   Aug-11-22 E Mnatsakanian vs Karpov, 1971
thom0909: 18 Re5 is a great move. Black didn't want to abandon the e-file or trade down more material given his crummy pawn structure. But no way can White trade rooks (fxe5 gives Black a strong central pawn advantage).
   Aug-11-22 H Larsen vs Yates, 1930
thom0909: Maybe white should have traded dark-square bishops on move 16 (given how good that piece was for black).
   Jul-29-22 W Hahn vs Tarrasch, 1891
thom0909: This is in Dreihundert Schachpartien. Tarrasch admits his fourth move error and says 10. c2 was White's first big mistake (could have played e4). Also, 21...c4 is strong. You might expect cxd4, but the pawn couldn't be held and the pawn had bigger tasks to execute.
   Jul-13-22 Rossolimo vs O'Kelly, 1949 (replies)
thom0909: McDonald shows this as a historical game in his book on the Bb5 Sicilian. He suggests that it may be why O'Kelly favored the very early a6.
   Jul-11-22 Rubinstein vs Spielmann, 1912
thom0909: This is in Ed. Lasker's Chess Strategy. He thought White needed to play 17 h3, but the real issue was the weak e4 square.
   Oct-10-19 Benko vs K Burger, 1965 (replies)
thom0909: 1-0? Did black run out of time?
   Oct-10-19 Breyer vs Tarrasch, 1920
thom0909: This is a really nice "siege" game. Some clever moves by both sides to try to capture/save the c5 pawn.
   Sep-16-19 Tal vs Rantanen, 1979 (replies)
thom0909: Tactical problem aside, 17...c5 looks bad (was he worried about White playing c5?) and Bxd1 is just greedy at the wrong time.
   Sep-05-19 Petrosian vs J Yuchtman, 1959 (replies)
thom0909: Black seems to be flailing his last seven moves. But he wasn't in a good spot before then.
   Aug-26-19 B Lasker vs Tarrasch, 1882
thom0909: There's a Sicilian game between these guys in 300 Chess Games where Tarrasch whips him with a quick attack as black. Alas, not on this site.
