   sachistu has kibitzed 439 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-30-18 Alekhine vs Maurer, 1930
sachistu: Regarding the kibitz from <Stonehenge>... the Dutch newspaper Het Volk has two variances in the score. In addition to Black's 23rd and 24th moves, Black's 8th and 9th moves were reversed. Those two variances are given in the score from Magyar Sakkvilag, 1931, Issue ...
   Jun-28-18 Pal Rethy
sachistu: Does anyone know what the 'G.' stands for in his name? In his book Versenysakk (1943), the name is listed as G.Rethy Pal. In Hungarian magazines like Magyar Sakkvilag, the name is also listed as G. Rethy Pal. It's common for the last name to be listed first in Hungarian chess ...
   May-26-18 Korchnoi vs Tal, 1965
sachistu: Was this really Korchnoi-Tal? I have not been able to find this game in any of the Korchnoi or Tal books that I have. One online source listed this as Leningrad chp 1965, but that is clearly incorrect. Korchnoi's(?) move 16. Bxf6 is apparently a novelty which does not seem to have ...
   May-25-18 V Shipunov vs Kotov, 1938
sachistu: The score is incomplete. The game was drawn on the 49th move. I'll submit a correction slip.
   May-06-18 Rokhlin vs A Zaitsev, 1954 (replies)
sachistu: The colors are reversed. A.N. Zaitsev was Black. See Shakhmatny Bulletin Issue 1, 1972, p24, and Aleksander Zaitsev's games book p127 (game #53). There is some question about the location of the game. Sh. Bulletin 1972 lists it as a tournament of candidate masters and masters, but ...
   May-03-18 A Lisenko vs Karpov, 1971
sachistu: Oddly, Chessbase listed White as Veselovsky. However Veselovsky and Karpov played a completely different game at the URS team chp at Rostov on Don, 1971. This is confirmed in Shakhmatny Bulletin, 1971 Issue 10 and in Levy's book on Karpov (game 294). Levy also confirms this game is
   Apr-30-18 I Platonov vs G Kuzmin, 1970
sachistu: In Shakhmatny Bulletin 1970, Issue 8, p237-238, Black's 8th is given as 8...Qc7 (instead of ...Qd7, which is given here and in Chess Informant #9 game 340). After Black's 14th (14...Qxd6), the same position as the version given here is reached. However, in the version with 8...Qc7,
   Apr-29-18 Balashov vs Averbakh, 1970
sachistu: The venue was the Moscow championship. I'll submit a correction slip.
   Apr-28-18 Lusgin vs M Joffe, 1968
sachistu: <Stonehenge> re: your response to <Benzol>... I have to respectfully disagree. The last 3 games attributed to Manne Joffe probably belong to Alexander Ioffe. These online databases e.g. Chessbase, NICbase etc are somewhat error-prone. For example, the game with Feldman ...
   Apr-23-18 Tringov vs J Diez del Corral, 1970
sachistu: Amazingly, both Olimpbase and Tringov's games book give this identical score for both Kapfenberg 1970 (European team chp) and the Siegen olimpiad. However, Shakhmatna Misl, 1971 issue 1 page5-6, has a different score for the Siegen game, so this game was apparently played at ...

  Calli: Sergeant gives "Bornemann H" in Morphy's Games of Chess (page 348)

Also Maroczy (page 433)

But probably both of those authors copied it from Lange's third edition

Premium Chessgames Member
  Calli: You can see a Maroczy 1909 edition "snippet" here:

and Sergeant here:

Somewhere or another I had a reasonable guess of who Bornemann was, but I can't find my notes on it at moment.

You are correct about Guibert, I copied it from NIC and later found out it was a modern player, but never went back to correct the collection here.

  Calli: Looks like most Morphy v. Morphy games are duplicate Don't know why. As far as the two dates. CKR had the best Morphy pgn of the day and it probably had the two years in there.
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Calli> It's not that the games are duplicates, it's that due to a quirk in how the search works all of them are listed twice.

  Calli: The Alekhine vs Pinkus/Kevitz in the Brooklyn Eagle:

  sachistu: Anybody know what's going on at the Rusbase site? Have not been able to connect there for a least a week. Maintenance? Other?
Mar-08-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: Concerning your call for bulletins to ascertain the true scores for T Krabbe vs V Tukmakov, 1966 and for D Rivera vs I Farago, 1966, here's a link to a publication that might be of assistance:

As you can see, IM Jaroslav Šajtar (who I believe was the arbiter of the XIIIth World Student Team Chess Championship at Örebro, Sweden held from July 30 through August 14, 1966) compiled this volume, which was published by the International Union of Students in Prague, Czechoslovakia.

I wish I had this resource. It appears on some collectors' want lists. I don't mean to tantalize you with this information; I do hope somehow this concrete lead aids you in your research.

Kind regards.

Mar-08-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: By the way, I did check Tidskrift för Schack for 1966 and 1967 (both in the year-end Registers and in the apposite 1966 issues), but came up empty.

  sachistu: Thanks <luftforlife>. Sorry for the delay in responding. I have been otherwise occupied. I have Sajtar's book, but unfortunately, it only has a small selection of games and neither of those games are included. Thanks for checking TfS. I thought I had looked there, but another pair of eyes always helps. Again, thanks. Unfortunately, the question remains.
Mar-30-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: You're welcome. Good to hear from you, and good to know at least we've been on the same pages so far. I'll take another, harder look and see what I can find. Kind regards.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: I appreciate your efforts <luftforlife>. Sajtar has edited a number of these World Student Team Championship booklets, several of which I have. Apart from the round-by-round results, he typically includes 1-3 games from each round of the preliminary and final sections. This is far less than the total number of games played at these events. The booklets are useful, and his notes are interesting, but certainly not complete. Good hunting! I will be continuing my search as well.
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: My pleasure! I've left some notes at T Krabbe vs V Tukmakov, 1966. I've also requested definitive verification of the score for that particular game, and I hope my request proves fruitful. Hope you're well. Kind regards.
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: My request proved fruitful. I received a kind, gracious, and helpful reply, with definitive verification of the score and some context as well. Good news!
Premium Chessgames Member
  sachistu: Thanks <luftforlife>. I left a post at the Krabbe-Tukmakov game. One to go! (well, actually many to go!)
Mar-31-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: You're welcome! Always happy to help, and especially delighted to deliver good news. Definitude soothes.

Any other conundrums? Please let me know. Cheers!

Apr-05-16  luftforlife: <sachistu>: I heard from my source, and I got the straight dope on Pavlos Gesos. Check out his page to learn more. Great work by all concerned. Hope you're well! Best wishes.
