   Nov-25-23 Gheorghiu vs Portisch, 1969 (replies)
FM David H. Levin: It took a while for me to figure out why White would have resigned rather than playing 37.Ke1. Black then would have 37...Qh1+ (If now 38.Qf1, then 38...g2 wins.) 38.Ke2 Qh2+ 39.Ke1 Kf8!, which would deprive White of an immediate check and prepare an escape route via e8 if
   Nov-01-23 Rotlewi vs Teichmann, 1911
FM David H. Levin: When I initially played quickly through this game, I was at first baffled by 19...Rd8, of which the ultimate point might be 37...Qe5!!. If this game doesn't merit inclusion in Teichmann's "notable games," I'm sure looking forward to seeing some of the games in that list.
   Oct-28-23 J Fang vs D H Levin, 1980
FM David H. Levin: I think I see what the problem is. Black's 27th move is given as Nb2 instead of Nxb2+. Possibly problematic is that Black's 37th move is given as d1 instead of d1Q+ (for example). Both of these inaccuracies were in the PGN that I submitted. Sorry about that. The software ...
   Oct-20-23 James R West
FM David H. Levin: <<GrahamClayton>: Interesting to note that West has written a book on the "Philidor Counter-Gambit" 1. e4 e5 2. ♘f3 d6 3. d4 f5, as well as playing it for a long time, but none of these games as Black are in the database.> A game I played against West that ...
   Oct-17-23 Adams - Hydra Match (2005) (replies)
FM David H. Levin: <Schwartz: <About 110 minutes a side.>> Thank you. Was that brought about by something like 100 minutes for the first 40 moves, with a 15-second delay per move? Was the second time control also formulated as non-sudden death?
   Oct-16-23 E Tate vs Yudasin, 1997 (replies)
FM David H. Levin: This game also appears as #107 in the list of Tate's games (with the event given as "U.S. Masters"). Perhaps the notes on the present page can be transferred to the page with the comments, and the present page then deleted.
   Oct-05-23 I Novikov vs Chernin, 1980 (replies)
FM David H. Levin: <King.Arthur.Brazil: But B could resist with: 25. Qxe7 Qf6 26. Rfe1 Rf8 27. Re6 Qxe7 28. Rxe7 Rf7 29. Re6 Rf6 30. Rce1 Kg7... I don't know if this is enough to win.> After 25. Qxe7 Qf6, White seems to have 26. Rce1 Rf8 27. c5!, being that the absence of a White rook ...
   Sep-24-23 G G Haase vs O Sarapu, 1969
FM David H. Levin: <<iron maiden>: ... After 46...e5, White loses whichever move he plays--but if it's Black's move, then White would be okay.> It seems to me that after 46...e5, Black threatens (1) ...Ra4-a2-c2-c1 or (2) ...Ra4-a6-e6 followed by advancing the e-pawn, and I don't
   Sep-01-23 D Paravyan vs L Krysa, 2020 (replies)
FM David H. Levin: After 37.fxe5 Nxa4 38.exf6 Qg8, my calculation continued 39.Qg3 (Threatening 40.Re8.) 39...Qxg3 40.Re8+ Qg8 41.f7. [DIAGRAM] Only after typing the above text (excluding the FEN for the diagram, which I typed last) did I realize that Black can then try 41...Qf8 (Hoping for ...
   Aug-29-23 Lone Pine (1974)
FM David H. Levin: Why do rounds 5 through 7 display asterisks for player #51 but hyphens for player #53?
