syracrophy: After the best 36.♖e1 ♖d1 liquidates the house, but the brilliant finish comes after 36.♕e1 ♖h3!! [DIAGRAM]
   Nov-04-19 Shirov vs J Westerberg, 2019 (replies)
syracrophy: Shirov's 14.g3!! reminds of an historic parallel: Bronstein vs Tal, 1968 [DIAGRAM] Mr. Bronstein here applied a recipe of his own and played 15.g3!. Keres commented: <"I asked Bronstein why he played 15. g3?! when 15.♖e1+ seemed to be fine enough. Bronstein stared at me ...

   Oct-27-19 Ragozin vs Keres, 1939
syracrophy: [DIAGRAM] White played the neat 36.♗d4! with a discovered attack over the ♖/ Δ 37.♗xf6#. Black reacted with 36...♖f8. Now White played the brilliant 37.♖b8!!: [DIAGRAM] This tactic resembles Tal's 34.♖a8!! in Tal vs B Brinck-Claussen, 1966

   Oct-07-19 Euwe vs A Speijer, 1924

   Oct-05-19 A Vitolinsh vs Tseshkovsky, 1981
syracrophy: Douglas Griffin pointed out he came across this game in an old edition of 'Shakhmaty': << [DIAGRAM] In the position, Vitolinsh indicated the clever try 66...a4!, with the point that on 67.Rd2 Black even wins, thanks to the remarkable 67...Qd1!! [DIAGRAM] >>
