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.

   Aug-07-16 Tarrasch vs Chigorin, 1893
Chessical: THE CHESS MATCH AT ST. PETERSBURG. It is no exaggeration to say that the match between Tarrasch and Tschigorin is one of the most interesting chess events of modern times. The encounter began on Sunday, when Dr. Tarrasch opened with the much hackneyed Ruy Lopez. The Russian ...
   Jul-31-16 Z Rutka vs Karpov, 1967
Chessical: Rutka (probably Zdenek Rutka) was in last place coming into the final round. He therefore throws all he has at Karpov, who was playing in his first international tournament. Rutka does not castle, but instead launches a "do or die" pawn storm on the K-side. Karpov made a slip ...

Chessical: <20.Nxd5?> loses the exchange in a simple fashion. Chigorin had a reputation for making unforced blunders despite his great chess strength. <20.R(b)e1)> =
   Jul-03-16 Chigorin vs Gunsberg, 1890
Chessical: Gunsberg lost the first game of the match as Black due to a simple blunder. He had almost equalised against Chigorin's Ponziani Opening but overlooked a very simple tactic. Instead of <21...g6!>, Gunsberg played <21...Nd5> [DIAGRAM] oblivious to <22.Qxf8!>.
   Jun-24-16 Ljubojevic vs Smyslov, 1973 (replies)

   Jun-24-16 I A Horowitz vs Kashdan, 1938
Chessical: [DIAGRAM] Kasdan blundered with <79...Rc1?> instead of Ra8 and now Horowitz could have played <80. a7!> winning.
