   Jan-07-21 M Leconte vs A Skripchenko, 2001 (replies)
syracrophy: What a picture from the final position! Even though White's a piece up there's no way for giving the ♕, for the least, to continue: even after the desperate 28.♕xd6 ♕xd6 29.♖xc2 (29.♖xf3 ♖xb2) ♖xf1+ 30.♔xf1 ♕d1+ loses all; but
   Dec-31-20 Pachman vs M Ujtelky, 1959
syracrophy: Also, White's optimism after 32.♔h1?? (instead of accepting a draw with 32.♔xg2 ♕xe4+ due to perpetual) proved to be his downfall. It's a nice position of ♕♖♖ with both ♔'s at stake
   Dec-31-20 Andersson vs Stein, 1972
syracrophy: Andersson's 30.♖f2! was loyal to his defensiveness until the end: after 30...♕e7 31.♗g5 and there's no check when taking the <♖c5>
   Dec-03-20 Topalov vs Kramnik, 1997
syracrophy: A great finishing jolt! The theme is simple but so so neat.
   Nov-26-20 V Green vs Steinitz, 1864
syracrophy: The miniature of the zwischenzugs.
   Nov-26-20 Spassky vs Alvin Smart, 1980
syracrophy: 27...♗d4+! -- Nice counter.
   Nov-26-20 Radjabov vs D Anton Guijarro, 2020 (replies)
syracrophy: It's always a pleasure watching Anton Guijarro having great clashes against the 2700's club.
   Oct-16-20 Soltis vs Browne, 1965 (replies)
syracrophy: A spectacular move, <jerseybob>. When playing White through the full sequence (which is apalling) one may forget that he was not playing a combination out of his own but refuting Black's sac 26...♘c2?!, so it's not surprising that after 28...♔c8 29.♕g4+!! ...
   Jul-27-20 Taylor vs Hebden, 2004
syracrophy: After 24. Kxe2 Re8+ first, so then 25...c4 wins material. The direct 24...c4 25. Re3 Bxe3+ only recovers the exchange.
   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!>
