Apr-20-06  Saruman: 18.? a monday puzzle perhaps?
Mar-25-08  sneaky pete: <suenteus po 147> This is game 2 of the play-off for place 4 between Mackenzie (white) and Bird, played on July 27 (as was the first play-off game). I submitted a correction, but that may take some time. The 15 move GM draw that impersonates the 2nd play-off game in your Paris 1878 collection has found a home in my Game Collection: Believe it or not.
Mar-25-08  suenteus po 147: <sneaky pete> Again, I cannot thank you enough for all the research and fact-checking you do. I have a question about this game: Bird vs Mackenzie, 1878 The PGN I used to construct Paris 1878, provided the 15 move game as a playoff game, but the game I linked presents itself as a playoff as well. Perhaps another game for your collection?
Apr-04-08  Knight13: 16...d6? is unnecessary. Bad move.
Apr-04-08  mistreaver: <16...d6? is unnecessary> Yes maybe it is premature and it should have been prepare but it is the best way to undermine white's center. And i think black was strategicaly outplayed by then, he should have played d6 before. And 9 ... ♗xc3, giving the bishop pair away is just bad
