My games for Lithuania team in 1967 "USSR Spartakiad" and Israeli Premier League: Nechemia Kasimov

Currently living in Toronto, Canada.
My family name is Kasimov, in Lithuanian it was Kasimovas. In 1979 Israeli Chess Federation awarded me with National master title for my results on 1st board of "Bat Yam" and "Hapoel" Rehovot teams in Israeli Premier League.

The most memorable game I played against GM Roman Dzindzichashvili in December 1978, when he was ranked between top 20 in the world.

N Kasimov vs Dzindzichashvili, 1978

This game published in the book of Eugenijus Paleckis and Boris Rositsan "├×ydai Lietuvos ├░achmatu istorijoje", Vilnius, 2015 in Lithuanian language.

In the "From the Middlegame into the Endgame" book page 113 Edmar Mednis published my endgame (Kasimov-Komay, Israel 1979).

... White achives a thematic stalemate draw as as follows:

1 ... Ke5 2 Kc5 Kxe4 3 Kc4! Ke3 4 Kc3!

Losing is 4 Kd5? Kf3 5 Kd4 Kg2 6 Ke3 f1=Q!
4 ... Kf3
It is no good going to the e-file, since 4 ... Ke2 allows 5 R:h2 and the f-pawn is pinned. 5 Kd3 Kg2 6 Ke2!! Draw
After 6 ... Kxh1 White stalemates Black with the normal 7 Kxf2 or the "fancy" 7 Kf1.
