Jun-27-09  Knight13: 8...d6 ? Black should've gone aggressive and play d5, c5. Because White was attacking on the queen side.

But he didn't and ended up being crammed.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Black has such an odd name that I wonder if this was the team of D. Van Antwerp and someone named Vedens.

What if 33...Qxd2; 34.Qxd2,Rxd2; 35.Rxc8,Kg7; 36.Rc6,Rd4; 37.Rxb6,Rxc4; 38.Rc6,Rb4; 39.Rxc5,Nd5? Can Black hold on in this ending?

  Calli: Yes, it was a team of Van Antwerp and Dimitri Vedensky and W. H. Smith. In your line, 36...Nd7 looks like an advantage for Black. They could also give up the exchange with 40...Rd4 41.Nf5+ Kf6 42.Nxd4 exd4 with 2 pawns comp.
Oct-04-15  TheFocus: From a simultaneous consultation exhibition in San Francisco, California at the Mechanics Institute on May 10, 1929.

Alekhine scored +2=1-0.

See <San Francisco Chronicle>, May 26, 1929.

Oct-12-16  MekkiAlgeria: 42.Rxc8++ Qxc8 43.Dd6 Kg8 44.Qxh6 Qf8 45.Nf6#
