   Jan-14-05 Yasser Seirawan (replies)
rleder: I have all of Yaz' books. I really like his style of instruction. I recently purchased Winning Chess Brilliancies through Amazon, and was disappointed that it wasn't published by Microsoft Press, as were the other five volumes I have. It looks like a great book, but the Everyman ...
   Jan-14-05 Budapest Gambit (A52) (replies)
rleder: <tpstar>thanks, I will definitely go through those games tomorrow. I copied the notation from a PGN, I really should have cleaned it up before posting.
   Jan-13-05 Janosevic vs Geller, 1968 (replies)
rleder: I'm unbeatable with this opening, playing either side.
   Jan-12-05 Capablanca vs K Treybal, 1929 (replies)
rleder: iron maiden's Seirawan quote is from Play Winning Chess. This game was used to illustrate space advantage - specifically, how to exploit one with rooks on an open file. I don't understand Capablanca's moves from 47-51. Did he like to toy with his opponents, or was the great champion ...
   Jan-11-05 P Vinogradov vs Y Kruppa, 1999 (replies)
rleder: I guess Vinogradov was a little rusty coming off his 96-year hiatus. Too bad, since beating Alekhine ( P Vinogradov vs Alekhine, 1903 ) would have been a high note to retire on. ;)

rleder: <Lawrence>thanks for the warm welcome! I'm a recreational player, not a very good one, but I think this site is going to be a great resource for me.
   Jan-11-05 Beliavsky vs Timman, 1981 (replies)
rleder: Interesting that Timman has found himself in the same position after 45 half-moves, playing both as white and as black. I wonder if that's a record? Here he plays 23...Rg7, while Hjartson would play 23...Qd4 against him in '89. White won in both cases.
   Jan-11-05 H Reinle vs Lange, 1936 (replies)
rleder: 2...f5 looks spectacularly bad to me. Could anything good possibly come out of that move for black? 4...Ke7 could have averted immediate catastrophe, but losing the ability to castle and having your kingside ripped open is still a pretty miserable opening.
   Jan-09-05 L Christiansen vs Karpov, 1993 (replies)
rleder: Hi tpstar! Thanks for the link. Entertaining collection.
   Jan-09-05 M Basman vs Keene, 1981 (replies)
rleder: I'm intrigued by the fact that white has won 72.7% of the Grob games in this database, especially considering it's reputation as an unsound opening (which I'm not qualified to dispute, besides which it looks terrible to my patzer eyes anyway). Why do you suppose that is? Is 150 games
