   Feb-21-23 Westerinen vs J Dueball, 1971 (replies)

   Feb-17-23 J L Watson vs Z Fayvinov, 1993 (replies)
RadioBoy: I was playing in a local tournament in Columbus, Ohio some 45 odd years ago, and John Watson was playing Charlie Kannal in the last round for the title. For some unknown reason they both refused to write down their moves and were double forfeited. I remember him mentioning ...

   Sep-22-22 J H Donner vs C van den Berg, 1959 (replies)
RadioBoy: <Brenin> RadioBoy: I prefer 52. c5. b4-b5 allows c5 which seems to give black a protected passed pawn and a draw.> <Brenin> 52 b4 c5 53 a6 Kc6 (or Kc7) 54 bxc5 is an easy win for White. However, 53 b5 Kc7 leads to a draw I meant 52. b4 Kc7 53. b5 c5, not 52. b4 c5.
   Sep-16-22 Bronstein vs Botvinnik, 1951
RadioBoy: Why not 48. e6? 48... fxe6 49. fxe6 Ke5 50. Nd7+ Kd6... Black cannot capture on e6 without allowing white's ... Nc5+ & Nxb7 or a later Nxb6 drawing.

RadioBoy: Why not 20.... BxN??
