   Jul-17-18 J Littlewood vs A H Perkins, 1975
Albion 1959: John Littlewood was a tricky player, well versed in tactical play. I got to know him in his later years, he even had a look at some of my games! I was struck with tactical lines that he found, that I failed to spot. In his later years he still a strong player, though perhaps not
   Jul-17-18 Short vs Kasparov, 1997
Albion 1959: This is akin to the famous "windmill" attack from the Torre v Lasker game in Moscow 1925. Only in this game there is no checkmate, or large material gains:
   Jul-17-18 A Greet vs G Jones, 2004
Albion 1959: What is this ?
   Jul-16-18 Reshevsky vs Fischer, 1960 (replies)
Albion 1959: From the photo, it looks as it was Reshevsky's 16th move and he played his queen to d2:
   Jul-16-18 Reshevsky vs Fischer, 1965 (replies)
Albion 1959: To Peter Nemenyi - I cannot possibly believe that Fischer had a lost game as early as move 9 after playing d6, instead of d5. I can guarantee that if I put this through any search engine, the losing move will occur much later than move 9! To Hudman 653. At first glance it looks
   Jul-12-18 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
Albion 1959: Forty six years to the day and it is time to revisit the opening game of this historic match. Of course much of the attention has been focused on move 29 Bxh2. Should it be given as ?? or maybe !? or ?!. It certainly livens up the game and avoided what would have been a dull ...
   Jun-22-18 Stein vs Smyslov, 1972
Albion 1959: I had a closer look at this game today. I first came across it back in 1981. This game features in Ray Keene's book Leonid Stein - Master of Attack and in Jon Speelman's excellent Best Chess Games 1970- 80. In both of these books they agree that Smyslov's 19th move e5 was bad ...
   Jun-08-18 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Arkell, 2008 (replies)
Albion 1959: I remember watching this game live on line. It was a fascinating endgame to watch unfold. I had a feeling that white would win, but I did not see how it could be done. Such fine margins in an endgame like this are the difference between a draw or a loss. A sickener for Arkell, ...
   May-17-18 Timman vs A Pomar Salamanca, 1977
Albion 1959: After more than six and half years, it is time to revisit this game. Prior to this game, Pomar held a 2- plus score against Timman. This was Timman's only win against Pomar. I came across this game by chance when a book I was looking at "Test your Tactical Ability" by Yakov ...
   May-15-18 Bird vs Englisch, 1883
Albion 1959: Bird must have been as "sick as a parrot" here? No pun intended!
