   Nov-24-18 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1978 (replies)
thejack: I´m actually a bit confused as to why everyone seems to give those Schiller books such a bad rap. Sure, they seem to be somewhat poorly put together from an editing point of view, but for the chess content, I find them more appealing than those awful "move by move" books by ...
   Nov-20-18 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1971 (replies)
thejack: Doesn´t 26. Nf5 look ok for White? He threates Ne7+, and after 26.-ef5: 27.Rd5: he seems to be doing fine.
   May-26-18 Znosko-Borovsky vs A J Mackenzie, 1924 (replies)
thejack: Didn´t 27.Ng5 win instantly?
   Apr-12-18 K Galia vs C Kottnauer, 1947 (replies)
thejack: It is, but strangely enough he gave 24.-e4 an exclam! Doesn't 24.- Rd3: win on the spot?!
   Apr-11-18 Robatsch vs Fischer, 1965 (replies)
thejack: 30.-Qg5 looked prettty strong, too.
   Dec-13-16 Gligoric vs Petrosian, 1959 (replies)
thejack: 16.- gf6: ?
   Dec-01-16 Spassky vs Petrosian, 1969 (replies)
thejack: 13.f5 looks natural to me. What would have followed? I guess black would not take on f5, but it doesn´t look very ccomfortable if he leaves the pawn there either. To be honest, I don´t really understand the weakening 12.g6 in the first place.
   Jan-08-16 Capablanca vs Botvinnik, 1925 (replies)
thejack: People emphasize that Botvinnik was only 14 when this game was played, but what really amazes me is that he had learned to play chess at age 12, just two years before!!? And people say Fischer was naturally talented..
   Dec-04-15 Capablanca vs Janowski, 1911 (replies)
thejack: I would be curious to know what Kasparov had to say about 10.-b6. Does anyone own his MGP on Capablanca? I don´t like this move at all [it creates a glaring hole on c6] , but neither Capablanca himself nor Lakdawala in his new book criticize it!?
   Apr-10-15 Capablanca vs Colle, 1929 (replies)
thejack: White gets two pieces for a rook after 11.-Bf5 12. dc6 Ng3 13.Qd1, but it may be a little early to resign.
