   Sep-18-22 Winawer vs Steinitz, 1896
thom0909: After 17...Rxe4, I think then Nxf7+ Bxf7, Qxe4. Still good for Black, but better for White than Nxe4.
   Sep-16-22 Ljubojevic vs Andersson, 1976 (replies)
thom0909: Crouch includes this in 'Great Attackers' and quotes analysis by Timman, Nunn and others. He say 24... f5! would have been great for Black (but hard to prove in pre-computer days). So White should have played 24. Bxg7 followed by Qxg7, which would have lead to a threefold draw.
   Sep-04-22 S Haslinger vs P Tregubov, 2010
thom0909: 14...f6 seems to light the fuse, then this becomes wild and imbalanced. White passes up a three-fold draw, but Black gets one in the end.
   Sep-02-22 B Richter vs Tarrasch, 1883 (replies)
thom0909: From move 12 on, Tarrasch is relentless. Pins and forks (threatened). Great lesson in how to use these tactics.
   Aug-23-22 Evans vs Rossolimo, 1955
thom0909: I'm jumping in nearly a decade late, but what's the proof the players were at a used car lot the very next day? Were they really so famous that they would be recognized? And was the tournament winner given the prize car immediately after the win, then they immediately went to sell ...
   Aug-11-22 E Mnatsakanian vs Karpov, 1971
thom0909: 18 Re5 is a great move. Black didn't want to abandon the e-file or trade down more material given his crummy pawn structure. But no way can White trade rooks (fxe5 gives Black a strong central pawn advantage).
   Aug-11-22 H Larsen vs Yates, 1930
thom0909: Maybe white should have traded dark-square bishops on move 16 (given how good that piece was for black).
   Jul-29-22 W Hahn vs Tarrasch, 1891
thom0909: This is in Dreihundert Schachpartien. Tarrasch admits his fourth move error and says 10. c2 was White's first big mistake (could have played e4). Also, 21...c4 is strong. You might expect cxd4, but the pawn couldn't be held and the pawn had bigger tasks to execute.
   Jul-13-22 Rossolimo vs O'Kelly, 1949 (replies)
thom0909: McDonald shows this as a historical game in his book on the Bb5 Sicilian. He suggests that it may be why O'Kelly favored the very early a6.
   Jul-11-22 Rubinstein vs Spielmann, 1912
thom0909: This is in Ed. Lasker's Chess Strategy. He thought White needed to play 17 h3, but the real issue was the weak e4 square.
