   Jan-20-23 Dzindzichashvili vs Stein, 1971
sachistu: Move 41...Rxd4 is a clear typo, which appears in at least one online database. The move actually played was 41...Rd5 as given Chess Informant #11 game 542 and also in the Gori 1971 tournament booklet and also in Shakhmatny Bulletin, 1971, Issue #5, p141. The rest of the moves are ...
   Jan-20-23 Nikolaev vs V Faibisovich, 1975
sachistu: Regarding the game score, Shakhmatny Bulletin indicates White resigned after 27...Be6. However, Chess Informant #19 game 215 continues the score with 28.Qxe6 Rxb2+ 29.Kxb2 Rf2+ 30.Kb3 Qd3+ 0-1. These last 3 moves may be analysis, but without additional confirmation I hesitate to ...
   Dec-07-22 David Moody (replies)
sachistu: FYI... University of Detroit Mercy is having a fundraiser for a tree dedication in the memory of David Moody <Phony Benoni>. Here is the link for anyone who would like to contribute.
   Nov-20-22 Suetin vs Knaak, 1974
sachistu: One other minor correction: The actual game score went 1.e4 Nc6 2.Nf3 e5 3.Bb5 rather than the more conventional Ruy order of 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 which was used in Chess Informant #18.
   Nov-12-22 A Gorovets vs E Moradiabadi, 2017 (replies)
sachistu: Surely the result is a typo, and should be 0-1 as it is mate next move. I'll submit a correction slip.
   Nov-11-22 N Padevsky vs I Bilek, 1974
sachistu: It's remarkable that there are multiple finishes for this game, especially as Padevsky is listed as the Annotator in at least three sources. The score/finish given here is as given in Chess Informant #17 game 215. (with notes by Padevsky). Chess Player #7 game 113 varies with ...
   Oct-29-22 Boleslavsky vs Smyslov, 1941
sachistu: In the tournament book, Botvinnik claims that if a successful answer to 10.Nc3 is not found, this entire variation will disappear from tournament practice. Apparently it took about 12 years for an improvement. In Christoffel-Trifunovic,Mitropa Cup,1953, Black played 10...Bb4!, and ...
   Oct-20-22 Seefried vs Kunzler, 1924
sachistu: The date is incorrect. It should be Nov 15, 1924 according to Bachmann's Schachjahrbuch (as pointed out in Winter's Chess History). Also this was a rapid transit game, according to Bachmann, who lists White's name as von Seefried. The game also appears in Kurt Richter's book Hohe ...
   Aug-06-22 P Biyiasas vs Ljubojevic, 1973
sachistu: The score is incorrect. White's 13th was 13.h3. Chess Informant #16, game 276 gives 13.h4 as does ECO, which cites CI/16. However, the tournament book, Chess Player Vol 5, Shakhmatny Bulletin, 1973 #11, and DSz 1973, #9 all give 13.h3. I'll submit a correction slip.
   Jul-28-22 G Tringov vs Korchnoi, 1972
sachistu: To address the question raised by <paul1959> several years ago, the game did NOT continue for 11 more moves. When Tringov's sealed move (42) was not found, he was forfeited. Keene/Levy in their book of Skopje 1972 devote several paragraphs to the incident. The moves given ...

Sep-24-14  Calli: Looks like most Morphy v. Morphy games are duplicate Don't know why. As far as the two dates. CKR had the best Morphy pgn of the day and it probably had the two years in there.
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Calli> It's not that the games are duplicates, it's that due to a quirk in how the search works all of them are listed twice.
Mar-20-15  Calli: The Alekhine vs Pinkus/Kevitz in the Brooklyn Eagle:
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Anybody know what's going on at the Rusbase site? Have not been able to connect there for a least a week. Maintenance? Other?
Mar-08-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: Concerning your call for bulletins to ascertain the true scores for T Krabbe vs V Tukmakov, 1966 and for D Rivera vs I Farago, 1966, here's a link to a publication that might be of assistance:

As you can see, IM Jaroslav Šajtar (who I believe was the arbiter of the XIIIth World Student Team Chess Championship at Örebro, Sweden held from July 30 through August 14, 1966) compiled this volume, which was published by the International Union of Students in Prague, Czechoslovakia.

