   Apr-25-17 Capablanca - Marshall (1909)
 
sudoplatov: Actually, Cuba was independent since 1902. During the Spanish-American War, the US declared that Cuba would become independent after the war (it took about 4 years; probably to sign all the forms). I assume that Marshall and Capablanca were friends until death; probably as there ...
 
   Apr-04-17 Baden-Baden (1925)
 
sudoplatov: Marshall scored the same here as in Moscow 1925.
 
   Mar-31-17 US Championship (2017) (replies)
 
sudoplatov: Deep Blue was IBM's term for their special purpose chess computer. Deep Throat was supposedly the code name for the person who leaked the Watergate stuff to the press. It was also an early porn film.
 
   Mar-30-17 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
 
sudoplatov: With Bishops of Opposite Colors, the winning side needs either widely separated Passed Pawns or attacking chances. The presence of Rooks does give some chance of attack. However, White cannot swap Rooks or Bishops except under unusual circumstances (like a win in sight.) I'd ...
 
   Mar-27-17 Robert E Byrne vs Fischer, 1963
 
sudoplatov: A couple of points about alpha-beta. Given a minimax search tree to a fixed depth, alpha-beta will return the same value (not necessarily the same move) as a complete search. The algorithm works by noting that both sides are trying to minimax their play. A couple of caveats are ...
 
   Mar-21-17 Curacao Candidates (1962) (replies)
 
sudoplatov: On my last visit to Curaçao, tried to find the hotel where the Candidates' tournament took place. The names of the hotels in Curaçao seemed to have changed a bit. I did find what I though was correct but there wasn't anything there (except a Curaçao souvenir shop.) The husband of
 
   Mar-12-17 Lasker vs Pillsbury, 1895
 
sudoplatov: The reason for d4 rather than d3 is that White hopes to show that the tempo Black gained by putting the Knight on e4 loosens the position too much. After d3 the position is symmetric with White having only the move advantage. It's a lot like the French Exchange or the Double ...
 
   Mar-08-17 Geza Maroczy (replies)
 
sudoplatov: In my perusing the database for closed polygons, I found another triangle. Maroczy beat Marshall 11-5-8 Marshall beat Pillsbury 5-4-2 Pillsbury beat Maroczy 4-3-7
 
   Mar-03-17 Keres vs V Mikenas, 1937
 
sudoplatov: If this is the "delayed exchange" variation, on what move should White take to be an "exchange" or "accelerated exchange" version.
 
   Mar-03-17 Carl Schlechter (replies)
 
sudoplatov: There are some interesting chess records involving Schlecter. Marshall +8 -5 =19 Pillsbury +8 -2 =9 Tarrasch +8 -7 =28 Lasker +5 -2 =12 Spielmann +2 -3 =12 Alekhine +0 -2 =0 (Alekhine Marshall +6 -0 =7 triangle) Rubinstein +6 -2 13= Steinitz -4 +3 =3 Capablanca
