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!

   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.
   Mar-25-20 Fedorowicz vs Dlugy, 1987
WhoKeres: A cute finish based on the overloading of black's queen, due to Dlugy's blunder on move 28.
   Jan-14-20 J van Foreest vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
WhoKeres: Nice to see Carlsen try the Two Knights Defense instead of heading for the boring Guioco Piano, which is currently fashionable at the highest levels. The try 8. Bd3 is weaker than the old main line with 8. Be2 or Bogolubow's specialty 8. Qf3.
   Aug-17-19 Karjakin vs Mamedyarov, 2019 (replies)
WhoKeres: Karjakin should be ashamed! After white's 9th move he had a clear advantage: 2 bishops, ahead in development, and more space. 10. d5 just leads to a bunch of exchanges. Qd2 looks better to me. In any event, I can't imagine Shak holding this position against Tal, Fischer, or ...
