Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-17-03  akiba82: After an unconvincing opening in which Black has the advantage, White is able to start an attack. Weiss was not aware of how best to exploit his two bishops and incorrectly closes the center with 11. ... d4. He also misses the opportunity to keep his king position relatively safe with 22. ... g5. This slip allows Mason to open lines and ultimately execute an effective exchange sacrifice with 28 Rc8! thereby gaining control of the g6 and f5 squares. Weiss's position collapses thereafter.
Feb-17-05  malbase: James Mason was an American player. At one time considered the best player in the U.S. Like more than several players he had a drinking problem. He was born in Ireland, and lived in the U.S.
I recall as a kid reading his book.
His chess book had an astounding clarity.
He could really write.
His name: No one knows for sure JM's real name.
It was believed his real name was Patrick Dwyer.
Mason called himself"Infernally Milesian".
It appears that Mason's father changed the family name to Mason, when they reached the U.S.
Nov-19-09  OlavDalkeith: what about this move?
32. Nxe5 + !?
black looses the queen!?
Aug-15-14  ColeTrane: that IS a better move....
Jul-08-19  Chesgambit: Epic match
Jul-08-19  whiteshark: <OlavDalkeith: what about this move? <32.Nxe5+!?> black looses the queen!?> Pardon? What am I supposed to make of that?

<ColeTrane: that IS a better move...> I'm sceptical you get more than a perpetual after <32...Qxe5>
