   May-22-22 Geller vs Benko, 1968 (replies)
nizmo11: If the score is correct both made mistakes: position after 59.Nc4 is a tablebase draw, but 64...Ne8 was a losing mistake: [DIAGRAM] He had to play 64...Ng8! (or 64...Ke6 65.c5 Ng8!) with the idea of attacking g4 from h6. After 64...Ne8?? 65.c5+ (65.Ne4+ Kd7 66.Ke5 seems more ...

nizmo11: Perhaps someone more familiar with Soviet chess history this can clarify, but based on my reading of Tkachenko, this match (played in December 1924) was about the 1924 title (3rd Soviet ch): If Romanovsky had won, he would have got the 1924 title, making Bogoljubov's tournament ...
   May-16-22 Nimzowitsch vs G Fluss, 1907
nizmo11: <On the Road to Chess Mastery> gives the original source as <Bachmanns Schachjahrbuch 1907> pages 165-166
   May-14-22 Westerinen vs Antoshin, 1974
nizmo11: Opening variant, played in games 2 and 4 of Morphy - Harrwitz (1858) The pawn sac 11...f5 was not fully correct (I assume it was intentional, and not missing 12.Nxf5 Rxg2 13.Ng3 trapping the Rook), and White's play can be improved. The losing mistake in the endgame was 44.g6, ...

   May-07-22 Lasker vs Marshall, 1907 (replies)
nizmo11: <keg> <Marshall by now may have abandoned any hope of winning the match, and did not fancy playing a bunch of draws. (Only Gary Kasparov ever displayed the ability when down 4-0 and later 5-0> I think Marshall displayed this ability at least to some degree in Capablanca
   May-07-22 E E Book vs V Ingerslev, 1929
nizmo11: This game is the game of the month in Bruce Pandolfini's column 'Solitaire Chess' in Chess Life, May 2022. According to his the introduction, "played in an offhand way" in Gothenburg 1929.
   May-04-22 Saemisch vs Spielmann, 1922
nizmo11: <Ziryab>: <The position after 38.Rxg4 appears in Reuben Fine, Basic Chess Endings without a diagram. Is there anything to learn from such a position?> we can learn one way of defense with pawn in a2: White can allow Black to get pawn to a3, and then enter into pawn ...
   May-03-22 W Napier vs H Wolf, 1902 (replies)
nizmo11: <Keg>: [19...Rf4] <This--at best--was playing with fire. Black draws after 19...NxN 20. BxN c6 21. Qd4 (else White is worse)> You are spot on with the evaluation. But I think quiet 20...c6! is not such an easy move to find in advance during calculations, as it seemingly ...
   Apr-13-22 L Steiner vs Koblents, 1937
nizmo11: Koblents discusses this game in is autobiography "Memoirs of a chess player" (in Russian 1986) pp. 52-53. He writes that this game is memorable for several reasons: it decided the first prize of the tournament, was awarded a 'brilliancy' price, and was the first time he won ...
