   Aug-16-10 Tal vs Karpov, 1979 (replies)
rigel1503: Contrived insipid result typical of the Soviet era. This game was drawn even before the first move was played. In multinational tournaments the Soviet players would agree to easssy draws so they would be mentally fresh when playing non Soviet players. Tal and Karpov played each ...
   Aug-10-10 Kasparov vs B Ivanovic, 1983 (replies)
rigel1503: Keypusher: yes the troof! Not the truth. Conspiracy theories the great assembly line of Internet excrement.
   Aug-06-10 Kramnik vs Anand, 2008 (replies)
rigel1503: Amazing. I was transfixed with Rh1+ like nearly everyone else and the simple Q sac with Qf3 wins as Bxf3 will lead to Black capturing with the "mighty" pawn via gxf3 denying the White king any flight squares. And yes, if it was a Monday or Tuesday puzzle I may have seen it ...
   May-29-10 P Nikolic vs Yusupov, 1989
rigel1503: I need to elaborate on variation b), namely 15. ... Rd2+ 16. Kf3 Qc6+ 17. Kg3 Qxh1 White is an exchange up, however 18. Qxa7 threatens Qa4+ winning the Bishop and Bxd2 winning the exchange back with interest and Qa8+ winning black's Kings Rook. However, Black has the move 18. ... ...
   May-23-10 Pirc vs Gligoric, 1953 (replies)
rigel1503: Very gutsy move!! I thought maybe the breakthrough with f5, but no way could I see it all the way through, and over the board I would not have had the guts to play it.
   May-21-10 J Mieses vs Tarrasch, 1916 (replies)
rigel1503: Yes, a strange and fascinating game
   May-16-10 M Sorokin vs Ulibin, 1986 (replies)
rigel1503: Nailed it. I saw Nce5, but it took me longer to find the two other key moves of Nxf2 and d4. Very nice and deep combo.
   Feb-21-10 Svidler vs C Holst, 1991 (replies)
rigel1503: 18. Bxe7 Qxe7 19. Ng5+ Kg8 20.Rxf8+ Qxf8 21. Qh4 Qf5 and white has nothing AND 18. Bxe7 Qxe7 19. Ng5+ Kg8 20.Qh4 Rxf1+ 21. Rxf1 g6 22. Rf7 (What else???) Qxf7 23. Nxf7 Kxf7 24. Qh7+ Kf6 25. Qc7 Bd7 26. Ne4+? Nxe4 27. Qxd7?? Rd8 28. Qxc6 Rd1# OR 26. b4 Rc8 and the Rook and two ...
   Nov-27-09 Timman vs Geller, 1973 (replies)
rigel1503: To me, Timman's problems stem from the pawn grab on c5 before he ensures the safety of his king. Instead of 15. dxc5, why not 15. O-O. I don't see the need for rushing dxc5. Eg: 15. O-O c4 16. Qd6 Nc6 17. Ne5 Nxe5 18. Qxe5 Qc7 19. f4 Qxe5 20. fxe5 leaves White dominant due to ...
   Nov-09-09 Macieja vs Ponomariov, 1997 (replies)
rigel1503: Just for good measure, a fifth variation where Black tries to assert control in the centre with e5: (5) 12. O-O-O Bxe6 13. Rhe1 Bf7 14.Ne4 e5 15. Nd6+ Ke7 16. Bxe5 (Not only the sacrifice on d5 is possible) fxe5 17. Qxf7+ (Thanks to the e5 sac, the Queen charges up the 'f' file ...
