   Sep-20-20 Spassky vs A Matanovic, 1962
 
tigreton: What amazes me the most about this game is that Spassky keeps transferring his slow attack from one file to another, making Black's defence harder and harder. First it seems he is going to break with f5, later you see he is targeting the g-file, but out of the blue he plays g5, Kg2
 
   Sep-18-20 Spassky vs E Lobron, 1987
 
tigreton: Black was trying to build a kind of fortress with ...b6 and e5, but Spassky prevents it through e5 and b6!, not allowing the dark square bishop to obtain a good defended post, and breaking black pieces coordination. Great game!
 
   Sep-13-20 O Neikirch vs Botvinnik, 1960
 
tigreton: Nice coordination from the black pieces.
 
   Jul-13-20 Vitiugov vs A Aleksandrov, 2015
 
tigreton: What a fearless king!
 
   Jun-21-20 Benko vs Smyslov, 1949
 
tigreton: Pure Smyslov, simple but nice. The constant pressure of Black pieces over the centre and the a-pawn eventually makes White collapse. I like 28 ... Ra4 and 30 ... Qa5, making impossible to avoid the invasion with Rc3. The main mistake is 30. f3, which seriously weakens the second ...
 
   May-31-20 Petrosian vs Smyslov, 1949
 
tigreton: The way Smyslov slowly restricts White pieces in the endgame is really impressive. No doubt Petrosian, who was 20 years old at that time, learnt a lot from it.
 
   May-12-20 Zsofia Polgar vs Adams, 1990
 
tigreton: It seems Adams saw all the line when he played 13 ... 0-0-0, quite a lot moves before. I think it would be great if politicians and experts all around the world were able to anticipate problems the way some GMs do.
 
   May-08-20 J Garcia Padron vs Korchnoi, 1981
 
tigreton: I can't help admiring Korchnoi's play.
 
   Apr-26-20 Smyslov vs Keres, 1948
 
tigreton: Smyslov himself wrote that 14 ... bc6 would have been a better move, because the bishop would defend the weak pawn on c6. In addition to that, I should say that the light square bishop could also help Black's counterattack on the kingside. In the game, Smyslov played the ...
 
   Apr-21-20 Kosten vs Adams, 1990
 
tigreton: I find instructive the way Adams doesn't mind losing some tempi with his light square bishop in order to provoke the advance of white pawns, first playing Bc8-e6-c8, reaching a kind of King's Indian Defence structure, and later with Bc8-a6, gaining the b2 pawn, because the pin ...
