2009-03-31 07:36:22tjumen1461This is from the French defense. I saw it before. 
2009-07-29 14:15:11Schumi1546Really nice. The mating pattern is clear from the start but how to engineer it is the problem. 
2010-06-08 14:37:36zappash1383How to develop a great global vision!

2011-08-26 14:16:16pinkerton1483A chess master was mated in this game, forgot who, but one of the players in this game was Tartakower. This was in a chess book I read when I was 9 years old.
