   May-29-22 Halprin vs Pillsbury, 1900
Fischerfriend: Early improvement: After 14.b6 there's no need to take the b pawn. Black has the so desired castling within reach and had better play: 14..0-0! There might follow: - b6 followed by Bb7 and pawn a7 is nothing to be afraid of for Black - 15.Ra7: Rb8 and there's no

Fischerfriend: It's funny to realise that Black could've taken on e4 with great effect 3 moves earlier. The sacrificed N is won back very soon, after which black has the better game. 9..Ne4:! with possible variations: 10.Ne4: Qe7 and now - 11.Qd3 Bf5 12.Nd6+ cd 13.Qf5: Qe3:+ - 11.Qc2 ...
   Nov-19-21 D Reizniece-Ozola vs A Zatonskih, 2001
Fischerfriend: 22..Qc7 is more likely, as 22..Qe7 loses the Q for nothing...
   Jun-07-21 A Schwarz vs Paulsen, 1880
Fischerfriend: 20..Ne4 is a cunning move. 21.Ne4: de 22.Qd6: Rd7! -+ White overlooked the other trap Paulsen had prepared: 21.Nb5:? ab 22.Qd4 Qf6! and if 23.Qb6:, recovering the piece, loses the Q after 23..Bh2:+ (as Honza Carvenka also pointed out in 2010, I see now.) Simple ...
   Dec-14-20 S Kristjansson vs G Quillan, 2005 (replies)
Fischerfriend: Strange moves! 5..Qg2: wins a pawn 7.b4 wins a piece
   Jun-24-20 Rublevsky vs A Obukhov, 1994
Fischerfriend: 21..Rac8 has a point: 22.Qa7: Bd7! (taking away square e7 for the white Q and attacking Na4)with advantage, e.g. 23.Qa5 Ba4:! (24.Qa4: loses the Q) Ra8 with good play for black. So the a pawn is not for free!
   Mar-14-20 Beliavsky vs Huebner, 1981
Fischerfriend: Oeps, big mistake I just posted: I suggested 23.Bd3 Qa5, but that fails convincingly to 24.Bg6 mate! Better is as follows: Kovacevic - Marinovic 1979, there followed: 23.Bd3 Rg8 24.Qh6 Kd7 25.Qh7 Rg4! 26.Rf7 Qa3! and black won quickly.
   Dec-21-19 Short vs Timman, 1996 (replies)
Fischerfriend: 25.Nf4! was the best way out, because: 25.Kh1 Qe3+ 26.Kh1 Nd3 27.Rf1 only move, and now a. 27..Rf2 28.Ng3 Rf1:+! 29.Qf1: (29.Nf1:? leads to a famous mate) Nf2+ perpetual check. b. 27..Nf2+ 28.Rf2: Rf2: 29.Ng3 Ra2: and will have a tough job, drawing.
   Sep-14-19 J A Curdo vs Kudrin, 1998
Fischerfriend: Let me correct my variations from 2 eears ago: + In variation b1. 29.Bf4 is an alternative. After 29.Bf4 Be4: 30.Bg5:+ Kh7 (not 30..Kg5: 31.Qg5:+ Bg6 32.f4+ etc.) 31.Qf3! Be5+ 32.g3 Rac8 black is on top. In the variation I gave in 2017, with 29.Rh4+ , black had better play ...
   May-04-19 T Barnes vs Morphy, 1858 (replies)
Fischerfriend: 38.Rb5! gave white the better game, at least a draw was feasible: a. 38..c5 39.h5+ Kh7 40.Rb8 a4 41.Rff8! g6 42.Rf7+ Bg7 43.Rbb7 +- b. 38..h5! 39.Rg5+ Kf6 40.Rbg7: a4 a3 42.R2g6+ Kf7 43.Rc6 Rd2 44.Ra6 a2 = or 40..c4 c3 42.Rc7 c2 43.Ra5: or 43.Rc2: =
