   Feb-25-13 Larsen vs D Marmet, 1988
pescau: The first one was one of the worst messages ever. I meant, of course 9. ♘e5 ♘xe5. But 29. ... ♗c4 I wrote correctly. The bishop hangs in the air "in almost exactly the way a brick doesn't" to paraphrase Douglas Adams. Cheers. P.
   Feb-22-13 R Nezhmetdinov vs Damjanovic, 1964
pescau: Following 28. ♖e1 then 28. ... ♕f2 doesn't work. But 28. ... ♕e3+ 29. ♔b1 ♕d2 seems strong. Would this be the reason for the resignation? Can't see anything else. Cheers. P.
   Feb-16-13 Korchnoi vs Kasparov, 1982 (replies)
pescau: In the picture mentioned by <GrahamClayton> it can be seen the next board, with a finished game where Tal had black. The black king in the middle of the board indicates that Black won, doesn't it? I think the game is this one: H Wirthensohn vs Tal, 1982 Cheers. P.
   Feb-13-13 A Sorin vs Taimanov, 1992
pescau: <john2629: 38.Nb5 Rd1#> Yes, of course, what was I thinking? Thanks. Cheers. P.
   Feb-13-13 A Sorin vs Larsen, 1995
pescau: Hi there From the final position, the threat is ♖e3#. The only move that avoids this is 64. ♖e2, but then 64. ... ♕d1+ and the White rook is lost, and surely mate follows anyway shortly afterwards. I think that resigning at precisely this point (not before, not ...
   Feb-10-13 R Nezhmetdinov vs Tal, 1957 (replies)
pescau: <Hesam7>: thanks a lot for these set of comments; they are highly instructive. Cheers. P.
   Feb-09-13 I Bilek vs Tal, 1967 (replies)
pescau: Most of the time with Tal brilliancies, I'm like "I'd never thought of that". But sometimes I don't understand what's going on even when I see the move. For example 15. ... d4. What's up? If black was planning to take the dark squared black bishop, why not to do it right now? ...
   Feb-03-13 Fischer vs Spassky, 1992 (replies)
pescau: And now that I'm at it, I could not find comments praising white's 42nd move (keep in mind that 42 is the answer to everything, among other things). When the king, after the queen's check, discovers an attack on the poor knight: <41. ♕d4+ ♔e6> the knight on h4 has ...
   Feb-03-13 Roesch vs W Schlage, 1910 (replies)
pescau: <takchess: Was there a game in the original Arthur C Clarke's book?> I read the book many years ago, and I don't remember whether there was a chess game in it. But I think that this novel (2001: A Space Odyssey) is one of the very few cases (I'm not aware of any other) where ...
   Feb-01-13 Carlsen vs Harikrishna, 2013 (replies)
pescau: After 50. ♘xf6, even though all three white pieces are attacked, two of them undefended, they are immune. I suppose the best move available to Black here is 50. ... ♕e7 and I couldn't find anything better for White than 51. ♖xf8 ♕xf8 52. ♘xh5, keeping ...
