   Nov-19-17 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Retireborn: <Tab> Many thanks - that does seem to suggest there should be a space. Regarding de/De it looks as if it gets capitalised when referring by surname only, perhaps more for consistency than correctness. Chessbase playerbase recognises both De Firmian and de Firmian (and does ...
   Nov-16-17 Portisch vs Huebner, 1980 (replies)
Retireborn: It'll be in Informator, if you have the relevant volume, otherwise you can find this info on the olimpbase site.
   Nov-14-17 Flohr vs Capablanca, 1936
Retireborn: The tournament book gives 37...Re4 as played, while another source (Soloviev/Chess Stars) give 37...Rd4 as here and even elaborate variations with Ke3 which are not possible with the rook on e4. The tournament book says the last 15 moves were bashed out's of no real
   Nov-12-17 Karpov vs Larsen, 1979 (replies)
Retireborn: In a similar tournament to Montreal (Santa Monica 1966) Larsen lost to tail-enders Donner and Ivkov, yet also scored two spectacular wins against then-World champion Petrosian. It's never a surprise to me when a World Champion loses to another top player.

Retireborn: <simaginfan> Many thanks, interesting games.
   Nov-12-17 Botvinnik vs J Rabinovich, 1926
Retireborn: <hemy> That's very generous of you, many thanks....I have owned all three of those books, though I have yet to work through the Tal one.
   Nov-12-17 Superstars Hotel Bali (2002)
Retireborn: A rapid tournament, according to Rowson in NiC 2005/6.
   Nov-11-17 Tal vs Timman, 1988
Retireborn: That photo's been posted on here before somewhere (not sure where) - it's a great picture though, worth seeing twice!
   Nov-09-17 S D Sigfusson vs de Firmian, 2005
Retireborn: In NiC 2005/6, De Firmian gives 22...Qxd5 23.Rxg7+ Kh8 24.Nf6, but Houdini points out that 24...Qd3! wins for Black then. Houdini suggests 22...Qxd5 23.Rxg7+ Kh8 24.Qg3 Qd3 25.bxc3 Bh4 26.Qxh4 Qxe3+ 27.Kh1 Qh3 28.h3 Rg8 29.Rfxf7 Rxg7 30.Rxg7 Bc6 31.c4 keeps White's advantage to a
