   Jul-08-20 Petrosian vs V Makogonov, 1949
woldsmandriffield: An interesting yet strange game. Andrew Soltis relates that Petrosian believed he was losing at the adjournment. Kasparian helped him analyse and found a study-like sequence - presumably commencing 42 g6+ Yet White appears to be winning and the calm 42 Re2 Rf7 43 Nxd4! ...
   Jul-07-20 M Stolberg vs Smyslov, 1940
woldsmandriffield: A sublime ending. 34..Nc4! was so much better than 34..Nb5 35 Kc2 Rc8 36 Nc5 e5 37 Kd3 and Black's advantage has disappeared. Smyslov utilises his K-side pawn mass to make progress after 34..Nc4, supported by his King. So simple yet so instructive. 39..g4! created a ...
   Jul-05-20 Balashov vs Ulibin, 1988
woldsmandriffield: [DIAGRAM] White is two pawns up but Black retains chances of mounting a blockade &/or capturing one of the pawns. The right plan here was to go 65 Kh3! sheltering from checks. Now if Black goes 65..Ra4 White has 66 Rf4 threatening e5, while if 65..Re2 getting behind the ...
   Jul-04-20 A Rudolf vs K Abdulla, 2016 (replies)
woldsmandriffield: [DIAGRAM] How should White get out of check? 66 Kg1 guarded h2 but was not correct. The right path was 66 Kf1! Kf3 67 Rf6+ Kg3 68 h7 Rh2 and only now 69 Kg1 and if 69..a2 70 Ra6 = The move played lost instructively.
   Jul-04-20 Menchik vs C A S Damant, 1932 (replies)
woldsmandriffield: We are missing 70 odd moves here!
   Jul-03-20 A Rudolf vs T Abrahamyan, 2007
woldsmandriffield: [DIAGRAM] Black played 64..Qe6+ and drew because after the Queen trade the King is checked when White promotes. Correct was 64..Qd6+! 65 Qxd6+ Kxd6 with a winning K+P ending.
   Jun-25-20 G Oparin vs Semyon Lomasov, 2017
woldsmandriffield: [DIAGRAM] 77 Bxf6+!! was a beautiful winning coup.
   Jun-24-20 R Wojtaszek vs G Oparin, 2016
woldsmandriffield: [DIAGRAM] Black went 78..Kg8 but was left helpless after 79 Ra8+ Kh7 80 e6. The right direction was 78..Ke8! and there is no way through.
   Jun-21-20 Gipslis vs K Grigorian, 1964
woldsmandriffield: [DIAGRAM] Gipslis went 56 Rb8 perhaps counting on 56..Ra5? 57 Rb4 Ke7 58 Kb6 Ra8 59 Rd4 +- But Gregorian found the stronger 56..Ke7! 58 Rb5 Rf1 57 a5 Rc1+ 58 Kb7 Kd7 59 Rd5+ Ke6. Now 60 Rd3 Rb1+ 61 Ka7 Rb2 and Black’s King is close enough to the RP: 62 a7 Ke7! 63 a7 Rb1 64
   Jun-18-20 A Harley vs Igor Ivanov, 1991
woldsmandriffield: [DIAGRAM] White failed to go to the short side: 63 Kg1 Rc1+ 64 Kh2 Ra1 65 Rb5 = Ivanov took full advantage of 63 Ke1? and converted easily.