I wish I had this resource. It appears on some collectors' want lists. I don't mean to tantalize you with this information; I do hope somehow this concrete lead aids you in your research.

Kind regards.

Mar-08-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: By the way, I did check Tidskrift för Schack for 1966 and 1967 (both in the year-end Registers and in the apposite 1966 issues), but came up empty.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Thanks <luftforlife>. Sorry for the delay in responding. I have been otherwise occupied. I have Sajtar's book, but unfortunately, it only has a small selection of games and neither of those games are included. Thanks for checking TfS. I thought I had looked there, but another pair of eyes always helps. Again, thanks. Unfortunately, the question remains.
Mar-30-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: You're welcome. Good to hear from you, and good to know at least we've been on the same pages so far. I'll take another, harder look and see what I can find. Kind regards.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: I appreciate your efforts <luftforlife>. Sajtar has edited a number of these World Student Team Championship booklets, several of which I have. Apart from the round-by-round results, he typically includes 1-3 games from each round of the preliminary and final sections. This is far less than the total number of games played at these events. The booklets are useful, and his notes are interesting, but certainly not complete. Good hunting! I will be continuing my search as well.
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: My pleasure! I've left some notes at T Krabbe vs V Tukmakov, 1966. I've also requested definitive verification of the score for that particular game, and I hope my request proves fruitful. Hope you're well. Kind regards.
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: My request proved fruitful. I received a kind, gracious, and helpful reply, with definitive verification of the score and some context as well. Good news!
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Thanks <luftforlife>. I left a post at the Krabbe-Tukmakov game. One to go! (well, actually many to go!)
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: You're welcome! Always happy to help, and especially delighted to deliver good news. Definitude soothes.

Any other conundrums? Please let me know. Cheers!

Apr-05-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: I heard from my source, and I got the straight dope on Pavlos Gesos. Check out his page to learn more. Great work by all concerned. Hope you're well! Best wishes.

Duchamp vs Dake, 1933 (kibitz #35)

Dec-04-16  martin moller: Hello sachistu i have some news on Ruben H. postet on H.Ruben´s games
Aug-15-18  martin moller: Hi sachistu and thank you for dropping by in my forum.

Rudolf Rezso Charousek (kibitz #162)

It would be a way to post the link here and then delete?


Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: You can give it a try <Jean Defuse>.
Nov-23-18  Jean Defuse: ...


-all the best-



Nov-23-18  zanzibar: <Jean>/<sachistu> - caveat emptor...


Yet of the few comments most do seem to agree with the previous link's assessment.

(Personally, I don't use any sharing sites that require me to download an executable first)

Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Hi <JD> I suppose I had something a little safer in mind. And thanks for your words of wisdom <zanzibar>.
Nov-23-18  Jean Defuse: ...

<No reason for paranoia, every thing is safe!> I use zippyshare over the years without problems (a simple 1-klick download) - use a better browser or take a simple download program...

-good luck-


Nov-23-18  zanzibar: <Jean Defuse> it's likely safe, according to Norton (though it seems from the comments that earlier Norton ratings raised a caution). A Yahoo board says it's safe as well, but tends to introduce a lot of pop-ups.

Sure, a good browser automatically suppresses those.

And I agree, you've probably grow comfortable using it - and that I'm probably a little bit overly cautious.

But as a general rule, not running executables from file-sharing sites is a "good idea". As in, better safe than sorry.

There are ways to make files available where one can do a direct http download without the overhead.

Sorry, if all this is unwelcome, but I really am just trying to be helpful (and cautious).

Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Thanks <JD>. I saw a similar comment to yours on one of the security websites. Good to know you have had a trouble-free experience with zippyshare.
