   Jul-16-12 J Garcia Padron vs J M Bellon Lopez, 1990 (replies)
 
romni: Thanks for that Phony Benoni!
 
   Jul-15-12 Nunn vs Csom, 1977 (replies)
 
romni: It would be interesting to know how much of this the players actually seen. Can't help thinking that intuition play a part in Csom's defence...from the diagram black looks very cramped and it's easy to think 'white must have something'.Csom played some great chess in the 1970's! (He ...
 
   Jul-10-12 V Hamitevici vs S R Burns-Mannion, 2010 (replies)
 
romni: I thought it was 24.Nxe6, which I think also wins, but 24.Qxg7+ wins a rook! (and not just a piece!) The old adage is true "once you have found a good move...look for a better one!" (something I have a tendency to forget...too many blitz games I guess!)
 
   Jun-27-12 Morozevich vs Bologan, 2004 (replies)
 
romni: Must admit I missed it..Took a quick look and thought '28.Rxf8+,Kxf8 29.Qf6+ Ke8 30.Bd6'..This wins also, but 28.Qh8+ is much more aesthetic!
 
   Jun-26-12 Srinivas vs V Ravikumar, 1984 (replies)
 
romni: Ravikumar! Wow...thats a blast from the past!...I remember playing some 5 minute games with him, way back in the day...needless to say I didn't get much of a 'look-in'.
 
   Jun-24-12 Fischer vs J Sherwin, 1957 (replies)
 
romni: One of the most famous positions in chess history! Demonstrates Fischers' chess genius perfectly. Sadly he was as mad as a bag of frogs away from the board!
 
   Jun-18-12 Ulf Andersson vs Hartston, 1973 (replies)
 
romni: I've seen this position many times before, but it's still very neat!...Reminds me in a way of 'the dance of the elephant'..a puzzle in 'search for the mona lisa by Eduard Gufeld, mate by a single bishop. Bill Hartston should've become one of Britains first GMs' in the 1970s..pity it ...
 
   Jun-03-12 Seidman vs Santasiere, 1939 (replies)
 
romni: I considered 15.Nxf7....but after a few seconds thought 15.Qh5, hxg;16.Bd3,g6;17.Bxg6...Doesn't this win also?
 
   Jun-02-12 Alekhine vs P de Unamuno, 1944 (replies)
 
romni: Alekhine had never won a game against Capablanca before the World Championship match....in fact tha same situation as later in Fischer V Spassky.....Spassky, like Capablanca was a 'natural' chess talent , but didnt work hard at the game. many of the comments people have made here are ...
 
   May-29-12 Anand vs Gelfand, 2012 (replies)
 
romni: My own reckoning about the title of World Champion is that he/she is 'first amongst equals'. We all know of players from the past who would have been worthy 'Champs' but who, for one reason or another never held the title. Nowadays, with the intensity of playing schedule we should not
