   Bowen Island has kibitzed 95 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-23-14 Spassky vs Beickert, 1991 (replies)
Bowen Island: Was this a simultaneous display game?
   Apr-23-14 Spassky vs Krasenkow, 1992
Bowen Island: One might wonder how after the well publicized crushing by Spassky of Geller in 1968, in the Candidates, using the Closed Sicilain, why Krasenkow wasn't better prepared against Spassky for this variation...well, Krasenkow was only four years old at the time of the famous match!
   Apr-13-14 O Quinones vs K Darga, 1964
Bowen Island: From Taylor's "Alekhine Alert" book, pg 168, correct is 28. Qxb6 Na4; 29. Qb3 Rfb8; 30 Nb5 Nxb2; 31 Rd2 Na4 with approximate equality.
   Mar-30-14 Valentin Bogdanov
Bowen Island: An I.M., Bogdanov wrote an opening book called "Play the Alekhine" for Gambit Publishing (2009). Apparently, this was his third book for Gambit Publishing.
   Mar-29-14 Clark vs G Burgess, 1989 (replies)
Bowen Island: Not the old: "2 Bishops and 2 Knights, mate in the middle of the board trick" so cliched! Actually a lovely final position, I wonder how far in advance Burgess saw it!?
   Mar-11-14 V I Lenin vs M Gorky, 1908
Bowen Island: Next you'll be telling us the game was NOT played in Gorky Park!
   Jan-09-14 Kasparov vs Short, 1987
Bowen Island: This game is a rapid game of 25 minutes each and is covered with annotations in "Win with the Stonewall Dutch," by S. Johnsen and I. Bern.
   Dec-24-13 Ivar Bern (replies)
Bowen Island: Maybe Chess Life misspelled his name; on the "Win with the Stonewall Dutch" book which he co-authored he spells his first name Ivar.
   Dec-19-13 Grigory Ionovich Ravinsky
Bowen Island: Check out ICC for Larry C's demonstration of a brilliant win by Ravinsky over Panov in 1943. Game 11 above!!
   Dec-13-13 Jacob Aagaard
Bowen Island: Thank you, waustad, for finding those games. I enjoyed playing over them.
