mcgee: Isn't 20..Nxb4 winning?
   May-15-18 Eileen Tranmer (replies)
mcgee: Does anyone have her win over Bykova in 1953 women's WC candidates tournament (just before Bykova became women's WC)? I've been looking in vain for it. This would be really appreciated. Thanks.

mcgee: Regarding the query above, Stockfish found the beautiful 21...Rec8 22 Nf5!! If 22..Bf8 23 Nexg7!! Bxg7 24 Rxg6!! I say this but Korchnoi may well have included this line or something similar in My Best Games With White (I'll check when I get a chance) The whole point is that Black has
   Oct-07-17 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1978 (replies)
mcgee: Yes, 15 Bf1 looks like a killer. This game is in Korchnoi's My Best Games With White: I'll have a look and see what (if anything) he wrote about that. Still a great effort by Korchnoi to win this one though.
   Jul-24-17 Quinteros vs Ribli, 1974 (replies)
mcgee: Looking at this on the computer, 18...a5 might actually be stronger than 18...dxe3. If 19 e4, then 19..axb4 followed by 20...bxa3. If 20 b5, then 20..Qe7 and White can resign. 18..dxe3 is a great move to play, but White's position is so riddled with weak spots it doesn't look like the
   Mar-30-17 Spassky vs A Haik, 1983
mcgee: This may well have been part of a special chess event at various Paris Metro stations around the time. Spassky played a small match with Haik and I remember a pic of Tal playing with a giant set as part of the same event.
   Feb-23-17 E Walther vs Fischer, 1959 (replies)
mcgee: >>DAL9000: Wait, so how does 31. Rg3 not win for White? What I'm looking at is:31. Rg3 Bf8 32. Qf6!, (32... Be7 33. Qxh8 Rxh8 34. Rg8+). Am I missing something here?<< Look like 31. Rg3 or indeed 32. Rg3 does win on the spot, but after 31..Bf8 the correct continuation is ...
   Feb-08-17 Rossolimo vs Livingstone, 1961 (replies)
mcgee: Hmmm. Having just mucked around with this on the computer, I have a question. What is wrong with 20...Nd7? After 21 Rxd7 e5, Black has done everything he needs to do - keep the white bishop on g3 quiet, prepare to untangle his kingside, and even cause White problems with Bf8-c5 ...
   May-07-16 Larsen vs Najdorf, 1968 (replies)
mcgee: "Najdorf once said I was a gentleman because I let him checkmate me" - Larsen, BBC Master Game 1978-9, just prior to checkmating Donner
   Nov-05-15 Larsen vs Spassky, 1970 (replies)
mcgee: And the finish we were denied: 14...Bxe3 15 fxe3 Rh1 16 Rxh1 g2 17 Rf1 Qh4+ 18 Rf2 g1Q+ 19 Bf1 Qxf1+ 30 Kxf1 Qh1+ and mate follows. Maybe the elusive knight, bishop, rook and queen sac game at the highest level will still occur in my lifetime. I hate the computer for seeing this ...
