   Jun-20-18 J N Berger vs Janowski, 1900
KEG: A long and sometimes tedious game. Attack and defense balanced out in a well-played middle-game until a dead-drawn Rook and pawn endgame was reached. But Janowski refused to accept the obvious, and dragged on play for seemingly no reason. Then, in a wild attempt to make something out of
   Jun-17-18 Lasker vs Chigorin, 1900
KEG: Post III In the last diagrammed position in my prior post, the final crisis of the game was reached. Tchigorin was up to the task with the lovely: 20... c5! With Tchigorin's two Bishops and Lasker's many pawn weaknesses, Tchigorin has clearly obtained the best of the struggle. For ...
   Jun-17-18 J Mieses vs J Mason, 1900
KEG: Post V Welcome Pac-Man fans to the account of how Mieses systematically ate up Mason's pawns until the latter resigned: 30. Bbh2 Rh6 31. Be5+ Kd7 32. Rxh5 Had enough yet? Mason hadn't: [DIAGRAM] 32... Rg6 Maybe he should have slowed down the Mieses steamroller with 32...RxR, ...
   Jun-17-18 Chigorin vs Lasker, 1900
KEG: <Sally Simpson> Always good to hear from you. As always, thank you for your comments. I have been writing "Tchigorin" for well over half a century and am too old to change my ways. Since this is a transliteration from the Cyrillic, I reckon that either spelling in English is OK. I
   Jun-15-18 J Mason vs J Mieses, 1900
KEG: Post IV After 32...fxe5 play continued: 33. g4 Mason, faced with four passed Black pawns, had two plausible plans: (a) a pawn advance on the King-side, or attack the passed a-pawn and try to hold off Black's d and e pawns with his Bishop. Mason opted to try a little of both. 33... ...
   Jun-12-18 M M Sterling vs Schlechter, 1900
KEG: As pointed out nearly ten years ago on this site by Autoreparaturwerkbau, this miniature was lost by Sterling when he hung a piece on move 13. Not much of interest here 1. e4 e5 2. Nc3 The Vienna Game was used as a weapon at Paris 1900, most notably by Mieses. 2... Nf6 3. Bc4 Nc6
   Jun-12-18 Pillsbury vs L Rosen, 1900
KEG: Post III Although Pillsbury had a won game after 27...Qc7, his play from here--as throughout the game--remained spotty and uncharacteristically careless. As will be seen, he gave Rosen chances to get back into the game; chances which Rosen did not exploit on his way to defeat. 28. Qf4
   Jun-10-18 Maroczy vs Marshall, 1900
KEG: Post VI Marshall was lost, but still had one trick up his sleeve. 51. Bf6+ Ke8! Walking into a mating net--for a very good reason that will soon become apparent. 52. Kg6 Rca8 53. Rb7 Ra1 Seemingly suicidal (53...R2a7 was the only objective way to prolong the game) but the text is ...
   Jun-09-18 G Marco vs J Mortimer, 1900
KEG: <Sally Simpson> You have whetted my appetite for Munich 1900, and I will indeed take that tournament on next.
   Jun-06-18 M Brody vs Didier, 1900
KEG: Post III 28. Qg3 Rfxh2+ 29. QxR The position was now: [DIAGRAM] This is shaping up to be an ending with Didier's Queen against Brody's Rook and two Knights. But locking up White's King is the key. Didier missed the point and played: 29... Qf3+ ? Now the White King gets loose and ...
