Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-16-20  jerseybob: This game is from a Marshall championship. According to Soltis, Browne asked after the game what white had on 28..Kc8 and Soltis had no answer. Later, Marc Yoffie's brother Joel, a 1500 player at the time, found the brilliant 29.Qg4+!!
Oct-16-20  Granny O Doul: <jerseybob> Wow, that's really great.
Oct-16-20  syracrophy: A spectacular move, <jerseybob>. When playing White through the full sequence (which is apalling) one may forget that he was not playing a combination out of his own but refuting Black's sac 26...♘c2?!, so it's not surprising that after 28...♔c8 29.♕g4+!! wasn't on the radar.
Oct-17-20  jerseybob: To complete the Soltis-Browne saga, here's their first game, the first time I heard of both players, from the 1964 NYC Junior(NY Times 8-2-64): Browne-Soltis 1.e4,e6 2.d4,d5 3.exd,exd 4.Nf3,Bd6 5.Bd3,Bg4 6.h3,Bh5 7.00,Nc6 8.Nb5,a6 10.Nxd6+,Qxd6 11.c3,h6 12.b4,Qf6 13.Be2,00 14.a4,Rfe8 15.Nh2,Bxe2 16.Qxe2,Nf5 17.Qf3,Qe6 18.Bf4?,Nfxd4! 19.cxd,Nxd4 20.Qe3,Qf6 21.Qd2(I think. The Times score is garbled),Qxf4 22.Qb2,Re2 23.Qc3,Rc2 24.Qd3,Rd2 25.Qe3,Qxe3 26.fxe3,Ne2+ 27.Kf2,Nc3 and here the score just ends. Resigns seems logical. Their final game that I know of was a draw in the 1983 U.S. Chp.
