   Jul-16-23 Ehlvest vs Ivanchuk, 1991
tessathedog: Well, this is quite astonishing. Firstly, the great Ivanchuk misses a simple win I think even I would spot on move 27 by swapping queens followed by Bh4. Then, just as I was admiring his skill in setting up a threat that cannot be defended with 32 Qd3! he reveals next move that ...
   Jun-07-23 G Michelakis vs Yusupov, 2003
tessathedog: Masterpiece.
   Jan-16-23 Giri vs D Gukesh, 2023 (replies)
tessathedog: A magnificent game!
   Jan-15-23 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2023 (replies)
tessathedog: A wonderful game which left me feeling uncomfortable after playing it over this morning. At first, I was thrilled by it. The defensive concepts of Aronian (particularly 18 Rh7!!) took my breath away. The determined and creative pushing by Magnus had been beautifully met by ...
   Jan-02-23 Giri vs Dubov, 2022 (replies)
tessathedog: Hats off everyone. A genius. I have been working my way through Dubov games in the rapid in Almaty. This was round 10. So far, no less than five games of the highest quality in rounds 3, 4, 6, 7 and then this absolute onslaught of murderous intent. Perhaps 8 Ne4 by black is a
   Dec-16-22 Dzindzichashvili vs Polugaevsky, 1989 (replies)
tessathedog: This is really curious! Dzin totally outplays Polu in the opening, and we arrive at White 15th move. Here there is a straightforward immediate win so long as you do not miss a mate in one in your calculations. The win is 15 Qf4+ Bf6 (forced, as the Qd8 is hanging) 16 Bd5+ and ...
   Oct-01-22 Yudasin vs Psakhis, 1981
tessathedog: What a cunning trap set by Psakhis with 29...c4! And then Yudasin falls for it hook, line and sinker, missing 31...Nf5! A good example of Szabo's remark "I became a much better player when I learnt to look one ply further".
   Sep-24-22 75th Russian Championship (2022) (replies)
tessathedog: A fast play off is a silly idea to decide any serious classical tournament, and Armageddons are just ridiculous. As far as I’m concerned, they both tied for first, and share the title, like in the good old (sensible) days. Congratulations Danny and Sanan! Mind you, I thought ...
   Sep-20-22 V Artemiev vs Dubov, 2022
tessathedog: I liked this quiet game. Perhaps because it was relatively easy to follow! Artemiev always looks to have a touch of class about him. Here 19 Bc4 by black is well spotted, using clever tactics to keep the balance. But the move I really liked is exactly the same move Bc4! on move ...
   Sep-20-22 I Iljiushenok vs A Nesterov, 2022
tessathedog: If it was move 40 you could understand it. But he surely had plenty of time, and it seems so straightforward. I presume he missed something in the line he did play, thinking it was completely winning when it was not. Hope the wall in his room isn�t too damaged.
