   Jul-18-17 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1963
Retireborn: <peteg000> Keeping the rook on f8 and aiming for ...f5 is a playable plan, I should think, although it might lead to a rather equal position.
   Jul-16-17 Bang (replies)
Retireborn: My immediate thought was Nxd5 and then Bc7, but it doesn't work because Black just plays ...Qxd5. I suspect the answer is immediate Bc7, but I can't calculate it or not at this time of night anyway.
   Jul-14-17 Benko vs Tartakower, 1948 (replies)
Retireborn: <ChessHigherCat> Your variation is correct. After 35.Ng2 Bxf3 White can hold off the mate with 36.Qc8+ Ne8 37.Qh3 but then 37...Qxb2 and more white pawns will fall.
   Jul-10-17 Martin Johansson Sr
Retireborn: <Tabanus> Thanks for that link, some interesting stuff on there. Wish I could be more help, but good luck with sorting out the Martins.

Retireborn: <z> I do see it's a problem, if you are working with a database you obviously want to use the single (correct) name for an individual throughout, and if he changes the spelling on his FIDE card then where are you? Using CB I use whatever name they have in the Playerbase, ...

Retireborn: <posoo> You're here again, are you. Modified rapture!
   Jul-05-17 Dlugy vs Browne, 1984
Retireborn: <stonehenge> Many thanks.
   Jul-05-17 Larry Evans vs Lombardy, 1971
Retireborn: <PB> Many thanks for your efforts. A Tale of Two Larrys? It was the best of moves, it was the worst of moves....
   Jul-02-17 A Zaitsev vs Wade, 1971
Retireborn: Score here matches CB Big 2002, while Informator ends the game after 70...Kf8, but I think it likely that Zaitsev did plug away in a drawn pawn endgame for a while. With 31.g4! Zaitsev establishes his advantage, but he fails to follow up with 32.Rg1! Bf6 33.Bxf6 gxf6 34.gxf5 exf5

Retireborn: Careful now. Down with this sort of thing!
