jdc2: Daniel King has a video on this game at his Power Play Chess channel on youtube.
   Apr-26-20 Lasker vs Steinitz, 1894 (replies)
jdc2: Kasparov gives Lasker's 14.g4 a ?!, says "Pawns don't move backwards" and recommends 14.f3 or 14.g3. Interesting that the latest Stockfish dev finds the move 14.h4 clearly best, at least out to depth 32: 14.h4 Bxh4 15.g3 Bf6 16.f4 Re8 17.Bf3 h6 18.Kb1 Bxd5 19.Qxd5 Qd7 (19...Qe7 20.Qh5

jdc2: Little known game but the positional queen sac by Black is instructive.
   Jul-09-19 NN vs Keres, 1940 (replies)
jdc2: I can't understand why this game shows up three times in my db..."NN - Keres" 1940, "Ansbach - Keres" Simferopol 1967 and "Anspach, F. - Keres" London 1967.
   Dec-21-18 Keres vs Levenfish, 1947 (replies)
jdc2: The position after 29...Bh3 is problem #670 in Reinfeld's "1001 Winning Chess Sacrifices and Combinations."
   Nov-26-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
jdc2: Does this variation of the Sveshnikov have a name?
   Nov-18-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
jdc2: I had cutechess play a 10 game gauntlet between 6 different Stockfish versions from white's 33.Ke2, 10sec + 0.1 sec. Black won all 10 games. The most common continuation was 33...Qg5 34. Qf2 h5 35. Nh2 Qg7 36. Nf3 Qb2 37. Qe1 Qxc2+ 38. Qd2 Qxd2+ 39. Nxd2 Rg2+ 40. Rf2 Rg3 41. Nf3 b5 ...
   Aug-09-18 Carlsen vs N Georgiadis, 2018 (replies)
jdc2: Tough game for Nico. Of the 18 possible moves after 46. a4, 9 of them lead to a draw: Kf8, Kh7, Kg8, Kg6, Bb8, Be5, Bc7, bxc3, Kh8.
   Dec-26-17 Damljanovic vs Geller, 1987 (replies)
jdc2: What The Patzer Saw: 35...Re8, threatening Nh3 mate, so 36. Be4 RxB+, not realizing the black king can take the pawn on f3 after the knight moves....
   Dec-05-17 J Mason vs Blackburne, 1901 (replies)
jdc2: The position after 25. a5 is problem #608 in Reinfeld's "1001 Winning Chess Sacrifices and Combinations".
