   Oct-23-04 T M Mok vs Korchnoi, 2004 (replies)
The Analyst: <sergeidave> a7 is defended by the knight on c8, so b3? just loses to Bxb3.
   Oct-19-04 Estrin vs H Berliner, 1965 (replies)
The Analyst: <solstys> After 43 Rc4, Kb3 44 Rc7 Ra2+ 45 Kf3 (45 Kf1 makes no difference) 45...Kb2, the pawn is promoting. If White's king tries to come over, then the h-pawn advances.
   Oct-16-04 Spassky vs Petrosian, 1969 (replies)
The Analyst: 11...b5 is probably a better way to prepare Q-side castling, but it looks risky due to 12 Bd5!?
   Oct-16-04 Leko vs Kramnik, 2004 (replies)
The Analyst: 56 g6 seems like an easier way to draw: 56...Rxg2 57 Kxg2 c2 58 b7 c1=Q 59 b8=Q= 56...Rxb6 57 g7 Rb8 58 g8=Q Rxg8 59 Rxg8 c2 60 Rc8=
   Oct-16-04 Alekhine vs Bogoljubov, 1934 (replies)
The Analyst: Amusingly, Alekhine could have inserted 30 Bc4+ Kg6 31 Bf7+ Kxf7 and then still won with 32 Qh5+: 32...g6 33 Qxh7+ Kf6 34 Nd7+ Kg5 35 h4+ Kf4 36 Qh6+ g5 37 Rf1+ Ke3 38 Rc2 Rxa5 39 Qe6+ Be4 40 Rf3+ Qxf3 41 gxf3 Kxf3 42 Rc1.
   Oct-13-04 Morphy vs E Morphy, 1849 (replies)
The Analyst: 19 Kh1 Bxe1. White is just down an bishop and a rook for less than nothing.
   Oct-11-04 Radjabov vs Kasparov, 2004 (replies)
The Analyst: There's a section in Edward Winter's book "Kings, Commoners and Knaves", containing analysis on 5 Nxc6 ... from the mid-1800s!
   Oct-09-04 Gligoric vs Euwe, 1953 (replies)
The Analyst: In his games collection "I Play Against Pieces", Gligoric gives an interesting point about this game: " It was also possible to play 17...Rfd8." (preventing the tactic on White's 21st move) The only drawback I can see with that is the weakening of the f7-square - which is ...
   Oct-08-04 Alekhine vs O Tenner, 1911 (replies)
The Analyst: <Cerebrate2006> Here's a Legals' mate in which a bishop delivers the mate: 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nf6 3 Nxe5 Nc6 4 Nxc6 dxc6 5 d3 Bc5 6 Bg5 Nxe4 7 Bxd8 Bxf2+ 8 Ke2 Bg4 mate.
   Oct-07-04 J Mora Corbera vs Suttles, 1964 (replies)
The Analyst: The book "Draw" by W.Heidenfeld has annotations to this game. Some interesting points made by Heidenfeld: 10 f3 can be met by 10...e5!, when 11 fxg4 11...Bd2+ 12 Kf2 Qf6+ 13 Kg3 Qf4+ 14 Nxf4 exf4+ 15 Kf2 Be3+ 16 Kf1 Rh1 is mate. " For a master game like that one would presumably
