I have been playing for over 25 years. I was an OTB USCF expert and still an A player. I am a CM in correspondence chess. Keres is my favorite player, but my playing style is more like Botvinnik or Nimzovich, though I have far less ability than they did!

   Apr-14-22 Vaganian vs Bronstein, 1978
WhoKeres: Very nice technique from Vaganian after an uncharacteristically passive opening from Bronstein.
   Nov-13-21 Keres vs Smejkal, 1971
WhoKeres: You don't see rook drops like this very often! Smejkal must have been in time pressure, but it's still shocking...36...Rxb2??
   Oct-23-21 Blackburne vs Steinitz, 1876 (replies)
WhoKeres: It was in the mid-1870's that Steinitz changed his style to include a more positional foundation to his games. You'd never know that by playing over this tactical melee. I think Steinitz's predominant trait with black was his desire to adopt plans where he was up material; his ...
   Aug-14-21 M Ujtelky vs J Dolezal, 1955
WhoKeres: A nicely calculated finish!
   Apr-02-21 U Tarve vs Keres, 1969 (replies)
WhoKeres: Keres' tactical eye was still sharp, picking up white's wayward knight with 24...ra6. White could have tried 23. b5 to maintain equality. The hallmark of Keres' play is his piece activity and coordination.
   Feb-17-21 Keres vs V Shiyanovsky, 1961
WhoKeres: Crystal clear middle game strategy by Keres. His Q side initiative is way too fast for black to counter. Not the typical king hunt you'd expect from the great attacker!
   Nov-29-20 Stahlberg vs Alekhine, 1935 (replies)
WhoKeres: This game is a great example of Alekhine's fighting spirit. He equalized easily then made Stahlberg work hard for a draw. In my opinion, Alekhine, Lasker, Fischer, and Korchnoi are the greatest chess fighters. They hated draws and didn't back down from a fight with anyone.
   Oct-31-20 Sax vs Tal, 1983
WhoKeres: Tremendous battle of the minor pieces on the queenside. Only GM's could find their way safely out of these complications. A beautiful game!
   Aug-23-20 Chekhover vs Alatortsev, 1945 (replies)
WhoKeres: White's 46th move is a brilliant defense to save a draw. Black had a big advantage but sloppy technique cost him half a point.
   Aug-10-20 J Kellner vs H De Carbonnel, 1968 (replies)
WhoKeres: Great battle of pawn storms! The endgame tactics are impressive from both players.
