  Phony Benoni: There ought to be a decent GOTD pun for this game, but darned if I can think of it. <Bad Bad Leroy Dubeck> just doesn't work for me, though it does describe the game quite well.

Hans Kmoch, in the October 1958 issue of <Chess Review> (p.313), wrote: "The game deserves to be followed with speechless admiration. We feel almost obliged to apologize for having made some annotations."

Jan-19-12  Shams: White's only game in the database-- what a crush. Weinstein was the U.S. Junior Champion the year this game was played. He may not yet have been an IM but he was at least still sane, his psychotic break a few years down the road.

Surely 8...Nxc4 is the move.

  Phony Benoni: <Shams> No doubt that Black should have played ...Nxc4 on more than one occasion, but he may have already wasted too much time.

Leroy Dubeck, despite having no other games in the database, is hardly an NN who got lucky. Only 19 at the time of this game, he later became a master and served as president of USCF from 1969-1972. Like everybody else active in US chess at that time, he is credited with getting Fischer to play at Reykjavik.

Frankly, this sounds like one of those self-written Wikiographies, but I did like one casual statement at the end:

<"At chess, he plays the Morra Gambit.">

Oh. Too bad somebody didn't tell Weinstein!

Jan-20-12  King Death: <Phony Benoni> It looks like Sam Sloan originally wrote this and I don't know how much faith I'd put in that.

In this game he made mince meat out of Weinstein after a weak defense against the Morra.

Apr-14-12  computer chess guy: 6. .. Na5 is horrible. .. Bg7 is usual here.
Apr-14-12  transpo: 5...g6?! 5..d6, keeping an eye on e5 which is a focal point for tactical shots in the Smith Morra Accepted when White plays e5 to initiate attacks.

How about:

1)Dubeck gives check, Weinstein says “no Morra”

2)Everybody loves Raymond, except Leroy.

3)Dubeck wants Morra Weinstein.

4)Do check, Dubeck

5)Dubeck gives check, and Morra

6)Weinstein wants no Morra from Dubeck

Sep-18-13  jerseybob: I knew Dubeck in my days at Temple U. and in the Philly chess scene, and he's a very strong master. One game that should definitely be in this database is his win against Eric Bone from one of the U.S. Opens back in the 70's. Brilliant game.
Sep-18-13  Shams: <jerseybob> Wow, what a stunner. Found and uploaded. With a name like 'bone', it's just begging to be GOTD.
