   Jul-31-23 Boleslavsky vs Szabo, 1953
tbontb: Black Szabo wins the R ending due to his active K.
   Jul-24-23 Janowski vs Lasker, 1910
tbontb: It seems 26.Rh3 was the losing error (better Qxf5 but White still has an unenviable position). Although 8.a4 looks weakening, this type of pawn structure was later tested successfully at the highest level (Botvinnik-Petrosian World Championship 1963).
   Jul-23-23 Rubinstein vs Lasker, 1925
tbontb: As Rubinstein says, having exchanged off Rs White is condemned to a laborious defence with no attacking chances. After the final error 31.Qc3 there is no way back, whereas 31.Bxd5 Nxd5 32.Kg1 a4 may yet hold on.
   Jul-18-23 I Kan vs Lasker, 1935
tbontb: Kan plays aggressively against the wily veteran Lasker but misses the win with 33.exd5 (...Qf6 34.dxc6 dxc3 35.Rxd7 Qxc6 36.Ree7) then blunders with 44.Qd6 (better 44.Qe7+ Ka6 45.Qc5 accepting the draw) and has to resign.
   Jul-01-23 Lasker vs Pillsbury, 1895 (replies)
tbontb: To summarise, Pillsbury Black plays bravely but inaccurately when slightly better, only to see the position turn around completely. It seems the last chance is 32...Rb8. In the game the monster White a pawn quickly decides matters.
   Mar-05-23 Pillsbury vs Tinsley, 1895
tbontb: An important game for the winner. Tinsley missed the best defence (35....Qc6) after which Pillsbury easily broke through
   Jan-25-23 Tarrasch vs Bird, 1895
tbontb: Tarrasch methodically develops his pieces to attack the misplaced Black K. After 14....dxe5 (better ....Ne4) there seems to be no way back.
   Jan-18-23 Steinitz vs Tinsley, 1895
tbontb: A very early Modern Benoni. White Steinitz grabs the material and weathers the storm by resourceful defence. For Black Tinsley, 25....Nf4 (better Nd4 with approximate equality) seems to be the main error, handing White a winning advantage.
   Jan-14-23 Lasker vs Gunsberg, 1895
tbontb: Lasker's direct if suspect attack (better 10....d4) is met by imperfect defence and he wins rapidly.
   Jan-14-23 Chigorin vs Tinsley, 1895
tbontb: An unusual game where analysis suggests White is much better from 28.Rxf6 onward, despite the boxed-in Qa8.
