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.

   Dec-03-18 Lincoln Lucena
Marcelo Bruno: <GreenCastle>: the Lucena Position is named after the 15th century author, not after Lincoln Lucena (the first was Valencian, the other is Brazilian).
   Nov-30-18 Wolf Meyer Popert
Marcelo Bruno: Congratulations for providing this master's correct name! Even some modern books have this mistake as, for example, Juan Fernández-Rúa's "La edad de oro del ajedrez".
   Nov-16-18 Raoul van Ketel (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: He invited me to play two tournaments at his native town Leiden.
   Nov-15-18 Mecking vs J de Souza Mendes, 1965
Marcelo Bruno: At this event Souza Mendes was the only one that defeated Mecking and, perhaps surprisingly, got proudly the 2nd place.
   Oct-25-18 H Kennedy vs Mayet, 1851
Marcelo Bruno: A wonderful and exciting epic battle!
   Sep-11-18 Staunton vs Jaenisch, 1851
Marcelo Bruno: A very interesting example of winning in a opposing color Bishops.
   Aug-11-18 Georg Schnitzler
Marcelo Bruno: <Doctor D>: The game you mention I have it in Flavio de Carvalho Junior's "Iniciação ao Xadrez" (Initiation to Chess), that was originally published by Bestseller in 1968 and further by Summus in 1982. Probably he had an exemplar of one the books you inform.
   Aug-02-18 E Schallopp vs Paulsen, 1884 (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: In the 8th edition of the Handbuch, there are still the following moves: 47. … Rh4 48. Rb3 Rh1 49. Kg2 Re1 50. Kf2 Rc1 Kg2 Rc4 52. Ra3 Re4 53. Rh3 Re3 54. Rh4 Re2+ 55. Rf1 Rh2 56. Rh3 Rc2 57. Ra3 Rc5 58. Kf2 Rc4 59. Rh3 Remis (= Draw).
   Jul-25-18 Steinitz vs A Fritz, 1898
Marcelo Bruno: For me it is the announcement of the old lion's downfall, in this case, Steinitz. Fritz played the endgame as it would be done: congratulations for him!
   Jun-25-18 Von Popiel vs Tarrasch, 1896 (replies)
Marcelo Bruno: <keypusher> You are right, the only exception is that Tarrasch's opponent did not pin his Queen on a Bishop's diagonal.
