   AlbertoDominguez has kibitzed 30 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-30-18 Harrwitz vs Loewenthal, 1853
AlbertoDominguez: According to Zenon Franco, this was game 18 of the match.
   Sep-19-18 V Fernandez Coria vs Belloc, 1982
AlbertoDominguez: This game is misattributed. Valentin Fernandez-Coria died in 1954.
   Jul-22-18 Botvinnik vs Rokhlin, 1927
AlbertoDominguez: Soltis has an interesting story about this game in his biography of Botvinnik.
   Jul-02-18 N Whitaker vs Capablanca, 1913
AlbertoDominguez: <Whitaker overlooked an easy draw towards the end: 63.Qxh3+!> According to Chess Stars, this draw was not there because Capa's previous move was 62....Bf5, rather than 62....Bc4 given above.
   Jul-02-18 Quadrangular Masters (1913)
AlbertoDominguez: Fun Fact: Duras is the only participant who never defeated Capablanca.
   May-19-18 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
AlbertoDominguez: <<Stonehenge>> I can't be 100% sure, but I am fairly certain that the picture is actually of Reshevsky. It's blurry, but it looks like the signature sailor suit he used for simuls as a child. It doesn't look very much like ...
   Apr-21-18 E Corzo vs Capablanca, 1902 (replies)
AlbertoDominguez: According to every other source I've seen (Edward Winter, Hooper & Brandreth's The Unknown Capablanc, Reinfeld's The Immortal Capablanca, Panov's book, Linder's recent book on Capa, Lakdawala's Move by Move book, and the Chess Stars collection of Capa's games), White in ...
   Apr-16-18 B Fleissig vs Schlechter, 1893
AlbertoDominguez: <thomastonk: I observed this some time ago, when I read that Schlechter claimed that he led this chess column since 1892 (instead of 1893).> This makes perfect sense, since Dr. S. Gold arrived in the US on December 11, 1892 (according to Wikipedia).
   Mar-22-18 Ruslan Ponomariov (replies)
AlbertoDominguez: The page reads "The following year he was eliminated from the FIDE World Championship Knockout Tournament (2001) in the first round by Vietnamese GM Thien Hai Dao." That should read the 2000 tournament. Pono actually won the 2001/2 tournament.
   Mar-05-18 Smyslov vs Reshevsky, 1991
AlbertoDominguez: There appears to be an error. Moscow Veterans (Boensch,U) is listed as game 2 at classical time control. I believe it was actually game 4 at the G/30 control. This is supported by Kasparov's MGP4 Game #23, which lists it as match game 4.
