   Sep-08-18 I A Horowitz vs P Trifunovic, 1935
kostich in time: Horowitz was in excellent form at Warsaw, !935, as was Kupchick. This game, against the usually unbeatable Trifunovich, is literally fought until the last pawn. The US had to win this game, as the (relatively)inexperienced Fine had gone down against Dr. Vidmar.
   Sep-08-18 I A Horowitz vs Kupchik, 1928
kostich in time: The quality of this game can best be appreciated when one remembers that Kupchick was the second best American player at the time, after Marshall, and probably one of the twenty strongest players in the world.
   Jun-30-12 Vidmar vs Fine, 1935
kostich in time: At Nottingham 1936 , Vidmar and Fine played a series of speed games for stakes. Fine won a lot of money. When the series was over, Fine aske d Dr. Vidmar, "Is that how they play chess in Yugoslavia?" Apparently the speed games were Fine's revenge for this.
   Jun-30-12 W Von Holzhausen vs Bogoljubov, 1926 (replies)
kostich in time: Reti included this little-known gem in his chapter on Bogoljubov in Masters of the Chess Board..He saw as an model of active play with Black in the Sicilian. Indeed, it should be noted that Bogioljubov and Euwe were the most most skilled exponents of the Sicilian in the ...
   Nov-02-11 Flohr vs Benko, 1949
kostich in time: Trapping the Queen...even as late as 1947, Flohr could still be very bad news. This game was included in Tartakover and Dumont 100 master games of Modern chess.
   Nov-02-11 Botvinnik vs Vidmar, 1936 (replies)
kostich in time: It was at the Nottingham awards banquet that Dr. Vidmar said of Botvinnik that he wished he could have accomplished what Botvinnik had accomplished in Chess, to which Botvinnik replied that he wished that he could accomplish what Vidmar had accomplished in engineering.
   Jul-30-11 Huebner vs F Kuijpers, 1975
kostich in time: "Huebner boils his eggs"-Kavalek. Only Huebner could play the Keres varaition of the Scheviningen like a slow positional grind.
   Jul-05-11 Kavalek vs Ulf Andersson, 1978 (replies)
kostich in time: This is the best game froma short match in which Kavalek crushed Anderrson. From what I remember, the two grandmasters played in a store window, and Diesen( whatever happened to him?) commented on the games.
   Feb-15-05 Glucksberg vs Najdorf, 1929 (replies)
kostich in time: there is one piece of evidence that indicates that while this Game may be authentic. Tartakover annotated the gamefor Chess Review that very same year. he calle dit "the Polish immortal". Idon't think Tartakover would be privy to a hoax..he was, for example, a much more ...
   Feb-15-05 Reuben Fine (replies)
kostich in time: dear iron maiden: Fines view of the Soviets shifted with the winds.BEFORE the war, he was pretty his reort on his soviet tour for Chess review. Interestingly, after some conversations with Flohr and Keres in Moscow in 1946, he changed his mind.. To be fair ...
