|Dec-25-05|| ||Saruman: 31.-Nd6 32.Rc7 Kf8 (32.-Nxe8 33. 33.exf7+ Kf8 34.fxe8Q+ Kxe8 35.Rxa7 Rxh2 36.Nf5 with an easy win for white) 33.Bxf7 Ne7 34.Rd7 g6 35.Ng4 h5 36.Ne5 .|
|Dec-25-05|| ||aw1988: <ruylopez> Yates was pretty strong. I don't think he was playing without a plan...|
|Apr-16-06|| ||GlassCow: The "super-fianchetto" of dark-squared bishop on b2 and queen on a1 is always a treat to see in the games of Reti. He used this same setup in a famous win over Rubinstein.|
|Apr-16-06|| ||IMDONE4: Rxc6! is a great move. Black should never have allowed white to double up on the open c-file and get play along there. Also, f4 was a great strengthening move, making white's pawn structure incredibly solid.|
|Apr-16-06|| ||ray keene: http://www.chessbaseusa.com/NY1924/... i tried clicking on the above but to no avail-i am interested in this game and the book so can the reference be accessed?|
|Apr-16-06|| ||paulalbert: Unfortunately, I don't think this very interesting site about the great NY 1924 Tournament is any longer in existence. Paul Albert|
|Apr-16-06|| ||ray keene: pity-that event produced some of my favourite games -especially retis games v capablanca lasker bogolyubov and this one v yates--endlessly fascinating battles between pawn centres and fianchettoed bishops and queens on a1 !! wonderful stuff. also laskers wins -how he notched those up---unbelievable-it almost didnt matter what sort of position he got!|
|Apr-16-06|| ||mack: Ray - the wonders of the Wayback Machine have come to your rescue. The file downloads obviously don't work, but I'm sure if you spoke to Steve Lopez nicely(firstname.lastname@example.org) he'd sort you out. |
Here's the title page:

and so on. Hope this helps!
|Apr-16-06|| ||paulalbert: <mack> Great to know there is still a way to look at the information on the 1924 Tournament in the Battle Royale site. How did you know where to find information on vanished sites? Paul Albert|
|Apr-17-06|| ||mack: http://web.archive.org is a godsend - not a completely flawless godsend just yet, but a godsend nonetheless.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||ray keene: <mack> thanks interesting-back in the dim and distant past i seem to recall you were going to send me a magazine article re staunton or something -or am i hallucinating? something like best of british? was that it?|
|Jun-07-08|| ||Jesspatrick: The effectiveness of the Q on a1 controlling the diagnol and permitting access to e5 was a key to Reti's success in this game.|
Evidently Yates, though one of the best in the world at the time of this tournament, just wasn't in Reti's class.

White is waiting for the right moment to plsy d3-d4 and Black wouldn't like to reply ...e4 because of Ne5 etc. But according to Niemzowitsch overprotection of e5 would have come to the rescue: 14...b5 15.Nf1 Qb8 16.Ne3 a5. Black has secured his outpost and is already clearly better.
|Nov-21-15|| ||morfishine: Great, just great, another Reti play-on-word|
|Nov-21-15|| ||minehumer: Oh this reminds me of that game where the queen was on h6 and the pawn on f6 had mate in 1 but had like no other pieces anybody know what game im talking about?|
|Nov-21-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: <morfishine: Great, just great, another Reti play-on-word>|
Also, I believe this pun has been used before.
|Nov-21-15|| ||kevin86: A really nice finish!|
|Nov-21-15|| ||nalinw: Has anybody come up with a name for the alignment of Queen behind Bishop on a diagonal - especially the long diagonal?|
How about Reti's Rapier?
|Nov-21-15|| ||jith1207: May be, Rapier Reti-culous?|
|Nov-21-15|| ||piltdown man: "Reti and Yating", maybe?|
|Nov-21-15|| ||andrewjsacks: <nalinw> Good suggestion.|
|Apr-13-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: How about the following for a GOTD title:
<Dew on the Ground>
|Jun-03-16|| ||King.Arthur.Brazil: After the 'natural' 31...Nd6 (if 32.Bxf7+ Nxf7 33.exf7+ Kxf7 and Black scapes). 32.Nc4 (threatned the Rd3 and Nd6, so the answer must be) 32...Nxc4 33.Rxc4 and black can't avoid 34.Rd8 or Bxf7+ that win the Ng6. Black has lost position, so resigns.|
|Jun-04-16|| ||Ron: There are quite a few kibitzes here without concrete analysis. |
After 12. ... Bd7, Stockfish 7 evaluates the position as 0.00.
Reti's 13. Qa1 is not a bad move, but it is not "profound" either.
After the game continuation, 13. Qa1 Ng6 14. Rfc1 Bc6 15. Nf1, Stockfish says that with 15. ... a5, Black would have a small advantage.
Chess history is transcended by computers.

Rewritten. Computers cannot even think for themselves (yet), much less transcend anything.
