   Sep-11-21 Marshall vs Schlechter, 1905
nummerzwei: 41...h5 and 42...h4 is now standard, as in the well known games Capablanca vs Yates, 1930 and P Nikolic vs Ftacnik, 1997 . Then White has a very hard time. Instead, Schlechter was on his own and quickly conceded the second half-point.
   Aug-21-21 Petrosian vs Averbakh, 1966
nummerzwei: After 20 moves, Petrosian has set up a bind on the queenside (I'm unsure if I am going to call it a minority attack). In <Petrosian vs. the Elite> (2006), it was pointed out by Keene that this structure is a recurring feature in Petrosian's games. [DIAGRAM] White tries to ...
   Aug-01-21 B Adhiban vs Karjakin, 2018
nummerzwei: 29.Rxa7 offers no prospects at all. If White wanted to play doggedly for the win, he would retain both sets of rooks with 29.Ree1. It seems that Adhiban did not fancy his chances one bit.
   Aug-01-21 Petrosian vs Benko, 1963
nummerzwei: This is the position after 28.gxf3: [DIAGRAM] In the game, Benko played the ugly 28...Qg5+?! which leaves White clearly for choice. Instead, Raymond Keene proposed 28...Nxd3 29.Qxd3 Qg5+ 30.Kf1 Qxh5 31.Rxa6?! (31.Qe4 improves) ...Ra8 32.Rea1 Rxa6 33.Rxa6 Qxe5 with a likely draw.
   Jul-22-21 D Quizon vs S Megaranto, 2019
nummerzwei: The position after 92.Kg5? Ke4 is a textbook draw. Instead 92.Rh4! Kg3 93.Ke4! wins.
   Jul-15-21 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1980
nummerzwei: Korchnoi could have played more actively with 13.a4 or 16.Bg3 (intending 17.f4 and 18.Bh4).
   Jul-05-21 Gavrikov vs Ashley, 1997
nummerzwei: After 35...Ra2?! (35...h5!), White could have caused more problems in the 4 vs. 3 rook endgame with 36.h5!: [DIAGRAM] White plans to activate his king via h3 and g4. Black cannot prevent this with 36...h6 37.Kh2 Rc2 38.Kh3 Rf2 since he is in zugzwang after 39.Ra7!. In this ...
   Jun-12-21 Morozevich vs Carlsen, 2007
nummerzwei: From move ten to move fifteen, my database has a different move order: [DIAGRAM] <10.Nbd2 Nc5 11.a4 Nxb3 12.Qxb3 0-0 13.axb5 axb5 14.Rxa8 Qxa8 15.Qxb5> I don't know which is correct - after all, this game was broadcast live. Originally, I was interested in the position ...
   Jun-12-21 N Kosintseva vs Yifan Hou, 2006
nummerzwei: After the strange 67…Rc8+?! and 68…Rc1?, Kosintseva had another opportunity to force the win: [DIAGRAM] Instead of 73.Kxf5?, White should go straight for the rook with 73.b7! Rb8 74.Kd6 Kf6, and now comes the point: [DIAGRAM] 75.Rb6!! (pushing Black’s king to the wrong ...
   May-05-21 Epishin vs Zsuzsa Polgar, 1992
nummerzwei: After 25...c5!? 26.Rd1 Qe7 27.Bxb7 Qxb7 28.Qxc5 Qf3 Black has freed her game for just a pawn and should be able to draw.
