guybrush: Isn't 8..c5 the usual way to go, instead of 8..Rc8. Or, is this the Short variation? The lack of a c5 push renders Black's dark square bishop completely hopeless. Or, more likely, I'm missing the whole point.

guybrush: 12 f4 is an awesome move. Hopefully, I get to play it sometime. Is there any defense? I don't see any. The position at 12 white to play could be a Thursday puzzle, I guess.
   Jul-29-10 A Young vs Kamsky, 2010 (replies)
guybrush: This is perhaps one of the rare occasions where the move may be easier to spot OTB than as a puzzle move. Like many others I spent a long time trying to get Rxf1+ to work, before figuring out that f3 would let me remove the guard just as easy.
   Jul-27-10 Ponomariov vs Le Quang Liem, 2010 (replies)
guybrush: A very picturesque position after 36 Re2. I see from the comments above that it's equal. Black's position looks better to me, but I guess he can't find a way to get at White's queen side pawns, while protecting his 7th rank?
   Jun-16-10 J Bednarski vs M Podgaets, 1972 (replies)
guybrush: A couple of suggestions of 36...Qb6?! Doesn't 37 Qxb3 let white hang around for a bit? 37...Ng3 is no longer an option, due to 38 Qxg3 with material equality. Perhaps I'm missing something obvious. In any case, white's overall position is still horrible, as was the rest of his play
   Jun-07-10 Spassky vs Taimanov, 1956 (replies)
guybrush: 44..? Black to play is a good puzzle position. 44..Bc3! 45 Rc2 Rxd1, and now if 46 Rxc3, black has 46..Qa2+, leading to Kh3 and Rh1#. 44 Rd2 looks like a blunder, but white's position already looks very cramped.
   Mar-02-09 Anand vs Dominguez Perez, 2009 (replies)
guybrush: 23..Nf2+ is answered by 24 Kg2, right? To avoid the disastrous discovered check. After Kg2, 24...Qe6 25 Qxe6 fxe6 26 Rxd4, and black loses the knight.
   Aug-06-08 Botvinnik vs P Sharov, 1929 (replies)
guybrush: 28. Ne8. What a move! Didn't see that one.
   Jul-23-08 Onischuk vs Romanishin, 2003 (replies)
guybrush: <What is the idea behind 28. Qg5 ?> I think to keep the king trapped on the back rank, i.e., preventing Ke7...Kd8 and moving to safety.
   May-12-08 Bu Xiangzhi vs Aronian, 2008 (replies)
guybrush: Sorry I meant white's pawns
