Jan-14-05  Knight13: 35... Rxb2 followed by Rc2 and Black should be winning, or is there a reason why Black didn't play this?

  beatgiant: <Knight13: 35... Rxb2 followed by Rc2 and Black should be winning> How far down the line have you checked this? White can counterattack Black's pawns too, so I'm not sure it is winning.

Here is one example:

35...Rxb2 36. Ra8+ Kf7 37. Rb8 Rc2 38. Rxb7+ Kf6 39. Rd7 Rxc3 40. Rxd6+ Kg5 41. Re6 Rb3 42. Rxe5+ Kxg4 43. Rc5 Rxb4 44. Rxc6. Black takes four White pawns, White takes four Black pawns.

Feb-10-08  wolfmaster: Yes, this was a level draw between two good chess clubs. But shouldn't Paris be playing some old games?
Nov-08-21  Sally Simpson: This game started on the 23 April 1824 and finished on 14 December 1824
Nov-08-21  Z truth 000000001: Hi <Sal>

Would it be possible to mention a source when posting such info? It would be especially useful for those without your extensive background.

Nov-08-21  Sally Simpson: Hi Z,

There is source on this site:

Game Collection: 1824 Edinburgh Chess Club vs London Chess Club

There is also:

Nov-08-21  Z truth 000000001: Thanks Sally, sourcing is always appreciated.

Looks like a great job by Calli, one which some editor might consider promoting to a tournament page.

Nov-08-21  Sally Simpson: It is a good piece, there is a link to it.
Nov-09-21  Z truth 000000001: Yes, <Sal>, agreed. But I want a link to the same match page for each of the games at the top.

Eg. <Correspondence match (1824)> at the top of this page should be a link.

Something amiss. Where's <Mel Gibson>?

Nov-10-21  Sally Simpson: Hi Z,

You will have to ask the powers that be to link things up.

Nov-10-21  Z truth 000000001: Yes <Sally> that's kinda what I was driving at.

Maybe a post in the Bistro is needed?

(<Missy> could do it with a snap of her fingers.)
