   Jul-31-10 Kotov vs Botvinnik, 1955 (replies)
GMMandetowitch: Outstanding game.Botninnik's domination of the light squares gives him the oportunity to trade into a won ending at the right time.
   Jun-22-10 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1974 (replies)
GMMandetowitch: A model attacking game by Karpov.Unlike some players may think,a good strategyst is first a good attacker.To dominate the art of positional play is also to master tactics and combinative play.Only then a player reaches full understanding not only of the static concepts,but of
   May-21-10 Janowski vs Capablanca, 1916 (replies)
GMMandetowitch: This game is a model example of the "principle of two weaknesses".Black combines the attack on both flanks to finally break through white's defence.Great game by Capa,altough 4-...Bf5 is nowadays considered a weak move,because 5-cxd5! and 6-Qb3!
   Feb-22-10 Breyer vs J Esser, 1917 (replies)
GMMandetowitch: Hey guys,I don't quite understand anything about this game.Ok,the move Bb1 altough not natural still has some logic in it,makes sense that Bxc4 helps black to get rid of the bad bishop,and Bb1 also creates the c2 square for a battery with the queen.But after that,Kf1 doesn't ...
   Feb-19-10 Karpov vs Sax, 1983 (replies)
GMMandetowitch: I tought Rd5 was a kind of positional sac,since he gave the exchange to gain control of the light squares.Altough he didn't had any straight forward win,black's king was stucked in the center,very hard to get out of there,and after some moves Karpov already had several pawns ...
   Feb-16-10 Euwe vs Reti, 1920 (replies)
GMMandetowitch: 25-Tdd8 was the sort of brilliant beautiful move which the player with the black pieces is likely to overlook.Amazing game by Euwe,altough the opening moves can look a bit weird for modern day chess,there was nothing wrong with them at all.I'm a big fan of this game ! ;)
   Dec-09-09 Marshall vs H Helms, 1897
GMMandetowitch: Great game,but actually black could have done the mating combination without taking the knight on e8.What can we infer from this? Number 1- Helms didn't see the combination right the way(which is quite unlikely to happen,since it was an easy mate-in-five) Number 2-Helms took ...
   Dec-05-09 P Kenny vs H Multhopp, 2001 (replies)
GMMandetowitch: A positional sacrifice,which is actually close to mating lol
   Nov-29-09 E Torre vs So, 2009 (replies)
GMMandetowitch: Yes,the presence of oppousite colored bishops favoured black with heavy pieces still on the board(also white was several pawns down).But ok,I don't think this game can be called a game of the day,white's play was so bad,black could simply kill evrything on his way without ...
   Nov-18-09 M Cuellar Gacharna vs Reshevsky, 1967 (replies)
GMMandetowitch: Needless to say,42-Re4 is much much stronger then Re1 or Rxh4,after which black can simply capture the queen.(In the case of the unbelievable Rxh4 with all that Idea of Rh7 Rg7 Bh7,I'll stop here,its just to slow,I wouldn't even calculate it in a real game,specially if I ...
