   Jul-03-13 Rybka vs Houdini, 2011 (replies)
cjrubiks: I stated Houdini sacrificed "only" two pawns because the compensation for those first two pawns was by no means obvious, whereas the compensation from the third pawn sac was by then quite clear. Either way, it is an absolutely amazing game, and if JustAnotherMaster is overstating ...
   Apr-29-13 M Heinsohn vs B Blitsko, 2012 (replies)
cjrubiks: He probably calls the tournament referee over, and asks "How the heck can white advance the pawn to e7 when he doesn't have it already on e6?"
   Apr-12-13 Adams vs Kasparov, 2005 (replies)
cjrubiks: I think 27 Qxc2 is met by 27 ... Rfc8, and now 28. Qxc8 Rxc2+, or 28. Qd2 Qxa4 threatens Rxb2, which cannot satisfactorily be stopped, as 29. Bc1 runs into 29. Rxc1.
   Mar-31-13 Radjabov vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
cjrubiks: An epic meltdown if there ever was one, especially given what was at stake, as well as the strength of the players. Shocking.
   Oct-16-12 Nakamura vs S Williams, 2012 (replies)
cjrubiks: I think that the position just before White's 36th would make a terrific Thursday or Friday puzzle.
   Oct-16-12 D Andreikin vs Nakamura, 2012
cjrubiks: Perhaps this was a Swiss Gambit?
   Apr-16-12 Kasparov vs Gelfand, 1991 (replies)
cjrubiks: It's reasonable because Gelfand is in check and will lose the queen.
   Mar-29-12 Douglas Root (replies)
cjrubiks: He was actually one of the "West Covina Whiz Kids" in the early to mid 70s, along with Perry Youngworth, and I think, one other, whose name escapes me. The West Covina club was one of the strongest in SoCal at the time, and regularly hosted some very competitive tournaments.
   Mar-26-12 Lasker vs St. E M Sala, 1901 (replies)
cjrubiks: <LTJ: I hope that everyone is cool if I claim the full point> I have to honest here, LTJ -- we really don't care either way.
   Mar-21-10 Z Izoria vs F Volkmann, 2003 (replies)
cjrubiks: <dzechiel>What makes life harder in your line is that after 21.g3, Black can save the bishop via Qf5+ and Qd7. Other than that, your line is beautiful. The key idea of getting the queen to c6 is clearly winning, and much faster, however.
