Dec-03-04  kostich in time: Kostic fled Europe in 1914, first goingto Argentina and beating local masters, and then moving to the USA,and doing the same thing...Kostic literally traveled all over the country, challenging state champions to matches, and crushing them.Here is an instance, Kostic beating the Colorado state champion, in it mmust be admitted, dashing style.This-and his excellent blind-fold play, made Kostic famous.Eventually,he even becam so drunk with sucess that he challenged Capablanca-with disastrous results.

  wwall: Instead of 22.Ne4, White could have offered a queen sacrifice with 22.Rhf1 (threatening 23.Rf8+) 22...Rxg4 (22...cxd5 23.Nxd5 Rxd5 [23...Rxg4 24.Nxe7 mate] 24.Qf4 with a mate threat) 23.Rf8+ Qxf8 24.e7+ cxd5 and now four different ways to checkmate next move by queening either pawn and taking a queen or a rook.
