|Jan-07-06|| ||Whitehat1963: I LOVE the puzzle after 13. Nh4. (Also features the Opening of the Day.)|
|Jan-07-06|| ||Whitehat1963: This looks like one of Morphy's quick slaughters. Love it!|
|Sep-07-11|| ||FSR: Me too!|
|Sep-07-11|| ||perfidious: What's hard to believe is that this was played by post-an OTB game would have been understandable with a very weak player sitting opposite.|
|Sep-07-11|| ||FSR: I had the same thought - although of course the standard of play in 1894 in Australia probably wasn't too high. A fairly well-stocked chess library would probably have included a few books by Staunton, Steinitz's "Modern Chess Instructor," Freeborough and Ranken's "Chess Openings, Ancient and Modern," and maybe the London 1883 tournament book.|
And even today there are plenty of weak correspondence players. I once won a postal game that went 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Be7 5.e5 Nh5?? 6.Bxe7 1-0. And then there's the immortal game that went 1.e4 g6 (sent with the note "If 2.Any, Bg7.") 2.Bh6!! Bg7 3.Bxg7 1-0. Or so legend has it - I've never seen the names of the actual players given.
|Sep-07-11|| ||perfidious: <FSR> Tony Albano, an old friend, once won a CC game after 1.d4 following that lovely conditional move.|
When he told me about the postcard, I busted a gut.
|Sep-07-11|| ||FSR: <perfidious> Oh yes, I meant 1.d4, not 1.e4. Good to know it's not just an urban legend. I'm impatient, so I used conditional moves a lot in CC, but most strong players avoid 'em like the plague. Your friend ought to get his game published in Dunne's column or someplace, so we'd have a name attached to it.|
|Apr-24-12|| ||Stefan Buecker: Apperly - Charlick was not a corr. game. It was played in December 1894 in a match on 15 boards between Adelaide and Unley. A contemporary source says that Mr. Apperly played below his usual form.|
|Jun-21-13|| ||optimal play: <Stefan Buecker> You are correct!|
Adelaide v. Unley. A match took place on Monday night at the Adelaide Clubrooms, and resulted in a decisive win for the home team... The match on Monday night will doubtless be memorable for the brilliant game played by Mr. Charlick, who after sacrificing his Queen mated Mr. Apperly with his Bishop in the sixteenth [sic] move. The opening was the Charlick Counter Gambit. The beauty of the end game has not been equalled in the club matches, and merely further emphasizes the greatness of the ex-champion's play.>
- South Australian Register (Adelaide, SA) issue Wednesday 12 December 1894>
The Adelaides and Unleys met on Monday evening, the former winning by 7 ½ to 4 ½ with one undecided. Mr. Charlick defeated Apperly brilliantly by sacrificing his Queen and mating on the 16th [sic] move.>

Suggested pun: "Charlick's Angles"
|Jan-17-15|| ||GoldenBird: I've looked deeply into 1 variation of the 'Charlick attack'. 1.d4 e5 2. dxe5 Nc6 3. Nf3 Nge7, attempting Ng6 to regain the pawn and continue development, any thoughts?|
|Jan-18-16|| ||Christoforus Polacco: <GoldenBird> I have one : play this opening against computer like me a few hundreds time :) Have a good fun !|
|Jun-01-16|| ||dernier loup de T: A pity this strong australian master did never play in Europe or in USA?... New york 1889 tournament for instance... Problem of distance and fees, i suppose...|
