   Aug-12-19 T Sachdev vs E Moradiabadi, 2008
deadlyduck: Was this a loss on time by White? Surely Qxf7+ is a perpetual.
   Oct-11-14 A S Hagen vs K Szabo, 2012 (replies)
deadlyduck: Totally missed this. I was looking at ideas such as ..Nxg2; Nxf7 Qd7; Ng5 Nf4; Re1 Bh6; Ne6 Nxe6; de Qxe6; Qd8+ Kh7; Qxc7+ Bd7; Bf1 and somehow pushing the h pawn/ exploiting the now activated a8 Rook etc etc but I'm pretty sure the glasses are rose tinted today :)
   Jan-17-13 M Packalen vs L Schandorff, 1998 (replies)
deadlyduck: @ LTJ: Something like ..R8f2 (threatening Bg2++) seems good. Since d7 allows Bg2++ it appears that White must try one of the following: (a) Qxf2 when ..Rxf2 leaves Black with a huge material advantage. (b) Rxf1; Rxf1+ Qg1 Rxg1+ and again a huge material adbvantage to Black (c) ...
   Dec-23-12 S P Tanin vs G Sanakoev, 1960 (replies)
deadlyduck: I was looking at 20..Ng4 with the following variations (but have probably missed the 'oh-so-obvious-refutation'.... 21. fxg8=Q Rxg8; 22. Bd6 [if Qd6 Re8+; Be2 Qxd6; Bxd6 Ne3 and Black seems to have good compensation] 23. Be2 [if Kd1?? Nf2+ and mate next move] ..bxa6; 24. ...
   Oct-07-12 J Gallagher vs Baburin, 2001
deadlyduck: Very nice 25th move by Black! If White had replied 26.Nxc5 then Black wins with 26..Bxa2+ 27. Kc1 b3! when 28. Nxb3 Bxb3 exploits the Queen pin - not only regaining the piece but very favourably opening up the White position which will be subject to a raging attack by the rooks.
   Jun-08-12 Taimanov vs A Shashin, 1978 (replies)
deadlyduck: I eventually found the double bishop sacrifice (reminds me of a Kasparov game from the 80's) but I spent a lot of time playing around with 22. Qh5 (initially thinking there was a devious Queen sac after ..g6; 23.Qxh7+ Kxh7;24. h5 but I couldn't see compensation after Black plays ...
   Feb-29-12 Aagaard vs P A Rasmussen, 1996 (replies)
deadlyduck: Didn't get it at all and am kicking myself when the solution is presented :-( I was looking at trying to infiltrate the Black Q-side with moves like 27. Qe3 (as either 27..Qxg3; 28.Qxa7 or 27.. b6; 28. Qf3 Kb8;29. Qc6 both look disastrous for Black) but I couldn't find a totally ...
   Feb-24-12 S Slipak vs F Braga, 1998 (replies)
deadlyduck: I went for the 29.Rxf6 gf;30. g4 Qh3; 31. Qd4 line.
   Jan-09-12 Beliavsky vs Kasparov, 1988 (replies)
deadlyduck: Another neat point is that if Beliavsky had tried 23. Re1 Kasparov would still have time for 23..Qc6, when White can't play 24. Qxh6 because of the very attractive 24.. Rd1+! 25. Rxd1 (else the queen must be given up) ..Qe4+ and either mate on c2 by the Queen or a smothered mate ...
   Apr-19-08 Karpov vs Topalov, 2002 (replies)
deadlyduck: What would the sequence be for Karpov if Topalov had played 17.. Bxa1? I can vaguely see the idea of 18. gf, intending Rg1 then Rg4 then Rf4 etc but surely there must be a defence for Topalov?
