   May-30-21 A A Smorodsky vs P Romanovsky, 1927
nizmo11: Romanovsky on move 39... "This is a prelude to an interesting combination leading to checkmate. I rate this combination as one of my best in terms of ideas and their execution" (2021, edition transl. by Grigory Baranov) Romanovsky does not comment move 32...a5, and considers 33. ...
   May-26-21 Colle vs Yates, 1928
nizmo11: There was also a faster win: [DIAGRAM] 30. e3! followed by Bc4+. The same idea worked also on the previous move.
   May-25-21 Tartakower vs Colle, 1930
nizmo11: Game 96 in <Kingston,Taylor Edgar Colle, Caissa's Warrior, 2021> Taylor comments on move 9... that in Chess Digest pamphlet, notes by Ragozin, the move was given as Nfd7, but Euwe's book on Colle gives Nbd7. Seeing that Black played 11...Qa6, and White did capture 12.Qxa6 ...
   May-21-21 Lilienthal vs Smyslov, 1941
nizmo11: <wwall>: tablebase says this is a draw, and does not seem to be difficult. 31...g4 looks also good defense as well as 31. h4 gxh4 32.gxh4 Rb2 with similar active defense as in the game. This is endgame E2 in Appendix B in Terekhov's book (starting from move 28...Ke6! ). ...
   May-20-21 Smyslov vs G Dzagurov, 1940
nizmo11: Dzagurov got his revenge two months later: Smyslov vs G Dzagurov, 1940
   May-20-21 Smyslov vs Kirillov, 1940 (replies)
nizmo11: Young Smyslov was very active and strong attacker, here a less strong opponent is swept out in a "Morphy-style" attack. (Terekhov, 2020; game 12). [DIAGRAM]
   May-19-21 Levenfish vs Smyslov, 1949
nizmo11: The brilliancy prize for this game was awarded by Botvinnik (Terekhov). Perhaps he now felt, he could be gracious towards his old nemesis.
   May-19-21 Smyslov vs Panov, 1943
nizmo11: This game is from Moscow championship 1943-44. Botvinnik won the tournament but "Smyslov was declared Moscow Champion despite finishing second as Botvinnik was not resident of Moscow at the time and played <hors councours>." (Terekhov, 2020). How to properly translate this ...
   May-17-21 Smyslov vs Denker, 1946
nizmo11: to the very old comment below <16...b5 17 a4! a6 18 Rd1! and the d pawn can't be defended easily > [DIAGRAM] Timman writes in "Timman's Titans" that in this variation Black has the move 18...Nc6! and if 19. Qxd6 Qxd6 20. Rxd6 then 20...Na5 with full compensation for the ...
   May-16-21 Smyslov vs Ragozin, 1944
nizmo11: <Chessical>: Indeed! The critical position is: [DIAGRAM] It was Taubenhaus who played the correct move here: White is winning after 21...Kh8? 22. Bb2!, while 21... Kf8 is about equal.
