Nov-20-03  drukenknight: doing a "games similar" search for the Alekhine game produces several games by Amos Burn. The position in the other game can be reached by transposition from the Burn variation (4...dxe4). In this game: what if 22 Bxg6?
May-24-07  micartouse: Fine's BCE gives the queen ending position after 57. Qc2 Black to move.

Black would like to play ... f5 and e4 and make a passed pawn. However, he must first maneuver his king to the center.

Such king boldness seems counterintuitive since the defender's most useful tactic is perpetual check. However, bringing the king out increases the chance of threatening queen trades.

  Sally Simpson: This 36 round loss enabled Tarrasch to share first place with Pillsbury. There were two rounds left. Both players won their next two game and tied.

Tarrasch won the play off.

Jun-30-16  RookFile: A ridiculous number of games for a tournament, but still and outstanding success for Tarrasch and Pillsbury.

  Sally Simpson: Hi Rookfile,

There were a few of these monstrous tournaments in them days.

Tim Harding is correct when he says then travelling was quite long and awkward so when they gathered all the masters in one place they got their money's worth.
