  Chessical: Oscar Chajes seems to be a forgotten man of American chess, despite having once beaten Capablanca (which many of the Hypermoderns never did). He was a natural player as in this example of his attacking flair against a strong opponent.

21.Rxc6! 29.Rxa3! and 34.a8Q! leading to 35.Rxh6! all keep the intiative going

37.Rh8+ also appears to win e.g. 37...Kxh8 38.Qxf7 Qe5 39.Bf5 Qb2 40.Qxe8 mate

39.Bxf7+ Kh7 40.Qc2+ Kh8 41.Ng6+ Kh7 42.Nf8+ Kh6 43.Qg6 mate

  Chessical: "Chajes...had one of the most often mispronounced names in chess history. It is correctly pronounced KHAH-yes (a form of the Hebrew word for "life")". Hans Kmoch
May-30-23  Mathematicar: I'll break 20 years of silence.

Very strong game by Chajes.
