   May-23-15 Gerald Abrahams (replies)
ughaibu: Abrahams wrote of Alekhine that he often wrote a book "post prandially and sans voir". Do you think he intended that as a euphemism for 'blind drunk'?
   Apr-25-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
ughaibu: I'm at the disadvantage of never having heard of Dorothy or Katarina, sad to say.
   Apr-24-15 AVRO (1938) (replies)
ughaibu: Capablanca's +8 at New York 1927 was a 70% performance, Lasker's +6 in the final at Saint Petersburg 1914 was an 87% performance. I think "+" scores are pretty meaningless, as they disregard the total number of games. About AVRO 1938, the winners got just over 60%, compare that with
   Apr-15-15 Fischer vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
ughaibu: "Tal did not "own" Fischer. In Tals own words, Tal was Tal but Fischer was not yet Fischer." I would have thought that that was why ChessYouGood wrote "Tal had absolutely owned Fischer (already the USA champion) up until 1960". "Fischer was the only player to visit Tal while he was ...
   Apr-15-15 I Rabinovich vs P Romanovsky, 1925
ughaibu: Vincere: the knight is pinned, so black will play 23...Qb1 not 23...Rxc3.
   Apr-15-15 Lutikov vs O Chernikov, 1978
ughaibu: Wasn't the immediate 21...h4 stronger?
   Mar-24-15 Najdorf vs B Wexler, 1964 (replies)
ughaibu: My favourite Najdorf mate: Najdorf vs NN, 1942 Mind you, I haven't seen them all yet.
   Mar-20-15 I Zdanovs vs Koblents, 1955
ughaibu: White sacrifices a piece, then goes in for a bunch of quiet moves Bc3, g3, h4. It's puzzling. Is the idea to eventually put black in zugzwang, I wonder.
   Mar-20-15 Y Zelinsky vs A Lipiridi, 1986
ughaibu: A nice and unusual rook sacrifice to finish this, but I don't understand why black gave up the knight with 38...Qd6(?)
   Mar-07-15 Capablanca vs NN, 1918
ughaibu: If black recaptures on f6, then white plays Qh6 and Nf6. If black doesn't recapture on f6, then white plays Ne7, Bg7 and Qg5.
