   May-27-22 Pilnik vs Najdorf, 1942
Agferna: A little history on Pilnik’s pride for this game. This game actually has a name: “La Perla de Pilnik”, i.e., “The Pilnik Pearl”. You can imagine he frequently showed it and taught it to many audiences. He was very proud of this game a taught a group of youngsters in ...
   Mar-09-22 G Garcia vs D Gurevich, 1986 (replies)
Agferna: Saddened to learn Gildardo passed. Great game! A nicer finish with forced checks to mate was with 39. Ne6+ Kh6 Qf4+ Kh5 Qf5+ Kh6 Qh3+ Kg6 Rg8+ (Nf4+ also leads to mate) Kf7 Rg7+ Ke8 Qh5+ Rf7 Qf7#. But 2 moves before the time control might have been short of time. Cheers
   Dec-08-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
Agferna: Magnus’ magic number is 1 point to clinch. A draw secures a tied match into tiebreakers. Either a win or two draws wins the match. Nepo has to score 3.5 out of 4 to tie the match; 4 out of 4 to win. Tall task.
   Oct-11-21 Nunn vs Bronstein, 1975 (replies)
Agferna: Black also manages to fianchetto his king knight, but in his opponent’s king side! Had the game continued with the natural 21.Re2 Bf3 22.Nf3 Bb2 23.Re8 Re8 24. Nbd2 Ba1 25.Kg2 with black a clear exchange up, would have also fianchettoed his king bishop in his opponent’s queen ...
   Jun-25-21 I Odesskij vs M Tokmachev, 2001
Agferna: Nice finish would have been 33. Qd8 Kh7 34. Rh6! Cheers
   Jun-03-21 Chandler vs C Crouch, 1995
Agferna: Awesome game for Black. Incredibly frustrating for White: Ne3, Rd4, Rb4, Rb2, etc., and other equally annoying sub-variations that deny White a playable line. Possibly the best chance for White was to jettison the exchange with 23 Re3! Bf4 24 Qc3, with a pawn and strong center as ...
   Jun-01-21 Spassky vs Fischer, 1992 (replies)
Agferna: For each published brilliant sacrifice and attack that successfully pushes on to a spectacular victory, I bet there are 5 to 10 unpublished attacking flops and defensive wins like this one. Of course coming from the Great Boris Spassky is truly sad. Yes, sadly the pun is absolutely ...
   May-23-21 J Bodvarsson vs F Olafsson, 1947 (replies)
Agferna: Come on folks let’s not make too much of this game. Likely a simple touch-o. Went for the g-pawn to play g3 and to his dismay touched or grabbed the h-pawn instead. A mere case of imprecise eye-hand coordination, in a game as chess in which precision is everything. Tons of ...
   May-23-21 Fridrik Olafsson (replies)
Agferna: Glad Chessgames showed today one of Olaf’s brilliant games. Met him once, while FIDE president. Displayed a calm, quiet, listening, sympathizing, trustworthy intelligence. An extraordinary human being. Long live!!!
   Apr-23-21 Giri vs Ding Liren, 2021
Agferna: This is a winner take all tournament! You wanna a shot at Magnus and keep Nepo within reach? You gotta play aggressive. Good for Anish!
