   Sep-12-19 Lasker vs Nimzowitsch, 1934
Albion 1959: Odd to think that this was the second and last meeting between these two players, played twenty years apart ! They competed in many tournaments and yet the only met each other twice !
   Sep-12-19 Nimzowitsch vs Alekhine, 1927
Albion 1959: I had a look for a few minutes at the final position, before realising that Alekhine's was a total loss: A possible continuation could have been 57. Qc4+ Kd1 (Kb1 is met by Kxh2) 58. Qxb4 Kc2 59. Qe4+ Kc1 60. Qc4+ Kc2 61. Qb3 Kc1 62. Qc3+ Kb1 63. Kxh2 After which ...
   Aug-26-19 Tal vs Robert E Byrne, 1978
Albion 1959: Vintage Tal !! how does he always create so many open lines for his pieces ? One other statistic, Byrne had the black pieces in all of his six games against Tal:
   Aug-20-19 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2018
Albion 1959: Morphy would never played the Evans Gambit like this. Those rip-roaring flashy sacrificial attacks from the 1850's against Amateur,or AN Other, where he wins in about 25 moves are far removed from Alpha Zero's handling of this vintage opening. A very deep, subtle and ...
   Aug-04-19 D Howell vs Adams, 2019 (replies)
Albion 1959: Why did Howell agree a draw here? He is chasing Adams for first place and has the white pieces? Surely he could have extended himself push a bit harder if he really wants to win?
   Jun-09-19 Ulf Andersson vs G Sigurjonsson, 1979
Albion 1959: An Ulf in sheep's clothing !
   Jun-06-19 Miles vs S Webb, 1975 (replies)
Albion 1959: Where is the rest of this game ? It was listed as 64 moves! So what happened to the other 21 moves ? This game features in Simon Webb's book Chess for Tigers - 1980 I think if memory serves me well:
   May-16-19 Botvinnik vs Stein, 1965 (replies)
Albion 1959: This game features in Ray Keene's book Leonid Stein - Master of Attack, P48. Keene was a friend of Stein and this book focuses on Stein's attacking skill. This game (his only win against the former world champion) was achieved by determined defence, rather than attacking ...
   May-12-19 Short vs Ulf Andersson, 1980 (replies)
Albion 1959: Okay, I stand corrected. It was 1984 when Short won the GM title and not 1979. He probably won the IM title with this win against Andersson:
   Mar-25-19 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
Albion 1959: Had another look at this game again at the weekend. A fascinating and complex game to look at. Game 6 will take the plaudits as Fischer's best game from this celebrated match. But for me this game is right up there. Okay, it was not technically perfect, but these types of ...
