   Jun-01-19 K Gulamali vs A Tari, 2016 (replies)
Danoboston: Extraordinary mastery of the geometry in this mating net.
   Jan-29-18 V Akobian vs O Kobo, 2018
Danoboston: No, the board in the final position is not upside down!
   Jan-17-18 V Akobian vs P Ponkratov, 2017
Danoboston: Watching Grandmaster Akobian's play, it all seems so crystal clear -- as was the case with many of the games of Capablanca. Of course, being "crystal clear" doesn't mean that I have the ability to play each phase of the game with this apparent effortless clarity -- much less do ...
   Sep-28-17 M Burrows vs V Akobian, 2017
Danoboston: GM Akobian's rook sacrifice on b2 against the castled king reminds me of his outstanding and more complex rook sacrifice on g2 in his win in the 2012 U.S. Championship against Gregory Kaidanov: Kaidanov vs Akobian, 2012
   Sep-28-17 V Akobian vs I Khmelniker, 2017
Danoboston: A very complex work of defense and then of counterattack by GM Akobian! I will need to go over the game with a computer as many of the moves were not intuitive -- at least for me.
   Jan-10-17 Fischer vs W A Nyman, 1964 (replies)
Danoboston: <morfishine: As to your statement: <For example, Simon "Ginger" Williams attained a rating of 2200+ by the age of 12, but nobody heralded him as a "prodigy". Fischer was hanging around 1700 at that age. Some "prodigy"> At age 13 Fischer was rated in the 1700's. During ...
   Nov-08-16 M Giles vs Browne, 1988 (replies)
Danoboston: I played in the 1988 U.S. Open. Once my game finished, I watched the last 5 or so moves of this game and was amazed at the final combination.
   Mar-09-16 P Stein vs E Schiller, 1987 (replies)
Danoboston: Schiller's suggestion of 10…b5 does not end well for black after 12. e4 b4 13. exd5 bxc3 14. dxe6. For example, 14…f6 15. Bh4 Qf4 16. Rxh2 Qxh2 17. g3 Or 14…fxe6 15. Qe3 and if 15…Qd6 then 16. Rxh2
   Sep-12-15 Alekhine vs Mooyman / Citroen, 1933 (replies)
Danoboston: As to zb2cr's comment, "Not sure the right move is if 18…Qe5" If 18… Qe5, then 19. Qd8+ and: A. 19…Nf8; 20. Rf1, Bf5; 21. Qxa8 A1: 21…cxd4; 22. Rxf5 A1a: 22…Qd6; 23. Qe8, h6; 24. Rxf8+, Qxf8; 25. Ne7+, Kh7; 26. Qxf8, h5; 27. Qf7 with mate next A2: 22…Qxe4; 23.
   May-03-11 J A Curdo vs L Mercuri, 1982 (replies)
Danoboston: I have played John in two tournament games (he won both). He is not only a strong player (over 2250 at about age 80) but a gentleman.
