My primary interest in historical chess is the Cambridge Springs 1904 tournament. I have a non-commercial web site with lots of info. To find it, type the following words into Google: Cambridge Springs 1904 or click here: This link is new as of November 2014 and should be "permanent".

CambridgeSprings1904: In the Wijk ann Zee tournament book, the introduction to this game states, "If you want a lecture on how the Benko Gambit should not be played, you have it right here for free."

   Apr-30-17 Browne vs Miles, 1990
CambridgeSprings1904: This game is featured in Browne's book "The Stress of Chess". Black's 12th move and White's 13th move are missing from the text. In the introduction to the game, Browne mentions that Miles' style of playing off-beat openings actually helped Browne, as Browne had more ...

CambridgeSprings1904: The bulletin from Round 11 of the tournament says this about the game: "The game between Lawrence and Tschigorin was full of vicissitudes but eventually ended in a draw." The game score has two discrepancies compared to the moves listed here, but they appear to be typos

CambridgeSprings1904: For an example of one of Powers's chess columns, follow this link: By the way, chess is alive and well in Milwaukee, with a very active youth chess scene. I'm sure Mr. Powers is smiling down on us from above.

CambridgeSprings1904: ICC members can view a nice video review of this game by GM Joel Benjamin. Some of White's checks were apparently a clock-management ploy, as there was a 30-second increment added after each move. White apparently missed a few wins, including 47.Qd7+. A very interesting
