I've been on the lookout for bits of chess information ever since I started collecting literature on the game back in 1972. Yes, the Fischer-Spassky match is what started it all! At any rate, I can see that I've come to the right place, both for giving and for receiving chess information online.

Infohunter: <Stale.Mate: Wasn’t...31Kh8 a mistake? Wouldn’t Kf7 offer a fighting chance?> If 31...Kf7, White still wins a piece: a)32.Qg7+ Ke6 33.Qe5+ Kf7 34.Rxf5 or 34.Qxf5 b) 32.Qg7+ Ke8 33.Qxd7+ Kxd7 34.Rxf5
   Mar-06-19 A Moiseenko vs Yusupov, 2010 (replies)
Infohunter: Mate in six, useless interpositions included.
   Feb-27-19 Capablanca vs Blackburne, 1914 (replies)
Infohunter: <Check It Out: Is the pun reference a speech one or a 420 one? Hopefully both.> It's a pun on a line in an old nursery rhyme which runs, "Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie..."
   Jan-26-19 M Gurevich vs N Pert, 2007 (replies)
Infohunter: Statistics be what they may, White is 100% certain of winning this one, barring crass blunders. After 64...Qxf6+ 65.Kxf6 it would take Black a minimum of six moves to Queen a Pawn, while White Queens in just three moves. The time advantage is ample for White.
   Jan-07-19 Paul Keres (replies)
Infohunter: Keres' record of defeating nine world champions in individual encounters was duplicated by Viktor Korchnoi .
   Jan-05-19 J M Bellon Lopez vs S Marder, 2005 (replies)
Infohunter: Black may well have thought it was "in the bag" when he played that family fork at his 27th. Oops!
   Jan-03-19 T Rienaecker vs M Junge, 2004
Infohunter: This past summer I played the Black side of this as a casual game. My opponent said he had chosen Bird's Opening on the strength of some book he had just read. All I can say is, "Choose your reading material carefully!"
   Jul-09-18 Berthold Englisch
Infohunter: <gars> The Fred Reinfeld book I read put it this way, if I recall correctly: "Just as MacBeth had to murder, Englisch had to draw."
   Mar-05-18 Von Gottschall vs Tarrasch, 1888 (replies)
Infohunter: <offramp> I switched to pgn4web, for the purposes of this game only, and got the 100 moves.
   Feb-22-18 D Wagner vs P Nikolic, 2017 (replies)
Infohunter: White makes nine of his first eleven moves with Pawns. Not your usual opening method, but clearly it worked.
