   Oct-10-11 Razuvaev vs J Horvath, 1990
vulcan20: What I'm actually wondering is why Black didn't play ...Be6 either on move 21 or on move 24.
   Sep-18-11 Fischer vs B Kraft, 1964 (replies)
vulcan20: Nope. http://marklangtonreviews.blogspot....
   Sep-10-11 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1985 (replies)
vulcan20: 11...Qxa2 is met by 12. Qd4 0-0 13. Qc3! [DIAGRAM] White is threatening Ra1. The only ways back for Black's queen are to the squares a6 and a4. In either case, White plays Bg2 when Black no longer has a good response to Ra1.
   Jul-22-11 Taimanov vs A Blagidze, 1957
vulcan20: Black gets 40...h4!? with the idea of ...h3+ chasing the king out, which doesn't work after Taimanov's Qe6 because of Qf5-g5+ That's not to say 40. Bc5 is a mistake. I highly doubt Black's attempt at an attack will prove successful, and apparently neither does Fritz 8.(I know, ...
   Jul-17-11 C Garcia Palermo vs Wolff, 1986 (replies)
vulcan20: @Zan Count the pieces after 19. Bxd7 Nxd7
   Jun-16-11 A S Rasmussen vs Robson, 2009 (replies)
vulcan20: @Sho in terms of point count, White is up a piece for a pawn. Yes, the rook counts, even if it's completely and hopelessly entombed.
   Jun-14-11 Tal vs I Nei, 1958 (replies)
vulcan20: @mrbiggs Actually, Nei's idea of ...Nf6, allowing the queen to take on g7, and then ...Rg8 is a good desperation try. 17. Qxg7?? Rg8 18. Qxf6 Bxg2#(!!) shows the nature of black's counterattack. It's easy to stop; even 19. Qxf6 should be good enough to win, but it's better than ...
   Jun-07-11 M Mueller-Seps vs Y Naydenova, 2010 (replies)
vulcan20: I analyzed 21. Bxf7+ Kxf7 22. Qb3+ very carefully, since I don't make enough of these sacrifices, and concluded that Black can defend after 22...Kf6. Lamenting that I couldn't figure out a Tuesday puzzle, my attention randomly turned to e5, as if my subconscious mind knew about the
   Jun-06-11 Ragozin vs Petrosian, 1949
vulcan20: <MarbleSkull: What about 77...f2+ 78.Kf1 Kd2 79.Rf5 e3 80.Re5 Kc2 81.Rxe3 d2 82.Re2 Kc1 83.Rxd2 Kxd2 Leaving Petrosian with the win. Or am I missing something? Please let me know!> 79. Rxb5 instead of the tempo-wasting Rf5 should win.
   Jun-05-11 M J R White vs A Keith Aitchison, 2009
vulcan20: If 26. Qxe6, then 26...Qg3+ 27. Kh1 Rxf6 28. Qd7 Rf7! 29. Qc8 Rf8! with the choice of a forced repetition by ...Qh3+ after taking the rook, or a perpetual attack on the queen who needs to guard h3.
