My primary interest in historical chess is the Cambridge Springs 1904 tournament. I have a non-commercial web site with lots of info. To find it, type the following words into Google: Cambridge Springs 1904 or click here: http://cs1904.com/ This link is new as of November 2014 and should be "permanent".

   Apr-30-17 Browne vs Miles, 1990
 
CambridgeSprings1904: This game is featured in Browne's book "The Stress of Chess". Black's 12th move and White's 13th move are missing from the text. In the introduction to the game, Browne mentions that Miles' style of playing off-beat openings actually helped Browne, as Browne had more ...

CambridgeSprings1904: Thanks to<suenteus po 147> for creating this collection and for his reference to my CS1904 web site above. As an update, I had to move the site so it now has its own "permanent" domain: http://cs1904.com/
 
   Apr-07-11 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
 
CambridgeSprings1904: This is a minor point (and I apologize if it has already been pointed out): The date in the game header says it was played on January 14, 1972; I believe the game was actually played on August 10-11, 1972.

CambridgeSprings1904: Silman uses this game in the 4th edition of How to Reassess Your Chess (pg. 399) to illustrate opening imbalances. It is amazing how, in chess, things can go wrong so quickly.
 
   Feb-26-11 T F Lawrence vs Chigorin, 1904
 
CambridgeSprings1904: The bulletin from Round 11 of the tournament says this about the game: "The game between Lawrence and Tschigorin was full of vicissitudes but eventually ended in a draw." The game score has two discrepancies compared to the moves listed here, but they appear to be typos

CambridgeSprings1904: For an example of one of Powers's chess columns, follow this link: http://news.google.com/newspapers?i... By the way, chess is alive and well in Milwaukee, with a very active youth chess scene. I'm sure Mr. Powers is smiling down on us from above.

CambridgeSprings1904: ICC members can view a nice video review of this game by GM Joel Benjamin. Some of White's checks were apparently a clock-management ploy, as there was a 30-second increment added after each move. White apparently missed a few wins, including 47.Qd7+. A very interesting

CambridgeSprings1904: Hello. Thank you for compiling the complete game collection for Cambridge Springs 1904 and for including a link to my web site. My internet provider recently changed the host for personal web pages so the URL has changed to: http://home.roadrunner.com/~etzel/c... I was ...

CambridgeSprings1904: I have an original newspaper clipping that includes this game. It makes reference to the mate announcement.
