   Jul-23-20 Alekhine vs Prokes, 1922 (replies)
Calli: <zydeco> I agree. exchanging rooks is a bad idea. Also he can just play 44...Rf2 immediately.
   Jul-06-20 Morphy vs J Carr, 1858 (replies)
Calli: Here is a 1906 BCM article on G.S. Carr It mentions Jabez was indeed a Dr. and so I correct my comment from 2008.
   Mar-20-20 World Championship Candidates (2020/21) (replies)
Calli: RD4 predictions: Fab-Nepo Leaning Fab, but probably a Draw Wang-Kiril Wang win Ding-Giri Ding win MVL-Gris Draw
   Feb-19-20 F Cruz vs Seirawan, 1994 (replies)
Calli: Joel Benjamin who was sitting next to Yasser when he played this game at this Olympiad analyses the endgame:

Calli: <Sokrates Also a cheer for Wesley so for an honorable third place.> If he beats Magnus tomorrow, he finishes second.
   Sep-17-19 Morphy vs F Perrin, 1857
Calli: <MissScarlett> All is revealed in Game Collection: Morphy New York 1857 - Non Tournament I believe the game ended with 25.e6+ Kd6.
   Sep-15-19 Alekhine vs K Junge, 1942 (replies)
Calli: After 23...c4. Alekine says "It is already the end. To 23...Nd5 White would have replied 24.Qf3 after which Black's position could not be held." Hmm, 24...Nf6 and then what? [DIAGRAM]

Calli: Thanks for the Morphy correction. Did the Morphy collections a decade ago and don't remember my source or what mislead me on the date for that game. Noticed that CG's 33rd move was not actually played in that game.
   Aug-28-19 Paul Demoulin
Calli: Paul Demoulin died in January. Two months short of a 100 years old.
   Aug-22-19 Capablanca vs A C Thomas, 1926 (replies)
Calli: AlFred sadly missed that after 22...Nxe1 23. Rb3, he had 23...Nc2! and the White Q can't move, i.e., after 24. Qa4 then Rd1+ 25. Nxd1 Re1#
