from Brisbane, Australia... rating is very old :) Nezhmetdinov, Fischer, Keres are favourites.

   Nov-29-23 Aronian vs Firouzja, 2023 (replies)
rwbean: Perhaps 40... ♔f7 or 47... e5 still draw. Pawn storm! The black rook is just where it needs to be.
   Nov-21-23 H Rittner vs M Umansky, 1995
rwbean: Looks like a guaranteed draw from move 19 :) Perhaps White knew Umansky was a dangerous opponent, or he'd already qualified for the next event, so he played to draw.
   Nov-21-23 H Rittner vs Estrin, 1968
rwbean: 14... b4?? loses the game, try 14... cxd5 = A beautiful finish though! 21. g4 mate somewhere quite soon 22. ♖h7 mate in 24
   Nov-20-23 T Oim vs H Rittner, 1996 (replies)
rwbean: White is doing ok until move 11 and 12, then he makes some questionable moves, then he blunders on move 15 and the game is lost. He might get away with the moves 11 and 12 in OTB but not in correspondence. It seems 11. ♖e1 or 11. ♗b3 would be ok.
   Oct-30-23 C Yip vs A Ivanov, 2014
rwbean: 28... ♗f6!! 29. ♕xh7+ ♔f8 30. ♖f1 ♕e7 31. ♘xe6+ ♗xe6 32. ♔b2 ♖h5 33. ♕xg6 fxg6 34. ♖xe6 ♖f5 35. ♖xf5 gxf5 36. ♖xe7 ♔xe7 and a draw with opposite coloured bishops. Given that, then, 28. ...
   Oct-11-23 Polgar vs E Mednis, 1987 (replies)
rwbean: Errors: 13. g4? (versus say 13. ♗f4 =) or 23... ♘c6 (23... ♘f3 winning, more White pawns will drop off)
   Oct-09-23 Kolisch vs Anderssen, 1861
rwbean: 14... O-O is even. What's not in any annotation so far is that 16. e6! is crushing e.g. 16. e6 dxe6 17. ♗xe6 fxe6 18. ♕xe6+ ♘ce7 19. ♖fe1 winning.
   Oct-03-23 B Maksimovic vs Carlsen, 2023 (replies)
rwbean: Perhaps white can still draw with 44. ♘a6 but his ♘ and ♗ look quite misplaced. He had to break out with 36. c4 or 40. c4 and Black can't force the e-♙ through.
   Oct-02-23 A Fier vs A Pourkashiyan, 2023
rwbean: Here 15... c4! is the only move, everything else seems to lose by allowing 16. d4!
   Aug-20-23 Kasparov vs G D Lee, 1997
rwbean: Black can draw by repetition with 24... ♗b2 or even get an edge with 25... b5! ... the breakout with ...d5 is coming.
