   Sep-20-23 Einstein vs Sell, 1913
sudoplatov: After 18.Kh8, it seems as if Al has a relatively easy win.
   Sep-10-23 R Leitao vs Caruana, 2010 (replies)
sudoplatov: Checking with Stockfish, it seems that after 24.Qd2, Be6 followed by ...Nc4 keeps Black's advantage.
   Jul-28-23 Jobava vs R Svane, 2020 (replies)
sudoplatov: I'd guess 26...Qf1+ (to avoid mate), 26.Qf1 Rb1+, 27.Ke2 Nxd4+ (28.Ke3 Nf5+ and mate is covered) 28.Ke2 c2. 29. g4 Rd1+ 30.Ke3 c1=Q+ Or something like that. White must keep checking.
   Jul-24-23 Marshall vs Schlechter, 1902
sudoplatov: Marshall vs Schlechter +8 -5 =20. Schlecter ranked in the top 10 (EDO) from 1900-1912. Marshall ranked 32 to 5 for the same time period. Tarrasch vs Marshall +13 -7 =18 Tarrasch was in the top 10 (usually around 3-5) Interestingly sans match the score is 6 to 6. Marshall had 3 ...
   Jul-22-23 T Lichtenhein vs B Raphael, 1857
sudoplatov: A modern treatment against the Steinitz Defense before Steinitz was STEINITZ.
   Jul-21-23 Winawer vs M S From, 1867
sudoplatov: 30... Be1+ seems to throw away most of Black's advantage; 30...Qd4 is about -.90 (SF). 32....Qg1 falls into a Mate. Black can still draw 32... Bd2+.
   Jul-18-23 Euwe - Keres (1939/40) (replies)
sudoplatov: Keres commented that Euwe made a mistake in switching openings in the latter part of the match. ( I do not recall where I read this. ) Keres thought the Euwe should have stuck to King Pawn Openings as he was doing well and Keres didn't really have a good answer it seems. Keres ...
   Jul-18-23 Marshall vs Lasker, 1907 (replies)
sudoplatov: The games in this match (I think) show the difference in strength between Marshall and Lasker. Marshall was (IMHO) about World Number 4 for around 20 years with Capablanca, Lasker, Tarrasch, and Lasker ranked above him (in different orders.) The strength gap between highly-rated ...
   Jul-13-23 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
sudoplatov: Lots of players don't do well in unclear positions; Fischer isn't alone there. Spielman (in The Art of Sacrifice) points out that an unexpected sacrifice has a physical effect on the opponent. Lasker liked these types of positions as did Marshall.
   Jul-09-23 R G Wade vs Korchnoi, 1960
sudoplatov: The pattern at the end of the game is covered in Kmoch's "Pawn Power in Chess." Things like 3 Pawns on Rank 6 vs 3 on Rank 2 (for the other side) can force Queening. Kmoch called this the "Sneaker" method. His "Quartgrip" formation can also force a Passed Pawn.
