   Apr-01-14 Kieseritzky vs Horwitz, 1846
wwall: 43...Bg3+? was the crucial mistake. Black should play 43... Re8 or 43...Ng6. After 44.Kxg3 Nf5+ 45.Kf4 Nxh6 46.Rc6+ and 47.Rxh6, White is 3 pawns up with a clear win.
   Mar-28-14 J Mason vs Englisch, 1883
wwall: Was 35.Kd3 played or was 35.Ke3 played? Fine and Benko analyze this ending assuming that that White King was on e3, but in this game, White never plays Ke3.
   Mar-27-14 Gunsberg vs J N Berger, 1883
wwall: Instead of 51...Be8, Black can also win with 51...f4+ 52.exf4+ Kf6 53.Kf3 Bf5 54.d1 c3 55.Ke3 c2 56.Bxc2 Bxc2, etc.
   Mar-27-14 J N Berger vs Maroczy, 1905
wwall: Instead of 54...Ne6?, Black can win after 54...a4 55.Kxb6 a3 56.Nc2 a2 57.Kc5 Ne6+ 58.Kc4 h5 59.b6 Nd8 60.Kd3 Kf4 61.Ke2 Kg3 62.Kf1 h4 63.Kg1 h3 64.Na1 h2+ 65.Kh1 Kh3 66.Nc2 Nb7 67.Na1 Nc5 68.Nc2 Ne4 69.b7 Nf2 mate.
   Mar-27-14 Keres vs Reshevsky, 1939
wwall: Instead of 59.Kxh3?, White wins after 69.Kh4 Ke6 70.Kg5 Kf7 71.f5 Kg7 72.Ng4 Ng2 73.f6+ Kf7 74.Ne5+ Kf8 75.f7 Ke7 76.Kh6 Nf4 77.Kg7 Nh5+ 78.Kh7 Kf8 79.Kh6 Nf6 80.Kg6 Nd5 81.Nd7+ Ke7 82.f8=Q+.
   Mar-27-14 Lisitsin vs Alatortsev, 1935
wwall: Instead of 48.Kc2?, White can draw with 48.e4 Kb1 49.e5 Kc1 50.Kc4 Kb2 51.g4 g6 52.g5 Kc2 53.f4 Kb2 54.b4 a4 55.b5 a3 56.b6 a2 57.b7 a1=Q 58.b8=Q+ Kc2 59.Qb3 Kd2 60.Qd3+ Ke1 61.Qe3+ Kf1 62.Qf3+ and perpetual check.
   Mar-27-14 Book vs Fine, 1935
wwall: Instead of 40.b4?, White wins after 40.Kd5! a6 41.b3 Kf6 42.Kc5 Ke5 43.Kb6 Kd6 44.b4 Kd5 45.Kxa6 Kc4 46.h4 g6 47.Kb6 g5 48.hxg5 hxg5 49.Kc6 Kd3 (49...Kxc3 50.Kxb5 wins for White) 50.Kxb5 Ke3 51.Kc6 Kf2 52.b5 Kxg2 53.b6 Kxf3 54.b7 g4 55.b8=Q g3 56.Qe5 g2 57.Qg5 Kf2 58.Qxf4 and White ...
   Mar-27-14 Flohr vs Ragozin, 1936
wwall: Instead of 68...Kf5, if 68...Kg4, then 69.g3! Kf5 70.Kh5 [At this point, Reuben Fine in Basic Chess Endings #45, wrote, "Black must move, his king must go away, when g6 wins." Fine was mistaken.] 70..Ke4! 71.g6 hxg6+ 72.Kxg6 Kf3 and the Black King take's White's remaining last pawn, ...
   Mar-24-14 Saint Amant vs Staunton, 1843
wwall: 53...Rg8? looks like a losing move. Now, instead of 54.Qh7+, which should have drawn with a stalemate, White may be winning after 54.Qe5 R4g7 55.Qxf5+ Ke8 56.Kh6 Re7 57.h5 Rf8 58.Qg6+ Rff7 59.Kg5 a5 60.Qg8+ Rf8 61.Qb3 Re2 62.Qb8+ Kf7 63.Qb7+ Re7 64.c7 Rg8+ 65.Kh4.
   Mar-24-14 Saint Amant vs Staunton, 1843
wwall: The losing move is probably 51.Rg7? Better may be 51.Kd6 or 51.Ke6 and Re8.

Apr-16-11  Open Defence: breaking news!! Bill Wall + Open Defence draw against Rybka!! :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  wwall: I think it was Houdini we played, run by Aylerkupp. We had Black. With the help of Hosea, we got a draw (drawn endgame as we sacked our knight to get into a knight vs pawn ending).
Apr-16-11  Open Defence: i thought Wilson said GE and AK switched engines and kutz just posted his stockfish game against houdini, so my guess we drew with rybka.. though i am very confused at the line up change
Apr-16-11  Open Defence: the yahoo game score emailed to me is in a very poor format will wait for AK to post the PGN

Premium Chessgames Member
  wwall: <chessmoron>. I have no problem on the May date, but now I have a conflict for next week, April 30. I am playing in the Space Coast Open in Cocoa, FL with round 1 at 10 am and Rd 2 at 1 pm. I don't think I can make the 12 noon start time for EST. Can a replacement be found for me or can Hosea and Eric play if Eric makes it?
Apr-23-11  Open Defence: does Sunday 1 May 2011 work for you Bill?
Apr-23-11  chessmoron: <1 May 2011> won't work for <kutztown> though.

Would April 29th work for you <wwall>?

Premium Chessgames Member
  wwall: Friday, April 29 would work for me if it is in the evening EST. On May 1, my rounds are at 9 am and 2:30 pm. I would be ok in the evening.
Apr-23-11  chessmoron: 10:30 pm EDT Friday on April 29th? (That 8 am Saturday in India). If that doesn't work for you, Thursday, the 28th at the same time?

  Golden Executive: <chessmoron> <April 30-Round 3

Stockfish-Rybka 4 >
I (Houdini´s operator) have no problem playing at Sunday May 1 or Friday 29. I have problem thursday 28

Premium Chessgames Member
  wwall: 10:30 pm EST works perfectly for me on Friday (Thursday also works)
Apr-23-11  Open Defence: just read the comments to the rybka game at,

I dont think the average chess fan understands how much of a handicap no Opening books and no Tablebases are to an engine

it still takes a lot of work to go the distance against an engine but with opening books and tablebases the engines would gain and exploit advantages in record time

so the guy who posted that rybka must have been handicapped was in a sense right that it was handicapped with no opening book or tablebase but not otherwise in handicapped in any way..

wonder what they will say for the stockfish game especially since it was a tactical shot that got the draw!
