I've been on the lookout for bits of chess information ever since I started collecting literature on the game back in 1972. Yes, the Fischer-Spassky match is what started it all! At any rate, I can see that I've come to the right place, both for giving and for receiving chess information online.

   Jul-09-18 Berthold Englisch
Infohunter: <gars> The Fred Reinfeld book I read put it this way, if I recall correctly: "Just as MacBeth had to murder, Englisch had to draw."
   Mar-05-18 Von Gottschall vs Tarrasch, 1888 (replies)
Infohunter: <offramp> I switched to pgn4web, for the purposes of this game only, and got the 100 moves.
   Feb-22-18 D Wagner vs P Nikolic, 2017 (replies)
Infohunter: White makes nine of his first eleven moves with Pawns. Not your usual opening method, but clearly it worked.
   Jan-09-18 Leonhardt vs F Englund, 1908 (replies)
Infohunter: This game was replayed in T Baron vs C Marcelin, 2013 , differing only at the very last move, which difference is inconsequential.
   Jan-09-18 T Baron vs C Marcelin, 2013
Infohunter: This is the same game as Leonhardt vs F Englund, 1908 until the very last move--which difference is inconsequential.
   Nov-27-17 R Slade vs D Hooper, 1947 (replies)
Infohunter: The finish is simple but elegant.
   Sep-08-17 D Sorm vs A Zienkiewicz, 2007 (replies)
Infohunter: <Phony Benoni: Perfect? Not by a long shot. white's first move disqualifies the game immediately.> So you and I agree with Paul Morphy and Bobby Fischer. Now if only that alone were enough to put us in their class!
   Sep-04-17 Janowski vs E Tennenwurzel, 1916 (replies)
Infohunter: So I'm not the only one who saw the "other" solution. That's good to know.
   Aug-14-17 N Zwirs vs P V Nandhidhaa, 2016 (replies)
Infohunter: <Cheapo by the Dozen: Nxf7 is better than Ng6, since it obviates the defense ... f6, which slows things down quite a bit. White surely wins either way, of course.> Maybe I'm missing something, but it seems to me that if Black answers 21.Ng6 with 21...f6 there then follows ...
   Aug-12-17 Danielle Zimrin vs Natasha Isabel Van Niekerk, 2016 (replies)
Infohunter: Hard to believe that White played 6.Nxf6+??? instead of 6.Nd6#! Why else should White want to play 5.Qe2--other than the fact of setting up the mate-on-the-move trap it really isn't such a hot choice.
