   Bowen Island has kibitzed 93 times to chessgames   [more...]
   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.
   Jun-26-13 J Cukierman vs Tartakower, 1930 (replies)
Bowen Island: An off hand game in a pub, close to closing time? Hard to imagine there was anything of a serious nature to the setting considering the moves.
   Jun-20-13 I Popov vs D Frolyanov, 2013 (replies)
Bowen Island: I assume time was a factor in the final result as the position is a dead win for Black!
