   Jul-07-14 G Mazzoni vs J Minaya, 1964 (replies)
v d pandit: I also thought of the move 30.Qg5. Initially it too looks to be mating but 30. --- Bh6 and White cannot mate. Black now guards both g7 and g8. If 31.Qxh6, Rg8.
   Jul-22-09 Korchnoi vs Short, 1987 (replies)
v d pandit: On many occasions, I notice difference in the opening as named here against that named in other sources. This particular opening 'chessgames' has named C10 (French Def) while another site names it A40. I think it is C10 only but what is A40 & what are its moves?
   Jul-19-09 Huahua Xu vs S Meenakshi, 2009
v d pandit: Though Meenakshi's win was expected as she was 210 Elo points above Huahua, the brilliant way in which she won is laudable.
   Jul-14-09 Morozevich vs Bruzon Batista, 2005
v d pandit: Leonard Barden has discussed the position after 55 --- Kg7 in his Column wherein he stated White had 3 options here 56 QXh4 or BXh4 or Qc7+ and that only 56 Qc7+ wins. 56 BXh4? Bc5 winning the Q; 56 QXh4? Qe3! when W had to give up his B by Bf2 to stop --- Qg1#.
   Jul-13-09 C Purdy vs M Napolitano, 1950 (replies)
v d pandit: Though he lost to Purdy (31 --- Nf3+?), Napolitano won maximum games (ten) in this CC Chp- one more than Purdy and Barda. With 10 wins and 3 losses he collected 10 Pts out of 13 and tied 2-3.
   Jul-13-09 G R Mitchell vs C Purdy, 1950 (replies)
v d pandit: This is the only game Purdy lost in this Chp which he won 10.5/13 (+9,=3,-1).
   Jul-05-09 D Laylo vs Sasikiran, 2009
v d pandit: After 45 --- Rxf4 0-1 in view of 46 e5 Bxe5! 47 Rxe5 Rxf3! 48 Qxd4 Rxe5 49 Bf4 Re1!! 50 Bxc7 Rh3#. Not 46 Be2 Rf1+ or 46 Bd1 Rfxe4+ 5 Kh1 Rxe1+ or 46 Kg1 Rxf3 etc.
   Aug-15-08 D V Hooper vs L Barden, 1952
v d pandit: White's 15 Bg5 looks to be an example of "Chess Blindness".
   Aug-15-08 Sengupta vs V Heinis, 2008 (replies)
v d pandit: After White's 19 Qd4, what was the immediate threat? Why Black gave up so meekly? What if Black replies with 19 --- Ne4?
