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 from the 19th century. I now spend most of my time working on games collections.

   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 ...

   Apr-29-17 Yates vs Maroczy, 1930
Chessical: Maroczy equalises quickly with Black. If <24...Qd4> 25. Rac1 Qa7 26. Be4 Qxc7 27. Rxc7 Rxb2 28. Bd3; which is slightly better for Black. If <27...Rxf2> 28. Kxf2 Qd4+ 29. Kg2 Bd5+ 30. Kh3 =
   Apr-29-17 Steinitz vs D M Martinez, 1882 (replies)
Chessical: <chessgame901> <69...Kb4> cannot avoid an inevitable loss for Black. 69. g8=Q Kb4 70. Ke4 a5 71. Kd4 a4 72. Qc4+ Ka5 73. Kc5 a2 74. Qb5 mate

   Apr-23-17 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Chessical: Could not So's amanuensis clarify the issues flagged up but still unresolved in his biography? In the meantime: "<> Is it really 2013? (Some sources indicate 2012.) A citation is needed. Also, when did this period end? As it reads, one could easily assume ...
