Dec-21-04  chess man: I enjoyed this game by Larsen. He starts out playing a positional style and then just goes after the king.
Dec-17-06  notyetagm: Moves 32-34 form a lovely petite combination by Larsen to win the game.

31 ... ♖e6? 32 ♗xh7+! ♔xh7 <deflection from f7> 33 ♕xf7+ <pinning Black d7-bishop to undefended c7-queen with tempo> ♔h8 34 ♖x♖e6 <exploiting the lateral pin across the 7th rank>

  whiteshark: A 19th-century steel-hulled schooner-rigged screw steamship, the SS <Copenhagen> was constructed in Sunderland, England. It was registered in Glasgow, Scotland, to the Glasgow Shipowners Company, Ltd., which used the vessel to transport cargo across the Atlantic.

Launched in 1898, the Copenhagen met a watery grave only two years later during a voyage between Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Havana, Cuba. The Copenhagen was transporting some 4,940 tons of coal when, without warning, it ran aground and became stranded on a reef. The crew began to unload cargo and efforts were made to free the ship from the reef but, ultimately, the vessel was abandoned.
