   Oct-07-22 Bird vs Lasker, 1899 (replies)
BickeDag: You can't afford to mess around in this variation of the Scotch. for instance, 7... h6 should be marked with ?? because after 8. e5 Nd5 9. Qg4, black is lost.
   Aug-16-22 Velimirovic vs D Rajkovic, 1971 (replies)
BickeDag: Games like this are always satisfying. People who put too much trust into their engines will never be able to appreciate the move 10. h4!!, and many others like it will be overlooked in their games.
   Jun-15-22 Karpov vs A Zaitsev, 1970
BickeDag: The 21... Nf6+ line leads to a draw by perpetual checking at the end. There is no forced win for black.
   Oct-30-21 Carlsen vs S Nyysti, 2002
BickeDag: 4. a3 may look strange but playing 5. Nxe5 actually shows deep understanding of the typical Halloween Gambit lines. In the usual lines after: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Nxe5?! Nxe5 5. d4 Ng6. white is practically losing by force and has very questionable compensation. ...

BickeDag: Another delightful Dutch name.
   Jul-04-21 Tarrasch vs Yates, 1910
BickeDag: Funny how Tarrasch thought Yates was a bad player. He may have been mediocre in 1910, but won this game and later on he finished higher than Tarrasch in most of the tournaments they both attended. Perhaps this tournament was what motivated Yates to improve faster.
   Jul-04-21 Yates vs Alekhine, 1924 (replies)
BickeDag: <kbob> It's true. As it happens, this is the second game in the tournament book. With both the chess blindness in the opening analysis as well as allowing the unplayed 30. Nh4!!, I feel like I should be looking very carefully at each move (which isn't a bad thing for ...
   Jul-02-21 Shulman vs J Hellsten, 1996
BickeDag: This Nimzo-Indian transposed into a line of the Benoni where white goes Ne2-Ng3. I really like what white did with 14. h3 and 15. Qc2; they were "housekeeping" waiting moves, waiting for black to commit to h5 which allowed 16. Bg5! with an excellent pin. I'm not sure why black ...
   May-19-21 Lenderman vs J Bellon Lopez, 2010
BickeDag: After white's 15th move, Black's fate was sealed. I've always found these positions where black castles queenside in the slav to be very suspicious, here is a great miniature demonstrating this.

BickeDag: An unfortunate tournament for Turco. He almost pulled a Moreau
