   Jul-12-18 K Richter vs Alekhine, 1941
 
Scuvy: <whiteshark> Thanks for the insight. Since I am not German, I was not aware of that. <MissScarlett> Brinckmann included 3 of Richter's losses in his book (to Engels, Alekhine and Stoltz) because Richter thought they were his most beautiful lost games. It says a lot for ...

Scuvy: I had the privilege of playing Christiansen in a 1980 simultaneous display at Eugene, Ore. during the Church's tour. After I lost, Larry graciously went over our game and showed me a couple of chances I missed. Happy Birthday to a gentleman of Chess!
 
   Jun-08-18 Samuel Shankland (replies)
 
Scuvy: Hopefully, Shankland as current US champion, will be accorded the privilege of 1st board on the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team. I realize he is generally not considered a world-class grandmaster as Caruana, So and Nakamura are. The fact remains: all four players competed and Shankland won the
 
   Jun-04-18 J L Hammer vs V Sanal, 2011 (replies)
 
Scuvy: The domination of d3 by Black's Knights is reminiscent of "The Brisbane Bombshell" (Karpov-Kasparov, game 16, 1985 WCH).

Scuvy: Hi, Hemy: looks like the release date from Amazon has been moved up to June 15.
 
   Jan-30-18 Boris Spassky (replies)
 
Scuvy: Happy birthday to a true legend of the chess world!
 
   Dec-25-17 L Cooper vs Igor Ivanov, 1987 (replies)
 
Scuvy: Merry Christmas everyone!! Rook-sac Mondays are (almost) as good as Queen-sac Mondays...Rxa3+; Kxa3, Ra8+ and mate's coming.
 
   Dec-09-17 Adams vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
 
Scuvy: I would have expected 6 Be3 from Adams, who is well-versed in the English Attack against the Najdorf.
 
   Jul-23-17 James R Schroeder (replies)
 
Scuvy: My first contact with James Schroeder came through his writings when a high-school chess friend loaned me copies of his books on Boris Spassky and the 1967 Moscow grandmastersí tournament. I remember being impressed enough to order books from Jim, especially his book on the 1895-96 ...
 
   May-02-15 Karpov vs Ulf Andersson, 1973 (replies)
 
Scuvy: I would echo <DWINS> here that this is a fine performance by Karpov. I had not seen the previous Reshevsky game when I first saw this one, so I was not aware of the similarity in the plans for the light-squared Bishops. However, I was very impressed at the time by Karpov's idea ...
