   Aug-12-09 F Bellini vs V Gashimov, 2002 (replies)
The Brain99: Kramnik lost a game to Deep Fritz in which he also missed this mate in 1: Deep Fritz vs Kramnik, 2006
   Aug-12-09 Portisch vs Karpov, 1978 (replies)
The Brain99: <acerbiter: 23. h3? 24. Rd1? 25. Kh2? 33. Ba2? 34. Qe1 35. f3? anyone can explain these series of moves (the seconds of which lost the game quickly)?> <23. h3> - I'm not quite sure. Probably to protect against back-rank mate threats? <24. Rd1> - Beginning of a
   Aug-10-09 Fischer vs Taimanov, 1971 (replies)
The Brain99: < Ulhumbrus: ...An alternative to 10...d6 is 10...Bxd4 11 Bxc7 Bxc3 12 bxc3 d5 which may end in a draw.> From Chess Fundamentals by J.R. Capablanca (This game in particular annotated by reviser GM N. De Firmian): Taimanov now correctly avoids the queen trade as that would ...
   Aug-02-09 P Johner vs Nimzowitsch, 1926 (replies)
The Brain99: Could someone explain the purpose of 20...Bd7 as well as the following 21...Rac8? The Rook just moves right over to the g-file in a few moves and the bishop does not seem to be any more active on d7 than it was on c8.
   Jul-16-09 Capablanca vs Janowski, 1913 (replies)
The Brain99: <paladin at large: Janowski makes a typically bold offer of the exchange with 13.....Nc5, which Capablanca does not accept until 17. Bxf8. Janowski then gets a menacing pawn center supported by his beloved bishop pair. Capablanca typically gives back the exchange and wins a ...
   Jun-18-09 Rubinstein vs Capablanca, 1911 (replies)
The Brain99: What's so amazing about 17. Qc1? Why doesn't Black simply move his bishop, by, say 18.Bb4?
   Jun-17-09 Tal vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
The Brain99: Why didn't Tal simply play 50. d8-Q+? Seems like it would be an easy win. Then again, I must be overlooking something.
   Jun-13-09 Karpov vs Ljubojevic, 1986 (replies)
The Brain99: Why did Karpov play 11. Kf2 instead of 11. Bd2?
   Jun-07-09 F Zita vs Bronstein, 1946 (replies)
The Brain99: Ray Keene says this is a prime example of weak color square complexes (in this case, the dark squares). That's also how he explains the rook sacrifice on white's dark square bishop, saying that Bronstein played it to weaken White's dark squares because he had his dark squared ...
   Jun-02-09 Carlsen vs Dominguez Perez, 2007 (replies)
The Brain99: Could someone please explain to me why Black doesn't play 27...Rxd7? I understand it sets up a fork when white plays 28. Nb6 but Black can just play 28...Rd8 so if White responds 29. Nxa8 then Black can play 29...Rxa8 and he will have gained a knight and a bishop (6) for a rook ...
