   Oct-16-18 Halprin vs Showalter, 1900
KEG: The one interesting point in this otherwise forgettable game is the combination missed by Halprin on move 20. After his poor 18. Ndf5, Halprin was in trouble. But Showalter's careless 19...Qc7 gave Halprin a chance for a pretty saving combination. When he missed this chance, he was ...
   Oct-14-18 Janowski vs W Cohn, 1900
KEG: Post IV Once again my closing diagram in my last post was flawed. I showed the position after 29...Rdd7 rather than after 30. Ba5! (Maybe I need to stop posting in the middle of the night!). Perhaps depressed by the clogged arrangement of his pieces, Cohn's resistance from here to the ...
   Oct-11-18 Pillsbury vs Von Popiel, 1900
KEG: Post VI Oops. My last diagram was flawed. The position after 56...KxQ was: [DIAGRAM] The winning procedure here is not all that difficult, but as always it is instructive to watch Pillsbury in the endgame. 57. Bc8 b6 58. Bb7 The position was now: [DIAGRAM] von Popiel here played: ...
   Oct-09-18 Von Bardeleben vs Showalter, 1900
KEG: <offramp>Sorry to have misunderstood your comment. I agree that 12. h3 and not 12. a3 must have been played. Thank you for your clarification.
   Oct-07-18 Burn vs F G Jacob, 1900
KEG: Post II Jacob had played poorly through the point of the last diagrammed position in my last post (among other things he was down a pawn). He lost any even fighting chance he may still have had with his next move: 15... Re8? 15...Ne6 or 15...Ng4 would have given him a highly difficult
   Oct-03-18 Von Bardeleben vs M Billecard, 1900
KEG: Post V Bardeleben can almost certainly win a pawn here, but with best play the position should reduce to King, Rook and b-pawn against King and Rook. Black can hold these endings by making sure that in the critical resulting positions his King is not cut off. Billecard forgot this ...
   Sep-30-18 G Marco vs H Wolf, 1900
KEG: Post III 20. Rad1 c5 21. Rd2 21. Rd5 was more forceful and might have wrapped matters up faster. 21... Re8 22. Rfd1 Nf6 22...Nf8 was better if Wolf wanted to prolong the game. 23. h3! 23. Rd8 was also good, but it is always sensible in a winning position to eliminate any hint of
   Sep-29-18 M Billecard vs Schlechter, 1900
KEG: Post IV After 33. RxR, Schlechter was in control and polished off the game nicely: 33... Rc2! This move completely paralyzes the White forces, allowing the Black King to pick off the undefended pawn on e5 at his leisure. The position is worth another diagram: [DIAGRAM] 34. Kf1 ...
   Sep-26-18 F G Jacob vs Von Bardeleben, 1900
KEG: Jacob and Bardeleben were tied for last place at Munich 1900, both with scores of 0-4. It appeared for a short while as if Bardeleben was getting the better of the game until he blundered away his Queen on move 15. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6 Proposing they play a Petroff's Defense. 3. Nc3
   Sep-25-18 Von Popiel vs Burn, 1900
KEG: Post VI After a long hard battle, von Popiel committed an unfathomable blunder in the diagrammed position with which I ended my last post by playing: 59. gxh6?? This unleashed the g7 Black Rook that had been merely a defensive fixture and gave Burn a crushing attack. von Popiel had to
