   Jun-18-17 C Chaplin vs Reshevsky, 1923 (replies)
rea: "I don't see Chuck's moustache. Was that real, or did he just glue one on for the movies?" He grew it to mock Hitler, who no one had heard of in '21, when the picture was taken.
   Jun-13-17 Paul Motwani (replies)
rea: Scots, wha hae wi' Motwani bled, Scots, wham Rowson has aften led; Welcome to your gory bed, Or to victory!
   Jun-12-17 Prince Dadian vs Doubrava, 1896 (replies)

   Feb-09-17 Fischer vs Smyslov, 1965 (replies)
rea: <em> There's a funny photo of Fischer complaining about something at the board, with Castro looking really exasperated, and in the background Korchnoi has a big smile on his face. couldn't find it on the net.</em> Must have been the Olympiad in '66. In '65, Fischer couldn't ...
   Feb-06-17 Stephen Barbre
rea: Board 1 on the Silver High School Chess team, (Silver City, New Mexico) class of '72. I was last board . . .
   Feb-06-17 Olland vs J Esser, 1901 (replies)
rea: In 1573, the City of Haarlem was captured by the Spanish after a long siege, and the population was massacred. I'm not sure what the pun has to do with this.
