   Aug-20-18 Showalter vs Burn, 1900
 
KEG: <Sally Simpson> Computers have not to my knowledge yet reached the point at which they can share the enthusiasm many of us have for chess. For some of us, chess is not just a game but an art. Watching combinations or strategic plans unfold can be (almost) as exhilarating as Bach, ...
 
   Aug-20-18 W Cohn vs Von Bardeleben, 1900
 
KEG: Post III After Cohn's 21. d4!, the position was: [DIAGRAM] Bardeleben is up a piece, but his position is under siege. Can he hold the position? We will never find out from this game, before what followed was a comedy of errors. In fairness to the players, the position is very ...
 
   Aug-19-18 Burn vs Maroczy, 1900
 
KEG: Sad to say, I erred again in my last post. I gave the position to a grandmaster who immediately showed me the error of my ways. White is indeed lost after 100. Kd2?, but not for the reason I originally said. The position after 100. Kd2? was: [DIAGRAM] Maroczy can indeed win (as I had ...
 
   Aug-17-18 Maroczy vs Pillsbury, 1900
 
KEG: Post III Maroczy's method of holding the game after 36...Bb3 was as counter-intuitive as it was effective. 37. Ba1! As will be seen, Maroczy had calculated that he could handle Pillsbury's threats by keeping his Bishop on the a1..h8 diagonal. 37... bax3 Pipllsbury has now "won" a ...
 
   Aug-14-18 Von Gottschall vs Janowski, 1900
 
KEG: Post III After 27...Bd7, the game went downhill for Gottschall very quickly. 28. exf5? 28. g3 was the only real chance at resistance. 28... gxf5 29. Rg3? Immediately fatal. If Gottschall watned to play on for even a little while, he had to defend his h4 pawn with 29. g3. The ...
 
   Aug-12-18 G Marco vs Halprin, 1900
 
KEG: Post IV From the diagrammed position with which I ended my last post, Marco crushed Halprin: 32. hxg5 Opening the h-file so that his Rook could invade, 32... hxg5 33. e5 "!"--Tournament Book. Marco now had a myriad of threats: [DIAGRAM] 33... Ke7 Long overdue, but here Halprin ...
 
   Aug-11-18 H Wolf vs F G Jacob, 1900
 
KEG: Post III in the diagrammed position with which I ended my last post on this game, Wolf played: 26. Qh4! This excellent move, as I will attempt to show, by combining attack with defense against Rf2+, is absolutely crushing. Before analyzing the consequences of 26. Qh4!, however, we ...
 
   Aug-05-18 Halprin vs J N Berger, 1900
 
KEG: Post II (A) I accidentally posted my last message before it was complete. I intended to point out that 28. Qf3 would be a faster finish. But the text also works. The final position was: [DIAGRAM] Berger's resignation here was fully warranted. If 28...QxR 29. RxQ+ KxR 30. Qc4 leaves ...
 
   Aug-04-18 Janowski vs G Marco, 1900
 
KEG: Post IV What remains is a chance to watch Marco's endgame prowess in action. While no one would confuse his endgame strength with that of Lasker, or Pillsbury--let alone that of later endgame genius' such as Capablanca, Rubinstein, or Carlsen--he was more than up to the task at hand ...
 
   Jul-30-18 Pillsbury vs Von Gottschall, 1900
 
KEG: Post II Facing trouble if he tried to regain the lost pawn, von Gottschall instead tried for counter-play with: 15... Qc6 The Tournament Book award this a "!" It certainly creates complications. Another possibility was 15...Qd3?! In any case, Black cannot afford to sit back and let ...
