Jul-30-06  notyetagm: What a great Black Sicilian game by Rossolimo! No wonder he played 3 ♗b5(+) against the Sicilian.
Apr-22-09  SimonWebbsTiger: I was flicking through some of Barden's archived "the Guardian" newspaper columns today. There is a funny fact - he played Mieses in his Hastings debut back in the 50s; Mieses played Paulsen in 1889(!); Paulsen himself was a contempory of Morphy. As Barden remarked, if you play him (and he still plays on the web) then you will have a sort of quick chess link back to Morphy!

  FSR: <SimonWebbsTiger> Indeed, and I have done just that. I hadn't known about Mieses vs Paulsen, 1889, but only about Bird vs Mieses, 1895, which is another route to Morphy.

  Tabanus: Played 28 Dec 1950.

The Times, December 29, 1950 says "The game was adjourned in a favourable position for the French master", so there may be some missing moves.

  roberts partner: The game score is complete. The time limit was 36 moves in two hours, and White's 37th was sealed.

  Tabanus: <roberts partner> Thanks! :)

I think the dates can be easily found in The Times. Someone should clone and write up Game Collection: Hastings 1950/51!
