   Oct-24-20 Gligoric vs Psakhis, 1986 (replies)
Baby Hawk: In his book "Rethinking the chess pieces" Andrew Soltis uses this as the example game to show that two minor pieces are stronger than a rook and two pawns in a tactical position.
   Jun-18-20 Petrosian vs Botvinnik, 1951
Baby Hawk: Soltis uses this game in his book, "Rethinking the chess pieces" in the chapter on Board Range. The lesson of this game is although bishops usually are stronger than knights on an open board, in this game the extra range is on the empty king side. Petrosian's knights are as good
   Mar-21-20 McShane vs G Jones, 2019 (replies)
Baby Hawk: <Can anyone figure out why White played 13.Kf2?> My guess is that White wanted to connect his rooks, but 0-0-0 puts his king on a open file and 0-0 puts it on a half open file.
   Feb-26-20 Aeroflot Open (2020) (replies)
Baby Hawk: <NotYetAGM> It is very nice to see you are still on I love your work organizing tactical ideas, and use your collection in my chess classes. Thank you for all the work that you have done!
   Jan-12-20 S Rosenthal vs Steinitz, 1873 (replies)
Baby Hawk: This is the first game in "Bishop v Knight the verdict" by Steve Mayer.
   Jan-01-20 I Ivanov vs W M Hughes, 1984
Baby Hawk: The pawn centers are lock up. Since the play is on the wings the kings are safer in the middle.
   Jan-01-20 Kmoch vs Alekhine, 1922 (replies)
Baby Hawk: It is often a bad idea to push your pawns away from your castled king. It is a really bad idea if you do it against Alekhine.
   Jan-01-20 Duncan vs A Alperovich, 1990
Baby Hawk: It seems like a bad idea to move all your minor pieces to the Queen side after castling on the King side.
   Jan-01-20 Sutovsky vs Morozevich, 1998
Baby Hawk: 18.O-O-O O-O-O 19.Bxf5 Qf4+ 20.Kb1 Rxd1+ 21.Rxd1 White is winning. This is very interesting. White wins if he allows Black to castle, but loses if he prevents it.
   Jan-01-20 Sultan Khan vs H Mattison, 1931 (replies)
Baby Hawk: <talsqueen> By move 14 White's king had better pawn protection on e2 than on c1.
