Jun-15-13  optimal play: <<<THE CHESS CONGRESS.>

The chess matches[sic] were continued in the Town Hall Exchange-room on Tuesday. The first game finished was that between Messrs. Crewe and Tullidge, which ended in the young Victorian scoring his first victory. Mr. Crewe tried the Queen's opening, and played a very nice game against his strong antagonist, who resigned on the thirty-seventh move. The time occupied was 2 hours 45 minutes.>

  An Englishman: Good Evening: If you had told me that was a Capablanca victory over a weak opponent, I would have believed you. Crewe seems to have been a fairly weak player, but at least he had this fine win to his credit.
Jul-29-15  Eusebius: What will be the winning follow up here?
Jul-29-15  shivasuri4: <Eusebius>, if Black plays a waiting move like g6, Kf5 or Kf7, White plays 38.Rxe6 followed by 39.Rd6+ and 40.Rxc6.

If he plays Bb5 or Be8, White captures the rook, and plays Rd6 followed by c6, breaking through.

Crewe was known as the Victorian's Victorian Victorian.

Jul-29-15  morfishine: Yawn...
Jul-29-15  optimal play: Nice pun.

Crewe did indeed maintain a steady control throughout this game, only accelerating at 27.b5! & 29.Bb5!

This was his first win in the tournament, and must have given him some confidence, since he scored a further two wins, managing to climb off the bottom of the table by tournaments end.

Also this is the second pun involving a game by Crewe

Gossip vs J E Crewe, 1887

5...Ne4 seems to have been a TN by Tullidge back in 1887

This move was used by Lasker against Marshall 20 years later in their world championship match, hence the name, Queen's Gambit Declined: Lasker Defence.

Of course poor ol' Tullidge can't compete with the great Emanuel Lasker when it comes to getting credit for introducing a line of defence, especially since he didn't even win this game!

<shivasuri4: <Eusebius>, if Black plays a waiting move like g6, Kf5 or Kf7, White plays 38.Rxe6 followed by 39.Rd6+ and 40.Rxc6. If he plays Bb5 or Be8, White captures the rook, and plays Rd6 followed by c6, breaking through.> Most obvious after 37.fxe3 seems to be 37...Bb5 then 38.Rxe6+ Kxe6 39.Rd6+ Ke7 40.c6 bxc6 41.b7 Kxd6 42.b8=Q+ etc
