wwall: "The FBI today checkmated James M. Bolton, New England chess champion, for evading the draft. Bolton, 22 years old, of New Haven, was charged with refusing to report for induction, Connecticut's first evasion case under the new Selective Service Act. Bolton, unable to post bond for ...
   Apr-18-15 NN vs C Meyer, 1931
wwall: A quicker checkmate would have been, instead of 12...Nge4+, Black plays 12...Nce4+ 13.Kd3 Nf2+ 14.Kc3 Nge4 mate.
   Apr-17-15 Nimzowitsch vs Yates, 1928
wwall: Instead of 42...Qc2+, perhaps best is 42...Qe2+ 43.Kh1 Kh8 44.Qc8+ Kh7 45.Qf5+ Kh6 46.Nxf6 Qd1+ 47.Kg2 Qg1+ 48.Kf3 Qh1+ 49.Ke2 Qxh2+ 50.Kf1 Qh1+ 51.Ke2 Qg2+ 52.Ke1 Qd2+ 53.Kf1 Qd1+ 54.Kg2 Qe2+ 55.Kh1 Qe1+ 56.Kg2 Qg3+ 57.Kf1 gxf6 58.Qxf6+ Qg6 59.Qxh4+ Kg7 60.Qe7+ Qf7+ 61.Qxf7+ Kxf7 and
   Apr-15-15 W Paulsen vs Von Bardeleben, 1892
wwall: After 38...Qf4, White should have played 39.Rd8+ for the draw. Instead, White played 39.Re1? and Black played 39...Rxe1? for the draw instead of 39...Nf3+! 40.Qxf3 (40.gxf3 Kh1 41.Rxe1; 40. Kf2 Nd2+ wins; 40.Kh1?? Qh2 mate) 40...Qxf3 41.gxf3 Rxe1, and Black is up the exchange and will
   Apr-15-15 H Schimron vs H J Quednau, 1970 (replies)
wwall: For a correspondence game, you would think that White would play 37.Ke1 instead of the losing move 37.Rc2? Qd3+ 38.Rd2 (38.Bd2 Qf1+ 39.Be1 Rb1+ 40.Rc1 Rxc1+ 41.Kxc1 Qxe1+) 38...Qf1+ and wins. White may be able to hold with 37.Ke1 Bc3+ (37...Qc3+ 38.Kd1 Qd3+ 39.Ke1) 38.Kf2 Rf8+ 39.Bf4 ...

wwall: "The BBC recently televised the first simultaneous chess match. The international master C. H. O'Donel Alexander played 16 people simultaneously in a London restaurant, and the TV cameras dipped into the program from time to time to see how he was getting on. Surprisingly, the ...
   Apr-12-15 C Holt vs Akobian, 2015
wwall: Looks like the losing move was 46...Rg6? allowing White to later play 48.Qf4+. Black had to stop the White queen from getting to Qf4 or Qg5+ and had to play 46...Qd2. If 47.Qc8 (threatening 48.Qf8 mate), then 47...Rg6 or 47...Kf6.
   Apr-12-15 Jacques Mieses (replies)
wwall: "Mieses learned to select his meals with the fastidiousness of a gourmet, and could be relied on to find the best restaurant in any European city. On his travels he carried a special blend of English tea. He drank a pint or more of beer every day but never smoked." from Mieses ...
   Mar-29-15 Lasker vs J Muirhead, 1899
wwall: Instead of 19...Nb6, perhaps better was 19...b5. If 19...b5 20.Qb3 Re8 21.Qf7, then 21...Qf6 holds. It looks like the losing move was 20...Re8. Black had to play 20...Rg8 to prevent an eventual Bg7 or Qg7 mate threat. After 20...Re8 21.Qf7, White threatens 22.Qg7 or 22.Bg7 mate.

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

  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?

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!
