Knight13: <chessgames.com> I got it. Please do so. Thanks! I will follow your recommendation. :-)

Knight13: <Good catch, badMojo. It's got to be a Turtles reference. They were all named for Renaissance painters: Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Rafael. That's more obscure than most GOTD titles, but an occasional obscurity is healthy.> Not all of them were just painters. For ...

Knight13: <Wilhelm Steinitz, Henry Edward Bird & Joseph Henry Blackburne incidently describe a story of 6 years previous where the latter allegedly punched & threw the former out of a Paris tournament window after the former spat on the latter.> Who is "former" referring to, and who is

Knight13: Did they try to create a Version X of "Immortal Game" or something?

Knight13: <Shams> Understood. Thanks, again! :)
 
   Feb-07-12 T Tabatadze vs V Vepkhvishvili, 1991

Knight13: This is the last game of the Paris match between these players. I am a little disappointed to see that Saint Amant didn't play with more energy and vigor; instead, he played like someone with a resigned mentality. He was losing -10, +6, = 4 at this point and probably decided that ...

Knight13: <6... Be7 is better. ... Qa5+ is a waste.> Actually, 6... Be7 7. Qh5+ g6 8. Qh4 Bxg5 9. Nxg5 followed by Qh6 and Black is worse.

Knight13: 11. h3 wouldn't have hurt, either. It was the right time to move that pawn in order to alleviate White of the pressure. If 11... Bh5 then 12. g4 Bg6 13. Bxg6 and White does not need to fear the weakened king.
