   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)

   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 Reuben Fine (replies)
 
kostich in time: dear iron maiden: Fines view of the Soviets shifted with the winds.BEFORE the war, he was pretty uncritical..read 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 ...
 
   Feb-04-05 Vidmar vs Euwe, 1936 (replies)
 
kostich in time: this is extremely good game..Euwes revenge for Carlsbad 1929
 
   Feb-03-05 Topalov vs Shirov, 1998 (replies)
