   Feb-14-07 J Sarfati vs K Hornung, 1981 (replies)
Runemaster: A nice finish. 22...Rxh7 23.Bxh7 is mate by the three minor pieces.
   Jan-11-07 M Backman vs E Berg, 2006 (replies)
Runemaster: It looks like one of thse games where the higher-rated player took his opponent a bit lightly and regretted it. Black's opening is a bit loose, particularly with the 'g' pawn advance in front of his own king. If 18...Qxd6 19.Qg5+ gives perpetual check on g5 and h5. Black hoped ...
   Dec-21-06 Khenkin vs Morozevich, 1995 (replies)
Runemaster: <Abhinav> I think <erad>'s comment is reasonable. In the line you give above, after 33.cxd5 cxd5, Black's pawn structure is no worse than White's; that sequence has straightened out Black's doubled 'c' pawns and the isolated 'h' and 'f' pawns. White's backward 'b' ...

Runemaster: Now he looks like Elton John.
   Dec-13-06 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1955 (replies)
Runemaster: <Weeping Warrior> I have a Cadogan book of the 1987 WC match compiled from various Russian sources, in which this Spassky-Korcnoi is referred to. However, the annotator says that in Spassky Kprchnoi 1955, the moves ...cxd4/cxd4 been played before Bxf7+. In other words, it ...
   Dec-13-06 B Goldenov vs Nekrasov, 1953
Runemaster: More like <Necrosov>.
   Dec-12-06 K Vark vs R Etruk, 1971
Runemaster: <Kalju Vark v Rein Etruk>; light sabres at the ready.
   Dec-12-06 Kalju Vark (replies)
Runemaster: Great name. Kalju Vark vs Rein Etruk; what a contest! Vark faced some strong opposition, including Tal, Keres, Bronstein, Stein, Lutikov; it's tough out there in the Andromeda Galaxy.

Runemaster: <Benzol> At university we played the game of Rasselas. That meant reading Samuel Johnson in a cage; the last one to collapse from boredom was the winner.
   Dec-08-06 F Benko vs Keres, 1939 (replies)
Runemaster: <twin phoenix> Not sure whether you're joking, but <iron maiden> assumed the White player was Pal Benko, who would then have been 11 years old. As <WMD> pointed out, it was probably another Benko.
