   Sep-09-17 Najdorf vs J L Alvarez del Monte, 1962
maxi: In the final position Najdorf has achieved a beautiful Zugzwang position!
   Aug-30-17 O Chajes vs Capablanca, 1916
maxi: <Jimfromprovidence> One of my first two chess books was "Chess Fundamentals". I remember when I saw Capa's game with Chajes, and read his comment regarding Chajes fifty first move I thought "What the hell is he talking about". When I read your post I remembered Capa's comment and
   Aug-29-17 Pillsbury vs Schlechter, 1899 (replies)
maxi: What a game!
   Aug-26-17 Grischuk vs R Rapport, 2017

maxi: <HOTDOG>, thanks for your contribution.
   Aug-12-17 Karjakin vs W So, 2017 (replies)
maxi: You are right, <devere>, the column is not long enough!
   Jul-15-17 Capablanca vs G A Thomas, 1919 (replies)
maxi: Geez! No wonder Thomas resigned.
   Jul-14-17 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1966 (replies)
maxi: Now you have put me in a quandary, Petrosianic. I seem to recall I used a cut-and-paste for the quote, but this was more than three years ago and I am not sure of that or where I got it from. I don't have the book. Do you have access to it yourself? I am going to keep looking anyway. ...
