   Apr-17-21 Miles vs Larsen, 1978
tessathedog: Beautiful ending! Miles was such a good endgame player. What I especially like about this demonstration of using the "principle of two weaknesses" is how Miles firstly initiates kingside play to develop a second weakness (22 g4!) and then, once Black's knight and king are ...
   Apr-12-21 Polugaevsky vs V Osnos, 1969
tessathedog: <Zydeco>, after 21 g3 Black can defend with a lovely "off-ramp" move. Can you see it? Polu must have spotted it and plays the stronger 21 e5!
   Mar-14-21 Botvinnik vs Tal, 1960
tessathedog: Perhaps the best sealed move in the history of world championship chess matches. Jusupov highlights this as an example of "the comparison method".
   Mar-13-21 A Martin Gonzalez vs Adorjan, 1977
tessathedog: Vintage Adorjan! Such a keen tactical eye. Jusupov highlights 16...fxe6! accepting doubled pawns to control the key d5 square, keeping out white's knight. But the play after that is dazzling (22...Bh6! and 23...Rf3!). More subtle is how on the very next move the king is forced ...
   Feb-24-21 V Artemiev vs M Petrosyan, 2017 (replies)
tessathedog: That was just ruthless! To just allow ...Nxd5 like that, and say "go ahead, make my day". I guess he knew of the idea in advance of the game?
   Feb-21-21 F Vallejo Pons vs M Tissir, 2017
tessathedog: 18 a3!! is a lovely trap. If the queen retreats, White's majority gets rolling. Black thinks he can grab the "b" pawn, but 19 Qe3! and the cage is slammed shut. Very nice.
   Feb-21-21 P S Spiller vs M Steadman, 2017
tessathedog: Scintillating attacking play by the Kiwi Tal, who insists on opening lines regardless of the cost in material. The classical 14 Nd5! piece sacrifice is followed up by the elegant 17 e5! and black is on his knees, but defends well and manages to save an excellently played game by
   Jan-15-21 Leonid Yurtaev
tessathedog: Thanks Ionchaney. I've found another one (this guy could really play). His game with Sveshnikov in 1990, ending in a draw (Informant 50 #370). On several occasions in the one game, really profound tactical ideas (one really needs Sveshnikov's notes handy to appreciate the play ...
   Jan-13-21 Unzicker vs Taimanov, 1952
tessathedog: Kencha, yes, there is, in Jusupov’s training series. Volume 7, the first of the green ‘mastery’ volumes. It’s an illustrative game in the chapter on backward pawns.

tessathedog: That story of Ray’s about the Donner/Penrose “fire on board” game had me laughing out loud!! The Tal story in the same column is a great read too.
