   Jan-27-19 Alekhine vs Bogoljubov, 1922
Pawn and Two: In his book, "My Best Games of Chess 1908-1923", Alekhine stated that with his move 33.d5!, White secured a passed pawn, which would shortly cost Black a piece, and the remainder of the game would then be merely a question of technique. In the Hastings 1922 tournament book, ...
   Jan-23-19 Showalter vs E Delmar, 1889 (replies)
Pawn and Two: <zanzibar> We will have to thank <Straclonoor> for posting his analysis. It was the noticing of his post that led me to happen upon <offramp's> comment.
   Nov-12-18 Nimzowitsch vs Tarrasch, 1912
Pawn and Two: <sallyx> The tournament book, <II. Internationales Schachturnier zu San Sebastian 1912>, by Mieses & Lewitt, Leipzig 1920, also shows the opening move order for this game as: 1.e4 c5 2.c3 e6 3.d4 d5 4.e5 Nc6.
   May-19-18 Leonhardt vs Teichmann, 1905 (replies)
Pawn and Two: <zanzibar> Jimmy Adam's tournament book for Ostend 1905, gives White's 14th move, as 14.Qf3. Houdini 3 prefers the same continuation for White after either 14.Qe2 or 14.Qf3, although it slightly prefers 14.Nxd6 or 14.Re1 to either of the queen moves: (-1.16) (25 ply) ...
   Mar-14-18 Von Gottschall vs Tarrasch, 1888 (replies)
Pawn and Two: At move 76, Houdini 3 preferred, with some advantage for White: (.47) (32 ply) 76.Qb1! Qa1 77.Kf2 Qxb1 78.Nxb1 Ra1 79.Rb2 a6; or (.66) (30 ply) 76...Rb6 77.Qb2 Qa5 78.Kf2 b4 79.cxb4 Rxb4. After 76.Nb1? Qb3 77.Qc1, Black obtained the advantage: (-.70) (32 ply) 77...Ra2 78.Rxa2 ...
   Mar-07-18 Botvinnik vs Pachman, 1947 (replies)
Pawn and Two: <morfishine> At the time of my original comment, it seems that I was the one who was confused. Pachman's diagram after 16...Qf6, and his analysis at move 17, both clearly support that White's move was 16.Rdg1, and not 16.Rhg1. My comments in the 1st and 3rd paragraphs of ...
   Feb-22-18 Fischer vs Smyslov, 1965 (replies)
Pawn and Two: This game was included in Frank Brady's book, 'Profile of a Prodigy'. Brady tells of this game being adjourned in the evening, and the next morning a telephone call was received from Havana. Symslov was resigning, but he wanted to personally congratulate Fischer over the phone.
   Feb-09-18 G Marco vs Janowski, 1896
Pawn and Two: <Honza Cervenka & Straclonoor> I will submit a request for the move correction, 60...Rd3.
   Jan-27-18 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Pawn and Two: <zanzibar & MissScarlett> Regarding the dates for G13-15 in the Marshall - Johnston 1899-1900 match, John Hilbert in 'Young Marshall', gives January 21, 1900, as the game playing date for G15, but Hilbert did not indicate his source for that date. Hilbert provided the ...
   Nov-11-17 Botvinnik vs Vidmar, 1946 (replies)
Pawn and Two: The position before 31.b5!, was our daily puzzle position last Sunday. [DIAGRAM] The tournament book, <Groningen International Chess Tournament, 1946>, with notes from various contemporary sources, noted 31.b5! was the beginning of a fine combination, a beautiful ...
