   Oct-09-21 Geller vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
 
nummerzwei: Could Fischer have won the double rook endgame? Unlike a regular rook endgame, two pawns against one generally give great winning chances. For example, 58...g4 looks good for Black here.
 
   Sep-24-21 Dominik Horvath vs N Huschenbeth, 2021
 
nummerzwei: <Mini Morphy>: The sacrifice is known endgame technique. Here's a list of games with it from TWIC just from the last few years: Stamatovic - Tosic, Belgrade 2015 Prohaszka - Bosiocic, Civitanova Marche 2016 Pourramezanali - Navaratnam, Pattaya 2018 Nikolic - ...
 
   Sep-21-21 Goryachkina vs A Muzychuk, 2021
 
nummerzwei: At move 36, the following position is on the board: [DIAGRAM] White has an extra pawn, but no obvious way of making use of it, and Black's strong passed pawn on the c-file forces her to think about equality. I would have been tempted to blast open the f-file with 36. f6+!? Qxf6 ...
 
   Sep-11-21 Marshall vs Schlechter, 1905
 
nummerzwei: 41...h5 and 42...h4 is now standard, as in the well known games Capablanca vs Yates, 1930 and P Nikolic vs Ftacnik, 1997 . Then White has a very hard time. Instead, Schlechter was on his own and quickly conceded the second half-point.
 
   Aug-21-21 Petrosian vs Averbakh, 1966
 
nummerzwei: After 20 moves, Petrosian has set up a bind on the queenside (I'm unsure if I am going to call it a minority attack). In <Petrosian vs. the Elite> (2006), it was pointed out by Keene that this structure is a recurring feature in Petrosian's games. [DIAGRAM] White tries to ...
 
   Aug-01-21 B Adhiban vs Karjakin, 2018
 
nummerzwei: 29.Rxa7 offers no prospects at all. If White wanted to play doggedly for the win, he would retain both sets of rooks with 29.Ree1. It seems that Adhiban did not fancy his chances one bit.
 
   Aug-01-21 Petrosian vs Benko, 1963
 
nummerzwei: This is the position after 28.gxf3: [DIAGRAM] In the game, Benko played the ugly 28...Qg5+?! which leaves White clearly for choice. Instead, Raymond Keene proposed 28...Nxd3 29.Qxd3 Qg5+ 30.Kf1 Qxh5 31.Rxa6?! (31.Qe4 improves) ...Ra8 32.Rea1 Rxa6 33.Rxa6 Qxe5 with a likely draw.
 
   Jul-22-21 D Quizon vs S Megaranto, 2019
 
nummerzwei: The position after 92.Kg5? Ke4 is a textbook draw. Instead 92.Rh4! Kg3 93.Ke4! wins.
 
   Jul-15-21 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1980
 
nummerzwei: Korchnoi could have played more actively with 13.a4 or 16.Bg3 (intending 17.f4 and 18.Bh4).
 
   Jul-05-21 Gavrikov vs Ashley, 1997
 
nummerzwei: After 35...Ra2?! (35...h5!), White could have caused more problems in the 4 vs. 3 rook endgame with 36.h5!: [DIAGRAM] White plans to activate his king via h3 and g4. Black cannot prevent this with 36...h6 37.Kh2 Rc2 38.Kh3 Rf2 since he is in zugzwang after 39.Ra7!. In this ...
