   Aug-21-11 Van der Wiel vs Kasparov, 1976 (replies)
mannetje: I can't help quoting Feynman (from 'Physics Today', David Goodstein): <You know, the most amazing thing happened to me tonight. I was coming here, on the way to the lecture, and I came through the parking lot. And you won't believe what happened. I saw a car with the license ...
   Sep-05-09 Suetin vs S Gorelov, 1981
mannetje: euh... isn't <77.Kg6> (or even <77.Ke5>) winning?? And couldn't black just play <75...Ke7>, instead of <75...Kg7??>?
   Jul-01-09 Timman vs Karpov, 1979 (replies)
mannetje: Karpov: <<"In this game probably the most important novelty of the tournament occurred. It had been prepared for Korchnoi, but somehow he deftly avoided this preparation. And then completely unexpectedly the variation 'fired' at Timman.">> Here is a smal part of the ...
   May-10-09 R Benares vs Christoffer Persson, 1995
mannetje: You're right. 11.Re1 would give white a clear edge.
   May-06-09 Filip vs Euwe, 1955 (replies)
mannetje: This game was annotated by Euwe in his book "Handboek voor de gevorderde schaker III" (manual for the advanced chess player, part 3). This is an example of how to use a central space advantage. He thinks 8...Be7 is a mistake, he should have played 8...Bd6 or 8...e5. He also ...
   May-05-09 Nimzowitsch vs Tartakower, 1929 (replies)
mannetje: The e4 square is often a weakness in the KID. That's why the Saemisch Variation is so popular. However, the pawn on f3 makes it difficult for white to develop his kingside. That's how black creates counterplay. In the game Tartakower made the mistake of playing ...Nbd7 too soon. ...
   Apr-09-09 I Liflend vs Shredder, 2000 (replies)
mannetje: Shouldn't this be 0-1? White is completely lost after 36...Qg3 followed by 37...Rxh3+.
   Feb-24-09 Hort vs R Niermann, 1987
mannetje: 16.Kg3 looks bizar and probably it's just bad. Black would have done better with 16...Tae8!. Now 17.Qd4 loses brilliantly to 17...Qxf3+!!. This means white will have to go for something like 17.h4, creating some air for the king. But black has the initiative.
   Nov-23-08 Illescas Cordoba vs Short, 1995 (replies)
mannetje: very nice game
   Oct-31-08 Reti vs Rubinstein, 1923 (replies)
mannetje: A wonderfull clean game, in the Reti opening by Reti himself. Kasparov annotated this game, he thinks Reti didn't make a single mistake. That was allmost unique back in '23.
