   Apr-14-13 Fine vs Euwe, 1938 (replies)
PeterB: Fine must have been playing quickly by memory, as he had won a brilliant game against Gruenfeld in this same opening a few months before. If memory serves, Gruenfeld played 12... Nb4, thinking to trap White's Q, when Fine replied Qb4!! and won a brilliant game. However, Euwe seems to
   Mar-29-13 Carlsen vs Ivanchuk, 2013 (replies)
PeterB: Why is Black taking so long over his move! As a 2000 player, I would play Nf5 almost instantly - looks safe and strong!
   Jul-13-12 I Theodorovich vs H Ridout, 1976 (replies)
PeterB: Eggman and Mr. Hassan - you are right, Howard Ridout was a long time member of the Scarborough Chess Club! He was very active even when I joined in 1969, and was still organizing tournaments at the time of his death in the 1990s. This game is a good memorial to him! Theodorovitch was
   Mar-16-12 Psakhis vs Savon, 1981
PeterB: GM Pal Benko claims, in the March 2012 issue of Chess Life, that the final position is drawn! Black can play 56....Kd6 or Ke6 and draw.
   Feb-28-12 Bronstein vs Szabo, 1949
PeterB: Apparently the two of them couldn't stand each other. In his book "The Sorceror's Apprentice" Bronstein describes a game where he has totally busted the great Mikhail and after reaching move 40 he gets up for a cup of tea, expecting Botvinnik to resign. Instead when he returns to the
   Nov-11-11 N Maatman vs E Goudriaan, 2011 (replies)
PeterB: Does 33....Nf2 also work? I checked a number of variations and they are similar to the 33....Ne3 lines!
   Oct-21-11 H Bouwmeester vs Botvinnik, 1958 (replies)
PeterB: This position was given in Bouwmeester's book 'Prisma Schaakboek 2', which my uncle sent me some 40 years ago! Bouwmeester states that the solution was first given by Salo Flohr (!) after the game!
   Jun-20-11 Fridman vs Lenderman, 2010 (replies)
PeterB: AliTervia, here is another solution: 1. Fill the 3, and empty it into the originally empty 5. 2. Fill the 3 again, and pour into the 5. This leaves 1 unit in the 3 can. 3. Empty the 5, and pour the 1 unit from the 3 can into the 5. 4. Fill the 3 can, and pour into the 5 can! QED.
   Jun-05-11 Najdorf vs Fine, 1951 (replies)
PeterB: Reuben Fine quit professional chess after this tournament.
   Jun-05-11 Dake vs Fine, 1936 (replies)
PeterB: Why is the final position a draw? After 64...h4 Black has a trivial win! And instead of 64.hg5?? why not 64.gh5=?
