   Apr-09-17 Robert James Fischer (replies)
wwall: I remember that picture of Fischer performing with that Alpine dance troupe, but later read it was fake and not really Bobby Fischer, but someone that looked like him. I have not confirmed if that was really Fischer or not.
   Apr-08-17 O Bernstein vs Najdorf, 1954
wwall: A link on my article of older players. I need to update it. It's getting old.
   Feb-24-17 R Frick vs T Magnusson, 2013
wwall: Tal - E. Jaggs, London simul 1964, went 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e5 c5 5. a3 Bxc3+ 6. bxc3 cxd4 7. cxd4 Ne7 8. Bd3 O-O 9. Nf3 Nbc6 10. Bxh7+ Kh8 11. Bd3 Ng6 12. Ng5 1-0
   Feb-23-17 A Hild vs H Goering, 1900
wwall: 9...O-O? loses a piece after 10.cxd5, threatening 11.dxc6. If 10...Qxd5, then 11.Bxe4. Instead of 9...O-O, Black had to play 9...Nf6 or 9...Bxf3. 17.Qxd4! was clever. After 17...Bc5 (pinning queen and king) 18.Bxg4 Bxd4+ 19.Kf1, and of 19...Rxe1+, then 20.Rxe1 Qc5 21.Re8+ Qf8 22.Rxf8+
   Feb-22-17 I Gudju vs K Behting, 1924
wwall: Besides 24...Qd4, Black could have won with 24...Nd4+ 25 Kc3 (25.Ka4 Qa6 mate) 25...Bb4+ 26.Kxb4 Nc2+ 27.Ka4 Qa6+ 28.Kb3 Nxa1+ 29.Kb4 (29.Kc3 Qa5+ 30.b4 Qe5 mate) 29...Qb6+ 30.Ka4 a5, threatening 31...Qb4 mate
   Feb-19-17 F Visier Segovia vs J Betancort Curbelo, 1968
wwall: Looks like 25...Rxc2?? is the losing move, allowing 26.Be5 with mate threats. Perhaps best is 25...Qf3, and if 26.Be5??, then 26...Rxe5 27.Rxe5 Qxd1+ wins for Black. Besides 28.Rxg7, White could have won with 28.Rxc1 Rf8 (28...Rxc1?? 29.f8=Q mate) 29.Rcg1, threatening mate in a few ...
   Feb-18-17 B Kostic vs D Donaldson, 1915
wwall: Instead of 22.Ne4, White could have offered a queen sacrifice with 22.Rhf1 (threatening 23.Rf8+) 22...Rxg4 (22...cxd5 23.Nxd5 Rxd5 [23...Rxg4 24.Nxe7 mate] 24.Qf4 with a mate threat) 23.Rf8+ Qxf8 24.e7+ cxd5 and now four different ways to checkmate next move by queening either pawn ...
   Feb-16-17 V Soldatenkov vs NN, 1902
wwall: Instead of 28.Qg8+ white mates in a few moves with 28.Rdg1!, threatening 29.Qg8+ Rxg8 30.hxg8=Q mate. After 28.Rdg1, if 28...Rxh7 (28...Nf6 29.Qg8+ Nxg8 30.hxg8=Q+ Rxg8 31.Bg7 mate), then 29.Bg7+ Kg8 30.Bxe5+ Rg7 31.Qxg7+ Qxg7 32.Rxg7+ Kf8 33.Rh8 mate.
   Feb-14-17 B Kostic vs C Jaffe, 1911 (replies)
wwall: It looks like 92...Bg5?? is the losing move. Black should have played 92...f1=Q 93.Rxf1 Bg3 and it is a book draw. After 94.Rd4 Kxf1 95.Kxd2 (or 95.Rxd2) there is no win in this rook vs bishop endgame.
   Feb-13-17 Kupchik vs Capablanca, 1913
wwall: Perhaps the losing move is 42.Nd3 since White will not be able to protect the d4 pawn with his knight. Better may be 42.Kc1, and if 42...Rxh5, then 43.Rxb3 Rh4 44.Rf3 Kg6 (44...Rxd4 45.Rxf7+ Kg6 46.Rf8 looks like a draw) 45.Nc2 and White may be able to draw this endgame.

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

  chessmoron: <wwall> I might have to move Round 5 to May 21st because of <Open Defence>'s Business trip 5/10-5/16 with May 14th as a rest day. If you object, please let me know.
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?
Premium Chessgames Member
  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.
Premium Chessgames Member
  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
  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!
