Call Me TC: <Without Assange & Manning we wouldn't have evidence of the lies the US has been feeding the world.> So you never posted anything critical about America before Wikileaks published the cables? But help me out here: what do you consider to be the most substantively damaging ...
 
   Jul-01-12 Capablanca vs G H Wolbrecht, 1909 (replies)
 
Call Me TC: Wolbrecht and, presumably, Capa missed the cute defence 29...Re1+ 30.Kf2 Rh1 which should be drawn. 29.Rxh7 Qxh7 30.Rxh7 Kxh7 31.Qc7+ Ne7 32.Nb5/d5 was the straightforward winning method. Wolbrecht missed his own winning chance when 23...Nc6 allows him to beat off the attack, ...
 
   Jul-01-12 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1974 (replies)
 
Call Me TC: This game is also significant because it's the first time that Kasparov crosses Karpov's path, and it's a portent of things to come: <And I was fortunate enough to see the 21st game live: I was taken to it by my trainer Alexander Nikitin. For the first time in my life I ...

   Jun-24-12 Capablanca vs J C Rosenthal, 1909 (replies)
 
Call Me TC: <At this time Capablanca played a number of ten-seconds-a-move matches. They were played for stakes, to be paid to the first player to score five wins, draws not counting. He won them all: v. L.R. Eisenberg 5+ 2-; v. C. Jaffe 5+ 0-; v. A. Marder 5+ 2-; and v. J.C. Rosenthal 5+
 
   Jun-23-12 Anand - Gelfand World Championship Match (2012) (replies)
 
Call Me TC: OK, <cg.com>'s most tedious poster, then. Same difference.
 
   Jun-23-12 Bogoljubov vs Alekhine, 1934 (replies)
 
Call Me TC: <Anybody willing to look up what Skinner and Verhoven say about it?> They give Alekhine's comments to the game which appeared in <Tijdschrift van den Nederlandsch-Indischen Schaakbond>. According to the score the game ended with 65.Rc8+: <Here I offered a draw, ...
 
   Jun-22-12 Robert James Fischer (replies)
 
Call Me TC: <Which ones specifically??> Game 6, 1984-85; Kasparov vs Karpov, 1984 Game 9, 1984-85; Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984 See: http://www.chesscafe.com/text/chess... Game 24, 1984-85; Kasparov vs Karpov, 1984 Those are the ones that come immediately to mind but I think there are ...
 
   Jun-22-12 Ratmir Kholmov (replies)
 
Call Me TC: <In the same book Kholmov also says that...> he played a four game training match against Bronstein prior to his 1951 WC match with Botvinnik and that he scored +1 =3 but the moves of these games are lost. The <cg.com> DB has Kholmov with a positive score (+4 -2) ...

Call Me TC: <Somewhere I have a .pgn of the last games of all the world champions...> Why?
