Chessical: Game Collection: Hastings 1948/1949 - A prize of £250 in 1948 is £8,000/$12,900 (2014), a very commendable effort considering that Britain was near bankrupt after the war. The rationing of foodstuffs was still in force at the time. Bread only came off the ration in July 1948 and ...

Chessical: <WCC> Your questions and my responses: 1 Check "champions'" - <This should read "Champion's" as it refers only to Karpov. I mistyped the apostrophe>. 2 Kasparov had vociferously objected to FIDE’s first choice of Svetozar Gligoric and Anton Kinzel...Did Kasparov mean ...

Chessical: <Runemaster> Perhaps <33...Nxe5> is okay for Black? For example, [DIAGRAM] <33... Bxe5> 34. dxe5 Nc5 35. Bf1 Nb3 36. Bb2 Na4; and Black seems to be holding on.
