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.

   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.
   Jun-25-18 Jouy vs La Bourdonnais, 1838
Marcelo Bruno: A remarkable masterpiece by De La Bourdonnais, one of my favorite chess masters!
   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).
   Jun-10-18 K Behting vs Nimzowitsch, 1912
Marcelo Bruno: About the game, I have the comments from the Rigaer Tageblatt translated to French in Henri Delaire's L'échecs modernes.
   May-09-18 J Schulten vs Horwitz, 1846
Marcelo Bruno: <dzechiel:> It is in fact an anticipation of the famous Réti-Tartakower, Vienna 1910: (there is also a game between Distl and Rossipal with the same theme: I have these names in Idel Becker's "Manual de Xadrez"). The consideration as anticipation is also quoted by Juan ...
   Apr-06-18 G W Medley vs Mongredien, 1850
Marcelo Bruno: Here is the reason why White resigned: Black mates beginning with 57.… Rc1+, that continues with 58.Bf1 Rxf1+ 59.Kh2 Bc7 60.Re5 Bxe5+ 61.Kh3 Rh1#. A hard-fought game by Mongredien.
