|Oct-27-17|| ||sudoplatov: <Zanzibar> And this give a hint of the strength of Lasker, Capablanca, Tarrasch, and Alekhine.|
|Oct-27-17|| ||zanzibar: <sudo> There be giants!|
|Oct-30-17|| ||Howard: To briefly reiterate a previous inquiry, how does one access the Stockfish analysis to this (very) memorable encounter?|
|Nov-10-17|| ||chessgames.com: Howard, if you look under the game there is a link <A COMPUTER ANNOTATED SCORE OF THIS GAME IS AVAILABLE. [CLICK HERE]>|
However, as I noted earlier, we programmed Stockfish only to comment on what it regards as less-than-perfect play, and in this gem it said virtually nothing whatsoever.
You may also be interested in this page: games annotated by Stockfish.
|Nov-10-17|| ||ughaibu: Chessgames.com: how about another page, one of games so good that Stockfish refuses to comment (significantly) on them?|
|Nov-10-17|| ||john barleycorn: <ughaibu> I support that proposal.|

i saw a link to a YouTube video analysis of the game, I think by MatoJelic. Close to this position the announcer says:
"The white king is finally feeling safe."
Perhaps Assange is feeling secure.
Or perhaps it's a metaphor for the Deep State plot to overturn the election of Trump. The side with deep preparation and resources gets upended by talent.
|Jan-13-18|| ||Ron: Ah, I see that some of my fellow chessgames.com members beat me to it.|
Good to see a acirce posting!
Now to figure out why Assange tweeted a position from this famous game...
|Jan-14-18|| ||offramp: <acirce: https://www.rt.com/news/415802-assa...|
Hello again, <Acirce>.
Assange tweeted a position from this game.

At the moment Assange is still refusing to leave the Ecuadorian embassy. He must be getting pretty fed up in there, and I bet the Ecuadoids are pretty fed up of him.
He is a bit of a Harvey Weinstein character and he cannot evade justice forever.
|Jan-14-18|| ||MissScarlett: <Saying that Assange smells like a “dirty diaper,” and doesn’t take showers or wash himself, a “well-placed” source said that embassy staff have repeatedly complained about Assange’s poor hygiene. The WikiLeaks founder has been holed up at the embassy in Knightsbridge since 2012.>|
No doubt, some will be see this as the usual black propaganda, but these fragrant violations have form: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/arc...
|Jan-14-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: It's interesting to watch journalism anno 2018:|
"filthy bag lady"/“bizarre” acts/dishevelled, like a bag lady/"He smelled as if he hadn't bathed for days.”/"He'd stayed dressed up as an old woman for more than two hours."/“87 per cent slut”/
And this is just an excerpt.
|Jan-14-18|| ||Harrison Bergeron: There is no deep state plot to unseat their favored zionist neoconservative civic nationalist. Assange is a poseur and loves the limelight. He’ll escape the embassy, daringly, in the coming months, and be a free man somewhere else in the world. That’s all to which this refers.|
|Jan-14-18|| ||Ron: 'He’ll escape the embassy, daringly, in the coming months, and be a free man somewhere else in the world. That’s all to which this refers.'|
I'm commenting on your post--which seems to be your first on chessgames.com--so that I can be reminded, when, months from now, your prediction fails.
|Jan-15-18|| ||ColeTrane: great game|
|Jan-15-18|| ||andrewjsacks: Fine and timely GOTD post, CG. Thank you.|
|Jan-15-18|| ||SeanAzarin: And if we can get back to chess...
Capablanca said of this game, "I felt honor bound to take the Pawn, as my position should then be defendable."
After a Titanic struggle, he was [barely] right.
|Jan-15-18|| ||offramp: <Harrison Bergeron: ... He’ll escape the embassy, daringly, in the coming months...>|
It will be the least dramatic and least daring escape in world history. He simply has to walk to the front door of the embassy, open it and walk outside. <Tout simple>.
|Jan-15-18|| ||john barleycorn: <offramp: ... He simply has to walk to the front door of the embassy, open it and walk outside ...>|
It will be tougher for him to return once the embassy is thoroughly aired
|Jan-15-18|| ||morfishine: Very nice post by <visayanbraindoctor> summing up Marshall's record. I used to think Marshall has been somewhat overrated, but not now|
|Jan-15-18|| ||offramp: Marshall invented many interesting gambits.
There is a Marshall Gambit in the Scandinavian Defence: 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Nf6.
There is also one in the QGD Tarrasch Defence: 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5 4.cxd5 exd5 5.e4.
There is one used one in the Semi-Slav Defence: 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c6 4.e4 dxe4 5.Nxe4 Bb4+ 6.Bd2. See R Pert vs J Burnett, 2015.
And there's one in the French Defence, 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 c5.
Then there is the one that can be seen in Nunn vs Hitech, 1992, which has the name "Four Knights Game: Spanish. Classical Variation Marshall Gambit".
But oddly enough, the famous pawn offer in this game, versus Capablanca, is called the Marshall <Attack>, not gambit.
He was a fantastically inventive player but some large losses in matches made his record look much worse than it could have been.
|Jan-15-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: PS But, obviously, the article is not hostile to women... hell no!|
|Jan-15-18|| ||thegoodanarchist: <offramp: He must be getting pretty fed up in there, and I bet the Ecuadoids are pretty fed up of him.>|
So folks from Ecuador are called Ecuadoids? Good to know!
(I thought it was Ecuadudlians)
|Jan-17-18|| ||Sally Simpson: ChessBase have now pick up the Assange message.|
it's obvious, he is planning to escape and fly to Cuba.
|May-24-18|| ||bobbyperezchess: 11...Nf6?! is risky.
Better moves are 11...c6! and the calmer 11...Bb7!? . However, those moves aren't still known in that era! 11...c6 became the main line of the Marshall after Spassky popularized the ...c6 Marshall and used it as a drawing weapon, while the queenside-attacking plan by playing 11...Bb7 12.Qf3 Bd6! 13.Bxd5 c6 14.Re1 cxd5 15.d4 Qc7 16.h3/g3 Rae8 is slightly newer.
