   Jan-08-21 I Bilek vs Ivkov, 1964
notmtwain: I.A. Horowitz admired the "witty sacrifice of the exchange" on move 24. ("Chess Games to Remember")
   Jan-03-21 Alekhine vs A Lenton, 1936
notmtwain: A nice finish.
   Jun-14-18 G Marco vs Lasker, 1890
notmtwain: is a thorough review of this game.
   Jan-08-18 Rozentalis vs I Georgiadis, 2006
notmtwain: Nice analysis of this game on YouTube:
   Sep-08-11 Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858 (replies)
notmtwain: "Mar-24-09 [walker: Why Bobby annotated this game?] ; They were comments Fischer made on a Yugoslavian television show, as he played through this famous game on one of those large hanging demonstration boards." Anyone have more information on this Yugoslavian ...
   Sep-08-11 Fischer vs Bronstein, 1970 (replies)
notmtwain: There's really no reason to say those are Fischer's annotations since no source is given. In fact, I have looked through the 18 games posted here and I see no source listed anywhere. Does anyone have any info on the source of these annotations?
   Jul-05-11 Ribli vs Karpov, 1980 (replies)
notmtwain: Alex Yermolinsky has just posted a great lecture on ICC on this game. It is #4 of his "Every Russian Schoolboy Knows" series. Many things you guys have already covered. One thing I don't see here is appreciation for the three pawn moves 22-24 slowly building up the position.
   May-13-11 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1980 (replies)
notmtwain: Game was discussed on ICC this morning during current candidates match coverage. Yasser Seirawan was Korchnoi's assistant and helped with adjourned analysis. He reportedly came up with the 45 g4 move at adjournment, which presumably would have been at move 40 or 41. Petrosian's ...
   Apr-01-10 Gelfand vs Ponomariov, 2009 (replies)
notmtwain: In the column referenced above, Kavalek says this is a Paulsen Sicilian (B41), not a "Horwitz Defense" (A40). I looked up the A40 Horwitz defense games here and they seem to be e6 and f5 defenses to d4, so this should probably be reclassified.
   Mar-24-10 M Rahal vs Bologan, 2005 (replies)
notmtwain: 31 Nb3 appears to be the losing move because it gives the black queen access to b7 and c6 (which forces resignation a few moves later). But you can trace the weakness on that diagonal back to moves as early as 10 Kh1 and 14 Nd1 allowing 14.. a3. I know the Kh1 move is a standard ...
