   Mar-05-04 F Vallejo Pons vs Kasparov, 2004 (replies)
dukesterdog: <uponthehill> Doesn't 45. ...Qxb4 46. Nxb4 Rxf3+ lose a piece to 47. Kg2
   Feb-24-04 Fischer vs R Burger, 1964 (replies)
dukesterdog: Why did Fischer resign so quickly in this one? Was he just frustrated at losing his queen? Or did he not see the following line (which doesn't seem too bad)? 15. Bxf4 Qh5+ 16. Kg1 Bxe4 17. Nc3 Bb7 18. Bc4 ...
   Jan-28-04 Bernhold vs Kreut-Zahler, 1941 (replies)
dukesterdog: That should be 12...Kxf6 13. Qh4+
   Dec-16-03 Anderssen vs E Schallopp, 1864 (replies)
dukesterdog: I agree that moving the queen so early is a violation of "opening principles"; but in this case, I don't think it is such a big mistake. Sure, it allows white to gain some tempo, but Black gets two pawns in exchange. Black could then trade back some material to regain some ...
   Oct-17-03 Alison vs Fink, 1979 (replies)
dukesterdog: 8...Qxd6 is a departure from the theory. Usually 8...Bxd6 is played. Fink didn't go for the tempting 3-way fork with 9...Ne3 which yields a passed pawn for black, but opens up lines for whites queen and rook. A possible continuation would be 10. Bxe3 fxe3 11. Ne5 Nxe5 12. dxe5 ...
   Aug-21-03 M Wind vs T Winckelmann, 1993 (replies)
dukesterdog: Of the two possible lines I see one looks good for White, and the other looks about even : a) 11...b6 12. d4 exd4 13. Qxd4 Ne7 14. Qxc5 Bd7+ 15. Kb4 bxc5+ 16. Kxc5 and White is up a minor piece although his King is still exposed b) 11...Ne7 [Now if 12. Kxc5, then Black plays a5 ...
   Aug-21-03 Hamppe vs Meitner, 1872 (replies)
dukesterdog: I was considering the line 12. Kc3 d4+ 13. Kc4 b6! 14. Qf3! Be6+ 15. Qd5 (White offers back the queen to remove Black's white bishop, and to provide his King an escape)Bxd5 16. Kxd5 Nf6+ 16. Kxe5 Ng4+ 17. Kf4 ... Now whites King is free, and it looks like he has about even ...
   Aug-20-03 T Escher vs R Ungnad, 1972
dukesterdog: White tries to avoid the immortal draw with 7. Nc5, and ends up losing. Even better for black would have been 8. ...Qf2!
