   Feb-10-09 Rublevsky vs A Scetinin, 1992
mrvertigo: And it seems, as in A Krnjovsek vs Pavasovic, that playing d5 a move earlier would be close to winning. 13.Bd3 has to be stronger.
   Sep-17-08 Leko vs Radjabov, 2006 (replies)
mrvertigo: I think everyone would have solved it in much less time if it had been a Thursday puzzle...
   Jun-17-08 Fischer vs Taimanov, 1971 (replies)
mrvertigo: <15.Bxd6 (attacking Q) ...Rd8 16.BxQ/RxQ > doesn't 17.Rxd1 simply win ? Black cannot then play 17...Rxc2 because of 18.Rd8+. You're correct--I didn't think beyond "it must be bad to take the rook," not finding the most precise reason why. Thank you!
   Feb-03-08 Portisch vs R Garcia, 1966 (replies)
mrvertigo: I actually did see it to the end, although it took me awhile. For me it came down to e5 and d5 being the only candidate moves that seemed to have anything to them; once I got to that point the rest of the work was easy
   Feb-26-04 B Andonov vs Lputian, 1987 (replies)
mrvertigo: I actually looked up the ratings of the players also. Maybe white ripped off the gloves because black played N-a6 (which actually seems sound). B-e3 is the start of the disaster.
   Feb-15-04 Watson vs M Stangl, 1998 (replies)
mrvertigo: well, I came up with Nc6; does that work also?
   Feb-08-04 Short vs A Muir, 2004 (replies)
mrvertigo: I find it strange that black reacted to the double pawn sack like he did. He removed his knights and mounted a lazy attack.
   Jan-24-04 Blackburne vs Lush, 1885 (replies)
mrvertigo: mrvertigo: The game is not excellent. It's rather showy but has a not trivial defect. <Blackburne's 11.Be3 is in a lippant manner. > I Agree. You need a solid reason to make a bishop a 'pawn with advantages' (which I understand, being an avid French enthusiast). Running ...
   Jan-12-04 Bronstein vs Geller, 1961 (replies)
mrvertigo: well, looking at the board the thought 'black's screwed' popped into my head right away. Although I also came up with RxF7.
   Dec-17-03 F Vallejo Pons vs T Hillarp Persson, 2003 (replies)
mrvertigo: an awful blunder for white. He turns down the draw and quickly loses his queen.
