May-23-11  ughaibu: Super-far-out. Makogonov's games seem to feature a lot of great knighty stuff.
Aug-12-11  Phony Benoni: An unusual position after <31.Kb4>: White's king attacks three unprotected pieces!

By the way, after 31...Rb3+ 32.Kxa5 Nb7+ ensures White doesn't get a passed pawn after 32...Rxb1 33.dxc5. Ingenious play on both sides.
