   Jul-20-19 Anderssen vs Dufresne, 1851
 
Bubo bubo: A foreshadowing of the Evergreen Game... 29...Kxd7 30. Rcd1+ Ke6 31. Qc4+ Ke7 32. Rd7+ Kxd7 33. Qxf7+ Qe7 34. Rd1# would have been a nice finish.

Bubo bubo: <Removal of the guard> with 27...Rxc3 is so easy for a Wednesday that it is almost difficult again - I wasted some time searching for some hidden snag.

Bubo bubo: <zanzibar: <wtpy> google is your friend... https://repository.up.ac.za/bitstre... That's her doctoral dissertation; the thesis about chess as a therapeutic tool is her Master's thesis: https://repository.up.ac.za/bitstre...

Bubo bubo: Dear <keypusher>, it seems as if you like the Mammoth Book and so my comment offended you. That was of course not my intention - I apologize! In fact, I did not take any further look into the book until today - discovering the absence of the Opera Game and the presence of ...
 
   Nov-14-18 D Perrett vs I Efimov, 2008 (replies)
 
Bubo bubo: Black forces mate with 26...Re2+: A) 27.Nxe2 Qxe2+ 28.Kg/h3 Qf3+ 29.Kh4 Qg4# or 28.Kg1 Nf3# B) 27.Kh3 Qf3, and White cannot prevent 28...Qg4#.
 
   Nov-13-18 K O'Brien vs D Salter, 2008
 
Bubo bubo: Mate-in-4: 20...Qxh2+ 21.Kxh2 Nxg3+ 22.Qh4/h7 RxQ+ 23.Kg1 Rh1#
 
   Nov-12-18 M de Jong vs V Akotchik, 2008 (replies)
 
Bubo bubo: 41.Rxe8+ Qxe8 42.e7+ Qf7 43.dxe5 and mate next move, but the simple 41.dxe5 also works (41...Qb7+ 42.Kg1 Qxc8 43.e7+ and mate next move), and so does the modest 41.Qxg6+ Kf8 42.Rxe8+ Qxe8 43.Qxe8+ Kxe8 44.dxe5.

Bubo bubo: Black wins a rook (and a pawn) with 29...Qxf3+: A) If White recaptures, he moves his queen into a pin, leaving the rook unguarded. Hence 30... Rxe2+ wins a rook - and subsequently the queen, because it shoos away the king: 31.K~ Bxf3. B) Fleeing with the king does not help either:

Bubo bubo: Hooray, it's October 24, and we have a very reputable <POTD> at last! RIP Georg Salwe - I wonder how good you could have been if you had learnt to play chess earlier in your life.
 
   Oct-24-18 Prince Andrey Dadian of Mingrelia
 
Bubo bubo: Hooray, it's October 24, and the most infamous villain in chess history is not <POTD> again - I consider this a good omen!
