Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-23-04  Jesuitic Calvinist: PSM-B was obviously disheartened and resigned a bit earlier than one might have expected. Referring to his prepared variation used in this game, Milner-Barry's comment was that Capablanca had "bust it."

I think Black had not counted on the in-between move 11.Bg5. Once the black queen is driven to e8, 12....d5 (as presumably intended) does not work because of Rxe5 and the knight on c6 is pinned.

At the end, if M-B plays 18....Kh8, he of course falls into the pattern Nf7+/Nh6 picking up the bishop on g4.

So 18....Kf8 is forced. I think after that he is losing another pawn or two but perhaps that is all. As noted above, the hyphenated one was probably too depressed to defend and ending against Capablanca 2 or 3 pawns down.

Either 19. Nxh7+ or 19. exd6 win another pawn immediately.

Jul-23-04  Jesuitic Calvinist: After the more serious chess content of the above post: Milner-Barry must have been one of the last players with a hyphenated surname to represent Britain (or any other country, probably). For those who know something about cricket, I read recently that former England captain Graham Gooch, who played his first test match in 1975, was the first player with a moustache to play for England since 1946.

If we think of the last world chess champion to have a moustache (and I mean customarily and not as a three-day binge-drinking party trick, and yes, I am referring to you, Mr AA), I suppose it would have to be Lasker.

Hyphenated surname? Mmmm.... Saint-Amant? That is, if you accept that he was a de facto world champion after winning his match against Staunton. Was his surname actually hyphenated? I've seen it with and without.

Jul-23-04  vonKrolock: <Jesuitic Calvinist> Norman-Hansen from Denmark, and, if my source is not putting hyphens were they do not had to stay, Nogues-Acuña from Argentina and Salas-Romo from Chile are other samples... <Graham Gooch, who played his first test match in 1975, was the first player with a moustache to play for England since 1946.> thanks ,i was willing to know this for quite a while, but dont knew how to ask... <Saint-Amant> a good french source will have off-course the hyphen here - voilà
Jul-24-04  vonKrolock: hmm... probably my source (an hungarian book on the 12 first Olympics plus Munich 36) is wrong about the hyphens - only Norman-Hansen & Milner-Barry are confirmed. <Graham Gooch was the first player with a moustache to play for England since 1946.> maybe i should say "thanks, i wished to know this all the while etc" :o)
