Knight13: <hms123> What's your status? Over.

Knight13: <> Your example helped a lot. Thanks. Happy New Year!
   Jan-01-15 J Mason vs Winawer, 1878 (replies)
Knight13: 22... Rad8 was a very subtle, Anderssen-like move.
   Dec-31-14 Winawer vs H Gifford, 1878
Knight13: I prefer 10. Ra3 over 10. c3. 18. Be1 seems just as good as 18. Bf2. 22. Qf1 is more precise. White's 22. Raa2 was a little too presumptuous that Black will play 22... gxf3? the next move, which, fortunately for him, Black did. 23. Nd5 is slightly better than 23. Rxf3. Other ...
   Dec-29-14 Bird vs Winawer, 1878
Knight13: Black's 6... f6 was interesting. If White had responded with 7. Nh4, it would've been even more interesting. Instead of 13. Qg4 Kf7 14. Qf3, 13. Qh5+ g6 14. Qf3 seems more accurate. 24. a5 > 24. Rfe1. 37. Nc3 is more promising than 37. Rf1: 37... Rb2 38. Rb1; 37... f2 38. Rf1 ...
   Dec-28-14 Winawer vs Bird, 1878
Knight13: 5... h5?!: The game has barely started and Black was already deconstructing his king's potential safe haven to launch a premature attack. Following it up with 8... d5? was no good for His Highness either; 8... d6 is more advisable. 14... g4, with the threat of ... Qh4, seems ...
   Dec-27-14 Max Weiss vs Von Bardeleben, 1887
Knight13: <elohah: 15...-19... - 'And even today, many players show the Center a clean pair of heels' -Nimzovich (Praxis)> So in other words, Black launched an attacked without having first secured the center and thus failed. Attempting to "outrun" the center wasn't a good idea, was ...
   Dec-27-14 Von Gottschall vs Mackenzie, 1887
Knight13: 15. g4? reeked of overconfidence. But certainly not 30... c5!. <Calli: Which is classified as "believe it or not"? The original mistake or the correction :->> Why, the original mistake, of course. ;)
   Dec-27-14 Mackenzie vs Taubenhaus, 1887
Knight13: 15. Ne2 instead of text's 15. hxg5: Black's Knight has no safe place to run. Now what? Why did White play 15. hxg5--what did Black have up his sleeve (if any)? 17... Bb4 is a better alternative: 18. Bd2 (Re3 Bxg5) Nc4 19. Rb1 Nxb2! 20. Rxb2 Bxc3 wins a pawn; If 18. Qd3 then ...g6, ...
