   Apr-05-21 S Vaibhav vs Carlsen, 2018
 
saintdufus: <takchess: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyV... gm quickly goes overs some combinations where black clean house.> Agadmator is not a GM, he's actually an A-player.
 
   Feb-10-21 Stein vs Hort, 1967 (replies)
 
saintdufus: From the tournament book: "March 1: This must be the blackest day of Stein's chess career. Stein lost in 40 moves after turning down Hort's offer of a draw on move 11! Hort was depressed at the way his luck had run and only wanted to be away from the torture. His chances of ...
 
   Dec-11-20 NN vs G H Derrickson, 1860
 
saintdufus: Playing through these Derrickson games, I get the impression he was a player who hung lots of pieces, used the "fishing pole" tactic in every game, and managed to win from lost positions because his opponents didn't defend properly. But it was a different game back then. ...
 
   Oct-21-20 Schlechter vs Lasker, 1910 (replies)
 
saintdufus: <PizzatheHut: Could someone help here? The note after move 49 reads "Drawish position".> I was about to say "there's no note after move 49," but then I read the comments and realized there must have been some weird bogus annotation thing going on, which Chessgames.com ...
 
   Sep-24-20 C Yip vs A Ivanov, 2014 (replies)
 
saintdufus: <How about a wee bit of credit for the lass.> Exactly! This was a great achievement for Carissa.
 
   Sep-19-20 A Vitolinsh vs Khalifman, 1984
 
saintdufus: <5. Bc4+ is a blunder that runs into 5...d5 6.ed Bd6 with almost no compensation for white.> You consider three pawns for a piece "almost no compensation"?
 
   Feb-24-20 Averkin vs Miles, 1976
 
saintdufus: After 47...Bd4 Black is threatening 48...Bc5#, so White is forced to sac the exchange.
 
   Sep-20-19 M Esserman vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
 
saintdufus: It wasn't White whose issue was confidence, but Black. Esserman is the world's #1 authority on this opening: he believes in it strongly, so he always plays it, no matter who his opponent is. I do wish Anand had accepted the gambit though. Maybe he feared a similar fate to what ...
 
   Apr-30-19 Charousek vs J Wollner, 1895
 
saintdufus: I love the beautiful tactical ideas of these "swashbuckling" geniuses of old.
 
   Apr-30-19 Spassky vs Karpov, 1982 (replies)
 
saintdufus: You hear stories about post-1972 Spassky "drawing his games quickly so he could go play tennis", but this game must have required immense energy to pull off.
