   Feb-21-22 Portisch vs Petrosian, 1974 (replies)
paul1959: <Ulhumbrus> You are half-right: Computer analysis shows that the Black King escapes after 17... Nxe5 and 18 ...f6. However, Black is always one move from disaster in this variation. Byrne could move his pieces in his analysis , not Petrosian, so no wonder he rejected 14... ...
   Oct-31-21 Chigorin vs Tarrasch, 1893 (replies)
paul1959: 48 Qh3 doesn’t look much until you see Qh8 followed by Nh6. Black is indeed in danger. 48 ... Qc7 looks like the best since White has to find Ra1. <offramp> suggested 48...fxg5 49 Nfxe5 Bc7 is interesting but apparently fails to 50 Rc1. Black has to part with the rook pair ...
   Oct-30-21 Z Vranesic vs Foguelman, 1964
paul1959: Bent Larsen mentioned this variation in How to open a chess game. It was used by GMs who wanted to circumvent tournament rules forbidding short draws. Black could force a repetition after 13 ...Qc2+ 14 Kf3 Qf5+ . The game was still equal until the blunder 20 Qxa7 .
   Jan-10-21 Tarrasch vs Capablanca, 1914
paul1959: 17 Qe1 Rb6 18 Bd3 Bxf3 19 a5 Rb8 20 Bxe4 Bxe4 21 Qxe4 is an almost forced sequence that would have kept the initiative.
   Jul-06-20 Pachman vs G Ilivitsky, 1956 (replies)
paul1959: <Retireborn> You are right about 33 c4? because of 33 ...e4 34 Rxg3 Kxg3 and white is in trouble. On other rook moves f5 is strong
   Jul-29-19 D Bergin vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1966 (replies)
paul1959: 6 Qf3 looks like a typo since Black could have taken the d4 pawn without much risk. Qd3 seems more plausible.
   Jul-28-19 Smyslov vs Lilienthal, 1941
paul1959: Instead of 30...cxb3 , Qa3 was strong. If 31 bxc4 Qxc3 32 cxb5 Nd4 wins the Queen White has to go for 31 Qxe5 cxb3 with a dangerous passed pawn for Black
   Nov-18-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
paul1959: White has to rush his King to d4 and sac the g2 pawn
   Jun-24-18 Steinitz vs Blackburne, 1869 (replies)
paul1959: A crude game unworthy of those two greats. Steinitz got the right idea with the h pawn push but 13 Bxd4 ( Bg5 was better) was hasty since 14 Qh6 did not work. Blackburne could have equalized by exchanging queens but his 14... Nb4 simply allowed his opponent to resume his plan.
   Jun-23-18 Tartakower vs G A Thomas, 1936
paul1959: There is a picture from that game in the current article on Reshevsky on the Europe-Echecs site. Sir George had the better game until he blundered with 36... Nf5?? (Qc7 was correct). 18... Nb4 19 d4 Nd5 would also have been very good for Black.
