   Apr-20-17 Vasiukov vs Spassky, 1959 (replies)
Breyannis Nektarios: <Howard: But 36.f5 is not a checking move>. You are right, of course..
   Nov-04-15 Petrosian vs Stein, 1967 (replies)
Breyannis Nektarios: On the 22nd move Stein could have offered an interesting Queen sacrifice: 22...Qg5!? 23.Nf3,hg 24.Nxg5 (24.hg is a draw, as in the game. I wonder what would have been the choice of the cautious Petrosian) gf+ 25.Kxf2,Bxg5. Black has two minor pieces and a pawn for the ...

Breyannis Nektarios: Hi BLarsen1967! Greetings from Greece! On the "Larsen-Polugaevsky Le Havre 1966" game page ( Larsen vs Polugaevsky, 1966 ) you wrote that you have Lasen's annotations of the game. I wonder, would it be possible to share them? Or send me a link (if one exists)?
   Mar-31-12 Kavalek vs Uhlmann, 1976 (replies)
Breyannis Nektarios: 30...f4 gives better survival chances. 32.Ba3!?
   Feb-10-12 R Byrne vs Korchnoi, 1979 (replies)
Breyannis Nektarios: Another sturdy defensive performance from "Victor the Terrible". Picture the position after 16...hg: Exposed King, most of his pieces on the other side of the board, White has the initiative plus the two bishops... The manouevre Nc6-d8-f7 to cover the dark squares on the
   Oct-22-11 A Nikitin vs Tal, 1966 (replies)
Breyannis Nektarios: Judging from the amount of hair on Tal's head (!), I seriously doubt if the footage above is from 1966. Perhaps it's from Tbilisi 1959?
   Jun-12-11 Keres vs E Walther, 1964 (replies)
Breyannis Nektarios: In fact, this is not the stem game. Keres-Matanovic, Moscow 1963, is the one. As for the game, I think a competent mythbuster may prove someday that in fact the position is not at all bad for Black after the simple 23...Qd7 (instead of the dreadful 23...Bg6). Indeed,
   Jan-17-11 Geller vs Spassky, 1965 (replies)
Breyannis Nektarios: A very interesting game, the first of the match. The critical line is (14...d4)15.Ne4!,Qe7(5) 16.Nxf6+,Qxf6 17.Rxc6,Qxc6 18.Bf3,Qc4 (or 18...Qc5) 19.Bxa8, which gives a clear advantage to White. Thus Spassky's piece sac (14...d4?!) seems to be speculative.
   May-30-10 Spassky vs Petrosian, 1966 (replies)
Breyannis Nektarios: Position after 20...Nb3: "Since the two White Bishops have already taken aim on the K-side, Petrosian tries to exchange one of them. It would be worthwhile at this point to think of a Bishop sacrifice: 21.Bxh6! and in case of to reply with 22.Re3 and White's ...
   Apr-27-10 Karpov vs Spassky, 1973 (replies)
Breyannis Nektarios: 1) Lopezexchange, you are absolutely right! Even in the final position Black is better, and it would have been worthwhile for Spassky to try to win. (Take notice: We are in the 7th round of a grandiose Soviet Championship, and Spassky wants to rehabilitate himself after ...
