   Jun-25-20 Charousek vs Maroczy, 1895
syracrophy: The last two moves were dramatic: a mutual blindness! 40.f6?? <♕d8+ still wins> ♖a1+?? <♖g3+! draws!>
   Jun-25-20 Ribli vs Marjanovic, 1979
syracrophy: A rich position where the ♘f6 remained en prise for 7 moves (from moves 12-19) (!). If it would've been taken right away reaches a ♗vs♖ middlegame with good chances for either side: 13. exf6 gxf6 14. ♗h6 dxc3 15. ♗xf8 cxb2 16. ♕xd8 ♗xd8 ...
   Jun-25-20 Marjanovic vs A Zapata, 1987
syracrophy: <Straclonoor: 27.Qc5+? nonfatal mistake. 27.Qe4+! wins immediately> This is the kind of "slips" that gives more heat to the battle -- though at the cost of the player's nerves. What continued was an entertaining battle where Black was utterly helpless even being up a ...
   Jun-25-20 Estrin vs K Van Leens Dijkstra, 1977
syracrophy: <rwbean 25. b5 is pretty crushing (+3.56 at 51 ply, Stockfish)> The turnaround of balance seemed most dramatic after 25.♘xe7?! ♖c2 -- White relinquised his golden knight of c6 (for just nothing) and Black immediately ceased the 7th rank control. Bad day at the ...
   Jun-24-20 Wang Hao vs Wei Yi, 2019
syracrophy: Throughout the years, Wei Yi has kept his aggressive approach with creative touches in the opening. This one is remarkable - a Petrov with a flavor of an open-Sicilian or a sharp King's Gambit. I hope he can tame this flame to return to the top 20 soon.
   Jun-23-20 Caruana vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2020
syracrophy: [DIAGRAM] A remarkable point of this game is the sequence of exchange blows after White won a piece with 36.♖xc8. Now, an exciting round comes looking to hold the master ♘: 36...g5 37.♕d2! <gains a tempo hitting on the unprotected ♖> 37...♖a6! ...
   Jun-22-20 E Pettersson vs Stahlberg, 1935 (replies)
syracrophy: There was something strange on Black's play and on White's reply on moves 21-23. First, 21...d3! is clearly decisive; Black opted for breaking his powerful pawn mass with 21...dxc3? 22.bxc3 ♘e7? dropping the e5-pawn but White ignored the gift with 23.♘d2?
   Jun-19-20 D Oistrakh vs A Selezniev, 1931
syracrophy: The two sneaky pins that finished it all. <♔> After 30.♕xf4? <30.♖f3 ⩲> ♗g5! [DIAGRAM] If 31.♕xg5 ♖hg8 and the ♕ is pinned to the mate on g2 <♔♔> And the second pin after 32...♗xf2+! ...
   Jun-19-20 A Samsonkin vs J A M Neto, 2019
syracrophy: <master8ch> You're right: the direct 18.♘h7 was preferrable (the computer approves it) winning the exchange without further ado. At first glance I considered stronger the played 18.♘e4 because it goes for the attack on the queenside castle. Also, I didn't like ...
   Jun-17-20 Fischer vs I Lentze, 1970
syracrophy: Is remarkable Fischer's resourcefulness after being on a critical position. After <19.♘c4?>(19.♘e4 +-) Fischer faced the heat with <19...♖d1> but <20.♖xa2! ♖hd8!> (20...♖xe1?? 21.♖xa7+ ♔f8 22.♖xe1 g5 ...
