I am an UK chess player who plays OTB and correspondence. I particularly appreciate the games of Tal, Alekhine, Tarrasch and Capablanca.

I am particularly interested in the history of chess since the 19th century. I now spend most of my time here working on games collections.

Chessical: In September 2015, I enquired: <Would it be possible to have a page which lists submitted games which have newly been uploaded into the database?> The response was: <Yes, it is quite possible. The only reason we've never made such a feature is that often we upload puzzles
   Feb-06-19 Taimanov vs G Estevez Morales, 1973 (replies)
Chessical: <10...Qa3> is much better as it stops 11.Qg4. After the moved played, Estevez Morales never recovers. <17.Rg3+> seems to win outright, [DIAGRAM] after <17...Ng6> 18.h4 Kh8 19. Qh6 Rg8 20. h5 Nf8 21.Rhh3
   Jan-06-19 Vasiukov vs Ermenkov, 1972

   Nov-03-18 Maroczy vs H K Mattison, 1929
Chessical: <Mateo> <Honza Cervenka> Mateo, you are probably correct, if Maroczy had played, for example, [DIAGRAM] <37. Ke3> f5 38.Kd4 Ne6+ 39. Ke5 Ke7, he would have had a better chance of holding the endgame.
   Nov-02-18 Teichmann vs M Bluemich, 1924
