   Mar-12-20 Ribli vs Karpov, 1980 (replies)
tinnderbox: Ribli didn't beat the former, but the *current* world champion. In 1980 Karpov was reigning supreme and lost very rarely. Around move 30 though it was beginning to dawn on the spectators (including me) that Ribli wasn't just playing for a draw. When the game was adjourned the ...
   Jan-05-20 Hort vs Gligoric, 1970
tinnderbox: Hort defended well in extreme time trouble, up to the losing 38. Re1?? White has two ways to save the draw. a) 38. Qb1 blocks all black attacks. The computer evaluation is 0.00 after 38. ... Qf4 39. Qb7 Qa4 40. Qb1 Qf4 etc. b) 38. Rd6 Bxa2 39. Rxa2 c2+ 40. Rxf6 Qd4+ 41. Rb2 Qa4+
   Jan-05-20 Gligoric vs Polugaevsky, 1970
tinnderbox: For almost 30 moves the ending was a draw. The tournament book mentions that during the adjournment Gligoric was convinced it was a draw. Spassky thought so too - but Polugaevsky kept on trying to win. 102. Ba4 is the losing move. Bh5 would still be a draw for white. But note ...
   May-25-19 J K Duda vs W So, 2019
tinnderbox: Unfortunately for Duda this quick win didn't help him progress. He lost the next day after So out-calculated him in a very tactical Sicilian. Then, during the tiebreaks, he blundered in the second rapid game and went out without scoring any World Cup Points.
   Jul-15-18 G Garcia vs Ivkov, 1965 (replies)
tinnderbox: This is what renowned Grandmaster and writer Hein Donner (Netherlands) wrote about this game in 1965 (translated from Dutch, of course) : Ivkov was in time trouble, but that doesn't explain it. On move 36 Garcia had no threats anymore. Ivkov could just play four neutral moves. ...
   Jan-05-18 Robert E Byrne vs Ulf Andersson, 1979
tinnderbox: Ah, memories. I was there when this fantastic game was played. When somebody reported Ulf had played 18. ... Nfg4 everybody thought he was joking...
   Sep-01-17 Keres vs Petrosian, 1959 (replies)
tinnderbox: Unfortunately the final combination turns out to be incorrect. Instead of 50. Be2 Keres could have played 50. Nf3! There are no good queen moves. After 50 ... Qh5 51. Be2 the queen can no longer take on f4. 50. ... Qh6 runs into 51. Rxd6 Qxd6 52. bxc5. But after 50. Nf3 exf3 51. ...
