   May-22-08 Prince Dadian vs Kolisch, 1867 (replies)
tor2ga: I am curious about the possibility, suggested in several comments, that this game was a composition. 17.Bb5+ is a disastrous blunder. White is obviously lost after 17...Nc6 -- the attack sputters out, down a full rook and several pawns, no real control of the d-file, and Black is ...
   Mar-11-08 F A Foulds vs Lang, 1956 (replies)
tor2ga: Heh :) I don't see the French Advanced lines very often, so it took a second to figure out how White avoids losing a pawn after 6. Bd3. I wonder if Lang was pondering a similar question. Foulds, it seems, had no such difficulties.
   Feb-25-08 Shulman vs S T Ansell, 2002 (replies)
tor2ga: <PinnedPiece> -- Crafty instantly finds the mate-in-six. This is expected: all the moves are forcing or forced, and it's a common heuristic (for both engines and people) that one should first search down such narrow lines.
   Jul-31-07 J Polgar vs Onischuk, 2007 (replies)
tor2ga: ... Sorry, should have said "Black <was> threading a needle."
   May-16-07 Korchnoi vs A Petersons, 1965 (replies)
tor2ga: I am trying to fathom 22...f5. Instead Black can capture 22...Qxa2 to create a passer, then follow up with Qc2! From c2, the queen threatens multiple White pieces: White's pieces get jammed up defending each other, trying to drive away the queen would waste much time, and if White ...
   Mar-19-07 Bobotsov vs A Kolarov, 1971 (replies)
tor2ga: <OhioChessFan>: After your line -- up to 19.Qc3 -- e5 secures Black's position.

tor2ga: Dear Santa, I have been good this year -- but not at chess. Please send me a premium membership, world peace, and a pony. Thank you, <tor2ga>
   Nov-28-06 The World vs A Nickel, 2006 (replies)
tor2ga: <Tabanus, Karpova>: I would like to suggest 39.Rf3, likely followed by 40.Qd4. The central pawns are preserved, and we prepare to invade on the queenside while preventing Black from the same.
   Oct-11-06 Tkachiev vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2006 (replies)
tor2ga: Neat. I thought about Nb6 to drive away the defense against White's passer. However this fails because Black can push e5-e4! at the right moment and block White's bishop. If Black had chosen some other move besides 21...e5 (admittedly his options were limited at that point), then ...
   Sep-30-06 Razuvaev vs Lputian, 1979 (replies)
tor2ga: Oh, D'OH! Silly me :-P
