   May-30-10 M Brooks vs Shulman, 2001
The Bycote: Brooks' combination only leads to a draw, but it is still very pretty! Besides, who wouldn't take a forced draw against GM Shulman?
   May-30-10 E Tate vs M Brooks, 1989 (replies)
The Bycote: Black has an obvious win. For example, 54.Nxa5 h2+ 55.Kh1 f2 56.Kg2 h1=Q+ 57.Kxh1 f1=Q# This is a truly beautiful game by Brooks. He plays the opening and middle game aggressively and brilliantly and his technique in the end game is superb. I find it very educational that Brooks ...

The Bycote: Eduardo Leon, 21.Rxh7 e5 22.Qf4 f5 23.gxf6ep is no doubt a creative idea as your analysis shows, but I think my analysis will show that it doesn't work. 23...bxc3 (threatening Qa1#) 24.Bxc3 (24.f7+ Kxh7 and white can't promote because of 25...Qa1#) 24...Qa1+ 25.Kd2 Qxg1 26.f7+ ...

The Bycote: dabearsrock1010 gives two illegal moves for black (Kd7 and Kd6) in his analysis of 34.f8=Q+! which is actually a beautiful and correct finish to the game.
   May-28-09 Lilienthal vs G A Thomas, 1934 (replies)
The Bycote: A beautiful finish! Unless I am mistaken, the game would conclude like this: 37...Kg8 38.hxg6! Qxh2 39.gxf7+ Kxf7 40.Rg7+ Kf8 41.Qe7# 37...Kf8 38.hxg6! Qxh2 39.g7+ Kg8 40.gxh8=Q# 37...f6 38.Qe7+ Kg8 39.Rxg6+ Qxg6 40.hxg6 Rxh2 41.Qf7+ Kh8 42.g7+ etc I've just discovered ...
   Nov-14-08 S Kagan vs Yanofsky, 1968
The Bycote: 29.e5?? is a mystery to me. White has a very nice advantage on the board before his 29th move on account of black's damaged queenside pawn structure and all other things being equal. Those who study the Exchange Ruy Lopez will learn that white can almost always turn such a ...
   Nov-14-08 J Arnason vs Dreev, 1990 (replies)
The Bycote: Wow. This may be the most clever double-bishop sac I've ever seen! 24.f4!! is not an easy move to see ahead of time, especially since the "canned" way to crown these attacks is with a rook lift. Brilliant, creative play by Arnason!
   Nov-13-08 K N Engedal vs E Naess, 1994 (replies)
The Bycote: It always worries me when I see someone play a move such as 29.Rxa5+?? Every move you ever make in a winning position should be designed to INCREASE your advantage, don't sell your soul for simplifications!
   Nov-12-08 J M Ovadia vs Lasker, 1924 (replies)
The Bycote: Oh, I like this game! After a classic opening, Lasker steals the initiative with 15...h5! highlighting his opponent's weakened pawns. Lasker's initiative becomes so menacing to poor Ovadia that he throws caution into the wind with his f2-f4-f5 thrust, giving up a pawn and ...
   Nov-10-08 D Przepiorka vs Rubinstein, 1907
The Bycote: I can't help but love the move 27...Bb4 - by a measure of raw force and power, this move is off the charts! White is faced with indirect attacks against his queen *and* rook *in addition to* the attack already against his bishop!
