Aug-13-07  Cactus: What is 'THE FIELD'?
Aug-13-07  whiteshark: I think it was a chess magazine, previously published or edited by Wilhelm Steinitz. But Steinitz died 1900...
Aug-13-07  Gejewe: "The Field" was a newspaper with a famous chess column, that has been done by Steinitz, and later also by his arch-enemy Hoffer.
Aug-13-07  Gejewe: Just looked it up in Whyld's "Chess columns - A list " [ Olomouc 2002 ] Editors of the chess column :
Williams 1853-1854 ; Boden 1870-1873 ; De Vere 1871 ; Steinitz 1873-1882 ; Hoffer 1882-1913 ; Burn 1913-1925 ; Smith 1925-1935 ; du Mont 1935-1955 ; Barden 1955-1994 The notes in this game thus stem from Amos Burn.
Aug-13-07  Cactus: Thanks!

Jun-02-22  tbontb: Excellent technique by Alekhine, who manoeuvred patiently as Black against White Atkins' several weaknesses (e3,b3,g2) and was clearly better from around move 30 onward. Atkins' defended extremely well under pressure but ultimately the mistake 50.f4 (better Qc2) in time-trouble lost immediately, as Alekhine demonstrated.
