   Sep-27-21 Najdorf vs Ree, 1971
sachistu: Thanks for your feedback <Honza Cervenka>. In the last line you gave, I had considered a different order e.g. 48...Bc2 (instead of ...Nb3), but then wasted a move by playing Rxa6 (and then returning to d6 after ...d3) instead of just bringing the King over. Your analysis is ...
   Sep-25-21 V Soultanbeieff vs M Monticelli, 1933
sachistu: The move 19.Bxe6+ has been criticized as after ...Nxe6 White played 20.Qf5, and after 20...Nf8! Black was already winning. However, it seems White could have played 20.Qb3! pinning the Knight. I don't see any thing better than 20...Qc8 when White has 21.Rxe6! and after winning the ...
   Sep-24-21 R P Michell vs J W te Kolste, 1927 (replies)
sachistu: Although it really does not alter the game result, Black's 46th was 46...Ba4 (not ...Ba6) with the rest of the moves as given here. See BCM, 1927, p328 where a diagram is given after Black's 45th. The same position was given in BCM, 1970, p363, with the moves (as given by W. R. ...
   Aug-31-21 C Horvath vs L Bronstein, 1979
sachistu: Apparently, there were more moves in this game. In a theoretical article, Adorjan makes the comment: "and after further struggles, the game ended in a draw.". My database has 49 moves, but I can't cite the source of the remaining moves (after move 25). By the way, White was Tamas ...
   Aug-31-21 J Yuchtman vs Y N Sakharov, 1956
sachistu: <jerseybob> 13...Qb4 was in fact the move played in the game. 13...Qb5 is a clear typo from Chessbase. The game is given in Shakhmatny Bulletin, 1957, Issue #5, p142. The rest of the game is as given here, although in the interest of full disclosure, SB had a typo on move 39 ...
   Jul-30-21 Stahlberg vs Eliskases, 1948 (replies)
sachistu: The score is incorrect. It should be 11.Rad1 (not Rfd1). As a result, move 14 is Rc1 (as only one Rook can go to c1) and move 17 is Rfe1 with the rest of the moves as given. See Chess Review,1948.May, p22 and El Ajedrez Argentino, 1948,Nov-Dec,p210. I'll submit a correction slip.
   Jul-17-21 Polugaevsky vs W Schmidt, 1970
sachistu: Black was Wlodzimierz Schmidt. Chess Informant #10 game 428 mistakenly listed Bednarski as Black. Bednarski was White against Geller in the 5th round match of Poland vs the Soviet Union. (see also Chess Informant #10 game 291). I'll submit a correction slip.
   Jun-19-21 S Mohr vs Barbero, 1988
sachistu: Thanks! <Stonehenge>.
   Jun-08-21 Arnold N Rubinsztein
sachistu: Rubinsztein is an interesting spelling, and one that is new to me. In 1958 and earlier, his name was listed as Arnold N. Rubinstein in the South African Chess Player. For some reason, in 1960, the South African Chess Player listed the name as Arnold N Rubenstein following his ...
   May-27-21 Opocensky vs H Kramer, 1947 (replies)
sachistu: Small correction: the page number in TKNSb is 127 (not 128).

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.

  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.

  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.

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

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>.

  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.
