   Jan-13-11 Tata Steel Group A (2011) (replies)
Arbiter58: <Dredge Rivers: Why, oh why did we bother saving these guys during WWI, WWII, and the Cold War?> The US participated in the war because it was attacked and it allied with the European forces BECAUSE IT WAS IN ITS OWN INTEREST. And Europe paid back with political influence ...
   Sep-20-10 J Alfred vs P Walsh, 2005 (replies)
Arbiter58: Was looking for the trap, but there is none. 21.. Qxc1+, 22 Bxc1 Rxc1+ 23 Qf1 Rxf1+ 24 Kxf1 25 Bxe4. All forced. 2 pieces up. time to give up latest...
   Jul-29-10 Adams vs Topalov, 2006 (replies)
Arbiter58: <Lt. Col. Majid: Adams has always owned Topalov. Will 2007 be different? We shall see> just checked the database. 41 games. 12 wins by adams, 9 by topalov, 20 draws. adams has a positive record, yes, but its far from owning.
   May-31-10 Anderssen vs J Finch, 1851 (replies)
Arbiter58: <apiana: Qg1# Rxg1 Rh3 mate does the trick too> apart from the fact that gxh3 takes the 'mating' rook and white wins :)
   May-21-10 NN vs Greco, 1620 (replies)
Arbiter58: <David2009: NN played very well (game 73) until he blundered at move 37: Now 37 g5?? surrenders the white squares: instead 37.Kf2 holds: e.g. 37...Be4 38.Kg3 Kg6 39.Kh4 Bf3 40.Kg3 with a draw> NN had no good move at this time any more. 37 Kf2 hxg4 38 hxg4 Bxg4 wins a pawn ...
   May-18-10 F Lazard vs Tartakower, 1929
Arbiter58: <ungeneral: I think 28. Re1 would have saved the day> I dont think that at all. 28..Rxe1 29 Qxe1 Qxh2+ is forced losing a pawn. Then either 30 Qe2 Qe5 with clear advantages (30 Qd2 QxQ 31 BxQ Bxa2) or 30 Kb1 (30 Kc1 Qf4+ or 30 Kd1 Qxb2) a3 31 bxa3 Qxa2+ 31 Kc1 ...
   Dec-25-09 Szen vs La Bourdonnais, 1836 (replies)
Arbiter58: al wazir: Here's how I see the continuation. It's not quite trivial: 42. Ng1 Bd8 43. Nh3 Ke8 44. Ng5 Kd7 45. f7 Be7 46. Nh7 Kd8 47. f8=Q+ Bxf8 48. Nxf8 Ke7 49. Nxg6+ Kf7 50. a5. Very nicely done. Nothing to add. All forced. Any other move than 42 Bd8 loses in one or the other way ...
   Jul-17-09 Rublevsky vs C D'Amore, 2000 (replies)
Arbiter58: After 9 Bxg5 hxg5 10 Bxf7+ Black seems to be doomed as plenty of others here and also I now analyzed. I was wondering if anybody has some thoughts on declining the sacrifice. E.g. 9 Bxg5 Bb7 (threatening d5 with the idea to either take the bishop g5 after exd5 or Nxd5 when Bxf7 is
   Jul-14-09 Anatoly Karpov (replies)
Arbiter58: Thats USSR vs the world. The famous one with Fischer on board 2 conceding Board 1 to Larsen. USSR had 5 world champions.
   Jul-14-09 Donostia Chess Festival (2009) (replies)
Arbiter58: <The Rocket: Compare bobby fischers comeback in 1992 were he was in a much worse shape than karpov, and not been active since 1972, and he still played like a champion in several games... I still think this is a weak result for karpov regardless of how much he has played ...
