   Jan-19-18 Adolf Georg Olland (replies)
Retireborn: <z> Looks as if <Thomas> hasn't posted on here for 2 years now.
   Jan-18-18 Reti vs Euwe, 1920 (replies)
Retireborn: <sneaky pete> Many thanks again. I've been able to adjust my Chessbase data accordingly.
   Jan-18-18 Bang
Retireborn: <z> My guess is that Euwe hadn't seen 26.Qe5! at all (or not until it was too late) expecting 26.Bxc5 with equality. It's also possible that he missed White's 23rd, distracted by 23.Ra1 Qxa1! 24.Bxa1 Rxa1+ 25.Bf1 Bh3 26.Rb1 Rxb1 27.Qxb1 Ba3! which does indeed simplify ...
   Jan-18-18 Geza Maroczy / Savielly Tartakower (replies)
Retireborn: <CHC>, <Stonehenge> Many thanks to both. Yes, should have guessed that git means jet.
   Jan-17-18 Amsterdam (1920)
Retireborn: <z> The Bird probably wouldn't be thought of as hypermodern back in the 20s, as it occupies the centre with a pawn. Hypermodern pretty much meant flank openings for White and new, un-Tarrasch like defences (Alekhine, Gruenfeld etc) for Black. I agree that it's slightly odd ...
   Jan-16-18 Doll
Retireborn: <z> Thanks for that. She's very restrained in that clip; I think I might have poked him with that knife a couple of times myself :)
   Jan-16-18 Euwe - Alekhine World Championship Rematch (1937) (replies)
Retireborn: <Offramp> etc = Karpov and Anand, judging by his earlier list.
   Jan-16-18 Spassky vs A Pomar Salamanca, 1967 (replies)
Retireborn: <Dionysius1> Don't know about that, but in his book Korchnoi acknowledged that Spassky's middle game superiority was a decisive factor in their 1968 match.
   Jan-14-18 L Steiner vs Kashdan, 1933
Retireborn: Lovely story from <ToTheDeath>, but Lajos was surely right that the game was drawn. This could be achieved with 61.Kd2 Ng4 62.Ne7 Nxh2 63.Ke1 Ng4 64.h5. Lajos probably assumed that the position after both sides queen was also equal, not noticing that with 65...Nf3+ his king
   Jan-10-18 Pachman vs Szabo, 1947
Retireborn: <Sourav> I'm sorry you've had to wait nearly four years for a reply. I would say that 9...f5 is not such a bad move in itself, but it starts a plan (...Rf6-h6, ...Ng5-h3) which leaves Black overstretched, with no real dynamic play on the K-side and difficulty in defending ...
