I am a Dane, born '48. When it comes to tournament chess, I am very much a used-to-be (as in: used to be ELO 2100+, used to be an IA..) - but I still enjoy other people's games. A site like CG is ideal in this respect.

   Feb-06-22 Larsen vs Tal, 1965
erixn: Just to put the record straight: Larsen himself (Skakbladet, 1965/9) states that the last move played was indeed 41. R1c6, and that Tal sealed 41.-,Rhc8, but resigned without resuming the game, since 42.Bxd6 leads to an easily won N-endgame.
   May-15-21 Chernin vs P Bono, 2005 (replies)
erixn: I believe Bono's Rxb3 was nothing but one last attempt to rattle the opponent and that he realized after a minute's thought that 35.Qxb3 Ng4 36.Rxg7+ Kxg7 37.Qb2+ Kh7 38.Ra1 is an easy win for W, since now there is no longer a mate by Qxf2. But what puzzles me is White leaving the ...
   Jul-05-20 N Hald vs L Uedemann, 1902 (replies)
erixn: And here's a different pattern for mate in 3: 43. Rd2 Ke3 44.Bf4+ Kf3 45.Rf2#. Really no need for the Q-side pawns.
   Mar-18-20 Kholmov vs Polugaevsky, 1980 (replies)
erixn: In the final position, on (28.Nd4) Rxd6 29. Nb5 wins easily enough, but 28.-,Ra6 offers White the chance to blow it: 29.Rxc5? Rxc5 30.Qxc5 Qxc5 31.Rxc5 Rxd6 and the N is lost due to W's weak back rank. Instead, 29.Nb5 once more does the trick.
   Mar-05-20 P Buj vs E Thiele, 1983 (replies)
erixn: @AnEnglishman: Well, to me the position after 67.Kxf4 DOES look like a stalemate (though I did have to remind myself that the black pawns move DOWN the board!), @alwazir: I agree, that the last possible draw by repetition was with W playing 74.Nd3 - at least in the "old" FIDE rules; I
   Feb-16-20 J Sunyer vs R Domenech, 1934
erixn: Looks like 4.-,is a notational error... why doesn't White simply take the e5 pawn? Instead, 4.-,f6 looks perfectly reasonable!
   Jun-04-19 Delarochette vs J Negro, 1983 (replies)
erixn: That 5.Nd5 looks a lot like a clerical mishap (not uncommon in pre-computer days). - My guess is White "thought" Black had played 1.-c5, when 2.d3 d5 3.Nc3 dxe4 4.dxe4 Qc7 5.Nd5 makes sense. - On the other hand, I don't quite understand why Black didn't resign immediately when he ...
   Apr-03-19 B Steinthorsson vs S Danielsson, 2018 (replies)
erixn: How can this be 1-0 ? Black is a piece + 2P up, 36.Bxg2 Kxd7 simplifies to a winning position, and 36. K any is mate in 2.
   Mar-06-19 A Moiseenko vs Yusupov, 2010 (replies)
erixn: On 24..Be3 25.Rxc8+ Kg7 it seems to me White may try 26.Nd2!?, when 26...Rxd2 allows 27.Rg8+ Kxg8 28.Qa8+ Kg7 29.fxe3! when Pg2 is protected or (27.Rg8+) Kh6 30.Qxf7 protecting Pf2. And similarly if QxN. - I don't see any immediate mates, although Black's attack may still be ...
   Feb-17-19 Yasas Lamawansa vs Z Foo, 2016 (replies)
erixn: @An Englishman: I believe that on 32.fxe5 the best response is 32.-f4+ discovering check as well as threatening Qxg3mate.
