black incroach step by step on White's Queenside and just smother him there. Very enjoyable.
 
   Dec-16-10 Carlsen vs Short, 2010 (replies)
 
patzerboy: Quite a comeback in this tournament from an almost disastrous start to win it. Bravo!
 
   Dec-06-10 Kasparov vs Oxford United, 1993 (replies)
 
patzerboy: Subtitled "When footballers play chess."
 
   Dec-01-10 Z Ivanovic vs S E Meyer, 2000 (replies)
 
patzerboy: At last! A game I actually could relate to...as Black.
 
   Sep-11-10 Kotronias vs Grigoriants, 2009 (replies)
 
patzerboy: My grasshopper brain was clueless from two moves BEFORE the puzzle position.
 
   Jul-11-10 Spassky vs Portisch, 1977 (replies)
 
patzerboy: I love the recurring theme of kicking the hapless knight all over the queenside starting at move 26. Four times the knight comes under attack, eventually being driven to the edge of the board at move 31, as Spassky consolidates his grip on the center.
 
   Jan-25-09 A Ostapenko vs Yartsev, 1969 (replies)
 
patzerboy: What else does Ostapenko do for fun? Hunt bears with only a knife? Talk about living on the edge!
 
   Jan-18-09 Anand vs Macieja, 2000 (replies)
 
patzerboy: I don't see this as an "insane" difficulty puzzle. The decision to sacrifice the bishop for all of Black's Kingside pawns I see as a strategic and not a tactical decision (even if achieved by tactics). Seeing a clear winning line through to the end is not a requirement of this ...
 
   Dec-19-08 E Zemgalis vs W Kuppe, 1949 (replies)
 
patzerboy: It seems that Black's whole Queenside plan from 12...b4 to 18...dxc5 was ill-conceived. What has he accomplished? White has the open b-file, Black's Queenside pawns are all weak, and Black has fatally weak light squares on the Queenside. Once White starts hitting the weak pawns, ...
