   Jan-16-15 A Giri vs Ivanchuk, 2015 (replies)
Knight13: Go Ivanchuk!

Knight13: <> Your example helped a lot. Thanks. Happy New Year!
   Jan-01-15 J Mason vs Winawer, 1878 (replies)
Knight13: 22... Rad8 was a very subtle, Anderssen-like move.
   Dec-31-14 Winawer vs H Gifford, 1878
Knight13: I prefer 10. Ra3 over 10. c3. 18. Be1 seems just as good as 18. Bf2. 22. Qf1 is more precise. White's 22. Raa2 was a little too presumptuous that Black will play 22... gxf3? the next move, which, fortunately for him, Black did. 23. Nd5 is slightly better than 23. Rxf3. Other ...
   Dec-29-14 Bird vs Winawer, 1878
Knight13: Black's 6... f6 was interesting. If White had responded with 7. Nh4, it would've been even more interesting. Instead of 13. Qg4 Kf7 14. Qf3, 13. Qh5+ g6 14. Qf3 seems more accurate. 24. a5 > 24. Rfe1. 37. Nc3 is more promising than 37. Rf1: 37... Rb2 38. Rb1; 37... f2 38. Rf1 ...
   Dec-28-14 Winawer vs Bird, 1878
Knight13: 5... h5?!: The game has barely started and Black was already deconstructing his king's potential safe haven to launch a premature attack. Following it up with 8... d5? was no good for His Highness either; 8... d6 is more advisable. 14... g4, with the threat of ... Qh4, seems ...
   Dec-27-14 Max Weiss vs Von Bardeleben, 1887
Knight13: <elohah: 15...-19... - 'And even today, many players show the Center a clean pair of heels' -Nimzovich (Praxis)> So in other words, Black launched an attacked without having first secured the center and thus failed. Attempting to "outrun" the center wasn't a good idea, was ...
   Dec-27-14 Von Gottschall vs Mackenzie, 1887
Knight13: 15. g4? reeked of overconfidence. But certainly not 30... c5!. <Calli: Which is classified as "believe it or not"? The original mistake or the correction :->> Why, the original mistake, of course. ;)
   Dec-27-14 Mackenzie vs Taubenhaus, 1887
Knight13: 15. Ne2 instead of text's 15. hxg5: Black's Knight has no safe place to run. Now what? Why did White play 15. hxg5--what did Black have up his sleeve (if any)? 17... Bb4 is a better alternative: 18. Bd2 (Re3 Bxg5) Nc4 19. Rb1 Nxb2! 20. Rxb2 Bxc3 wins a pawn; If 18. Qd3 then ...g6, ...
   Dec-27-14 Mackenzie vs J Noa, 1887
Knight13: <French Defense: Advance. Euwe Variation (C02)> Alas, even though Josef Noa outplayed the winner of Frankfurt 1887 (ahead of Zukertort, Burn, Blackburne, Weiss, Gunsberg, Schiffers, von Bardeleben, Englisch, young Tarrasch, etc.), George Mackenzie, in the same tournament with
