Apr-16-05  Zaius: That's one determined black knight.
May-10-07  Mate Hunter: There are a lot of games where a knight mates the king during the first 10 moves. MacGrouther vs MacCann, 1893 is another game like this (knight mates the king during the first 10 moves in the Sicilian opening)...

  FSR: Another marathon game between these two: M Warren vs Jan Selman, 1930 Once again, Warren couldn't handle Selman's knight on the fifth rank.

  Phony Benoni: I'm not normally suspicious of games being contrived--but these two, between apparently the same two players in the same year, strike me as an awfully big coincidence.

  FSR: <Phony Benoni> True. Two Warren-Selman games in 1930, both 0-1 in a total of 11 moves? Seems fishy. It would be more plausible if they were both correspondence games and with opposite colors. Sometimes one plays two games against a correspondence opponent, one as White and one as Black.
