I am an UK chess player who plays OTB and correspondence. I particularly appreciate the games of Tal, Alekhine, Tarrasch and Capablanca.

I am particularly interested in the history of chess since the 19th century. I now spend most of my time working on games collections.

Chessical: Interview with Von Bardeleben in 1895. The source is "The Sketch" newspaper of Wednesday 14th August 1895: "A CHESS CHAMPION. The chess-player is not particularly familiar to the public except on such rare occasions as the tournament which is now being played at Hastings, in which

Chessical: <Refutor> Your thirteen year old question about Beniamino Vergani may have finally been answered!
   Jul-03-17 Beniamino Vergani
Chessical: <"His participation in that tournament provoked, in Italy, a long controversy."> "In the August-September issue of the "Nuova Rivista degli Schacchi" , the editor, Sig. Salvioli, has a long and rather caustic article, on the participation of Sig. Vergani in the Hastings ...

Chessical: <ChessHigherCat> Let us see: <21... Qxa2 22. Qd6+ Kd8 23. Nc5> and now <23...Qxc2> [DIAGRAM] which unfortunately allows an immediate: <24.Nxe6> Mate.

   May-27-17 J Rukavina vs M Cuellar Gacharna, 1973

   May-13-17 A Rabinovich vs Rotlewi, 1911
Chessical: [DIAGRAM] <21. hxg4?!>, instead <21. Nb5> seems better: <21...Nf3+> 22. Qxf3 gxf3 23. Nxc7 Bxc7 24. Kf2 Rabinovich underestimated the strength of the sacrifice on <e3>.
   May-06-17 J Perlis vs Teichmann, 1909
Chessical: [DIAGRAM] I believe that Teichmann missed a drawing line. By playing: <56... g4+!> he should have been able to hold the game: <57. Ke2> Bd5; and now, <58. Rxd6+> Ke5 59. Rh6 gxh3 60. gxh3 Bxb3 61. Bd3 (not 61. Rxh5?? Bd1+!) 61...Rxa4 62. Rxh5 <58. Ke3> Ke5 ...
