   Jun-05-23 N Kagan vs Kasparov, 1978
rwbean: White must have had some pretty straightforward draws on moves 37, 38 and 39. Time trouble?
   Jun-03-23 E Torre vs Fischer, 1992
rwbean: 20. h4 or 28.b4 should be strong (both about +1.5 with SF). 49. ♘xe6 is a seemingly obvious winning tactic (+3.5) or 52. ♔e4 (+4.6) or 69. ♖h8 ♖b7 70. ♖f8+ mating soon maybe friends aren't the best sparring partners
   Jun-03-23 J F O'Donovan vs H Cordova, 1939
rwbean: Black is hopelessly lost by move 12, almost anything would work for White. 5.... ♘d5! already leaves Black better. Why not attack White's f4 ♙? 7... dxe5 equalises or 8... ♗xf3 avoids the terrible position Black gets into. 20. ♗xg6! hxg6 21. ♘f3 is a ...
   Jun-01-23 Firouzja vs Mamedyarov, 2023
rwbean: One of those games where the quality of play after move 25 probably drops off steeply... 26. ♗xd3 is even - but in the game, the black ♘ and ♗ start to line up on g2 which is bad for white 27... ♕d8 starts to reroute the ♕ back to a better square, ...
   May-27-23 I Rice vs W Donisthorpe, 1892
rwbean: Computer notes here aren't good ... 10... ♗g3! is best, greed is good, and 13... f5? just loses, opens up the king, what was he thinking ... 13... ♘d7!
   May-27-23 Lasker / Rice vs Hoffer / Maroczy, 1900
rwbean: 12... ♘e3 or 14... ♘d7 or 25... ♖d5 win easily The universal remedy against the Rice Gambit is 8... ♘bd7!! and even after 8... ♗xe5 etc, 10... ♘bd7 or ♘h5 is winning.
   May-26-23 Spielmann vs F Duz-Khotimirsky, 1911
rwbean: After 21... ♘f6? (... g6 or ... bxc3 are about equal) and 22... exd4?? Black gets smooshed. 25. ♗f5 would have been more aesthetic!
   May-24-23 Denn vs P Pervago, 1904
rwbean: 156. At the Last Bivouac, 1904. This game was contested by two Russian officers in Manchuria on the eve of an assault in which the Captain was killed. Lieutenant Denn was severely wounded in the same engagement and sent the score of the game to M. Alapin, adding that "the furious ...
   May-16-23 D Gukesh vs M Rafiee, 2019
rwbean: The correct move 23 must be either of (no practical difference) 23. ♘gf6+ gxf6 24. ♘xf6+ or 23. ♘ef6+ gxf6 24. ♘xf6+ not 23. ♘xh6+?? ♘xh6! (or ♔h8 or ♔h7) winning perhaps it's ♘gf6+ since the score here has the g4 ♘ ...
   May-09-23 Kasparov vs Lautier, 1995
rwbean: Tim Krabbe linked above: "If that is true, this is also the second time in three days he forgets his analysis - against Lautier with the inexplicable 16.♘d6+?? where he knew his computer says 16.e5 is practically winning." at 45 ply in Stockfish, the eval is the same, so the ...
