Nov-24-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: After 8.e5? white never recovered.
Nov-24-06  syracrophy: What a doom with the great black central pawn mass! They advanced as molten lava!
Nov-24-06  syracrophy: For another great game of a massive central pawn mass here it is Bogoljubov vs Reti, 1923
Nov-24-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Well pointed out, <syracrophy>!
Mar-11-07  cpresoz: And continuing my tagging along behind <syracrophy> with cross references: see the very aesthetic central pawn mass finale in J Esser vs Marshall, 1911. While you're at it, click <syracrophy>'s profile for some very interesting chess problems.
Jan-04-09  UnsoundHero: Check out Formanek - Lein. It's the most classic pawn mass game of all !
Jan-04-09  ughaibu: E Formanek vs A Lein, 1977 Why is it that black always wins these? Is it just that a mass of black pawns is visually more impressive than a mass of white pawns?
Jan-05-09  ughaibu: Another black win: Gufeld vs Kavalek, 1962 Do any white wins qualify? Kramnik vs Kasparov, 1994 Geller vs P Dubinin, 1947
