   Feb-03-04 Zukertort vs Blackburne, 1883 (replies)
 
m0rphy: Blackburne relates an amusing tale about this game in his chess autobiography. Just before QG4! he thought he had a good game, got up and walked to other tables.Another asked what he thought of his game."Oh I don't know its very difficult" he replied then suddenly realised the text ...
 
   Feb-03-04 Nimzowitsch vs Tarrasch, 1914 (replies)
 
m0rphy: I am sure Tarrasch had seen the original game Lasker v Bauer Amsterdam 1900 when this original two bishop sac. was first "invented".It must have given Siegbert great satisfaction to beat his nemesis in the age old isolated Queen's pawn debate
 
   Feb-03-04 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1985 (replies)
 
m0rphy: So nice to see two Titans playing a rip roaring combinative game for a change instead of the usual grandmaster accumulation of tiny end game advantages sort of game.I play this game over much more than any other from all the KvK encounters
 
   Feb-03-04 Charousek vs J Wollner, 1893 (replies)
 
m0rphy: Yes I too read Prof. Kester Svendsen's article "The Last Round" in "The "Treasury of Chess Lore" which I bought around 1970.It takes place at "Bitzer Lake".This game induced in me an interest in Rudolph Charousek and I bought his best games on the strength of it.Apparantly he was so ...
 
   Feb-03-04 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
 
m0rphy: Being a great psychologist at chess, Lasker reasoned that as he had to beat Capa to win 1st prize he would choose the complete opposite of what Capa expected.He would go into a line of the Spanish which was known to be drawish at the time.This would make Capa relax and play in a ...
 
   Feb-03-04 Bird vs Morphy, 1858 (replies)
 
m0rphy: My what a lot of debate on this game!!.To add fuel to the fire please read Karpov's book "Miniatures from the World Champions" where he puts this whole combination by Morphy's ...Rf2 under his analytic spotlight to determine its' soundness.Interesting that he does not pick as an ...
 
   Feb-03-04 Bird vs NN, 1869 (replies)
 
m0rphy: During the mid 1950s one Horace Shepherd devised a series of "Chess Miniatures" - films wherein the pieces appeared to move by themselves and jump out of the box.I first saw some of these in 1959 (when I was 13) on a childrens' BBC tv programme called "Focus".Later they were shown by
 
   Feb-03-04 Blackburne vs H Gifford, 1874 (replies)
 
m0rphy: I have seen several examples of this white queen sac on H6 follwed by the double check by the knight unmasking the dark square bishop forcing the black king out from h6 towards the white camp and mate in a few moves.There is a game won by G H McKenzie but unless I consult my chess ...
 
   Feb-03-04 Anderssen vs Dufresne, 1852 (replies)
 
m0rphy: I read somewher that instead of the 6 million dollar move Ra1-d1 Emanuel Lasker recommended be4 as a more efficient winning move as Lasker goes onto suggest how Dufresne could have avoided the mate after the actual move played.It is curious that despite being world champion for so ...
 
   Feb-03-04 S Levitsky vs Marshall, 1912 (replies)
 
m0rphy: To answer "Rookpawns" 9/3/03 post, if you refer to "Marshall's Greatest Games" (formerly "My Chess Career"), Marshall states words to the effect: "I have often been asked whether the crowd really did shower us with gold coins.The answer is yes literally!!"
