Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-09-15  offramp: Michell did very well here because after he lost a pawn with 25...Ne5 Bogo tried everything to keep the game level. Mind you, 29.Rc7+ looks wrong. It seems to be a tempo-gaining move that loses a tempo.

Great question. I assumed the discussion in Marshall vs Bogoljubov, 1924, where <Sally Simpson> defined it as <December 1922>. He did not state in detail, but I assume he meant Dec. 29, 1922, the date of the treaty and declaration creating the USSR. (As you no doubt know, the other often mentioned date is Nov. 7, 1917, the start of the Russian Soviet Republic.)

By the way, he also defined 1922 as the year the UK was created, meaning the current union of "Great Britain and Northern Ireland." I did not dispute that, although we did discuss some earlier dates that are typically cited.

  beatgiant: Would Napoleon Bonaparte vs General Bertrand, 1820 be the first time a former possessor of a major empire, living in isolation from Europe on an island in the Atlantic, won a game of chess?
