   Retireborn has kibitzed 1827 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-20-18 J Mieses vs Marshall, 1914 (replies)
Retireborn: Geoff, delighted that somebody actually reads my posts! I think the win after 26...cxd6 may be fairly straightforward; Black is going to play ...h5, ...hxg4, then ...g6 and ...f5. Eventually a black pawn should reach f4, removing the knight which is preventing mate. White can ...

Retireborn: <z> Spend more time perusing crumbly old chess books, and you too will instantly comprehend such allusions :)
   Jun-19-18 Bang (replies)
Retireborn: LOL - I'm actually working through the quadcopter now, but am still some way short of round 11! I think one needs to be a GM to calculate those variations you give. On the other hand, 15.Rad1 might well be played on general principles. It could serve as an example of the Seirawan
   Jun-18-18 Reti vs Bogoljubov, 1919
Retireborn: Bogo's notes in TfS are somewhat superficial. Not only does he miss 21.Ne4! (as set out in <Bang>) but he gives up his queen without comment. Presumably he considered himself to be already lost, but with 26...Qd8! (already mentioned by <slapwa>) he could have saved ...

Retireborn: More like 70, I should think. Around the same age as Tal and Korchnoi (yes, he knew them too.)
   Jun-15-18 Richard Reti (replies)
Retireborn: <sneaky pete> Heh. I'd love to see just how big your library is! If the dates aren't in TfS then I can only suppose Gillam has got hold of a local bulletin or schedule.
   Jun-15-18 J Shahade vs Wang Pin, 2002 (replies)
Retireborn: Lord Byron got there first (we'll go no more a-roving by the light of the moon.)
   Jun-14-18 Lasker vs Maroczy, 1902
Retireborn: Anyway, it's a Rice gambit. Possibly good old Ricey flashed the cash, but I would not regard this as a genuine game in the competitive sense.
   Jun-13-18 Englander
Retireborn: <mifralu> Looks like a typical Jewish surname, but I wonder if his ancestors were literally from England, or if there's a town or place on the Continent called that?
   Jun-10-18 Hastings (1895) (replies)
Retireborn: One of Pillsbury's Whites was his walk-over against von Bardeleben; possibly he'd have preferred to use up a Black in that way.
