   Feb-10-06 Gelfand vs Ivanchuk, 2006 (replies)
HardBoys: That leaves White with the following continuation after 43...Neg5!: 44 Rb8+ Nf8 45 gxf4 Ne6 46 Bc4! Nxd4! (46...Nxf4+ 47 Kf3 g5 48 h4! is not impressive for Black) 47 Bd3! (White sets a final cute trap: If now 47... Ra1 48 f5 Rxa2 49 e6! fxe6 50 dxe6 Nxe6 (Or ...
   Feb-01-06 M Kappe vs Kasparov, 1977 (replies)
HardBoys: Rooks are tough.
   Feb-01-06 Kasparov vs Vasalomidze, 1976 (replies)
HardBoys: As I said, it's a sophisticated type of sac. You're looking wrongly for an immediate tactical punishment of 27...Rxb6, Rochade. In fact, the answer is rather mundane. Since the f8-rook is currently jammed by Black's queen from quickly crossing over to b8 and ...
   Feb-01-06 Sakarov vs Kasparov, 1976 (replies)
HardBoys: Garry frequently played this setup (QN on d7, rather than c6) in his youth, but rarely in maturity. It's blown out by an appropriately timed g4!, pinching the Black knights, which is why I gave it up myself.
   Feb-01-06 Kasparov vs C McNab, 1977 (replies)
HardBoys: Fighting spirit. An important quality in a champion. The early games can be raw. Many of these are. But what are we seeing again and again in them?
   Jan-14-06 Dlugy vs V Zaltsman, 1983 (replies)
HardBoys: The first professional whipping?
   Jan-14-06 Alburt vs Dlugy, 1983 (replies)
HardBoys: Max begins to develop his refreshingly direct style based on tactical sequences...
   Jan-14-06 Keene vs Dlugy, 1982 (replies)
HardBoys: I don't know about 16 Ne5. 16 Ne4 is one move. For some reason tho, the Tal-like 16 d5! keeps springing to mind. You must have looked at this briefly, Ray, and of course, 16...b4! is the next answer. But did you look at just playing 17 Ne2! then? Something ...
   Jan-14-06 Dlugy vs E Schiller, 1980 (replies)
HardBoys: Professional technique by Black until move 20, when just 20...Nxf4 is a good deal simpler than what Schiller did.
   Jan-14-06 Dzindzichashvili vs Dlugy, 1984
HardBoys: First rate technique by Dlugy.
