   Nov-05-17 Karpov vs Uhlmann, 1973 (replies)
skemup: Black problems start with ..18a5. White bishop on b5 helps white rooks on controlling e - file and suppourts their invasion on 7th rank (it controls d7 square also, so black cannot play ..24 Rd7 for example). Exgchanging black knight which was controling e7 square and restraining ...

skemup: 15. Qxh6 Kxh6 16.Nxf7++ Kg6 (the longest variation) 17.Rf6+ Kg7 18.Bh6+ Kg8 19.Rg6+ Kxf7 20.Rg7+ Ke6 21.Bg5 with Nf4++ to follow.Does it work?

   Jun-04-17 Tal vs Smyslov, 1959 (replies)
skemup: I can see only one small inaccuracy(?) in Tal's play here, why he did not play simple 22 Nh6+ spoiling pawn structure ?

skemup: what's wrong with 21...Qb4 ?

skemup: White is 2 pawns ahead, so draw for Black is not bad.
   Feb-02-11 Short vs Ivanchuk, 2011 (replies)
skemup: I think 34..Qf4+ works too.
   Jan-13-11 I Figler vs G Borisenko, 1971 (replies)
skemup: what about 17 Bb2? If white want endgame, better remove black rook..
   Dec-30-10 B Kovanova vs N Pogonina, 2010 (replies)
skemup: half satisfied today found Bd5 move but did not notice Qe8 answer.
