   Dec-18-18 Benko vs Tal, 1962
sudoplatov: Benko also beat Keres this tournament. I think it was his first win over Keres. It was in the next-to-last round. I heard rumors (unconfirmed) that Fischer later told Benko that he (Benko) should have thrown his game to Keres to keep Petrosian from winning. I doubt this as ...
   Dec-18-18 Cochrane vs Mohishunder, 1855 (replies)
sudoplatov: EDO estimates for 1855: 1 Paul Morphy 2800 2 Howard Staunton 2636 26 Cochrane, John 2419 28 Bannerjee, Moheschunder 2417
   Dec-16-18 Capablanca vs O Chajes, 1918
sudoplatov: Going back through Chess365's lines, it seems that 9....h6 is already questionable. As in Spielmann's in the Rubinstein variation, 9...Qd5 seems better. After the text Capablanca's line with Qe4 score 1005 (two games though) in the database,
   Dec-16-18 Rubinstein vs Spielmann, 1921
sudoplatov: Just for fun, Spielmann had defeated Rubinstein twice with the same opening. Rubinstein vs Spielmann, 1912 Rubinstein vs Spielmann, 1919 Overally Rubinstein held a 15-11 record with 8 draws.
   Dec-14-18 Steinitz vs Showalter, 1894
sudoplatov: I remember the same advice. The Showalter (as I first saw it, also named for Capablanca) freeing move (...Nd5) supposedly doesn't go well with ...h6. The ...h6 idea does work with the Exchange variation or the Tartakover or Lasker processes. I'm not sure about things with White's
   Dec-13-18 Marshall vs Breyer, 1912 (replies)
sudoplatov: Local Stockfish indicates that 39....Ke4 loses; It allows White to put the Rook behind the Pawn. 40....Kd3 is worse than ....Kd5 as pointed out above.
   Dec-13-18 Euwe vs Rubinstein, 1923
sudoplatov: The opening is sometimes called the "Rubinstein" system. Yusupov rather liked it.
   Dec-13-18 10th London Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
sudoplatov: If you read some of the 1900-1920 tournament introductions on this site (most are really done), you will find that not getting a visa (or the equivalent) happened regularly during that period. Mannheim 1914 being a problem for other reasons.
   Dec-11-18 Topalov vs Judit Polgar, 1994
sudoplatov: Maroczy Binds Again!
   Dec-09-18 Marshall vs G A Thomas, 1933
sudoplatov: Our local Stockfish thinks Black can survive with 31...Rxf4
