   Dec-15-18 G Marco vs Showalter, 1900
KEG: Post II 19. f5! Marco's King-side assault begins. With tough defense, Black could no doubt survive. But Showlater was apparently clueless to the dangers he faced. 19.., b6 This weakening of Black's King-side looks bad, but this was not the reason for Showalter's quick demise. 20. ...
   Dec-13-18 J N Berger vs W Cohn, 1900
KEG: Post IV Oops: I had a White Rook on f4 in the diagram with which I ended my last post instead of a Black Rook. The actual position after 36...Rxf4 was: [DIAGRAM] In this position, Berger played: 37. RxB?? This blunder turned a win into a loss for Berger. The winning move was: 37. ...
   Dec-09-18 Halprin vs Von Popiel, 1900
KEG: Post IV IN the diagrammed position with which I ended my last post, Halprin played: 39. a3?! As a theoretical matter, the text probably does not ruin anything, but it does give Black some practical chances. Halprin could simply have played passively with something like 39. Kc2, ...
   Dec-07-18 Janowski vs F G Jacob, 1900
KEG: Post II Janowksi obviously had a won game after 19. Nxc5, but having a win doesn't always translate into victory. Nere, Jacob did nothing to make Janowski's task difficult: 19... Bc8 To offer any real resistance, he should have played 19...Bc6. 20. Rd6 20. B4 was also very strong for
   Dec-04-18 Pillsbury vs M Billecard, 1900
KEG: Post V If there was a way for Billecard to say the game from the diagrammed position with which I ended my last post, it lay in 42...g5+ (43. Kxg5 Rxe5+ 44. Kf4 Re7). But Billecard instead played: 42... Re8? Perhaps the worst move at Billecard's disposal. It gave Pillsbury control of ...
   Nov-29-18 Burn vs Schlechter, 1900
KEG: Post V After 37...d3, Burn could safely have resigned. 38. a4 This effort at counterplay was too late to change White's fate. 38... c3 "!"--Tournament Book. 40. Rxd3 c2 41. Rc3 c1(Q) 42. RxQ RxR This left: [DIAGRAM] All that remained was for Schlechter to pick off White's ...
   Nov-25-18 Von Gottschall vs H Wolf, 1900
KEG: Post III The balance of the game was a catastrophe for von Gottschall. 23. Rc1 He had to try 23. g3 or perhaps--in desperation--23. d4. 23... b4! The decisive breakthrough 24. axb4 axb4 25. Qg4? It is hard to blunder in a position this bad, but von Gottschall managed to do so. If
   Nov-24-18 Schlechter vs Von Bardeleben, 1900 (replies)
KEG: As user Lawrence pointed out over 15 years ago on this site, Bardeleben resigned because of illness. There was an irony in this result. Back in 1895 at the great Hastings Tournament, Bardeleben, who had toppled the mighty Lasker and drawn with Tarrasch, forfeited his 17th round game ...
   Nov-23-18 M Billecard vs Burn, 1900
KEG: Post VII The rest was easy: 79. Qc4+ This only hastened the end. Billecard might have hung on a little longer with 79. Qc6+, but this would not have altered the outcome. 79... Qd4 Of course! Billecard could safely have resigned. 80. Qc6+ Ke3 The d-pawn can not be stopped. 81. Qf3+
   Nov-19-18 F G Jacob vs Pillsbury, 1900
KEG: Post IV The conclusion of the game was not without interest. 32... c5! While the simple 32...Kd6 (or almost anything else) would also have won, the text is excellent. It allows Black to control b4 and d4, and gives White no serious chances. 33. Kc3 Jacob perhaps hoped by the text ...
