Marcelo Bruno
Member since Jun-25-06
I live in Brasília, Brazil's federative capital, where I work at a public school. Music and chess are some of my greatest loves, although I like each field of the knowledge. My interest is to get more and more old chess games (I mean old until the earliest beginning of the 20th cenury); I use to play in the same style of the players from this period and consider that their games are my main source of inspiration. I also have experience on giving chess classes at schools in Brasília. Full Member

   Jun-10-18 de Riviere vs Anderssen, 1862
Marcelo Bruno: In Henri Delaire's "L'échecs modernes" the conclusion is after White's 36th move: 36. … ef3 37. Nxd2 f2 38. Kf1 Bg3 (according to Taubenhaus, whose comments are added).

   Apr-06-18 G W Medley vs Mongredien, 1850

   Sep-16-17 Pillsbury vs Gunsberg, 1895 (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: <PaulLovric> Perhaps he would like to get ready quickly for the endgame and activating directly his King and other pieces: for me it seems an ambitious, optimistic and ultradynamic forces coordination.
   Sep-16-17 Steinitz vs Tarrasch, 1895
Marcelo Bruno: <ksadler> Another important example with the same opening and the same … Bb4 line at the same tournament was Albin's victory over Janowski.

   Aug-17-17 Bernhard Richter (replies)

   Aug-13-17 Teichmann vs Gunsberg, 1895
Marcelo Bruno: Beautiful knight ending.
