   Dec-08-20 S Mlotkowski vs Deacon, 1913
morphyesque: The BBC in 1958 ran a chess series on childrens tv called "miniature chess masterpieces".One of the films (this game) was entitled "The ambitious pawn" (also featured in Irving Chernev's "1000 miniature games of chess" in his 1954 book).I was about 12 when I saw this on t.v.It ...
   Jan-12-18 Ftacnik vs O Cvitan, 1997 (replies)
morphyesque: The final black queen sac. reminded me of Maczynski vs Pratten Portsmouth 1948 with the galloping black knights delivering the the coup de grace to the white king
   Jun-17-15 Napoleon Bonaparte vs General Bertrand, 1820 (replies)
morphyesque: Post script to my post of March 12 2010, the games which were filmed were all based on Irving Chernev's 1954 book "The 1000 Best Short Games of Chess".Curiously there was a filming error of "There's Many a Slip" which portrays Andrews vs Janssens London 1864.In Chernev's book ...
   Apr-19-15 Morphy vs T Barnes, 1858 (replies)
morphyesque: Further to my comment of 31/1/2012 I wonder what Morphy made of "The Big Stink" noticeable in London in 1858.This was when raw sewage and human waste was being pumped into the Thames (near Simpsons Divan) before city municipal engineers improved the sewer system.
   Apr-01-15 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984 (replies)
morphyesque: Could someone please explain what Kasparov would have played had Karpov played the pawn fork 18.b4 (instead of Rad1).Does this not win the exchange (or knight) for white?I can only see black's best continuation then as 18...Rxc3 19.Qxc3 d4 20.Qd2 dxe3 21.Qxd8 exf2+ 22.Rxf2 Rxd8 ...
   Mar-12-14 Kasparov vs Gligoric, 1983 (replies)
morphyesque: Perhaps one of you bright sparks could enlighten me and explain why Gligoric did not play 19....Bxe5 for after 20.dxe5 Qxe5 he is a solid pawn up isn't he?
   Aug-08-13 J Schulten vs Kieseritzky, 1850 (replies)
morphyesque: Just noticed "talchess2003" post dated 21/12/03.Yes his name is a mouthful and he achieved negative immortality by losing the most well known game in chess history.To answer your question Kieseritsky originally came from Livonia before settling in Paris.Where was Livonia?Livonia
   Feb-03-13 Miles vs Shirov, 1992 (replies)
morphyesque: Please also see my comments on the Bayonette Attack variation of the KID, in the game Loek van Wely vs John Nunn 1992.
   Feb-03-13 Van Wely vs Nunn, 1992 (replies)
morphyesque: There is another leading game illustrating white's strategy in the Bayonette attack which is Miles vs Shirov 1992 which readers can check.
   Jun-30-12 Anderssen vs Dufresne, 1852 (replies)
morphyesque: Re:Anderssen99 note of May24-12.A better white continuation was 26.Rxd4 Qg6+ 27.Kh1 Qb1+ 28.Rd1 Qb7+ 29.Kg1 Qc6 30.Qh4 O-O-O 31.f6xe7 Rg8+ 32.Kf1 Qxc3 and I rate this +3.72 advantage to white.I can understand though Dufresne playing 19....Qxf3 in 1852 long before chess search ...
