   Apr-29-05 Rotterdam vs Amsterdam, 1824 (replies)
 
fantasticplastic: Not that it seems positionally justified, but 7...Bxf3 would have been the instant move for me, praying to take advantage of that eensy-weensy isolated King Rook pawn and knowing that surviving the middlegame would be bleak unless White "cooperated."
 
   Apr-29-05 George Hammond (replies)
 
fantasticplastic: George Hammond was a champion of New England for many years but is probably best remembered for losing (along with his clueless Allies) a consultation game with Morphy, having played ...b5 way too premautrely while defending a Spanish Game.
 
   Apr-29-05 Duras vs Rubinstein, 1912 (replies)
 
fantasticplastic: I like Duras' calculated exchange sacrifice and subsequent entrapment of the b2-Rook, but one must have wondered what the great Rubinstein was thinking when he played 6...b5 when 6...cxd4 followed by 7...Bd7 seems more commendable, although in today's heaps of Tchigorin ...

fantasticplastic: Oldrich Duras is best characterised as a person who willingly entered a slugfest in the middlegame, even after an inferior position.
 
   Oct-07-04 C Stanley vs Morphy, 1857 (replies)
 
fantasticplastic: Chessbase.com, this game is as genuine as Keanu Reeves is an actor. It is published in Sergeant's book on Morphy (Dover Publications), and listed as Stanley's one win against Morphy against a dozen losses.
 
   Jun-06-04 Anderssen vs Hirschfeld, 1860 (replies)
 
fantasticplastic: Well, it's includes 80 of Anderssen's chess problems published in 1842. It also includes an obituary essay from the period that is worth a read. But regarding the chess content...I can't quite say why, but when you throw a book of 1000+ chess games with little more than ...
 
   May-15-04 Marshall vs J Mieses, 1904 (replies)
 
fantasticplastic: Mieses once played a game against another octogenarian in a match and won it. He proclaimed a victory for youth when the game ended. (smiles)
 
   May-15-04 Alapin vs Chigorin, 1901 (replies)
 
fantasticplastic: Alapin was a pretty fat chess player by any standards...=)
 
   May-15-04 Najdorf vs E C Guevara, 1962 (replies)
 
fantasticplastic: Nice game.
