   May-19-22 Euwe vs H Johner, 1955 (replies)
backrank: White's 39th move was Tcc1, not Tac1, otherwise 40. c7, followed by Black's resignation, would make no sense.
   Sep-21-19 Capablanca vs E Penteado, 1927 (replies)
backrank: Totally strange to see Capa lose like this :-/
   Jul-28-19 Tarrasch vs Schlechter, 1911 (replies)
backrank: 39... Re3+ isn't better, either: 40. Qxe3 dxe3 41. Rc8+ Kh7 42. Bc2+ Kh6 43. Rh8+ and mate next move.
   Jul-05-16 Nimzowitsch vs H Johner, 1931 (replies)
backrank: A little-known game which has been an old favorite by mine for long. 17. Nc5 seems to be impossible due to Rb5. Surely Black has foreseen that Nxd7 can be answered by Qxa1. But Nimzo had calculated a lot further ...
   Jun-25-16 AVRO (1938) (replies)
backrank: >> AylerKupp: <<offramp> Am I alone in thinking that Kasparov is a better politician than he is a chess player?> You probably aren't. But you and others who share the same opinion should consider that if Kasparov was a better politician than he is a chess player ...
   Jun-07-16 Viktor Korchnoi (replies)
backrank: <gars: I ask myself: are there games in which he sacrifices his Queen? If so, I do not know a single one.> Here is one: Hug vs Korchnoi, 1978 Of course, it's not typical for Korchnoi's style, albeit brilliant.
   Jul-30-14 Aronian vs V Popov, 2005 (replies)
backrank: I have submitted a correction note; now we have to wait if there is any response to it (to my experience, usually there is none).
   Jul-20-14 Spielmann vs Flamberg, 1914 (replies)
backrank: Spielmann made a tarte flambee out of Flamberg.
   Mar-22-14 Ponomariov vs Kramnik, 2010 (replies)
backrank: One of the great games of the 21st century. 16 Bxd5!! is a stunning move, and 19 e6! is a worthy follow-up.
   Jan-25-14 Bill Gates vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
backrank: Was it really Carlsen himself who played this game so weakly? Or did he send a double?
