   Jan-14-23 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1974 (replies)
tjipa: I wonder if white, exchanging queens on move 33 could have gotten a better version of this ending. Multiple pawn knight endings with a spare one are considered to be promising, as far as I remember from days gone by, some 40 years ago, when I studied those things.
   Sep-16-22 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1978
tjipa: To my eyes, just insane complications there. On my weak cm level I would be utterly hopeless there. Though, the white could have simplified quite comfortably, at couple of points, so it seems to me. But Spassky needed the win and was not of the drawish guys either.
   Sep-16-22 Klovans vs Tal, 1983
tjipa: Tal got outplayed here in a quite clean fashion. I played with Klovans once, in a rapid tournament, I lost, of course. I remember seeing him on a regular basis in tram No.6, going from Jugla district where he lived to Riga centre where all the chess things were and are going on.
   Dec-26-21 V Asadli vs Caruana, 2021
tjipa: I wonder if Black couldn't apply some pressure with 25... h5. I have the feeling Black is slightly better and the draw was premature.
   Oct-29-21 Gelfand vs D Kollars, 2021 (replies)
tjipa: To me, an engineless patzer, at around 1900 ELO level, this seems like quite remarkable technique by this young GM. Beating His Excelency Gelfand in such a cool fashion is a true achievement.
   Aug-08-21 Karpov vs Andersson, 1969 (replies)
tjipa: After move 59... Pretty cool to see an actual zugzwang when the board is still full of pieces.
   Jul-21-21 Valerij Zhuravliov
tjipa: RIP
   Jul-21-21 V Zhuravliov vs A Vitolinsh, 1967 (replies)
tjipa: A mad game, insights welcome. And rest in peace, IM Valerij Zhuravliov, white here
   Jul-21-21 Michael Arshansky
tjipa: Arshansky was a prominent children and youth chess coach in the Latvian chess scene, at least during 1970-1980s, when I was around there, in Riga Chess School.
   Jul-21-21 Vladislav Zhuravlev (replies)
tjipa: To be exact, here is his chessgames profile: Valerij Zhuravliov RIP The reference:
