   Oct-05-11 Giri vs V Churkin, 2008
dzhafner: Is there a reason black didn't want to just play 6 ...d6 with some order of Nf6 Be7 Nbd7 aiming for a hedgehog?
   Sep-22-11 R Toran Albero vs Tal, 1961
dzhafner: In his book, "life and games", Tal suggests 11 NCxe4 for white and says he would have continued with 11...Nc6 Something like 12 Nxf6 ... Bxf6 13 Be5+ ... Kg7 and then Tal suggests 14 Nf7. But what if white tries 14 Be6? ...Re8 (to avoid the knight fork) 15. d5 and now ...

   Oct-09-10 Samsonov vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1929 (replies)
dzhafner: One cute line is as follows: 11 Bxg7 ... Qh4+ 12 Ke2 ... 0-0 13 Rb1 (suddenly losing Qxa2 is essential to protect the f7 square) ... Qf7+ 14 Kd1 (Ke3? Nc5#) ...Qxg7 15 Rxb8 (Re1 ...Qf3+ Re2 ...Qf1+ Re1 ...Nf2#) ...Qxh8+ 16 Ke2 ...Qg7+ 17 Kd3 Qf3+ Kd4 Qf2+ Kd3 ...Nc5#
   Oct-04-10 Spassky vs Beickert, 1991 (replies)
dzhafner: nice finish, black had no idea it was coming. Might make a nice puzzle.
   Aug-31-10 Anderssen vs Staunton, 1851 (replies)
dzhafner: why not 8... d6? if 9 Qg4 ... 0-0 and if 10 Bh6?? ... Ng6 (the hanging bishop, knight, and threat of e5 seem difficult to meet) 11 Bg5 ... Qb6 (11 Be3 .. e5) Black should be able to get in 9 ...Nf6 and possibly continue with ...e5, ...Nd4 à la Adams vs Hydra, 2005 as ...

   Jun-02-10 Alekhine vs Bogoljubov, 1929 (replies)
dzhafner: Bogoljubov could have drawn with 64 ... Rxf5 If Alekhine had then exchanged rooks on f5, the game would have been drawn, since black's pawn it a bishop pawn. eg. 65 Rxf5 ... Kxf5 66 b5 ... Kg4 67 Kc6 ... and black just needs to race his pawn to f2 and move his king back and ...
