   Jul-07-04 Gufeld vs Tal, 1959 (replies)
 
raylopez99: Nice game where Gufeld beats Tal to the punch. I thought for sure Tal had a mating net going, but just in time Gufeld comes to the rescue with his own K-side net. 37. f4+ also mates in two says Fritz.
 
   Jul-07-04 Gufeld vs Tal, 1956
 
raylopez99: Nice game played to a draw, with the usual grandmaster traps for the unwary. Run this through a commercial program like Fritz and you'll see very few mistakes made. These GMs are like meat computers!
 
   Dec-05-03 Larsen vs J Penrose, 1953 (replies)
 
raylopez99: A blunder in a losing position. Funny how a stronger player (Larsen probably was stronger at this age, though it's hard to tell) can make you do that.
 
   Dec-05-03 Jonathan Penrose (replies)
 
raylopez99: J. Penrose was also one of the discoverors of the genetic disease PKU. http://www.genetics.org/cgi/content... Oliver, a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS), is a professor of mathematics and physics; Roger, also a third-generation FRS (after his father and maternal grandfather), ...
 
   Dec-04-03 Fischer vs Spassky, 1992 (replies)
 
raylopez99: Nigel Short annotated this game at the Arts|Chess column found at http://www.telegraph.co.uk I think 15. Nxd6+ Qxd6 16. Nf5! is an improvement. Short gives the 7. b4!?, which shows how strange Fischer's sacrifice for initiative is, even to a leading player! Awesome game. Almost ...
 
   Dec-04-03 Spielmann vs B Hoenlinger, 1929 (replies)
 
raylopez99: This problem was hard because there are so many winning possibilities. I guessed wrong with 25. Nd6, which only wins the exchange (if the QxN, then mate after Rh5, or Qxh7).
 
   Dec-02-03 Koltanowski vs Day, 1960 (replies)
 
raylopez99: Nice Kolty minature. I would have just taken the queen, but Kolty goes for mate, blindfold!
 
   Dec-02-03 Blackburne vs Day, 1876 (replies)
 
raylopez99: Dang, Day played until the bitter end! LOL, maybe he thought he could win on time.
 
   Dec-01-03 George Steven Botterill (replies)
 
raylopez99: Botterill wrote a series of books that I enjoyed on chess, and is well known in UK chess circles--RL "One of the things that appeals to me about competitive chess (I mean over-the-board chess, though presumably the same goes for correspondence chess if there is not too much ...
 
   Dec-01-03 Kibitzer's Café (replies)
 
raylopez99: Are there Kibitz pages for specific openings? I'd like to Kibit on the French Defense, Advance variation. It is wicked! Try playing and defending as Black--you hardly ever get the chance to castle! An opening a Steinitz would love.
