   Jan-19-23 D Guigonis vs D Tyomkin, 1997 (replies)
phileasfogg: Why was this a draw? 44. Qe8+ Kg7 45. Qe5+ wins the knight. or 44... Kh7 45. Qxf7+ Kh8 46. Qf6+ wins the knight. Maybe a time scramble?
   Jan-12-23 Golombek vs P Puig Pulido, 1962
phileasfogg: Golombek uses this game as an illustration of what happens when you don't stick to a clear plan. He annotates the game in his introduction to Keres and Kotov's classic book, "The Art of the Middlegame".
   Dec-31-22 Rubinstein vs Maroczy, 1920 (replies)
phileasfogg: <Brenin> So let me introduce to you, the one and only Polish pride, And Sergeant Rubinstein's longterm checkmate plan... What would you think if I.....
   Dec-31-21 Anand vs K Ninov, 1987
phileasfogg: Hinchliffe, this is Game 2 in Vishy Anand: My Best Games of Chess, and Anand says that black should take on g4 anyways. In the line he gives, both sides castle queenside, and white ends up somewhat better.
   Dec-31-21 A A Webster vs Lautier, 1988
phileasfogg: In the 34. Kh3 line, white can hold off a lttle longer if he plays 36...Qxg5, but he still gets mated. 33...Qg1+ 34. Kh3 Qf1+ 35. Kh4 Bg5+ 36. Qxg5 hxg5+ 37. Kh5 g6+ 38. Kxg5 Ne6+ 39. Kg4 Qf5+ 40. Kh4 Qh5# .
   Aug-29-21 Bologan vs S Arkhipov, 1995
phileasfogg: 26. Rd1-e1 wins the bishop, and white goes into the endgame with a bishop for a pawn and some weak pawns to attack.
   Jul-28-21 A Rico Gonzalez vs Najdorf, 1948
phileasfogg: This game is the first game in the introduction of Daniel King's book "Winning with the Najdorf". It states that this is the first time Miguel Najdorf used this eponymous variation himself. The opponent's name is given a Antonio Rico, and the date is given as 1949, but it's the ...
   Mar-24-21 Reshevsky vs Gligoric, 1953 (replies)
phileasfogg: <Ned Merrill: I disagree on the 35.Rxe8 and 36.Nc7+ maneuver winning a piece because of 36...Kd8, 37...Kc8 trapping the knight. Please correct me if I'm wrong.> I think white can save the knight with: 35. Rxe8 Kxe8 36. Nc7+ Kd8 37. Nxa6 Kc8 38. b4 (threatening 39.bxc5
   Jun-13-20 Velimirovic vs R Simic, 1998
phileasfogg: In the main game given, Khorunzhy-Kirpikov, corr. 2014, black plays 2...e6 before playing 6...e5 and white plays 6. Bf4 before 7.Bg5, so the exchange sacrifice comes one move later (same position).
   Dec-24-14 Darius Ruzele (replies)
phileasfogg: Ruzele finished first in the 1986 USSR Junior Championship held in Daugavpils, Latvia. The event was an 11 round Swiss style event. He finished ahead of such noted players as: I. Smirnin, B. Alterman, B. Gelfand, G. Kamsky, V. Akopian, A. Shirov, and K. Sakaev among other strong
