   Jan-16-19 Capablanca vs Ed. Lasker, 1924
Albion 1959: Capablanca feeling a little generous ? I though he would have played on here, given his record against Ed Lasker, he could have probably run him down by virtue of his superior technique?
   Jan-16-19 Capablanca vs Ed. Lasker, 1915
Albion 1959: The rook sacrifice on move 11 is well known to theory, so anyone who gets the chance to play it cannot claim credit for finding this over the board. This is another fascinating and instructive endgame from Capa. I am surprised that it never made it into Chernev's Capablanca's ...
   Jan-16-19 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Y Benmessaoud, 2004
Albion 1959: Was this a simul game ? This would explain the quality of the opposition playing the black pieces:
   Jan-13-19 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018 (replies)
Albion 1959: Why did they not pull the plug at move 118 ? Save everyone another eighty pointless moves !
   Jan-13-19 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018 (replies)
Albion 1959: Why was a draw agreed here ? What happened to the draw at move 255 ? Maybe the programmers were getting a bit bored and so they fancied a day off ?
   Jan-09-19 B Cheng vs G Quparadze, 2018
Albion 1959: Move 150. Kc4?? Black could have fought on with 150. Kb5,though white must be winning eventually?
   Jan-07-19 Petrosian vs W Schmidt, 1972 (replies)
Albion 1959: In Star Trek parlance, Spock would say "It's chess Jim, but not as we know it!". Moves like Bxc6+ on move 8. Rg1 on move 11. followed by f3 and Kf2 to unravel the position. Typical Petrosian. I knew a club player who was a big TP fan, studied his games and even tried to play TP,
   Jan-07-19 Petrosian vs Larsen, 1972
Albion 1959: Two of Fischer's "Bunnies" slugging it out. Fischer was World Champion at the time!
   Jan-02-19 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018
Albion 1959: Arrrrgh !! I can't take anymore of this type of chess. What was the purpose of the last 140+ moves? Maybe one of these machines would eventually blow a gasket?
   Jan-02-19 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2018
Albion 1959: Did either of the programming teams think about pulling the plug on this about 75 moves earlier ?
