   sachistu has kibitzed 400 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-04-18 B Vladimirov vs Vulfson, 1969
sachistu: Black was V.Vulfson (not Wolfson) and the event was Adler "Trud" ch (not Agler). Adler is (was) a small town near Sochi. This typo was apparently carried forward from Issue #4 of Shakhmatny Bulletin 1970 (p.112). A cross table of the event is available on Popovsky's RUSBASE web ...
   Jan-02-18 John Bauneborg Nielsen
sachistu: Just FYI <Tabanus> no response from DSU. Will still try to obtain information on this player.
   Dec-31-17 Y Kotkov vs Suetin, 1970
sachistu: My bad <Sargon>. The 37th move pair was 37.Kd3 Rd1+.
   Dec-31-17 Murey vs M Yudovich Sr., 1970
sachistu: The venue was the Spartak championship in Moscow. In Shakhmatny Moscow, 1970, Issue 11, Yudovich expanded on the notes he gave to the game in Chess Informant 9, game 201. For example, in the note to move 13 where he gives 13...Nxd4!? 14.Nxa8 Nf3+ 15.Kh1 b6 in Chess Informant, ...
   Dec-23-17 A Rhode vs Ed. Lasker, 1909
sachistu: <Karpova> there is a slight spelling error. It should be A (Arthur) Rhode pastor from Schildberg. I'll submit a correction slip which should remove the stray 'A Rohde' from the database.
   Dec-14-17 Svidler vs Kiril D Georgiev, 1999
sachistu: Seirawan and Christiansen commenting on the game say Georgiev 'offered a draw to clinch the match in a manifestly superior position'. That evaluation seems questionable. I would prefer Black here.
   Dec-04-17 Gulko vs Dlugy, 1989
sachistu: Shouldn't this be 1988?
   Nov-21-17 de Firmian vs G Rey, 1987
sachistu: Can anyone confirm this is the score from the De Firmian-Rey game? This same score has been attributed to Marjanovic-Skembris, Pucarevo zt 1987.
   Nov-18-17 Kristiane Prescha
sachistu: Is this the same person as Kristiane Lueckerath? I noticed what appears to be a name change in a FIDE Rating list between 1997 and 1998.
   Nov-17-17 I Novikov vs Dreev, 1987
sachistu: Oops... I forgot to mention 9.Qc2 was the actual move (as given in the Informant).

  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.
Premium Chessgames Member
  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.
Premium Chessgames Member
  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.
