   Dec-09-21 M Gerusel vs Lombardy, 1957 (replies)
Dezaxa: 15 ... Nc5 immediately is fine. After 16 Qb5 Black can still play Na5. Neither knight can be captured because of the fork at b3.
   Feb-13-21 E Efthimiou vs D Hrisanthopoulos, 1979
Dezaxa: Stockfish considers 9. f4 to be much stronger than 9. d4. After 9... Qxe4, 10. f5 Kd8 11. fxe6 Qxe6 12 d4 White has a definite plus. 9... Qf6 is no good because after 10 f5 Nd8 11 d4 White's position is overwhelming.
   Jul-23-20 A Vaisser vs I Sokolov, 1989 (replies)
Dezaxa: Black overlooked 22... Qc7! winning. 23 Rh8 Bh8 24 Qh4 Nd3 25 Bd3 Qc1 26 Ke2 Qh1. Black also missed 30... Bf3 leading to mate.
   Aug-19-16 M Patraw vs J Bick, 2004
Dezaxa: Interesting gambit, though I suspect with good defence it leaves White without adequate compensation. I'm dubious about the 14...f5, 17...g5 plan - much too loosening. White missed a win with 28 Be6! After 28... Be6 29 R8e6 Be1 30 Rf6 Kf6 31 Qb2 wherever the Black king goes one of ...
   Aug-01-16 L Prins vs W J Fry, 1950 (replies)
Dezaxa: I think I would have preferred 27 Nf8, cashing two pieces for the queen. After the game continuation, 27 Qf5 Kg8 28 Qd5, why doesn't Black play 28... Nf7? White is better, but it is not so decisive.
   Jun-23-16 K Ulanowski vs E Kustal, 2009 (replies)
Dezaxa: This was a rather inaccurate game. 17...ef5 is an important error and greatly underestimates the momentum of White's subsequent pawn advances. 22... Qc4 is a horrible blunder, but White did not punish it. 23. h5, intending 24 Ne7 wins immediately. 25 Qe4 is also weak compared with a4
   Jan-11-16 S Bjerke vs M Freitag, 2014 (replies)
Dezaxa: Manfred Freitag = Man Friday. Were his parents having a laugh?
   Mar-09-15 B Barlow vs R D de Coverly, 1988
Dezaxa: I'm not convinced. Seems to me that White stood much better all the way through the game until the howler 24 Rxg3 which loses quickly. Instead 24 cxd6 and Black can safely resign.
   Dec-13-14 E Diemer vs K Locher, 1948 (replies)
Dezaxa: 15... Bxa3 may be a little better than Kg7, but I suspect not much. After 16 Nce4 Be7 17 Kb1 White's attack resumes and the missing a pawn doesn't really matter. Black must have gone astray much earlier.
   Oct-29-14 T Schmehl vs A Simonov, 2004 (replies)
Dezaxa: After 16...Kg6 17 Qg4 f5 18 exf6 Kxf6 19 Nxe6, if Black plays 19 Qe8 then 20 Nf4 looks stronger than Qxg7 to me. It threatens Rf1 with gain of tempo followed by Qg6 mate and Black must give up a lot of material. I still think 19...dxe6 is best for Black, with 20 Bg5 Kf7 21 Bxd8 Rcxd8
