  Phony Benoni: Obviously, Black could use a few good chess books. Any recommendations?
Mar-19-07  technical draw: <Phony Benoni> LOL!....
Mar-19-07  laskereshevsky: Maybe BALINT sayed something like:

<"SORRY! SORRY!...i wrong it...may i pull-back the move?!...or at least may we re-start the game?!....PLEASE!!>

and CHERNEV answered:<"...OK,!.... U can try one more time....but i suggest u to play same other opening!....maybe ♙c4?!....">

and then they played game number 2.....

Mar-19-07  CapablancaFan: The Lolli Attack? Can someone explain?

  Calli: Chernev was writing "1000 Best Short Games of Chess" and needed one more.

Mar-19-07  laskereshevsky: <CapablancaFan:> The Lolli Attack? Can someone explain?

<Giambattista Lolli>

Player and theorist (Nonantola, 1698-4.6.1769). He was much friend of <Ercole Del Rio>, from which he had in gift in a 1750 copy of "Over the game of chess".

In 1763 he published in Modena "theorist-practical Observations over the game of chess", work that dedicated to <Del Rio>. The rilevance of the work of the <Lolli> is important for the 100 "partiti pratici", that is "finals", for the first time they try a deepening of the finals of King and pawn vs. King.

The book contains also positions of game played between the two great modenesi, and had great renown also in the following century.

Mar-19-07  CapablancaFan: <laskereshevsky> Thanks.

He's losing a piece, for example 10...Qd6 11. Bxd5 and 11...Qxd5?? loses to 12. Nxc7+ with a family fork.

  FSR: Looks like a good candidate for Chernev's book "Winning Chess Traps" (I don't have it at hand, or I'd look to see whether this trap is in there).
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Ha! This game actually is in Chernev's book (trap 92). As in the other games in the book, the players are not named. What is weird is that I had written on that page of my copy of the book that White had graciously offered a draw after move 10 in Em. Lasker-M. Chernev, skittles game 1935. "M. Chernev" was Irving Chernev's young (12 or so) son; when the former world champion visited Chernev's house, Chernev's son insisted on playing a game with him. (I got this anecdote from some other book.) If the date of that game and this game are both correct, it's very strange that (big) Chernev fell into this trap in an important tournament game 3 years after his son had done so against Lasker.
Mar-15-11  Mjo: 8...0-0 seems to be ok, no?
Mar-27-14  ralph46: <Mjo> After 8..0-0 white can play Nxh7 winning back the pawn with a much better position
