   Mar-15-06 Averbakh vs V Osnos, 1965 (replies)
zhentil: <fezzik> I think you are slightly confused. This is not a positional exchange sacrifice. It leads by force to a winning material advantage. It is difficult to say that it is a precursor to anything, since Anderssen and Morphy were sacrificing material for forced wins a hundred
   Mar-13-06 P H Nielsen vs Goldin, 2001 (replies)
zhentil: <emperor> I think the probability that white calculated this to the pawn promotion is zero. The sacrifice (queen for rook and knight) is minimal, and white obviously got a lot of play after it. This (along with the meandering in moves 36-40 (time trouble, I presume)) points to
   Mar-01-06 Timman vs Karpov, 1979 (replies)
zhentil: <seeminor> I think this is why Karpov was so dangerous at his peak. As he aged, Karpov developed almost a mannered disdain for pawn weaknesses. In this game, he showed no hesitation in accepting them. A very powerful display.

zhentil: <morphymatt> It's actually mate in 10. 1... Qxa2+ 2. Kxa2 Bd3+ 3. Kb3 c4+ 4. Kb4 Nc6+ 5. Kb5 Nd4+ 6. Kb6 Rfb8+ 7. Kc7 Nb5+ 8. Kc6 (8. Kd7? Ra7+ 9. Kc6 Rc7#) Ra6+ 9. Kd7 Ra7+ 10. Kc6 Nd4#
   Mar-01-06 Botvinnik vs Ragozin, 1940 (replies)
zhentil: After 43... Nxe2 44.Qxe2 Qxh4 45. e6 Qf4+ black takes control of e5 and white can lay down his king.
   Mar-01-06 Petrosian vs Y Kotkov, 1946 (replies)
zhentil: <Karpova> As the notes indicate, 5... cxd4 would equalize at once, when a3 looks more and more like a wasted tempo, and the knight belongs on c3. Petrosian was not known for his incisive opening play, but in this instance, the weak reaction by his (apparently) much weaker ...
   Mar-01-06 Koneru vs Z Nemeth, 2005 (replies)
zhentil: <viky> In your line, you hung your queen.
   Feb-28-06 Maric vs Gligoric, 1962 (replies)
zhentil: <patzer2> The Complete Bg5 Najdorf by Nunn is great (if very, very dense). It demonstrates the forced draws in the PP. I think that this is the main reason that Kasparov explored Qc7 against Bg5. There are just too many forced draws in the PP, and the "main line" (Be7) is ...
   Feb-24-06 Janowski vs Capablanca, 1916 (replies)
zhentil: <offramp> Yes he does. 5. cxd5 refutes it. Read the above comments again.
   Feb-22-06 De Wind vs Timman, 1965 (replies)
zhentil: <emperoratahulpa> A number of grandmasters who have made a career out of playing the Fianchetto Variation against the Benoni would, I'm sure, take issue with your simplistic indictment. Ask Viktor Korchnoi if he thinks fianchettoing against the Benoni is a mistake.
