   Nov-18-19 A J van den Hoek vs Euwe, 1942
tjipa: A pretty wild, interesting game. Too bad that van den Hoek perished in the war at such a young age.
   Nov-12-19 V S Levchenkov vs S J Mortensen, 2012
tjipa: I guess the score is faulty, and there should be19.Qe2, not Qc2. The latter makes 24.g3?? Qxe4?? quite inexplicable. And the last white move was probably 65.Nd4+, otherwise the black resignation does not make sense.
   Oct-29-19 Karpov vs Yusupov, 1986
tjipa: It seems to me, the game could be drawn via 52...a2 53.Nb3 Kf6.
   Oct-24-19 Korchnoi vs Gurgenidze, 1967
tjipa: A very interesting strategic game, ended by a nice double pawn sac in order to force a draw by perpetual. I like Gurgenidze's play here a lot.
   Oct-22-19 H Ohman vs A Sildmets, 1962
tjipa: Agreeing a draw in the final position might be explained only by severe time pressure of the black (or a database error).
   Oct-22-19 B Katalymov vs Suetin, 1967
tjipa: Nicely crazy game! A provocative opening met by matching opposition.
   Dec-03-18 Skembris vs Polugaevsky, 1980 (replies)
tjipa: A wild game! The Greek underdog sacks a pawn, then an exchange against Polugaevsky and then makes a draw from a position of force! Nice meeting you, Mr. Skembris!
   Nov-25-18 Lanka vs Geller, 1992 (replies)
tjipa: A subtle strategic masterpiece by Lanka. Deserves to be added to his notable games.
   Nov-25-18 Zigurds Fridrikhovich Lanka (replies)
tjipa: Zigurds Lanka is a Latvian grandmaster, so it is absolutely not needed to add "Fridrikhovich" to his name - which is a formal Russian form of address, including father's name. Esp., because even Karpov and Kasparov are listed here just by their first name and not as Garry Kimovich or ...
   Feb-18-18 Ivars Alvils Dahlberg
tjipa: In Latvia, his homeland, his last name is spelled Dālbergs. Upon arrival in US, my guess is the long ā was ditched first due to its nonexistence in the English alphabet, then substituted with ah - to make the pronunciation resemble the original name. Also the Latvian ending ...
