   Sep-12-11 Kasparov vs Gelfand, 1993 (replies)
spotkicker: Instead of 10...b4?! suspicious move black could go on by playing 10...Nc6 11.Rfe1 Rc8 12.h3 Bf6. On the other hand 10...b4 11.Ne2 a5 has some weakness. For example 17...a4 (instead of 17...Bb5) was better. However, white has a decisive advantage again. 18.Bc4 and more advanced ...
   Sep-12-11 Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1958 (replies)
spotkicker: 8...Na5 is the first mistake. After 9.e5 black could play 9...Nxb3 10.exf6 Nxa1 11.fxg7 Nxc2 12.Nxc2 Kxg7 is the best way. However this position even is clearly better for white. Weak black squares, undeveloped pieces are the difficulties of black when the king's poisition is ...
   Feb-11-10 J M Lopez Martinez vs M Senff, 2000
spotkicker: 8.ef6 must be a suspicious move.8.Ne4 and white is clearly better. Gerson-Sennf game shows this by continuing with 8...Qd5 9.Ned2 c3 10.ef6 cd2 11.Qd2 and white used the advantage.
   Feb-03-10 M Mostertman vs I Werle, 2009 (replies)
spotkicker: As far as black must have blundered somewhere because it is easy to see that 27...Qc3 wins. 28.Kb1 Qb3 29.Ka1 and 29..Nc3! or 29.Kc1 Rc8 black wins.
   Feb-03-10 Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2009 (replies)
spotkicker: 25.Rd6! is the winning point. It kills the defence of black. 25...Qc5 comes across 26.Re6! and 27...fe6 28.Qf6 goes to mate. Also after 32.Qe6, 32...Kd7 doesn't work because 33.Qd6 wins and there is 33.Qf6 to 32...Kf8.
   Nov-28-09 D Ciric vs E Paoli, 1967
spotkicker: The last and very simple analyse: 27...Re5 28.Qh6 The theme is always the same threatening: checkmate on dark squares(g7,h8).
   Nov-28-09 Salih Muratoglu (replies)
spotkicker: He is a veteran. Despite his old age, he is a good player. He plays blitz very well, but unfortunately there is only one game of his in Because his blitz games aren't in tournaments.
   Nov-28-09 So vs Kamsky, 2009 (replies)
spotkicker: Wesley is coming speedily. I think he is one of the most dangerous world champion candidates with Magnus Carlsen.
   Nov-27-09 Alekhine vs Yates, 1923 (replies)
spotkicker: We have known Alekhine with his sacrifices and combinations. However, here is a counter attack against to him. Alekhine was greater generally, but Yates is great in this game. 33...Rg4!! and rest of Black's moves are brilliant.
   Nov-27-09 Kamsky vs So, 2009 (replies)
spotkicker: It took very long, but at the end Kamsky resigned.
