I enjoy looking at classic tactical open games with bold sacrifices. I also have an online archive of Chess variants and other abstract games:

   Sep-07-22 Dominguez Perez vs Niemann, 2022
Goldrider: Since this tournament is under a cloud of unfounded accusations that Niemann cheated, it’s very telling that Niemann, as Black, was losing until 37.Nxb5? For Niemann to be cheating in this game would require him to have some kind of mind control ability.
   Sep-07-22 Niemann vs Firouzja, 2022 (replies)
Goldrider: One thing to keep in mind that some people might have missed: The Saint Lewis Chess club has been using metal detector wands to check players in these elite tournaments long before the day of this game. It’s standard procedure; the STLChessClub has been running a tight ship, ...
   Aug-07-22 Polgar vs Carlsen, 2022 (replies)
Goldrider: FSR: Magnus is, so far, +5-0=2 at the Chess Olympiad, including a mate on the board against a 2300 player. So, he’s still playing very well. On to this game. Moves played on the board are in brackets <like this> <1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nc6> The ...
   Aug-01-22 Shirov vs S Sulskis, 2014
Goldrider: 9. a3 is considered weak by Stockfish. So, if playing Stockfish, play something else. That said, 9. a3 is effective at the club level, and, as seen in this game, even effective against grandmasters.
   Apr-17-22 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999 (replies)
Goldrider: I have made an article about this game on the Wikipedia:
   Jan-22-21 Tarrasch vs C Kelz, 1890
Goldrider: 21...♔xf7? 22. ♕f6+ ♔e8 23. ♖d8#
   Jan-21-21 Steinitz vs R Gray, 1872
Goldrider: The only move played by Steinitz in this miniature which Stockfish feels is inaccurate is 12. ♗c5!?. Stockfish feels this is weaker than 12. ♖ae1 ; after 12. ♗c5!? ♕d7! 13. ♖ad1 ♘ge7 the game is unclear. All of the other moves by Steinitz are ...
   Jan-06-21 Fischer vs Peil, 1964
Goldrider: This is the only game where black plays 10. ... Ne7, but there are a few other games where black inaccurately defends with 9. ...Nxe4. After 10. Re1, black’s best move is probably d6, which is followed by white playing 11. Qa4+ or 11. Nxe5. After 11. Rxe4 in the game played ...
   Oct-26-18 Blackburne vs A Steinkuehler, 1862 (replies)
Goldrider: Black’s first mistake here is 18 ... gxf6? ; the game was even or slightly favorable to Black until this mistake. My previous analysis was in error; Qxd3, Qe3, and Qh4 all avoid mate. Qxd3 is, however, Black’s best continuation, but even here Black is hopelessly lost: 21... ...
   Oct-26-18 Fischer vs Fine, 1963 (replies)
Goldrider: First of all, there has been much discussion about whether 17. Qb2 or other moves (besides the 17. Qg3 that was played) are good. According to Stockfish, 17. Qg3! is the best move, forcing mate in eight moves (e.g. 17. Qg3 Qe7 18. Rxe7 d6 19. Rxf7 Ke8 20. Qf3 Bc3 21. Re1+ Bxe1 22.
